Nestled among 10 tropically landscaped acres of waterfront in San Diego’s Mission Bay Aquatic Park, The Dana on Mission Bay is the ideal spot for travelers and families to explore all of the activities, amusement parks and fresh seafood that San Diego has to offer.

Two vast infinity pools provide stunning views of the bay, which guests can explore on foot, or from a rental bike, kayak, WaveRunner or paddleboat, all available for rent on site. The hotel’s two restaurants serve local Southern California fare, and the swim-up bar serves all warm-weather favorites.

Enjoyed Most: The location and ambiance was enjoyable.
Other Comments: We were warned by travel zoo about the resort fee. But there was no mention of parking fee as hotel guest until check out. $20! Per day. We got them to take it off one day since we weren't even there during the day one of the two days. The room, though nice ambiance and designed was not comfortable, as in: you could hear everything through the walls. People walking by on the upstairs walkway shook the room and the doorway wasn't even sealed so noise went in and out.

Enjoyed Most: Good location
Other Comments: Too noisy around the pool. People were by pool making noise until after midnight. Stupid kids movies until 10 pm by pool Also, noise coming from room next door. Resturant too expensive

Enjoyed Most: Friendly and very courteous staff. Thanks to Don for giving some great info on transportation. Probably would have spent a fortune on taxi fare if it wasn't for him.
Other Comments: Great location if you are planning on going to sea world (walking distance) or spending the day at the beach (Mission Beach)
