Recent guest reviews

Excellent hotel room in a hidden oasis. We wouldn't stay anywhere else in San Diego. It was perfect for a romantic retreat or family vacation.

Room was clean and well attended. Phone answered promptly and helpful with questions. Good communication between requests and service. Very friendly staff

One thing I need to learn is when you book through a travel website other then the hotels, you are often treated differently. we had a problem at check in and when they asked how we booked the room and we answered Orbitz, suddenly they acted almost annoyed with us. The attitude was, what do you expect when you book it through a discount website ( not the first time we have noticed that at hotels). Also the staff needs to understand you are on vacation and your schedule might not be the same as theirs. Case in point, if we want to relax in our room on the beach and have a nice cup of coffee while enjoying the beach that might entail us not leaving our room until 10am. Problem is if you are not out of your room early (10am on vacation didn't seem too crazy late) your room will not get cleaned till the following day, even if you call and request it. So we learned that we had to get up and out of the room early every day to accommodate the housekeeping staff . Not a problem while on a business trip but not as much fun when you have a family of four all having to rush to get out early to accommodate housekeeping. Other then that , the food was good the beach was incredible and the rest of the staff was fantastic.

Beautiful hotel, love the fire pits and how green everything was. The only down side to it is the hotel staff is terrible. When I arrived to check in the lady at the front desk didn't show me where my room was or how to get there. There are 3 restaurants which are good but expensive. Everything closes early so bring your own stuff to the fire pits on the beach. The pools are nice and heated. The gift shop was very expensive. The room was great. I loved the private patio out back.

We stayed in an ocean-side bungalow for a week in March/April. It was me, my wife and 2 kids. I can say that the place itself is very cool and had a lot of things for the kids to do. They had bike rentals on property, the beach, a few pools, tennis courts and just a lot of space to explore. The reviews I read leading up to it really did a good job of describing the rooms. They are just dated all around. The bathroom was completely functional, just not something you'd find at a high end resort. The beds were ok, no complaints on that. The rooms themselves were kind of stuffy, no real drawer space anywhere. The rooms will not knock your socks off, but the rest of the resort was great. The restaurants are a bit overpriced but the food was fantastic. The kids really loved the main pool, it's a 0 depth pool which was perfect for my 5 year old. Everything was as I expected it for the most part.

Brought my family here. We rode bikes, swam in pool, paddle boarded, had a bonfire! We absolutely loved our time!

The rooms are so humid your clothes are left damp, the soda machines all say sold out. You ask for something at the coffee stand in the lobby & it's also sold out of everything. They whole hotel is badly distributed, you have to have a bell man escort you to the to your room & back in a golf car which causes you to spend more by tipping them. And everything is extremely over priced. A kids mac & cheese with milk and apples was $27 dollars!!! Outrages, never going there again.

The rooms could use a complete makeover. Bed was uncomfortable and the water temp in the shower was never consistent. Step out the door onto the beach made it all worth the stay though. Homey feel as well and the room was good size.

From the moment I open the door and stepped inside...I knew this would be a very short stay. The room has an old smell to it and there was an outdated couch in the corner that's made of fabric that it so dirty, we had use our bath towels to sit . Although there is a great view of the bay, the windows were dirty and at night we constantly we killing flying bugs. In short the rooms need to be better kept! The internet connection is not very good, causing us to constantly reboot and to re-log on. The cable TV channel selections are poor.

Amenities were great. Bathroom was a little dated. No fridge in room or micro but price was good and food at restaurants was great

Did not like the uncarpeted room. Blanket was rough.

My stay was peaceful and relaxing. Room was spotless. Staff was great. It's always a pleasure to stay here.

I have stayed here while attending a conference at San Diego Convention center. It's quite relaxing and comfortable. Especially, the individual home style was giving me a good impression. I haven't had a chance to enjoy many activities there. But the restaurant was much better than I expected.

Even though I had a confirmed, paid-in-full booking of a room with a king size bed, the staff gave my room away due to checking in at 6pm when check in starts at 4pm. They stated they were fully booked and another customer checking in before me wanted a king size bed. So I was placed in a room with 2 queen sized beds. They asked me if I would be okay with the room change, I stated my displeasure, so they found me a room with a king sized bed the next day. Then, during the third day of my stay, I requested my room be cleaned since I had left the "do not disturb" sign up during the cleaning staff's regular rounds in the morning. Apparently the request was forgotten; also to my displeasure. After these instances, service was quicker and more efficient. But because of these instances, my rating stands as it is.

It was a wonderful, relaxing vacation with wonderful grounds to walk around offering many pool options. The fire pits at night at the one pool was great. Nice places to eat on property as well. Will recommend to friends and family.

Very relaxing getaway. Bayfront room highly recommended. Likely a very different experience than most of the rooms which do not have a water view.

Hotel staff were very nice and accommodating. Especially the front desk. Room was clean and comfortable. But there were cigarette burns on the pull out couch in the living room. We ate dinner and had drinks with friends at the Barefoot bar outside. Inside the restaurant was quite dingy and dirty. I told the host that the bathroom was out of toilet paper and soap in one of the sinks and the trash can was over flowing with paper all over the floor. Went back in an hour later and it was still the same. It seems as thought the hotel has gone down hill quite a bit since we stayed there a few years ago. They don't seem to be keeping up with the updating anything. Overall room was nice and quite clean. We would likely stay there again but wouldn't pay full price. Great place to stay with kids for a family vacation.

The hotel has potential but doesn't live up to it. It appears they tried to remodel but took shortcuts making the interior rooms feel cheap and not clean. The bathroom tub was old and moldy when we arrived. They said they didn't have any other rooms available but did try to clean it promptly. The safe did not work but again it was replaced upon request. The service is disappointing not at all resort/hotel quality. We were not provided with any information about the property upon arrival and had to search for a map from a concession store to determine where the pools were located as well as places to eat and activities. There is a lot to offer and it could be a very unique destination but they need to invest in the property. I would not recommend this hotel. I've stayed at the Catamaran and it is much nicer and closer to Mission Beach. It's got great service and friendly staff.

The staff are amazing, cheerful and helpful. They're definition of a king size bed does not match mine, I have one.

There's lots of sandy beach but the water is muddy and full of seagrass all the way around. Since we couldn't beach swim I was very Disappointed. ..also looked forward to a bonfire but all the pits were taken. Looks like a perfect resort for a family taking kids to Sea World and a jet ski beach is right across the highway. Very nice staff.
