“Really lovely Resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Our first part of our honeymoon was to the Bahia Resort. We had a fantastic time. Quick check in on arrival and very helpfull staff. No problems with the check. Got to our room on ground level, facing the tropical gardens. Lovely view and very well kept clean area. The room was spotless and not a complaint to be made. Rooms cleaned everyday with fresh towels. On the other side of the premises was the beach view. Seen as it was a 2 second walk away from our room, we were happy with our view. The beach was so clean and really private. Lovely beach walk around the whole resort. The Bahia Belle was great and free (as we were staying in the hotel). It brought us accross to the sister hotel and we stayed a while and checked out Pacific Beach area. Plenty of shops and restuarants and clubs. Had a few drinks in the sister hotel(which was a lovely hotel) got the last boat back to bahia and there was a dj on board which was great fun. Lovely resturant in the bahia. Breakfast was great. Buffet or menu. Food was yummy and plenty of it. not expensive at all.
Romantic and family resort. Shops close by and amusement park. Mission beach a walk away. Beautiful in the early morning. Real relaxing scene!
Sea World a taxi ride away. Amazing. A must do in San Diego!!!
Bus stop right outside the Bahia. All day pass for 7dollars. Take the bus to the tram station and get the tram into town Gaslamp District. We watched a baseball game while we were there. Brilliant to see and fun. Got cheap tickets! Lovely resturants and bars in the gaslamp area. Fun night out. Caught the tram back to our area and bus back to the bahia. Not complicated at all. Easy to find our way!!

Overall, not complaints of the Bahia and staff were great and helpfull. Plenty of activities to do at the hotel and would recommend for romantic or family. Would defo visit Bahia again!! :)

I really shouldn't say anything, reservations will be more difficult in the future. We stayed in a ground level beach front unit. After a romantic cruise on the Bahia Bell we retired to our patio just off the beach and shared a bottle of wine before taking a midnight walk on the beach. Just like the movies

Room Tip: Beach front, ground floor

We had 3 fun-filled and relaxing days at the Bahia. The grounds are tropical and serene and the million dollar view of the bay from our balcony was breathtaking. We enjoyed sipping coffee every morning from that balcony and watching the boats and seagulls go by. Our room was A+ with full kitchen, living room area and a king size bed. Pillows and mattress were so comfortable we wanted to take them home! Very clean and cozy. Staff is wonderful! I must give credit to the very nice man at the front desk "Scott Hartman". He made sure our stay got off on the right foot. Very professional and caring person. He will do his best to take care of you. We had a room next to a large family and since it was just my husband and myself, we asked for a bit more privacy. We were extremely pleased with his help.:o) :o) Close to all...shops, restaurants, beach, bay, amusement park, etc. They also have a private beach with cabanas, bike rentals, and watercraft of all kind to rent. We will definitely return here! Thanks again Scott Hartman, you ROCK!

Room Tip: Tell staff if you are a couple seeking quiet or a family seeking fun. They will do there best to acc...

The Bahia is the best location if you want to experience Mission Beach and Mission Bay. Close to everything! Such a delightful property! The lush gardens/landscaping is such a treat for us desert dwellers.

We spent over a week at the Bahia and loved every day/night! We have a 7 year old son and this hotel is pefect for families. We used and enjoyed the pool/hot tub/arcade area everyday. Service in pool area is friendly and fun. We had a garden view room and enjoyed our coffee in the provided lounge chairs every morning viewing the ducks in the stream. The whole hotel has gorgeous grounds for picture taking to. We walked to Mission beach daily and enjoyed the atmosphere around that area. The bay area at the Bahia is great to. Pefect for laying on a padded lounge chair and reading or enjoying many activites they offer for rentals. We tried restaurant for dinner and breakfast and had excellent food and service with both meals. Can't WAIT for our next trip to the Bahia!

We spent four days at the Bahia and loved it! Our patio opened onto the private beach so I had a water view whenever I wanted (I'm from the desert), it was close to all the amenities, and the staff was wonderful! I am slightly handicapped so accessibility was important, and I only wish they had had higher toilets :-)! The rooms are old, but clean and comfortable. This is a terrific place for kids -- I loved watching them on the paddle boards. Kayaks and bicycles are also available for rent. We had breakfast in the dining room and from room service and it was always excellent. Unfortunately we were other places for dinner.

Room Tip: Definitely recommend the rooms on the private beach.
