I purchased all-inclusive (breakfast, lunch, dinner and other meals/perks). When I arrived at the hotel and wanted to place a reservation for a theme restaurant dinner included in all-inclusive, the front desk told me that I needed to reserve at least a week in advance. A week? we were going to be there for 4 days only. So we missed it even though we paid for it.
In addition to that, I was charged 20 Euros for parking outside (10 E fee and 10 E deposit). The deposit was refunded but not the 10 Euros fee even though parking was included in the all-inclusive.
When I told the front desk, they actually denied that I paid for parking and they never returned me the parking fee. Amazing! I felt powerless because the front desk did not even listen to me, he kept cutting me off and saying that the payment was not in his computer system.
In summary, a bad experience my family and I had at this Bahia Principe hotel. I would not recommend this hotel to my worst enemy.
I also put a sad face for cleanliness because of the constant sewer bathroom smell. Totally disgusting. And of course, the front desk would not change our room because it was all full, even though I could find rooms available online.
Where does Bahia Principe find these front desk people to hire? Do they train them to be polite with their customers?
