My Experience in San Diego
Earlier this summer, I traveled to San Diego for a solo work trip. The ResortPass website had an impressive list of properties available in San Diego, La Jolla, and surrounding areas ranging from rooftop pools to cabanas at the famous Hotel Del Coronado. Rates for day passes start at $15 per person.
I opted to visit the San Diego Mission Bay Resort because it was right on the water, a large outdoor pool with cabanas, a private beach, access to watercraft rentals, and an onsite restaurant that was available for take-out. I should note that I visited San Diego while there were certain COVID restrictions in place, so some properties had not opened their kitchens yet. Later that day, I would be checking into this property's sister resort on Shelter Island, Kona Kai Resort and Spa. So I thought it would be a great comparison.
Resort Passes for Mission Bay Resort currently start at $60 for adults and $14 for children ages 13 and under. Day passes include complimentary wifi and parking. Also available are the daybed ($175 for 2 people) and cabana ($275 for 4 people) rentals which include added amenities such as bottled water, a pitcher of tea or lemonade, and a complimentary snack basket in the cabana.
Overall the resort offered a wonderful daycation experience. I lounged by the pool, walked along the beach, read a book in a shaded chair swing, and had delicious fish tacos from the on-site restaurant. It was the perfect day in a relaxed setting. The next time I'm in San Diego, I want to resort hop at enjoy day passes at beach resorts up the coast.
