Recent guest reviews

They were nice enough to upgrade our room to a beach view room. Hotel staff was professional. Room are nice and you can get a microwave once you call front office.

Lily, my 5 year old, was excited to go to kid activities they had every day except monday& tuesday. Taylor & Kylie were great with her. It was right next to the pool and it was free! Room was spacious & clean. We had a great view of the bay!! The food was also really good! Highly suggest you wat at the cafe or order room service! Definitely will go back to this hotel when i am in San Diego!

I believe this hotel had high ratings...I paid extra to get the room with a view and two beds...when I got there I was informed that third party booking are a request and that they had no more of those types of rooms even though I was there the day before to confirm and the told me they would put me in a better room! I was also informed that I was staying on the same floor as a wedding party but not to worry they can't make any noise after midnight and if they do just call and complain and they would send someone. The room was somewhat shabby and beat up definitely not a 4 star or even 3.5. My room backed to a road on the first floor with a public beach where people stayed over night...did not feel safe! They moved me to a much better room the second night for which I was grateful!

I absolutely LOVE the Bahia Resort. Only resort I will stay at while in Mission Beach, San Diego. Free Parking and No resort fee. The staff is extra friendly, great pool to relax with outside bar. Private beach for tanning during the day and FREE boat rides with loads of entertainment. The grounds are lush and the rescue seals are precious!!! Excellent bar with a variety of cocktails and entertainment. No need to get into the car - walk to Belmont Park and the beach is at your feet along with loads of restaurants, shopping and entertainment. The Bahia Resort has never let me down. Feel super safe with all the security. The beds and pillows are so amazing --- actually overslept (that's a first).

Nice location and setting. The restaurant is excellent.

Staff are friendly. Room is clean with great views. Will definitely be back during the summer to enjoy their private beach.

The staff where awesome. The place is nice and quite, walking distance to Mission Beach

Stayed one night and upgraded to better hotel. Orbitz contacted hotel and they agreed to a full refund which I appreciated very much. Location, hotel staff and restaurant were great. Rooms need major upgrade.

the food was excellent! love being on the bay and the boat rentals and bikes are affordable.

Our room was very outdated. We were supposidely updated, but it turned out to be the fartherest building in the whole resort. It was so dimly lit at night, that it was actually dangerous to walk back to our room. The kitchen was from the 70's. No dishwasher, non working microwave, no kitchen supplies such as towels, soap etc, minimal dishes and the large burner on the stove did not work. Bathroom was even worse, no safety standards followed. No bar to hang onto to get out of the tub, shower combination. Lighting in the whole unit was dark and yellow. We took advantage of all water sports, biking, etc, since there were no activities or music except on Saturday and the food was redundant with no specials.

After checking in and getting settled in our room, I realized our family would be happier on the opposite side of the resort, facing the private beach and the bay where the Bahia Belle is docked. I figured the resort would likely be booked up since it was a Friday/holiday (St. Patrick's Day), but I checked with the front desk and although Julio wasn't able to switch us to a different room for our first night, he was able to make the switch for our remaining three nights. He made the process so easy! Our upgraded room was ready when we returned from our Saturday excursion, and the 2nd floor balcony suite was amazing! Thank you, Julio, for your attention to my request and very friendly personality.

The hotel was in a great location, but the property is dated and worn! We didn't receive housekeeping for the room until after 4:00 pm. Food was great and the service was fantastic! Still I wouldn't return - -

Our location was wonderful. Room was big and clean. Bed & pillows leave a little to be desired. But Would absolutely stay again if in the area. The bay view room has an amazing view, and staff was good.

We loved that our room was right on the private beach and Mission Bay. My daughter could go out anytime she wanted and we could see her from the room or one of the cabanas on the beach. Only drawback was the walk to the restaurant for breakfast. It was still a little chilly outside. Room was great! Refurbished and clean. We'd stay there again.

I arrived at 11am and the staff expedited my room to accommodate. I walked the grounds while waiting the short time for my room to be ready, and was impressed with the overall cleanliness of the grounds; as well as the hospitality and friendliness of the staff. The recreational facility, tennis courts, and swimming areas are fantastic. The indoor/outdoor lounge has reasonable prices and great Happy Hour deals. Easy walking distance to Mission Beach Ocean Walk, and many other sights. I will definitely stay at the Bahia Resort next time I am in town.

We stayed two nights and had a nice bed, clean room. Enjoyed the kitchenette to make it convenient to visit friends and have friends visit us.

I liked the location on the Bay but within walking distance of the ocean. It was great to be able to park right outside of our room. The kitchenette was well supplied. The outside of some buildings needed painting.

Nice hotel, great location! Staff was excellent. I was upgraded to a suite with bay view. Complete kitchen, living room and separate bedroom. The in room hvac was a little noisy and the living room was a bit dated. But overall it was a great find! While there I was traveling between mission beach to La Jolla to San Diego. 15 min from hotel to either city. Free parking for my rental car, right outside my door. What more could you ask for?

The heater was really loud and kept shutting off and coming back on all night. Just as I would fall asleep it would shut off and restart all over again. Finally at 3am I called the front desk and they said that they could send over security because maintenance wouldn't get in until the morning. I was there with my 5 year old, I wasn't going to have security come in at that hour. They didn't offer me another room, nothing. It was a freezing cold night, but the only way to get sleep was to just shut off the heater. I froze, but atleast got to sleep a bit. The following morning, I checked out as soon as possible. When I let the girl up front know, she offered me "free breakfast" that's the last thing I wanted. She didn't care that I had been up all night. What a waste of a night and money!
