“Pleasant Convention Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Stayed two nights for an industry meeting. My room was nice sized in the California Cabanas but the bzthroom was tiny. Had to squeeze in to close the door. THe room was clean and well apointed. The grounds are very nice and the beach looked great. We had a group lunch on the Sun Deck Bar and the setting was very nice. All the staff I interacted with were pleasant and professional. The normal rates are pretty high compared to the convention rate, but i would come back again with family when there is time to enjoy this very special spot. One thing many people in my group commented on was there were very loud millitary helicopters flying by all during the day and into the night. Some said they had a hard time getting to sleep.

Went here on a business trip with nearly 200 of my colleagues in September. The hotel itself is very historic looking and the interior matches the classic feel. The beach was beautiful and views sublime if you had a beach facing balcony. I did not and faced the parking lot which was sad looking.

I would not come here unless it was a really special occasion and I wanted to take a chance mingling with a large crowd of tourists. It is priced on the higher end so buyer beware if you are traveling for personal. Food is also pretty expensive onsite.

We’re delighted that you enjoyed your stay at The Del and our location on the Best Beach in America. As a National Historic Landmark, the resort does get busy at times which is why we recommend visiting in the fall and springtime for a more intimate experience. We hope your travels bring you back our way again.

We just returned from a 4 night trip to the Del. It was mostly lovely...if you can, pay more to not stay on the back side of the hotel above the service entrance...you'll hear trucks and workers every morning at 6 AM....otherwise it was great. The food was good at every location on site, the wines @ Eno were soooooooooo nice....make sure you have ice cream at the Moo Time. Rooms were clean & comfortable. When we go back...we'll be sure to reserve ocean view room. Saturday brunch is a must!! Oh, and of course, the BEST location!!!!

Room Tip: Anything would be quieter than above service entry!

This place was just what the Dr. ordered! A place to relax and decompress from everyday life. Everything you needed was on site or just in walking distance. We enjoyed our stay so much we talked about making this a yearly trek. The shop keepers and staff at the hotel were so friendly and accommodating. The beach was clean and the pools were fantastic. Service was magnificent. We even enjoyed our elevator operators.(have to visit to understand). Don't waste your time looking for places to stay on the island. Just stay at the Hotel Del ! There is plenty to see and do right on Coronado. We rented bikes right behind the hotel and took a day biking. Many beautiful homes and neighborhoods. Make sure you take time to visit Point Loma and the lighthouse and tidal pools. The only surprise was the price for parking for hotel guests. Did not use the spa but heard from others it was great.

Room Tip: Our rooms faced the inside gardens and were wonderful. I would guess those facing the ocean were eve...

We love this place, and it never falls short. The beach is awesome, and and the hotel is so lovely. The prices are high, but the food is good at the different places. Gluten free is difficult to find, we still had a great time.

The Del is located on an absolutely stunning beach. The property is gorgeous! The spa was great too. However, the service and response to our issues was consistently terrible (outside of the spa). First and foremost, we complained several times about the noise outside of our room. We were there to relax, and if you can't sleep, well, that's an issue. The lovely people at the front desk refused to move us, and actually said that there was no noise! It sounded like a recycling plant outside our room. Then my "long distance" phone charge. I called NY. It was a $65 phone call for less than 1 hour. Their lovely response - all hotels are like this and they don't own the long distance company. My response - I recognize that the hotel is from the 1800's but being charged $2/minute is ridiculous. I stay at the ritz and 4 seasons on a regular basis, and they never would respond to a guest this way.
