“Here is what to expect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

This was our second stay at the Del after a surprisingly disappointing first stay last year in the historic part of the hotel. We decided to give it another chance, and found out about the Beach Village during our research. We were very pleased, and that says a lot given how expensive it is.

First, the Beach Village is gated off from the chaos of the main hotel.It is quieter and has a variety of acommodations from kitchenettes, to ground floor beachfront suites (which we had...junior suite). We always read the worst reviews first in TripAdvisor to see what made someone that upset. One complaint the Beach Village Beachfront Suite had was the foot traffic on the boardwalk right in front of your patio. Yes, there are people on a side walk 40 feet away on the other side of a fence....but they are not a problem at all. In fact, we opened up the french doors COMPLETELY and let the breeze flow into the room. My wife and I are very private and did not feel intruded upon.

Now, your experience could be impacted by who your neighbors end up being. Screaming kids would be a problem, but we were fortunate in quiet neighbors. The rooms CAN be shared with a common door, and we did get a quick "Howdy Neighbor" from our dorky neighbor across the common gate but that was it.

We had a "private" jacuzzi, but private meant only for us to use....not that you are away from public view. There are very nice Beach Village only pools and jacuzzi's as well.

The room was beautifully appointed. Awesome tub to soak in. 2 seperate sink areas. Beautiful gas fireplace. Full movie selection available on TV but $15 for a $5 movie rental back home. We used room service and it was all around excellent. You are assigned a concierge (Thanks Sasha!) who was wonderfully helpful. The Beach Village only clubhouse is very nice and the breakfast was first rate. The rooms are wonderful all morning but the afternoon sun is either really intrusive or bright and happy depending on your viewpoint.

To say we would stay again, the experience must be worth the money or more. The Beach Village is VERY expensive.....as is the Del in general. We would stay here at the Beach Village again.

Be prepared to tip, and you will be pampered. If you are impossible to please then you will find fault. We had a great time. THe staff at the Del try hard to exceed your expectations.

Room Tip: Stay in a Beach Front Junior Suite. It is quiter, and it's just you and the beach!

We stayed at the Beach Village for 8 nights. The hotel and service were exceptional. Our room was a two bedroom surf suite. It two beds and two baths, a full kitchen and living area, as well a fire pit on the patio - this was great and we used it almost every night. Our room was basically on the beach, just the common beach sidewalk and fence separated us from the beach. The room was great and very well maintained. Room service was excellent. The whole staff was friendly and very helpful. My wife, daughter, and I had a great time, the cabanas on the beach were excellent as well. I would highly recommend and will return if in town again. Thank you.

I decided to take my wife to the Hotel Del for her birthday, which fell right after our 31st anniversary. Through some divine intervention, we were able to book the Beach Village at The Del. Staying at The Del was sort of a bucket list item for me and I surprised my wife with the trip as she did not know where we were going or staying when we left. When she found out, she was ecstatic.

No matter our level of anticipation, the experience itself far exceeded anything we could have imagined. I travel extensively in my business and stay in fine hotels all over the world. What I can say about The Villages and The Del is simply this: I have NEVER experienced the level of courtesy, hospitality and professionalism in a hotel/bar/restaurant staff as we did at The Del. The experience as to how we were treated as guests was incomparable. Everyone was friendly, diligent in responding to requests and thoroughly interested in our comfort and enjoyment as guests. The level of service is unparalleled by a factor of the "enth" degree.

The lodging, shopping, drinking and dining experience is unlike anything I have ever seen. I have never been anywhere where such a great group of folks work. If you ever have the chance to stay there, don't just take it, jump on it! You won't regret it. I can't wait to go back

Room Tip: Got one on the beach. While the privacy is less than interior rooms, sitting on the patio watching...

I had stayed at the Beach Villas here at the Hotel Del Coronado! Just loved the private villa at the coast! Easy access to the beach walk, private pool or jacuzzi. The view so spectacular and the morning brunch at the private entrance with no waiting. It was a wonderful pampered experience for my fiance' and I. We will be back again!

Beach Village, We've stayed at the Beach Village several times now and continue to return. The property and amenities are very nice - mostly. If you get a room your not happy with they will do everything they can to move you. Some of the rooms - third floor are tired - carpet and furniture. The second floor is our favorite - the furniture seems a little newer and the balcony has an over hang to shield you a bit from the sun. The breakfast is very nice and filling - over all the staff is very accomodating.

Thank you for returning to Beach Village. The Beach Village team works tirelessly to maintain firstclass accommodations and genuine services that appeal to our influential travelers. We commit to this standard regardless of the property's age. By mid-fall 2013, all guest rooms and suites will be refreshed wiping away any sign of the harsh oceanfront climate. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

We stayed in the Beach Villas at the Del for three days in October of 2012. It was one of my bucket list hotels. I was so excited as we walked through the lobby and shops and visited the pool and terrace area. My excitement flattened as we walked into our room. How ordinary. And to think we paid such a high price.

The view was spectacular. The amenities were awesome. The room was commonplace. The food was disappointing. Go somewhere else to eat. Stay somewhere else to sleep. The view from the beach is free.

We rented one of the villas. it was a 3 bedroom villa and very luxurious. I went with family and we had the best time of our lives. Hung out in the room. The room came equipped with two balconies over seeing the entire ocean. Great place for families and couples. Pools were clean and great part was it wasnt too crowded. Restuarants around the area are expensive, especially if you eat on the resort. the only cheap fast food is a dominos pizza. Make sure to make a reservation at the restuarants because they do get filled up and it is almost impossible to get in without one. Especially on a holiday weekend. They even have an adult only pool which was a plus.
