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.

Great Family Spot

We stayed at this resort while in town for a wedding. The room was pleasant but very small. We had one of the garden rooms with two queen beds. The location of the room made up for its size though - step right outside the door and we were on the bay. It's a great kid-friendly spot, but also would be a romantic getaway for anyone traveling with a partner, or even with a friend (check out the spa and pools). It is one of the most beautiful spots I've stayed in San Diego, and very quiet and relaxing. If you had time (and money) it would be easy to unpack and stay on the resort without ever having to leave. Sea World is actually within walking distance - if you wanted to save some money on parking. It's also a very short distance to PB. There was a fire pit located right outside our room, with big chairs, and we were able to sit around the fire with friends drinking wine while the kids roasted marshmallows one evening. Heaven! Our gripes: The online site mentions a $19 "passport to paradise" that you can buy for unlimited access to all the amenities. It also says you can pay a la carte. However, once we were there, we were told this $19 charge per day is required for all guests. What? Wouldn't this be good to know before booking? Perhaps you should change your misleading advertising on the website. This was especially irritating to us because we didn't use a single one of the amenities. (It was a short trip, so we didn't even have time to use the pool or spa!) And don't forget to add $32 a day for parking. We ate breakfast with a large group in the barefoot bar and grill. The food was decent enough - a tad pricey for breakfast - but the service was terrible. Once she took our order that was the last we saw our server. We didn't eat there again. This is a small one, is the terrible coffee, both in-room and in the lobby's cafe. If you like good coffee, skip the ridiculous $4 lobby coffee and drive down the street. I would love to stay again, but the extra fees and overall cost might be the only reason to keep us away.

Ants...but the staff handled it...

So when you check in you are overwhelmed with how beautiful the lobby and grounds are. Our original suite was beautiful as well, but we found ants in the kitchen area...which doesn't surprise me given the lush naturey grounds...but it became a problem. The staff came quickly and since they couldn't fix the problem gave us an upgrade to a different suite. The rest of our stay was perfect. The staff was amazing. More of a family spot and very close to rest of tourist destinations in San Diego. If you do rent a car, be weary of the daily parking fee!

great family escape

The pools were the hit for us! The kids spent 4 days swimming and splashing. I do wish the food available at the main pool was a little easier to access, as i was alone with my kids, and would have to drag them out of the pool to go order. friendly staff...fun to feed ducks and visit turtles. we would go again.

Family getaway

The grounds of this resort are outstanding. However, it is away from a lot of the things to do in San Diego. You must take a taxi cab everywhere you go ( approximately $25+ to downtown, one way). If you want to stay at the resort and swim, this is a great place. The rooms were average, at best. There is basically only two restaurants on site which are very expensive..........$75 - $100 for breakfast with a limited menu for a family of four at Barefoot Grill. Baleen restaurant even more pricey and not open for breakfast. You will have to pay for all the amenities on site. ( i.e. $36 for four to play putt-putt golf ). Putt putt course is a natural grass course, so very difficult for young kids to play. Grounds are very well maintained and beautiful. Staff was very helpful and courteous. Would not stay at this resort again as most of the things to see and do in San Diego are closer to downtown. Pay more to stay at a hotel downtown and save on the taxi fares and food costs. Overall, a 5 out of 10.
