The pros: the hotel is in a wonderful location, the grounds are beautiful and the pool was lovely. Manuel at the front desk was great.
The cons: the hotel is older and not kept up very well. If you rent from an owner who has looked after their suite you will probably be happy. (Our suite had paper thin walls, when they spent two days hand-chipping out the shower tile we heard it, when the family with three small children moved in next door it sounded like they were in our suite with us. The cupboard doors were falling off, mold in the showers, cockroaches and salamanders in our suite. The kitchen sink didn't work. The windows didn't have proper blinds.) You can't drink the water so you have to constantly purchase water and ice. There weren't enough chairs for all the guests around the pool and beach, but 15 or so were purchased while we were there. The wifi is terrible.

We have stayed here on 2 occasions, we love it will be back again. The beach is great, the staff at the front counter are very pleasant and helpful. The pool is awesome....unfortunately the wifi is spotty but we pretended it was the 90's and turned our phones off . We were looking to do some activities in the area and received great help and advice from Augustin. He hooked us up on an ATV trek twice (group of 8 and a group of 2)and was very very helpful, when we run into him on the beach its like seeing an old dear friend.

We are looking forward to our next trip to Nuevo and staying at Bahia Del Sol.

Unfortunately the employee Augustine (Gus) who works for BDS hotel resort excursion/tours located on the beach was less than honest. Bf & I wanted to go on an excursion, specifically asked if transportation would be provided/included there & back to the hotel. We booked the excursion specifically because the transportation was included as we did not have transportation for ourselves. We also asked if there would be an additional cost for transportation, which we would have been willing to pay him. Gus reassured us transportation was included & did drive us the day we booked. Gus brought us to the marina. However, Gus did not pick us back up, we waited for over an hour at the marina. Thankfully we found a taxi driver who did not take advantage of us, we eventually got back to the hotel. Bf saw Gus a few days later & tried to ask what happened? Gus became very aggressive & said there was not mention to pick us back up – said he did us a favour. Bf then said why would you even bother to bring us there if it was a favour? Gus began to flail his hands in the air, cussed profanities in both English/Spanish & walked off the job/beach.

We stay here every year mostly in March and love the staff and many friends we have made here over the years.....it is an intimate setting with a family/friends atmosphere.
This is definitely not a luxury hotel but has lots of charm. Two major things we would like to see improved is their internet services and a heated pool.
Management staff are really working hard to make improvements annually to maintain this little hidden gem.

Room Tip: Request a room in Building D, E or F for best breezes and view of the ocean

The other guests who return each year to this resort is why we return each year. The location is fabulous, being right on the beautiful sandy beach. However, Bahia del Sol needs to do two things if they want to attract more people: (1) update their internet connection and (2) heat the swimming pool. At best the internet is very poor - going off and on at will, three days without internet in this day and age is unacceptable, with most people wanting good connection. Also hardly anyone uses the pool as the water is so cold. If they do go in, they certainly don't stay in for very long. The resort has tried to improve some of their services and the grounds look fabulous. But PLEASE take note and do something about those two items.
