The Island of Coronado is linked to downtown San Diego by the beautifully curving 2.2 mile San Diego-Coronade Bridge. Business man Elisha Babcock Jnr bought this Island in 1885 and set out to develop a world class resort. Well, he succeeded. Coronado now boasts San Diego's most exclusive homes, boutiques, hotels and restaurants.
The Island's enourmous sandy beach is delightful, hardly ever crowded and is overlooked by the landmark Hotel Del Coronado. The Del, as it's fondly known, is one of the largest wooden structures in the USA and is a truly grand Victorian hotel. You may even recognise it as it was the setting for Marilyn Monroe's film Some Like It Hot.
Where you stay is the heart of your holiday. Location reigns supreme but do you prefer resort facilities or unique and boutique? Historic and old world or modern and shiny?
We aim to present choices across the spectrum but there are many hundreds of places to stay
and not room to feature them all. Do speak to your Bon Voyage travel consultant and click the
video for our take on this important topic.
We would rate the Bellagio as one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in.
Fabulous, glitzy, exciting. We loved having breakfast at the poolside
café... one of our best experiences ever. If it hadn't been for you we
wouldn't have had the suite or cabana and we loved them. We both agreed
that the hotel was the best for us and you had suggested that so well done!
