HOTEL DEL CORONADO: A TEEN DREAM TRAVEL DESTINATION
Coronado, CA — The Hotel del Coronado’s endless white sand beaches, pools, fun dining options and nearby boathouse make it a spectacular playground for teenagers. In June 2009, The Del introduced Vibz, a new year-round hang-out for those ages 13-17. Vibz, a contemporary lounge, is the perfect escape for those looking for a break from the family. This exciting hotspot will offer billiards, foosball, darts, karaoke, computers, movie-time media, Dance Dance Revolution and, most importantly, the opportunity for teens to meet other people their own age.
The Del also offers year-round biking tours and surfing lessons, plus cabana, surfboard, boogie board and volleyball rentals. Shopaholics can indulge at the Shops at The Del, a variety of boutiques offering the latest styles and brands of sunglasses, shoes, apparel and bath and body products. Or, teens can just hang out and enjoy grilled hamburgers and hot dogs on the Sun Deck, coffee drinks at Babcock & Story Bakery or delicious ice cream from MooTime Creamery.
For those who want to relax and unwind, the Spa at The Del offers spa treatments designed specifically for teens. The Clarifying Facial cleans, detoxifies, exfoliates and hydrates and is perfect for acne-prone skin. With the Teen Treats offering, teens can combine any two 25-minute treatments such as Swedish Massage, Express Facial, Back Facial and Salt Scrub.
During the summer, The Del also offers extended teen programming including pool parties, relay races, ping-pong tournaments and comprehensive 4-hour surf camp.
