I wouldn't recommendPosted Nov 4, 2014
Pros: The greeters or "bellhops" and it has pretty grounds.
Cons: The restaurant prices. The cleaning services. The description of what you will be getting. The parking fee. The spa prices. The places to eat.
Location: There are no shuttles and its on its own island but with crappy restaurants you have to go into town. Zoos 17 mins away and sea worlds close.
It was nice being greeted and offered assistance right away. Check in was fine but nothing special we got to check in early even though Expedia said we couldn't. I was pretty disappointed finding out that our room was attached to 4 other rooms. It says you will have a bungalow and makes it seem as if they are individual. My room was looking at a hedge with a few flowers on it. I had requested a view from Expedia with a good view. This was not the case what so ever. Many other open rooms with views but they decided to put us with 0 view and a busier road. It was next to a soda machine that had a very loud hum to it. When walking in the door the ambiance was pretty except the dirty floors. The beds looked very nice until you got in them and they were very very firm. I said in my request that my mother has Rheumatoid Arthritis and that her body hurts and cannot walk far distances. She normally sleeps on a memory foam mattress but this was very uncomfortable for her body. Also there are curtains over the doors but not black out that face exactly the bed. You also can't move the curtain to see out the door. If you don't like light when the sun comes up, I don't suggest staying in their rooms. Their restaurants were mediocre at best. I'm not sure of any mediocre restaurant that charges $25 for a steak at a seafood place. That is with no sides or drinks or anything, just 1 steak. Nothing came with sides. All of them were $5. To get to any cool place was about a $15-22 Uber.

Great Place to Relax, find privacy, enjoy a drinkPosted Oct 24, 2014
Cons: Must use a GPS or you could be driving in circles for a while finding the correct turn to Vacation Island.
This is a great place to have a relaxing vacation. Helpful staff. Good Food. Privacy. Close to San Diego interesting locations to visit.

ExpensivePosted Oct 15, 2014
The hotel was reasonably priced but everything at the resort was very expensive.

Nice place with issues.Posted Oct 14, 2014
Pros: Location, the room was nice. Service at Tidal was excellent. Would recommend with warnings.
Cons: That parking charge may have been enough to turn me away. Barefoot Bar service.
Location: Great location. Sea World almost across the street. Belmont Roller Coaster and the Wavehouse. Pacific Beach is very close.
Place is nice and the location great. First thing got me was the insane amount a night for your vehicle. I brought it up at check out and it was cut in half, which was still ridiculous. The service at the Barefoot Bar is non-existent. 1st day we got a table in the afternoon, not busy, waited 15 minutes and got up and went to the bar. No luck there, fortunately Tidal was open and they were great. 2nd day went in the directly to the bar in the late morning. 15 minutes to get acknowledged ant 10 to get a drink.In that time 4-5 couples gave up and left. 3rd day tried again, it was half empty and we were told it was a 15 minute wait. What? We just left.

Not stqatisfactoryPosted Oct 14, 2014
Pros: Nothing, it was conference hotel
All is fine, but on my checkout was not??! The staff at checkout, some of them are nice and some of them are rude. On checking out the woman agent probably was having hard morning by reflecting not friendly face to guest. I want to pay the balance using cash which was just 80.6 US$. I gave her 100 $ bill and she said she cannot return the change back because she has no cash in the front desk box. She was cold in advising me how i change just 100$, and cold enough to assist. Then I need to go around to change the 100 $ with my luggage. I obliged to buy a coffee restaurant to do such change. It was surprising for such kind of checking-out system.

A peaceful little island in the heart of San DiegoPosted Oct 14, 2014
Pros: Assigned parking spaces are the best! Right on the water rooms and Bon fire pits. Love the big pool area!
Cons: Update the bathrooms
Location: Close to freeways, Mission Beach, University of San Diego, Point Loma
Great place: pools, bay, beach, tropical feel like Hawaii in San Diego. Rooms are older, so it looks and feels a little bit dated, but is a little piece of paradise none the less. Fair prices and assigned parking!

Resort was perfect you will pay for it though...Posted Oct 7, 2014
Everything about our stay was perfect.. Until we went to check out. THey automatically charged us a "hotel fee" of over $25 a day for access to things at the resort we were not interested in nor asked for. And also charged us $35 a day to PARK?!?!? I was not happy about the additional $300 + I was charged and they were uncaring and refused to refund saying it was in the fine print. I will never stay here again due to the "fine print".

Just awfulPosted Oct 4, 2014
This was the last stop on our 3 week US roadtrip. The plan was to spend our last 4 days in an amazing 4* paradise resort to chillout before our long trip back to the UK. What a disappointment! Out of the many along the way, this was the most expensive and the worst resort we stayed at, and I am not exaggerating when I say the worst place I have ever stayed. First thing you will notice on the hike to your room is the pools are pretty empty with lots of sun loungers available! Great! But then you take a closer look... 9/10 of the sun loungers are broken, making them the most uncomfortable contraption this side of the electric chair. Plus all of them are dirty and stained. In fact everything is warn and dirty. The rooms, beach, pools, fences, gates, paths and signs. The one half saving grace is the landscaping and plant life. For the 3 nights in a beach bungalow we paid $1,245 or £765 and was charged extra for everything including the bottles of water that seem free. There was no sign in our room or on the bottles that warned of a charge but the lobby staff would not accept it so we paid the $4 a bottle!?! Anyway, when we managed to navigate through the labrinth resort and got to the bungalow, it looked like a cheap single story flat roof characterless breeze block army barracks building with a flower bed but nowhere near the level of cleanliness an army officer would be expected to maintain. Not what I expected at all. Could so easily be made to look better with a pal
