Spacious, clean rooms, excellent housekeeping, food was good, beaches outstanding. Wifi bad, ice hard to come by. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return. Norwegian Air is a top notch airline, and the direct flight from Rockford, IL was a pleasurable experience.

I'm currently at Esmeralda in Punta Cana. After having an incredible experience at the Sian Kaan in the Mayan Riviera we wanted to try a Bahia in Punta Cana because we have been to the Melia before stayed at the Level and loved it.

We were originally booked for the new sister resort Bahia Fantasy, however were moved to this property. It turned out to be a better fit as it was closer to the beach, adults only, quieter and smaller so easier to get around to the amenities.

Room was good, pools were good, beach was OK but crowded, grounds were well maintained. Food was the weak link - reservation system for non buffet restaurants was terrible. Hard to get a reservation and then when we went, the restaurants were half empty. Food quality was very average, nothing was really good. Nice place but we would not return.
