Couples Getaway

Overall this resort exceeded my expectations. The hotel lobby, bars, bathrooms, suites, restaurants, buffets, were all extremely clean. Always someone cleaning something. The food at this resort was second to none. The Jazmine Buffet was worth the visit. We did a couple of the restaurants which were good as well but the selection and ease of going to the buffet was awesome. Loved the food and staff there. The pool area on the luxury side was great, however, the swim up bar could use improvement with regards to number of servers. There was usually only one person there, that wasn't enough. The beach area on the luxury side is not attractive so we didn 't tan or swim there, we went to the other side of the resort for the beach. The staff at the resort are absolutely amazing, and to name all the great people that helped make our stay even more enjoyable are too many. The bartenders in the main luxury lobby tho, Tavin and Jason, great guys! The check in was a little slow, our room wasn't ready when we got there although we did arrive a little before the 3pm check in but, we didn't not get to go to the room until 4:30 so they could improve in this area. Drinks offered are amazing. Nightlife is very dull on the luxury side, shows not that exciting or interesting. The disco music could improve but great atmosphere. Had a somewhat disappointing experience at the Japanese style restaurant. We had a booking for 830 but because there wasn't enough people for the table show we didn't get to sit in until 930. We also felt the "show" was rushed because it was so late. Food was delicious but I would recommend booking an earlier sitting just because I feel where we were so late eating the dining was rushed. As I said, this was an amazing resort overall and would recommend it to anyone, great people and exceptional food! More>

Short Couple Getaway

We just returned from a 4 night stay at this hotel. There were many things we really liked but there were just as many that we did not. As many have mentioned, the rooms are beautiful We were in building 25 on the 5th floor with a lovely view. We never had any problems with mosquitoes but 2 couples we met on the first floor complained about getting quite a few bites. We did notice that the halls are very noisy. You can hear everything as people walk by so we were grateful our hall wasn't overly busy. I would not have wanted to be in a room on one of the halls off the lobby as they were the cut through to the pool and quite busy. We would have liked to try the room service but our phone did not work for the entire stay and neither did the courtesy phone in the hall. We had no problem with the wifi in the room. Overall we were very pleased with our room and loved the view from the balcony. The main buffet is good with lots of choices. There were different themes each night although, with the exception of the seafood night, the offerings were pretty much the same. We ate at the buffet every breakfast and supper with the exception of one. We managed to get a la carte reservation only on our last night at 8:30. That was the only one available even though we went to the reservation desk immediately after registration. I had emailed ahead but was told we needed to wait until we arrived. We were disappointed as we had hoped to at least try one other and maybe not so late. The one we did try though, Picasso, was good. We went to the jerk chicken restaurant every day for lunch and that was great. Without exception all the staff in the restaurants we interacted with were fantastic. We were there for some relaxation so we headed over to the quiet pool. The main pool looked like fun if you that is what you were looking for but for our short trip we were not. We found we had to get up fairly early to reserve a cabana as many (over half) of them were taken by the non Luxury guests. A couple of times during the day there were kids in the pool. There were staff and a life guard around but no one said anything. We did venture to the Luxury beach one afternoon but there was a very large group with a loud speaker going. Many people besides ourselves headed back to the pool. This hotel has potential but still has a way to go. I would not call this hotel a 'true' adults only, luxury experience like the others we have been to in Mexico. With the exception of one a la carte and one buffet the restaurants are shared with the family side, children were in the Luxury quiet pool and the non-luxury guests had no problem using many of the facilities that were reserved for the luxury customers. We had a good trip, met some wonderful people and had a chance to relax but we would not return to this hotel. More>

Check In Was a Nightmare

We were very disappointed with the check in procedure, first the people staying on the other side of he resort (Regular Bahia Principe) were checked in on the bus in the parking lot of the airport. All us Luxury side people sat and waited for this process to take place and it wasn't quick. We dropped them off first and then the bus continued to the Luxury side, somehow my husband's luggage got taken off the bus at the other side and when we questioned to where it was we were told to go retrieve ourselves due to security reasons. We then sat in the lobby of the hotel while we got checked in. For us upgrading to the luxury side it didn't seem like we got luxury service. When we got to our room we found out our phone didn't work and our patio door didn't lock and our room was on the ground floor so having a locking door was an important thing. We went down to the front desk to ask for another room and we were told that wasn't possible. Other guests that were on our bus were being taken to rooms that wee already occupied or they were dirty. It was very disappointing. We had friends arrive the next day and they were in Building 26 and their phones worked, we wee in building 25 and ours didn't, so we had no way to contact them all week long except to go knock on each others doors. We had room service but no way to call from our room. They told us there was a courtesy phone down the hall from our room that we could use to call room service, not what we paid for. We would not recommend this resort as a five star luxury that is for sure. We were very disappointed. More>

25th anniversary trip

We took a Delta Vacation trip where air, transportation, and hotel. Transportation works great that way! I emailed early and requested Ala cartes, anniversary decorations and feather pillows. I received a response back that hotel would accommodate. But, all was missed except flowers and treats in the room. Hotel and beach was huge. Luxury spoils you. I would not go normal level. We asked 3 or 4 times for diffuser in room which never showed up. Ala cartes were all good. Don Pablo and Rodezio spoiled us. Guests were fun. Hotel phone in room didn't work 5 out of 8 days. We were told system issues. All in all, good trip. If I want true luxury, I would go back to Barcelo Palace... More>
