We stayed in the storied building adjacent to the lobby over Labor Day weekend. At check in we were advised of the weddings going on in the meeting rooms on the top floor and that music was allowed to play until midnight. After one night my mother-in-law was not happy with the sound of the bass vibrating through her room....

Thank you for taking the time to review the Bahia Resort Hotel. We enjoyed reading your review and really like the title you penned, “Something for Everyone.” We understand that some people will find the noise from weddings and parties at the Mission Bay Ballroom too intrusive, and we are very proud of the way our staff handled the situation,...

There were many things I liked and did not like about this place. Stayed here for 6 days with my wife and kids. Found a "deal" on Groupon which gave us free breakfast buffet for 2 but still think I might have over paid for the stay. Location was great. It's a 5-7 minute drive to Seaworld. The beaches were...

Attended this event with my wife last week, and had a great time! Prime rib and clambake buffet, salads, desserts, and libations -- all wonderful! Entertainment was provided by a local San Diego area band, The Mardels, who played music from not only the 60's (with an Annette Funicello/Frankie Avalon movie playing in the background), but other current pop tunes...

The room we were first assigned to (Bay View) was small and had view of the parking lot ($160/night +tax and fees). We were so disappointed so called front desk and asked for a better room. They graciously accommodated us and we received a Bay Front room with access to the beach. Much, much better. If I returned to this...

For $400 + a night I would expect a Resort that not only is kept up but also that is run with guest comfort in mind. The resort seems to condone allowing pot smoking by staff, 8 people packed into a double occupancy room in order to save money and unbelievably loud guests at all hours of the night. The...

Featuring spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and lush tropical gardens as well as friendly service and comfortable accommodations, Bahia Resort Hotel is the ideal destination for an authentic Southern California beach getaway. Impressive accommodations are key at the Bahia; guests may choose between our deluxe studios and suites, each with its own balcony or patio and a full range of amenities. Further room options include kitchenettes, direct access to the beach and views of the sparkling bay and our expansive tropical gardens. At Bahia Resort Hotel we ensure you receive all the comforts and amenities needed to enjoy your vacation. Staying at the Bahia grants guests easy access to an array of dining options, including our signature restaurant Cafe Bahia, which offer international cuisine served amid this indoor-outdoor tropical paradise.

Beyond the Bahia, seemingly countless options offering an array of culinary experiences are just minutes away. For those seeking to spend their vacation on the water, Bahia Resort Hotel boasts an assortment of options. Headlining these choices is the Bahia Belle, an 1860s-era sternwheeler that tours guests around the bay nightly. Step back in time and enjoy a colorful sunset and views of the bay’s playful seals from the top deck, then prepare to kick up your heels as the vessel becomes a vibrant nightlife destination with live entertainment and a full-service bar. Additional nearby water activities include sailing, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, surfing and more though nobody will blame you for simply relaxing on our soft sand beaches or at our sparkling pool. Back on land, the Bahia boasts a fitness center, kids’ arcade, tennis courts and bicycle and Segway rentals. Within walking distance guests can also explore Belmont Park, an oceanfront amusement park featuring the Great Dipper, a wooden roller coaster and designated historic landmark built in 1925. Take in the picturesque views of the Pacific Ocean during a leisurely stroll on the boardwalk, go rock climbing, or play miniature golf in this popular beachfront locale. Traveling further afield is a breeze, as the Bahia’s location is ideal for those seeking to experience San Diego’s major attractions. The Bahia Resort Hotel is located directly across from SeaWorld and is within 10 miles from the world famous San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Downtown’s Gaslamp District and the San Diego International Airport.
