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 a white sand beach, five swimming pools, an on-site spa, an 18-hole putting course and a marina with boat rentals. Guests can choose from three different on-site restaurants, though Baleen San Diego is by far the most sophisticated, serving fresh seafood.
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 boats 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. Baleen San Diego, by far the fanciest, specializes in seafood. The other two eateries, Barefoot Bar & Grill and Tropics Bar & Grill, offer casual fare in a relaxed environment.

The nearby Caveman Pizza Company offers quality pies, salads and garlic knots using fresh homespun dough and ingredients. Available for grab and go, or enjoy free evening delivery.

Great honeymoon spot!

My husband and I had an amazing time here. Location was great, staff was very friendly. Room was nice and updated, just the right size. The island store was very convenient! Food was great as well. 4 pools to choose from, awesome landscaping. Very private and comfortable here, we definitely recommended it to anyone.

Nice but NOT super Nice

Room were clean and spacious but old.. Bed was high but mattress hard. Towels were ample and great.. Signage around hotel very poor!!! constantly getting lost as to how to find exit ,etc. One restaurant Ballein was excellent !!!! Location DIFFICULT for any access to downtown Parking at $30/ night outrageous with no option Would probably NOT return not because it was AWFUL.. just not worth $200 / night with all of the inconveniences above.

Best location at the best price!

We got a fantastic deal online during a sale, and with an additional coupon code for a Bayside Junior Suite on the beach. We had my daughter's 2nd birthday party there. All of our guests didn't have any trouble finding the room, the parking was free and it was a beautiful walk to our room. All the kids played in the shallow water, and then came back inside to rinse off. We had tons of privacy, there was no one else on the beach but us. Where else can you get that?!! We also had a grassy area to hang out and eat. The room had a wet bar and fridge that was just perfect for a party. There was a large closet to hold all of our behind the scenes items, and a roomy bathroom too. I just can't tell you how amazing this place is. You can also rent horseshoes, bocce ball, and it's included in the daily resort fee. They have 5 pools including an adult only pool. For parking and resort fee for 2 nights, it ended up being $100 extra. I knew this ahead of time, so it didn't bother me. The bonfire was fun at night time after our guests left. I think this might be a yearly tradition from now on!

Close- but not a Four Star!

Driving into the grounds of Paradise Point, one gets the feeling of a vast place your could get lost in. The trees, plants, flowers, and water features were wonderful. One look at the lobby and you got the feeling that you were in a time warp-1960's style! The staff there was very courteous and helpful. We were taken to our room, an upgrade at their suggestion, from what we had originally booked. The bungalows were down narrow little drives. It was evident that there were different sections with different views and amenities. Our room was suppose to have a view of Mission Bay. That was only possible if you looked out the front door that was covered by an attached curtain, as was the long narrow window to it's left. No large window to compliment the view-disappointing to not be able to see that great view all the time. The bed was comfortable and clean. Lots of towels provided. New flat screen, but the rest of the furniture was old and needed to accommodate the occupants with a little more functionability. We should have asked to see one of the larger fireside rooms. We grew to accept what we were going to be surrounded by. The larger of the two restaurants, the Baleen proved to be very good food with a knowledgable and friendly staff. We ate there three nights, due to it's being a great place with good food. We appreciated an adult pool to spend some time in the sunshine, which is what we went there to do. There were five pools in total. All in all we were sad to have our time at Paradise Point come to an end. We would consider coming back there, but are not sure we would feel comfortable recommending it to friends.

Entertainment tip: In Hotel

There were lots of choices at Paradise Point to spend your time doing. The fact that the grounds were large (44 acres) with walking paths, a 18 hole putting green, five pools, some of which were adults only. Hot tubs, and fire pits as well. Several types of bikes to rent. Not to mention a beach on Mission Bay to walk on.There were water activities on Mission Bay that the hotel offered that would have been great to do if the weather had been warmer. Or like us, we walked on the property as well as long walks to nearby parks on paths and to neighborhood eating and shopping spots. We really didn't take as much advantage of the activities as we could have. They were there though. You could spend time doing as much or as little as you wanted.

beautiful place, not good service

the location is perfect, nice and peaceful place to stay. BUT night staffs(front desk/phone) are not as good as morning staffs. they don't know how to talk to their guest politely. so if you have any question, just go front desk or call in the morning or during the day time. morning staffs are so much nicer than night staffs.

Oasis in San Diego

This hotel is great for a tropical getaway feel in the middle of a bit city. The rooms feel like private island bungalows. Would also be great for kids to safely run around and explore.

Extras cost !

Like $32 to park your car ? Are you kidding ? Then $17 for Internet ? They ruined an otherwise great experience by gaffing you with extras! Everyday ! Front desk guy talks really fast ... Just beware it cost another $50 a day on top of the price you receive ....
