Our experience at the Coronado Island Resort & Spa was much like enjoying a savory fruit pealing back the layers revealing one pleasurable experience after another.

Beautiful Settings
Away from the crowds, the beautiful Southern California bayside setting of the Marriott’s Coronado Island Resort makes a wonderful relaxing quick get-away or longer vacation in San Diego. We loved the tranquil coastal design that is everywhere around the resort – we felt we were on vacation as soon as we arrived.

As you check into your room, you can’t miss the abundant amount of space and outdoor balcony to relax and move around (see photo). The upgraded bathrooms with the oversized tub, comfy robes, and premium bath products offer a mini spa experience without leaving your room (see photo). The Wi-Fi Internet worked well and the innovative Internet TV allows you to keep up on the latest from your personal Netflix and Hulu accounts. The new plush beds are so comfortable we had a hard time getting out but with so many resort attractions to enjoy, we didn’t want to miss out.

We started our relaxing stay with a dip in the outdoor pool and whirlpool spa and lounged overlooking San Diego’s beautiful bay (see photo). Of course, a cool drink from the outdoor bar complimented the experience.

Having dinner at the Current Restaurant overlooking the bay is a highly recommended delight (see photo). The executive chef has designed healthy dining options throughout the resort including a custom-made Wellness Bento Box on the spa menu.

The newly renovated 6,000 square-foot two-story wellness fitness center has tennis courts (see photo), a lap swimming pool, basketball court, pickle ball courts, and state-of-the-art fitness equipment. Because it is also a membership club, professional group and private fitness classes are available to guests.

Wonderful Massage - Luxury Spa
If you don’t feel like having a workout, do not miss the 5,500 square foot luxury spa where we received one of the best massages we have even had (see photo). Before or after this experience, you can spend additional time relaxing in the tranquil relaxation room as well as the outdoor spa garden to enjoy the wonderful Southern California weather. Finish up in the eucalyptus steam room – very nice.

to Coronado Beach
We liked taking the resort bikes for a ride to the Coronado Beach and Hotel Del (see photo). Coronado’s bike paths made our afternoon safe and a treat – Coronado Island is beautiful and the homes are very nice to see. Other activities are offered such as beach walks, kayaking, and meditation.

San Diego’s Old Town Trolley, a hop on / hop off small bus-like vehicle, goes to many of San Diego's attractions where you can get on and off and visit a number of fun and interesting places (i.e. downtown Gaslamp Quarter, Embarcadero (Star of India & USS Midway Museum), Hotel Del Coronado, Seaport Village, Balboa Park, Old Town, Little Italy). It is fun just to ride it because the drivers give a fun history of San Diego.
