    Book Direct with Hotel: Larese in Reservations

    Larese in Reservations helped me with my booking. I was booking 5 rooms for various family members so it was pretty complicated and had to make sure all families got the rooms they wanted. Larese was excellent and helped get my reservations all taken care of VERY quickly and there were no mistakes!! That's rare in my book! Very thankful!

    Staff at the Bahia resort

    The hotel staff Tristan and Ben were fantastic. We wanted to move rooms around so that my daughter could be closer to her Sailing friends. They made it happen without a problem. My daughter needed safety pins. They made it happen in minutes. The hotels were clean and quiet. Parking was simple and abundant.

    Great Stay. Recommended!!

    The service was great. I would recommend it. Everyone is very nice and accommodating. We got a complementary upgrade which was icing on the cake. The restaurant on the property is pricey but delicious. The food is good, fresh and the customer service is also great. I want to come back.

    Karina is awesome!!!

    Karina was terrific! We had to relocate from an awful location and she made it effortless. She is an excellent representative. We ended up staying an extra night because she made us feel so welcome. We will be back!!!
