We just got back from our stay at the Dell dated June 4th. I was very apprehensive due to the bad reviews on keeping our resv for ocean front room at the Dell. Our 3 night stay started very rocky, but it ended great. First off the bell desk didn't approach us when we pulled up due to them extremely busy. We had to get our luggage out of the car ourselves. We went up to the bell desk to have them store our luggage for us until we came back to check in. When we came back we decided to do self parking and to save the extra $. We circled around the parking lot for at least 30 minutes or longer to get a parking space. We couldn't get a parking spot due to the tourists and the construction workers. I guess no room for their guests. My suggestion for anyone DO NOT DO THE SELF PARKING until the construction is all done!! When we finally got into our room at the Ocean Towers our faces turned from a frown to a happy face. The ocean front room was big. Loved that 42 inch TV. The bathroom was big with 2 sinks and of course the view of our beach was fantastic. We saw that the construction at the Ocean Towers was going on the 1st and 2nd floor. We were on the 3rd floor. On our 2nd day there we heard jack hammering. It sounded like it was next door. We didn't let this upset us we went and toured San Diego. Other then the jack hammering we heard very little noise from the construction. Of course we weren't in our room for most of the day to hear all the construction. Most of the time we were back by 3pm and the construction workers had all gone or was finishing up. So the construction wasn't an issue for us. We did eat the breakfast buffet and the food and the service was top notch. Well worth the $20 pp price. We didn't eat anywhere else at the Dell due to their high prices. Our bill didn't include $70 in charges. We weren't charged for the valet parking for 2 days and we ordered 2 in room movies but was charged just for one of the movies (we didn't let them know!). I have no problems on going back to the Dell if we do the Ocean Front room.
