Good for Mid-Range Vacations

First off, let me say that I did have an enjoyable vacation. My boyfriend and I were lucky enough to have some beautiful weather. The resort isn't bad in itself. It is incredibly large, and easy to get lost, but after a couple of days, you can get a sense of direction. The property is like a city (with all the combined sister resorts). - The buffet was a love/ hate scenario. The breakfast selection was FANTASTIC! Crepes, eggs and omelettes done at least 15 different ways, bacon, sausage, the whole fixings. It was my favourite meal of the day. What I didn't love about the buffet, is that it was cockroach central. If you are seated at the tables near the kitchen, there will be little cockroaches scurrying around on the floor, which means they're most likely in the kitchen as well. Before booking, I had noticed some negative reviews about upset stomachs and illnesses. Management had posted a response, stating it was travellers who just simply weren't used to the food down south, and it was because the travellers went from one extreme climate to the next. I believe (after spending a week there, and suffering food poisoning myself), that it probably has something to do with the cockroaches. I get that you can't have the Caribbean without cockroaches, but I believe this hotel is not spraying adequately. If they were spraying regularly, those little cockroaches I saw running around would not be happy and free. They would be dead. - the hostesses in the buffet were lovely. They were kind and polite and assisted us with finding a table. On our second last day, we were given a table and got up to get food. Another patron had taken our table, and refused to move. So we had the hostess seat us again. I placed my food on the table, and got up to get some coffee. I came back, and the waiter came over and asked us if we had ordered champagne. I said "no", and he promptly (and very rudely) told us to move. We explained that the champagne wasn't even there when we were seated (again), and he said it was "too bad" and that we still had to move. Unless you leave a tip every single time you eat at the buffet, the waiters will stop serving you beverages. - nobody told us that we needed to book reservations for the a la carte restaurants by 3pm. When we went to the lobby to book them, there was never any hotel reservation agents available at their desks. We had to wait 30 minutes on average. - the premium wifi is $79USD. That's ridiculous. It doesn't even reach the pool area near the beach. - the safe isn't included in your vacation price. It's an outrageous $4USD a day rental. When checking in, the front desk failed to tell us this. We went to the room, called reception and said our safe wasn't working. They didn't ask if we had paid for it. We waited 2.5hours, when reception said it would be 20 minutes until someone came out. When dealing with reception, the workers were always nice and pleasant, but their lack of knowledge and communication was frustrating. - housekeeping was awful. Typical hotel etiquette (including this hotels), is to drop dirty towels on the bathroom floor, so they can be replaced. Half the time we never got face cloths or hand towels. For a couple of days, housekeeping was actually picking up the face clothes (from the dirty floor) and putting them on the counter to dry (for us to use again!). One day, we weren't given pillow cases on our pillows. It was 11pm by the time we were heading to bed, and noticed then. We called reception, and they said housekeeping had gone home, but they would send us up a bed sheet to place over the pillows until morning. We waited 2hours, and reception had told us it was going to be 20 minutes. Instead we went to bed after pulling out a dusty sheet from the closet. - everyone here expects a tip, every single time. If you don't tip every time, eventually they start avoiding you and ignoring you. This is all the servers. The most pleasant staff were actually the bell boys, the gardeners and other maintenance staff. They were always smiling and tried to assist, even if they had limited English knowledge. Again, the vacation wasn't all bad. Was it worth the $1100? I guess. I think it was more the company I brought, and the other company that we met. I think that if you are looking for a mid range vacation, and don't mind bugging/ reminding staff about things, you'll enjoy this place.

Amazing hotel... crappy food

Stayed in 2 rooms in luxury esmerelda with 3 adults and 2 teens. Super close to beach and 2 awesome pools. Everything about the hotel rooms, staff, grounds, pools, beach was amazing. One issue... the food sucked. No matter what buffet or a la carte we went to, food was awful. Only exception was breakfast - fresh made omelette, juice and pastries. Once we got over the disappointing food, we had a great time. So many staff, super clean everywhere ( they mop the sidewalks), great trolley system to get around, beautiful lobbies, lots to do and see, comfy beds, big bathrooms with jacuzzi tub and separate shower, nice balcony. Super helpful, friendly and accomodating staff (expect most to speak little or no English - but still managed to get everything we needed). New resort 'Fantasia' looks spectacular. Our favourite spot to hang out at night. Went over Christmas and had a great family vacation.

Great experince

As the title says. We upgraded to the royal golden and were in the first villa and second room back number 1205. there were two other rooms better in the entire resort in my opinion. The room was clean great service and any small issues were promptly addressed by nice and kind staff. The huge showers were awesome. the tubs had jets as well although admittedly i didn't even try it... This resort is massive but has trolly cars that run every 5 minutes to take you where you want to go. The buffets were amazing... lots of choice and very tasty food... I did several a la cartes my absolute favorite was the mediterranean...which was also right outside my building.

WOW! Tropical Paradise!!!

Service at the Grand Bahia was amazing!! Food was delicious, drinks were flowing, the people were just wonderful!!! Amazing week! Being a very active person, my only downfall here is the lack of a gym/fitness facility... Now, there is a gym, a very small gym with free weights, a cable machine, a couple of benches and a bunch of exercise bikes.... Not even a treadmill! Mind you, running every morning around the hotel grounds was refreshing... But a bigger space with more equipment would make this hotel perfect for me. Some healthy choices were available at the buffets which was amazing! Overall, it was a wonderful relaxing week in paradise... Can't wait to come back!
