Hotel del Coronado, Coronado Island, California

This historic landmark sits just off the coast of San Diego. The new Beach Village at The Del opened in 2007, and the 78 private luxury cottage and villa rentals share a pool and club. It’s like moving onto your own private resort island.

Field trip: You can bike the entire island in a four-seater surrey from the hotel. Also check out the surf lessons on the island’s perfectly mellow beginner waves.

Night out: Take a ferry or drive 10 minutes into downtown San Diego and find The Fish Market right on the water. Go upstairs for fine dining, downstairs for casual.

Rates: from $675/night; 866/433-3030 or delbeachvillage.com
