    Property was good. Secluded location. Large area. Were having a refurbishment at the time but allowed guests to use another hotel, albeit 3km away. We hired a car which made it easy to transfer a to b. No double beds but 2 singles pushed together, worked for us.

    The staff are super friendly and they have live performances most evenings. They also do three different shuttles to nearby town, marina and beach. There breakfast is average buffet. For the price it goes way beyond.

    Have been many times and have never been disappointed. When we arrived this time we were told the inside pool was unavailable due to renovations being done but we were able to use another hotels facilities and Baia Grande provided transport to and from there. Staff are always polite, friendly and nothing is to much trouble for them. Bar area is bright and has a fantastic view of the outside pool area which is lovely. Can’t wait to return.

    Overall my partner and I had a pleasant stay at Hotel Bahia. The hotel was very clean and the rooms were as advertised which was good. The con's - The breakfast choices were not vast and could do with having more options. The pool area also could have done with a bit of modification. Given that we stayed in winter season, the use of the indoor pool would have been beneficial and made our stay more comfortable.

    Bland Hotel baia grande

    I don't know how this a 4 star hotel, far from it maybe in the 90s as well as the menu it seems stuck in time , buffet evening meal was over priced at 25 euros and very bland and nothing Portuguese about it, had better meal at soa Rafeal which IS round corner for the same price with drink best food ive had in long time , disappointed with cleanliness of my room , Bathroom wasn't clean for the entire time i was there. One last thing i checked out at midday but wasnt being pick up until 5pm so went out and enjoy the last of the sun before home and lest baggage behind , on my return i ask if i could freshen up ie shower as i hot from being in the sun and the beach , the management refused me a place or a room to use even though the hotel was far from fully booked , they said i could use the toilet, which i had choice but use it to get change in so i had to travel back sweaty and smelly , ive never had this treatment before for all years i have travelled , would i say money well spent got to say a big no .
