Our group absolutely enjoyed their stay at the Bahia Hotel in San Diego! Our experience in May of 2014 was fabulous! The turnout was so great, that we have already been asked to go back for future trainings/conferences! At first when we were in the process of picking a location in San Diego, some of our members were hesitant in... More

After visiting several venues for our wedding/reception we visited the Bahia and were toured by Kelly Instone who was very welcoming and answered all of our questions. She had all of the details in hand including the time of the sunset on the day of our wedding (since we were having a beach wedding and wanted idea light for pictures).... More

Customer service was the best. Katie Swan at the front desk took care of us...told us best places to eat, what to do in evening etc. The hotel room was beautiful and the views from inside the resort are tremendous. Can't go wrong staying here. Oh, we also got a free boat ride across the bay complimentary with the room... More

We were married at the Bahia last September (2013), our experience was amazing. Beth was such a joy to work with! The entire planning process was stress free and totally enjoyable. Our wedding day was a dream come true. Everything went according to plan! A year later, our guests are still saying our wedding was the most fun, beautiful wedding... More

We spent three nights at the hotel. The whole check-in experience was a disorganized mess, which didn't leave a good first impression. The resort seems to be painfully understaffed. The room was OK, but nothing special. It could use a nice refresh. There is lots to do on the grounds from the swimming pool and beach to free tennis and... More

We stayed 4 nights at the Bahia. When we checked in I was informed that our bayside room was located on the second floor and did not have direct beach/bay access. This was not acceptable to me. The hotel website does not stipulate whether your room will be on the first or second floor so this is a little deceptive.... More

I recently stayed at the Bahia for a long weekend with a few girlfriends. The experience from checking in at the front desk to the entire stay was awesome!! By the way, Mike C at the front desk was our first interaction and he made us feel so at home. The Bahia ia a beautiful resort! We had a room... More

The price is way overrated to stay in a dump overlooking a bay that is filled with loud obnoxious locals out late bar b queuing and cursing . So disappointed. Do not waste money in mission bay . Go to la jolla or coronado

I went here the other night for a nice dinner with a friend. Upon arrival we were greeted promptly and seated immediately on the gorgeous outside patio. I server Zoltar (spelling sorry!) walked over and took our drink order quickly and courteously. We both asked for waters and wine, the wine was delicious. I asked our server for his favorite... More

Stayed at the Bahia for 4 nights in August. The resort is rather old and dated, in need of updating. The restaurants are nice and child friendly, reasonably priced, good food. Took the cruise on the complementary paddle steamer and really enjoyed it. Was pretty disappointed to get a second floor apartment when I had requested a ground floor when... More
