Hotel staff is great, location easy to find, restaurant breakfast so so, room very clean, hotel is dated, the worst is the last day of the stay there is a concert right outside our room and ended at 10:30. Great hotel for half the rack rate in mid June.
A nice cental place to stay. Walking distance to Sea World or free shuttle. A 5 minute drive to nice beaches, 10 minute drive to Old Town or Little Italy. Staff is very attentive and friendly. $120-250 Jet ski rentals are steps away at the marina.
We have been staying @ the Bahia for years. Location is Awesome. Beautiful grounds. The price is Very high in the Summer season.
We ordered a Suite with a Kitchen. When I was ordering online, the option was for 2 Queen Beds. When I got my confirmation, it said King bed with a sofa sleeper. I called the Bahia, and tried to change the reservation & was told they were booked solid. Upon check in, I tried again but there was no Queen rooms available.
Bahia needs to upgrade those sofa sleepers! They were miserable to sleep on ( even for smaller Kids!)
For the money they charge, they really need to make the optional secondary beds comfortable! That's my only complaint I've EVER had with this resort. In the future, I will only book 2 queen beds for my family!
We stayed for five days in mid June. The weather was gloomy for a few days but beautifully cool. The hotel staff were pleasant. The room was comfortable, however there was no bathtub and the bathroom was tight. The maid service began before 9 am. The parking lot had very small spaces, good for a small car, but not for midsize or large cars.
This hotel has a wonderful staff that is very helpful. They put us in a room that was close to a busy street so the room was fairly noisy. It is an older property and our room was showing its age. Keep in mind that in addition to the price of the hotel, you will pay a $62 per night resort/parking fee. The boat shuttle to SeaWorld is very nice and is $10 per person.
"Nice, clean hotel & room, service staff excellent"
Hotel Aqua Mar was a nice hotel to stay. Friendly staff, quiet, good service support, clean room, close to the beaches, harbor, restaurants and one of the bet coffee houses in San Diego, outside the front door. I will be returning again and will recommend to my friends.

Nice resort and ton of tropical trees, best part is you can walk to pacific beach and also Mission Bay beach. Only downside is their elevator is so slow. Also Ralphs is only a block away and always it's nice walk in the morning and air is great down there. We had a studio facing pacific ocean and we were able to see sunset every evening from our balcony. It's so beautiful.
During warm weather, crowds pack the waters off Mission Beach and Pacific Beach, two of the most popular stretches of San Diego sand. These laidback locales are known to host the occasional farmer’s market or arts festival. Mission Boulevard connects both beaches and leads north to La Jolla’s seaside estates. Dramatic sandstone cliffs shroud the La Jolla Cove, a small beach accessible by foot.
