A Beautiful and Family Friendly Island Resort
As we turned off of the main street and into the resort there was an amazing transition from city to tropics in a matter of minutes. Paradise Point Resort & Spa is on its own 44-acre island in San Diego, complete with amazing tranquility and phenomenal panoramic views. As a San Diego native, I could not have imagined this to be in San Diego and I asked myself, “How did I not know this was in San Diego all the years I lived there?”
Paradise Point Resort is a private island paradise that is a short drive to The Gaslamp District, Little Italy, SeaWorld, Balboa Park, Old Town and swanky La Jolla. This 44-acre resort struck me as a mini-Hawaii with lush grounds and breathtaking sunsets across the bay. This unique island resort features 462 bungalow-style rooms, including 162 hotel suites. The typical hotel rooms of other properties do not synonymize themselves with the private bay front California bungalow cabanas that this island resort offers. Cabanas open to the bay where you can enjoy a nice breeze and the scenic Mission Bay view and relax in the great Southern California weather.

Our Paradise Point Resort Lanai Bayside Room
Our wonderful room was above the sandy beach along the Mission Bay waters. The views of Mission Bay and of the surrounding city of San Diego were amazing. The parking for your room is a reserved spot across the road from your room, so getting in an out of the resort was a snap. We stayed in a Lanai Bayside Guestroom which was nicely decorated (modern tropical), immaculately clean and very comfortable. The room had very comfortable beds, hard wood floors, a flat screen TV and a mini fridge. As you open the back door of your room, there is a private patio with two Adirondack chairs and a table. This is a great place to relax and take in the view of the bay. As you pass your patio there is a sandy beach that runs along the bay.
My favorite part of this resort was the bay surrounding the property where my daughter and I were able to take morning walks, peacefully. Along our walk we were able to pick up shells and tiny rocks from the bay since it was so serene. The bay is so calm with only minimal water ripples that parents can feel safe allowing even their little ones to play in the sand without worrying about heavy ocean waves.
