For a four stars hotel, there were some details that have fallen short and that should be improved. For example, the hair dryer did not work or there was no shower gel in the bath. However the staff were very kind, the swimmimg pool is amazing, the rooms have plenty of space (but with an antique decor that should be... More

From the moment we arrived until the last minute of our stay the personnel of the hotel was very friendly and helpful. The room (suite) was very spacious for 2 people and what a view! From the 5th floor we looked over the Atlantic Ocean, the beach and the wonderful swimming pool. Everything was clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed... More

The suites are really big in Bahia Palace. The bathroom has shower and bathtub, two washbasins (!) and, or course, bidet. The gardens are marvellous, lots of hydrangeas and a fish pond in front of the hotel. Nice pool area with bar. Little church. If you want to marry, here is the perfect romantic scenery. It lies at the ocean... More

Our flight was canceled by SATA at 2:30 a.m. We were assigned to this hotel. We arrived somewhere between 3:30 and 4:30 a.m. The desk clerk was extremely helpful and kind. The morning staff reminded us that we were entitled to breakfast and lunch before returning to the airport. While it could use some updating, the hotel was very comfortable,... More

We really enjoyed our stay here! The outside of the hotel looks a bit dated, but we were told that it's going to be renovated later this year. The inside/lobby was decent and spacious. The staff was always ready to help us and answered any questions we had with a smile. They also gave us helpful tips about the must-see-things... More

We stayed at Bahia Palace from July 13 to July 21. We were greeted by hotel staff at the front desk and they all were cheerful offering any assistance we needed. My family group consisted of 9 adults and 4 children. We stayed in Junior suite rooms which were very spacious. The hotel staff worked very hard at making your... More

This looks like your typical resort hotel, on the beach, with a swimming pool, and large spacious rooms. Breakfast is great and they seem to alternate between two sets of hot food and even offer sparkling wine. The staff are all very nice and helpful. The pool is large and clean with plenty of lounge chairs around it. We got... More

This is a tired hotel in a beautiful location. I understand that it will be renovated soon but I don't think that forgives the owners for not replacing the stained carpets that look original. We stayed on the third floor with ocean views. The setting was beautiful but I was grossed out walking in the room and even down the... More

Bahia Palace has been my home base when I visit my native land. It’s in a quiet area and I always get a room facing the beach and the pool. I feel relaxed here. I can open the balcony doors and window and enjoy the prevailing west wind coming into the room. At night, the area is dark enough to... More
