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.

This was our 3rd stay at Paradise Point and I’m sure it won’t be our last. The resort makes you feel like you are in Hawaii. We love the location of the resort on the bay. This was our 2nd stay with our now 3 year old and having the beach outside our room was amazing and convenient with a toddler. The pool was heated which was nice especially since it was cooler weather while we were visiting. We had a suite on the bay and it was nice to have a separate room from our toddler once we put him down for bed. We have also stayed here without our son before we had him and this resort is great for couples and families. Read less

Around 20 mins from the airport and$30 for an Uber, we found the staff amazingly friendly. Accommodation is in the form of bungalows, bay side and in small cul de sacs. Rooms were spotless and bathrooms had toiletries/hairdryer. We arrived late and there was the option of a pizza delivery on site which was delicious. There are gated pool areas that are locked at night and they also have fire pits that are lit and you can sit around of an evening. You can also buy fire kits to take on the beach from the on site store that has a small amount of food, but plenty of other supplies. There is a bay side restaurant and bar with a friendly vibe. We visited Rosecrans cemetery, USS Midway and Coronado from this location, each 20-30mins drive away. Read less
