Think twice!

If your looking for the Walmart of “all inclusives” this is your spot. Notice I’ve put all inclusives in quotes. This place has perfected the bait and switch. If you need anything you have to ask, ask again, and let them know you’ve asked multiple times before anyone helps you. Everyone that works here acts like the scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz. Everything is somewhere else or someone else’s responsibility to address. Walking through the lobby you will quickly see that many people are flailing their arms and speaking loudly to the staff. This is universal sign language for “I’m not happy!” The place has a lot of negative energy. Staff is cold and typically not in a position to offer much help. When you request a manager, the closest employee puffs out their chest, acts important, and eventually lets you know that there are not in a position to help. This is the largest resort on the island of Jamaica and they treat you like cattle. We were promised a la carte dinner reservations as part of our package. The catch is that since I had access to the resort app (5 days before arriving) all reservations are full. It could be because they only open on a la carte restaurant a night. The capacity of the restaurant is less than 100 and there are 100’s of people here. The cleanliness of this resort is extremely poor. In fact, I would suggest playing a drinking game where you take a shot every time you see a hair extension in the pool or laying on the ground. You will be intoxicated before the breakfast buffet runs out of half cooked doughy pancakes. My wife and I were asked to leave the gym because the gym manager booked our gym time slot for 7AM and never told the gym staff. The gym has a capacity of 6. On a brighter note, I climbed 75 flights of stairs in one day according to my watch. The hotel elevators are very small (2 people allowed in each) and there are very few elevators, three to be exact. I could go on, but reliving this experience is depressing and I hope you get the point before they take your deposit.

I just came back from a three week stay off and on at the Bahia. I stayed in three different areas of the resort. All had exceptional views, extremely clean rooms, and comfortable. There are far too many staff members to remember their names. Some stood out and made my stay extremely special. The pool side bar closest to the towel hut has some of the friendliest bartenders that bust their tails to make sure everyone is served in a timely manner. They are professional at all times working tirelessly for a crowd that can be hard to please! Rauel, Michael, Antonio, Kertis, and Damian made to order anything to please the guests. (there are more bartenders who are also exceptional but i forgot their names). You can also order a fresh coconut water and have it served to you. I recommend camping by poolside or beach side and "hire" one of them to bring your drinks when requested. OF COURSE greater service if you bring cash tips. I would bring between 20 and 30 bucks daily and I never had to wait in any lines. Remembering that most guests overlook the tipping process is the reason i mention this. The staff in the dining areas, bars, bell men and Kandy, and housekeepers rely on tips as their primary income. My favorite dining room server is Keyno. He was always positive vibes, professional, efficient, and kind. He worked hard to please the guests. Keyno was always smiling and i requested to always be seated in his section, At the buffet you can make to order delicious omelettes and some of the best fresh pasta I have had! Please do not forget to tip these guys as well! They all deserve it and work 6 days a week to enhance our experiences with consistency and professionalism. I always had the same breakfast every morning and it did not take them long to figure out my order. Considering there are hundreds of guests daily, i was very impressed. Back to the bar.... Rauel and Kertis stand out here. Rauel is one of the sweetest bartenders and makes great "specials" He makes people smile and wants you to have a great experience. I cannot say enough great things about Kertis. He is the hardest working guy constantly moving around cleaning, serving, checking on guests, and so forth. He is an extraordinary bartender and deserves recognition. If there is a way to please a guest Kertis will find it!!!!! I hope the management knows what a great crew they have! I honestly come back because of the familiar faces and the great service experience. The staff are definitely team players. Kemani and the entertainment crew also deserve a big shout out. There was never a shortage of entertainment throughout the day and evening. Some truly talented and professional employees that do their best to include you and make your vacation extra special. The grounds are kept beautifully! So many people work together to beautify the property. Make sure you have a luggage lock. I had a pair of shoes, one shoe, and a robe taken from my room. Security did not take me seriously enough which was discouraging. Also, do look at the maps that are given when you check in. The property is huge and you don't want to miss the water park and the extra beaches! Allow yourself plenty of time to deal with the Covid test. You may not receive an email with a scheduled appointment so follow up yourself. Also, allow yourself an hour for checking out. Things are really busy during those times! Lastly, enjoy yourself. If there is anything you need please do not hesitate to ask someone!. The staff want you to have a wonderful time!
