Our bungalow style-room was a perfect mixture of beach modern interior. We decided to check out the dining options and were pleased to find Barefoot Bar & Grill where I had an amazing Ahi style salad and the boyfriend had a delicious burger and fries. Right next door Tidal, a more casual fine dining restaurant known for it’s local seafood and  savory shared plates. 


Overall, Paradise Resort & Spa met my expectations and more. If you’re thinking of weekend places to stay in the San Diego area this is one not to pass up! 


When given the opportunity to stay at a four star spacious San Diego resort I was more than thrilled to take on the task!  Located on a private island on Mission Bay the southern Californian resort features bungalow-style rooms, including seventy three hotel suites.  

The property itself is about forty four acres surrounded by a one mile sandy beach. With many activities for the family or a romantic getaway with the significant other you won’t go without. The resort includes multiple waterfront restaurants and dining options, a luxurious spa and salon with a private garden courtyard, beach cruisers for rent to cruise the island with and numerous other amenities.

After a some what long car ride down from Long Beach, I was looking forward to my stay at this acclaimed resort. We were greeted by friendly faces and a welcoming atmosphere. The buzzing of families walking around, couples young and older holding hands talking about the next activity on their agenda had me enthused. 


The next day, I was surprised by my lovely boyfriend to a massage treatment in the resorts premier spa. Voted one of the top 100 U.S. resort spas by Conde Nast Travler. Greeted again by friendly faces in the spas lobby, I knew right away I was in for a treat. I was taken back to their private garden courtyard and then to their lounge. My massage room was both plush and exotic. The experience was one of a kind and unforgettable.
