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.

Room 138 right on the beach,. ground floor. Loved it. Nice suite, comfortable. The overall appearance of the property was very clean and well maintained. Every single staff member I encountered over my 3 day staff was pleasant, smiling and willing to assist me with any of my requests. The front desk staff made me feel welcomed right away. Dulce, Josephine & Roberto helped with special request and very engaging. At the Bahia Cafe, Stacy helped us have an enjoyable dinner with old friends we had not seen in a long time. When dinner was over, he escorted one of us to check out the river boat. I see where the excellent service training comes from. I ran into the owner, Bill, and he treated me exactly the same way. I see why his staff is happy to work at the Bahia Resort. Read less

I came to the Bahia restore and hotel on a business trip with 35 other members of our association. The staff were very attentive. When they saw people looking for meeting locations and our rooms they personally us to our destination. We were up late enjoying conversation around the fire pits and the staff did not rush us off at closing time. The most surprising act of kindness cane the next morning. I ordered the bagel and cream cheese with smoked salmon. When it came my mouth watered. It was the most exquisite bagel i had ever seen pile high with delectably smoked salmon. I was expecting a bagel with Philadelphia smoked salmon cream cheese. Tasked with devouring this gourmet bagel i set to work the first half of the bagel i layered with cream cheese and two thin slices of salmon. This was dreamy but neglected the other delicious toppings included with the bagel. The second half i got creative i spread the capers into the cream cheese put the tomatoe on that followed by a heap of smoked salmon. They waitress came by and asked how we were doing. I explained my dilemma and asked if I was taking the correct approach to my meal and if she had any suggestions. She was so polite ensured me i was going in the right direction, brought me additional cream cheese and went back to work. We finished up our meal and she brought the check and that is when this happened. She comped my meal because it wasn't what i expected. I disputed this action as i very much enjoyed my meal. She couldn't be suaded. Thank you Sara for the memorable breakfast and the friendly experience at the Bahia Resort and hotel. Looking forward to our week stay on our return trip, Sincerely, Melanie Read less
