Cove Closure FAQs

  1. Why is Pechanga doing this?
    A: Everything we do at Pechanga is done ultimately with our guests in mind. The $300 million expansion completed in 2018 allows as many as tens of thousands of guests to enjoy the new Cove pool area each month. This means the Cove has an extremely high demand for a larger family pool area to satisfy the needs of our guests. As a Four Diamond property, Pechanga continually reinvests into the products and experiences we can give our guests to ensure you receive the best experience you possibly can.
  2. What is being built and what will be new?
    A: Pechanga is expanding the family pool area at The Cove. The current Splash Pad will be removed and in place will be a larger, more expansive pool, doubling in size. The additions will ensure family guests are comfortable at the Cove.
  3. When will construction start? When will the project be finished?
    A: Construction will begin on Monday, November 4, 2019. The entire project is expected be complete in February 2020.
  4. What will the impact of construction be?
    A: With any construction project we undertake at Pechanga, the goal is to minimize and mitigate the effects for our guests. During the construction period, The Cove will be closed to ensure guest safety and satisfaction. The Cove will be the only closure on property due to the Cove construction.
  5. I was looking forward to utilizing the Cove during my stay. What recourse do I have?
    A: During the duration of the construction, Pechanga hotel guests are invited to enjoy the pool located on the third floor of the Casino Tower. Pool admission is free to hotel guests. We will not be selling cabanas, daybeds and day passes during this time.
  6. How do I access the third floor Casino Tower pool and what are the hours?
    A: To access the third floor Casino Tower pool, please use the guest elevators located in the Casino Tower, closest to the hotel front desk. The pool hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Hotel guests must show a valid room key to access the Casino Tower elevators, and to access entry to the third floor pool.
  7. Will the Coveside Grill be open?
    A: The Coveside Grill will remain closed along with all other areas of The Cove during the approximately three month construction period. The third floor pool area in the Casino Tower will offer a special menu for pool guests, including food, cocktails, beer, and wine delivered by Pechanga Room Service. The Lobby Bar & Grill is also a popular dining option, especially for guests staying in the Resort Tower. The Lobby Bar & Grill serves breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week.
  8. Will nearby areas of Pechanga be affected by construction activity?
    A: The construction is entirely restricted to the Cove area, therefore, hotel, spa and golf guests will not be affected in any way.
