Stayed here for a week in April with my daughter and husband. We were in Block four so the furthest away from the main build. The hotel rooms are dated and in my opinion not as clean as they could be. I am a bit of a clean freak but I do expect hotel rooms to be spotless. honestly I...

We stayed in a second floor Bay side suite, with a very comfortable king bed, and a pull-out couch in the living room. Both rooms were spacious and quiet, and each had a flat screen TV and an AC unit. There was a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker in the wet bar area of the living room. We ate all...

I put 3 stars, or may be 3.5. Overall the location is great. I also think it's good for family vacation, especially the roomy setting. but it's kinda old. I'd say that sooner or later they have to renovate the front building or upgrade things inside. Anyway, it's a nice and more than ok resort.

We recently had our wedding at the Bahia Resort on the William D Evans and it truly was a fairytale wedding! The venue itself was so perfect for a romantic setting – everything from the gorgeous grounds where we took most of the pictures to the ambiance on the boat itself. What made our experience most memorable was everyone we...

My husband and I got married on the William D. Evans boat at the Bahia and we could not have been treated better. Where to start?! For the wedding part of things, the Bahia had great packages and options. The boat was so beautiful and special and the food far exceeded our expectations. We would have settled on mediocre food...

We stayed here for a week on a family vacation. Although the location was very convenient, the hotel itself needs major updating. I booked two rooms because of our family size. I also booked those rooms with kitchenettes because I planned on making some dinners in the rooms. When we arrived I was extremely disappointed. The first room smelled of...

The hotel and the surrounding areas are beautiful, the room service is always punctual if not early, and the rooms are so nice and comfortable.
