Families are treated right at Bahia Mar Beach. The resort sits on four miles of docking for sailboats and luxury yachts. Seven miles of pristine beach is accessible through the hotel’s skywalk. Take a glass-bottom boat ride and see angelfish right beneath you! Families can splash around in the outdoor pool or tour the tropical gardens. There are four tennis courts at the resort and many golf courses are in the surrounding area. Rooms are equipped with high-speed Internet, coffee makers and pay-per-view movies and games. Guests can choose rooms with views of the courtyard, marina or ocean. Babysitting service is available, so parents can enjoy a quiet evening out. A few casual restaurants and delis are at the resort, and there are many dining options in the area.

We travel a lot and were excited to stay in our top floor ocean front room. Well....it was so so loud! We kept checking the sliding doors to see if they were open. The noise from the A1A is relentless and there was music playing continuously from below. The table in our room was broken...it moved so much you could not put a drink on it. The ice machine on floor 16 was broken...we were told it has been broken for quite some time by the front desk clerk. On a positive note the staff were so nice and the food at Breezes was excellent. Breezes does not have much ambiance but everyone was so friendly. The room was VERY expensive and lets just say we were not impressed at all. There is construction going on everywhere so parking is at a premium. Right now you must use valet parking. There is no self park at this time.
As a whole the hotel was nice. We only stayed one night. The hotel was clean and well kept. The parking was inconvenient. The extra fee for parking was $41 a night. You can not self park. They did not have the man power to handle the cars. It was inconvenient having to wait to get your car and to drop if off.
