The Del @ Coronado Island

Waiting at the hotel lobby for my friend to arrive… we are going for a quick Asian dinner.. then off to the beach to catch the sunset. There is no better place to watch this than at the Hotel Del Coronado (3 minutes from where I am at).. affectionately known as THE DEL.

Hmmmm… it might get chilly… a quick change of clothes since she still hasn’t arrived…

<span class=

Golly! My friend is expecting NO.2 .. and needless to say she still looks great?! so skinny! What is it with Asian women.. the more pregnant they are.. the hotter they look…

Hope I’ll be as lucky! 😀

So here we are… Bistro D’Asia… suppose to be ZAGAT approved.. so better be good..

The crispy duck was really good! Crispy on the outside, and soft and succulent on the inside…
<span class=
The cutest thing is they serve the buns in stainless steel!
<span class=
The wantan mee was so-so.. but at least we had loads of green chili for the 1st time in 2 days.. and you know a gal needs her chili!

The very mildly spicy chili 🙁 … (like 0.005 on a scale of 1 to 10.. hahaha… tragic)

Introducing… THE DEL!

Rising from water’s edge on the quaint island of Coronado in San Diego, the Hotel del Coronado is considered one of America’s most beautiful beach resorts.

A classic historic hotel, The Del was built in 1888 and designated a National Historic Landmark in 1977. Today, The Del is contemporary luxury in an enchanting Victorian atmosphere. Add the resort’s beachfront location, and it’s no wonder USA Today calls The Del “one of the top ten resorts in the world.” The Del offers a quintessential San Diego resort vacation experience. For those seeking a romantic retreat, the resort’s magical architecture and island setting are perfect!

But never mind the inside… just check out the outside of the Del.. where all the action is…

White, fine sand that stretches for miles… it’s like… BEYOND!

And even though the weather is turning, as it approaches sunset, some hardcore people are still pounding the surf and playing beach volleyball…

the sky takes on a pink hue…

And as we watch the marvelous sunset on one side…
