Very good food, great service and friendly staff. Room very big and comfortable with great views. Clientele older so entertainment was focused on the older generation but still pleasant. Entertainment staff very friendly and really gave us great attention. Hotel location is fantastic, close to everything you could need.

All the staff were brilliant. Nice to see so many smiling faces. They all worked extremely hard to make our stay special. The spa is wonderful and should be compulsory on the first day as it prepares you for a relaxing holiday. I can't praise the team highly enough. Thank you so much.

The staff are very friendly and helpful, there was some building work going on at the hotel, and it we could hear drilling in the morning. There was also building work in the neighbourhood. Great location, the hotel is on the seafront and you only need to cross the road to get to the beach. It is at the end of the promenade and easy to get into town. The only other draw back was the air conditioning which was not having much effect, so we had to sleep on top of the bed as we were too warm.

1. At the time of the hotel reservation, free parking was guaranteed, in practice 10 Euro per parking day. 2. We ordered half board, actually at dinner demanded payment on all types of drinking including water. These two issues spoiled our stay at the hotel.

No lifeguard on duty - dangerous!
I was watching my 2 kids in the pool since the lifeguard was not there when another kid running next to the pool slipped over the wet floor. His mom came to the rescue, but nobody else from the hotel came. When I went to look for the lifeguard, she was at the towel booth giving out pool towels to hotel guests. I asked her in Spanish what she was doing there since she had the lifeguard t-shirt on, and she said the front desk manager told her to be at the towel booth and watching the pool at the same time. 2 jobs at the same time?. She was annoyed that she was told to be at the booth when children were at the pool. She also told me she was the youngest employee in the hotel. She was sorry for not being at the pool when the child fell. Amazing that they have someone that young doing 2 jobs: lifeguard and serving pool towels. I wonder if that falls within the safety pool regulations in Bahia Principe hotel.
