Stayed here partially for a conference and partially for an engagement "honeymoon". This 1962 resort suffered under previous management and the current management is trying to bring it back up to snuff. Stay in the "old" part-south end (See Socal45's review). The rooms are like vaults-never heard a sound from the two rooms on either side. Room decorations confusing-part Victorian, part Polynesian and part African-this obviously needs work or a new decorator. We had several electrical problems, which were fixed within an hour. Tons of pools, including an adults only one and lots of fire pits, both on the property and all around the beaches. Excellent base for exploring San Diego (right next to Sea World) or just "chilling". Friendly for all ages-lots of kids while we were there and it worked out fairly well.Obviously some progress made since brown01's review since the two restaurants we visited at the resort were fairly good. The breakfast restaurant by the marina had a nice, but limited selection (Eggs Benedict to die for), Service was good, but food a bit overpriced. Eat inside, as they play "eclectic" music on the deck and the ever-present pigeons will jump right up on your table to steal your food. The primary dinner restaurant, Baleen, has an incredibly inventive menu, great chef and very good service. Prices are commensurate with medium-to high-level restaurants in the city. To be balanced in this review, I have to report that my fiancee and I both got food poisoning from this restaurant last Friday-had the pork chops and the corn pudding side dish-suspect the corn. Management was horrified and gave us a discount and promised to give us the results of their investigation. Despite that, we still plan to return-again, the current management is in a "rebuild" mode. Staff, without exception, was courteous, helpful and friendly, not in that false, obsequious mode, but truly caring. The "Market", where you buy sundries and tourist stuff, was for once, not a total rip-off, but actually had some reasonable prices. Since this was the first time I had stayed in San Diego in 20 years, I cannot compare this place to any others in the area, but the grounds are gorgeous, the food is (for the most part) delicious and they have full amenities, including a spa and multiple watercraft options. Definitely worth a look, especially "off season.
