We visited the Strand while staying at Loews on Coronado and had a great time. The beach was clean, not too crowded (even on Memorial Day weekend) and provided a backdrop for some gorgeous family photos. We will definitely return to Coronado.

Just walking a quarter mile from the parking lot and all the people are left behind, just a few surfers, anglers and beachcombers out there. It costs to use it, but then parking is difficult near the free beaches and one often ends up paying...More

Not crowded is not reason enough. The long, narrow strand is a magnet for litter washed up by the waves. Out of town guests described it as "certainly no big deal" which was the overall impression of Coronado. Head north to La Jolla, Torrey Pines,...More

Should I request a certain room before arriving??

Response from Patsy R | Reviewed this property |
It depends. If you bring pets then buildings 4/5. We were in building 1 and it was just right for us. It's close to the main lobby and pool(s). But so are the other buildings.

I don't believe they have full hook-up, just electric and water but they do have a dump.
