Very overpriced for a very average hotel that is more inline with clamping than a 5 star hotel! $600+ for one night in a a very average, dark, dated and basic room that backed on to the main road, $38 extra for parking even when your car is parked in a bay allocated to the room, lack of beds at the pool means we couldn’t get one on either day, check in at 4pm and check out at 11am is a joke at this price, beach has no beds or shades and your not allowed to take hotel pool towels to the beach, food at one do the 2 restaurants was average and breakfast took an hour and they brought cereal with no milk so had to wait an extra 10 mins for milk and then 10 mins to get the check!? It’s a beautiful location but I wouldn’t stay here again unless I was paying under $200 a night as that’s all it’s worth! Much better hotels and resorts in the San Diego so I’d avoid this one!

Stayed here previously and had a great experience - once with work, once with my immediate family. Here are the good aspects: Island location is fun and beautiful, close to sea world, there are a lot of interesting things for kids - duck feeding, climbing tower, collecting shells on beach, bike rentals, multiple pools. The staff is nice and courteous. Rooms are bright, but not spotless. I take some disinfecting wipes (b/c of COVID), and I can definitely wipe off stains from high contact areas (doors). However, I recently stayed over July 4th weekend and had a very disappointing experience. Brought my extended family for our first "COVID vaccination vacation". We reserved 4 rooms total. 2 of our rooms were under a tree where the ground was completely covered in bird droppings. There was a canopy over my space, but my cousin's new car was painted white with poop - and had an egg drop on the hood (see pic). I complained to front desk and they offered to move rooms, BUT I would have to wait a day AND it would be a downgraded room! They did pay for a carwash for my cousin and refunded parking fees for 2 of our cars, but it was a massive inconvenience and disgusting to be walking in that much poop every time we drove somewhere. There were also families next to us (who apparently rented out the rest of the row of rooms), who decided to bring their own grill and cook up kebabs for everyone in their large party and smoke hooka. The food and hooka created a lot of smoke for our area - we had to walk through it going to and from our room. Front desk notified me that grilling was allowed, but hooka was not. It was a very unbecoming experience for Paradise Point. My door locks also broke during our stay - had to visit the front desk 3 times before maintenance came and fixed it. My family was pretty disappointed. They told me their rooms were not cleaned well when they arrived - stains in bathrooms. There was also another fallen bird egg in front of our room and a decomposing bird in front of our cars that was not removed for our entire length of stay. There is only one restaurant that operates all week. The other one only serves on the weekend - so we had to go out for most of our meals. I used to recommend this place to both family and friends. I will no longer be doing so. I am disappointed because it was one of my favorite places to stay in the SD area.

5 star prices for a 3 star experience. I’m sure it was once a great resort, but it’s well past its prime. The rooms are average, the amenities are average and the infrastructure is well-worn. We expected some post-COVID hiccups, but even with that factored in, we felt the service wasn’t up to par. There are better places to spend your money.

We came here for a family birthday and were sad to find it is far from luxurious. The quality and care alone does not justify the high price tag. Our room had no toiletries, peeling paint and a broken bed frame upon arrival. Repeated calls to the front desk were never answered. Upon speaking to the front desk in person, and asking for a manager, we were met with "we are short staffed due to Covid." This also seems to be a party location and not solely for hotel guests. The neighboring room had parties every night with around 20 people in a 4 person room, many we found to not be staying at the hotel. They spilled over onto our patio and used our chairs. We spoke with the neighbors several times before calling the front desk. Despite saying they would send staff over, no one ever arrived. Our other family members had similar issues with their neighbors. The only bright light was our server at the restaurant. We decided to contact management after we came home and we have still not gotten any resolution, only excuses and push back. What a disappointing stay and very stressful trip. Please do not waste your money.

I’m a review customer and this resort had high scores/reviews but also some minimal negatives that I was a little concerned about. We’re on the last day of our 1st summer trip post-Covid and it was amazing!! I didn’t mind the minimal housekeeping services because they’re very prompt in bringing you anything you need. The resort app is a must!!The grounds were beautiful and you can see their staff pays attention to detail! We loved Rich and can tell he Loved his job!!
