Positive Reviews

Child friendly

A lot of kids enjoyed staying the Baia Cristal There is a pool made for them They could also enjoy shows and activities in the hotel In fact, the kids enjoyed a lot; they even asked their parents to come back.

Negative Reviews

Additional fee for Wi-Fi

Guests can use the Wi-Fi in the rooms and lobby for a surcharge This is a little odd for some guests because of the hotel’s four-star rating They expected it to be free However, those who paid for the Wi-Fi were not disappointed They enjoyed using the Internet in a high speed, which made their payment worth it.

Minor issues with sun beds

Some sun beds look a little outdated Others have broken heads and needs fixing or better yet, replacement Due to this, the number of the sun beds is not enough during peak season However, the management started to fix the problem Moreover, this minor issue did not prevent guests from enjoying.

Shuttle is only on weekdays

The free shuttle service going to town is available on weekdays only However, the centre is just a couple of minutes away Moreover, this matter did not have a huge impact on the whole trip.
