The Hyatt Baha Mar is positioned in Nassau, Bahamas on Cable Seashore. It’s a few 12-15 minute drive from Lynden Pindling Worldwide Airport. The quick drive from the airport was a very nice shock as we’re used to double that to get to Atlantis. Click on right here for my overview of The Cove. I’ve at all times discovered the simplest strategy to get round Nassau is by cab. I’ve been utilizing the identical driver for about 5 years now. Once I ebook my flights I e-mail him to let him know our arrival time and that’s it, he reveals up with a cooler filled with home made Bahama Mamas. Be at liberty to remark if you need his contact data. The cab value $40 for four folks (it varies based mostly on the variety of folks and distance.)
As you may see the examine in space is gorgeous. We arrived round 10am and there was no line. There have been solely two folks on the entrance desk, however they have been in a position to take us and our buddies in a separate occasion straight away.
As a Hyatt Explorist, I hoped for a room improve however I wasn’t precisely banking on it because it was the day earlier than New 12 months’s Eve. The worker checking me in knowledgeable me that because the lodge was full, it could be laborious to present me an upgraded room however she “was going to see what she may do”. She repeatedly made point out of my Explorist standing and talked about it to different staff who stopped by the desk. In the long run, I received an ordinary room with my alternative of view, no improve.
The entrance desk agent escorted to our tower on the other web site of the resort, mentioning a bevy of retailers and eating places. This was a pleasant contact and we appreciated the personalised consideration.
Sort of Room
Hyatt Baha Mar Fountain View King Room Overview (West Tower)
As I entered the room, the very first thing I observed was the shiny marble ground, no carpet which is totally different than most lodge rooms. I assumed it seemed actually subtle and clear. The room was about common dimension with an everyday King mattress, small desk and seating space. General, the room was stunning, fashionable and crisp trying. I’m positive it helped that the lodge is model new and there was completely no put on and tear on the room.
The toilet was very good and had an fascinating design. It has sliding doorways that open absolutely in an effort to see the remainder of the room. One factor I didn’t respect was that the bathe isn’t absolutely enclosed so there was a little bit of splatter on the lavatory ground.
All the rooms have first rate sized closets outfitted with robes and Baha Mar branded flip-flops. There may be additionally a secure, which is nice to maintain your valuables and additional money for the on line casino.
Nearly all the things within the room may be managed with the pill offered within the room. It is a good contact that I principally see in Las Vegas. One other good addition to the room is a blue tooth speaker you may join your electronics to. The espresso set-up was very nice and featured a Keurig machine with a number of forms of Okay-cups. There may be additionally a mini-bar that was nicely stocked and never that unreasonably priced.
Notice: In case you are bringing youngsters and want a bathtub- be sure to allow them to know, as a result of not all layouts have tubs.
Hyatt Baha Grand King Room Overview (East Tower)
I had the chance to remain in each towers as a result of my flight was cancelled because of climate. The usual room within the East Tower was a really totally different format than the opposite tower. We preferred the look of it higher. Additionally, the bathe was a lot improved because it was absolutely enclosed. Apart from decor and format, there’s not a lot of a distinction between the towers. So far as rooms go, Baha Mar blows Atlantis out of the water.
The out of doors space has 7 totally different swimming pools, every with it’s personal distinctive vibe and format. There may be one pool that’s solely for individuals who lease out cabanas, it’s small however overlooks the property and feels very unique. We didn’t really feel the necessity to lease a cabana as a result of there have been solely 4 of us and it wasn’t that busy. I can’t think about what loopy costs they’d cost for prime house cabanas.
One of many fundamental swimming pools has each a 15 foot and 9 foot cliff leap the place you may dive off of rocks into the deep finish. I went as much as the upper one to leap off and chickened out, however the others in my occasion actually loved it and went a number of instances. This gave the impression to be a fairly common attraction with youngsters of all ages (numerous adults too).
A extremely nice contact that I haven’t seen earlier than are the person restrooms scattered all through the out of doors areas. The restrooms are quite a few and intensely well-maintained. I might think about they’d be an enormous comfort for fogeys with little children since they have been each personal and accessible. Typically, out of doors loos at seaside/pool areas go away a lot to be desired however these have been implausible.
The model and vibe of the opposite swimming pools range broadly. I believe there’s in all probability a pool to go well with anybody’s style as there are such a lot of to select from. Whereas there is no such thing as a designated grownup pool, there are positively some swimming pools with an older extra relaxed ambiance. On this respect, Baha Mar does a superb job of catering to many alternative audiences.
I used to be stunned to see that solely one of many swimming pools has a swim-up bar. The truth is, many of the swimming pools don’t have a bar in any respect.
Main Con: Sadly, Baha Mar will not be resistant to the age previous drawback of seat-saving. I don’t suppose it could be an exaggeration to say that by 9 AM every day there have been practically 1,000 empty seats with towels on them. I assumed for positive at a resort this massive with this many swimming pools we’ll be capable of discover empty chairs. Nope, no the place, not even on the seaside. Usually at a lot of these resorts the pool/seaside employees will stroll round clearing empty chairs with towels, however they didn’t try this once we have been there.
The seaside is completely stunning and is nicely outfitted with seaside chairs and water actions. One factor I actually love in regards to the seaside is that they put playground like tools and rafts within the ocean. It’s good to be within the water and have one thing to do apart from swim.
A technique the seaside expertise could be improved could be to provide cushioned lounge chairs. At some luxurious resorts there are plush cushions on the chairs and it actually makes a distinction. The service was missing on the seaside as nicely, however we’ll get to that later.
Grand Hyatt Membership Lounge (In depth overview coming quickly.)
The lounge may be very massive and has a number of indoor and out of doors seating areas overlooking the fountains. There are a number of rooms, together with a seating space with giant TV’s and couches, a convention room and workplace space with a number of desks/computer systems.
Throughout breakfast and dinner hours there’s a full unfold with an honest assortment of meals. The remainder of day you may cease in for a beverage or mild snack. (Operative phrase right here is “mild”, cookies and goodies for instance.) There’s a very good high quality espresso machine that makes a wide range of drinks like lattes and cappuccino and a wide range of milk decisions together with soy. Additionally, a number of fridges stocked with juice and soda.
One factor that actually bothered me is that they have been continually out of plain bottled water, there was loads of glowing water but it surely appeared they couldn’t maintain the little Evian bottles in inventory.
Hyatt Baha Mar Lodge Overview Half 2 (coming this week): Casinos, Restauarants and The Downfall of Baha Mar: Service
The following a part of my overview will element the remainder of the resort facilities and actions and embrace the remainder of the resort pics. Sadly, service is an space the place Baha Mar falls very in need of the mark. There have been so many situations of poor service on our 5 day journey, I needed to do a two half overview!
