Great time
catlovel

We visited the grand bahia in October. We had a wonderful time. Sure it's a little dated but very clean.

Food
Buffett was pretty good. Always something good to eat. Steakhouse was good but not fantastic
We went to the Don Pablo twice loved it. The steak was delicious and tender. Our server Damien was very good. Knew his job and did it well. Always a smile .

Bars.
If you are looking for pleasant service this is not where you will find it
With a few exceptions we found the bar servers very unfriendly, lobby and pool.

Front desk

Always friendly and helpful
Kimmikong (spelling ) executive manager was the kindest and sweetest person we ever met while travelling, we travel 3 times a year. Husband has walking issues so she made sure we were in a room close to most things on the resort. Thank you Kimmi.

Golden club

Don't waste your money. When arriving there is suppose to be robes slippers beach towels and rum in your room
We had none of this. Brought this to the attention of ladies at the golden club and still did not receive anything. We arrived on Saturday and finally got robes on Monday after going to front desk to complain. Had to go to the air transat rep to get the rum which we received on Wednesday. We have always taken golden club at other Bahias we have gone to but this one didn't live up to expectations.

We will consider returning but will be sure to bring a wheelchair for husbands motility issues. Resort is big

We stayed here Oct 26-Nov 02, 2019.
Large group attended for wedding. Everyone seemed to enjoy the vacation.
Rooms were nice. AC worked and was wonderful after a long day out in the heat.
The wedding was beautiful! Wedding dinner/party afterwards perfect!

Don't let a rude bartender/missing facecloths ruin your vacation. You are on vacation time just go with the flow :)

HUGE hotel

THE GOOD:
Pool games are fun. Lots of food choices. Comfy beds. Having fun!!! group trip and hotel did accommodate us to be on the same floor/wing. the beaches are nice, make sure to bring water shoes as many spots are very shelly. The dive team were great. We had a good time and would visit this hotel again

THE NOT SO GREAT: pool & spa close too early, unable to enjoy each restaurant as the hotel limits you to how many you can choose during your stay and reservations fill up too quickly, evening entertainment was rather boring and unoriginal compared to other resorts throughout the caribbean that we have visited, the young bar tenders were friendly, the not young bartenders were rather matter of fact.
