I am willing to pay oodles for a drink and a good time but this place was ridiculous.
Okay, I have to get up and get my own drink--fine. But the tables were dirty and the service - non-existent. Not what I expected from a "swanky" place like the Del.
Since there are no servers (I don't know who the young, uniformed staff are who wander around doing nothing), I belly up and order drinks. After tip, my order came close to $100 for 2 cocktails and 2 non-alcoholic beverages for my two boys. Whatever, I don't care. We are here to enjoy the view with a cocktail and drinks before we decide where to go for dinner.
Unfortunately, my son bumped his head on one of the precariously sharp-cornered trash cans lined up along the walkway. I asked each and every one of the passing "staff" for ice and they WOULD NOT HELP. I approached two morons chatting away next to the snack bar. They looked a little put out that I interrupted their conversation and told me to ask the bartender. Meanwhile, my son's eye swelled shut.
I asked the bartender for ice in a plastic bag and he said he didn't have a bag but gave me a plastic glass with ice cubes.
This was our first trip to Coronado and I loved the vibe of this town, but I will never set foot at this hotel again-not even for drinks! The service SUCKED. I guess they don't give you the time of day if you don't look like a movie star. We were dressed pretty casually, but we didn't look like hobos! And we had money to burn. NEVER EVER AGAIN.
