Arrived at the del and we were initially put into an area of the hotel called "California cabanas". It was pretty bad to say the least ! The room was like a motel and our view was .... Wait for it.... The hotel car park !!!!
We asked if we were able to change rooms and put into the main hotel. Our request was granted and our new rooms were superb. Each had a beautiful garden view and much more of a 5* feel overall.
We ate at both the artisan pizza restaurant and sheer water. The pizza place was slightly disappointing, however the setting made up for it.
Shearwater was great! Excellent food and very friendly service. Although slightly pricey this place is a must for a meal out in the evening.
Breakfast at the hotel was also good. There is a choice of a more formal buffet or simply taking something out from a Starbucks concession. The breakfast buffet was reasonably priced and had a fab view of the beach and the ocean.
It is also nice that orange avenue which is the main shopping steel in coronado is right next to the hotel. Plenty of boutique shops and cafes all fairly reasonably priced if you feel like leaving the del.
Overall a great finale to our fly drive holiday in the US !
