"A water sports paradise, take a trip around the marina or the island on a kayak, paddleboard, power boat, jet ski or perhaps a gentle pedalo is more your style?? SeaWorld&reh;, San Diego Zoo, LegoLand and fun Seal Tours are all a short drive from the resort or perhaps you'd prefer to bury your toes in the sand. Guests enjoy access to a private beach or La Jolla Cove is only 15-20 minutes from the resort the water here is calm and ecologically protected, providing a safe home for colourful garibaldi, yellowtail, rays and even leopard sharks.  

The airy, contemporary rooms have a modern California and Mediterranean vibe and 41 are suites with some offering two sided fireplaces. Most have private patios or balconies and most have views of the Marina and Point Loma hillside or the Pacific Ocean and San Diego downtown skyline. Several offer views of blossoming hotel gardens.  

There's a chic waterfront restaurant and bar with a terrace for watching the world go by, a spa for a spot of luxury personal pampering and a marina for every imaginable water sport. And as the sun goes down on another day, head down to the beach to join the nightly bonfire and roast S'mores on the beach.
