Luxurious Residential-Style Guestrooms and Suites
Welcome to your beach home away from home.
Beach Village at The Del accommodations look like you’ve just stepped into a magazine. Amenities in the guestrooms and one to three bedroom suites include fully-appointed bedrooms, a patio or balcony (most with ocean views), turndown service, stone tile flooring, state-of-the-art entertainment, 400-thread-count linens, and more. Suites with designer kitchens even have Sub Zero refrigerators and stainless Wolf ranges. And, some suites have outdoor fire pits and soaking tubs. How romantic.

Private Entrances and Gated Access
Guests of Beach Village at the Del have a private entrance and receive a VIP greeting upon check-in that includes a property tour to help guests become acquainted with the property.
Gated access means that only guests of Beach Village at The Del may access the property which provides no only extra security but a quieter beachfront experience. (The main resort can be busy during peak season.)
Personal Concierge Services
The highly-personalized service begins before check-in, if you like. A Host Concierge will organize all aspects of your stay and even stock your refrigerator full of favorite items.

Private Chef Dinners
Book a suite with a kitchen and have a Hotel Del Coronado chef prepare a multi-course meal completely tailored to your tastes. Enjoy it in the comfort of your Beach Village suite paired with wines or craft cocktails.
Other Beach Village dining options include in-room dining, the poolside Breezes Grill and the Hotel Del Coronado restaurants.
Windsor Beach Club
The Windsor Beach Club is a private area that is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day posh seating (styled by Room and Board) with full food and beverage service on the gorgeous sands of Del Beach.
Secluded Pools and Gorgeous Cabanas
While plunge pools and hot tubs are scattered throughout the property, the main Beach Village pool has cabanas with a sofa, 47-inch TV, amenity basket, complimentary drinks and fresh fruit.
Access to Hotel Del Coronado Amenities
Hotel Del Coronado offers guests a wide range of amenities including a full service spa (that I love), shops, restaurants, bike and beach rentals, fitness classes like sunrise yoga on the beach and more that Beach Village guests will certainly want to take advantage of.
VIP Perks at Fashion Valley Mall
Guests of Beach Village at The Del receive complimentary valet parking at Fashion Valley Mall, two hours of personal shopping services and a Fashion Valley tote.
(I also have a special Destination Passport booklet of hundreds of dollars of savings at Fashion Valley Mall for clients who book San Diego hotels through me.)
Book Beach Village at The Del with Virtuoso Amenities
I book the Hotel Del Coronado for readers quite a bit so I can tell you that rates at Beach Village tend to start around $999/night plus tax and a $30 resort fee (and are subject to change based on availability and season). Both the Hotel Del Coronado and Beach Village at The Del recently became Curio Collection by Hilton properties. This means that you can earn Hilton HHonors points for your stay. While you can book through Hilton, you may come out ahead booking in with Virtuoso amenities that currently include:
- Upgrade on arrival, subject to availability (room upgrades are not possible in Beach Village)
- Daily Buffet breakfast, for up to two in room guests
- $100 USD Equivalent Spa Services credit, valid only for suites in Main Resort and Beach Village (not combinable, no cash value if not redeemed in full)
- Early check-in/late check-out, subject to availability
- Complimentary Wi-Fi
Beach Village at The Del guests already have complimentary breakfast at the Windsor Cottage, but for a change of pace, the breakfast credit can be used on the main resort at Sheerwater’s buffet. Send me your dates and I’d be happy to book you in with Virtuoso amenities.
