“Absolutely exceptional!”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

II can't say enough about our stay at this resort. Really. I didn't know it at the time, but I was about to get engaged! The love of my life could not have picked a better place. It started with an awesome view of the ocean and the sunset. Our dinner was special and incredible--many courses with expertly paired wines by Chuck the Sommelier. The executive chef, Nicholas, is incredibly dedicated, diligent and talented. He came to our table to chat, check on us, and give us details of the dish we were enjoying. We had an exceptionally romantic dinner. I have to thank Nick for helping my fiancé create the "trickery" diversions to keep me from figuring out what was actually happening. Thank you! You helped to make a very memorable and special night for us.

Gordon, the Concierge, is one of those people that you picture the ideal concierge to be. Happy, welcoming, helpful, thoughtful, and full of energy. He helped my fiancé with details of the evening and when I finally met him that night, it felt like we were longtime friends. Thank you for being so kind to us.
You can tell the entire staff works well together -- Nicholas, Chuck, Gordon, and the spa manager. They all are worked well together and that made our stay that much more enjoyable. This was an absolutely perfect night to remember.

Room Tip: This was my first time staying at the hotel and the room we were in had a wonderful view of the Coro...

A marriage proposal has to be one of the most memorable experiences ever... our's was just that.
I can not say enough about the resort and the wonderful, warm people that made it so exceptional. From the logistical magic of the concierges, Gordon and Travis who made all the details come together seamlessly. Our wine sommelier, Chuck, who paired our multi course meal to perfection.
Most of all, extraordinary talent of our executive chef Nicholas, who created a meal as exceptional and wonderful as could ever be imagined. We can't rave enough about our experience and those who made it possible and perfect. If creating lasting memories is what your looking for, then you have come to the right place.

My husband, son and I had a fabulous vacation here. It started with Callie helping us at check in, Gordy assisted us in booking some fantastic excursions, and Elizabeth went out of her way to help us celebrate our anniversary and son’s birthday! Really all staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious and well maintained. The services provided made it easy to get to the beach and Coronado town area. We would gladly stay again!

The resort is a wonderful experience for both the staff and the property. Every staff member has a friendly greeting and Callie on the front desk is friendly, efficient and remembers names, making the checking experience a wonderful entry to the hotel. The rooms and bathrooms are large, with a window that allows you to get some fresh air and a view of the water. There is free WIFI which works well and power points at desk height that are very convenient. I got a free newspaper on one of the days I stayed (not sure if that was intentional). The coffee machine didn't work properly and I told the guy that was replacing the coffee. He said he would send another machine, but I still ended up with one that didn't work properly. The food available from the "market" in the lobby was good quality and value.

There is a great opportunity to run along the beach in either direction, with nice views.

Overall a great experience which staff being the big stand-out attraction.

Room Tip: Block 1 is closest to the lobby if you aren't in for a walk.

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...
