The Dana is perfect for families who want to be as close as possible to SeaWorld. Though guests can easily walk to it, shuttle service is available to the park. Shuttles also go to the airport and the cruise ship terminal. Sometimes, the hotel offers discount tickets to nearby attractions, like the San Diego Zoo. At Dana, guests enjoy a waterfront location on Mission Bay that is within walking distance to the beach. The hotel has two pools and a private marina. Families can watch a “Dive-In Movie” at the Tropical Pool. A kids’ water sports camp is available during the summers and bicycle rentals can be arranged at the front desk. The Dana provides dining options in its fine dining Firefly Restaurant and its casual Blue Pearl. Rooms and suites at the hotel are built in three-story buildings, and present views of the bay. Units feature kitchenettes with refrigerators and microwaves.

This is a beautiful resort I didn't know what to expect but my family and I enjoyed this place. My room was great.. big shower the bedroom was a nice size the bed very comfortable and cozy I felt safe plenty to do and see.
Great time. Hotel could not have been nicer. Desk staffers Enrique and katy went all out, as did servers ubba, and marco. Had a great time. Will be back as often as possible. Everything about the hotel was beautiful, except bring your own nondairy creamer to the restaurant.
