Beautiful property
Wonderful property. Never a fan of resort AND parking charges in addition to the room rates, but all else was fantastic.

Great “Daycation” Relaxation
Excellent “Daycation” or “Staycation” for short So Cal getaways. I actually attended a scheduled business event at the resort and decided to stay over. Loved it!

Can I Live Here?
From moment one I could tell this place was different. My sister and I were here for a girls weekend and we were blown away by our stay. We literally said to each other “this hotel doesn’t do anything wrong”. Everything... the decor, views, pool, surprise complimentary wine and water in our room, toiletries, lighting/tech, even the bedside clock... everything was perfection. On thing that made our stay so exceptional was Damian. Through friendly conversation, Damian took an interest in why we were there and went above and beyond to make our stay special. He gave us a spot on dinner reservation, and when we returned to our room, he had sent a handwritten note. Who does that anymore? Damian does. Balboa Bay Resort is better because of him. I am a firm believer that people can make an incredible difference and that couldn’t be truer of Damian. I will recommend Balboa Bay Resort to everyone I know and hope to return myself some day. My only negative about this hotel is that we didn't stay longer!
