We were at the Del from July 25 to August 1 and had a wonderful time. Yes, the Del is expensive, but compared to other resort hotels we have stayed at during high season, we left feeling we got our moneys worth. We arrived early evening and check in was fast and friendly. We had specifically booked on the hotel website a standard non-view resort room and requested the Ocean Tower, as we did not want to stay in the Victorian buildings. At check in we were pleased to be told we were being upgraded to a full ocean view at our same confirmed web rate. The Ocean Tower rooms have been recently redecorated. Ours was emaculate with a contemporary design. Small balcony. Large flat screen TV. Marble titled bathroom with lots of wonderful amenties. Another reason one might choose a resort room in the Ocean Tower or Cabana building is that they are adjacent to the "adults only" Boardwalk pool. A nice feature for the Del, if you are traveling without children, as it is of course, a family resort. (And lots were there this time of year!) The main pool is noisy and full of youngsters. Pool side service at the "quiet" Boardwalk pool was wonderful. And the beach is just steps away. We ate at poolside, at the walk up fast food pool deck service and at all the on site restaurants and bar. Food and cocktails on site are very expensive, but we found the quality and service at all venues to be excellent. If one is willing to venture off site to downtown Coronado or into the city, more reasonably priced options are easily available. If your ideal vacation is a pool/beach side resort the Del is an excellent choice.
