I went to Paradise Point to relax and get away from Chicago. I am an adult over 50 yrs old and came alone. I wanted a quiet place, where I could walk safely and enjoy to view of the bay or the beautiful landscaping. If I had been looking for night time entertainment I would have been disappointed, but I went for this atmosphere purposely.
I also experienced some difficulty at check-in with the desk staff and the availability of the room. Originally after check in, I was disappointed in the room, this was due to the low light at 5pm which did not do the room any favors and my tired state. As the next day arrived the shabby chic room was exactly what I had expected. I did think the drapes could have better covered the windows but that is all. All rooms are bungalow-like and have a lanai looking out on gardens or lagoons or the mission bay beach.
The evening I arrived I ate at Baleen, the chilean sea bass was excellent. On the point near Baleen there was a wedding being performed which could be seen from their patio area. What a sweet way to start a vacation.
I talked to a few "locals", Paradise Point is a destination for California, Arizona and Nevada locals for weekend retreats. They arrive in their SUVs along with b-b-ques to party the weekend at the beach. One family had been coming to this area for at least two generations for weekend get-aways. They conveyed that the prices can vary widely for the accomodations and recommended shopping around for the best price.
There are three very clean pools: one communal pool with 3 fantasic fountains (this one is very shallow), a childrens pool and an adult only pool. There is a secluded bar near the bigger pool. There is mini golf and multiple person bikes to be rented.
The spa staff is knowledgeable and their offerings are wonderful. The pricing was about what I would pay in an upscale salon in Chicago, their spa was better than any of those Chicago spas.
The lagoons have nice outcroppings with comfortable patio furniture which makes a great place for morning coffee and reading the paper.
The concierge staff was extremely helpful at all times and have discounted tickets to some local events as well as specialty prices with taxi firms. The Old Town Trolley tour picks up on the property as well as a bus tour to Mexico.
I had a wonderfully restful visit to Paradise Point and would love to go back again sometime in the future.
