We stayed at the El Cordova in the Casa Grande suite for my daughter’s wedding in May 2012. I cannot say enough good things about our stay! We stayed for 6 days and it was the perfect place and the perfect wedding! First of all, the suite is perfect for all of the bridal party to get dressed in and for pictures. It’s around 1800 sq ft. My daughter even laid in the antique claw bathtub in her wedding dress for pictures. We had the wedding on the beach at the Del Coronado and promenaded down the street with the bride, walking from the hotel, it was breathtaking. We had the rehearsal dinner at the hotel in the courtyard and everything was perfect and beautiful! Staying in the suite provided a separate private entrance for us to have our privacy and for the bride and family. I suggest renting out the whole floor that has two or three other rooms on the same private floor as the Casa Grande suite. Micah the hotel manager was awesome, as was Christine the front desk attendant. All of the front desk gentlemen that set up the rehearsal dinner went over and beyond and made the night even more special in the courtyard. Christine went over and beyond all of our requests and helped in every possible way to make our stay comfortable. The shops and the restaurants in the hotel make one feel like they are in another country and we felt safe the whole time. One of the workers from the Mexican restaurant even cut up our cantaloupe for us when we had a barbeque in the courtyard one day. The happy hour at the sea food restaurant downstairs is great and reasonably priced as well. We had the wedding reception at the community center on the bay and it was a perfect walk from the hotel. We rented bikes from Lil Sam downstairs for the whole wedding crew every day and went around the island and loved seeing the sites. Just ask him where some of the cool spots are to visit and say Anthony from Arizona and the May wedding sent you! Most all of the rooms are unique and recently renovated with old world charm and antiques. All of the guest stayed at the hotel and had a great time at the beach and walking over to the Del to enjoy all of the concerts on the beach and activities they have daily. Something for everyone to do!! We hope to return for our 30 yr. wedding anniversary. Again, a wonderful pleasant experience!!! Anthony & Cheryl Luttrull
