Overview

Complimentary shuttle to anywhere within a 1 mile radius of the hotel
Resort fee does not include parking expenses
At the center of the Del Mar Village north of San Diego, L'Auberge Del Mar offers lavish comforts in a relaxed setting. Recent guests say that the friendly staff – particularly behind the front desk – were always eager to lend a hand. With plush beds and a light color palette, the rooms exude a quaint rather than ritzy atmosphere, according to visitors. The property also encourages visitors to take advantage of the treatments offered at Spa L'Auberge and the fresh seafood served at both Coastline and Living Room. But travelers say L'Auberge's best asset is its proximity to the beach – just a short downhill walk. The hotel's location also places guests near boutique shops, golf courses and Del Mar Racing track. Though there are hefty resort and parking fees at this hotel, other amenities like a fitness center, business center and complimentary shuttle service make staying here worthwhile.

READ MORE 

This seaside hotel has stunning views, outdoor fire pits, and a bustling nighttime bar scene, but what really sets L'Auberge Del Mar apart from other properties is its private footpath to one of San Diego’s preeminent beaches. Two other great qualities: its spacious Coastal-class rooms and proximity to downtown Del Mar.

READ MORE 

The 121-room L'Auberge Del Mar is a luxury beachfront property in the beautiful Del Mar Village and one of the top hotels on the Southern California coastline. Lovely, homey rooms have private balconies or terraces, some overlooking the ocean, though others have lackluster views of the parking lot (and might get noise).
