My daughter came home for a little break from college and I decided to get her away for a couple days in San Diego for some R & R. I booked a bayfront suite. I really don't have anything negative to say about our suite, except that after our stay, I really felt that for what we paid for the room, it was not worth the money spent. That said, it was clean, albeit a bit "cold" with the tile floors, etc. I see the reasoning behind this, being that the room sits directly across from the water and the sand. They have been updated, but mostly it seems with a thick coating of paint over the already existed and dinged up walls. After we walked around the grounds a bit, we made our way over to the other side where we watched the sunset and I realized that for $500+ bucks a night, we should have had a room on THAT side of the bay. I don't know what those rooms are called but our rooms were on the quieter side, but with very little view of anything and definitely no sunset. I was disappointed in our bayside room after watching the sun set on the other side. So I would check to see if you do book a bay side room that you get one where you can sit outside and watch the sun set.
They had nice firepits on the sand and my daughter and I did make a nice fire out there. That was VERY neat. But don't buy your firewood at the hotel store, it's $14.95 a small bundle. A cute little "smores" package will set you back $25 (probably enough to make 6 smores.) Drive down the road less than a mile or two and go to Vons, pick up a few bundles of firewood for about $5 each, a couple firestarter logs, some graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate and you'll have everything you need for a perfect fire pit evening.
Would I stay here again? Yes, I think I would. The staff were friendly, the grounds were really quite nice to walk around in, I found them prettier at night with the lights they have sprinkled in the trees, etc. I would like to bring my family back for another stay, however, I'm not sure I'd fork over the extra money for the particular bayside room we had this weekend. This could be a VERY neat resort...it needs a bit of updating to be able to justify the costs of their rooms. But otherwise, I was not terribly displeased.
