Silver Paradise Point - Mission Bay

1404 W. Vacation Road
San Diego, CA 92109
858-274-4630websitePrice: Expensive
Area: Mission Bay/Hotel Circle

Green grass, full flower beds and lush tropical plants wind alongside the entry route that brings guests to this secluded resort. It is one of the most beautiful hotel introductions in all San Diego. On the shores of Mission Bay and down the road from Sea World, Paradise Point is a wonderful destination for vacation travelers. Guest quarters are housed in 3 to 4 unit bungalows scattered throughout the 44-acre property. The 462 rooms are refreshingly colorful and country-home in style. However, we have heard from some travelers that the beds are somewhat hard.

The workout facility is good but not great. A mix of old and new machines is offered in an aesthetically pleasing room. Cyclists must ride recumbent and strength enthusiasts must settle for dumbbells and stack-loaded weight stations. Free weights are "missing in action" likely with the uprights! However, the ellipticals are in great condition along with the Cybex weight machines.

San Diego's best jogging paths around Mission Bay and Pacific Beach are at your doorstep, but swimmers face a challenge. Despite Paradise Point's 5 pools, not one is "lappable," and locals typically avoid swimming in Mission Bay. While the water quality is fine for some beach play and water sports, most serious swimmers question the wisdom of lengthy immersion. So, what to do? Live dangerously, or, better yet, drive 10 minutes to Clairemont Community Pool ($4). For an even nicer facility, drive 20 minutes to the Coggan Aquatic Complex. If you elect the latter, you have the added benefit of shopping along La Jolla's famed Prospect Avenue before or after you get wet.
