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.

We have been coming to this resort for many (close to 20) years. We still love it. The location is very convenient to mission bay, Sea World, and mission beach. Love the pool and hot tub and still enjoy playing ping pong.
We finally broke the decade old Las Vegas Tahiti Village tradition and went to The Dana on Mission Bay in San Diego. Wow, the view is breathtaking at sunset. Plenty to do at the hotel and minutes away from everywhere. Since they are a dog friendly establishment Smorg got to go and did he have a blast. We will return with fam in tow.
