Each time we have been to San Diego we have fallen in love with the entire area anew. This year we found it to be the perfect place for Spring Break. Coming from the eastern and central parts of the USA, San Diego offers so much fun, sand, and sun, without the crowds you find on the East Coast because Spring Break for California schools is later.
We chose a lovely suite at the Bahia Resort Hotel for our home away from home on wonder-filled Mission Bay. You can request almost any type of accommodations here, from spacious single rooms on the water, to very large suites with living room and full kitchen overlooking the Bay or the beautifully landscaped California-style villas with private patios on a tropical garden. Bahia Resort is the perfect vacation residence for family vacations or reunions any time of year, and it is also perfect for college students, tour groups, or conventions.
The very large Resort, which hugs the curving, sandy shore of Mission Bay, covers a large property, where you’ll find fun for everyone: from tennis courts, to shuffle board, state-of-the-art fitness center, video game room, wide beach, and a large variety of water sports and boat rentals just outside your door. The beautiful heated swimming pool is open all year, with a hot tub for extra relaxing.
Depending on your time of year to be at Bahia, you can enjoy a complimentary cruise around Mission Bay on the beautiful Bahia Belle, which is also available for weddings and parties. Bahia is located just a few minutes from most of the tourist attractions which are so plentiful in San Diego.
The exquisitely landscaped and manicured grounds of Bahia offer inspiring walks beside the ocean bay or quiet, reflective meanderings within the lush tropical walkways of the secluded lagoon to watch the antics of the water fowl. For boat rentals you can choose from many types including sailing and cruisers or you can have guided boat trips for individuals or any size group.
Children love the great playground at Bahia, and we all enjoy watching the rescue seals who enjoy their protected and posh life in the Seal Lagoon, where special pups who cannot make it in the wild are sent to thrive.
Tangier Bar, beside the Reception area, offers Happy Hour with special snacks for several hours each afternoon. Bahia Cafe is the perfect place to eat. The atmosphere is very casual, so you can come straight from the beach, and the food is DELICIOUS: from full breakfast buffet through lunch and excellent dinners. The choices are varied, attractively presented, and REALLY good! You can also lazily call for room-service for almost any type of food.
Yep! Bahia has thought of EVERYTHING you could want or need on your perfect vacation! Laundry facilities for guests to use are located in several places, so you don’t have to bring such large suitcases. The resort can even arrange baby-sitting. Spacious and lovely convention facilities and ballrooms are on site, and the most beautiful weddings can be arranged inside or in the gazebo of the picturesque lagoon, or even beach-side or on your private Bahia Belle fully catered cruise! Special group pricing is thoughtfully arranged on request.
The wonderful Evans Resort Hotel Group includes two other beautiful properties in San Diego. Close to the Bahia is the Catamaran Resort, where we luxuriated in the marvelous Spa. You can select from all kinds of massages by expert therapists, who will make you feel Oh So Pampered and Relaxed and work out all those travel kinks. They also offer excellent nail care, facials, sauna, steam room, hot tub, and much more. Be sure to treat yourself as part of your holiday.
We also enjoyed a delicious lunch on the terrace by the Bay at the Catamaran’s Atoll Restaurant. Chef Steven prepares unusual and scrumptious fare which is as pretty as it is tasty and healthful. You can dine inside or out and thrill your tastebuds as well as enjoy the gorgeous scenery.
Bahia, Catamaran, and the third sister hotel up the coast a few miles, The Lodge at Torrey Pines, are your BEST choices of accommodations for your stay in San Diego. If you are a golfer you’ll want to enjoy Torrey Pines famous and beautiful golf course, which is a world renowned San Diego municipal course.
