Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa, a Great Family Hotel
San Diego is just a five-hour car ride from my home in Arizona, and it’s been a favorite vacation spot ever since I was a child. There are many options for family resorts in San Diego. My family was excited to try a new location and we quickly decided a vacation at Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa was a great choice.
Central San Diego Location
Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa is located in the middle of it all. It sits on Mission Bay right behind SeaWorld. We could see the Atlantis ride from our room. The San Diego Zoo, Old Town, and Downtown San Diego are also just minutes away. Legoland is 30 minutes north. I liked that the resort is right on the water, but away from the busy Mission Beach.
There are a variety of rooms to choose from at Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa. My family stayed in a room overlooking Mission Bay with a patio. This type of room is terrific for families. The rooms are very spacious and include a refrigerator and microwave. Our favorite part was the fire pit on the patio. After a long day we snuggled up to our personal fire pit and roasted marshmallows while having a perfect view of the SeaWorld fireworks.
Fun Family Activities
The pool at the resort overlooks Mission Bay. There is a play pool for the kids as well as a larger pool with a zero-depth entry. Cabanas equipped with snacks, drinks, TVs, and movies are available for rent.
A variety of rentals are also available on the beach in front of the resort at Action Sport Rentals. Sailboats, paddle boats, paddle boards, jet skis, Segways, and bicycles are available for rent by the hour. Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa also hosts family activities in the summer. Poolside movies, s’mores on the beach, and Junior Olympics were some of the activities available during our stay.
Restaurants Overlooking Mission Bay
Don’t miss breakfast at Acqua. Sit on the patio and enjoy the huge breakfast buffet while watching the activities on Mission Bay. Acqua also serves lunch and dinner. Other restaurants at Hilton San Diego Resort include a coffee shop, a lounge, and the pool restaurant.
Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa has everything onsite for a relaxing and fun family stay. San Diego activities are in close proximity, but the resort has everything for a perfect weekend that it makes it hard to leave!
