After reading the reviews we were a little nervous to go to this resort. We were happily surprised by the good service and beautiful beach. My five year old had a great time by the pool. The only recommendation to the hotel is to have better and more frequent activities for the kids. The restaurants were great and overall it... More

First, please see that we write many reviews and don't bash locations for no reason. We are honest people and appreciate good service, accommodations and exploring different locations/cultures. This was our first and last all-inclusive; we will bullet point our 5 day stay. (Including having our room broken into 2 hrs before we leave the resort) Resort: - Pretty entry... More

I just got back from this resort yesterday and i have nothing bad to say about it, other than the fact that one part of the beach was quite rocky. Other than that everything was really nice, the staff, the food, the pool, etc. I would definitely return if i could. They had fun activities organized at the pool and... More

I just returned from a week at this resort. The environment (beach, water, layout of resort) is excellent, however major issues with the service, especially considering this is rated as a 5-star resort. Firstly, be aware....there is an obvious 'theft' problem. Don't leave anything in your room unless it is locked in the safe! (and even that is questionable). I... More

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Bahia. Our top floor corner turret suite (all rooms are suites) captured a magnificent beach-front view. Our octagonal patio was larger than some rooms we've stayed in. Our seven day visit also included unlimited a la carte specialty restaurant reservations( booked from home in advance!), a private lounge serving premium drinks, private return... More

I just got back from our vacation and I have to say that the staff was outstanding. My husband and I eat out very often from elegant to casual dining restaurants. I am not used to receiving such great service in either. The staff went out of their way to be friendly and to make our dining experience pleasant. The... More
