Went to Paradise Point for a business trip.
The grounds are beautiful. Extremely spread out.
Our room-nice king bed, with couch and two extra chairs, plus a desk and chair. Also had a wood armoire with TV and mini fridge. I liked the bedspread on the bed. It made me think more of home or a bed and breakfast rather than a generic hotel bedspread.
Our fridge did not work. It lacked a temperature knob and wasn't even plugged in. There was coffee left for us, but no coffee pot. I'm sure we could have asked about the fridge and coffee pot, but it really didn't matter to us. You could definitely tell that the place was old.
The last night we were there, the armoire door came off one of the hinges. It was a heavy door and I didn't want it falling off the other hinge in the middle of the night. We called the front desk and someone came to take the door off completely. It wasn't something that was a quick fix because the wood of the armoire was worn and old. Again, it wasn't something that concerned us cause we were leaving the next day.
We did not have a car, but from what I understand, it costs $17-$25 to park your car. ( I don't know the exact number).
The bar/grill at the hotel is WAY overpriced. We didn't want to eat there, but we were starving and didn't have a choice.
The gym is located in their spa. The gym cost $10 or $15 but we had a reduced rate. Small gym, but they had what I needed. All of the machines are brand new. Each bike, treadmill and ellitical had it's own tv and they gave you water, headphones and a towel. The changing room was very nice as well.
The grounds are very extensive and spread out. If you call the front desk, they will send a golf cart to take you to other places in the resort.
You really need a car at this resort as there is no other place closeby to walk to.
I don't feel as though the prices they charge for this place are worth it. They were charging $185. Considering that you have to pay to park, are limited on the food choices and that it is old, I think you could do better in the SD area. If you could get in this place for under $150, I think it would be ok.
The proximity to Sea World is outstanding and that is one positive point. There are lots of restaurants within close driving distance.
One other positive point is that the meeting and banquet facilities at this place are outstanding. The rooms and the restrooms are beautiful.
Also, the staff was always very friendly.
So, I give the 3 circles because we had some good and some bad with our trip. Stay here if you can find a good rate-otherwise, find somewhere else where they don't charge you for every single thing.
