Catamaran Resort or Del Coronado

Thinking of staying in the Catamaran resort for our honeymoon (Mission Bay). Was also looking at the Del Coronado (but this one's a bit pricey and they seem to have hidden charges everywhere). The Del also seems to bein a much quieter area. We want to have bars restaurants to go to too.

Anyone have any feedback? thanks....

Given what you are interested in, go to Mission Bay. You've captured some of the "subtle" differences well and you know what's important to you. Irlnd - enjoy your trip!

The 2 hotels you mentioned are very different places. The Catamaran has a "tropical" decor. It is on Mission Bay and across the street is the ocean. The neighborhood has a kind of surfer feel to it.

The Del is a historic victorian hotel (with a new section as well) right on the ocean. It is in the town of Coronado which is directly across San diego Bay . You get to the rest of San Diego by ferry or over a short bridge. You can walk from the Del to many restaurants . The main street has a "small upper class town" feeling. Pick the one that makes you feel the most comfortable.

Thanks for your reply - we have booked the Catamaran Resort because of its location (we won't be renting a car)
