“Beautiful resort but some issues”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

This is a breathtaking resort. It has a beautiful pool and the beach near by in gorgeous. I would definetly stay here again. The only problems that arose from our stay was that the bugs were pretty bad. We had to buy bug spray from the resort and cover ourselves before going outside each time. The resort did have some strange rules and had several rules that if broken the guest would be charged 25%. Luckily the rules were pretty easy to obey but some seemed a little much, like returning the TV remote before check out. The resort is right next to salt flatts and it smells like sulfur and its not very pleasant at first but eventually the smell seems minor compared to the beautiful view. You can't swim in the beach in front of the resort because it has several jelly fish and was not very clean water but you are able to rent kayaks to explore the ocean. Lastly, the address for the resort did not show up on my GPS. The only way we found the place was because the rental car place gave us turn by turn directions because he had stayed there previously. Without his directions I dont know how we would have found it. It was an easy drive though from San Juan and the cute little towns around the resort were very nice and the people are friendly. The service from the waiters at dinner was amazing and the food was AWESOME! We chose to eat at the resort every night because he kept wanting to try more food from there. We stayed here for our honeymoon and it was great. We did stay during the off season so there were very few guests at the resort but they said that between june and August and November-April is their busy time and there is much more action during those times. I would definetly recommend a stay at Bahia Salinas.

the hotel has an amazing view of the water, the pools are nice, the staff are super friendly! and the food was amazing! I think the rooms are in need for update and it seems like they gotten good use out of them, and the bathrooms are in need for renovation, over all I was happy with the hotel and the restaurant. oh and to add to the location it's near Cabo Rojo Light house! the beach was amazing! white sand, clear water.

Room Tip: anywhere! I would suggest to leave your room temp cool to keep other creators from coming in.

Beautiful, peaceful, good restaurant, infinite pool, i enjoyed this stay from the start to the end. One of the best Puerto Rico beaches, playa sucia us nearby plus the Cabo Rojo lighthouse. Plenty of sight seeing and good food "frituras " to enjoy. The only downside is the mosquitoes at the end of the afternoon, but we fixed that with "Off".The place is just so beautiful!

Amenities:

* Great pool with naturally warm water
* Kayake rental
* Bike rentals

Management:

Friendly staff although they changed management.

The place needs:

* Room service

Nearby Attraction:

Strategically located next to the salt mines (playa sucia=the dirty beach), the bird wildlife preserve, playa limpia (the clean beach), and el faro (the lighthouse). With tunes of biking and hiking trails. The resort itself is magical with the insight Resturant, beautiful infinity pool that looks like it falls off into the ocean and lots of gazebos for outside rest and relaxation. Room was up dated and clean!!! Was there in September which is the off/down season so basically had the resort to oursleves. Only issue was the mosquito!!! They were so many, even the front office sold off. Worst at night. Don't know if that is typical. But the off seemed to hold them off ok.

Such a pleasure to stay there! Thank you for your help at the time of reservation and at our arrival for guiding us how to get to the resort from the highway (our GPS was useless many times while driving in PR). Loved our room overlooking very nice infinity pool and the bay. The sunset was incredible- don't miss it anybody! Nearby Sucia Beach is called most scenic beach- with gorgeous water color and white sand, lighthouse, cliffs, natural bridges, beach caves to explore! And at the end- food in the restaurant-the breakfast and dinner- is very good-we truly enjoyed :) Definitely we will come back to stay at Bahia Salinas!!
