Palmy Paradise

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 3, 2007

If I were looking for a tranquil and romantic weekend getaway with my partner, this might not be my first pick. But I wanted to take my mama for a fun but relaxing overnight in San Diego for Mother's Day, and this top-end resort on a little isle of its own in the Mission Bay ended up being ideal for us. The grounds here are huge and absolutely lovely, with palm trees, hibiscus and lots of greenery everywhere, so it was perfect for little strolls before or after a meal. There are lots of little diversions here, including an 81-step observation tower, where you get not only a great overhead view of the hotel grounds but also of the bay.

This would be a great place for a family. There were kids everywhere, and they seemed to love the ubiquitous swimming pools and the little mini-golf course near the lobby. The resort's also practically across the street from Sea World, which may be walkable - I'm not sure. And that brings up another point: If you're looking for cozy neighborhood accommodations where you can walk around to check out local cafes and restaurants, etc., this is not the place. There's not much within walking distance to here – you have to get in your car and drive to get off resort property. That said, it's a nice central spot for typical SD sightseeing - a quick drive to Old Town, Balboa Park, PB, OB and not far to downtown either.

About the room: I think we got the lowest-tier type of room, as I booked an internet special (it totaled just over $200 for a 2-queen room, including parking and other fees), but it was comfortable and quiet with enough space, a roomy bathroom, the usual amenities (TV, iron, coffeemaker, fridge). There wasn't anything luxe about it, but it was comfy. Those willing to spend more might look into the beachside rooms on the fringes of the resort. The little stretches here are private, quiet and have bonfire pits.

A nice San Diego Hotel

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 1, 2004

Although it wasn't as nice as it seemed, the Paradise Point Hotel in San Diego was a decent hotel.
I was there in the end of March 1999, and the temperature was about 65F. The hotel was deserted and had almost an apartment complex feeling to it. I have a feeling that if it was high season and the resort was bustling with people, it would have had a much better flavor to it.

All in all, a nice hotel but not as nice as advertised.

Unique Quality: The pool was large and nice, and the grounds had quite a few amenities- tennis, windsurfing, a spa, restaurants (slightly overpriced for the food they offer), a fitness center and an 18-hole golf course. Be prepared to walk. The resort is made up of bungalows, and all the amenities are spread out over a substantial area. Keep the map that they give you when you check in! You will need it just to find your room, let alone trying to find the exit!

Directions: There is a map to the location on the link below.

Wasn't quite breathtaking

This resort makes an attempt at Hawaiian style bungalows surrounded by palm trees and beaches. Honestly, I wasn't too impressed.

Don't get me wrong, it certainly isn't horrible. The beds are comfortable, there are plenty of standard amenities and you won't suffer.

But if you are looking for a place with pampering and escape, perhaps you should look elsewhere.

Conference Area

The resort also did not scrimp when it came to the various rooms being used by the conference attendees. This photo shows three of the Executive Suites used to hold the meetings, along with the outdoor 'coffee break' refreshment set-up.

Spacious Rooms

by written on March 16, 2003

The rooms were quite large and consisted of the bed area as well as a kitchen (refrigerator, sink & microwave oven) and a spacious bathroom with a tiled floor and marble vanity area.

A Network of Paths

by written on March 16, 2003

The many roads/paths winding throughout the resort required either a lot of walking or the use of an electric cart to get from place to place. Photo shows a road-level view of the rooms, well hidden by the thick foliage.

A Lush Tropical Setting

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 16, 2003

Located on what is almost an island in Mission Bay, the Paradise Point resort comprises several hundred single-story rooms spread throughout a very lush and tropical environment. The landscaping at the resort was probably the best that I have ever seen - what a variety of plants!

Unique Quality: Interspersed with the foliage are various ponds, lakes and swimming areas creating a fantastic overall impression of the site. With taxes, the rooms were US$209/night. The photo is an aerial view of part of the resort taken from their observation tower beside the Check-in Area. It shows their Spa directly below and part of a beach to the left - the same one shown in my Intro photo.
