“Simply Amazing”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Everything was fantastic. Great Service and the accommodations were to die for. Few pointers: Bring Bug Spray. Drinks are average out to be about $15-19. Breakfast was around $20. Lunch around $20 and Dinner around $40. There's not much to do out of the resort but the resort has everything you need to just simply relax.
The Resort reminds me of a Costa Rica resort in the middle of the jungle.
I recommend you bring some light snacks and maybe a few bottles of your favorite liquors.

We spend 5 days in the St. Regis Bahia Beach...Amazing Hotel...Extraordinary Service, friendly staff (we were not sure what to do and many employees gave us different places to visit and restaurants to go). I really enjoy my stay. Great Job for the bellman/valet parking staff that were always available to open door and assist in any possible way (smiling all the time), the front desk agent did an amazing job (super friendly, i can't remember her name), the pool, bar. Fern dinner was out of this World. We really enjoyed every single dish. Fern's manager took great care of us. I recommend this hotel, it's great for relaxing and to enjoy the view and the sound of the Coquis!!!!

Dear Guest,

Saludos from St. Regis Bahía Beach!

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts regarding your recent stay at our resort.

At St. Regis Bahia Beach we intend for our guests of all ages to enjoy the ‘art of living’.

Our staff is very genuine in their intention to enamor our valued guests and make you feel at home in our little slice of paradise. From creating tailor-made rituals, to our enchanting sounds of the 'Coquí', the tiny indigenous tree-frog of Puerto Rico, are all part of the acclaimed St. Regis experience.

We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you and your family back soon, to your home away from home, so that we may indulge you once again, in our tradition of extraordinary stays for the entire family.

Thank you for the gift of feedback.

Warmest regards,

We stayed at Bahia Beach for just 2 days prior to our cruise and almost wanted to cancel the cruise to stay here longer. The property is absolutely stunning, the beach is beautiful but the best part of our experience was our interaction with the staff. Each staff member made us feel welcome and were willing to assist us in any way. They even had a few birthday surprises planned for my husband who was celebrating his 50th birthday. We are both runners and were so impressed with all the running opportunities at the property. My only negative is I just feel the cost of the drinks are way too high. Having a cocktail while on vacation just makes you feel more on vacation - but it is hard to truly feel that way when you just paid $20 for a drink that will be a melting mess in 5 minutes. Regardless, this is a stunning property with warm, welcoming people. We will definitely be back. A special shout out to Carlos who works the lobby/bellman/arrival area. He was absolutely phenomenal!!!

Great drive up and grounds are beautiful. As staying at an establishment worthy of a 4-5 star rating I expect good service, clean room, etc. however, as reviews have read before mine, my room was never cleaned. The first night we found a large hair ball in the drain of the shower so I brought it to the attention of housekeeping. As sorry as Brandon (super of housekeeping) was as he sent wine, my room still went dirty. We kept watch of a pile of tortilla chips found under a chair and some kisses rappers to see how long it would take them to clean . We wrote "hi" on the dusty lamps too. He said they would do a thorough cleaning and to let him know. As I was on vacation I really don't want to check his work- just get it right . I had a camera set up in my room for personal security (belknet) he never came into my room to check his staffs work and they came in "on camera" to straighten only. I saw him everyday at the pool 3/5x a day hunting down unhappy guest as he did myself apologizing and giving favors but never a clean room - favors - so do you want a 8.99 bottle of wine or some old chips, hair balls, old cookies under the bed, old fingerprints everywhere doors and walls?? There's more to come

We recently considered this resort due to an advertisement my wife saw related to a supposed pet friendly hotel in Puerto Rico.

If you are considering this please think about it twice.

We stayed in the Hotel with our two dogs (Oreo a 4 lbs toy poddle and Benjamin a 16 lbs schnauzer), it was such a stressful exprience since we check inn. There were so many limitations starting from the fact that the dogs were not to be allowed in most (if not all) conditioned areas of the resort (even in the building where the reseception was located).

The most ridiculous rule was that pets were not allowed even in the surroundings areas of the swimming pool. To this my wife walked our dogs (leashed) through the beach and when she sat in a lounge chair located several meters away from the pool area, a well groomed Hotel attendant (could have been from the General Manager to the Chief Security Officer) apporoached her in a very disrespectful manner pointing her : "dont you know how to read english" (relating to the absurd documents the Hotel administration make you sign upon your inmediate arrival). This went on and on to the point that we could not wait to see the time to depart.

We have travel through out the World and have never see a thing like this. We do not have any children and Benjamin and Oreo have become our adopted kids, both our dogs have been rescued pets and we have spend many lovely times with them (where I assure you they are well tame and properly managed).

If you will be traveling without pets, the facilities are fine and from a general standpoint the Resort attendants and personnel are friendly.

On the other hand dont even consider this Hotel if you are travelling with your Pets.

We were very disapointed as we were expecting something much more progressive. The Hotel advertise that they have implemented a dog and cat adoption program, they in fact shelter some pets in a facility adjacent to the Resort and to that I give credit. But do not expect to be well treated when you are withnd the Hotel with your dogs.

Dear Distinguished Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to share with us your experience while staying at our resort.

Allow me to preface with an apology for your disappointment with regards to our pet policy.

As an animal lover and pet owner myself, I can certainly appreciate the passion you and your wife feel for your dogs, and the special bond which you all share.

Although there are certain limitations as to where pets are allowed, our property is blessed with almost 500 acres of pristine natural sanctuary, allowing vast areas, nature trails, boardwalks, and sun and shade, for you to walk and play with your precious companions. We do hope you will still return and discover what our so many guests and their cherished pets have truly indulged in.

Rest assured, your feedback has been shared with our team, in order to make sure that any shortcomings are handled appropriately.

We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you and your family back soon, so that we may treat you to the bespoke St. Regis experience you so deserve.

Thank you for the gift of feedback, and the opportunity to address your concerns.

We stayed here last summer and I can not wait to get back. I am angling for a September visit. It was just my husband & I on a romantic weekend. We flew in & drove ourselves t the resort. We were told we could get a lift but we prefered to explore a bit & get there when we felt like it, unfortunately, our flight was delayed & we had to navigate in the dark at 10pm at night. We found it with no problem though thanks to the GPS!
Reception was friendly & welcoming, even at the late hour. We were shown to our room which was incredibly spacious, with a fabulous private wood balcony, a very large tub that they will draw for you on request & luxury amenities in the bathroom from the Remède line.

They delivered a newspaper & french press coffee at a time of our choosing in the morning which was heaven to sit & drink on the balcony listening to the birds. They were prompt, pleasant & the coffee was hot. The furnishings were all high end, like new & very comfortable. I loved the decor so much I took excessive video & measurements to copy it in my dream home.

The pool was beautiful as well as designed & landscaped in a way to allow you to be social or stay secluded.

The front desk was very accommodating, providing us directions & information for when we decided to venture out and explore. Check out was expeditious & friendly.

Overall, I found the atmosphere perfect for a quiet, romantic getaway. I am hoping to return again very soon!

My daughter and I went to this hotel the last week in June. The property is magnificent! The room was beautiful with a shower that was huge! The people at the hotel were very kind and so pleasant. The beach and pool area was exquisite. One really needs to have a car as there are only two restaurants on the property. The price of the food is outrageous and after awhile, pretty boring. I would definitely return to this venue again.

Room Tip: Ocean front...although all the rooms are pretty spectacular.
