Didn't want to leave

Posted Jun 30, 2014
Just spent 4 nights here on a quick little getaway. Wow! Everything is spectacular: accommodations, food and beverage, staff, location and amenities, grounds, everything. While food and beverage is expensive, as long as you realize before your stay it is not a surprise. I have to wonder about the folks who gave this property one or two stars. Even if you stay at the Four Seasons all the time this is still an exceptional property. You could find things to complain about but that goes for anywhere.

Perfect Long Weekend Vacation Destination

Posted Jun 17, 2014
Pros: This resort is essentially perferct. All the details are well thought out for your convenience. The staff is genuinely helpful and curteous.
Cons: The prices for breakfast at Fern were steep.
Location: Fairly convenient to go on a snorkeling cruise and see the forts of Old San Juan although the taxi fares are expensive. Do not bother to rent a car.
St Regis Bahia is the perfect resort for a long relaxing weekend in Puerto Rico. The hotel is simply fantastic! Our room was very large, beautiful and immaculate with a private balcony. Because of the design of the various units, there is no noticeable noise from any other guest rooms. The main resort areas were all spectacular. The pools are designed to provide an elegant private and quiet setting. The beach is wonderful with just the right amount of surf. The grounds are amazingly landscaped with bike paths, lake area, and bird sanctuary to give you a chance to exercise in the morning in a perfect rainforest environment. The night sounds of the frogs will always be remembered. The two restaurants were very good as well. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. This is the best island resort in the Caribbean especially if you are looking to relax. Probably best for couples or families with older children who enjoy nature experiences.

Incredible service

Posted Jun 17, 2014 on Hotels.com
We went to the St. Regis Bahai Beach for a 4 night babymoon and had a really wonderful trip. The hotel is gorgeous and sits on acres of lakes and green space, as well as on a lovely private beach. We stayed on the property the entire time so I can't speak to the surrounding area, but the pool and beach were relaxing and not at all overly crowded in June. The service was probably the best I have ever had and really made the trip. The spa is an oasis and I had a great pre-natal massage there. Take their advice and show up early (or plan to stay after) so you can enjoy all of the spa amenities. The rooms are even better than they appear in the pictures and all of the food we had, even though quite expensive, was delicious. The only negative things I can think to say about the hotel are: 1) the food and drinks on the property are very expensive. It would be great to have a more low key (and less expensive) breakfast option near the pool. The only current breakfast options are in room dining or at the nicer of the two on property restaurants, Fern; 2) there really should be an airport shuttle to get people to and from San Juan. The cab ride was around $65 on the way there and $70 on the way back. Be warned when heading back to the airport that the hotel only uses cab companies that do not take credit card. Overall we loved our stay and would happily return! We are missing Puerto Rico already.

beautiful quiet property

Posted Feb 22, 2014
Pros: Beautiful property, staff is extremely helpful and accommodating. Beautiful beach and pool. Food was delicious. Property is expansive and well kept.
Cons: Need more choices of restaurants...only one location for breakfast and 2 locations for dinner. Drinks are very expensive. No night life...quiet hotel
Location: About 30 minutes from san juan. Not really any night life nearby or on property at all.
Beautiful new hotel and property. Expensive (drinks and amenities $60 resort fee per day). Staff helpful and friendly - restaurants are delicious but not enough choices of places to dine.

Picturesque, but expected more from a 5* hotel.

Posted Oct 21, 2013
Pros: The pool and views around the resort were great. The quality and cleanliness of the rooms was also good.
Cons: The service at the restaurants and random "changes" to times and availability of the restaurants - just becuase it wasn't busy, was very disappointing
Location: The rain forest is close (10min) - just rent a car. Otherwise, it will take you about 30-40min to drive into San Juan or $80 cab each way.
When we arrived at the hotel we asked for our 2 booked rooms to be in the same building - the staff indicated the hotel was +70% occupency and could not accomodate our request. However, when we spoke with other staff and went around the pool and at the restaurants - they indicated it was VERY slow and only around 30% occupency. Given the slowness of the hotel, the St. Regis closed down the golf course restaurant on Monday & Wednesday (just due to slowness) and left us with only FERN to eat at for dinner. They hotel is quite far from any towns/restaurants - thus we were stuck eating at the same restaurant for 4 of 5 nights. Finally - not only did the staff decline our request to upgrade rooms, they didn't even light up the torches at the front entereance of the hotel indicating they only do that on Friday & Saturday (while in low season).... thus we had to walk back to our rooms in the dark. If you are looking for a romatic get-away and no real night life - you may like it & may have a better experience - but unfortunately, we found that on this trip the service at the restaurants or by the hotel staff was up to the 5* quality we had hoped or paid for.

Very nice resort

Posted Oct 18, 2013
We had a nice time.. Pool beach are beautiful. Rooms are nice not anything special, ours was the deluxe with a private balcony over looking paths to pool. Golf coarse is beautiful. The resturants are ok but need a better dinner selection. Went to fern resturant for my wife's 50th birthday I called them ahead to surprise her with cake, that never happened when it didn't the manager wanted to argue with me, while my wife walked away, I tolded him you only turn 50 once and he turned and walked away So we walked out. Other than that you need a golf cart to get around.
