If you want to have a great visit to Coronado, you have to start here. The staff was so helpful in recommending things to do and places to eat. We could have stumbled around and had a good time, but I want to maximize our limited time here on the island. I would recommend taking 10 minutes to stop in,... More

This was the most ridiculous thing I have ever done in my life . It began with the tour guide speaking under a tree for literally 30 minutes about history that had nothing to do with the hotel. He started talking about Christopher Columbus. That tour was over 2 hours long and you see nothing. You can just go to... More

We stopped here first before going to eat or visit the beach. They were so nice, offering us coupons, a list of eateries, and suggestions. We accepted coupons for Miguel's which was a couple of blocks away.

Great little museum to get some background history on Coronado--lovely antiques from the Del Coronado, and vintage clothing. Be sure to get any restaurant coupons at the desk--handy!
