So much awesomeness in one place
It was the most incredible, romantic, over the top accommodations and service! I highly recommend Balboa Bay Resort.

Service was exceptional however I could hear people above just walking so rooms are not very sound proof

Good 6.0
The hotel was luxurious and nice. Very well cleaned and mannered but it’s like the security and service have a eagle eye on every single thing you do. There was a black Range Rover that was constantly harassing and circling around our hotel room. There were 2 security guards literally glued to each other that wouldn’t stop calling and knocking on our door to keep it down when it was 9:30 pm and we weren’t being loud. We played music very dim and they called as soon as we played one song that they would kick us out if we don’t turn it off. Very unpleased

Good 6.0
got a view overlooking the parking entrance and there was so many cars going in n out the smog and noise made it so we couldnt even open a window or use our nice balcony. bummer for the price

Exceptional 10.0
Excellent rooms. Comfortable beds. Had a nice view of the bay. The two restaurants were delicious and fun to sit around the fire pits and have wine. I had a smoothie at the cafe one morning that was awful(spoiled kale?) but other than that it was great!

Beautiful!
We arrived extremely early but the desk agent Timothy accommodated us by allowing an early check in. He further gave restaurant recommendations and even offered use of the property’s Town Car for transportation. This resort is lovely with peaceful views of the Bay and magnificent yachts.

Relaxing stay
Everything about this resort is amazing: from check in to room to views. We practically stayed our entire time at the hotel including happy hour, dinner, and dessert. The pool is beautiful. Service impeccable. The only improvement would be the toilet paper and the height of the shower dispensers. My 8-year-old could not reach,
