The hotel

You’ll be spoilt for choice for things to do at San Diego Mission Bay Resort. Spread over 18 waterfront acres, you can enjoy spa treatments, play tennis or go sailing, take dips in the pool and strolls along the sandy beachfront. Choose to eat on the waterfront looking out across Mission Bay, enjoy drinks around an outdoor fire pit or hide away with a fresh pastry and a Zoka coffee in the café. Kids will love it at this retreat too — there’s a seasonal Kids Kamp, beach games and bike rentals, as well as dive-in films by the pool and s'mores by the bayside fire pits.

We stayed at the Mission Bay Resort over Memorial Day Weekend. In past our family has stayed at neighboring resorts however it was clear to us on arrival (and during our stay) that this one is the best. From arrival to departure the service was outstanding. The team greeted us (and our dog) by name. The food was also very on point - we stayed for 2 nights and did not feel the need to leave the resort. We really appreciated the activities the resort scheduled for Memorial Weekend. The weather was spotty but the resort hosted activities like a sand building contest, tie dye craft, and s’mores which kept both the kids and the adults happy. As a bonus we had a perfect view of the Sea World fireworks each evening! Read less

My family & I visited the MERCADO gift shop, we ALL got a little something for the go. Dorothy G. was so helpful & patient she helped me find just the right fit for the hooded sweater & hat I bought. She definitely knew how to make a connection with her patrons, she ended up sharing the passion of photography with my son.

Visited the Covewood Resturant today. Amazing ambiance, great food, and impeccable service from ROY! He was so attentive and helpful and the meal was amazing -- with a spectacular view of the Bay. It was a bit chilly and the staff made sure the firepit was on and that our experience was pleasant.

We just toured the resort and was assisted by the concierge, Katie Blackburn. We found the premises very attractive and inviting -- well kept up and with such a variety of things to do and places to enjoy. The store had many things to offer and was inviting.
