Great location but read on...
The location is great and I like the vibe of this dated but beautiful hotel. The highlight is the cove known as North Star Beach. This would be five star but I deduct one point always for BS resort fee -- every hotel in this category has a pool and we all know this is just a middle finger given to guests. Also, they have A HUGE PARKING fee even though they have no parking garage, parking attendant (you can drive to your villa) and San Diego is full of huge free parking lots in Mission Bay. Very un Californian and very un San Diego to charge NYC parking fees. So another star off.
Alyx made out trip!
We came here not expecting much. We booked this last minute and it was our wedding weekend. I was nervous it wouldn't what I wanted it to be. We were treated by Alyx who took great care of us. Our room was beautiful on the water and the tiki bar brought the island culture. This place is a must.
Celebration of Life 4 day event
It's not about the rooms, or the amenities ,although they are very good..what impressed us was the service from the front desk, the events planner, the housekeepers, security, the nice guys who gave us rides on their little jitneys when we couldn't find our room! Service couldn't have been better!
Very clean rooms and facilities. We loved the Barefoot Bar on premise as well. The weather did not cooperate so the lobby was great to play ping pong and cards. Staff was very helpful and friendly. We would come back and enjoy nicer weather.
Paradise in Hawaii
It feels like Hawaii at the resort- sb beautiful, relaxed and semi-tropical. Palms and lagoons everywhere with an abundance of birds. And the bay surrounds the resort. The bungalows harken back to a former period of time but they are recently renovated and very comfortable. We were upgraded to a junior suite for our elongated stay so that we could feel much at home, with kitchen, living and dining areas as well as the large patio. It is truly paradise!! My family love to join me at the Barefoot Bar and running their dog on the public beach (oops. That is probably a secret.). Reservations were very easy with the help of Jody and Belle. And I really appreciated the front desk help of Jai and Alisha (?).
