Bahia Resort Hotel

San Diego, USA

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.

Renee was super helpful and helped get us booked quick and easy! She explained all the room types with great detail and helped me decide what was best for my family. Also gave a great rundown on the resort - we are really looking forward to staying here!

To say I lucked out when calling to make a reservation is an understatement… Renee in the reservations department at the Bahia went above and beyond to make our 20yr anniversary special! Thank you so much for being so informative and securing us a special room.

I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights in early May. I really enjoyed my stay, but the restaurant service stood out to me. The patio was amazing and had an amazing view. Levi was our host and she was perfect! She was so sweet and provided a great first impression for Bahia! The food was awesome and so was our server Kelly. We Will come back!

While on vacation in Pacific Beach my husband had an emergency culminating in the implantation of a pacemaker. We had been staying in an Arbnb prior to his hospital stay, and that reservation time was up the day he was released from the hospital. I booked the Bahia so he had recovery time before flying back to where we live in Montana. I cannot thank everyone on the staff enough for the wonderful customer service we received. Chris, the concierge, was always smiling, calm, and helpful. The bartender, (I'm sorry to not get her name) was a friendly ear, and Inez at the front desk did all she could to find us a room for a fifth unexpected night. The stay was everything I had hoped for when I made the reservation on the day of his surgery. We have been home for a month and he is recovering well. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You all made a stressful time much easier. Read less
