A magnificent example of ornate Victorian architecture, this 150-year-old Coronado Island beauty was constructed of Douglas Fir and Californian Redwood and set among lush tropical gardens. Guest rooms today eschew the nostalgic vibe of the public spaces, instead offering breezy, light-filled white-on-white settings accented with pops of tropical color. A glamorous pool lined with swaying palm trees is the main hub of the property, featuring cabanas and views of comely Coronado Beach, considered one of California’s best. The Spa at the Del offers a range of treatments both pampering and results-focused, from Vitamin C-infused facials to Thai massage.
In the Area
While the legendary Hotel Del itself is one of Coronado Island’s main attractions, other reasons to explore do exist, namely the community’s sublime parks and beaches. Hop on a bike and traverse the 15 miles worth of paths spanning the town, stopping by Spreckles Park to check out the Art in the Park twice-monthly open-air exhibition, showcasing San Diego artists. Then catch a flick at the cool Village Theater, an Art Deco gem that was restored and reopened in 2011 and now screens of-the-moment movies.
How to Get There
The staff here was incredible. From check in to fitness center to pool and rec staff...everyone was amazing. The beaches were fabulous, and I loved our room. Thank you Hotel Del for a fabulous weekend!
We stayed two nights for a conference. The very good - my wife twisted her ankle on the grounds and the staff were very good about bringing her ice and a tensor bandage. The good - room was quite spacious and quite comfortable. The grounds are very nice as is the beach are. Additionally the food we had at the conference was quite good. The not so good - had to wait for 5 to 10 minutes for hot water in the shower and we had a heck of time getting the room cooler in the evening. Overall a character hotel it’s a lot of history and uniqueness to it and while I enjoyed our stay overall the price is quite high for what you get.
Our stay at this hotel has been awful. Check in super slow . We get to our room and the ac does not work . They know it doesn’t work and despite this rent the room and place a portable ac unit in the room with a hole cut in the wall for venting . We are in a spot where the sun beats in the back so to cool the room the curtains have to be closed all day . Our tv does not work correctly . Twice have called maintenance because tv will not turn on . Have complained to management and they refuse to move us or return our calls . The service has been marginal at best . Come and visit but do not stay here!!!
This is an absolutely beautiful place to stay. The beach location couldn't be more perfect. Everyone was so helpful and accommodating. The only thing I would change is that were under a huge construction project and the weather while we were there was unseasonably cold.
good location and Coronado quaint area, nice location to base surrounding area sight seeing; but very tired hotel and grounds and service lacking, pool and spa area terrible and in need of major repairs
