Hi Dexter007

We're off to the Bahia Golden Club on Thursday - I'm not sure what to ask but I'd love to know exactly what the Golden Club is all about exactly, what's included, what's the best building to stay in (and the worst, if you know).

Also, what is the water like at the beach? Is the water rocky, weedy or sandy? Water rough or calm?

I would appreciate any and all details, as I'm sure others on this list would!!

Thanks,

ldarcy

Hi again!

One more thing - what's the weather like in the evening? Do we need jackets or sweaters during or after dinner?

Thanks again!!

We are two couples from Edmonton that got back two weeks ago. Golden Club is worth it, we payed very little extra but were sure glad that we got it! Beach towels in your room is nice, no card to exchange or towels to keep track of, room service, some say is too slow...in the morning yes why wait, but at night when watching a movie....I can wait 30 minutes!

Resort is beautiful, brand new. Rooms are VERY nice and clean. No real "nightlife" at the resort at all. Who cares, after a big breakfast and a long day at the pool and beach, followed by a shower and a nice sit down dinner......fart sack time.

Everyone has a differnt opinion on the restaurants, two tips....don't overdress...many people are pretty casual (pants for men) but that's it, and two....don't expect The Keg. Food is good and you have to keep in mind where you are. The staff think we are millionares, so to critize the food is akin to being pompous. It's totally edible. No real concerns at all, relax.

One last tip....hopefully not too many people read this and ruin it.....skip the "transfer" to the resort. A cab is $24, gets you there at least 15 minutes quicker, you get checked in without any lineup or wait at all! we were checked in and unpacked, sipping a cool drink in the lobby

BEST $12 I ever spent.

Try it! I will be in Calgary on Thursday doing Sales Calls, and I will be thinking of each and every one of you "lucky" buggers.

Have fun!
