SUMMER FAMILY FUN AT THE HOTEL DEL CORONADO
CORONADO, CA — Just in time for summer, the Hotel del Coronado is pleased to present the new Teen Access Pass, just for those ages 13 to 17. This card entitles teens to special offers and complimentary gifts at the Sun Deck Grill, Spreckels Sweets & Treats, the spa and salon and beach rental outlets.
In addition, teens can enjoy the year-round Vibz teen lounge, surfing lessons, teen yoga and beach boot camp, biking, kayak tours, volleyball and boogie board rentals and much more. And for those who want to relax and unwind, the Spa at The Del offers spa treatments designed specifically for those ages 13 to 17. The Spa Sundae package includes a 25-minute Ice Cream Float (flavored bath fizz in our Hydro-Capsule), 25-minute Spreckels Sugar Scrub and a 25-minute Frosting Massage – how sweet is that?
Younger guests (ages 4 to 12) can once again enjoy the royal treatment this summer with the V.I.K. (Very Important Kid) program. The program is designed to make them feel extra special starting at check-in, where they will receive their V.I.K. pass. The lanyard pass can be worn around the neck and entitles kids to great offers at their favorite spots including MooTime Creamery, Spreckels Sweets & Treats, The Toy Castle and Kidtopia. After they visit these locations and get a sticker from each one (no purchase required), they will receive a special toy prize at Kidtopia.
Kids will enjoy taking their V.I.K. pass to The Toy Castle to check out books, dolls, stuffed animals and toys galore. MooTime Creamery offers ice cream and yogurt that is smooshed and smashed into their favorite flavor combinations. And Spreckels Sweets & Treats, an old-fashioned candy store, is the perfect way to indulge those sweet tooth cravings.
Then there’s Kidtopia, an exciting facility for children ages 4 to 12, featuring bright colors, underwater murals and separate beach-themed rooms for crafts and playtime. There’s also a crazy funhouse mirror and high-tech entertainment stations with computers, movie-time media and a Dance Dance Revolution game. Kidtopia offers three-hour camps, mini camps and shorter programs with entertaining and educational crafts and activities. Camps, which include lunch or dinner, feature scavenger hunts, sandcastle contests, beach Olympics, luaus, bonfires and much more.
During the summer months, the resort offers extended programs for children including Bingo tournaments on the pool deck, Family S’mores Night on the beach, family fitness classes and Flick N’ Float movie night, where kids can watch a film from an inner tube.
Named the Best Family Beach in America by The Travel Channel, Coronado beach has something for everyone. Start the morning with a walk, jog or swim along the Pacific. Coronado’s generally small waves are perfect for learning to surf or boogie board. Board rentals and lessons are available. Bikes for all ages, surreys and deuce coupes are available for rent. The Coronado bike trail, which runs along Glorietta Bay and the beachfront walk, is safe, easy to navigate and beautiful year-round.
And parents, if you’re more interested in unwinding, the expansive sandy beach is perfect for sun bathing. The Del offers an award-winning spa and rejuvenating yoga classes on the sand. Or just, sip a margarita at one of The Del’s many oceanfront restaurants. There truly is something for kids of all ages.
With all this plus easy-access to SeaWorld, the World-Famous San Diego Zoo and Legoland, it’s easy to see why Travel + Leisure Family magazine named The Del one of the top 20 family resorts in the United States. For reservations, call 800.HOTEL.DEL or visit www.hoteldel.com.
