The hotel is good and I recommend it but you should be aware of the following issues I have experienced in Oct 2011: 1. The next big malls and restaurants can be reached by car in about 10 min. You are limited to the resort itself for night life activities and dining or you have to drive a lot. If you really want to go out and experience different local bars and night life I suggest you look for a hotel in the San Juan area. 2. Be aware that during off-season the hotels (in general) try to make money with events to compensate for the lack of guests (and money). We had a Dream Beach techno festival on Saturday from 11am to 10pm with very loud music (even with closed windows). 3. Service staff sometimes does not get it right - give wrong answers, do not find you on guest lists, do not perform the restaurant reservations they promised to do for you, let you wait a long time for their shuttle service. 4. In general, parking fees and food offered by the onsite restaurants are rather pricey.

This resort exceeded expectations. This is probably the nicest place I have stayed and I have stayed in some pretty nice places (4-5 star in Paris, Hawaii, Chicago). The grounds are gorgeous. The staff is the friendliest I have seen. Always wanting to help. Angel at the tour desk made our reservations for activites and clearly explained any details we needed to know. It is easy to go get a bike for biking or playing a round of golf. The room was probably the most basic that was available and was still over the top. It had an incredible bathroom and shower, very large room overall, cd player, porch with furniture, mini fridge that you could actually use (not just minibar fridge, but items were available for purchase if you like). The location was good for us right near the rainforest, but about 30 minutes from San Juan. Definitely rent a car but it is an easy drive. Of course this kind of service and presentation doesn't come cheap, but at least you get what you pay for. We visited another 4 star property in San Juan for gambling, and while it was nice, it wasn't over the top like the Bahia. So, despite the cost, there is a level of value here. No way I would return to Puerto Rico and stay anywhere else.
