The Bahia Resort Hotel takes full advantage of its unique location. Its 14 acres occupy a peninsula jutting into Mission Bay, promising spectacular water views from most guest rooms. SeaWorld is just a five-minute drive from the property, while the Gaslamp Quarter, San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park can be reached in less than 15 minutes.

Guest rooms offer views of the bay or garden, and most have floor-to-ceiling windows opening to small balconies or patios. Accommodations feature one king bed or two queens, breakfast nooks, minifridges, coffee makers, flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and complimentary Wi-Fi. Upgrading to a studio adds seating areas with sofa beds; suites can accommodate families of six with full living rooms featuring pull-out sofas and loveseats.

Traditionally a conference hotel, the property also caters to families with a junior Olympic-size pool, two tennis courts with free use of rackets and balls, a video arcade and 30-person hot tub. On the private beach, guests have exclusive -- and complimentary -- access to cabanas, while kids of all ages can indulge in the long menu of water sports such as kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, surfing and sailing. Each evening, complimentary cruises on a restored Mississippi-style steam-powered paddle boat are offered for guests. 

The hotel’s family-friendly restaurant serves healthy Mediterranean cuisine with the option to dine indoors or on the heated terrace. Before or after dinner, sip cocktails around the fireplace at the Moroccan-inspired lounge or venture off the property to nearby restaurants and bars -- downtown San Diego is less than 10 miles away.
