In the summer they have activities for the kids by the pool. The resturant is great, the food is tasty and the service is wonderful...One of the best in wildwood...

Last summer, a small group of my girlfriends & I stayed at El Coronado resort for a Bachelorette/Birthday/College Graduation celebration. We had the 2 bedroom suite and it was the perfect size for the 4 of us. It was clean and spacious, definitely comfortable and the pool was so nice. The location is perfect... right on the beach. Definitely one...

Made so many memories here. We are absolutely looking forward to returning for another vacation. There was so much to do and the restaurant in the hotel was good. The hotel was clean and the staff is friendly.

Raising a young family, each summer we upgraded to better accommodations while enjoying the quiet of Wildwood Crest, yet being so close to Cape May and other southern New Jersey seaside amenities and services. It didn't take us long to find El Coronado and we stopped looking to upgrade. Family oriented during the summer; empty-nesters flock there after Labor Day....

We stayed here columbus day weekend and got a great deal for a two nights stay with breakfast. The resort was clean and the room was comfortable. The pool was still open but absolutely freezing so we just used the hot tub. There was a small kitchenette in the room and was perfect for just heating up left overs. The...

The desk staff is not very attentive, accommodating or friendly. Check in was not a very smooth or enjoyable experience. I stayed in one of the family two bedroom suites. The room was nice but I felt it could be a little more updated and cleaner. The common balcony wasn't very nice because there was constant foot traffic to the...
