grand del mar no. 1 luxury el, tripadvisor reviewers say

san diego’s grand del mar, which two years ago was sold to fairmont els, is regarded as the top luxury el in the country, thanks to users of the tripadvisor website.

the only other san diego county property to make it onto tripadvisor’s top 25 luxury resorts in the nation was rancho valencia resort & spa in rancho santa fe, ranked at no. 17.

tripadvisor’s 2017 traveler’s choice awards rely on millions of reviews collected in a single year from tripadvisor travelers worldwide. the top properties are distinguished by “remarkable remarkable service, value and quality.”

the 400-acre resort, which last year was ranked in the second spot, was also one of four els in the county to earn aaa’s annual five-diamond rankings, according to an announcement friday by the automobile club of southern california.

joining the carmel valley el are the park hyatt aviara resort in carlsbad, the lodge at torrey pines and rancho valencia. they are among just 14 southern california els to be awarded five-diamond rankings. addison, the fine dining restaurant at the fairmont grand del mar, was just one of two restaurants in southern california to earn the five-diamond distinction.

unlike tripadvisor, aaa hands out its top rankings based on multiple, unannounced visits and inspections. el inspectors have a list of more than 100 items to evaluate, looking at everything from landscaping to the number of extra pillows.

also released friday was its list of four-diamond els. in san diego county, 26 els and resorts qualified for a four-diamond rating. in addition, 10 restaurants in the county were awarded four diamonds.
