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.

Image of the Tripadvisor rating 5 star prices, 3 star experience

5 star prices for a 3 star experience. I’m sure it was once a great resort, but it’s well past its prime. The rooms are average, the amenities are average and the infrastructure is well-worn. We expected some post-COVID hiccups, but even with that factored in, we felt the service wasn’t up to par. There are better places to spend your money.

We came here for a family birthday and were sad to find it is far from luxurious. The quality and care alone does not justify the high price tag. Our room had no toiletries, peeling paint and a broken bed frame upon arrival. Repeated calls to the front desk were never answered. Upon speaking to the front desk in person, and asking for a manager,… Read more
We came here for a family birthday and were sad to find it is far from luxurious. The quality and care alone does not justify the high price tag. Our room had no toiletries, peeling paint and a broken bed frame upon arrival. Repeated calls to the front desk were never answered. Upon speaking to the front desk in person, and asking for a manager, we were met with "we are short staffed due to Covid." This also seems to be a party location and not solely for hotel guests. The neighboring room had parties every night with around 20 people in a 4 person room, many we found to not be staying at the hotel. They spilled over onto our patio and used our chairs. We spoke with the neighbors several times before calling the front desk. Despite saying they would send staff over, no one ever arrived. Our other family members had similar issues with their neighbors. The only bright light was our server at the restaurant. We decided to contact management after we came home and we have still not gotten any resolution, only excuses and push back. What a disappointing stay and very stressful trip. Please do not waste your money. Read less

I have pretty high standards when it comes to hotels (I just returned from a stay at The Four Seasons), but I also appreciate a deal. I was traveling with my 2 boys (ages 12 and 10). I wanted a hotel with pool access and something close to the ocean, so I picked this place and was pleasantly surprised. I paid $233 per night and I have to say, for… Read more
I have pretty high standards when it comes to hotels (I just returned from a stay at The Four Seasons), but I also appreciate a deal. I was traveling with my 2 boys (ages 12 and 10). I wanted a hotel with pool access and something close to the ocean, so I picked this place and was pleasantly surprised. I paid $233 per night and I have to say, for that price, my room was a steal. We were a few steps away from the open bay (Mission Bay) and our access felt private. There are five pools on the property, but we stuck to one, which was also close to our room. The kids had a blast! Our room was very clean and practical, large closet, toilet and shower separate from sink and vanity, king size bed (which was comfortable), pull out couch, and a really nice grassy patio area with outdoor games. There was only one restaurant on the property that was open, but it had a lot of options and was reasonably priced, probably less expensive than your standard restaurant. There was a convenience store on-site, also reasonably priced. Our room was not cleaned daily, but I was aware that due to COVID, it would not be. Good help is hard to find post-COVID, so it's understandable. However, whenever I called to have my trash emptied or asked for extra towels, someone came in a timely fashion. Whenever I called the front desk, they answered and in fact, prior to my arrival, I had a few questions and someone always answered the phone and my questions. I'm a runner and what a great location! Was easily able to get a 9 mile run in along the bay (the gym wasn't great). A few nice touches...my husband joined us for a day and they gave him a free parking pass and didn't charge me extra. I had my own parking spot right next to my room. Fire pits all around the property for making smores or just hanging out, plenty of outdoor games; just an overall really nice family vibe. I felt like we were camping, but had the luxury of a nice room and restaurants. There is an adults' only pool, but if you're looking for some quiet couple time, this may not be the place for you. It's very casual and family oriented (aka lots of kids). It was unseasonably cold during our stay (high 60s end of June), but the pools were warm enough for the kids. I'm really surprised by all of the negative reviews. My review is based on the price I paid and I was really pleased. I'd definitely stay again, but sadly I heard they are remodeling it in November. I hope it's still affordable. Read less

We came to the Resort to celebrate our wedding anniversary but we’re underwhelmed at its best.

We came to the Resort to celebrate our wedding anniversary but we’re underwhelmed at its best. The resort only has one operating restaurant out of the 3 advertised (one only opens at certain days so tough luck if you’re visiting Monday/Tuesday). The main swimming pool fills up quickly (no restaurant there either) so you can’t find a sit there. Our room also was missing lawn chairs and was very barely stocked on essentials, for a longer stay like ours having only 2 paper cups is not enough. We called to ask for a few more but never got anything. In the end unless you have a car to be traveling outside for food etc it can feel like a bit of a trap being here. It feels like it’s a good option for families with children who are prepared to bring enough food and utensils to last their trip. Read less
