We had such a fantastic experience at The Bahia, everyone we worked with was so professional and accommodating, the outside vendors they suggested were EXCELLENT. We worked with Cheryl Smith, Macarena Carballo and Jayna Prest through The Bahia and they made our wedding day completely seamless and perfect. All the guests we talked to said this was the best wedding... More

Dinning outdoors, right on the water with our toes in the sand and watching the sunset, listening to a rocking live band and AMAZING food!!! We left so full and happy :) The entire staff was welcoming and professional. If a glass or plate was empty,... More

First time in California and it couldn't have started in a better way. The staff was great and very friendly. The hotel was beautiful and had lots to do there. It was also in a great location. Would definitely stay there again.

The hotel property is quite big with rooms of all types. We were upgraded to a suite, which was literally the size of an apartment. It was spotless with housekeeping coming even late in the day. Front desk staff was very friendly, welcoming and efficient. Pool area was beautiful. It's within walking distance (about four blocks) from Mission Beach! We... More

We had the most AMAZING wedding weekend in August on the William D. Evans Sternwheeler. The entire staff was amazing from front desk to boat staff. Jayna, our event coordinator, was so detailed throughout the process and executed flawlessly. All my friends and family were so impressed with the food, drinks and staff during the wedding and Cheryl the Banquet... More

Lovely resort in a good location for walking to nearby shops. It was busy however we didn't have a problem finding room by the pool or on the resort beach. The hotel runs free paddle boat trips for guests around the bay which was nice, and the kids loved to visit the rescued seals on the site! Our only disappointment... More

The location of this hotel is great, the deluxe bayfront rooms are awesome & right on the beach with a small patio. However, the room was not very clean & the floors were dirty and sticky. We had to call 2 days in a row after 4PM to have the room cleaned up ( fresh towels, morning coffee pot &... More

Spent four nights at the Bahia in August for the second year in a row, and it continued to exceed our expectations. Our well-equipped king-bed room opened onto a private beach, and was spotlessly maintained every day. The amenities were excellent; we especially enjoyed the evening bay cruise, and the location enabled us to enjoy the restaurants on Mission Bay... More

We are truly grateful you took the time to write such a positive review of our hotel! Our bay front rooms are extremely popular because they offer instant access to the serene waters of Mission Bay. The Bahia Belle, our stern-wheeler, also docks in the marina when it isn’t ferrying our guests around the bay. I’m so pleased to hear... More
