The food was very average, even in the "a la carte" restaurant. Almost no exotic or local food served, very american style. I was a lot disappointed by the room cleaning, couple of bugs, cockroaches and spiders. The waiters in general were not smiling nor really friendly. Still polite but that's was it. Came across a security guard on my...

We just returned from a stressful vacation here. Very dissatisfied with many elements of the resort. We did not get the room we paid for. Had to stand in line to complain and this was on a daily basis. No hot water, issues with the toilet and uncomfortable bedding. You need a translater if u want to lesson your frustration....

My husband and I just returned from a horrible stay at the bahia. I read all these positive reviews and wonder if it was the same place. Can't be. The place we stayed at was clearly not run well.

Upon check in I requested to extend my reservation an extra day I planned for 5 days and I still wanted to spend 5 days. They...
