    Pros and cons

    Mixed review on this property. Pros: The location is within walking distance of Mission Beach which is nice. Our room was large and clean. The staff was nice but the service was a bit lacking. The pool was open during the shelter in place order. Room service food was good. Cons: The property was quite dirty and run down. They were not providing housekeeping during the shelter in place and did not tell us that which I found odd. They did not even clear the room service trays from the hallways and the seagulls make a mess of them all of the property which was gross. The beaches allowed guests to walk on them but you could not stop or sit, even on the lagoon beach at the hotel. It seems like they are currently trying to fix up the property so it might be on an "upswing". Personally I would not stay there again but it was an ok hotel for the price. At least it was open :)

    Best Staycation San Diego Has To Offer

    My family and I had an amazing weekend at Bahia Resort. The pool is open, the building we stayed in just had some work done to it. Best of all when they found out it the stay was to celebrate my daughters 9th Bday, they put us in the Seaworld Suite for the weekend. Thanks for making her weekend even more special.

    Great food and service!

    My mother in law wanted us to have lunch with her while she was visiting. Since it is in room dining only she placed our order so it was ready when we arrived. I have to say every person we encountered made us feel welcome. What lovely service for people working at such an unsure time with this corona virus. Our encounter on arrival with Noah was enjoyable as he answered my questions and concerns about the hotel precautions. He made us feel at easy and the rest of the staff we encountered were nothing but friendly and professional. We can’t wait to come down on our own this summer! The food was delicious too for “take-out”! I highly recommend the fish & chips and the delicious Bahia Cobb salad! The only thing missing was a sweet for dessert! Next time!!

    Thank you

    This review is to thank Kianna at the reservations desk. She switched our room and was very nice! This thank you is long overdue, but better late than never. The hotel was nice and in a good location by the water.

    Excellent Getaway!

    Myself and two friends needed a couple nights away from home to just decompress. Rene, a truly pleasant and professional representative helped me with the reservations and she really set us up. We had a bay view studio room #453 and it was clean, roomy, and well attended by all of the staff. We had a beautiful view of the bay that was not obstructed. It was quiet and the beds were so comfortable. The pool and jacuzzi were so enjoyable! We plan to return next month! It was a great weekend getaway and we would highly recommend this resort!
