Reviewed yesterday NEW

Took a quick two day run to San Diego. Bahia bay front room was great, even though it rained much of our stay. Jacob at the front desk was wonderful - helpful, thoughtful, engaging. All the staff we worked with were very personable and made our stay very nice.

On the bay and steps from the beach. Great location with plenty of restaurants, shops and entertainment walking distance away. We use to make this our family vacation destination. We have been going here for years and the resort never disappoints us. Boat rental on site. Bahia Belle rides every night. On site restaurant and On site resident Sea Lions.

We had a lovely stay at the resort and were made to feel very welcome by the staff. Gracie and Billy are so adorable! It was a shame about the weather as we couldn't make much use of the beautiful beach that was right outside out room.

Tremendous location right at the head of Mission Bay. Easy to drive to Ocean Beach, Old Town and other locales. Smaller rooms but well appointed and clean and comfortable. Highly recommend the beachside rooms. Front desk crew is awesome!!

Our stay here was ok. Pros: Waking distance to the ocean, a short drive to many restaurants and shopping.
