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.

My mother stayed at the Bahia Resort Hotel in the late part of June and the condition of the room was gross. When my mother complain, the staff tried to give her a different room but the room was smaller and the kind of room she reserved. She decided to stay in the original room and was given cleaning products to clean the room herself! My mother is 72 years old! She hasn't had a vacation in years! The reason they gave her the cleaning products is because the staff said because of COVID, the maid could not come in and clean the room. Why wasn't the room clean and ready in the first place?! Additionally, her room didn't work two times, her croissant was stale, and she was place in the last possible building in the back. Remember, she is 72 years old! When her room key didn't work, she had to travel a long distance to the front desk. The second time her key didn't work, I went up to the front desk to complain and the manager Brittany said she would comp the first night because of the unsatisfactory conditions. We are still waiting for the refund for the first day. I would not recommend this place at all!. Read less

My family has stayed at the Bahia for 14 years every July. This year there was a mix up with my reservation (I booked from another site I usually book direct with the hotel) The reservation director made things right immediately and although our usual room was not available she upgraded us to a bayfront room. As usual our stay was fantastic. We actually stayed an extra dat. This is by far the best place to stay on Mission Beach. You can relax on the private Bay or take a short walk to the ocean. Staff is wonderful. Property and rooms are clean and comfy. They have a great restaurant and are close to many other good places to eat.Belmont Park is across the street. We can't wait to go back next year. Read less

Great place. Manager Aaron was very pleasant, helpful and professional. Beautiful views and great for walking. Would highly recommend. Will definitely return. Next time will try to get an ocean view although the room we had was quite spacious.

We called to reserve our room for September (2021) and Diante helped us. He was extremely cordial and knowledgeable about the property. If everyone at the property is as nice as DIante, I am certain that we will have an excellent stay :-).
