Bahia Resort Hotel

San Diego, USA

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.

Spent an hour exploring options with a very helpful reservations agent named Oscar. He was professional, pleasant, helpful and answered many questions. Have never had such a great experience making a reservation.

I had visited this Hotel with my son last time I visited San Diego and will now be staying there with My family in July. I Booked our 5 day stay with a Wonderful young lady named Victoria who answered every question I had, got us a great rate on 2 rooms and dealing with her was truly my deciding factor to book at this hotel VS 1 other I was looking at. She was a pleasure and I spoke with her Manager today to tell him directly what a great representative she is and he was just as friendly as she was! With people like this representing the hotel tells me we are going to love our stay! I'll add a new updated review after we stay. Can't wait! Read less

Spouse and I decided we needed a beach break. Bahia Resort Hotel was fantastic. We are still in the midst of covid restrictions and Bahia has taken measures to insure sanitary, safe, rooms and grounds. The lobby was decked out for Christmas with a small "set" featuring " The Christmas Story" movie complete with leggy lamp. Very clever and different. We opted for a second level King room with a view of the Bay, Marina and two stern wheeler boats reminiscent of Mississippi River gambling boats. The room was spacious with a couch, table and chairs and huge TV. We enjoyed adult beverages on the private balcony while watching the paddleboarders and marina traffic. Ordered room service.. BLT sandwich that was so big spouse and I were glad we only ordered the one. So much positive I could say about this facility. Only complaint: I would have given the facility 5 stars but unfortunately they had feather pillows and I am allergic. I generally bring my own pillow but forgot. Another suggestion would be to remove the lounge type chairs from the balconies and substitute a 3 piece bistro type arrangement. Just my preference. I'm looking forward to going back to this resort.
