    If you don't speak Spanish don't come here!

    We have been to Bahia Principle in Mexico and Jamaica. The food, the drinks and the service A+. We never had to pay extra for top shelf alcohol and we ate any of the buffets on the resort. Service: Communication with the company Coming2 and our “free” transportation. Our flight was delayed due to the storms and half of our party was stranded. I called several times and the phone either rang and rang. When answered by a Spanish speaking woman and then to be only to be hung up on. When I finally got a person she was rude and said we missed our time and we could not reschedule. My husband and daughter had to pay $45 for a taxi. I told her the rest of the party, 3/5 people is coming the following day and she still would not reschedule despite the 24 hour notice. I called the hotel and was told that we would have transportation. The next day we had to pay for Coming2 to transport us to Bahia, because they had no record of the change. I showed the agent my multiple calls to their "emergency" line, which he recognized himself while scrolling through my called list. He said this wasn't the first time he heard this complaint and would make a note, but we still had to pay $35! The guy booking our excursions for Coming2 was awesome One of our rooms was not ready, mind you half of us came a day late! Our reservation was for 3 adults and 2 children. We were given a Family Master Suite, despite reserving a Junior Suite Superior and Family Junior Suite, which the manager called “The Family Junior Superior”. The Junior Suite Superior 48202, was checked in first and was setup correctly, for 1 adult and 1 child, but we had to call and ask for the concierge to restock the mini bar everyday! Which was beer only, our previous experience it was liquor and beer. Our Family Junior Suite 48203 didn't have the Bahia Scouts bag hat, t-shirt, coupon for the other child, nor did it have any robes or slippers in the closet, and the fridge was unplugged. We had to call to have them restock the beverages for that room as well. Otherwise the room was cleaned to satisfaction and the housekeeper was very nice. Food: Mimosa was Tang, not orange juice, and champagne. We went to the beach and ate at their buffet and we went to Bravo. The food variety was better, and there were more English speaking servers and guests. The next day we tried to go back to Bravo and was tapped on our bracelets told "Turquesa, no, no eat here" the greeter proceed to make circle motion with her hand directing us to get out of line. How embarrassing! All inclusive right our money went to Bahia Principle, why were we discriminated against, because of our hotel choice. They want you to spend money and shop at the other hotels at Bahia Principle, but we can't eat everywhere within that specific hotel?!? We were not informed that we couldn’t eat at certain buffets and then to be treated like this in front of our children and other guests. We also noticed people with wristbands other than Turquesa eating out "our" buffet. I understand if it was a privilege hotel or 21+, it was Bravo which is neither. We made 3 reservations for the specialty restaurants. The man at guest services gave me 2 receipts for the Japanese restaurant, instead of one for each restaurant . I specifically asked for Hibachi. The next day I went back to guest services to have get the correct receipts for each of the restaurants. The woman that took my receipts for the Japanese restaurant changed it to A la Carte. Needless to say this ruined, the experience. We asked to wait for Hibachi and was refused. The sushi we ordered was tuna from the can. We ordered extra fried rice and wasn’t served it. No ginger sauce or shrimp sauce. The rice was hard and cold. We ended up walking out. We still tipped the waiter, because it wasn’t his fault. Santa Fe A+++ the service, food especially the greeter was fantastic. El Pescado, despite the drivers not being notified that they were moved to outside and riding around for 20 minutes, the roof was being worked on. The food and service was A++. As previously stated we have stayed at Bahia Principle in River Maya Mexico, a Spanish speaking country and was treated 10 times better than what we received at Turquesa/Bravo.

    Family Holiday

    What can I say about the Bahia Principe Turquesa. We are enjoying every minute here so much. There is so much to see and do. The animation team are amazing and depending on you depends how much or little you do. They are friendly but not pushy. The animation team at the beach is also fantastic and great with the kids playing different games. The food is brilliant and love we can eat at so many different places and have 3 ala cartes per week. There are loads of pools that can be used around the bahia principe village as there are 7 hotels all together although you can only use 3. The waterpark is amazing and great for our daughters who are 5 and 6. The staff are really friendly behind the bars and around. If you bring your own coffee make sure you bri g coffee mate. We are loving it that much we've booked 3 weeks next year.

    Fantastic Trip

    When I arrived at the resort I was sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. Quick check in process. The rooms are pretty nice for the most part. AC not as cold as you would expect. But over all not disappointing. The staff we AMAZING. From Franchesco in the lobby eager to drive you around on the shuttle carts to him securing our luggage upon arrival because our rooms were not ready yet. He was the BEST! I highly recommend getting a poolside massage by Ruth. Worth every penny or should I say pesos. The food in the specialty restaurants was so good. The buffet on the other hand was hit or miss. I have to say I was very apprehensive about trying this resort after reading others reviews but I am so glad I did. I will definitely be returning!!!

    Excellent family vacation

    We had an excellent family trip. Myself, wife and 2 kids. I would really like to thank a couple of your staff members who made this trip memorable. Caroline from your kid’s club and entertainment team. We have been to a dozen different resorts and she stood out as one of the best employees out of all of them. My kids, especially my daughter loved being with her. She was very good with the kids. Came and got them to give us a break. Caroline is an outstanding employee and should be acknowledged as such. With out her your review would have been much different. Janet a server in Las Dalias did an excellent job. Very nice person, Malley I believe is the name of our cleaner. We were in Room 51303 from apr 12- apr 19. She did an excellent job of cleaning up after us and took care of any issues we had. Maria a server in the lobby bar was always coming with a drink. she did very well. Miguel from your entertainment staff did a great job, always happy and always entertaining. These staff members made made our trip enjoyable. Good Job.
