About the property

2 Bedroom (sleeps 6), 3-full Bath Ocean Front Villa With Private Outdoor Patio

UPDATE APRIL 2018: Bahia Beach Resort & Golf Club re-opened in October 2017 and has been up and running ever since. In March 2018, Bahia opened a new Ocean Sports Club offering surfing, kite board and windsurfing lessons! (Currently the St. Regis Hotel is closed due to Hurricane Maria storm damage and will reopen in 2018). Members-only pool, (featured in the aerial view photo), golf, tennis and boat house are all functioning and open. Several restaurants onsite are also open. Thankfully our villa was untouched by the storm.

Please contact us for very special rental rates while our beautiful island of Puerto Rico is healing from the storm.

Why Gil Tollinchi chose Rio Grande

We have visited Puerto Rico many, many times over the years and have never felt both more special and more at home during our travels, than at Bahia Beach. Something kept drawing us back to this spectacular property and when an opportunity presented itself to own a small piece of it, we knew it was meant to be. We also love and appreciate that Bahia Beach is an Audubon Gold-Certified property. Excellent care is taken of the lush, natural surroundings.

What makes this villa unique

Whether you prefer a relaxing vacation or one filled with activity and adventure, there is something special for everyone. Days can be spent relaxing on the beach with a drink in one hand or riding bikes throughout the 480 (gated) acre community. We (including our kids!) never get bored here!

Stunning OCEAN FRONT Villa at Bahia Beach Resort & Golf Club
average rating of 5.0 based on 10 reviews

Paradise. Was delightful.

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at Bahia and had a great time.

If anything, the photos understate how beautiful it is. The view from the apartment was truly wonderful, and beckons you outside every moment. You can hear the ocean waves as you sit on the veranda. The nearby pool is great, and it's lovely being able to simply walk out of the apartment straight to the pool and ocean. The apartment is five-star - great layout, very tasteful decor/furniture, and great to have three bathrooms with large showers. Our kids loved the jacuzzi bath. It easily handled our five-person family, and with the pull-out in the living room and impressive inflatable bed could handle 8-9.

We have three children - 8 to 14 - and they have plenty to do on the property. They loved the water park. The fitness center was excellent. There's 3-4 places to eat. And golf, for those who are that way inclined. Having a golf cart to get around was really helpful, but walking the property - including along the beautiful beach to the hotel area - is easy, too. Don't miss the nature tour - the property is an Audubon-certified sanctuary - everyone enjoyed hearing about the plants and wildlife.

The owners were a pleasure to work with. Very responsive and accommodating. We booked late, but still everything was in place and ready for us as we arrived. The local concierge was really helpful, also.

Would recommend this place to anyone who wants a five-star piece of the Caribbean. PR is easy to get to with direct flights from many places, and the property is a quick, easy 30-minute drive.

Idyllic location set for families or couples

  • 5 of 5

This condo at Bahia Beach is set in an impossibly perfect location. An impeccable and accessible room at the most pristine beach (with a rainforest mountain backdrop as an option to explore) made us feel that we were staying at a luxurious Hawaiian resort via a convenient 3-hr flight to the Caribbean! A stylish resort, yet ideal for children, we found the excellent service and amenities made way for a relaxing and tranquil vacation for couples or families of any size. We could repeat this trip again and again!!!

Fantastic, well-appointed condo within a beautiful, 5-star resort, the St. Regis Bahia

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent five days in this wonderful condominium and we had a fantastic vacation. The condo unit is tastefully furnished with comfortable beds, appealing artwork, and state-of-the art appliances and bathroom fixtures. It has an ideal location on the first floor, allowing you to walk right outside onto the patio, a large grass yard (perfect for family games of frisbee or catch), and just a few feet away, a semi-private swimming pool complete with a large shaded patio / outdoor "living room" with towel service. Just beyond that is the beautiful beach with soft sand (and no hard shell fragments to ruin your walks along the water.) And right next door is a gorgeous, beach-front swimming pool with a full-service bar and gourmet restaurant.

We had access to the owners' personal golf cart, which was perfect for getting around the spacious resort. We utilized the Fitness and Wellness Center and took an excellent yoga class there as well. At the hotel property, we dined at the restaurants and walked along the beach.

The owners, Gil and Samantha, were extremely helpful to us as we planned our vacation and answered any questions we had. Also, the staff members at the resort were on hand to help us with any issues, and the concierges were very responsive and arranged dinner reservations, transfers to the airport, and taxis to take us to activities. (Just be sure to request that they reserve drivers at the most favorable rates; for some reason, there can be some inconsistency in prices quoted for taxi services.)

We also enjoyed the boathouse, where we went kayaking and our teenage sons swam and enjoyed the climbing inflatables water slides in the lake. We also biked around the property on the safe, flat bike / nature trails.

While we mostly stayed within the resort, we hope to return to Puerto Rico to visit the nearby Rainforest and spend some time on Old San Juan. And when we do, we will be sure to stay at this fabulous condo again.

An amazing unforgettable vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wow, we really cannot say enough about how amazing of a stay this was!!! No review will ever do it justice, we just left a few days ago and are already planning when we can go back next.

I proposed to my fiancé during this trip, and I could not have chosen a more perfect place or setting. The entire resort was indescribably breathtaking, from the views of the rain forest and mountains behind you, to the incredible view of the ocean-front beach views and palm trees that greet you whenever you look or walk right out of the condo. The service and amenities were both absolutely top-notch, and surpassed even the heightened expectations that come with the quality of a place like the St. Regis Bahia Beach.

The condo itself could not be nicer. Brand new quality appliances, marble everything, and exquisite art work to go along with a beautiful and elegantly modern decor, not to mention washer and dryer which was extremely convenient. It was just two of us, but the whole place could easily fit a much large family very comfortably. Plus a nice patio with comfy seats and a table to have drinks or just sit and watch the ocean or sunset.

We spent lots of time at the main pool, which offers spectacular view to the beach and ocean (though pretty much everywhere on the resort has equally incredible views of something), as well as the condo pool, which is private and just for condo residents, and perfect for when you just want to take a quick dip (and also has grills to cook food), yet could pass for the main pool at other resorts. There are also plenty of fun activities to do at the resort itself. We rode bikes through the tranquil and picturesque rain forest along the golf course, took the kayaks out in the lake, which has little coves and places to explore, hit golf balls against a backdrop of mountains, rain forest and palm trees, and fed fish and turtles in a little lagoon on the resort by the spa and fitness center (also brand new and top notch). There is also lots to do off the resort, including seeing old San Juan and salsa dancing in town. We also went zip-lining through the rain forest canopy, which was spectacular and definitely worth doing, and is only a short 15 minute drive from the resort. In sum, you can do as much or as little as you want, and have an amazing vacation.

Thank you for an amazing, unforgettable stay, we cant wait to go back!!!

Dream Location for Luxurious Family Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wow!!!!!! What a vacation. We brought our family of 7 (ages 5-15) to Puerto Rico for two weeks and were lucky enough to spend 10 days at Bahia Beach Resort in this gorgeous, beach-front condo. It was, hands down, the nicest family vacation we have ever had. Our entire time at Bahia was perfect and the associates at the resort were friendly and went above and beyond to make this a special trip.

The resort itself is spectacular--gorgeous and very private beach, club pool and separate smaller pool for the condo, access to bikes and golf cart, miles of beach and bike paths for walking and jogging, superb golf course-- and conveniently located 30 minutes from Old San Juan and the Rainforest.

We took advantage of the well equipped kitchen and the grill and outdoor living space both located at the condo pool, which was just steps from the condo's back patio. (The resort also had very lovely dinning options--all within a short walking distance--which we took advantage of as well. But it was nice to have a fully functional kitchen and ability to grill out to save some money on meals).

We also took full advantage of the washer and dryer in the condo, which we used a lot during our 10-day stay. We had gorgeous ocean views from each room in the condo. We slept 7 comfortably, with our children sharing the two double beds in the guest room and one on the pull-out couch in the living room.

The condo pool was very kid friendly just steps from the back patio overlooking the beach. Next door to that is the golf club pool with an excellent bar/restaurant that also offered towel, food and beverage service. The golf club pool also had beach chairs and umbrellas AND towels for use at the beach.

We were also able to rent a car through the St. Regis hotel on the resort property, which was super convenient. That allowed us to spend a day exploring Old San Juan and the Rainforest. (The Bahia team would have been happy to arrange private tours for those excursions too if we wanted that instead of renting a car).

We have vacationed at some exceptional resorts throughout the US but we have never stayed anywhere that was so lush, luxurious and relaxing. And the friendliness of the Bahia staff is unmatched. We will definitely be back.
