Spectacular property
Had a fantastic 4 nights here. Everything first class , service impeccable and so friendly but this is Bahia is the norm. Got and early 10 am checkin and upgrade room w/ double balcony very nice thanks hotels.com. BUT they did not inform us that there is a loud music & voice side and a quiet side. We got the party side and as we’re in our 70’s you’d think it would have been important to mention. Was loud from 9:30 am to 6:30 pm so an afternoon nap was impossible. Buffet choices in English would be nice as Grand Palladium did. So if get room you like this is a superior resort. Food at Bahia & Gormet restaurants truly excellent. Just wish we could’ve seen the smiling faces of staff but masks won’t be forever. Bravo to the people of Brasil as mask up was universal and taken seriously unlike the nonsense here in the USA. And no tipping adds to value unlike what we saw in Mexico. Just hope staff is given a living wage.

Iberostar sempre uma boa escolha
Um resort otimo, para ir com familias e amigos. Como há várias piscinas, há opções de mais descanso ou mais agito. A comida e a bebida também é bastante justa com varias opções.

10/10 Exceptional

The hotel is fantastic ! The food, oh my Gosh ! The food is so good and so fresh, the staff is attentive and kind. We played tennis every day, some courts needs attention ( net was broken and bathroom was dirty). the special restaurants were awesome, we bought 2 bottles of wine with reasonable prices, again , the food and care is amazing. The shows at night were cool too. We watched boogie night, Michael Jackson and Bahia. The spa is very good, they probably need more spa attendants, but the massage was fantastic ! The pool area and activities were great. We had friends staying at Bahia , and we were able to visit several restaurants in both properties. I will definitely return to this hotel. I love I was treated and now I'll try to use Iberostar in Mexico and the Caribbean as well. Kudos to all staff members that made our vacation memorable. Thank you so much !!!!!

The hotel is huge, with several pools and entertainment options of the kids. The service staff is amazing and everything works. If you want to have good time with your family and kids, this is the place to be. However, the hotel is showing some signs that may require renovation soon.

Excelente
Cama grande confortavel, quarto amplo e agradável com vista do mar de verdade. Tem uma parte mais barulhenta por causa das atividades de animação, se quiser silêncio e sossego, peça para ficar longe. A comida é otima, muito variada. Os restaurantes temáticos são ótimos e só podem ser reservados a depender do número de diárias que você vai ficar, o que foi uma má notícia pra mim. As bebidas são variadas e muito boas. Alguns garçons te servem na piscina, embora demore bastante às vezes. O SPA é itimo para descansar. As medidas de contenção à covid são realmente levadas a sério

Amazing hotel and an unbelievable level of good service. Very good food and range of drinks. The prestige part was well worth the upgrade fee.
