  • I will start and end this review with the same comment..."I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE DANA ON MISSION BAY!" My now wife and I selected The Dana to host our fusion wedding that incorporated both the Hindu and Christian wedding ceremonies, and we nor our guests were disappointed with the accommodations. Aside from the great location, new facilities, free activities, and everything else that comes along with a nice resort, I wanted to highlight just a few reasons why I recommend this venue: **Communication – Cannot stress this one enough. The Sales Director (our Point of Contact) at the venue was one of the most professional and responsive contacts of any of our vendors. And for being the actual venue, this alleviated a lot of stressing knowing that she would always be there. And when she was not available, the other Sales Director was not only just as responsive, but also just as well up-to-date with our wedding where we didn’t skip a beat. I never had to re-explain anything, and... Read more

  • My husband and I had our wedding at The Dana on Mission Bay this past January and it was absolutely PERFECT!!! The venue itself is gorgeous. Our ceremony was on the sunset lawn and the view of the bay and the palm trees was breathtaking. Our guests loved the scenery so much. Besides having our wedding at a gorgeous venue, it all wouldn’t have been possible without our venue coordinator Christina Gold. She worked so cohesively with all of my other vendors and my day of coordinator that the day was seamless. She was so quick to respond throughout the whole process, which as a busy bride, I appreciated so much. She helped execute our vision and made it come to life. The catering was absolutely delicious and everyone loved our plated entree selections and tray passed appetizers. Highly recommended The Dana for your future wedding venue!!

  • Choosing The Dana on Mission Bay for our wedding was the absolute best decision we could have made. The venue is BEAUTIFUL and affordable, compared to other Southern California locations. Christina is phenomenal and basically acts as your own personal coordinator (even though a day of coordinator is required, which is totally worth it, FYI!). The venue grounds are so beautiful and they only hold 1 wedding at a time, therefore, you have access to the entire venue for your wedding for pictures, etc. You can seriously not go wrong choosing this location for your dream day! I wish I could go back and do it all over again!

  • Christina Gold and the powerful team behind her are the real jewels surrounding this venue. Having to plan a wedding from overseas presented enough challenges as it was, looking at a million venues online and then short listing it down to 10 for my fiancé to check out was stress enough but after viewing the Dana (venue number 3) we looked no further! Firstly the Dana’s location was ideal – tucked away by the ocean, near a harbor, gorgeous and picturesque landscaping, a view of the sunset, and great options for a reception both indoors or outdoors …5 stars with that alone. Christina was extremely professional and knew how to promote this place. Having her on board was like having a second wedding planner all included. The look on my fiance’s place after the first viewing said it all and of course the name being similar to mine felt like a sign from above! The Dana’s service was exceptional, their package offerings and pricing were all inclusive and second to none, the food wa... Read more

  • We held our son and his fiancé's wedding rehearsal dinner in The Marina Garden at The Dana on Sept. 28, 2018. After visiting several venues, we could not have been happier to have chosen The Dana. Adrienne, Christina and all the staff were incredible. They had great suggestions, accommodated us at every turn, adhered to our wishes on certain things, the food was VERY good (many of our guests commented on it), and the service before, during and at the end of the evening was outstanding. Everyone was very easy to work with, always expeditiously responding to our communications, and just all in all made this a very stress-free occasion. The staff serving the appetizers and assisting with the dinner, along with the bartenders were so helpful and ready to assist wherever needed. We would highly recommend The Dana on Mission Bay for any upcoming events you may have.

  • My husband and I are a bi-coastal couple and once we chosen San Diego for our wedding location, we were searching reception venue after reception venue for the "just right" feel/essence that is San Diego. The Dana on Mission Bay was it! It is perfectly located on Mission Bay and was very close to other San Diego attractions that our out of town guests can get to. Every single guest that arrived for our wedding loved The Dana on Mission Bay. The complete aesthetics of The Dana on Mission Bay was absolutely perfect and I was in love. We initially had booked and worked with Adrienne, who was very pleasant from the get go. We had no issues with Adrienne, who was professional and friendly, and who went over the top for her customers. We had moved back east for a brief period, and even with that transition, Adrienne was wonderful ensuring things were handled even 3000 miles away. Upon moving back to San Diego, we were introduced to Christina, who also was wonderful & professional. How... Read more

  • The Dana is amazing. They are the best venue you could ask for. Besides the waterfront location and the beautiful banquet room, the staff is friendly, accommodating, serving, caring and genuinely nice! The first person we met there was setting up the banquet room and he left such an impression of professionalism and care for what he was doing (other venues in this area threw the tables around during set up and didn't even vacuum). It says a lot that he also got married there! The next person we met there was so kind and accommodating. She showed us all around the property and walked us through the packages while we ate there. Then, we met with the catering director. She also was friendly, outgoing and super personable, willing to work with us on what we had in mind for our special day. They stayed on top of communicating with us, negotiating well and continued to present the venue in the best possible light one could ask for. The owners do a good job with creating a team that works tog... Read more

  • We are thrilled about our experience planning, and pulling off without a hitch, our son and daughter in law's wedding at the beautiful Dana! The flawless ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were beyond our expectations! Adrienne, the Director of Catering, was easy and professional to work with. Her ideas were welcomed, her communications were timely, and even when we wanted to add some last minute market lighting to the ballroom, she helped make it happen! Everything was absolutely gorgeous and I can't think of a better setting in San Diego than would have been better than the Dana for our joyous wedding. Bravo Dana! Bravo!!!

  • Having our wedding at The Dana was an absolute dream. We had looked at several other venues before selecting The Dana but there was something different about the venue -- not only is it in a beautiful location, but the team and coordinator's on site were so friendly, easy-going and accommodating from the very beginning. We had a unique wedding set-up at The Dana and Adrienne was always so helpful and flexible as far as answering questions and bending every which way to make sure we could make our visions become a reality. Planning the wedding with Adrienne was such a fun process because she was always willing to work with us and she seemed just as excited as we were about all of our plans. She was always responsive, flexible and kind and every time we met with her, we became more and more reassured that we had chosen the perfect venue. Our wedding day was everything we could have wanted. All of the staff at The Dana were professional and friendly and we could not be happier with ... Read more

  • After lots of research my husband and I decided The Dana on Mission Bay was the perfect venue for us to have our wedding ceremony and reception at. On our first meeting we met with the Director of Catering, Adrienne Hur. Immediately we liked her and she was able to assist with all our questions. During our second visit we got the opportunity to meet the Sales Manager, Caitlin Mincer. Caitlin helped us throughout the rest of the wedding planning. Caitlin and Adrienne helped me so much along the way with all the planning that I can’t express how happy I was with their services. Even the last two weeks before the big day Caitlin was there to answer even my smallest and silliest questions.The Dana is the perfect venue to celebrate your marriage. The team is great and the venue and resort is beautiful. All of our out of town guests were impressed with the resort. Oh yea, did I mention they also gave us a 2 night stay at the hotel. We loved everything about The Dana... the food, the servic... Read more

  • We truly had an amazing wedding experience at the Dana. From planning the wedding w/ Addy Hur, to the actual event w/ David Hopper our Captain for the evening, to our bar tender Patty Rainsville the experience couldn't have been any better. Everyone at the hotel seems to love where they work and it truly shows. Each person we encountered went above & beyond to make all of us feel special. The only issue we had was that the food was not very hot when it was served, but we did have a late afternoon to evening wedding outside in December - so we can't complain to much. It was still very good! A wonderful experience.

  • We were so happy with our choice to hold our wedding at the Dana. It's a gorgeous venue, perfect for a couple who loves an outdoor setting right on the water, with both the bay on one side and the marina on the other. We took full advantage by holding our ceremony on the sunset lawn and our reception in the marina garden. Everything looked amazing, and the staff did a great job with setup. The food was amazing, and we got tons of compliments. It's a great value for the setting! Catering manager Adrienne Hur did an excellent job and we were very happy working with her.
