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.
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).

Property 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.

Great time!

My stay was amazing for the most part. The place looks amazing and was very clean. The people for the most part were very welcoming and nice. I got a room that was ocean front and it was nice but at the time very cold. The weather at the time did take away from the experience for us because we had to buy sweaters when we were expecting to be in swim wear. The stores on the hotel ground are expensive for the clothes they offer. There are lots of things to see and do on campus for a family. The food prices is not too bad. Overall enjoyed my time there and will definitely return this summer!!

Perfect Getaway

We arrived on Friday and the front desk staff was very friendly and we were checked in in less than 5 minutes and escorted to our bungalow. I enjoyed all five pools on property and was able to sit on the beach at night by the fire pit or by the fire pit at the pool. The spa was nice but a little pricey. My bungalow was clean and comfortable. I was definately stay at Paradise Pointe again.

Needs some updating

The location was wonderful and beach and the bars were wonderful. However the standard rooms that we stayed in were in some need of some updating. The bathroom is tiny, the room smelt a little musty. Wife had to get some dryer sheets to make the room smell better. Looks like in the bathroom there was some water damage in the bathroom b/c they have the wrong shower curtain rod in the shower so water would leak down the side of the tub and get the drywall wet.

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!

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.

Relaxing College Spring Break

It was amazing how beautiful the resort is and what it has to offer! The staff were VERY friendly and accommodating. I came with a friend for a relaxing spring break vacation and I would definitely come back again! The only downside is the food. It is a bit expensive and if you were to go eat somewhere else, you would have to walk/drive off the property. Seaworld is walking distance. All in all, it was a great vacation!
