My family stayed here for four nights and we wouldn't change a thing. We toured around Costa Rican beaches and found ourselves wanting to go "home" where we would always be greeted by name. We visited Playa Flamingo (very American and built up), Tamarindo (fun to visit but way to touristy for our liking), Playa Grande (beautiful) Playa Avellena (Lola's a must see). The service at the Bahia was extremely attentive and surpassed any smaller issues on which other reviews have focused. We had an extremely private and spacious 2 room suite with a full kitchen, a large living area and a separate balcony seating area. This suite is perfect for a family - The hotel brought in a cot for our family of five. Marvin was constantly checking up on us and making sure our every need was met. He would even bring us iced waters (tap) without our asking to make sure we stay hydrated. Marvin and Leo also make delicious mojitos! You do not need bottled water in costa rica! The rooms were not four seasons quality but your not paying four seasons prices. We never had to worry about reserving a chair by the beach/pool and the beach was extremely private. We ate dinner here twice and both times were delicious, as was the breakfast. Anytime my kids finish their meals......I know it's a testament to the restaurant. We definitely plan on coming back here for another vacation.
