See What Guests Are Saying About Our San Diego Venues

"Andrea - on behalf of all the moms who attended our first SAN DIEGO RETREAT, I thank you!!!!! Everything was A+!! The accommodations, the breakfasts, the meeting room with a VIEW, everything! The grounds of your hotel are beautiful, sitting on the marina, and the ambiance was just perfect for a weekend of rest and respite. It was perfect! We cannot thank you enough and look forward to future retreats with you all. I hope we can make this an annual event, and hopefully bring more moms."

- Jessica, We Are Brave Together - 1/28/2020

"The professionalism and skills of the staff was demonstrated by the ease in which they managed our event. The rooms were beyond what was promised and each retreat attendee was well pleased. We want to return for 2020."

"Steve, I thought you would like to know that I received several emails and text messages with pictures throughout the weekend and today from the GMC team that stayed in your hotel. They loved it so much they didn't want to come home! They said one of the families in attendance were so excited to be there! Thank you for taking such great care of my clients! They can't wait to schedule next year's event. I hope to bring other groups there too! Thank you and have a great week!"

"From beginning to end, the staff at Island Palms collaborated as a team with our event coordinator. Any last-minute details were handled easily, and I needed a big favor that got done. Totally impressed! Your team is superb and accommodated as necessary. Please tell the Chef, the food was fantastic at the meetings and in the restaurant! We never left the property to eat because we were enjoying everything on the menu."

- Connie, ShopPros - 3/14/2019

"Our retirement party exceeded our expectations. You and your staff were instrumental in making the whole event an amazing experience for Gerry and I, as well as our guests. Everything that came after was icing on the cake. You made the planning of the party so seamless. You shared great ideas and were so responsive to our needs throughout the planning process. Your kindness and care absolutely relieved my party planning stress. Your staff was so attentive on the day of the party. The flow of the party was enhanced by everything they did, such as the smooth removal of the buffet after dinner and set up of our AV equipment for our game. Our guests loved the wonderful buffet. The food was fantastic. I appreciated the care of all your staff, and especially appreciated Amber, Antonio and the bartender. My husband and our guests could not stop sharing many positive comments. I am so happy we selected your venue for this most important event. Thank you so much for everything. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate the overall experience an 11. Everyone went above and beyond."

“On behalf of the GBTA Hotel Committee, Matt and I wanted to send our heartfelt thanks to each of you and your respective teams who helped make our meeting last week at the BW Plus Island Palms a huge success. We mentioned in our meetings several times that we had not had a nicer view than the one you provided us with. Wow! The hotel resort is very special and it was the perfect location for us to conduct our January meeting. The service, the staff and the overall hospitality really helped us be productive. San Diego is a great city and we cannot wait to return in August for the GBTA Annual Convention. Please extend our thanks, well wishes and kudos to the all those involved who helped make our meeting memorable.”
