Everything met expectations but the Parking fee is a rip off. The pool area was very nice and the beach is nice for kids but not the best looking water for swimming. Drinks were a bit pricy for size and quality. Breakfast was reasonable and very good when ordered of menu. I thought the all you can eat was a... More

Stayed here for the first time in July 2013. We had such a great time with our three kids (at the time they were 9,7, and 5) that we made plans to go back last summer but sons baseball schedule forced us to cancel. We had a beautiful villa room and I would definitely choose one of those over a... More

We recently stayed for 4 nights with our 8 month old. Hotel is as expected in the 5* category. Rooms well kept, awesome pool area, restaurants & food was good. The staff was very helpful & assisted us always. Our room was ready in the morning itself which was very handy given we had our daughter with us. Hannah on... More

I hate to write this review as the location of this property is great however I believe the $25 Resort fee on top of the $35 parking fee is a bit much. We checked in at 2:30 and were told our room would be ready in 30 minutes, a resort I get it. We checked back with the front desk... More

Dear Dennis, It is disheartening to hear and we apologize that the high quality of service our Resort is so well known for was a disappointment for you. I can assure you this is not a fair representation our guests have come to expect. Though we do our best to accommodate all special room requests, with Honors members given top... More

We picked this hotel because it's right in front of mission bay. Based on the reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to book the Bayview Villa with 2 queen beds since we have 2 young children. We checked in on Sunday around 5pm and they gave us room# 137 which is right next to the entrance and ice machine. I was... More

I checked in on Saturday, March 21. First off the parking is $35/per night.....for what??? The parking is not covered or assigned. It was crowded and had several 15 minute parking spaces like really? I could see if this was downtown, but it's not and parking should be minimal or free....if not, please assign my parking next to my room... More

Hotel was what I thought it would be however not what I hoped for. Bay was ok at best but the island across the water with campers on it, not a good view. Food in the hotel was good however $150 for two people without drink a little much. Thee only thing that saves the hotel was they extra ordinary... More

Wish my family and I could have stayed longer. We tried to make reservations to join up with other friends, but we waited too late to make reservations. We joined them at the resort for the day and stayed for dinner and drinks. Wow! What a great place and much bigger than it looks on the website.

I found the hotel very comfortable. Parking is expensive. Don't pay it as there is public parking just outside the resort. In theory you might get a ticket between 2 and 4 am. I took a chance and parked there anyway and didn't get a ticket or a warning. The breakfast was excellent but I am not sure it is... More
