The suites feature a newly-renovated master king bedroom and sitting parlor – along with an ocean-inspired kid's bedroom where an under-the-sea theme is carried through with ocean-blue carpet, linens and playful artwork. The fun furniture includes bunk beds (single on top, double on bottom with a trundle), bean bag chairs, a toy chest filled with items from Hotel Del's Blue Octopus toy store, and a large-screen television with a Wii system.
For kids staying in Blue Octopus Suites, the fun begins at check in when they receive their V.I.K. (Very Important Kid) pass. The pass entitles kids to great offers at their favorite spots including MooTime Creamery, Spreckels Sweets & Treats, The Blue Octopus and Kidtopia. After they visit these locations and get a sticker from each one (no purchase required), they receive a special toy prize at Kidtopia.
Kids will enjoy visiting The Blue Octopus, a new toy store, where they will be inspired to learn about the planet through creative, imaginative playthings. The Blue Octopus features a variety of items that focus on the ocean: sea animals (sharks, whales, dolphins, octopus, seahorses, etc.), ocean activities (surfing, tide pools, shell collecting, kites, etc.), mermaids and pirates, and beach toys (boogie boards, sand toys, pool toys, etc.).
Then there's Kidtopia, an exciting facility for children ages 4 to 12, featuring bright colors, underwater murals and separate beach-themed rooms for crafts and playtime. There's also a crazy funhouse mirror and high-tech entertainment stations with computers, movie-time media and a Dance Dance Revolution game. Kidtopia offers three-hour camps and shorter programs with entertaining and educational crafts and activities. Camps, which include lunch or dinner, feature scavenger hunts, sandcastle contests, beach Olympics, luaus, bonfires and much more.
