My wife and I were planning our 10 year anniversary, and we wanted to go to San Diego. Our honeymoon was at a B&B, so it seemed natural to go with tradition. Our on-line search provided us with a number of possibilities. But, unfortunately, we had to mix business with pleasure. And fortunately, the El Primero Boutique Bed & Breakfast was just in the right spot!
My wife was quite pleased with the accommodations. Our room was small but comfortable. And most of all… clean!! We both have allergies, so traveling can be a problem. But, the rooms were spotless. What a relief.
The El Primero is family owned, and the owner, Pie, was more than good to us. He helped us arrange our activities, find local highlights, provided directions, etc., etc. He told us about the busses, and were to go. He showed us maps for the trains. He double checked our route to the airport. Actually, we left our vacation having felt we had met a new friend. And I think that is the key attribute to El Primero’s obvious success.
The other patrons we spoke with had stayed there many times. Some were on vacation, and some were on business. It was clear enough why: sufficient access to restaurants, 10 minutes from San Diego yet not in down town San Diego, a great breakfast that was hassle free, and good service. As for local restaurants, they were good too: Thai, Sushi, Hawaiian, barbeque, Mexican, etc. We would definitely recommend the El Primero to our friends.
