Private luxury in Mission Bay with putting course
Paradise Point Resort & Spa is located on a private, 44-acre island in Mission Bay, minutes from Sea World and the heart of downtown San Diego. The resort features more than 450 beach bungalow-style guest rooms amid a lush tropical garden life. Other highlights of Paradise Point include one mile of white sand beach, five swimming pools, an 18-hole putting course, beach cruisers, bonfire pits and a marina with sailboats, kayaks and jet skis. Vacationers also unwind with Balinese massahes at the on-site spa. Guests can choose from three different on-site restaurants, though Baleen San Diego is by far the most sophisticated, serving fresh seafood. The property is also close to Old Town, San Diego Zoo and Gaslamp District.
Highlights
  • Private location in the heart of Mission Bay
  • 18-hole putting course
  • Relax in the sun on a white sand beach
  • Located just minutes from Sea World
Rooms

Paradise Point Resort & Spa offers 462 rooms, including 30 bayside suites. All accommodations are beach bungalows, meaning every guest gets a garden view. Decor in Paradise Point's rooms is Balinese-influenced. Each room comes standard with a flat-screen TV, outdoor patio, MP3 docking station and an ironing board. High-speed Internet access is available (fees apply). Pets are welcome (fees apply).

Features

Resort accommodations don't get more private or exclusive than the Paradise Point Resort & Spa. The property is situated on its own island--a 44-acre rock in the middle of Mission Bay.

Guests receive complimentary access to a number of amenities when they stay, including the private white sand beach, five pools, a state-of-the-art fitness center and an 18-hole putting green. The resort boasts a private marina with sailboats, jet skis and kayaks for rent (fees apply). The Spa recreates a number of treatments from the Far East.

Three on-site restaurants offer dozens of choices for meals. Tidal, by far the fanciest, specializes in seafood. The other two eateries, Barefoot Bar & Grill and Tropics Cantina, offer casual fare in a relaxed environment. After a full day, patrons unwind with drinks while taking in coastal views at Bayside Lounge.

Dining

Tropics Cantina
The best of Baja, without a trip across the border! Located at the Main Pool, the Tropics Cantina serves authentic fresh Mex straight from Baja California. Get a taste of Mexicos colorful culture and cuisine in the form of homemade salsa, fish tacos, cochinitas, carne asada and frosty margaritas.
Tidal
Craft and catch converge at Tidal, perched where land meets sea on the shores of Mission Bay. At the helm is Chef Amy DiBiase, curating a thoughtful selection of local seafood and craft beverages that, like the ever changing tides, shift seasonally at Mother Natures whim.
Barefoot Bar & Grill
Barefoot Bar & Grill has been a local favorite for its panoramic Mission Bay views since opening in 1962. This legendary restaurant offers a laid-back atmosphere, lineup of California craft beers, and bold, creative takes on American dishes. Eat inside or outdoors next to a tropical waterfall and sea-life lagoon.
Caveman Pizza Company
This historic cave fires up quality pies, salads and garlic knots using only the freshest homespun dough and ingredients. Available for grab and go, or enjoy free evening delivery.
Bayside Lounge
Drink in coastal views, stunning sunsets and cool cocktails at this intimate outdoor lounge. Cozy fire pits and a menu featuring savory shared plates and boutique wines beckon casual group gatherings and lively conversation, though the 180 views of Mission Bay may just leave you at a loss for words.

Great weekend stay!

The resort is incredibly beautiful. The only complaint was that there were many spiders in the room. The beds were comfy and the landscaping was amazing! Close to Sea world and the zoo too!

Average Stay for Rates

We recently stayed at the Paradise and had a pleasant stay. The room was nice but the bathroom was small, out-dated, and had limited ventilation. You had to shower with the door open. All the outlets were loose, so it took some tricky balancing when trying to charge your phone or using any styling appliances. The atmosphere is private, not your typical hotel feel. The grounds are kept quite nicely and you can enjoy your stay there by renting a bike, walks, etc. You are charged per day for the amenities, so unless you are planning to use them, it is not worth the price. For families, there are plenty of things to keep the kids busy,. I would only stay there again if it was not < 150 per night.

Couple Getaway

The hotel is located very centrally, we were very close to everything!! It's a beautiful hotel the only issue I had was our room was cleaned very late in the day 5 p.m and was not always done properly. Bath mat was forgot, towels were forgot, they turned our heat on....a few little things. We wanted to eat at the only nice restraunt Baleen and we were told they were totally booked so book your dinner early. Other than that nice place to relax, very quiet and you have pretty much everything you need there.

Beautiful property, and excellent staff.

Our bungalow was across from the pool and hot tub, and 50 feet from the beach. The tropical plants reminded us of Hawaii. The waterfowl are an added attraction, and only the Seagulls got pushy. We stayed close to the resort, except for trips to close towns, Sea World, and Old Town. Nice place for all ages.

Could have been a better value, but was still special

When staying at Paradise Point for a conference, the seemingly mandatory "Passport to Paradise" was no value at all. This was an unexpected extra charge that was presented as though it was part of the room rate that had been reserved. The things covered by this were described as free. But, it was only free because you were PAYING for it. There was no time to use the spa features covered by this and the Internet that was covered by the extra passport charge of $17 per day worked so poorly that I actually shut off my wireless and used my data plan on my phone to receive my e-mail. The staff was especially cordial, but when I needed something time sensitive sent to my room, I waited for over 2 hours to get it and was told to call back every 20 minutes if it wasn't delivered. The birds and grounds were uniquely beautiful. We would stay again, but not without a discounted price and absolutely NOT with the passport to paradise included.

Not worth the price

Paradise Point resort was nice if you had kids and wanted to play in the pool all day. However, the rooms were not worth the price that we had to pay. They have been updated but aren't "luxury" by any means. The resort also charges a $17 a day fee to use the pool and $15 a day for parking, even though parking is plentiful. We stayed in a private villa, which was not private at all. The villas are really duplexes. Would not stay there again unless the price was drastically reduced.
