What can I say? I love to travel, and my stay at the Bahia Resort in San Diego certainly added to the pleasure of this trip.
Due to weather conditions we were unable to land in San Diego, so we re-routed to Los Angeles for fuel. When the weather conditions improved we made our way to San Diego via flying over the Pacific.
The Bahia Resort was established in 1952 with additional rooms added over a period of time. We actually stayed in a suite, though I’m not sure why. It was nice and roomy but it was a bit of a walk to the conference area…outside…in the pouring rain…wading through puddles.
The views were nice even in the rain. I can only imagine how lovely this place must be under typical California weather conditions. I think I will return to see for myself!
I never quite made the switch from EST to PST. There wasn’t enough time to adjust so I saw the sunrise the two mornings we were there, except the sun didn’t rise. Well it sort of did on Saturday, briefly, and it was gorgeous.
The room was nice, old but renovated.
I spent a lot of early morning time in this living area so as not to awaken my roomy.
Look how neat my bed is. I’m such a neat sleeper.
The fire was great (especially since we were cold and wet) until the smoke detector went off which was placed right above the fireplace. Seems like there would have been a better place for that but who am I to judge? The maintenance man advised us to only run it 10 minutes at a time. That wasn’t a problem really, but we were cold and couldn’t find the thermostat. We asked him about that and he told us there wasn’t one. That would have been a good time to tell us the heat and air unit was in the bedroom, behind the table and chairs, sort of out of the way. We found it about two hours before check-out.
Geez, maybe I am ditzy!
And last but not least, the door didn’t lock so well. Nothing a little ingenuity wouldn’t fix. Feeling safe now!
Over all I loved the Bahia Resort and would definitely stay there again.
The folks at the Bahia Resort were friendly and pleasant to deal with. They knocked a little off our bill for the few inconveniences we encountered. I will definitely return…on a sunny day.
