Reviewed 9 April 2014

This hotel is historic, beautiful and right on the beach. We had a beautiful clean spacious room with balcony overlooking the ocean. Hotel is big so be prepared to do some walking. There are several restaurants and shops on property. The beach is public so that makes the beach crowded. The restaurants were crowded and customer service lacking. Hotel staff was friendly. The best part about this hotel is the location right on the beach.

Room Tip: Get and ocean front view room. Well worth the extra money.

Thank you for your comments on your recent stay at The Del. Coronado Beach was just named one of the Best Family Beaches in the U.S. We are thrilled that you enjoyed the ocean views and dining experience and look forward to welcoming you back soon.

We live in Southern California but my husband and I like to take a getaway at the Del in early September, when the crowds have left the beaches but the weather is still warm. Our kids have returned to school and it is a nice time to relax for us. We love the Del, the service is excellent. The best part however is the location just steps from the sand. The beach is rated among the best in the world. We have stayed in the Ocean Towers in the past and they were not my favorite - we have been told that they are preparing to renovate those buildings. They seem as though they do not belong with the rest of the property. The rooms in the Victorian building are nice but our favorite is an upper floor in the cabana rooms over looking the pool. Housekeeping is great, the rooms are clean and well cared for. The restaurants are all pricey but the food is good. Coronado Island is charming and quaint and close to San Diego. The rooms come with a small fridge and we usually bring our own breakfast and coffee and enjoy the mornings on the balcony overlooking the pool.

Room Tip: Ask for a cabana room overlooking the pool - as long as the pool noise does not bother you. I love...

This was my first stay at the Del and I won't be going back. Our room was in the towers. When I opened the curtains I had a view of the wall next to us. The furniture in the room was similar to a days inn. The property sits beautifully on the ocean so all was not lost but I wouldnt pay to stay here again unless you get in the main building.

Loved the resort and the people who hosted us. Everyone so friendly and the beach is beautiful. Great place to take family and getaway. So close to all the fun things San Diego has to offer. Loved the history of the place and vintage charm that was so well maintained.

Several years ago, my husband and I staying in San Diego and visited the Del for brunch. At the moment we entered the grounds, we knew we must come back to stay. We returned in the Spring for a two night stay. It was all that we expected. The Del is nothing but LUXURY!! There are many accommodations to choose from...we stayed in the hotel. The ocean rooms were booked and we had to settle for a garden view. The view was beautiful. Each morning, we enjoyed coffee on the balcony that over looked the well manicured gardens. We enjoyed a lovely on lunch on the veranda. The chef using herbs and veggies that are actually grown in gardens on the Del property. Once the sun went down we enjoyed cocktails at the outdoor bar. Words just cant explain the grandeur of this landmark. The shops on site are unique to the resort. The service was great!!! Some of the reviews stated that this place was lacking charm and elegance. I am not sure what they were expecting but it is FULL of both.... with that being said the DEL is a 100+ years old. They had kept the property up very well. Would return again for a romantic weekend.

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Del Coronado for a two-night getaway. We were assigned a room in the historic Victorian building. The room was small, but it was very well appointed and very quaint. The grounds are lovely and the views of the ocean are superb. There are a number of restaurants, bars and shops to patronize. Parking is an additional $37 per day and the resort fee in $25 per day. Look for seasonal specials and Del Perks to reduce overall per night costs.

The property clearly has a ton of history. However it is living on the history alone. The facility is showing its age and is in need of some attention. I expected it to have charm and elegance. The elegance was very much missing. Service at the property was poor. Long waits for drinks at the bar in the evening. Many heaters in the outside seating area did not work and staff could not get the portable units to work either. Overall a dissappointing experience. No plans to go back here with so many other options around San Diego.
