Travel & Leisure Family Magazine Recognizes Hotel Del Coronado As Top Family Resort

The legendary Hotel del Coronado received top honors in Travel & Leisure Family Magazine’s annual reader’s survey which appeared in the Fall/Winter 2001 issue. The Del was recognized as one of the top 20 family resorts in the United States.
At the Hotel del Coronado, having fun - and lots of it - is a year-round activity. The 26-acre resort, Southern California’s only oceanfront hotel, is a family paradise. There are lush gardens, a nearby marina, two pools and a full-time Activities Department to cater to every child’s whim.

Tent City Kids Camp (ages 4-12) offers full afternoon and evening programs that include bonfires, beach games, scavenger hunts, arts & crafts, paddle boating, and meals. In addition to Tent City programs, The Del offers a variety of recreational and educational activities including surfing lessons, sailing clinics, kayaking and “Radical Reptiles and Friends.”

Throughout December, The Del springs into action with an array of holiday programs including arts and crafts, storytelling and recreation activities. There are family sunset marshmallow roasts, Coronado sleigh rides, Elf Tuck-Ins and “An American Christmas” dinner theatre. In fact, author Ray Bradbury says The Del is his favorite place to bring his family during the holiday season.
The Del recently completed a $55 million restoration, which included an oceanfront lawn, new seaside restaurants, bar, retail venue and re-designed Victorian rooms, making now the best time ever to visit this American treasure.
