Rated 3 out of 5 by JPF312 Beautiful Place, a few issues
Overall, I would recommend this place.
-Fern Restaurant and Staff--grouper was excellent
-Bartenders at main bar--very knowledgable and friendly
-Activities--golf, kayaks, biking on nature trails, paddle boards, sunfish
-Spacious, well decorated room--awesome showers/bath
-concierge was helpful
-Spa treatments were excellent
But there were a few things I do not expect at a St Regis
-A/c didn't work or was on motion detector (was fixed)
-Area just outside room "under construction"
-In room breakfast--Continental breakfast (3 pastries, coffee, juice) coffee and juice were forgotten one morning and 20 min late another morning (to clarify it took almost an hour to get a few pastries)
-At some point, service staff used our umbrella in our room and we had to walk through rain
-I used spa facilities one evening at 5pm--steam room and sauna were Off, had to wait 20 min for them to warm up, returned next day around noon and the bath cloth/water bottle i'd left in sauna was still there
-The Jacuzzi in couples villa at spa was "under construction"
-The pool was over run with children all weekend--we love kids but expect them to be separated on a vacation like this
-Some service staff was aloof

Rated 3 out of 5 by sylena I was expecting more.
Based upon their marketing I was expecting a truly luxury environment, it was not the case. Beyond the spacious rooms and service everything else was traditional. I was expecting more for the price per night.

Great location for Golf, pool side, restaurants. Beach was very windy and really can't sit there. Away from most attractions so you have to rent a car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ovarelajr WOW!!...FIRST CLASS CUSTOMER SERVICE!!
Great overall experience! Awesome customer service. Every single associate we encountered were smiling, friendly and welcomed us to the property. From valet attendants, luggage attendants and shuttle drivers to pool attendants, restaurants servers and boathouse attendants, it was really first class service all throughout the resort!! Lunch at Seagrapes was great. I loved how the resort was incorporated with nature. It was amazing to just walk around and enjoy the scenery. Special thanks to Luis who greeted us at check-in and showed us the property, very professional, courteous and great personality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JasmineD The best weekend of my life
My boyfriend and I stayed at the St. Regis for Labor Day weekend and we just had the most wonderful time. As an SPG Gold Member, the hotel upgraded us to an Ocean Front room with Butler Service. It was the most beautiful room. The staff was incredibly helpful, sweet, and professional. The grounds are gorgeous. The restaurant, Fern, is delicious. Even the hotel lounge bar is a great place to relax, listen to live music, and have a great pre-dinner cocktail. I just cannot say enough about the St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort. I've never had a more relaxing and wonderful experience at any hotel or resort. We will definitely be returning as often as possible.

We spent 4-days and 3-nights at this incredible resort.
From our arrival to our departure, this was a perfectly executed experience. The staff did not miss a beat!!
We kayaked, walked the nature trails and beach and relaxed by the pool and beach. We ate at all the restaurants and enjoyed room service, too. The food was excellent and we are "fussy" New Yorkers.
I highly suggest that you reserve time at this resort for your next get away. We will be back !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tuco Excellent Staff
Our family of 4 just finished our 2nd excellent stay at this property. The staff were even better than we remembered - extremely attentive and genuinely friendly. The food was also better than we remembered, and in particular the private dining menu and service was excellent. Of course, everything carries a "resort" price tag, but the quality of the food and beverage and the accompanying service is high. We were lucky to see sea turtles hatching and crawling into the sea from the beach on the property, which was an unexpected bonus and was also handled well by the naturalists and related staff. We can't wait to return.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Deenie St. Regis Hotel in PR
Overall I had a lovely stay at the hotel. I do feel for the $65.00 resort fee there could have been more activities and amenities for the guests. In particular, complimentary shuttle service 1-2 times a day for guests to go to the local grocery store or locations within a 5-10 radius. Given the secluded environment this would have been a value add to the customer experience. Lastly, add an authentic cuisine from Puerto Rico. Foodies are always interested in experiencing local cuisine.

My now husband and I chose the St Regis Bahia Beach Resort as the location of our wedding. It is undeniable that the grounds of the Resort is truly a paradise and so breath taking. Though it rained on day of our wedding, the staff did everything in their power to make it perfect. Our butler JOSHUA was the Best! He was sweet, caring, personable, and professional, which made our experience relaxed and memorable. We brought our small dog on our trip for the first time. The Resort was pet friendly and the staff was so loving towards him which made us feel so welcome. We can't thank the staff enough for all that they did to make our experience the Best!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bertha2014 Excellent service, average comfort
We stayed for a weak in a low season. The service is exceptional, the personnel is friendly and trained, it's definitely a 5 diamond hotel service wise. The food is excellent. The Spa is a little expensive but on a very high quality level. It's far from the city and all the night life, be prepared to pay up t0 $200 a trip to get to civilization.
The disappointment was in the room itself. We stayed in ocean front suite, which is not actually ocean front but is surrounded by a garden. There is an issue with mosquitoes, cats and humidity. The AC in the rooms does not help, they probably need some kind of dehumidifiers installed. The linens are always damp and every night is a torture. The comfort ability of accommodation is less than average, especially minding the rates you pay.

From the moment to walk into the lobby, you feel welcome and the hotel staff makes your stay a memorable. I have stayed multiple times at the resort and plan to continue visiting the property as everyone in the family enjoys the service and the little details that really make a difference.
Best of all, the property is pet friendly and our dog had the best time of all.

My wife & I spent 5 days here. And are ready to go back. Everything was perfect. I could not have asked for a more relaxing environment. And I say all of this with the fact that my wife is not "the resort type." (And she LOVED the place)
Karlos M. (at the Sea Grapes bar) was the best.
We hope to be back some day!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Carol714 Overall great!
Two things that need to be addressed. Leaf blowing at 7:30 in the morning outside of room! Very next day, I had breakfast on balcony of Fern which is absolutely beautiful until the leaf blowing started! Breakfast food at The Fern was out of this world! And second issue I had was the eggs for the conference breakfast were terrible -- no flavor. Actually they didn't even taste like eggs! Rest of stay was great!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kelly3341 Great resort and exceptional service
I truly enjoyed staying at the resort, as part of a company meeting. I have a couple pieces of feedback:
1-When my Privacy light is on for my room, room service and housekeeping still knock until they don't hear someone and enter. That's not privacy. It's not possible to take a nap or have private time if some one is entering.
2-Room service was exceptional. However, inform chefs to take note with utensils they use to not cross-contaminate. My fruit plate tasted like onions, which was caused, I assume, by someone using the same knife for both cutting onions and my fruit plate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AllenKoz Loved it!
Everything was great- especially the room. Loved the walk-in shower! I endeavor to have one of those in my retirement home :)
Food was fantastic- everything! Even the beach bar was cranking out amazing cuisine! That is unusual for a resort to have such consistency in this regard.
Only knock is responsiveness of the staff (which may just be a logistical issue). Service was a little slow at times. For example, I called for a ride from our room to Molasses on Tuesday July 29. I was told by the front desk that she would have someone come to get us immediately for our 7 pm reservation. Well, nobody ever showed up to get us. That was disappointing. We almost missed our shuttle to the airport because the transportation staff made a mistake (told us the wrong shuttle etc)- I'm glad we kept double checking details, otherwise it could have been a big problem. There also needs to be a couple of more beach waiters. The resort is losing a lot of $ on missed drink orders!
I believe it was Orlando who helped with our bags and walked us to our room- he was delightful!
Another staff member (Jose) but spelled differently- went out of his way to fix my glasses that got broken. He was very nice and cordial. Small things like that make all the difference!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DaisyAnn Extraordinary staff, service and facilities
My daughters, our great grandmother and I stayed this past weekend at this magnificent resort. As soon as we arrived, from the valet parking staff, bellmen, to the staff that assist us through the process before check-in made us feel so welcomed and comfortable. My grandmother lost her beloved scarf and an amazing bellman, named Ceasar, was so kind with us, that more than assisted us with our luggage, he took care of the missing scarf and even went to our car to search for it and brought it to our room. She was so relief and happy! She is handicapped, and they assisted us with her transportation around the property, so she could experience every part of it. I will really want to thanks Mr. Eric Gonzalez for making our staying outstanding, comfortable and definitely a new "family tradition getaway" for now on. The property itself is amazing, surrounded by nature, with a rainforest at one side and the beach at the other. My two daughters, (10yrs and 13yrs) were never bored, as the used to say. We went kayaking, paddle-boarding, biking (complementary located inside the property), and then again, and amazing staff assisted us at Boathouse, even when it was my first experience paddle-boarding. They just made everything a very fun and enjoying experience. Mr. Eric Gonzalez who assisted us from our check-in process, up to the checkout. Thanks for every detail to make our stay outstanding, comfortable, welcome and definitely a new "family tradition getaway" for now on. Also, Naomi Santiago who assisted us so respectful and kind. It's just a heavenly paradise! complemented with the amazing staff and service that make the difference. The result: made our stay an unforgettable one and planning our next one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wellington A luxury resort hotel truly made you feel like home, relax and welcome
This luxury resort hotel is all about pleasing their guests and making sure all guests feel they are truly welcome. We are not so big on resorts in general, but this resort is a true exception. We returned to this hotel within a six-month period – though choosing between Bahia Beach and French Riviera was not easy, we are very happy to have returned here. When we saw Sr. Eric Gonzalez, Director of Front Office, we felt exactly like seeing a long lost brother. He made us feel so welcome and he paid attention to every details and spared nothing. We also observed that he would treat all guests with equally great care. We have travelled all around the world during the past 40 years, certain things we know to be impossible for people to pretend all the time. Eric as well as most people in the hotel are very real. Furthermore, the natural environment at the resort is equally genuine. Nothing is artificial. If you like good nature, nice weather and first class service, this is the place.

What a spectacular time we had at the St. Regis Bahia Beach. My wife and I were there for a company award trip and the consensus from all in attendance was this was the best of all the company award trips we had collectively been on. The staff was friendly and extremely responsive to our every need. The property was gorgeous and meticulously maintained. The food was really good, and portion sizes were big enough that my wife and I could split many meals and still be satisfied, despite typical resort pricing. The beach was beautiful and well maintained. We were on a call list to be able to watch the turtles hatch but missed it while in Old San Juan; other friends were notified as promised and were able to witness this miraculous sight.
As for the surrounding activities, I would recommend catamaran rides, snorkeling, and the rain forest activities. Our expectations weren't met at Bio Bay, probably because our research beforehand painted a much different picture of the experience we thought we were going to have. If you go, bring your own headlamp (my advice).

Great nature experience for the whole family. We are so blessed that our choice to stay at St Regis, to wake up in the the middle of a forest and yet to here the waves from the ocean was just totally amazing. Also I would like to thank the entire staff for being there for my every need. Thank you, Saint James NY
