I was here at the Bahia for a teachers' conference. The staff was professional, efficient and service oriented. Check in and out was smooth considering the number of people attending this conference. My room was a suite that reminded me of an apartment. All it needed was a stove. However, I had two large screen TV's. I enjoyed the resort... More

Hotel was nice, a little dated but clean. The location is excellent, with a private beach right on Mission Bay. Restaurant was underwhelming. Service was poor. Server didn't know how several dishes were prepared, Had to send back the Fish and Chips because the fish was raw. Mac with Rock shrimp was watery and bland.

This hotel has an old world charm set in a unique location, occupying a peaceful beach and marina peninsula just 2 blocks from the Pacific Ocean and expansive beach. There's even a seal sanctuary, and beautiful fountains, which do not run due to drought conditions in CA. Hints of Spanish style architecture around the property clash with the 1970s "cabana"...

Thank you for your review. We apologize you experienced loud guests. We sit on 14 acres and with most of the resort only one or two stories we do not often hear of this situation. Our security team continuously roams the property to try to prevent any beach parties or loud groups from disturbing other guest but from your review... More

Upon arriving we were greeted by Mike at the front desk. Not only was he helpful with all our needs but because the hotel wasn't crowded and our family trip didn't start off the way we had planned he upgraded us to these remodeled suites on the beach. WOW!!!!! The rooms were amazing and beyond. We could walk out our... More

Had an awesome time here considering the budget, wasn't expecting much so we were pleasantly surprised! So much to do and not far from most things to do. Rooms were spacious and clean, great view and surroundings. Was only there for 1 night but would have loved to stay another day. Recommend a bar called 'The Draft' which is a... More

Due to an emergency trip to the hospital, i had to cancel my reservation at the last minute. The front desk was so kind and helpful in rescheduling my stay, i decided to recuperate there. Upon checking in at a later date, i was sent a card from the front desk signed by the employees wishing along with a platter... More

My husband & I were at the Bahia for a conference (NBT). The dates of our stay were from 11/4 thru 11/16. The WHOLE stay was EXCELLENT!!!! We were particulaly pleased since we were to check out on 11/11(we had reservations in another part of California), but the reservations were a total disaster and the Bahia (Joseph) was able to...

We loved this hotel. No charge for internet or parking, it’s in a great location – I think everything we went to was 15 minutes away. Be sure to go watch Gracie eat at 9 or 2:30, she’s so cute and I had so much fun watching her swim around. I love that the hotel has given her a place... More

We stayed 3 nights in October. We weren't expecting the rooms to be in low level blocks like a motel, so it was disappointing. The grounds were well kept and the rooms were huge, but quite old fashioned. Make sure you request a bay facing apartment, they looked nicer. Good location for sea world but we had quite a drive...

We used a "third party company" to book our stay, and upon check in I was told that we would have to change rooms after the first night of our three night stay if we wanted a king size bed. After talking to the very nice girl at the front desk Arielle she found us a terrific room with a... More
