Beach Village at The Del is the more luxurious section of the iconic Hotel del Coronado, offering big upscale cottages right on the sand. Beach Village guests get exclusive extras that Hotel del Coronado guests do not: private pools, use of the Windsor Club Cottage, a free breakfast buffet, and better in-room amenities, such as iPod docks, fireplaces, kitchenettes, and terraces. The beachfront location is impossible to beat, and Beach Village guests get free beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas. But prices are steep and there are some flaws: some ground-floor units have privacy issues due to passing pedestrian traffic, there are extra fees for Wi-Fi and parking, and some complain service isn't as seamless as it should be for this level of hotel.
Big cottages and villas with fireplaces and terraces; many have ocean views, full kitchens, and extras such as fire pits or hot tubs
Beach Village at The Del offers two main categories of accommodation: cottages, which are closer to the beach and have oceanfront views, and villas, which are located behind the cottages and have garden or ocean views. Rooms start at 535 square feet.
The cottages and villas have homey upscale decor -- white wood accents, crown molding, comfy upholstered sofas, and fireplaces. All have terraces or balconies and modern technology features. Spacious bathrooms have walk-in showers, soaking tubs, marble countertops, and stone tile.
Exclusive access to Windsor Cottage, and numerous restaurants to choose from at Hotel del Coronado
Guests at Beach Village have exclusive access to Windsor Club Cottage, where the free breakfast buffet is served (expect items such as hot cinnamon rolls, eggs, cereals, yogurt, and toast).
