We decided to beat the heat for a couple days (our place had no AC) and stay near the beach. We had been here before for Mother's Day brunch so we decided to give the place a try. It's right on Mission Bay so great for swimming, paddle boarding and general relaxing! Our room was comfortable but one of the best part of our stay was the Mediterranean Buffet! Chef Fuad explained all the dishes in detail and with such pride you felt like you were a guest in his home. The rest of the staff were also extremely friendly and welcoming. Crystal talked and joked with us as we picked our delicious adult beverage (strawberry basil margarita!!!!), Lisa made sure we were never without water (greatly appreciated after a day in the sun!), and we were checked on by the manager, Josh who made sure everything was too our liking. We had a very memorable evening.
Overall, we would definitely stay here again for another stay-cation and for any out of town guests, you can't beat the location. It's super close to the beach and SeaWorld and a close drive to downtown and the Zoo.
