Romantic Del Mar Getaway!
What an amazing experience my wife and I recently had at L'Auberge Del Mar.
We arrived to the hotel early Saturday afternoon and immediately felt relaxed as the seasoned staff took over and guided us through the check-in process then walked us to the room. Wow! What an amazing view from our room... we recommend you upgrade to their 3rd floor interior rooms for the best ocean views. We treated ourselves to a few hours at Spa L'Auberge and got to spend time together in the co-ed relaxation garden at the Spa. On the walk back to our room we were drawn to the VERY hip Bleu Bar (pool bar) and enjoyed a couple of signature cocktails. When we eventually arrived back to our room, the hotel staff had sent Chocolate Dipped Strawberries and Champagne for our special day. We popped the cork, sat on our balcony and took in the view (see sunset image attached). While watching the surfers in the waves, we got to see a pod of dolphins swimming north up the coast, and a pod of whales heading south! We learned from the concierge that the whales migrate to Mexico this time of year to birth their calves.
This amazing evening finished with dinner at Kitchen 1540 in the private cabana on the patio. The food was amazing, and the service was exceptional (ask for Clyde)! Thanks L'Auberge for an amazing overnight retreat!
