My husband and I travelled from Nova Scotia, Canada to Coronado , California for Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. From the moment we stepped onto the hotel property we were treated like celebrities. The staff of this hotel are phenomenal, many we spoke to were second generation workers of the hotel, and all were so proud of the property. We stayed in the Cabana section of the hotel, off to the left of the main pool, and only steps from the beautiful Coronado Beach. The hotel is incredibly clean, the beach is meticulously groomed, and the gardens around the hotel are gorgeous, especially considering they only get 9 inches of rain a year !!
The food was delicious, the island itself is a jewel to discover. It is connected to San Diego by a bridge, only a 10 minute water taxi ride direct to downtown San Diego, and well worth a walk around Coronado island. Home to many retired Air Force officers and military folk, it is a tiny little piece of paradise. The hotel was hosting many conventions and several wedding while we were there, but we never once felt crowded or overlooked by the staff. The service in every area of the hotel property was second to none. We travelled a very long way to get there but the memories we made at the Hotel Del Coronado will surely help us to find our way back there again. Thanks for everything !
