What a fantastic resort. It is huge and takes about 10-15 minutes to walk from one side of the the complex to the other so I would avoid if you have mobility issues but otherwise it is amazing. The rooms are incredibly clean and well kept by the maids. I have seen reviews about lack of towels and dirty rooms,... More

specialty dining is very difficult to get into. Room was not ready upon arrival, but other than that, we had a great time and found it to be very relaxing. Would go back again. One other thing, charging for use of the room safe was wrong and it made all of the guests we spoke with very upset.

The pool was okay but I saw some residue that resembled mildew. Not a huge deal but just saying. The pool bar and pool closes at 6pm. You aren't even able to swim at your own risk. Marcel and Jesse made great drinks and were very personable so it was a blast to be at the pool bar until it... More

We went to the Grand Bahia for our wedding.
