    Julian was accommodating and helpful in making our reservations at The Bahia Resort Hotel. We have a son with disabilities and Julian helped us arrange an excellent room for the family. We are looking forward to a great vacation. Thanks Julian!

    Mostly bad some good

    Our family and I saved up for a yearly family vacation. We always like to pick a very nice resort where we feel pampered. The employees and staff were excellent especially AAron the manager. Unfortunately during our six nights day we had to change rooms three times. There was something wrong in every single room. Let’s list all the things that were wrong in all of the rooms. Nonworking air conditioning, coffee pot not working, sliding glass door not locking, showers backing up, safes not working, closet doors not on tracks, the smell of marijuana throughout the hallways and pool area where horrendous, sofa beds are not sleep worthy at all springs popping out very very thin mattress, parking is a hot mess literally cars are on top of you everywhere, outdated and extremely overpriced for what they say they offered. We did get money back on our stay and we were moved to one of the nicest rooms but when we opened the doors the air conditioners were not working and both needed to be replaced. The staff was exceptional but I definitely would never stay here again. The manager AAron was very helpful, but I feel like he hast to do this all the time. When I spend that kind of money on a family vacation I expect the best if I wanted to stay in a three star motel I would’ve expected to get what I got. And they also need to tackle the marijuana issue in that hotel. It’s not something you want your children smelling all day every day.

    A great place to unwind!

    I had a wonderful staycation with a friend. We enjoyed hanging out in a bungalow and watching the sunset. Had a fun time taking pics in the lush tropical garden. There are sandy beaches to walk around and a private beach with chairs and umbrellas. The restaurant was perfect! The staff was so friendly, especially Rachel who planned my next trip to her homeland in Ireland! The food was excellent. The pool and jacuzzi were very clean and well maintained. This would also be the perfect place for a family vacation.

    Excellent Service!

    Renee from reservations was so helpful! She helped us upgrade our bedroom to a suite from a studio bedroom (for minimal cost) and told us about all the fun activities at the hotel and surrounding area. She made me 100000% more excited about our stay and went above and beyond to provide the absolute best service. Thank you for all your help, Renee!

    Family Trip

    I was calling around, looking for somewhere nice to take the family, and brainstorming about what to do. I called Bahia Resort in San Diego and spoke with Renee. She gave me a great deal and also gave me great ideas about what to do in the area. Speaking with Renee solved all my problems in one phone call. Awesome service!
