This hotel is perfectly located within a 5 minute walk of Mission Beach and Belmont Park. So nice to step out onto the balcony each night and feel the ocean breeze. We (myself and 3 teenage kids) enjoyed having 2 beds and a pull-out couch as well as a kitchenette. We brought beverages and snacks with us to save money.... More

We paid 293 a night for a 2 queen bedroom Bay View Room 192. Bay view looked directly at a bath house with many homeless people camping in tents at our back door. THe beds were lumpy and uncomfortable. Hot tub was luke warm and never hot. The bar at pool was never open. Restaurant served dirty glasses of water... More

All went well with the exception of the first lunch. The issue was resolved by pre-ordering the following days. The staff was very responsive and available. I would like to give special thanks to the Marina Staff as well as Alexa, the most wonderful waitress at the Tangiers. She put up with my clients and took excellent care them. Best... More

Accommodations are not the most luxurious but what a great place overall. So much to do and see within walking distance. VERY kid friendly and safe. Left our bikes unlocked all weekend. Staff was great and very accommodating with all requests that we had. Suite was very quiet which was surprising with as many kids in staying our immediate vicinity.... More

As the coordinator of a state conference for educational professionals in April of 2014, I was looking for someplace special to hold our event. It needed to be a place that would really showcase the So. Cal feeling and offer a little something for all of our members and their families. I found the perfect setting at the Bahia! Director...

This was about our 6th time to stay at the Bahia. It is located on the bay and a 2 minute walk to the ocean beaches (would be an even faster walk if no traffic light to wait on for crossing the one street inbetween). There is a variety of room types - we prefer a larger unit with kitchen... More

The view is awsome. The staff is very nice. The facility and all the amenities were fabulous. The location was ideal for us. It is litterly 5 minutes from Sea World and walking distance from the beach at Mission Park. The private beach was very relaxing. My 10 year old loved the boat ride on the Bahia Belle. His favorite... More

We love this hotel. The kids love watching Sea Worlds fireworks from the room. The rooms are quite, clean and updated. It's on the water and there are a ton of activities close by. The pool area and restaurant is wonderful too.
