We has a great relaxing weekend getaway for our 12th wedding anniversary. The hotel is probably the oldest of the Bahia Principe lines and could use a few upgrades. We didn't like the fact that they had actual keys for the room instead of cards. The rooms were spacious and clean. We tried riding the bikes which almost proved to... More

The staff at this hotel are very welcoming and work hard to get everyone involved especially John & Elizabeth. They have good food, down side is they dont take Canadian money but it is very easy to exchange you money so that is good.. The disco is only for 18+ but other than that it is very good.

This is the third grand Bahia hotel I have been to, having stayed at the Coba in Mexico and Runaway bay in Jamaica. I do believe my review would be better had I not visited those two first. Let's start with the positives. Rooms are fine, not a real top finish on them but spotlessly clean, perfectly good shower, air... More

This hotel is a good place if you are not looking for honeymoon kind of experience. It's a hectic -but cool- place. It was a fair stay for the price, but the rooms were a bit old for a 5* hotel. We had to change rooms twice until found one with ok air conditioning. Leocadio and Rigoberto were amazing helping... More

We spent the last week of July and first week of August at the resort and stayed in room 1311. The room was nice and quiet, and near the main pool, lobby and buffet restaurant. The room was cleaned and towels were changed daily and everything was always spotless. The fridge in there was a nice touch, especially as it... More

The place and the people need an overhaul. Some really nice people on the staff but new management have their work cut out to turn this around. Not all bad, just disappointing. Special call out to Elizabeth on the Animation Team, and Felix in the Sudan shop.
