Good Location for a short stay in the city. Close to the airport and not too far away from downtown San Diego.

We enjoyed this aquarium. One of the best we have visited to date. The shows were fantastic and the children enjoyed them thoroughly. Lots of walking, wear comfortable shoes. Plan when you are going to do the shows. You may take water into the park but not food. We missed the "lunch time rush" by eating at midday. Hydrate!

First let me say that the staff were very nice at all times - they just were not prepared to handle our complaints satisfactorily. We had booked one double queen room for ourselves and two granddaughters.... More
