Paradise Point

San Diego, USA

The hotel

Overlooking spectacular Mission Bay in San Diego, this elegant resort is where one can take advantage of the bayside location by renting a sailboat, speedboat, or take surf lessons from the hotel's full-service marina. Set on its own 44-acre island incorporating lush, tropical gardens and a mile-long, white sand beach. One of the best things about Paradise Point is that whilst the secluded location makes you feel like you are a million miles away from it all, you are actually just minutes from downtown San Diego - with all this beautiful city has to offer!

My wife and I came to celebrate our anniversary for a one night away from home and a spa treatment. The horror started with a security guard walking in on my naked wife and I in a private retreat section of the spa. He unapologetically stood there staring at my naked wife, with his sidekick stooge pushing the door aside to get a better look, until I yelled at them to “get the F out”. Afterwards instead of being apologetic about his misjudgment and shameful action. Then, to top it off, this morning at 6:11 am the alarm clock went off, likely set by a previous guest. Why housekeeping doesn’t check these between guests is beyond me. And of course, after being up at 6 am who can sleep when the blackout shades don’t cover the arch windows at the top. That was a serious misjudgment in design (see pic I posted). Finally, this place is near to the airport so you can listen to every plane fly in and out of SAN because the windows are very thin. I wish there was something they could do to undo the damage but unfortunately the only real restitution that we would accept is time travel to go back 24 hours and choose to go elsewhere. No amount of refunds or future credits would ever make us come back here for any reasons, including giving away free nights to others. Don’t walk, run away from this place if you’re even considering SD for a relaxing trip. Read less

Overall very good!!!! But like I said why not just in life resort fees into room rate??? Between that and parking fees room was 300 a note not 220. People are not stupid just include fees and it would be better instead of making people think it is really reasonable room rate in reality resort and parking fees are a rip.

We stayed recently at Paradise Point and the food at Tidal and The Bare Foot Bar were good. The best part by far was the friendly staff. A clerk named Sammie helped us at the front desk and was amazing the whole time. She even turned out to be our complimentary tennis lesson instructor too which was a nice added benefit.

She made our stay memorable and worth the cost. Also the bonfires on the lagoon side are fun and social. Read less
