The hotel

You’ll be spoilt for choice for things to do at San Diego Mission Bay Resort. Spread over 18 waterfront acres, you can enjoy spa treatments, play tennis or go sailing, take dips in the pool and strolls along the sandy beachfront. Choose to eat on the waterfront looking out across Mission Bay, enjoy drinks around an outdoor fire pit or hide away with a fresh pastry and a Zoka coffee in the café. Kids will love it at this retreat too — there’s a seasonal Kids Kamp, beach games and bike rentals, as well as dive-in films by the pool and s'mores by the bayside fire pits.

The servers at the pool were always upbeat and helpful. Adam the bartender was great. Ron who who worked in the mornings was also super friendly and welcoming. We really enjoyed having live music every day. Our rooms were big, had nice bathrooms, and had an outdoor seating area. Our two rooms also connected which was very helpful. This is a great resort for families. Read less

The rooms were very clean and cleaned daily with excellent service and support when requested. The customer service for check in started out rocky with the lady I attempted to check in with blowing me off as it was not check in time. However, I went through another line and the man that assisted actually checked for my room and allowed check in early. Read less

Nice resort, but has been taken over by dogs now that it is "pet friendly". Dogs barking at all hours in hotel rooms, restaurants, by the pool, etc. Staff at hotel did little to nothing to assist in keeping dogs under control, as they seemed hesitant to confront the dog owners. Witnessed our waiter trip over a dog leash of a dog that would not stop barking in the hotel restaurant. I love dogs, but these dog owners at the hotel were a bit much. Would look elsewhere for a hotel to stay at. Read less

My family loves our time at the Mission Bay Resort. The kids had a great time at the pool with the activities and treats. The pool side food was delicious and so were the drinks. We can’t wait to come back!
