“Gorgeous property, high prices”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We had reserved a king bed superior room through Priceline but when we arrived they said we had a different level of room. So I wasn't impressed with that, felt a little bait and switch like. But it got corrected and it all worked out and we got a lovely room.

pros: Staff were all great, made for a pleasant stay. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. The sunsets at Cays Lounge were a slice of heaven. Pitcher of local beer at the lounge was only 25 bucks... best deal in the entire resort.

The pool area is gorgeous and spacious, but the painted concrete is SLICK. I almost slipped several times.

The beach isn't on property, but it's a very easy walk (or golf cart ride) -- there's a walkway/tunnel under the highway to the beach, and it's a lovely beach.

Cons: The prices were too high for everything. 8 bucks for beer, 13 bucks for a small sandwich at the to go cafe. We didn't have a car but we were lucky a friend could take us to a grocery store to get some breakfast items and beer so we wouldn't have to pay the outrageous prices for absolutely everything. BUT, there was no fridge in the room, just a lame "cooler"... basically an unplugged and non-functioning fridge that didn't keep anything cold. That was really annoying.

Also, for some reason we could hear EVERYTHING out in the hallways. We could make out entire conversations of the people walking by. We sleep with white noise so that helped, but jeex you'd think a nice place like this would have better sound-proofed the rooms.

OH YEAH, one more thing
We checked out the nearby Calypso Cafe.. it was hard to tell on Google maps but it was VERY close, easily walkable (and a pleasant walk) and the cafe was great.. good food, reasonably priced, great view. It's worth checking out.

Room Tip: King suite was spacious and comfortable. We traveled with an infant so we had plenty of room for the...

Gordie Berry, the Concierge at Lowes Coronado Bay was fabulous! He recommended great restaurants, had wonderful ideas for us to experience San Diego, Temecula, Wine Tasting, Olive Oil Tasting. He is a foody and his recommendations were spot on! Make sure you talk with him if you are staying at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort.

Overall resort very good. Nice pool, spa and amenities. Staff very nice, but service slow. Had to ask 3 times for a roll away bed ( that was in our reservation).
Market restaurant was family friendly, but also slow. Resort was very pretty, in a great setting on bay next to Marina. You could walk to Beach. Set by itself in Coronado. Not near downtown, about 3 miles away.

The hotel was beautiful! I wish we could have stayed longer than one night! Our room was amazing, the staff was awesome.

Callie was so helpful when checking us in and Marco was a delight when we checked out!

We would definitely stay there again!!

My Mom, daughter and I went for 5 days at the resort and had an amazing time---we loved everything about the resort and had great service throughout. We enjoyed the short walk to the beach and the golf cart rides too! The chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and towels at the beach were a really nice touch and so convenient. The pool was great for kids and adults as well--my daughter took advantage of the marshmallow roast and the outdoor movie. We didn't get a chance to rent a bike, but they were available nearby. The resort was about 4-5 miles from the main town of Coronado, but we liked the more remote, relaxing location. Our room view was of the Bay---we had a Coronado King room and could also see over to Silver Strand beach. I would definitely go back to this resort, we were not ready to leave--awesome trip!

Room Tip: Get a Bay view or a Villa Bay view (ask for one in which you can see the Bay/San Diego and also see...
