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 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!

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.

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!
