Cottage chic on the beach
Surrounded by San Diego Bay and the Pacific Ocean, the city of Coronado is a quaint beach community known for its sparkling mica-rich sand, gentle surf and, most of all, its National Historic Landmark, Hotel del Coronado. The iconic resort is a famous destination cherished for its soaring red turrets, whitewashed Queen Anne architecture and vintage charms. It’s also well known for its spa, seaside-dining venues and 125 years of rich history. While many guests choose to stay within the original building and enjoy the resort’s yesteryear appeal, the addition of Beach Village provides those seeking a more modern ambiance with another option.
Situated in a secluded waterfront enclave adjacent to the hotel, Beach Village offers 78 private villas and cottages that blend contemporary luxuries with the Del’s original historic character for an upscale sojourn. The experience begins upon arrival at Beach Village’s exclusive entrance, where valet parking and in-room check-in service make the process nearly seamless. You are then free to explore the village, where you will discover peaceful ocean-view pools tucked into gardens along the meandering paths. As the centerpiece, the main pool offers a family-friendly atmosphere and amenities, such as complimentary chilled fruits and juices, poolside dining service and private cabanas.
Bordering the Windsor Lawn and serving as the hub for Beach Village’s concierge services, Windsor Club Cottage provides you with a comfortable place to plan out activities. Once the home of Coronado’s Wallis Spencer Simpson — whom King Edward VIII of England famously renounced his throne to marry — this historic abode was relocated to the Del and retains a residential appeal. Appointed with dining and chat areas both indoors and outside on the expansive seaside patio, it’s a charming place to relax and unwind. Meanwhile, outside the luxury enclave, the Hotel del’s bustling pools, plentiful dining and spectacular beaches await.
