Great historic hotel
History, activities, beachfront, atmosphere, beautiful, well kept, friendly helpful staff, lots of shops restaurants and bars within the hotel, walking distance to everything in Coronado.
Expensive. The Del is a super cool historic hotel but it costs an arm and a leg to stay there and you dont get a lot of bang for your buck. The rooms are basic, nothing special. They offer lots of activities but nothing is included, everything costs extra and nothing is reasonably priced. Also there was construction going on during our stay the ocean isnt quite as peaceful with heavy equipment operating all day.
Local family mini vacation
We loved our upgraded ocean view room.
The jacuzzi was about 85 degrees which was about 1 degree warmer than the pool. This was a huge disappointment since it was cold the day we were there. It really limited the things we would comfortably do with 3 little ones with it being cold.
Quaint and romantic but showing its age
Beautiful building, tons of history with a location that is second to none! Great places to eat and lounge all within steps of one of the most beautiful beaches in America! Incredible staff, always makes you feel welcome and at home.
Cramped room with “quirky” bathroom, although, some may find it charming. Bed was uncomfortable as it seemed we were sleeping on a decline, we turned around and slept in the opposite direction. I’m sure they would have assisted but it wasn’t a huge issue to just deal with it so we did. Wallpaper was peeling in some parts and just overall looked like it needed some updating. Expectations were VERY high as it has always been a dream to stay here, although I’ve spent nights in hotels of all ranges, this was one we expected to be a bit more up to its price per night standard.
Our TV didn't work...
We have always wanted to stay here for a romantic getaway
We had to wait for our room
The location was outstanding.
The room wasn't very clean - dusty baseboards and window blinds. It was also pretty loud, with door-slamming making sleep elusive.
Historic resort but pricey
The main building is charming, decadent and very unique. You'd be hard pressed to find another beachside resort like the Del
The towers are the opposite: not charming, cheaply built and the polar opposite of the Victorian main. Also, everything was twice the price includes the brunch.
Paid For an Ocean View...got a Tree and a Bathroom
Beautiful location and great food!
We paid for an ocean view and they stuck us on the second floor where our view was the back wall of the pool bathroom and a giant tree. Could barely see the ocean at all.
Always a great staff, beautiful room, all of the history of the Del, and romantic atmosphere.
Everything was so clean and beautiful.
Cost was a bit much. Nickeled and dined you for everything you did
Great Family Vacation Destination
Amazing location, super kid friendly with all sorts of activities. Great pool and service too! Sunday buffet was one of the best I've had.
We stayed in the ocean towers which does not look like the other buildings and is a tad outdated with a CD player. Our refrigerator had to be fixed and at one point the hot water stopped working. I'll go back but stay in the main building next time.
Good and Bad
Great near the beach and restaurants
The toilet leaked and flushed all the time we were there, night time it was really annoying. Also, the automatic light feature in the bathroom kept going on throughout the night probably 20 times! Very thin walls and ceiling. Definitely not worth the money, but as a one time stay over.
Cant wait to go back!!!!
