Loews Coronado Bay Resort- a Review

Loews Coronado Bay Resort | Global Munchkins

The warm crisp air at your back and the bright California sunshine on your face greet you as you step out in front of the Loews Coronado Bay Resort. Surrounded by boats and yachts in the marina with a view of the Coronado Bridge in the distance you feel as if you are worlds away from the fast paced LA/ San Diego lifestyle.

Then the real magic happens as you enter this gorgeously designed lobby with a stunning dual staircase. The light shines through the large open design and you take a deep breath. You are now on vacation.

Loews Coronado Bay Resort- a Review

Service:

Warm, friendly and eager to please is how I would describe each of my interactions with the Loews staff on our recent stay in Coronado.

From the second you arrive it is as if you have stayed at this resort for years by the way you are warmly welcomed by the each of the Loews staff members.

Rooms:

The rooms are crisp and clean with a island-chic vibe. The plush bedding is inviting and plethora of fluffy marshmallow pillows makes it an offer that is hard to refuse.

As if you weren’t relaxed enough already the light blue hue in the room instantly soothes you and the gorgeous views of the Coronado Bay out the massive sliding door transport you to a far off land. The ocean has this amazing ability to completely melt every last worry away. You deserve this!

You continue your relaxing journey as you enter the large bathroom complete with a super deep soaking tub, glass-enclosed shower and plenty of feathery soft towels.

Dining:

There are three restaurants on property including Mistral with award winning Chef Cho who incorporates a globally infused menu to delight and awaken your taste buds. This is especially convenient for business travelers as the Loews location is a bit off the main drag in Coronado.

The Market Café offers indoor and outdoor seating with impressive views of the marina. My daughter and I had the pleasure of dining outdoors for breakfast. The chef prepared a trio of fresh pressed juices for us to try. We sampled the Sunrise (orange), Energy (green) and Rejuvenate (pink). They were all delicious and they reminded me of the healthy juices we received each morning when we were in Bali. Such a great boost in the morning! Honestly the energy juice woke me up so much that I didn’t even need my regular cup of morning coffee.

Once again the wait staff was over the top with outstanding service. Ella immediately dug in to her kids scrambled eggs and bacon while also sampling the perfectly ripe fresh fruit that came with my California scramble. Healthy dining is abundant here.

The Market also boasts a juice and smoothie bar called Juice Therapy as well as Market To Go with grab and go salads, sandwiches and snacks. You can also grab a cup of joe at the friendly coffee bar featuring Starbucks coffee.

Looking for a quick bite or poolside drink? La Cantina has your back serving up legendary mojitos (my fav), cheladas and margaritas. They also have juicy burgers, salads and other tasty options.

Loews In Room Dining is also a fantastic choice. Ella and I discovered their heavenly fruit filled chocolate tacos. The vanilla bean cream filling is divine!!! If you are looking for a treat this one would be hard to beat.

Kid Friendly Rating:

Loews definitely stands by their “Loews Loves Kids” mentality as children arenot only welcomed but celebrated by the staff. Whether it was the lobby staff or the waitress at The Market Café my daughter’s comfort was just as important as mine. And, I could tell she appreciated being acknowledged by all the adults.

Loews also offers kid friendly menus and special activities especially during peak seasons. Ella is eager to come back this summer to explore their kids marine life program.

Pet Friendly Rating:

We have 3 furry members of our family who usually get left behind on our vacations. However, Loews is a pet friendly hotel so this time my daughter was able to bring her Shitzu-Poodle mix named Paris with us.

I was delighted to see the staff excited to see my daughter walk up with her prized pup. They oogled over Paris and Ella soaked up all the attention. Upon check in we received a pet amenity bag, which included water, & food bowls, treats, a door sign to let the staff know when the dog was in the room and clean up bags in a cute bone shaped holder for Paris. We had read online pet beds were available but I would recommend reserving one in advance if possible as there were none left when we arrived.

Paris was welcomed to roam around the hotel grounds with us and she was even able to sit with us at breakfast on the patio at The Market Café. Unlike so many other pet friendly resorts we never felt that the staff was annoyed or bothered by Paris’ presence. Instead they seemed excited to see her which was a breathe of fresh air.

  • It looks gorgeous there! The only Loews I’ve stayed at are the hotels at Universal Orlando but they are all so nice!

  • Suzette says:

    I can’t believe it! I live next door to this hotel, in the Coronado Cays. We’re members and use the hotel as our club. The spa is small but very good. Our kids grew up in those pools, and we spent many staycations here. My son’s first job was as a pool attendant, lol!

    The summer activities here are really fun. They have a DJ by the pool, games and other planned activities. The fire pits on the terrace off the lobby are new and super cozy during our chilly nights.

    Only draw back is that beach is a nice walk from the hotel, or you can catch the little shuttle to Silver Strand Beach.

    The Gondola Company owner is our friend, so I highly recommend taking a ride around the Cays canals. The gondolier even sings for you! And you might even catch me outside waving to you!

    What a thorough review, and your pictures are stunning. We’re usually campers when we travel, but we have to go to San Diego on business later this year. Perhaps we’ll check this out. Do you have other San Diego posts I can check out?

  • Wow. Where to start with how much I want to go visit this place?! Beautiful photos, and I love how truly kid-friendly and dog-friendly it is. Do you mind me asking where you got your daughter’s shirt? My own daughter is currently obsessed with all things Paris and she would love that shirt if I could find it for her 🙂
