Positive Reviews

Perfect placement.

You'll be able to visit the nearby bay, enjoy views of the marina from your room, and explore numerous San Diego hotspots with ease, thanks to the resort's location on the water. You won't even need a car to see many of the surrounding attractions.

Top-notch staff.

The staff at this resort are more than willing to help you plan your ideal stay, and will do anything from fetch extra amenities to assist in planning for your itinerary. The room service is another bonus that they fully deliver on.

Serene surroundings.

Kona Kai & Marina is an excellent choice for relaxation or general leisure time because the area is so tranquil and beautiful. Everything from the blue waters to the comfortable accommodations contribute to a sense of wellbeing and slow living, and will make your vacation more than memorable.

Negative Reviews

Troubles with supplies.

Supplies such as beach balls, towels, and chairs were often limited or were already out of stock, which could be troubling if you're looking to hit the beach with your family. In some cases, you'll need to acquire your own supplies or wait for the rentals to return.

Limited meal choices.

While the restaurant provides a fair quality of food, there's often not a huge variety of choices for you, which can be troublesome for picky eaters or those desiring a bit more choice during longer stays.

Missing room amenities.

Some room amenities that you may expect at a resort location, such as a microwave, are not present in the rooms. While they're generally well-furnished and usable, you may find yourself craving some of these extra appliances.
