This resort has it all. Huge pools, great beach with tons of activities. Gorgeous marble lobby. Tons of great food. The drinks are wonderful. This resort is enormous with something for everyone. The entertainment is exceptional compared to some other tropical resorts. Huge swim-up bar. Many bars. Many options. Quiet areas as well as hopping.

This resort is fairly small compared to other Bahia Resorts I've stayed at. We have privilege club benefits and the room was nice although not luxurious. The food was good for me, but not too many options (since I'm vegan). My parents stayed for two weeks but got quite sick on the second week (maybe from the water or food).... More
