    We stayed here Thursday and Friday night. Just before we got there I received a email for a upgrade to a room with a balcony for $15.00 per night I didn't take it (maybe I should have) The room was clean with 2 small beds maybe full size was told they were queen but I have a queen bed and they were not ,the bathrin 0oom sink had no water coming out of it We told the ladies that were cleaning the rooms and we were took they would get maintenance to fix it . It was a great location across from the beach . Lots of restaurants to walk to to . The pool was nice very crowded. 2 chairs with towels and umbrellas at the beach 1 free hour bike ride , 2 free drinks at the pool bar .

    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!
