Quite Almost every thing but the most was the $20 parking charge. after $300 per night they ask me pay for the parking! !!!!!!
Great value for the money! Lots of local activities to do on the property, and wonderful accommodations throughout. It's a great place to try Stand Up Paddle Boarding for your first time! Rooms are spacious if you get the suite, and we really loved the grounds! It's a tropical paradise! Well maintained! The restaurants are pretty good, we would recommend the Sunday brunch at Oceana! Also, take advantage of the Bahia Belle cruise in the evening hours. Unfortunately, when you make a late night request, the staff doesn't come up to your room and bring you whatever you need. Aka, we needed some late night towels and we were told to come down to the front desk (all the way from the tower rooms) and get them ourselves. This has never happened to me, especially at a "4-star" resort. In addition, I have been to many spas in my lifetime, and I felt that their spa treatment was very overpriced for the quality of massage received. Overall, we can't decide if we would come back because the positives were so great, and the negatives were so bad! We are 50/50.
Beds are comfy, helpful and courteous staff, great location. All was great. No complaints.
We had a great time. Daughters wedding was fabulous, every detail was handled beautifully. We had many out of town guest that were as pleased as we were!
Great location. Friendly Staff, Nice rooms. Paid Parking. Most spa functions are at additional costs.
Location is great right at the mission bay beach front and the oceana restaurant sits facing the mission bay beach. Staff is friendly at hotel as well as the restaurant. Stayed at the tower. While wifi connection was excellent and convenient, the rooms need update. In particular, the air conditioner (heater/cooler) spews out bad odor.
They have the best beds and pillows! We liked the separate bedroom and living areas with refridge and coffee maker, which was easy to use and enabled me to make my morning oatmeal. Was nice to have a view of the Bay.
Close to Pacific Beach The AC went out in our building they were not able to give us a different room. My 2 month old baby ended up with a heat rash it was terrible. Then the soap dish was covered in hair as the last customer shaved and tiny hairs were all over our soap. The humidity without an AC was unbearable. We paid way too much for what we got. Hotel did nothing about any of this.
Liked the views of the ocean and bay, staff were very friendly, loved the warm water in the pool
Location for an active family is perfect. Running beach biking water sports all close Rooms could use some updating sliding doors hard to use leaking faucets
The beach was great with lots of rentals for paddle boards etc...The setting of the hotel on it, the pond with the ducks was a big hit with the kids as was movie night at the pool with a giant screen as they swam. So close to Sea World you could almost walk there! The map to the hotel left off cross streets at the signal turn, so I passed it a couple of times, only difficulty was finding the hotel from the map printed with hotel info.
Our 1st rm was in back on top and view of bay was Beautiful. Rm was big n very clean. Our 2nd night we got moved to even better rm at private beach bcuz we had issue w/ next door neighbors. That was special surprise that hotel gave us not only was rm gorgeous but workers even put Happy Anniversary card n tray of choc strawberries platter. Thx front desk workers Kevin, Cynthia, Jason, Devon, Jacob, Majso and manager who made our special weekend the Best Anniversary Getaway Ever. on Jan 27-29th weekend!!! We are Definitely coming back for our Anniversary again here.. drive or walking distance area is a plus. Again Thank You Bahia Hotel for unforgettable weekend!! I Dnt really have anything to say about the workers or Rooms!!! Beautiful Spot. Only problem we had was we were there for Anniversary and we Dnt get out much bcuz of our big family. I believe the hotel just made over sight but they put us next to couple w kids. let just say we needed to move w/o any more problems come about. We let the front desk know of situation and they were very polite and rush our 2nd rm. I believe everyone got a win win out of it!!
I love the seals and the food at the restaurant and bar were very good. I don't really have any negative things to say.
The private beach and the complementary cruise
Friendly staff, beautiful facilities and it is located next to everything.
the staff was friendly and room was nice upon arrival. The beach access very convenient with comfortable cabanas. The shower didn't drain well. Had to ask for coffee packet after the service staff didn't clean the coffee maker or leave coffee for the next day. The air conditioner kept turning off in the middle of the night and the room became stuffy. The in room safe didn't work.
Nice property and nice room but needs updating, property is a bit stale. Nice hotel for families. Room was too warm at night and cool air was too loud. Bathroom sink very small, but water pressure was great. Television at a bad angle and couldn't see the full screen from bed. Only received bottled water first night, was not replenished.
Only regret is that we did not have enough time there. Loved our room and lagoon. Felt lush and tropical!
We arrived at the room and the towels were dirty- used.
Resort was amazing. Great location, friendly staff, and fun activities and accommodations (bike and boat rentals etc) for the whole family! Really did feel like a resort getaway! Only downside was the bathrooms. Not terrible, but something should be done there. Small flies swirling around, kind of dirty, and water resistant paint needed etc. Also outside furniture had many spider webs, needed a cleaning.
I can bring my Hobiecat right on the beach in front of my room. Bon fires on the beach at night. House keeping didn't show up on the second day. No coffee no shampoo The hotel is on the beach so you go thru a lot of towels.
Beach view pretty Beds were hard as a rock, woke up with kinks in neck and shoulder. Tossed and turned all night every night. Pillows not very plush / soft. Mattress very uncomfortable. Lots of flies and bugs in room. Overall room leaves A LOT to be desired. If I was rating just room i would give it one star. Didn't feel like a 4 star resort.
The location was good and the grounds were nice. The bed was very uncomfortable. Nothing great about the room that made it any better than a Motel 6. The price was steep for what we got. The one night we went to the hot tub it had way too much chlorine in it. When we kicked the jets on it was burning our eyes. Both the AC and the fridge were extremely loud. I had to leave the AC off and unplug the fridge to fall asleep. A lot of extra fees even after booking a total cost package. Those fees were over $100 in"resort fees" and then parking fees on top if that. All in all, I would rather have stayed elsewhere considering what we did on the trip.
It was an awesome much needed getaway for both my husband and I. Such a peaceful serene setting nestled in Mission Bay. It was perfect. Rooms were always nice and clean, the property itself is kept I pristine condition despite the wildlife, aka birds. Would recommend it to anyone whether young or old single or with a family this place is AWESOME!
The accommodation/rooms need to be refreshed the rooms look old and not well kept. This is not a four star resort and the price is too high.
We loved the golf course and beach access so near. Felt like we were in Hawaii, beautiful grounds Fun bar and live band A few more activities would be nice, perhaps led by the hotel and options for things to do with family. Room exteriors need to be updated. Finish construction asap. Update pool areas to include a "babies" water fun area A facelift of the buildings and some paint is key.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating in every way. The grounds were really nice and relaxing. You do get hit with an excessive parking fee, which I find weird since the hotel owns the whole area. The rooms could use a little bit more TLC (better cleaning, spiderwebs, and bugs in room). Our outside chairs were beyond filthy, sitting in them would have left our clothes stained in dirt/filth. Beds were okay comfort wise. Any issues brought up to the staff was quickly and generously remedied.
beautiful sunsets really terrible hidden $37 parking fee and the resort upkeep not great. also bring a trash can because there is not a single one on the property.
I enjoyed the view of the water and the jungle like grounds. For $300 a night the rooms should be updated. The bed was of low quality and the TV did not swivel to face the bed. The bathroom was old and needed to be redone. The air conditioner sounded like it was on its last leg.
Pool was amazing, nice restaurant, friendly staff Parking price is ridiculous, cost an extra $60 just to have my car at the hotel I was staying at! The room temp was weird, would get really chilly with air on and really stuffy with it off, setting thermostat didn't help. Restaurant was nice but also pricey.
pools and location were great. lots of family activities. Noisy rooms, bad wireless (could not get reception in the pool area)
Great location. Fun pool for the kids! Paying for parking.
View, patio, comfortable bed, clean, no smell in room. Paying for parking ($35 per night) $100 fee for my dog. One kind of fancy restaurant on the premises. Should have some place nearby where you can purchase coffee. We had to walk a bit to Einstein brothers which is a bagel place just to get coffee. They had coffee in the rooms but then you're using paper accessories like the cream.
Juat awesome place Expensive parking, resort fee added to my bill
I love the hotel overall and the on site restaurant/facilities. The rooms could use a bit of upgrading, specifically the bathrooms need to be updated. the shower and shower hardware was not very clean or nice.
The view was beautiful -marina right in front of hotel. Room was moldy, smelly, single pane glass , so I was up most of night because of noise outside. Would not stay again -self parking was also $36/night
It'a all about the location. We could see and hear the fireworks from Sea World every night. We borrowed boogie boards and an umbrella so we could enjoy a day at the beach with comfort. We selected a room with a view. What we got was a view of trash bins. They charge a $19 resort fee per day, and you also have to pay $27/day to park in their lots. They have LOTS of "extra" fees that I was not aware of. Their bed was no better than a Comfort Inn, and at the Comfort Inn they definitely have better pillows. I expected more and received a lot less.
Location Room was dirty esp. the bathroom. Was given a room in the 2nd floor above the lobby. Our friends who declined this floor and got a room in the high rise building had much better rooms.
the room was not well maintained the tub has some kind of paint over it and there was a massive chip out of it. I complained to the front desk, who would not let me speak to a manager. Therefore nothing was done to improve my situation and I have little faith that the overall issue of poor maintenance was addressed. this was in the "suites" section. I actually wanted to be in the tower and they moved us to these and said there were no rooms in the tower. So be sure to emphasize what room type you want.
Onsite restaurant was not that good, food and service
Hotel was clean, pool area was nice, short drive to tourist areas like Coronado, downtown San Diego, San Diego zoo and Balboa park Must drive to closest pharmacy if you forget to pack something. It wasn't far but I wish there were a CVS in walking distance
Beautiful and well maintained. Movie at the pool was very loud and we could hear it over our own TV. Waiter at Firefly restaurant had a bad attitude.
I really was completely surprised by how the views were in the bay. It was totally amazing and enjoyed all the pictures I was able to take with the wedding party. I requested clean sheets and a king size bed which was accommodated for with no issues. The Firefly restaurant staff was really nice and always willing to converse. I arrived at about 2pm, already paid for and pre check online services. Stated my room wouldn't be ready until after 4 pm. My primary preference was a view of the harbor or the bay. I requested the room 4 months in advance. After the wedding/reception was over, I still didn't receive a phone call or email that my room was available. They also surprised me with another $20 for parking, would've been nice to know since I was renting a car and paying for that as well.
Beautiful grounds Friendly staff Small closet Need more towel racks or hooks
Grounds were nice Poorly managed, no hot water, did not clean rooms daily
I loved the rooms!! They were nice and clean! (cleaning staff was very friendly) and I love the tropical feel to the hotel especially all the plant life around the property and on the patio areas!! Hung out there a lot!! Also loved all the pools!! my kids loved that!!! I thought the hotel staff was a bit unknowledgeable especially up at the front desk!!!! Parking was ok during the day but once you left in the evening your spot was gone!?!? Didn't care for the Firefly we went and ate at Buffalo Wild Wings near by! (Amazingly cold beer!)
The main good thing about the hotel is location. Close to highways and pretty easy to get to other popular areas nearby. If you're not planning on staying in the room this place is fine, but I still think it's a bit pricier than necessary. It's not really a hotel, rather than a motel. You pull up right to your room. The room was kind of dirty and had a musty smell. You are forced to pay to park your car overnight which is an extra $20 a day.
I loved the bed...it was very comfortable To many people around our room smoking
Great location, went for a wedding Basically a glorified motel paid way to much for what we got!
The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We had a room upgrade to a room with a view of the pool in the 100 building which was perfect for us. The restaurant firefly was great... excellent dinner our first night there.
The location was great and easy to get to attractions and the beach from. Liked the Blue Pearl Restaurant for breakfast - fast service and a lot of food for the money. Wished it was open for dinner. After our experience at the Firefly, we had to change and get in the car and drive to a place to eat at night. It would have been nice to eat at the hotel. Did not like the food at the Firefly restaurant. I would help if they had a better selection - especially one any aged kid would like. Spoke with others staying there and their experience was the same, couldn't find anything on the menu to order for the family, and when they did order - they were out of half of it! No bread, etc. Once you left your parking spot in the evening - you couldn't find one when you got back from dinner. They definitely need to have more parking!
It was so very close to our destination We saw roaches in the restroom and the kitchenette...
We loved the pools and the views of Fiesta island! We loved how quiet the resort was the live ducks in the pool areas were so awesome and the shower head was amazing The elevator in village grande was very loud it was all we heard our whole stay even over the tv! The coffee in the rooms might as well be hot water it was not good!
Loved everything about our exoerience The pool could have been a little cleaner
The pool and hot tub were great fun for the kids. Nice view, clean, not crowded! The room was spacious and the grounds were peaceful. We waited almost an hour to get our dinner, which for kids is not a good thing. But it was apparently a busy night with a large party in the restaurant, and the food was delicious, and the hostess apologized profusely. So all in all, not so bad.
Waterfront activity options Parking was not convenient - getting in and out through the gates was annoying. Some of the common areas should be updated.
Staff was beyond attentive, when we first arrived the person at the front desk asked us if we were there top celebrate. I said yes for our anniversary, from there everything was so amazing. They gave us a complimentary upgrade to a bay view room, the morning staff sent us roses, teddy bears, robes, sandals and two cards saying happy anniversary. I've never felt this special in any hotel. Definitely will come back! !! Parking was an issue but manageable.
The staff friendly and polite, responsive there was signage at the entry that the resort is celebrating 50 years. It looks every bit like that. The carpets were in bad shape, there was a moldy musty stench in all rooms that was very hard to adjust to. There were moths in the room which is something I haven't seen very often in any hotel. No fan in the bathroom. Definitely the worst Hiton I've stayed at and not worth the money.
see my yelp review see my yelp review
For vacationers, not for business travel. Rooms are large and comfortable, though hotel is far from a "luxury" resort. Remote from downtown San Diego. Restaurant/bar closes early.
I found dirt and bugs (flies) in my food while eating by the pool area and the people at frescas said it was seasoning and the dirt was olive pulp. I know the difference and the was mad I was eating and feeding my one year old. I still had to pay for my food. It took the servers way to long to deliver. One of the people at the front desk never sent up the towels I asked for And the food was nothing I couldn't make. Not gonna lie I was WAY disappointed.
Staff was great. Very friendly and helpful Carpet looks old
Location on the beach is good, if that is what you want. A bit worn - noisy area, and much too expensive. you really pay a lot for that beachside location.
Location Always loud late into the night every time we stay here
Nice, updated, comfortable rooms with mini fridge and microwave. Great location on Pacific Beach. Great black-out curtains for sleep! The pool area is nice because you can stay there, sand free, and still enjoy seeing the ocean. Only complaint is that the "partial ocean view" really doesn't have an ocean view at all. I had to go out on my balcony...stand...and turn to the left to see ocean. If you're sitting you don't see anything. If you look straight ahead you have a lovely view of the public bathrooms.
Beachfront location is beautiful, staff is super friendly (front desk and cleaning), room was spotless, balcony view is great, area is safe. Everything you could ask for at a great price. Highly recommend! Parking was $20 a night (although cheaper than the nearby garage), younger teenagers were very loud in the halls and upstairs. All minimal compared to the positives of the hotel.
We came in about 12.00 am and they said our reserved room was already sold.They instantly upgraded our room...Loved being next to ocean...we had a great stay.. It would have been nice if the rooms where a little larger...also no light switch as you walk into room.
People were so friendly and helpful, great location, great room, restaurant so close, no need to drive just walk. Everything was so close to hotel there was no need for car. Parking in February was easy but come summer it is a nightmare.
Rooms are very clean, comfortable, very convenient to everything you need to enjoy and relax during your vacation None, I like everything about this hotel
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms and facilities were spotless. Bed was very comfortable. Our room fronted right on the boardwalk and beach. Fresh cookies and fruit available in lobby every afternoon. WiFi worked well and bathroom was nicely stocked. Small microwave, Keurig coffeemaker, and frig were appreciated. Pool was being worked - know it has to be done sometime.
The location is great, it is a beach front property. The staff from the cleaning crew to the front desk people are not friendly, they knock on your door at 9 to clean your room, you can only check in at or after 4. The beds are very uncomfortable and seems very old. There were cockroaches in the bathroom.
The ocean view.
Liked that it was so close to the ocean and beach... I thought it was very overpriced for that hotel...
location is good. sink is leaking, airconditioning is leaking making the front door of the room always flooded with water.some staff is not friendly, charged our credit card with someone else room...
The bed and pillows were nice. It was the worst experiance I have ever had. construction was going on in the room next to us, early in the morning. The staff did nothing about it. We were told that our room was newly remodeled and it was not completed. It had holes in the drywall, no T.P.holder, carpet coming loose from the wall. It was terrible.
They remade our bed and provided new towels when we were out during the day. Not very many choices for breakfast. I stayed there a few years ago and they had a variety of granola bars; that was not the case this time. Carpet was stained and we did not walk on it barefooted.
Clean, simple, spacious, everything worked, in the middle of all neighborhood so easy access to freeway to go in any direction to la Jolla or downtown and away from the backed up beach traffic And the other reviews about the staff was no lie! Excellent!!!
Was a block from the bay Staff had no idea of where anything was as simple as towels ... they offer a hottub bt yet do not have one.. accepted our reservation and then didn't have the room when we showed up they called it an upgrade to a semi finished suite no tv and regular pieces of wood for counter top completely unprofessional
simple clean rooms comfortable beds friendly staff
Good location Facilities need to be upgraded. In-wall A/C unit in a weird spot and not even sealed to the elements. Shower atrocious, no water pressure and very little hot water...only brief spurts of lukewarm water. This room looks like it was put together with on-sale items from a discount hardware store.
Extremely good value, very clean, good access to coast and city. Would stay there again next time.
It was conveniently located, had a nice atmoshere and a friendly staff. The price was also very economical. I even received a room with microwave and refrigerator. No, I liked everything about it.
I like the proximity to PB. Drunk people were having a heated argument at a late hour. Cleanliness of the room was ok, but liked that the tiled floor was clean. The access going southbound on Mission Bay Drive can be easily missed and confuse people not familiar with the area.
