Oversized

This property I huge. It takes about 2 hours to make dinner reservations outside the buffet. We were Not successful they were booked every night we were there. Tuesday was Lobster Night It was a disaster. you waited in line people were butting in front of others . We waited 30 mins inside the buffet in line and they ran out. Poor Planning & Management. The guest I guess need to be served this. There is no order in this buffet. There needs to be a direction cow line because for grown adults acting like food was going to be extinct the next day. The dining help would guide you to your seat and people would complain & move. Adults was letting their children play with the condiments hands all over salt & pepper shaker. I had a man climb over a rail and pass his little ones over & wife climbed over rail to kicking me in my head. They ran out of spaghetti on Wednesday. Wash cloths were Never Left so we called everyday for that. Children that were tired, hungry or wet adults were disregarding them to appease themselves. Then leave the children home. The example that these adults set from 2/26/2017 to 3/2/2017 was disgraceful. The entertainment, drinks and property was nice. Beach was so crowded that you may not find a place to set in the sand. The million lounge chairs were always filled because you have 5 resorts on 1 sharing 1 beach. I had friends who went to the Jamaica property 2nd week of December 2016 and they ran out of hot water for the entire 6 days and their power went out 2 days. The resort provided hand sanitizer when entering the buffet, people walked right passed them. Thongs are all around the food station for a reason, many people didn't use them. Needles to say what a dirty, uncouth bunch of grown people were talking hundreds of people. if you decide to go although the buffet hours say 1 thing they do run out of many things so you may want to go early. Excellence,Secrets , Sandals are far better & smaller properties. the people who reserve these properties are more civilized also

Nothing Special

We did not know that the beach was a mile away, and you needed to take a shuttle to get there. We did not know before we went that it was a complex of four Bahia resorts (Too Many People). You were unable to use the buffet at any of the other resorts for dinner. You were only allowed to reserve three ala carte restaurants, therefore not enough of variety of foods. The Japanese restaurant, was so disorganized, even though we had reservations, we had to wait over an hour plus for our table that, we gave up and left. The first room was dirty and mattress needed to be replaced (sunk in the middle). We complained and the resort did move us to another room, which was better, but still not that clean. There were three of us, but we only got two towels. Online, it stated robes and slippers would be provided and we had none. We requested robes and slippers and waited two days to get two robes and two slippers. We waited another day for the other robe and slippers, but none of the robes had belts and that was another two days before we got belts. There was no alcohol in the mini bar- wait what? If you wanted to use the safe for your valuables, that was an additional four dollars a day. Which was not stated on line. No WiFi was available- are you serious right now?. The front desk process was always crowded, understaffed and took too long. Check in took over an hour and there were only three of us. At other resorts, we received a welcome greeting and drink. Not here. After check in we waited another half hour waiting for a bell hop to take us to our room. I had to carry my own bag up the three flights of stairs. No extra electrical plugs for people with sleep apnea or to recharge your personal devices. The TV reception was Horrible! You could barely see the picture because of the "Snow". We called and it took two days to fix. Only to last for two days. At the buffets, the tables were always dirty and had to be cleaned. We understand that from time to time they can't get that done, but they should really do that before they seat you at a dirty table. On numerous occasions (at Least 6), we had to get our own place settings because no one ever returned to do so, not to mention to get a drink of water. The Italian Themed night at the buffet, did not have much Italian food and no parmesan cheese. Seriously! The pools all closed at six p.m. I am on vacation, I need them opened longer. Getting a chair whether by the pool or the beach, was next to impossible, even at 0730 in the morning. The resort allowed people to leave towels on the chairs and never return or at least four to five hours. One morning we witness a major argument over who left there towel on the chair before breakfast first, that almost came to blows. Don't waste your money on swimming with the dolphins, what a major rip off. On a good note the Amstar Transfer Process (to and from airport) was excellent. Ellina was very friendly and helpful. Over all the resort was OK, but not worth the hassle for the cost incurred. The beach was excellent, except for finding a seat and the distance to get there.

Overall a great trip!

Overall a really nice resort for the money. Rooms were clean just not overly comfortable (but who spends time in their room anyhow) Beach was crowded due to such a large resort and pretty far from our room. Food was ok in the buffets but much better in the restaurants. Only major complaint was that we bought a excursion from the resort (not cheap) and the guy who sold it to us lied about what we got to do and how long the drive was. It was supposed to be whale watching along with a waterfall tour with horseback riding and all we got was the whale watching portion. And what was only supposed to be a 45 minute one way, was actually 2 1/12 hours:( So buyer beware when purchasing a excursion from Bahia Principe.

This was one of the best vacations that I ever took! I wanted to take my mother somewhere for her birthday and it was the best place for our vacation. The service was great & the good was amazing! Even the excursions were great and well organized.

What's to Love

It's all-inclusive, family-friendly beach blast. No unhappy beachers here.

Dropping the youngsters at the kids' spa while you indulge in a much-needed hot stone massage.

Being handed a welcome cocktail when you arrive - throw it back and have another.

Hittin' the waves via kayak, catamaran or paddle surfing. Beach time is the best time.

 

What We'd Change

The grounds hosting the multiple Grand Bahia resorts can be noisy, but Turquesa is the smallest of them and offers some relative quiet.

 

Why You Should Go

It's 25 minutes from the airport - a brisk trip to your tropical nirvana.

In the Bahia complex (which you have access to), Turquesa is the calmest during the day.

There's an ahh-some children's water park. Your squirts will be tickled pink.

The Family Master Suite has two interconnected rooms. Relax, you can trust the kiddos.
