Both rooms were spacious and quiet, and each had a flat screen TV and an AC unit. There was a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker in the wet bar area of the living room. We ate all...

We rented the Del Mar Room for the event itself, and rented several guest rooms of various types for family who came to town. The catering staff and...

The Bahia is right on the water - with water all around the hotel. The hotel is a short walk (about 5 minutes at most) to Mission Beach. You may want to avoid the crowds at Mission beach. When I was there it felt like all of San Diego had come to the same beach. The room I had was...

Beyond the Bahia, seemingly countless options offering an array of culinary experiences are just minutes away. For those seeking to spend their vacation on the water, Bahia Resort Hotel boasts an assortment of options. Headlining these choices is the Bahia Belle, an 1860s-era sternwheeler that tours guests around the bay nightly. Step back in time and enjoy a colorful sunset and views of the bay’s playful seals from the top deck, then prepare to kick up your heels as the vessel becomes a vibrant nightlife destination with live entertainment and a full-service bar. Additional nearby water activities include sailing, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, surfing and more though nobody will blame you for simply relaxing on our soft sand beaches or at our sparkling pool.
