In addition to the playground, kids also benefit from new play-along programs. The “DelVenture” explore pack sets them up with a treasure map and clues, and “Kidtopia” allows ages four to 12 to participate in 3-hour camps that involve beach-themed rooms and underwater murals.
Smore nights and dive-in movies are also part of the hotel’s regular programming, and the family-friendly theme extends into the bedroom with the introduction of the new Blue Dolphin and Blue Octopus suites that carry amenities of bean bag chairs, bunk beds, a Wii or X-Box system, and a treasure chest filled with toys.
Looks like the Hotel Del Coronado has positioned itself in line with a long-known parental secret: Mai tais go down a lot easier when the kids are entertained. Rates start at $289 during the summer.
