While I did not get married at the Bahia, they did provide our wedding room block and we took our first look, family, and bridal party pictures in the garden. I truly want to recognize the Bahia for their excellent service, quality, flexibility, and kindness. First of all, we nearly doubled the number of rooms in our assigned block and the Bahia continued to extend the discounted room rate even though they didn't have to do so. Second, all our guests LOVED the hotel!! Everyone was extremely pleased with the service and we heard no complaints. The hotel even sent champagne and chocolate covered strawberries to our room which were waiting for us after the wedding!!
We had planned to take first look, bridal party, and family photos in the tropical garden at the Bahia before we headed to the ceremony but two days before the wedding we were worried about rain and our photographer was concerned about being able to take photos if it was drizzling. I was starting to worry and get a little upset since I didn't want all those photos to be squeezed into our hotel room so I walked over to the catering department and knocked on the door of two women having a meeting (I feel so so bad for forgetting their names!!). I was going to ask if there was any way we could do photos in the Bahia ballroom in case it rained and started to cry a little...I really didn't think I was that upset but it just all came out at once. The two women we SO KIND AND UNDERSTANDING. They got me tissues and listened to me blubber a little before telling me not to worry and ensured that it if rained we would be able to take photos in the ballroom (even though we weren't having our wedding at the Bahia or paying to use the ballroom). Their kindness came at the perfect time and truly exemplified the qualities of the Bahia staff. I would also like to thank the front desk staff who ensured we had parking for all our cars and the restaurant staff which managed our rotating cast of family each morning.

Amazing venue! Holly (catering manager) was great and made us feel like ours was the most important weeding on her schedule, even thought there were several the weekend we were there. The William D. Evans is a stunning reception venue and the pond makes for a lovely and intimate ceremony space. Highly recommended!

Fantastic venue for a wedding. Ours was a destination wedding for us and all our guests. Such a beautiful location, great service, unbelievable value (for both lodging and the ceremony/reception), all our guests loved the resort, the wedding went smoothly and we were able to enjoy it along with our guests. Special thanks to our planner Yinka (Freeman) and day of coordinator Jamie (Rury)... they helped us get everything right, from helping with vendor lists, setting the menu, getting the decorations up, moving people between the ceremony and reception... everything went smoothly and we were able to relax and enjoy our day. I also need to mention the food served at our reception was delicious and got rave reviews from all our guests... the event went so well, our guests enjoyed it so much, that many are already planning return trips to the Bahia just because it was so good.

Kadi Duff and the Bahia Hotel provided the most amazing experience for our wedding. We walked down the Isle in the sand. We celebrated our reception on a boat. The food... Amazing. the atmosphere, perfect. The experience... WOW. but there is one thing that easily stood out to us, and that was the service, not only from Kadi, but the entire staff. We truly felt like the resort was ours, like there was no one else there. Our wedding was so perfect, and we can not thank the Bahia enough for making this fairytale real!!

I just had my wedding at the Bahia on 9/21/13. The venue was amazing! We got married on the beach and had our reception in the mission ballroom. It is one of the few places in San Diego that you can get married on the actual sand through a resort. At the Bahia the resort owns the beach and therefore the only people roaming around is limited to guests. I highly recommend the Bahia for a beach ceremony. Most other places you can get married on the grass of the bay, but not the sand.

The mission ballroom is gorgeous and has an amazing view of the bay. The floor length windows truly let you and your guests enjoy it! The chandeliers are also gorgeous! Also the area is pretty private ... You have an elevator going up directly to the ballroom and your own bathrooms for the floor.

The packages at the venue are super inclusive, which we loved!! They were inclusive, but allowed for a lot of personalization and a lot of choices. It was perfect because we had a lot of choices to make, but I was not overwhelmed because the package came with certain things and it was a matter of choosing the color or between a few types or a few different vendors. There were several things you could upgrade to and the fees were not significant.

Beth Hunt is an amazing Catering Sales Manager! We loved working with her. She is easy going and super responsive and extremely helpful!! We also appreciate all the hard work of Cheryl (Banquet Captain), Event Elements (anything and everything for the tables at the reception), Edelweiss Bakery and all of the wait staff as they made our wedding amazing as well. The food was really good!! We got lots of compliments on the dinner, desert & appetizers.

I highly recommend the Bahia. There are so many perfect photo locations. For us the Bahia was perfect, it is very reasonable priced and one of the few places you can get married on the beach. Also the staff is easy to work with and very accommodating and helpful!

I planned my wedding from over the phone since I live in NyC and the staff was just amazing. They met all my desires and more. Also compared to other vendors you get so much for what you pay for. All my guest had a blast and talked about it for days. Since many guest had to travel from all over the US it made a mini vacation for everyone. I'm so happy we picked the Bahia!!!

My husband and I were married here on September 22,2012. Lindsey B from catering was very helpful, accommodating, professional, and perfect leading up to the wedding. This venue offers a lot more than what the package says. My guest loved the ambience of Bahia Resort and the Del Mar Room. We had our ceremony in the pond area, and it was the most special moment of my life. Doug the bartender was amazing for catering to our group during the reception. We had such a great time.

Also I was planning this wedding from Nebraska, and Lindsey is def a go to girl to help get stuff done. The food was amazing and everyone raved over the desserts.

The Bahia was great to work with. We came in with a very large group to start of 450 guests. The Bahia was very easy to work with and they took there time will all my questions and requests. The room was absolutely gorgeous and the food was spectacular. Our guest could not stop ranting about the food and how great it was. The wait staff was incredible too, the fact that all 350+ guests were eating exactly at the same time was amazing and I was so impressed! I highly recommend The Bahia
