Editor’s Review of Loews Coronado Bay Resort
Kids will know they're going someplace special crossing the expansive bridge from downtown San Diego onto the quiet, family-friendly island of Coronado. Loews' Resort is about 10 minutes past downtown Coronado shops and restaurants. It sits on the bay side of Coronado's Silver Strand Road, within walking distance of the Pacific at Silver Strand State Beach.
Loews Coronado guests can enjoy swimming in pools overlooking the marina; taking a gondola ride through the colorful channels; and watching boats come into shipyards at San Diego across the bay.
The bay isn't a good option for swimming -- it looks like mud flats when the tide goes out -- but it attracts shorebirds and sailboats. Families can take the Loews shuttle to the beach
or walk there using a tunnel painted with ocean scenes beneath Highway 75. Silver Strand State Beach is popular for shell-seeking, sandcastle building, body surfing and sunset strolls. Loews also offers a free shuttle to downtown Coronado and its top-rated beach.
Loews Coronado resort, built in 1992, has five connected buildings with 439 rooms (including 37 suites) that curve around the main pool area. Kids will likely prefer rooms overlooking the pool, but the far side offers views of Navy shipyards and Dole banana boats coming into San Diego harbor.
Lush landscaping wraps around the resort with an herb garden, a small orange grove, palms and flowers that add color to the pool area in particular. It makes it an attractive place to chill out.
Families who crave more action can circle the bay on wave runners, try water skiing, sign up for paddleboard or surf lessons, and bike to downtown for Southern California shopping, oceanfront dining and that kick-back Coronado atmosphere.
