  • The Mediterranean meets California at The Grand Del Mar. Expansive grounds with large grassy areas and walking trails allow plenty of space for kids to run and play. Onsite amenities include a wide array of sports, games, and swimming pools (adult, family, and children’s options) complete with underwater music. Traditionally decorated rooms are spacious; bathrooms are exceptional with deep tubs that have a prime view of the TV (a hit with kids). Dining options are varied with access to patios for a more casual experience. The resort offers a free shuttle to the surrounding area, including beach service although given the extensive amenities and services offered at The Grand Del Mar, there’s a good chance you won’t  leave the resort until it’s time to go home.
