Good Life Resorts properties are like nothing else that you will find in San Diego. We rented the sanctuary property for my wife's baby shower which had about 70 people in attendance and was the perfect venue. The staff is extremely attentive and easy to work with. We had a huge smoke oven barbecue brought to cater on site, Disney characters, and a full bar set up with plenty of space to spare.

 I recently organized an 18-person bachelor party at the Beach Village property, and I'm happy to say it was an overwhelming success! Common space provided loads of room for us to alternate between relaxing and partying. All said, I would highly recommend Good Life Resorts for your bachelor/ette party needs!

"My husband and I could not have been more happier with this venue. All our guests thought it was the coolest place/ set up for a party. Everyone had so much fun with all the games they had set up in the sand. There was around 50 people who came and we still had plenty of space to move around. We totally recommend this place for anyone considering it!"

"Fantastic space, a lot of seating and places to play games. Also, a lot of counter space and a good size cooler. We had catering and they were able to set up easily along the bar. Plenty of parking available as well. For reference, we had 30-35 guests in the space. Would recommend and would book again."

"The Bamboo Garden Lounge is fantastic. Several of my guests ask how I found this place. Plenty of room, seating arrangements and options were very accommodating. (Couch, long bench tables, high table) Very private, and although this place is located on a main busy street, once inside, you'd think you were on vacation somewhere. Very nice. I'll likely be back."

We had a wonderful going away party here. We had a taco caterer come and cook onsite and had about 30 people. The staff was so easy to work with and very nice! I would 10/10 recommend this place to anyone.

I can't say enough good things about this space and my experience booking it. The process was seamless and Joshua and Scot were extremely communicative and helpful. My daughter's sweet 16 party was a smashing success due to the beauty and feel of the space. I would not hesitate to book this space again for an event - it's truly amazing!

Jordan

October 2023 

Threw my 30th birthday party here and it was AMAZING. The space is really clean and big. We probably had between 30 and 40 people show up and there was still PLENTY of space for tons more people. Joshua's team was professional and showed us how everything worked. The only thing that was a little weird was that the space wasn't completely private. The people renting the units were still able to walk through the space, even though there was a sign for the private event, and some people ended up staying for the party (which I didn't mind at the end of the day) . Overall would highly recommend.

The venue is remarkable, especially for the cost. Josh and his team took excellent care of our group and it ended up being a magical night for my friend's 30th birthday party. My only note is that there are guests that may sometimes walk through to get back to their airbnb but they were all respectful. There was one person we had to ask to leave but he was understanding luckily. This venue would be excellent for anyone who needs a great bar space. The sandpit was great for our party which was Barbie Beach theme, but I could see the venue working for just about any type of party! Especially tropical themes. Thank you Josh for being a great host and making sure we had everything we needed!!!

I booked this space for my daughter’s sweet sixteen birthday party. Everyone had a great experience and our guests were all very pleased by the cuteness and exotic warm vibes of the Good life Beach space. Josh and Scott are exceptionally kind and flexible, available and super easy to work with. They fully participated in the success of our party. I would definitely recommend this space to anyone looking for a safe and exotic environment for their party.
