The Bahia hotel is located in the 'second row' of hotels, it is behind
a huge newer resort which is right on the beach. Our room was
completely renovated very recently (probably in the course of the work
some earlier reviewers suffered from), it was so clean it seemed
possible we were the first to ever use it. The room was very spacious
and very pleasant, with a view onto the pool. A stove (with oven),
sink, fridge as well as plates, glasses and silverware were all
provided. Beds were very comfy (two king size, I would say), A/C was
working very well.
We made the trip to the beach (maybe 50 yards) and ended right in the
center of Medano Beach. Some will probably like the extremely 'active'
scene with hundreds of vendors, loud music, beach games etc but for us
it was way too much. But it seems that the beach becomes more quiet if
one moves a bit away from this.
When we came back, there was no power in the room. We asked at the
reception and they said that the whole block had lost power and it
would be back soon. We left to have dinner and when we came back,
power was still not back on (only one emergency light in the room). We
waited some time and, indeed, the lights came back on but not the A/C;
the room was pretty warm by now. It was 10pm and the reception said
that they did not know when A/C would come back. They offered to move
us to another hotel and when I asked where, the operations manager
told me 'the Marriott, two blocks away.' Expecting we would be in a
Marriott hotel on the beach two blocks away, we packed our bags again
and a cab brought us to the new hotel. It turned out to be NOT a Marriott
hotel but a 'Fairfield Inn by Marriott,' a business hotel far from the
beach, in fact right on Mexico Highway 1. There was absolutely nothing
wrong with the hotel, it was completely new and ultra-clean but not
what we expected for a beach vacation. And, although the cafeteria at
my place of work is run by 'Sodexho Marriott' I would not tell a
visitor that we are going to have lunch 'at the Marriott' when I take
him or her to have lunch in the cafeteria. So I felt misled by the
promise to be moved to a Marriott close-by.
Also, I suppose the Fairfield Inn did not expect to use the room that
night so when we entered the room, the A/C was off and the temp was
close to ninety (the thermostat said 30C). So we turned on the A/C and
fled to the lobby. At 1.30am the temperature in the room was bearable
(upper seventies, thermostat said 24C) and we finally went to
sleep. With all that, when we got up the next morning, the breakfast
was finished so I went without breakfast (I did not trust the small
place next door but my wife and son ate there and they were fine).
We packed our bags again and took a cab back to the Bahia where our
car was valet-parked. Our decision to ask to be moved turned out to be
very good, they told us the A/C was off for all of the night, and some
rooms were still without A/C. The hotel staff was very apologetic and
reimbursed us the cab expenses without problems. We retrieved our car
and left, since we had booked another hotel in San Jose for the
Overall, this was certainly not a perfect experience, I would say
actually quite poor. I cannot give with good conscience a 'very good'
or better rating here.
On the other hand, except for the misrepresentation of the 'Marriott'
hotel, the Bahia hotel staff handled the situation rather well. Given
the very nice impression we had before the power outage, and assuming
that the power outage may not have been their fault, I consider this
an 'average' experience.
