Just got back from my first all inclusive ever. This one was chosen for us by the wedding party.
As much as I thought I would hate it, I couldn't. The place was so big, I was overwhelmed at first and thought I could dislike it. However everything went perfect.

By the second day, I felt comfortable and by the third day decided I was blessed to have been to this resort for my first all inclusive. Our room was perfectly clean and everywhere was. I was surprised to two flies the entire time and no bugs anywhere, can't say that about anywhere I have been in the states.
I rarely drink, but I made up for the calories in food and was happy to eat delicious sea food almost every night. I am not a pool user, but the rock barrier outside our condo was a perfect place to snorkel until my wife and I could sign up for some snorkeling tours. I just don't know if I could pick another resort. I would be afraid it could not meet the standards I just experienced.
Thank you Grand Bahia. This was my wife and I's first time away from our four young kids in 17 years. Next time won't be so long!
Google or get a map of the grounds from an agent. I don't believe they assign certain rooms, bu...
