I have reviewed hundreds of mattresses, sheets, pillows, duvet inserts, comforters, sleep gadgets, and adjustable beds. My reviews are based on my personal experience and the feedback I get from customers.

I received a free Coronado mattress from Brentwood Home for review. The Coronado is part of Brentwood Home’s new 2016 line of mattresses. It has a medium-firm feel to it and, like the Sequoia mattress, it is built very well.

Ordering and Unboxing

You can order the Coronado mattress direct via the Brentwood Home website. It arrives about a week after you place the order and comes in a box. Like the other mattresses offered through Brentwood Home, this one also comes with a 120 night guarantee. Below is a video of me unboxing the mattress.


Coronado Top

The top layer is made of Belgian stretch knit fabric that looks and feels great.

Underneath that is a New Zealand wool layer used for temperature regulation

Under that is a 3-inch gel memory foam layer for pressure relief. The gel foam is a newer generation foam that does a better job with cooling.

Next is a 2-inch ventilated airflow layer

Finally, a 6-inch therapeutic support base making for a very substantial mattress.

Note that this mattress also has stitched handles which makes it easier to rotate.


I found this mattress to be a little on the firmer end of the spectrum. Notice that the bowling ball doesn’t sink too heavily into the mattress:

That said, I think it would be an ideal mattress for stomach and back sleepers as it won’t give you that hammock effect that softer mattresses can have.

This bed also has a bit less bounce than the Sequoia because it doesn’t have any latex. Here’s a video to illustrate:

Here’s a slow motion video of the motion transfer:

I think that the wool layer above the memory foam allows the mattress to spring back to shape more quickly. A trade off is that you won’t sink in as much either.

Below is a video shot with my infrared camera to illustrate heat retention:

The top wool layer does a fairly good job with regulating temperature.


I would recommend the Coronado to people who want some of the benefits of memory foam without sinking into the mattress all that much. The transition from the comfort to base layer is a bit more pronounced than some of the other mattresses I have tested. This mattress also takes a little while to break in so you definitely need to give it a little time to adjust.

Overall, this mattress is an excellent choice for people looking for a firmer mattress that is easy to move around in and is built to last.
