Paradise Point Resort & Spa

San Diego, California

Virgin rating

The hotel

Overlooking spectacular Mission Bay in San Diego, you can really take advantage of the bayside setting here — chill out by the water or by one of the pools, go out in a sailboat or speedboat, or take surf lessons. Paradise Point is set on its own 44-acre island, with lush gardens and a mile-long white sand beach. One of the best things about it is that whilst its secluded spot makes you feel like you are a million miles away from it all, you're actually just minutes from downtown San Diego.

Will never stay at paradise point. Rooms were super old and mattresses in both rooms were horrible to sleep on. Will not recommend this hotel to anyone… for the price you can stay at a 5 star hotel . T

The rooms are very outdated. The beds and bedding were horrible. Mismatched furniture and a shower with no water pressure. The property itself is nice and the area of our room was quiet but we would not go back. Sad and outdated property.

Perfect paradise of a resort. Had an amazing time for my first year anniversary. I appreciated all the accomodations they provded to my wife and I, as well as the prompt service, and safe environment. Will definitely be returning and might make it an annual anniversary tradition.

make sure to reconfirm over and over on the phone about a room location. They still might not get it right. Check in after 4pm could mean you cant not check in until 6;30pm. Even if you request early check in.
