Fodor's Expert Review L'Auberge Del Mar

1540 Camino del Mar, Del Mar, California, 92014, USA

Each room at this oceanfront luxury hotel is reminiscent of an airy beach cottage with plantation shutters, a fireplace, and vintage coastal artwork; balconies face the ocean and pool where guests lounge in private cabanas. Active travelers can surf 15th Street (there's surfboard rental next door), hike neighboring Torry Pines, or hop on one of the complimentary Electra Beach Cruisers to explore historic Del Mar. For wellness by the sea, book a facial, wrap, or massage at the on-site spa, where treatments integrate seaweed extract and other nourishing marine-based minerals.
