    This hotel has nothing to do no entertainment. Food is terrible. Al inclusive on selected food. You get same food for lunch and dinner at the buffet. The bar in the pool has no service. If you want a drink you need to go snd get it yourself. Too expensive for what they offer. Met a few people here that were very disappointed . It doesn't .matter whether you are a member or not. They don't honor it Terrible experience. If they had better food and entertainment it will be a great place because staff is really nice especially the guys at the lobby bar.

    I normally don’t like to write poor reviews but I had to for this one. Three of us friends went to this resort because it was slightly cheaper and the reviewed for decent. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY!! The beach was beautiful and the food was great. HOWEVER, we were treated very different and it was very obvious. Most of the staffs took awhile to serve us and when they served us, service was great. For an example, on our first day, we were at the bar; we get it,they’re busy so we waited patiently for our turn. We stood there for almost 10 minutes and the bartender saw us and knew we were there. A Spanish couple literally came to the bar, the bartender looked at the couple, looked at us then went to serve the couple who spoke Spanish. At that time, we got frustrated and just left. A lot of tourists who go to this resort are from Spain or Argentina. Therefore they spoke Spanish. It was obvious that the staffs favoured the Spanish speaking guests and Caucasian guests over us. Another instance, they would only serve us “better” once they see tips lying around the table. Which is unacceptable. Another example, we went on an excursion, the guide spoke Spanish, French and English. Only three of us spoke English. The other tourists spoke Spanish and French. The guide spoke 10% English and majority he spoke French and Spanish for the entire day. For people of colour, I HIGHLY would not recommend this resort. You’re better off going to punta Cana where it’s more for English speaking tourists

    A beautiful tranquil resort

    A very small, peaceful resort with a beautiful beach and pool area, and spacious rooms. AI is buffet 3 meals, plus A La Carte lunch/snack 4-6pm, basic minibar and night room service. Good range of cocktails (all available without alcohol), spirits, hot and cold drinks, etc. There's little to do other than relax, eat, drink, or listen to the band at night, so it could get monotonous after an extended stay. I loved the slow-paced atmosphere, and luxury feeling of the whole adults-only resort. A good mix of ages as well as solo travellers, couples, friend groups, and families. "Superior" room was huge, more of a suite. Everything was spotless. Housekeeping hadn't noticed some toiletries were empty, this was promptly rectified. Early check-in permitted for free, late checkout at 5pm was $35. I was able to use all AI bars and restaurants from my morning arrival to my evening departure with no hassle. Buffet was a little limited, and annoyingly straws are unavailable at any bars which makes frozen drinks hard to drink. Also, menu indicates bottled water at bars is included in AI but staff will only give you filtered water by the glass.

    Not a luxury experience

    A great small hotel in a quiet beautiful setting. The staff went above and beyond however a few things left me wondering. The pillows were very small, lumpy and damp smelling and the shower was tepid. The bar stock was mediocre and there was an upcharge for premium rums, gins and scotches. When questioned the staff said that was the way it was. But this is a luxury Bahia? Some of the bar items included were not even available which was confusing. The entertainment left a lot to be desired and was more like karaoke.
