Expected more at this all inclusive

My family and I just returned today after a one week stay at this location. On the outside the property is beautiful! Shuttles run constantly to get you as far as the beach. We had a family master suite which that was two joining rooms one king and two queens. The decor could use an update. It looks old. I'm used to staying in more modern hotels or resorts. I was irritated when I looked at two of the beds when we arrived because they had brownish red spots on the covers and pillow cases. As if they were made with the covers from the previous guest. I called and they told me someone would come change them. I wanted the whole bed stripped. After an hour a housekeeper came and looked. I assumed she was coming back to change them after looking. She didn't speak English so she couldn't tell me. We went to dinner and when we came back the covers STILL weren't changed four hours later. I called again upset this time because I'm exhausted after an early flight. Three people come in and they finally get changed. The mini bar didn't get stocked for two days. We didn't request anything extra, but was expecting what we were told was included. Several times I said NO BEER I even wrote the note in Spanish. My kids room still had beer in it daily except the one day that I was in the room and personally asked them to take it in exchange for water. I was so tired of calling the concierge. If we leave our washcloths and towels hung up to reuse they would be put in a pile the we can't tell them apart. If we put them down to be changed we'd get towels and no washcloths. At times I was made to feel like I wasn't just as important because I don't speak fluent Spanish. Also you're only allowed two A La Carte restaurant reservations for a one week stay. So you'll be eating the buffet or snack bar the rest of the trip. We had a great trip outside of our room. We won't visit this particular location again. I like to be comfortable in and out of the room. They have other beautiful properties close to them. I was told to check Luxury Bahia out the next time because it's nice.

not impressed

I will say the grounds are pretty. Food wasn't bad for the buffet, the ala cart restaurants were good. I probably wouldn't go back to this property. I have stayed at other Bahia resorts this one was bad. If you are an American that doesn't speak the language you weren't treated very well. It took us three time to get our safe working, thank god for the woman who had to reprogram our keys. The guy at the front desk was the least helpful person there. Rooms are in need of a major fixing. Housekeeping not good. Not very friendly staff. I think the only people that were the most help was the Apple reps at the resort. I have been to the Dominician Republic before and loved it until this stay. Don't wasted your money at this resort.

Great vacation!

I'm so glad that I did not listen to the bad reviews about this resort! This one is perfect for families, we were traveling with a 18 month old. I emailed the resort a week ahead and asked for a pool view room on the top floor. The room was exactly what i asked for. The room was huge & clean. Plenty of water, soda and beer in mini bar. The buffet was clean and fresh with a huge variety of food. Our waiter maikel, always greeted us with a smile and made us feel special. Pool was great, always enough chairs. Oscar the pool bartender was attentive and prompt.The nightly shows I the lobby were nice. I would definitely return. Yo the people that complained about service, try tipping a few bucks. It goes a long way to an enjoyable vacation!

Nice and relaxing hotel

I just visited this hotel for the first time in May with three of my buddies. We had an amazing time here. The hotel was very clean and maintained well and the atmosphere was relaxing and perfect. The staff was awesome. Very friendly and pleasant and extremely helpful. I want to give a special thanks to bell hop Jose Botello also to a very friendly morning maintenance staff member who I never caught his name but he was always cleaning the front of the hotel grounds. I will definitely visit here again.

we enjoyed our trip

we booked this hotel through apple vacations because of the extras that they advertise, the resort is beautiful, the turquesa is all the way at the front of the resort furthest away from the beach, but it is not a problem because of the shuttles that run constantly, the resort is massive and is divided into different sections and have different pools, buffets and restaurants, by booking with apple we got a different armband and had access to everything on the resort except the adults only side, at the turquesa they had the worst buffet of all of them, we figured it out on day 2 and never went back and used the others, the snack bar by the pool however at the turquesa was the best on the resort.our room was clean and very nice, we had a stocked mini fridge with beer, soda and water daily.the pools are nice but the hot tubs are attached to the hot tub and aren't hot.we had two restaurant reservations ( steakhouse & barbecue ) the bbq was ok but was buffet style like the regular buffets, the steakhouse however was fantastic.there were live shows, shopping and many things going on at all times around the only get wifi in the lobby for 1 hour daily.All of the employees were really nice, (tip them by the way), they work really hard and are there from the morning until the evening, the drinks however dint have much alcohol..if you tip the right people that will change though!it was a nice beautiful resort, if your deciding to come here do it! the other parts of the resort are closer to the beach but none are on the beach so save your money, the shuttle comes around quickly, and i loved riding them!there are armed security that walked the grounds all night long so you dont have to worry, however it was mentioned no to go to the beach at night!watch for the timeshare sales people, they will try to give you a "free gift", they even sent an invitation envelope to our room, i ended up going off one one of them and they did not bother us the rest of our trip!p.s when you arrive to the airport, there are guys who look "official" that will try to grab you bags..DONT LET THEM! its a short walk down a ramp and around the corner to your resort transfer location, they try to trick you to get a tip..I learned this from a fellow trip advisor review that i read and i was ready! i saw them scamming people for tips..
