I just finished my 4th stay there, and after doing a lot of online research, I've kept coming back to the El Coronado after being unable to find a better combination of price, location, and amenities. Previously I've stayed on the 6th floor, for the view, and disliking noise from overhead, but this time I had to request a room on a lower floor after the 1st night because either the AC compressor or air recirculators made such a loud throbbing noise it gave me a headache. The third floor room I moved to was fine. I heard another guest complaining about the same thing at the front desk so I know it wasn't just me. Hopefully this can be rectified by next year. My biggest complaint is the about the 12 hours a day the pool loudspeakers are playing a commercial top 40 radio station. Since most people have I-pods and other personal music devices these days I would recommend doing away with the poolside music entirely. Then it would be possible to read in peace or just sit on the balcony and enjoy the sounds of the surf. Other than that, my latest visit served its purpose of recharging my batteries and having fun.
