Nice hotel with own beach and swimming area
Posted Jan 6, 2017 on Hotels
We stayed here for 3 nights. Room 31 is a big room with a big bathroom. It has a queen size bed with a very firm mattress. There is a TV with many US cable TV channels, a fridge, coffee maker, microwave and a safe. The room has a desk, 2 tables, 1 chair, 3 couches, a drawer and a draped off area to hang your clothes and a ceiling fan. The room only has 2 double power outlets. The bathroom is huge and has a shower. Complimentary soap bars, shampoo and conditioner are provided. Pay special attention to their towel folding art! The A/C is quiet and efficient, but it misses an air redirector bar.
There is a bar on the 1st floor and an adjacent pool. The pool is fairly large but not deep and this best suited for kids. The beach is well maintained and has beach chairs. The hotel has its own pier with a small marked swimming area at the end. There is some sea grass in the swimming area, but most appears to be cleared. The water was muddy and you could barely see the ground.
The hotel offers free rum punch from 1-6pm in the lobby. A continental breakfast, which was included in our room rate, was served in the bar area until 10am.
The hotel has free wifi; the connection is not too stable and got disconnected once in a while, but typically only for a couple of seconds to a minute.
Long story short: Corona del Mar is a nice ocean-front hotel. As it is South of town, it is fairly quiet, but you will hear some noise from Coconut Drive and the near-by airport. I would stay here again.
