Loews loves kids A review of Loews Coronado Bay Resort
If you have kids, or if you like staying in a relaxed atmosphere resort with good ammenities, this is the place to stay in San Diego.
The hotel motto is "Loews loves kids". They show it right off the bat with a goodie bag for each kid and a treasure map of the hotel grounds with an ice cream cone as the prize for completing it. Each day brings different activities. During our first evening, there was a welcome reception for adults and a different one for children. Later that night, everyone was invited to the beach on the bay for singing by the campfires and roasting marshmallows, making smores, and drinking coffee and hot chocolate.
There is a huge swimming pool for families, one only for adults, and one only for kids. The excercise room is great with cardio machines, a few weight machines, and sufficient free weights and benches. The beach is a 5 minute jog away; transportation is provided to the beach regularly. Tennis is free, there is a full court basketball court, you can rent watercraft, and at the pool, they offer complimentary massages.
The hotel rooms are great, the bathrooms very spacious with large tubs and a separate shower. Each room has a balcony.
The hotel is located on the silver strand beach. About 5 minutes from the Coronado center and 15 minutes from downtown San Diego. This is the resort you want to go to if you want to relax, spend time on the beach, and do a little exploring in Coronado or San Diego.
It is really nice to go to a place that includes so much in the price and doesn't nickel and dime you to death. Everyone we ran into was extremely friendly, especially to the kids.
If you have kids, stay here. If you hate kids, stay in La Jolla.
