    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    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.

    • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    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.

    All-inclusive rip-off and irresponsible front desk

    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?
