... Mar racetrack off-ramp and drive about 2 miles south to the heart of Del Mar. Quaint (and expensive) shops line the street, along with many restaurants and inns. Since my friend lives here with her grandmother, I am able to forego the lodging in town and stay just above the "strip" in a house with a view of the ocean. My friend's grandmother moved here with her husband 60 years ago from San Diego. When I asked her what made ...

I am sure many of have heard the saga of Darwin, our beloved red monkey that would travel with us and stay outside our cabin door on guard and led us to our room. On our last trip, we thought Darwin was stolen by someone on the ship. At Christmas, we were set straight. Leonard (a green and red lovable monkey) arrived and brought us a message from Darwin. He went on to further his studies. ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews L'Auberge Del Mar



    I had won a 6 night stay at the hotel in a deluxe room. The website showed that the rate for my room would have been $330/nt. My experience here was so terrible, I left after 3 nights. The balcony is a nice feature of the deluxe rooms, but you can only see a partial view of the ocean.



    This is an awsome hotel. Very classy decor and great staff. The beach is a short stroll down the hill and across the street is a small mall with restraunts.

    Our room had a lovely balcony. I highly recommend this hotel.

    Location, location, location


    Perfect location, alongside the beach, absolutely within walking distance to the beach and some very good restaurants and quaint shops. The rooms are very well appointed and comfortable and I found the staff to be great. The only disappointment could be the hotel pool. It is not that large, although there are ample chaises and poolside cocktails (pricey!!!) and food. If you are local, the train station is very close to the hotel and you could easily take the train for an overnight in paradise! Stayed June 2004.

    Worthy of its 4-Diamond Rating


    We just returned from spending 4 nights at L'auberge and had a wonderful time. The resort is very nice, and deserving of its AAA 4-Diamond Rating and inclusion in the 2004 edition of Resorts and Great Hotels. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and very accommodating of our 2 small children. The room, while somewhat small for the four of us (king bed plus crib and rollaway bed) was very, very nice and clean. The grounds were lovely, and the pool area, while not huge, was clean and well-maintained. The resort is one block away from the beach (and there's a great playground near the beach with a wonderful view of the ocean), and right in the town of Del Mar, which is a beautiful town with nice shops and restaurants (many of which are kid-friendly). Del Mar is only 20 minutes from the Zoo, Sea World and Legoland, so for us, the location was perfect. I highly recommend this resort.

    Romantic hotel


    Very charming hotel along the water. Great service, wonderful spa, and close shopping. Loved the fireplace in our room! I'd return and highly reccommend it.

    Pricey but nice


    We just had a one-night getaway from our 3 kids (all under age 4) and stayed at L'Auberge as a splurge - Feb '04. It was pricey, even with the negotiating my husband did since it was last minute as they weren't full but we appreciated the extras. We stayed in one of the 8 suites - for a suite it was small but it had a balcony and fireplace and was very clean. The grounds were kept up nice and very pretty. The service was great - they called you by name and were very forthcoming with offering ideas of where to go and what to do. My husband had also worked with Conceirge to arrange for a gift basket to be waiting for me in the room! The location is great with all the restaurants close by in walking distance - we made 3 reservations that night, including at the hotel ! It was hard to decide! We enjoyed Sbicca across the street. The beach is in short walking distance with paths to follow or just stroll on the beach. It is close to the railroad tracks but we only heard the train once or twice late at night or early morning while awake - it didn't wake us up - and we left our balcony door open with the fire lit so we could hear the waves. We had one run-in with room service - we called and ordered dessert rather than eating at the restaurant. After an hour, we called down and they said they had misplaced the order so it was never made. We just cancelled but probably would have been compensated had we made a stink about it. My husband and I each had a specialty spa treatment and loved the experience. Quarters are a little cramped but the services were nice. We'd visit again, for a special occasion.

    Great, but...


    We stayed at the Auberge in February and loved everything except that the location as suggested on the website is a bit misleading. I had envisioned the hotel being on cliffs overlooking the ocean, with a path down to the beach. Wrong! It's on a city street, with train tracks between the hotel and the public beach! Still, the hotel itself is lovely and we would stay again if in the area.

    Excellent service


    My first view was of a hotel that it was nothing special but that was a mistake. The service was excellent and very personal, everyone adressed me by name within a few hours of arriving but were not over the top about it. The bar knew by drink of preference after one evning and the restaurant was superb, and I am fussy about my food so that is a real compliment. As a female travelling alone I was made to feel totally comfortable but not patronised. Whilst the room was not large it was very comfortable, ditto for the pool, and the beauty salon was very good. Would strongly reccommend. In addition they have followed up with a mail to ask about my stay and then a personal letter to say thank you for responding. I wish it were close enough to go for the weekend.

    First Rate


    I stayed here for a business meeting and found the hotel to be really nice and relaxing, with all the amenites you could want (pool, spa, gym). It was a short walk to the beach as well as local shops. Bad experience with a massage but the hotel apologized, offered another one and re-inbursed me for the first. The food was outstanding and try the on-site French bakery for a treat! Best thing is the pool and work-out area overlooking the beach.

    L'Auberge is tops!


    When I first arrived at L'Auberge it was 11 a.m., I had a 3 p.m. meeting, and I was tired. They gave me an early check-in (the obvious signs of strain on my face, maybe?), and at first I was not that impressed with my room (it was nice, but I'd stayed at nicer hotels), but when I laid down for a short nap I felt as though I was resting on a cloud (corny, but true). It's been months since my stay there last May and I still talk about that feeling, the mattress, the bed linens, the Moonbeam clock on the nightstand waking me with light instead of an annoying, jolting buzz. I would never had stayed here if I wasn't forced too (work-related meeting) and now that I did have that experience I'm planning to stay there on vacation next June. I was also really impressed by the service and the salmon cakes at J. Taylor's restaurant. The free glass of champagne as I peruse the menu and the after-dinner sorbet, the room service, I can go on-and-on I loved this place!
