Only a short family stay, but made to feel very welcome! Thank you for our lovely bubbles and chocolate covered fruit. The kids enjoyed the mini smarties and their ducks too. Shame we couldn't stay longer, would have loved to. Only hiccup was there were no bottle openers!

We booked through Amex Platinum and were upgraded to a full suite - great when traveling with our college-aged son. Staff was very accommodating and pleasant, the setting is beautiful and we could not have asked for better weather. Breakfast buffet included a wide range of very good choices, and the full service options for lunch and dinner were very...

Sea Views often obscured by palm trees. Restaurants are very over- priced and often empty in the evenings. Service poor in the outside Cabana which is...

We came for Easter Holiday to play golf and enjoy the climate. Location is great (although you need a rental car to get to places), staff is super-friendly and helpful, rooms were clean and comfortable. But when you claim to be a 5-star, one should expect things like a decent and clean wellness, a nice bar in the evenings, and...

The Kempinski Hotel Bahia is a great hotel, when drawing a comparison to the general 5 star hospitality industry. However, when comparing it to other Kempinski hotels in Europe, it falls behind, hence the 'Very Good' and not the 'Excellent' rating on this site. If you are visiting this hotel during it off season period you should know that it...
