Bahia Luxery - Wedding Anniversary Trip

My wife and I went for our 2 year wedding anniversary. The resort is really nice and the staff is very helpful. The resort is kept very neat and all the gardening looks great. The staff is very nice as well. Every time you pass by them, they always make a point to say hi. Room Service - the menu is very limited, but they get the food to you within 30 minutes of calling them. We requested someone at the lobby to have the butler get us a cake for our anniversary day and they said they would take care of the whole thing, but unfortunately they didn't do anything. I'm not sure what happened. Food - they have several restaurants to eat from, but you need to make sure you book them in advance. It's best to do it the day you land at the resort. The food wasn't that good to begin with. All the buffet food didn't taste that good. I guess you can't expect much when they cook the food in big batches. Timeshare/Privilege Club - This is not the same as a timeshare but expect to see people at the resort give you a sales pitch. It's not the same as timeshare but it's all kind of the same. If you don't want to waste 1.5 hours of your vacation, just tell them you're not interested. They were very nice about the whole experience. I wanted to purchase it, but I'm not the type to make a decision which involves several thousand dollars after hearing someone speak for 1.5 hours. They give you a small gift for hearing them out.

Wonderful

Service and cleanliness were exceptional. Some dining options/dishes were a bit hit or miss, but overall fantastic and plenty of variety. Free palapas on the beach, in room jacuzzis, and 24 hour butler service are a plus and can be rare at other all-Inclusives. Room decor is a bit dated, but clean. Fridge didn't get very cold. Be careful ordering top shelf specialty drinks, like cognac. They're not included and they tack on tax and tip and charge them to your room, even if you give a cash tip upon ordering them.

Great in so many ways but

Service was good, beach well maintained and clean,pool was great,and room was fine. Now to my only complaint. Buffet was fine lots of selection for breakfast and lunch. The ala Carter dinner locations is a joke. All of the restaurants by reservations where a glorified buffet. You get up and serve yourself up to the point they bring a entree. I was not impressed with any of the ala carte experiences.

Awesome place

I can't say anything bad about this place it was really nice, clean and friendly staff!!! I would definitely stay here again if I go back to Punta Cana or stay at one at other destinations. The only thing I wish would of happend is if the Butler would of introduced themselves to us. It sounds lijlike the other guests we met theirs did and they did special things for them. Yes we did tip in the room every day ranging from $4.00 - $8.00.

What's to Love

It's an all-inclusive & all-Dominican dreamy.

The butler service and pillow menu (upon request) & hydro massage shower in the rooms.

Feeling all royal under the massage gazebos & in the VIP cabin with private Jacuzzi.

The delicious Ayurveda treatments at the spa. Swoon-worthy.

 

What We'd Change

The language barrier can be tough and while the staff is very helpful, you may need a small dictionary to help you communicate.

 

Why You Should Go

It's 30 minutes from the Punta Cana airport - a short, sweet ride to paradise.

The PADI dive center is located on the beach.

On May 1, 2017, the hotel will become a hotel for families.

Trolleys take you to your room, if you don't want to walk.
