I have just returned home from an incredible two night stay on a boat called the Pura Vida. We just wanted to get away for a couple of nights, somewhere peaceful. As we were looking at hotels in San Diego, Dockside Yacht Lodging popped up and we immediately fell in love with the idea of staying on a boat. We couldn't have made a better choice. Wow! We were met at the lobby of the Best Western Hotel since, the boat is docked in the hotel marina. We were escorted through the facilities and they are beautiful with great warm pools, Jacuzzis, a great restaurant ( great food at great prices) fitness center, and finally a beautiful boat that was more than what we had imagined exceptionally clean, peaceful, inspiring, refreshing, romantic and fun. My husband even got excited when he saw a dolphin swimming near the boat and not too long after a huge fat seal looking for some fish. It was altogether the best experience I have had in many years, so unique. Everything about it was great, the boat, people, nature, and the most comfortable bed in the world. We had it all, wine and cheese on the back deck, sunbathing on the front, reading on the top deck, 300 channels of television and room service for breakfast. I was sad to leave but my husband has already booked our next visit to the boat this summer. Thank you Dockside for this great experience.
