We stayed here for two nights. Family of four in a villa. The villa itself was spacious and offered us plenty of room to spread out. King bed was very comfy. We requested a rollaway, so our boys each had a bed. (pull out couch is in the room). Kitchenette was nice. Bathroom was large and updated. The rug was a little tired.
Location is great. We walked over to Ferry Landing for dinner one night. Coronado is a small island so nothing is really "far".
Called around noon for early check. Our room was "vacant" but hadn't been made up yet. No problem. Arrived at hotel at 3pm (check in is at 4pm). We were told that the room wasn't ready yet -- when I said I called earlier, the front desk woman said that don't rush the room until the party arrives. She also said they were completely booked and behind on the rooms. I had requested the rollaway in advance - she said it would arrive later. Whatever.
Rented bikes from the spa to kill time. This was great - we explored the island, meandered up and down the side streets - rode up to the Hotel Del (didn't go in, though). The woman at the spa was great. Too bad I don't remember her name - she was the most helpful out of everyone. Bikes were $10 per hour - extra for basket and locks. We had the bikes for around 90 minutes and she only charged us for the hour since it was late in the day and we were the last rental. Nice.
Got into the room around 5pm. if we Only two sets of towels in bathroom. Called for more - they never showed. Called two more times - and they said they were very busy - hotel is sold out. We all needed showers - so I just walked over to the spa right next door and grabbed a couple more. (not sure if this is allowed, but no one said anything). Saw a rollaway leaving the room next door and asked the housekeeper if they could just put it in our room. Didn't want to take the chance that it wouldn't show up since they were so "busy". She was very nice and came back within 10 minutes to make it up for us.
The strange thing was, that although the resort was "sold out" - it didn't really seem like there were many people around.
Stopped by the restaurant for a quick drink before dinner. Sat outside - only one table was occupied and waiter never came over to greet us. Decided this wasn't a good sign so we just walked over to Ferry Landing for dinner.
Spent the next day bike riding at Mission Beach. This was great fun. Had breakfast before we left - just OK. Very expensive - but this is to be expected at a resort property. ($25 for the buffet - worth about $15) Ordered a couple of appetizers for dinner (room service). Nothing to write home about - but the food came relatively quickly and the food was hot.
Check out was simple.
Overall a good stay.
I would give 3.5 for the room (was dated - rug needs replacing and outdoor patio needed to be cleaned better). But the size was great for our family of 4.
A 3 for service - it was spotty.
3.5 for food.
5 for location.
We had a package with parking and internet included. However, I would have not been happy at all to pay $25 for self park and $12 for internet per night. That's kind of ridiculous.
Value was good since we had this package - but I would have rated it lower had we paid these extra charges.
