This was our first visit to Bacara's spa and we were very impressed. The staff was very attentive and accommodating. Soraida was super friendly as we checked in. My fiancé and I had couples massages with Deborah and Susie. We were both very pleased with our treatments, and left feeling very relaxed. Also loved the eucalyptus steam room. Our experience...

This hotel resort is located at the most beautiful place with wonderful views. It is built in a Spanish hacienda style with individual Vilas. The outdoor area is spectacular and the facilities are excellent. The spa is way over-priced ($85 for a pedicure PLUS a service charge of 22%!!). The food we had during the conference was varied, healthy and... More

For a five stars hotel, it is disappointing. Reception is not worthy of such hotel. Only one attendant for multiple clients , so prepare to wait. And the concierge is never there. Rooms in building 9 are noisy. It is enough for your neighbor to flash the toilet or shower , you think it is happening in your room 😩

I paid Over 1150 for this partial ocean view suite because it is labor day weekend. Including tax it was 1300 but when I checked in and came to the room It has strong smell and I did not like it. Of course then I start look around and check out bathrooms.. This place definitely need renovation. Bathroom tile is... More

What a beautiful property! The valet was fast and friendly, the grounds are beautiful and the spa was very luxurious. With any spa treatment you have access to free valet parking, use of the fitness facilities and adjacent pool plus access to the entire spa (three levels). The massage service was great but the best part was the full access... More

This hotel is absolutely beautiful!!! It has two wonderful pools with views to the beach. The service is great and the staff is very helpful. Yes, the hotel is very expensive but think about it, you get what you pay for. The rooms are pretty big and the beds are very comfortable. Nothing negative to say about this place

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. The hotel has a number of positive aspects but in our view does not create a particularly relaxing atmosphere and is very expensive for what it is. On the plus side, the rooms are spacious and the bathrooms are modern and of a good size. The food at the Bistro restaurant which... More

So many options to provide the best message to indulge in your every need. Located in a beautiful building on the resort property. It is private, fragrant, and very accommodating.
