Private luxury in Mission Bay with putting course
Tucked away on gentle Mission Bay next door to SeaWorld, this 44-acre island resort features comfortable, California bungalow-style rooms amidst lush, tropical gardens and lagoons. Explore one mile of beach, five swimming pools, and enjoy various amenities including tennis courts, an 18-hole putting course, beach cruisers, bonfire pits, and a private marina equipped with sailboats, jet skis, and kayaks. Dine at one of two waterfront venues, then relax and refresh with a signature Balinese massage at the plush spa. Secluded yet centrally located, the resort is minutes from top attractions including Old Town, the 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 65 bayside suites. All accommodations are bungalow-style, meaning every guest gets a private patio, typically with a garden or bay 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 (fees apply). The resort boasts a private marina with sailboats, jet skis and kayaks for rent (fees apply). The Spa recreates a number of treatments from Hawaii, Fiji, Bali and other exotic island destinations.

Five on-site restaurants offer dozens of choices for meals. Tidal, by far the fanciest, specializes in seafood. The other three eateries, Barefoot Bar & Grill, Caveman Pizza Company 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.

A place for a birthday party

We came to celebrate for my son's 9th bday and he brought 3 friends. The grounds are a wonderful backdrop for a boys imagination and exploring. They had a great time catching crabs on the rocks next to Barefoot, swimming at the large pool, watching the movie at night, roasting Smores over the fire pit, practicing their putting on the putting course, playing some soccer on the greens and just having a great time. I will say the rooms were something to be desired. They definitely need upgrading and ours smelled. The floor boards were rotting and the bathroom needed attention. However the service was above average.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

bring your own putting green and balls so you can play and not pay. Bring firewood and grab fixing at the store so you can build your own fire in one of the pits on the beach - great for cooking hotdogs & smores - great for families!

Nice Vacation

Hotel surroundings were very pretty, but the room was not particularly nice, and there was a lot of noise coming from behind the room. Also, the in-room tv movie system did not work.

family friendly

The Paradise Hotel is a lovely setting and the rooms were large and well arranged. The lobby and grounds are nicer than the rooms. Cleanliness was marginal. The ammenities are all available, but every single one comes at a preminum extra fee. Front desk staff was very helpful and knowlegable. Overall an adequate choice but I would probably not go back.

Nice location.

On the plus side, the grounds are beautiful. The service staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient. My appointment in the spa was the best I've experienced. On the minus side, they charged you for everything. They added on a manditory 20% gratuity for the spa visit. For TV it was $5-6 per show, $12-19 for a movie. Extra charges each day to use the fitness center and other amenities. The food in the bar was okay. There were ants in my room that devoured the midnight snack I left on the counter.

Pricey!

The hotel was fine and the staff was very nice but the prices for incedentals and meals was outrageous. I have traveled for years and don't mind paying a fare price for things but this hotel can be compared in price for food etc... to the high end hotels in Vegas back in the early 2000's. A basic manicure was $45(3 x's the price I pay at home, a standard breakfast was $20. I stayed here because I was traveling alone and I thought it would be safe, and it was just a little too pricey for what I got.

good family getaway

Great city San Diego,absolutely loved it.People are so friendly here,must be the sunshine.I would recommend the resort with one exception.Get a room with the view of the bay,the room we stayed in had the incoming road in front of it so we couldn't enjoy the balcony.The resort is very beautiful with lots of great smelling flowers everywhere.On the whole i would recommend it and come back with my family.

Mistake with room type

Hotel for four night stay. Not a destination spot for us, simply convenient for where we needed to be. Arrived for late check-in. Booked room w/two queen beds. We are given a room with one queen and a pull-out sofa. Couldn't provide us with another room until 4:00 pm the next day. Lost an article of clothing of mine when they moved us to a room with two queen beds...which was still not the exact room we had booked.

good and not so great

We were disappointed in our stay at Paradise Point, expected more. the only highlight was the beautiful grounds, landscaping and outdoor atmosphere they created. the room was dated, smelled musty and moldy. When we called about the smell, we were told they would look into it and we never heard anything back.You could hear everything the guests next door were doing in their bathroom. Several days our room was not attended to until after 5pm. Other comments about charging extra for activites and even parking were also a turn off to us. We stayed 5 days, weather was cool (late April) so water activities were not used. Prices in restaurant outlets were very high, even in comparison to off property restaurants we visited. we would not return to this resort.

Nice resort, hidden prices

We were there for two nights and it was a really nice resort. It was clean and really nice to walk around. We ate at the barefoot restaurant and the food was not great, but the setting was awesome. The room was really nice looking, however the floors were kind of dirty. We were overall very happy with the resort [...]
