Nestled in the heart of San Diego's Mission Bay, the Hyatt Regency Islandia is the closest resort hotel to SeaWorld and just minutes from all major attractions, such as Balboa Park, the world famous San Diego Zoo, Old Town, the Gaslamp District, Mexico and miles of scenic coastline.

The hotel is located 8 miles from downtown, 6 miles from San Diego's International Airport, 1/2 mile from SeaWorld and 15 minutes from almost every attraction in the San Diego area. You will enjoy a spectacular waterfront property adjacent to a full-service marina with views of tropical garden surroundings, and magnificent ocean, harbor, or city views. Steps from your door are lush gardens, manicured grounds and a full array of water sports. Activities include a sun-splashed heated pool, sport fishing and sailboat rentals or a relaxing massage in their Massage Therapy Center. The resort also offers easy access to activities such as tennis, golf, jogging and bicycle trails. Whisk away the cares of the day as you relax on one of the hammocks on the "Baja Beach" patio area or simply appreciate the tranquility of Koi Pond, located in the central courtyard of the hotel.
