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.

SO SO!

I liked the location.. That's about it! The room had a musky smell to it that slapped you in the face when you entered. They were outdated and needed a renovation badly.That must be why they collect a $25 per day parking fee for an empty lot. I should of booked the car at the motel 6 down the street and saved a few bucks. Not to mention an extra fee ($12/day) for using the workout facilities. If comparing this hotel to another don't forget to add $25 per night for your car.

a little disappointed

The room was very musty. The carpet was damp from the AC running, and the room smelled. Not real impressed. We saw two skunks outside on two separate occasions. One was right next to our sliding glass doors. My kids were frightened. I told the staff and they didn't seem too concerned. Probably wouldn't stay there again for the price they charge and the $20 extra per night for parking. What a joke.

Should not belive in their room picture

I went to San Diego with my gf .Staff acted so not friendly. WHen we check in, a girl gave us a room with two beds. I had to come back and made a change and she said it was a mistake but I know it was not. THe room does look cheap with the price 150usd. It should be 70usd. I could not get promotion from orbits to upgrade to better room.( I dont think that is a real promotion, it was just a fake one)

Filthy Disappointment

The family had gone to San Diego to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city life. Decided to stay at this hotel due to location near Sea World, the beach, and public transportation and hoped that it'll be a good stay. The hotel room is very dusty when you first walk in and seems as old and dated as the décor. As we left and came back we notice lots of blood like spots on the sheets and ask the staff to please change the sheets, which took nearly an hour and a half to get around doing so. The bathroom had incredibly ugly yellow stains in the bath tub and again the staff member was informed of this and was told to us it'll be fixed in half an hour and it had never happened. The bed that was provided in the room was incredibly so uncomfortable and the décor was as dated as the hotel is. The Howard Johnson had better comfortable room all around and when the staff is going to serve you in the allotted time that is given.

Short walk to the Theme Park, Sea Word, public transportation, and it's near the beach. Use the public transportation to get around and get some great food.

The shower wall fell apart when there and there was no maid service until 5:00pm

I would not recommend this hotel for the price. The rooms need alot of work and the map location to get to the room was difficult. The shower feel in while we were there and you could see the patch jobs they had done to keep it together before. We also thought there were quite a few people that were not registered at the hotel using the pool. Anyone could walk through the door and use the facility. We would not stay there unless the whole place was brought up do date. The final blow was they charged$20.00 per night to park your own car.

paradise point

Arrived at hotel and only one specialist was at reservation desk who was on phone entire time and was given no indication of amenities. Said I received 'upgraded room' but I had to move since the window was not covered at night (even after they came and unscrewed lightbulb was quite bright with window uncovered)-- and the location was on a lagoon with no fence and I had twin toddlers. Also, there was no drain in bathtub so could not give kids a bath, and had to have someone come and fix TV which took over an hour.-- Second room was much better,but a bit dirty, no glasses in bathroom--just little doilies, and had to have a new remote delivered for tv. location was very close to sea world-- but don't understand why they did not provide a shuttle-- especially since they charged $25 per night for parking. Restaurant was nice.

Don't judge a book by it's cover

Spending time with our grand daughter was the best but the hotel staff while courtious could care less if you where told one thing and they delivered another. They changed our room for an interior room, did not supply coffee pots as stated on web site, public restrooms where not open, the rooms need updating and they also charge to park your car overnight which was also not disclosed upfront. We usually stay at the Hilton but they where booked so we tried this place. Would not go back

Good, bad and really ugly.

They charged $22 per day to park car and $10 per day for 24 hour internet connection. First day there, no towels in room, called and they delivered bath towels, no wash cloths or face towels. Long wait at front desk, only 2 persons staffing it with 6 available.

My review of Paradise Point Resort & Spa

The breakfast served at the outdoor restaurant was outstanding. The take-out food we ordered on the second evening (wings, shrimp, burger) was not of great quality. The burger was too rare (asked for medium) and the wings were too heavily coated with sauce.

Nice resort but the price sucked

The hotel was pretty and clean and in a great location.It would be a great vacation spot if you have kids,but not really that great for a couples get away.It was right next to the beach so u did not have to drive everywhere to get to them so that was nice.We did not have hot water for almost a whole day which really sucked. They have a lot of activities to do there but they charge u to do any of it and then on top of those prices you get charge a daily fee for all that including the internet rather you use them or not. Over all i would not stay there again.
