"High expectations / Mediocre experience"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed December 18, 2018 NEW
Good: - Atmosphere of tropical plants, decor and Polynesian vibe. - Clean, heated pool & spa. - Location. Close to harbor, beaches and short drive from Old Town & Downtown. - Check-in was easy & helpful with a room reservation error (my fault). Mediocre: - Room was clean but needed maintenance. (ie.Sliding blinds on entry door worked very poorly, closet doors were completely broken and were inoperable, drawers on dresser would roll out and not stay shut, bathroom faucets were loose and wobbled on the counter.) Bad: - AC heater was broken. (Set heater to 72* at night, woke up to 48* inside.) - Informed front desk of broken heater and staff was unapologetic. - 15 prior to check-out, maintenance came to our room to fix AC while we were trying to pack up. (Why couldn't this wait 15 minutes?) Overall: I was excited to stay here because of its tropical vibe, location & history. Those these boxes were checked, the other basic hotel amenities fell short. Definitely falls under the category of "been there done that" and will probably stay elsewhere on our next visit.

Loved the location of this hotel and friendly staff. It was easy to take walks along the San Diego Bay. Fun getaway spot. Also very convenient to access. It didn’t feel like we were in a big city. Relaxing.

"A fantastic place"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed November 28, 2018 NEW
After a long journey from the U.K. we finally arrived late at night, so we were amazed when we opened our blinds in the morning to see the wonderful marina, lush landscape and beautiful surroundings at this lovely hotel. Our room was very clean, and had a well equipped kitchen area, with all the appliances to make it a home away from home. The front desk staff couldn’t have been more helpful, and generally our only regret was that we couldn’t stay longer. Would love to return.

"Beautiful resort-style hotel"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed November 28, 2018 NEW
Stayed here for a gathering of friends, and loved it so much that I added an extra day to my stay! The rooms are spacious, clean, well-appointed and comfortable. I would have loved to have been able to just relax and enjoy the room itself more (but San Diego is full of things to do). The grounds host events such as parties and weddings. My one gripe was the confusion in locating and getting to the room where our event was being held...after being shuffled around a bit we were personally led to the space by the friendly person at the front desk. All in all, a fantastic place to stay.
