Grand Bahía Ocean View Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel was fine but a bit out of the way. No local places outside the hotel to get a bite to eat or a drink. Did not like the fact that the hotel ask you to turn off the lights and the AC in your room when you are not in it! I thought I was paying for AC and electricity! There is also a very strong bad smell in that area. I would not visit this hotel again and do not recommend it to anyone I know.

Nice hotel but in public areas all the hand rails or every rails are in bad condition and the furniture of the pool they are all broken ,the pools water dirty the beach is a mangrove but the staff are very nice

The facilities are good. Five minutes in car to Playuela Beach. We went to the restaurant, but the service was very slow, so we prefer to eat out for our dinners. Quiet and a little bit boring during the days of a week. Maybe in weekends could be more alive.

We arrived at Bahia Salinas with high expectations—our two days here were to be the luxury part of our vacation. Sadly, right from the get-go we were disappointed. Our room seemed to be what may have been a converted supply space. All of the walls were made of wood paneling, and aside from one small window in the front, the unit was dark. The second bedroom was stacked behind the first, with only a tiny window that had its shutters tightly closed and hidden behind a heavy shade. When we looked closer, we saw it overlooked a supply hallway. The bathroom in our unit had tan ceramics that looked to be borrowed from the 1970s, with plumbing fixtures to match. And worse, the front room had a stench of cat urine. When I requested a room change from the woman at the desk, she was aloof and unhelpful. We were there on New Year's eve and New Year's eve day, so the spa area was closed. No apology was made for this. The resort restaurant hosted a huge party for locals that evening on the resort grounds, playing loud music clear into the night. No apologies or notices were made to guests to let us know about the party and others using the accommodations. The beach looks lovely in the pictures, but in reality, the ground is mud, not sand. A few steps into the ocean, I realized I was sinking up to my knees in the muck. Another guest had watched me and later admitted he'd waited for me to figure out the area was unswimmable. Despite warnings from other guests about the slow service, we went to the restaurant for dinner our second night. With only 4 tables filled with guests, our dinner took fully two hours to be served once we ordered. Again, no apologies or amenities were provided for the wait or poor service. Positives: the resort is in a lovely location for bird-watching, and there's a great beach for swimming just down the road at the lighthouse. The breakfast is buffet-style (not included) and quite good. And the dinner, once you finally get served, is very tasty. My husband, son and I were relieved when this part of our trip was concluded. We truly felt we endured, rather than enjoyed, our stay at Bahia Salinas.

We really enjoyed the solitude that Bahia Salinas provides. The infinity pool is beautiful and definately the highlight of the grounds. The staff was very polite and professional. We realized early on that out room didn't have hot water. After the staff confirmed they upgraded us to a nicer room at no charge without hesitation. The restaurant served very good food and the staff there was also very nice. My only disappointment was that Christmas decorations were only slightly present and the restaurant didn't have anything special for the holiday. The resort seemed to have a very small number of guest this day though, so it may not have been worth it on their part.

Every time I make a reservation thru orbits or other discount co. I always get surprises at the end of my vacation, such as extra charges for meals, parking, drinks, etc...

Amazing tranquility! Don't attempt to apply the term "resort" in the sense of Disney or Hilton. You won't find a sprawling property with water slides for the kids and staff zipping around on golf cart here - thank God! Bahia Salinas is about eighty feet beyond the terminus of Carraterra 301. The gravel road continues for another mile and a half ending inside the Cabo Rojo preserve where you will find the most amazing beach and Puerto Rico's best lighthouse. We stayed for two nights arriving after 8:00P after a long drive from Dorado to the Aricibo Observatory then overland through the mountains to Rincon (via Moca) then on to Bahia Salinas. The manager Vanessa was very helpful with directions and suggested that we dine before our arrival because their restaurant was closing at 8:00P. The pool was available for guests to use until 10:00P. I was awakened at about 5:20A by the most incredible sounds of birds of all sorts. Thousands of birds were zipping back and fourth having their morning meal. This went on for about eighty minutes before the flocks moved on leaving just a few cranes feeding in the shallow water. I went for a thirty minute walk (each way) into the Cabo Rojo preserve. WOW! Incredible. Just me walking down a narrow gravel road that is riddled with small potholes and flanked with shrubs, barbwire fences and twisted telephone poles. It was so peaceful. I walked up to the bluffs where the lighthouse is and then returned to the hotel for breakfast. Nice buffet on on outdoor veranda with a million dollar view. Terrific fruit salad and coffee, but so so eggs. After breakfast we left for the lighthouse via car. We had finished out tour of the light house and were headed north explore the cost before 10:45A. Lunched in Joyuda (Tony's) and returned to spend the late afternoon and sunset in Combate and ate dinner in a swell little spot next to the marina that was packed with locals. Awesome meal - CHEAP! This is the Puerto Rico that Puerto Ricans escape to! Don't be a snob and miss it. What a gem of on area. We cannot wait to return. We will stay at Bahia Salinas again "FOR SURE!"

This location is a beautiful, out of the way, relaxing place for couples to enjoy time together. A getaway to just enjoy yourselves.

A great place for a romantic get away.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone who desires a nice and quiet place near great beaches in the Cabo Rojo area. The room was clean with a great view of the pool and ocean. However, because it's a resort, I will have to say that the service in the restaurant was bad, not enough waiting staff to attend customer needs. But it is also fair to point out that the food was excellent and very reasonably priced. Overall, I would go back to this resort and recommend it to my friends and family.

We enjoyed our stay at this quiet secluded resort. We arrived in PR a few days before the Novemeber Elections which are crazy unlike any election you will see in the states. We were glad to be staying away from all the political caravans and noise. The Scenery and Pool are beautiful. Waking up and walking out the front door and seeing the ocean and pool right in front of you, worth every dime! The only negatives we had about this property are they need some better management running the resort and then it would be a world class resort. The service in the resturant very slow. Our friends wanted to get a massage and asked when the spa open, they were told 12 noon which is kinda late for something to be opening. Well we tried all day to go to the spa and book appts but everytime we went it was closed, don't think they ever opened that day. We wanted to rent a kayak, but were told they would could not that it was a seperate run operation and not open during this time of the year. Our room was nice, very large and old world feel. The only comment about the room is that it would be nice if they provided hand towels. We defintely would reccomend this place and would return.

The Bahia Salinas Beach Resort & Spa was very comfortable. The room is larger, and the bathroom is clean. In the morning the water dont have enough pressure. The resort is very quiet. The location is very good to went to Playa sucia or Combate beach. There are no closer restaurants, but the hotel have a good one.

Wonderful place to stay and relax. But nothing within an hours drive to do. Great views, great food and wonderful staff. If you want to relax and just chill, this is the place to go. Also no hot water for the shower!
