Guayarmina Princess v Bahia Princess

Hi there,

Does anyone have a reason to favour one over the other. I think they are next to each other but is one better located for beach, bars etc... and so more convenient. I also notice one is classed as 4* whilst the other 5*, any glaring reason for this ?

Also does anyone know if you can take lunch on the half board option instead of an evening meal as we prefer to try a range of restaurants and go out of an evening. If these hotels do not allow that does anyone have recommendations to hotels that do ?

I would also be open to recommendations to other hotels, we are a couple in our late 30's looking for a relaxing break with some evening entertainment (that does not have to be hotel based)

Thanks for any help

Have stayed in both

The Guayarmina is 4 star the Bahia 5 star

Guayarmina is nearer the beach but only just. The Bahia is behind the Guayarmina so they are both in more or less the same place.

The Bahia is generally better in all areas than the Guayarmina and I would definatley pick the Bahia although they are both good.

Not sure about lunch instead of evening meal as we eat lunch out and had our evening meal at the hotel and it was very good at both.

Pick the Bahia you can't go wrong

Thanks Dave. Only reason I would change is we like to go out of an evening and try different restaurants etc.... So having the option of lunch would be ideal.

The prices quoted seem good at present so even if we did not eat in each evening it still seems worth it

Hi Manxtravellor

Most {if not all hotels} will allow you to have the choice as to having lunch or the evening meal on a HB basis. Ifthe hotel is like the one in Puerto we use all they do is take your room number off the master list when you go in for your meal, that way if you choose to have the lunch one day your room number would not appear on the evening meal and the other way round if you snack at lunchtime and at least {unlike AI} it will give you the freedom to enjoy other eating places on the island :0)

Hope this helps

Guayamina will do you a picnic lunch instead of your evening meal as long as you tell them the day before. We have just come back from the Guayamina and loved the rooms, the food, the staff and the location. In fact just loved it full stop. Havent stayed at the Bahia so cant comment on that one
