    We recently held a virtual staff "conference/retreat" at the Bahia. I had driven by the property for years, but living locally, I never stopped in or knew much about it. What a pleasant surprise it was to stay there and use one of their conference rooms for our virtual conference (of course masks, socially distant, etc all the way). The staff was amazingly helpful (thank you Julie, Jorge and Cheryl). That really made it! But the grounds were also gorgeous with lush tropical landscaping, water features and beachfront access. The rooms were nice and the way the resort is laid out, there's many with oceanfront views. The property has been there for quite a while so it had that beachy old school charm which as coastal people we like. We are planning on a family vacation there now that we have discovered it!

    We live locally and have been fortunate enough to visit this hotel a couple times for little getaways. This resort has the most bang for your buck –a wide range of room options to fit your budget, boat/kayak/paddleboard rentals, and you’re right on a private beach on the Bay. It’s perfect for young children, as there is no wake- just nice calm water. We always eat at least one time at the Restaurant here on site. I love their Cobb salad! Twice now Jazmin has been our server- she is so sweet! Very kind and patient with us and our three-year-old and seven-month-old. She even remembered us on our second visit, which made us feel special. We will definitely be coming back! As a SD resident, I highly recommend the Bahia resort.

    Great Location and Friendly Staff

    Great location! Walking, biking or a short drive to plenty of restaurants and shopping. Everyone is following social distancing and wearing masks but the pool can get busy so I just walk over to the beach! First come, first serve Cabanas are a plus and having an attendant to provide water and towels was great, very friendly! I bought my drinks from the bar and walked to the beach. I could've spent the whole day there and you can BYOB! Only thing I can say they can improve on now is the food at Cafe Bahia. I ate there for lunch and tried the Santa Maria Tri Tip sandwich which was unfortunately so bland that I asked for salt and salsa. Still terrible, but I'm not the type to return or waste food so I ate half and finished off the delicious fries! Not sure if all their food is that inadequate, but I did try to have breakfast there and they would not seat me in a corner away from crowds saying every table is reserved. Please add reserved signs since the host had no idea and tried to seat me in a 2 top in the middle of the dining crowd. I didn't feel comfortable so I just checked out and I highly recommend trying Breakfast Republic at Pacific Beach. Not sure if I'll come back, but maybe I would like to bring my family next summer to check out Movie nights on the beach the hotel offers. This is a family friendly hotel surrounded with plenty of attractions to see once Covid becomes a memory.

    Terrible handling of reservation

    We paid more when booking to stay in a first floor bay front room. Upon arrival it was not available and we were not given the room we booked. We ended up moving after the first night. We were very disappointed and unhappy.
