We had a great vacation. The rooms are clean and well kept. Although it rained very heavy, the staff worked very hard to keep things going smoothly. It was not easy. The food was great and we always ate too much. The entertainment team was fabulous especially Elizabeth, Sorianna, Daniel and all of them. We will return

There were 3 of us who stayed at this resort for the week of April 3rd to the 10th, 2017. Our overall experience which was equally shared by the three of us was excellent. The strong points were the outstanding staff who was willing to help in any way they could. Although they could not speak English well, they made...

We enjoyed the resort. The food, entertainment, and the drinks were tremendous. The beach was not overly enjoyable. The pools were fantastic. The New Years Celebration was phenomenal. The seafood was terrific. Sun and fun.

We have been to many Bahia resorts and this one is not up to the standards as the ones you will find in Mexico but neither is the price. For the price we paid it was perfect. This is the only resort in San Juan and is one and a half hours from the Samona airport. But the ride was...

We had a fabulous time with family and friends. Everything was perfect for my dreams to come true. The wedding planner was excellant nothing too much trouble. The waiter Edwardo in the main restaurant made meals more enjoyable. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the gardens perfect. The bar staff were always happy to ensure you had what you wanted....

Alright... so as Bahia Privilege Club people go, this is the worst Bahia I think you will find. We love the Bahia resorts they are always clean and the food is awesome. This was the 'free' vacation they offered us as part of joining the club. There's a reason for that... We would never have joined if this was the...

We were in C block, very clean and comfortable. They are renovating, I noticed a lot of the rooms have new heat pumps/air conditioners. Shower wasn't always overly warm, but who wants a hot shower when you have sunburn? The maids did an excellent job. We loved the food, did a couple a la cartes, which were great.The beach was...

We stayed at the GBP San Juan April 13th to 20th. What we got was a budget friendly vacation that we thoroughly enjoyed. Like many reviewers we were were somewhat skeptical on what we were in for when we booked this vacation. Many of the observations listed by reviewers have validity. Yes, the drive from the airport to the resort...
