After reading some of the negative reviews, we were a bit apprehensive about staying at Bahia Mar. We're Hilton Honors members and are used to getting preferential treatment at the Hilton properties. Still, we were pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Yes, it's a bit outdated but the location more than makes up for it. The beach overpass is priceless and the pool area was clean and well appointed. We stayed in room 1610 at the tower. The bathroom fan was extremely loud and was making so much noise, we didn't think we'd get any sleep. We had a very nice engineer come in take a look but he didn't know how to fix it. However, it magically stopped making noise right before we went to bed, although it resumed during the day. The housekeeping was disappointing. Our room didn't get cleaned and we ended up just asking for some fresh towels. Also, the roll-away bed was extremely uncomfortable.
Otherwise, the room was adequate, and the view was amazing. We made no special requests prior to checking in but still ended up with a marina/ocean view room. Thanks, front desk!
All in all, a great value hotel. Given the location, you can stay in one of the more posh and modern hotel but be prepared to pay at least a double for it.
