The hotel is located in Mission Bay, and the sandy beach was just OUTSIDE of our room, really cool and fantastic! We were able to park our rental car just outside of our room, a very big advantage to upload the suitcases. We really had a great time there, since we lived very far away from the sea. The sea...

We stayed at the Bahia in October and enjoyed our stay. However, the room had a very musty smell that we were never able to get rid of (turned on fans, bought febreeze, opened the door). The back door of the bayside units open up to a public access road where many people have beach parties and some sleep/fish overnight....

We stayed at the Bahia last week, and we tried everything, so I'll try and be brief. First - The hotel grounds are well kept, clean, and relaxing. Parts of the hotel are showing their age, however all in all it's a nice place to stay and relax. The suite rooms are large enough, and somewhat modern and clean. There...

So much for a young family to love. Beach right outside door, plenty of space to play, run, and laugh. Comfortable beds, a restaurant on the property, and super close to Amy attractions. The property has lush gardens, wind protected pool, and rentals for bay water fun. We rented bikes to ride to Pacific beach too.

We loved the location as it was on Mission Bay and was just a short walk to Mission Beach, where you can sit and watch the waves or people or stroll along the ocean. Enjoyed the included tennis courts and the pool area. The kids will like the 2 harbor seals they have on sight. The only drawback was is...

The whole process was very smooth. The first contact was Macarena Carballo and she was very helpful and kind! We were then attended by Holly Nelson who set up a tasting for us, closer to the event date. She was very responsive and was always making sure all the planning was on track. It was a relaxing and amazing experience....

We chose the Bahia resort because it was very easy to drive to and well situated to visit San Diego. Our rooms were nice and clean. The pool was warm and well used.

Beyond the Bahia, seemingly countless options offering an array of culinary experiences are just minutes away. For those seeking to spend their vacation on the water, Bahia Resort Hotel boasts an assortment of options. Headlining these choices is the Bahia Belle, an 1860s-era sternwheeler that tours guests around the bay nightly.
