Location was great.
The view could have been better, ocean front yes but construction right below which was distracting. Asked to be moved to a higher floor still ocean front to limit the construction view, but received a worse view: top of a hotel building had to turn to the far left to see the ocean. The rooms were not as clean as I expected in a newly renovated building.
Great historic hotel
History, activities, beachfront, atmosphere, beautiful, well kept, friendly helpful staff, lots of shops restaurants and bars within the hotel, walking distance to everything in Coronado.
Expensive. The Del is a super cool historic hotel but it costs an arm and a leg to stay there and you dont get a lot of bang for your buck. The rooms are basic, nothing special. They offer lots of activities but nothing is included, everything costs extra and nothing is reasonably priced. Also there was construction going on during our stay the ocean isnt quite as peaceful with heavy equipment operating all day.
Local family mini vacation
We loved our upgraded ocean view room.
The jacuzzi was about 85 degrees which was about 1 degree warmer than the pool. This was a huge disappointment since it was cold the day we were there. It really limited the things we would comfortably do with 3 little ones with it being cold.
Quaint and romantic but showing its age
Beautiful building, tons of history with a location that is second to none! Great places to eat and lounge all within steps of one of the most beautiful beaches in America! Incredible staff, always makes you feel welcome and at home.
Cramped room with “quirky” bathroom, although, some may find it charming. Bed was uncomfortable as it seemed we were sleeping on a decline, we turned around and slept in the opposite direction. I’m sure they would have assisted but it wasn’t a huge issue to just deal with it so we did. Wallpaper was peeling in some parts and just overall looked like it needed some updating. Expectations were VERY high as it has always been a dream to stay here, although I’ve spent nights in hotels of all ranges, this was one we expected to be a bit more up to its price per night standard.
Our TV didn't work...
We have always wanted to stay here for a romantic getaway
We had to wait for our room
The location was outstanding.
The room wasn't very clean - dusty baseboards and window blinds. It was also pretty loud, with door-slamming making sleep elusive.
Historic resort but pricey
The main building is charming, decadent and very unique. You'd be hard pressed to find another beachside resort like the Del
The towers are the opposite: not charming, cheaply built and the polar opposite of the Victorian main. Also, everything was twice the price includes the brunch.
Paid For an Ocean View...got a Tree and a Bathroom
Beautiful location and great food!
We paid for an ocean view and they stuck us on the second floor where our view was the back wall of the pool bathroom and a giant tree. Could barely see the ocean at all.
Always a great staff, beautiful room, all of the history of the Del, and romantic atmosphere.
Everything was so clean and beautiful.
Cost was a bit much. Nickeled and dined you for everything you did
Great Family Vacation Destination
Amazing location, super kid friendly with all sorts of activities. Great pool and service too! Sunday buffet was one of the best I've had.
We stayed in the ocean towers which does not look like the other buildings and is a tad outdated with a CD player. Our refrigerator had to be fixed and at one point the hot water stopped working. I'll go back but stay in the main building next time.
Good and Bad
Great near the beach and restaurants
The toilet leaked and flushed all the time we were there, night time it was really annoying. Also, the automatic light feature in the bathroom kept going on throughout the night probably 20 times! Very thin walls and ceiling. Definitely not worth the money, but as a one time stay over.
The staff were very amenable and helpful. The historic value of the hotel was also very interesting.
Internet reception was very poor.
architecture, scenery, weather, gardens
cost, parking fees,
location, the staff, the opportunities,
too many people..crowded for breakfast
The concierge service was wonderful and helped us out a great deal with directions to local attractions.
The price was steep.
Your booking form told of a "service charge", but hotel refers to this as a "resort charge"---a collection of facilities, charged at $25 per night, whether or not guests used these facilities---first hotel in usa we've stayed where we been charged for not using a service--reception told us that they do not keep track of guest usage--so we were subsidising other guests effectively!!!
I liked the area in general. The hotel experience was relaxing, but overpriced.
location is perfect, facilities are well kept, very impressed by the flowers and the grounds, staff is friendly professional and helpful. All good with the one exception noted below
I did not like the automatic 22% service fee that was attached to room service charges. Personally I like to give my own tips to staff. I felt unconfortable not giving a tip even though I knew about the service charge. I was unsure if the 22% was passed on to staff and added additional funds to ensure the workers were covered.
