    Booking with Victoria was a delight for a special needs family!

    As a special needs mom, I always have so many requests to accommodate my son. Victoria in reservations was a breath of fresh air. She listened and accommodated us to ensure his safety and a positive experience. Victoria you were a sweetheart and completely reservation with professionalism and compassion. Impressed by the hospitality! I can't wait to visit next week.

    Easter Lunch

    I celebrated Easter with some friends at Cafe Bahia. The brunch/lunch was amazing along with the service! We had Kona as our service and she was on it! I definitely recommend coming here and having a great experience!

    Can't wait for our trip

    I've stayed at the Bahia before, and coincidentally enough - my high school prom was at the Bahia, so I have fond memories of the place. One thing, however - is that the website is not very user friendly and not very descriptive regarding the room locations. I was adamant in getting access to the beach/bay but really needed to stay within budget. I ended up on the phone with Victoria and she spent time explaining the differences in the west versus east sides of the property, private beach side advantages, space / square footage considerations and everything in between. Again, the website is not the best marketing tool for the Bahia so very grateful that someone walked me through it all.

    Booking this Hotel was a breeze

    I called the hotel and wanted information to book a room, and had the pleasure of speaking with Renee. She was fantastic. Professional and friendly and helped me decide on what room to reserve based on my needs and gave me so many options. Thank you so much Renee for being so helpful on my first call to the hotel and making me feel excited about our upcoming stay!!
