Paradise Point

San Diego, USA

The hotel

Overlooking spectacular Mission Bay in San Diego, you can really take advantage of the bayside setting here — chill out by the water or by one of the pools, go out in a sailboat or speedboat, or take surf lessons. Paradise Point is set on its own 44-acre island, with lush gardens and a mile-long white sand beach. One of the best things about it is that whilst its secluded spot makes you feel like you are a million miles away from it all, you're actually just minutes from downtown San Diego.

I did not feel the money we paid was worth it for me, we had lotta difficulties and we were not satisfied. We had problems with the key, telephone was not hooked up. The grounds and room was totally dated, everything felt like we were in 1962, when the place was built. We will not be coming back again!

Beautiful tropical setting in Mission Bay. Plenty of area to explore and activities to choose from. Beachfront cabanas offer large fire pits for evening/sunsets fires on the beach with friends and family.

The staff was outstanding. They all seemed so friendly and eager to help with any questions. In fact I was even stopped as I walked around taking in the sites and was asked if there was anything I needed help with. Everyone just made you feel welcomed.

Amazing! As close to a tropical paradise as you can get in California. Plenty of thing to do and beautiful grounds. You never have to leave the resort. Everything you need is right there within walking distance. We will come back again and again!
