Whether you’re a San Diego local looking for a staycation destination or trying to create a getaway you’ll never forget, there’s really only one accommodation worth considering in America’s Finest City—Paradise Point Resort & Spa. The beautiful beachside property has been a staple in the San Diego hotel scene since it opened in 1962. Interested in visiting this summer? Here are 10 reasons why we love this accommodation:

San Diego Resort

462 Bungalows to Choose From

The hotel property which covers a whopping 44 acres of San Diego land,  just completed a $24 million transformation in which 462 bungalow-style guest rooms now feature California-coastal aesthetic. All standard accommodations are spacious, ranging in size from 450-650 square feet, and offer either lagoon, bay or garden views.


Suites That Will Blow Your Mind

If you’re looking to elevate your vacay game, why not book a suite and live like West Coast royalty during your stay? With four different varieties of suites available, guests will enjoy luxurious amenities like private patios, in-room fireplaces, beach access and even private kitchens and living rooms to accommodate all your travel needs.


Beach Access and Bonfire Pits

No matter what type of room you stay in, you’ll be just steps away from the sand. Paradise Point’s island is encircled by one mile of scenic beaches. Guests have access to 14 welcoming bonfire pits on the beach. Additionally, the bays and beaches of Mission Beach and Pacific Beach are just a short drive or bike ride away.


Enjoy Five Picture-Perfect Pools

Not in the mood to feel the sand between your toes? Hop into one of the property’s five opulent pools. Located throughout the sizable premises, there are pools featuring waterfalls, fire pits and bars that provide beach chair-side food and drink service. Plus there’s even an adults-only pool for those 18 and up!


Delicious Dining Options

Looking for a classy, contemporary meal? Visit Tidal with your significant other for a romantic evening. Trying to feed the kids between visits to the pool? Caveman Pizza Company has you covered. There are five amazing on-site restaurants available, ranging from cool cocktail bars to outdoor coastal eateries.   

Located in the Heart of San Diego

Paradise Point is just 10 minutes north of the San Diego International Airport and moments away from the city’s top attractions. You won’t have to venture far to access the colorful carnival rides of Belmont Park, the exotic animals at the San Diego Zoo or even the bustling shopping centers of downtown La Jolla. Enjoy being in close proximity to all the area’s top attractions—whether you crave a night dancing in the Gaslamp or are envisioning sipping on a craft beer in North Park.


Island-Themed Spa

The 7,000-square-foot spa offers massages, body treatments, facials, manicures and more. With private and couple treatments available, you can pamper yourself or enjoy a luxurious day with the one you love. The island-themed spa incorporates pampering methods from around the world, such as Balinese massage and a sugar glow treatment with ingredients sourced from tropical destinations. Did we mention the spa boasts access to a private garden and hot tub? Paradise found.


Fitness Facilities Galore

If riding a bike on the Pacific Beach boardwalk or paddle boarding in Mission Bay isn’t enough to tire you out, there are world-class fitness facilities on site for your enjoyment. In addition to a top-notch gym, the resort offers five tennis courts, an 18-hole putting course, a 1.3 mile jogging track, bike rentals and lawn croquet.


Panoramic Views of Mission Bay

Step outside your room with a warm mug of coffee and watch as morning kayakers make their way across the bay. Or walk up the 81 steps to reach the hotel’s observation tower for a panoramic view of Mission Bay and the surrounding area. Whether you bring along your phone to snap a picture or just take a moment to soak it all in, it’s not a view you’ll soon forget.


Full Vacation Mode

In addition to its many pools, restaurants and fitness facilities, Paradise Point is home to a full-service marina complete with sailboats, speed boats, kayaks and more. When you’re not renting a jet ski for the day, take some time to appreciate the lush tropical settings that the hotel is engulfed in. Home to more than 600 types of exotic plants from over 20 countries, you’ll find yourself unsure if you’ve traveled to Southern California or a lush jungle abroad.
