    Karina at check in was the best check in experience I had checking into a hotel. She was informative, conversational, and got us exactly what we needed. The room was available at 10:30AM which was amazing.

    Highly recommended hotel

    Very friendly and accomodating staff. Room was clean. All of our requests were granted such as extra pillows, a chair and a thick blanket without any additional charge. Aircon is cold, perfect for the hot weather. Slept comfortably eventhough you could still hear music from their restaurant but the sound is very faint. Bathroom was good. There is a bidet. (This is always I look for in a bathroom hotel) Hot and cold shower is perfect. We enjoyed listening to their band and food is good. I will definitely recommend and stay in this hotel again.

    Helpful staff/Amazing views

    Our room was wonderful. It was right on the bay-beautiful views. It’s such an easy walk to Mission Beach. We actually forgot some needed paperwork and Ryan was amazing to help us. He guided us on what we needed to do and was very patient with us, as well. We appreciate him and loved our stay!

    Great service at reception!

    Tristan at reception was stellar! Professional and efficient, he helped keep things moving along with our large family group and made sure we had the best rooms! Def a 5-star employee! The Bahia has been very accommodating to our young grandchildren.

    Our family had fun!

    Check in was quick and easy. Tristan was very friendly and went over all the amenities of the hotel. We traveled as a family; 2 year old, 4 year old, and 2 adults, we had a great time. Kitchenette was very useful with the kiddos. Trash changed and new towels each day, which was nice as we were on the beach every day, all day. Cable tv was nice. We didn’t get a chance to check out the private beach or pool as we were so close to mission beach and food was walking distance. But we will definitely be back to check those out next summer.
