Bahia Resort Hotel

San Diego, California

Virgin rating

The hotel

There's a real resort feel to this Mission Bay hotel. On a 14-acre peninsula, the views are quite something, and you’re just steps from the the calm bay waters. Head to the white sandy beach and grab yourself a beach cabana or take a stroll through the lush tropical gardens. The pool is a great spot too and the huge hot tub is just the ticket on a cooler evening. Don't miss an evening cruise around the bay on the Bahia Belle paddle steamer — there’s drinks, live entertainment and views galore.

This will be our second visit to this beautiful hotel. The grounds and front desk employees are awesome and clean. I have spoken now three times with Diante in reservations and I can't tell you how helpful he is to this hotel. You are lucky to have such a great employee! Thanks Diante, can't wait to see you in December again!

I phoned Bahia Resort Hotel to reserve a room and was helped by Diante. He was personable, well mannered and helpful, giving me all kinds of information that would make the stay for my wife and I something wonderful to remember. He made sure that since I was staying over three days I received the hotel's extended rate, as well as another rate ehancement since it was a birthday week for us. Appreciated how he let me know why a Bay View room would be the perfect place for two 75-year-olds to enjoy San Diego. We're really look forward to our September,2022 trip to San Diego. Given the way we've been treated, we expect the trip to be fantastic! Read less

Julian D was amazing during my reservation process. He gave me all kinds of useful information about the property, rates, etc. He was the perfect customer service agent-- talkative, but not TOO talkative. I'm even more excited for our vacation in a month now. Thanks Julian! Thanks Bahia!

Beautifully manicured grounds. We wanted to stay in the garden view area, but the hotel "upgraded" us and moved us to the tower building at the front of the property.

Beautifully manicured grounds. We wanted to stay in the garden view area, but the hotel "upgraded" us and moved us to the tower building at the front of the property. We stayed in the tower for 1 night and found it to be very basic. We requested to please move to our originally requested garden view room. We were so happy we did. Yes, the garden view rooms are smaller and older, but the kids loved stepping out the sliding door into the magical tropical garden. There are ducks and pretty birds, frogs and nice shade. Wander the pretty paths and sit in a deck recliner taking in the San Diego tropical sights and sounds. Nice large pool, huge hot tub, live entertainment, helpful staff, playground. You can also walk up the street to the ocean boardwalk. Read less
