We have been going to Coronado for over 20 years, and it never disappoints no matter what the season. While it has first class amenities, including the world famous Hotel Del Coronado (which great music in the lounge, great shops, and a perennial band on the pool deck overlooking the ocean), it is also very laid-back, casual, and relaxing.

This oasis away from the big city of San Diego is surrounded by water and filled with fun. The flat streets are easy to navigate and ride bikes, walk or run on. There are plenty of restaurants and hotels. The beach has been voted #2 in the US for a good reason: it's broad, long, and has gorgeous sand. The... More

A beautiful community that takes care of their property and community. Always a nice place to visit. Check out the harbor then swing by the hotel on the beach side.

Having only a short time in San Diego while our cruise ship was in port, we were thrilled to have been able to visit Coronado Island and its famous Hotel. The island itself is quite charming and has wonderful views everywhere. The Coronado Hotel is gorgeous inside and out, as is its beach and surroundings. Great place to have a... More

Coronado Island is fun, vibrant place to be. This was my second time to the island, but it won't be my last. We stayed at the Hotel del Coronado, which was beautiful. The local stores and restaurants were great. The beach is perfect. We can't wait till our next visit.

Liked the Beach, the Restaurants, the Views, the Cleanliness, the laid-back attitudes, the Del Coronado, the Glorietta Bay Inn, the weather, the ease of access to all areas (except the Naval Base).

One of our best time around San Diego was to walk the beaches and El Corodano is worth visiting. Nice town to wind down next to the city of San Diego.

If you are spending time in San Diego, I highly recommend visiting Coronado Island. It's is a very short drive from downtown San Diego, and it's well worth it! The island is absolutely beautiful. There are several restaurants and many cute little shops. The beach on Coronado is amazing. The famous Hotel Del Coronado is gorgeous. This is a great... More
