We stayed here for three nights in order to be near the ocean yet close enough to Balboa Park and the San Diego Safari Park. The grounds are green and well maintained, There were two rescue seals in the pool area by the lobby. They seemed well cared for, being that they were both blind. Our reception and check out...

I love the Bahia! The hotel is so quaint and truly the best place to take in San Diego. The staff, especially Kyle and Kevin from room reservations and front desk were just the best ever! If you want a gorgeous getaway and a place to feel like a VIP, then the Bahia is the place to be!

Booked this room for a last minute girls trip and this hotel is great for the price. Rooms are very much dated but clean enough. We had an issue where they were constructing a outdoor tent for what I assumed was a wedding right outside our room so drilling was VERY loud. Front desk was able to give us a...

We booked three rooms at a great price. Buffet breakfast was included, the food was delicious and the staff very attentive. We also were each given a complimentary appetizer with our dinners. We enjoyed a free upgrade to a beautiful Oceanside suite. We couldn't have asked for more. They offer a complimentary boat ride, but not in December. The grounds...

I stayed here with a friend for three nights following a cruise that ended in San Diego. Bahia is clean and the beds are comfortable. Our room backed up to the bay and the access road which is quiet and infrequently used. I'd recommend one of these rooms. They have a tropical garden and a seal pond (two rescue seals)....

Thank you for your great review William. The Tangier Bar lets you relax al fresco on the patio or just as comfortably inside while you enjoy your favorite beverages made to order, delicious appetizers and a refreshing light dining menu. For milder recreational fare, head to Mission Bay Park’s bike and walk paths, basketball courts, and playgrounds for children. It’s...

Started great when we got here with a free upgrade! But even without that, it is a beautiful, clean resort with a wonderful location!

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.

Traveling further afield is a breeze, as the Bahia’s location is ideal for those seeking to experience San Diego’s major attractions.
