"Beautiful place and good food but bad experience with hotel management"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed February 21, 2018 NEW
We were sitting out on the beautiful patio of the Shearwater restaurant having breakfast and there was loud obnoxious music coming out of the speakers. We asked That the music be turned down or off. We were told that the hotel manager said it had to stay on. We tried to reach the hotel manager and were unable to and were told that the music would be turned down but it was not, at least not noticeably. It is sad when a nice experience is lessened by rigid and unhelpful rules and poor communication among management. It is also sad that in such a beautiful place with ocean breeze and soft conversation, that the hotel needs obnoxious music. Despite the good food the whole experience leaves a poor taste

We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel del Coronado and stayed in the main lodge. However, it was expensive in all aspects, including dining. We enjoyed the location right on the beach, and found it convenient for all of our wedding-related activities. It was a memorable stay in a charming town.

I’ve long been drawn to stay at this historical landmark hotel affectionately known as “The Del” (it’s red turreted roof and white painted all-wood assemblage are an architectural marvel and the allure of Coronado’s beach are enough to attract), and what a magical place it really was — to be on this charming island at such a grand hotel celebrating our 17th wedding anniversary (and my 50th trip around the sun) was indeed, a treat. The view from our room was “picture perfect” and the overall experience lingers in the mind as absolutely magical. The charm of this place need only be explained with the lobby’s caged elevator —the eccentric operator was totally Harry Potter A relaxing and glorious seaside resort all its own, The Del is a Victorian extravaganza located on 28 pristine oceanfront acres presenting a peerless beachfront playground setting of glittering sand that is simply unrivaled. Did I say glorious? For generations, the iconic Hotel del Coronado and its gold-flecked sands have served as a backdrop for timeless experiences —including ours. The friendly and accommodating hotel staff were informative —even entertaining. I can’t say enough for the place: the timeless grounds, kids playing in the sand (including The Sandcastle Man who creating artistic masterpieces in the grains of golden sand), a backdrop (and soundtrack) of crashing surf along the peninsula with Point Loma on the horizon. And the sunset(s) —no words. The Del’s commanding beachfront location, stately architecture and resplendent ambiance are unsurpassable. I could gaze at this beautiful structure all day and never leave —I wouldn’t have to, either: The Hotel del Coronado has all the resort amenities you’d expect and more. The only complaint I had (if you could call it that, though there seems to be some consensus on the issue) would be the hope for a more spacious bathroom. There are three restaurants (including a Sunday brunch) and several bars where you could find a drink or bite to eat —we ate at two: The Babcock & Story (B & S Bar) and The Sheerwater —both places serve up fine seafood (and absolutely delectable hot chocolate) and the only complaint I heard was the higher than average price tag on the menu items —which, believe me, was worth the money. This year, the hotel celebrates its 130th anniversary and the place echoes with its storied past like none other. There’s a lot of famous names to be found on the guest register —including a ghost: Kate Morgan, who checked in under the alias Lottie A. Bernard on Nov. 24, 1892 and was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head five days later. Those who stay in her room (#3327, the most requested) continue to report paranormal activity. Guests and maids claim to have seen objects and doors moving of their own accord and even the woman’s ghost down hallways and stairwells. However, Ms. Morgan is not the only famous name you’ll see on the roll: luminaries like Lucille Ball, Frank Sinatra, John Wayne, Charlie Chaplin, Charles Lindbergh have stayed here —and the list goes on (including plenty of U.S. presidents —from Harrison, Taft and FDR to Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan and onward, many of whom held meetings in private rooms here). Some Like It Hot, with Marilyn Monroe and Jack Lemmon, was made here in 1958. and "The Stunt Man," starring Peter O’Toole was filmed at The Del in 1977. In the gift shop area inside historic photographs and extensively detailed notes depict the resort’s storied past from when Elisha Spurr Babcock, along with Hampton L. Story, and Jacob Gruendike purchased the entire Coronado peninsula for $110,000 in 1885. When $1 million was raised from lot sales a year later, the three, along with architect James Reid, proceeded with their plans to build a seaside hotel which quickly became “the talk of the Western world.” The Crown Room’s lavish Sunday Brunch held under its spectacular 33 ft. high ceiling constructed of gorgeous Oregon sugar pine (another architectural achievement considering there are no pillars interrupting the view of the 160 x 60 foot room) is one of San Diego’s Best! Like Mark Twain, Baum was a newspaper reporter who worked his way west, settling in Coronado in 1904. Upon his first arrival at the hotel he was quoted in the San Diego Union, “… those who do not find Coronado a paradise have doubtless brought with them the same conditions that would render heaven unpleasant to them did they chance to gain admittance.” And I couldn’t agree more (keep his words in mind when encountering negative reviews) —come to The Del, you won’t be disappointed. This place should be on everybody’s “Bucket List!”

"Stressful daycare like environment "
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5

We visited the Del, staying in the Beach Village. At a price point of over a $1000 per night, we would have expected stellar service in a quiet, serene environment. What we got was a stay overrun with large families and literally hundreds of small children from infants on up, crying all night and screaming in the pools and dining area. Honestly, it is reminiscent of Disney world. Don’t get me wrong...I love kids and have multiple of my own, but I was shocked as we expected a quiet, relaxing getaway. Due to the way the rooms in the beach village are made, it was impossible to get away from the crying babies. Be warned that the balconies are shared balconies and built right on top of eachother, so you will have neighbors you hear on all sides, right to left and top to bottom. Also, beware that the hotel del us a major tourist attraction so in addition to the above, you will also be fighting a massive influx of tourists for a seat on the hotel grounds. My advice: if you’re looking for a peaceful vacation, stay elsewhere. My advice to the Del: if you’re going to charge 1000+ a night for a secluded village, at least make it adults only so there is some peace and quiet.
