The hotel was average, customer service was lacking.

After I made the reservation on booking.com, someone called and asked me to switch to a direct booking with them and said they would give us one free night golf cart rental. Also said the room rate would be the same. Room was actually more expensive once I was charged and did not get free one night rental on golf cart. We checked in at 9:30 our first night and golf cart rentals were closed. The next day, when we went to rent it, they said they could only honor it on our first nights stay, and wouldn’t budge. Told him that there wasn’t an option of renting it the first night because they were closed, kinda shady that we were asked to switch our booking and got screwed over (more expensive, would’ve got a cash back reward with booking.com and no discounted golf cart rate.

Other than that, hotel was in a central location, rooms were clean and pool was fun, dj was great!

The big problem we had was this..... we are 3 women in our 60's. We rented a golf cart for the day and were told it had to be back by 10 PM. We asked if we could be charged by the hour if we had it later. The woman who rented it to us said yes. We were listening to music and came out to get our cart and return to the hotel. To our surprise the cart was gone. We called the hotel and they said they sent someone to take the cart since it was 1145pm. We had to walk back...very dark and one of us had a cardiac condition. The next day the same woman who rented us the cart denied telling us we could pay hourly after 10. She said we should have rented it overnight but this option was not presented to us. No one in our party will come back to this hotel. We come several times in the summer and thought we would try this hotel out. Never again.

1st-we have been coming to this hotel for years. It was getting run down and then got new owners. This hotel is close to the Bay , the beach, camping and close to restaurants . it's a really comfy friendly place. They are still working on some remodels, however the hotel is really looking Wonderful. I had more pictures of our room however I accidentally deleted an lol. This is one of the larger rooms we had 2 beds and a pull out foot on full kitchen And plenty of room for all of us. If you ever need anything they're only a phone call away and they are started doing their Mini breakfast is again. Breakfast would be the only kind of drawback they don't offer a lot but at least it's something to get you going for the day and it's included in your fee for the room. If you get a chance go on down and check it out it's a wonderful place to stay, nothing cancer, however very comfortable, , very friendly and and very very clean!!!!

Hard beds dirty needs a thorough cleaning and some of the staff needs to be trained on how to deal with situations. One thing I will say is that we didn't have a skillet in our room when I called the front desk the person said we don't have anymore I called back to speak to the manager and told her about things that were broken and that we had no skillets, the manager was concerned that we was told that and 5 minutes later the maintenance man was there and someone was bringing us 2 skillets. If you're older and don't like a lot of noise you might want to consider somewhere else to stay, nice music from the dj

I booked this resort at least a month ago for our upcoming visit. I originally spoke with someone directly at the front desk regarding a golf cart to be included with our room. We actually even changed our arrival date to accommodate being able to get the golf cart included. The woman at the front desk NEVER said you must call to book to receive that promotion, so like most people, I booked online. When I called to reconfirm and inquire about our reservation, I was informed we would not receive a golf cart because we booked online. This is quite discerning, since we've already booked an 8 person villa that we are paying $900 for and is nonrefundable. Now we have the additional cost of golf carts on top of that. After several inquiries with front desk personnel, no one would even attempt to help out our situation. Just be fully aware that once you book, you are completely committed to your reservation....no changes permitted whatsoever. I even asked to down grade our room to save money, but they did nothing to accommodate. You've got our money, we're staying there, what does it hurt to do a little adjustment to keep a satisfied guest?! I worked as a front desk manager at a resort for 5 years so I understand there are policies in place. But at least my staff was courteous and sympathetic enough to at least try to help and rectify a situation. This front desk staff is very rude and unwilling to help out in any way. If we wouldn't lose our nearly $400 deposit, I would've cancelled immediately. But we will not stay here again. A little courtesy can go a long way. I would think you would want satisfied, return guests.

Lol, how do I begin. Do I begin with how they took half amount of stay up front then charge full amount at end making it a big mess with my bank account, frustrating phone calls and stop payment costing more money and time not being reimbursed. Meaning we stayed two days and charged for three days and half a day taken to fix it???
Or do I start with the room where the door was broken previously and fixed and still didn't close properly leaving us unsecured?? Room 304
I guess I could also tell you about the bathroom light/ fan that was ready to blow up leaving us without lights , privacy to use bathroom, and no light to crap , shower, or change without bathroom door left wide open for some sort of light.
I could also mention their undiscovered rooms and non removal of free continental breakfast due to covid. Understandable to a point, but undiscovered or told their are only two places even open for breakfast on the whole island, needless to say we went without both days.
My final mention would be we were not told of wifi password upon checking in and had to go back down, stand in line and wait while others were checking in just to get it.
Also, if you are looking for an unheated pool , this is your spot! If you want uncontrolled loud , party place to sleep, this is your place!!! The golf carts are ok though 👌

The credit card that was used to book the reservation got hacked, and after getting a new credit card, the new card was also hacked after making the final payment at hotel.
We were suppose to stay at the resort Friday & Saturday, but due to bad weather we found out at 8:00am Friday morning that the only boat going to the island was the Miller Ferry which also cancelled trips to PIB after 11:30am. That left us with no options to take a boat in the afternoon for our 4:00 check-in time. Called resort for a refund, we were told no refund because a boat made trips to the island. We talked to others that had reservations at other hotels on the island and they were able to get refunds.
We did make it to the resort on Saturday, the resort advertised it was Spring Fling week and they would be serving dinner and drinks on Friday and Saturday and send-off breakfast on Sunday. Dinner was cold, buns were hard, drinks were limited to the number of tickets we were given at check-in and there was NO breakfast on Sunday.

Put in Bay Resort was highly over rated in terms of facilities and service. We made a mistake while reserving the rooms and the hotel was very adamant about charging me $25. Even though I called right away and wrote an email to a manager about a mistake I had made. My friend put in her information but did not finish, the site timed her out but put through two rooms in her name anyway and the receptionist denied that it happened. Customer service was very inconsistent with different receptionists giving different information. We were told bikes were allowed in the room and on a rainy afternoon with one receptionist cleaning doors, blocking everyone and 2 of them telling us to lock up the bikes outside in the rain, we had to insist that the information given to us was that bikes were allowed. When we went to rent a golf cart the staff was not willing to find it for us and my friend insisted on the second try that they pull it around when she couldn’t find it. All the while they said they were busy while 4 of them were standing around with the owner right there. Is this an example of a luxury resort and its service? The pool was also over rated and the lounge chairs worn and dirty. The picture misrepresented the actual size of the pool and swim up bar. The rooms were clean and the beds good with the cleaning staff efficient. Overall I would rate this hotel a 2.5. Luxury should not be included in the title.

Pictures on the internet are the only thing that does this place justice. This "resort" was the most disgusting place I have ever stayed. Staff was extremely rude and unkind. I swear I was drugged and almost died. I also have a bunch of pictures to prove how nasty this place was. Maybe you need to be so drunk you do not notice? These pictures are from our room. You literally have to tape around the door just to prevent from bugs coming inside...not to mention the spiders at ever corner that clearly have been there for a while. Dirty nasty sheets, not recommended at all. PLUS this was soposed to be my birthday get away, away from my kids just me and my husband. I wanted this so bad, this was beyond a huge disappointment. My room number was 257, if your rooms are diagonal from check in your screwed! They even have different lights hanging in front of the doors this section is the only section with out anti bug lights!!! Every other part of the resort you can see plain as day had not bugs except one section of the resort you'll know when you see it.

How about next time not drinking so much? We observed the video of your antics at the bar, your abusive attitude towards the staff who tired to help you up after you drank so much you could not even tell them what room you were in! Your husband came to the front desk and apologized for your behaviour and abusiveness to our staff. This is the only reason we permitted you to stay. Please do not come back.

My friend booked three villas for Friday, May 6 and Saturday, May 7 , check out Sunday, however the weather was so bad on Friday that there was no way to get to the island after 11 am due to jet express and ferry cancelling. So everyone was stuck , having to rent a hotel for the night until the next day when the ferry was running again. When asked about a refund or voucher , the Villa refused to do anything except let us stay Sat and Sun through Monday instead, which doesn’t help when we all work Monday!! Very disappointed in their customer service regarding the situation which we had no control over. We paid for two nights but only got to use one night, and it was not worth the price we paid. They also advertised free breakfast on the last day of the spring fling event (which was going on the weekend we stayed), on Sunday- there was no breakfast and when Asked about it they lol said they don’t have breakfast on the weekends-they totally false advertised. . They are a very GREEDY establishment. Do yourself a favor and do not stay here!!! There are nice places to stay all over the island that had much better customer service!!

Pool area not clean. Front desk area and breakfast nook small. Lots of crowds in public areas. Room was standard. We were on third floor overlooking driveway and it was quiet. In morning there was drunk guy sitting by a doorway; someone walked up to him and helped him up. I would look elsewhere.
