    Cabana rental for a grownup skip day

    My husband and I planned a mini skip day and our time at the Bahia was perfect. The cabana space was a bit tight but the older gentleman that checked us in was fantastic. He grabbed another lounger for us and was so accommodating to our many requests. The complimentary margarita jug was definitely NOT watered down, it was nice and strong and lasted the entire day. This was great value. The only downside was the pool, which was cloudy, cold and didn’t look clean

    Look fellow travelers, hotels have been through a lot this past year. Many are struggling to keep staffing up. Spring break was here and is tapering off. Anyone who has worked in hospitality knows how challenging busy seasons are. You can see if you focus on it some areas that could use some attention, but to me those were minor. The elevator a little slow. Whatever. Add more time to get where you need to go. The front desk staff was minimal so just be patient. I’ve worked in hotels before. What I saw was staff that was doing the best they could. I was patient and friendly and so the service I got was great. There were women throwing a fit in the lobby at check in and all I could do was roll my eyes. Entitled and loud “But I’m a Diamond member!!” “Karen” types who will likely post badly. Relax people. We are coming out of spring break and a pandemic. There were some dirty spots around the halls, but I also saw immaculately kept grounds. Housekeeping across the globe has been modified and reduced in hotels due to Covid. So take negative reviews with a grain of salt!! The pool area was sooo great. Busy, but so fun. Get a “sea turtle” cocktail. So delicious! The bartenders were so friendly. Our tween and teen boy loved the pool. The walk to the area of beach in front of the hotel is a sky walk! How cool is that?! The view is stunning. The guys giving out towels on the beach were so nice. We LOVE our room. I was upgraded to an ocean view king suite on the 15th floor. Wow. So killer!! I feel like it could use a few dishes and lacked an ice bucket, but I know so many things not being put in the room because of Covid. There again, minor. Thank you Bahia Mar for a special time for us while in Ft Lauderdale. We have felt valued and we have felt safe.

    Disrespectful and not professional

    Was told we were getting a suite during check in and instead were given a room that was not a suite without any communication of the change. When we communicated this with staff we were rudely told “well you’re getting what you pay for so....” Without any sort of an apology.

    Overall a great place for a fun getaway for the family. Our room was freezing and we couldn't change the temp though. Great vibe and energy on Saturday with live DJ and fun selection of music other days. Love the bridge that connects the pool and the beach. And the best employee was definitely Jacksene on the beach who helped with our lounge chairs and umbrella. Friendliest guy for sure!

    Very pleasant staff checked us in and informed us we were not in the main building. But there would be a luggage cart. Just park behind. Missed entrance because a cop was parked in the entrance with a sunscreen covering his window. We figure it out and pull up to the door. There is no ramp in the sidewalk to roll luggage or cart. Door won’t open to our keys. Other guests finally let us in. A housekeeper overheard and said let me try my fob. Door would open for her either. Had to hold the door for each other and make 4 trips to load our room. Ended up only 1 door in the building worked with our keys. Lobby line was so long there was no way we were wasting our one night. One computer in the center was frozen completely - the other has a shift key broken. The room itself was so comfortable, overall esthetic and cleanliness great. Experience was horrible
