    Del Mar Beach California
    Nestled on the sand in the heart of Del Mar, our beachfront retreat is close to everything you imagined (and more) for a memorable getaway. Stay onsite and the warm sand is just outside your door. Take a quick stroll and discover a wealth of dining and boutiques in the Village. A short drive gets you to all the attractions and events that San Diego is loved for. Come explore, gather and recharge by the sea.
  • A grassy beach full of people relaxing.
    Enjoy the Beach
    Warm your toes in the silken sand -- just steps from your room! The sparkling Pacific invites you and your family to dive in for a swim, grab a board, or simply relax together in the SoCal sunshine. We provide all the gear you’ll need for an unforgettable day at the beach: chairs, towels, boogie boards, cold drinks, wheelchair access, umbrellas, and more. The Beach Boys sang, “You'd catch 'em surfin' at Del Mar” in their 1963 hit Surfin’ USA, and this stretch of ocean remains one of the most coveted surf spots in San Diego county with conditions ideal for all skill levels.  The Del Mar Lifeguard Headquarters are conveniently located right next door, and just beyond you’ll discover grassy parks perfect for a spectacular ocean-view picnic or larger group gathering.
  • A packed restaurant
    The Best Food in Del Mar
    Stop by the lobby for a fresh coffee, latte or La Cimbali espresso. For heartier appetites, longtime local fave Poseidon Restaurant is mere steps from the hotel offering delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners with an ocean view, or meals to go. Take a stroll or hop on one of our beach cruisers to the nearby Village and discover a hip and vibrant shopping and dining scene. Welcome to the heart of coastal San Diego!
