We booked a short weekend trip to St. Regis for October, we had missed the opportunity to come here during the pandemic and we were really looking forward to our trip. Overall it did not disappoint… but there are some issues that could be improved. First of all the location is magnificent - beautiful surroundings, extremely well cared for property. Really lovely. The beach is amazing…. Very wide, sandy beach, the water is just the right temperature, and there were waves but not a strong undercurrent. Really lovely beach. We felt VERY safe with COVID precautions - this is very important to us! The rooms are very elegant - we stayed in a luxury suite, which I highly recommend. Two bedrooms with a second full bathroom. We did not really use the balcony but it was nice. Overall very nicely appointed and really nice little touches, like a refrigerator that works (actually chills!) AND that has enough space for our own drinks and water! Very comfortable seating - nice beds and bedding, well lit… All the sort of things that can make you feel comfortable (or not if you do not have them…). Housekeeping was also very good - did a very nice job each time. Plenty of soft towel, nice toiletries in the room. Plenty of water, etc. We spent most of our time on the beach, and tried to access the cabana’s when available (which often they were). The beach service was exceptional, friendly (but not too friendly), efficient, checked on us often (but not too often), and great recommendations for drinks etc. We ate all our lunches on the beach and the food was great - Pizza in particular is a great option for lunch at the beach. In terms of meals, the first evening we dined at the St. Regis Bar and listened to the Jazz - the Jazz was not bad… they took long breaks and were a bit off (needed to practice together) but nonetheless, very nice to have live music. The service was quite odd - friendly but then non-existent follow through. We ordered sushi rolls - which came after about an hour… but was very tasty and so we ordered another of the same thing but it was completely different… we gathered from other tables expressing concerns that we the waitress was giving our random rolls to people.. nonetheless, it was good (at least the first roll that we got….). We also dined at Paros one evening. This is a lovely place, beautiful decor and very nice and attentive service. The food was not as good, but we are still glad we dined here and would recommend. Although overall we had a great time and it a really nice low-key place with a great vibe and interesting clientele. … We had two issues, which take it down a notch for us… First of all, we could not play golf - AFTER we booked we learned that there was a tournament and so there were no tee times available. If we would have known that we would had adjusted our travel days… Additionally, it just did not look full so it seemed that they had just blocked out the tee times but not necessarily that they needed them all for the tournament. We booked here for the golf and could not play… AND the hotel has no control overt the golf club. They really need to think this through. Our second main point of concern was the concierge, which was really off and numerous mistakes… Firstly, when we first asked about the golf (which was the day after we booked) they told my husband that “likely tee times would open up…” but when my husband called the golf himself, they told him that they had a tournament so unlikely any tee times would open up. But this was not the only misstep of the concierge, they were supposed to cancel the SPA appointments for me — O had booked SPA when my husband was supposed to golf but then canceled immediately when he could not get a tee time. - I checked (in writing…) with the concierge twice to confirm they had canceled the SPA and they assured me that they had but when I showed up at the hotel, they still had the SPA listed.. and the SPA called me to confirm. Last big misstep was to confirm the wrong time for our dinner at 1919 restaurant in San Juan (amazing btw). They confirmed a time for 8:45 pm when our dinner was at 7:15 pm - and the concierge insisted they had the right time. My husband actually went to talk to them in person to make sure… But when we confirmed directly with the restaurant it was 7:15 pm (as we had booked originally) So, overall - this is a great place BUT book golf BEFORE you book your stay or at least at the same time - AND try to avoid the concierge who seem to be incompetent…

My wife and I stumbled into childcare relatively last minute prior to our anniversary weekend. So, we decided to take a short trip. We couldn’t risk destinations with Covid Test requirement for the return trip (as our kids weren’t with us). That meant staying within US boundaries-- we chose Puerto Rico. Our flight down arrived relatively late (9:00ish). We arrived at the resort around 10pm, and were greeted by name by our assigned butler and the valet. The entrance of Casa Grande (the lobby building), complete with firepits within the large Koi Ponds was quite impressive. When they learned we had not had dinner yet, they helped us order in-room meals so the food would arrive soon after we got into our room--I thought this was a nice touch. Dinner ordered, we progressed with check in. Immediately, the agent thanked us for our loyalty and informed us that, as we were Titanium level, they were able to upgrade us to an Astor Suite! We could not have been happier with our choice at this point—this is a vast improvement over our recent stays and would-have-been recent stays in other Bovoy properties, to say the least 😊 Check-in complete, one of the butlers transported us to our suite (the resort is spread out over multiple buildings, each connected via cement paths or boardwalks through the lush rainforest in which it sits). The room was huge—1,300 sq ft. In it, a ‘welcome drink’—a bottle of Prosecco, and a handwritten note thanking us for our Marriott loyalty and wishing us a happy anniversary and an extraordinary stay. Our luggage arrived before we did. All in all, 10/10 for check in. In room dining was a bit underwhelming (the chicken dish was quite dry). But we were so happy with the room, that this did little to change our impression. We sat on our large patio and enjoyed the treats left by the staff. Breakfast (complimentary continental buffet for those above certain elite status, a slight charge to upgrade to the full hot breakfast, which included mimosas and made-to-order omelets) was good! I was concerned about food quality after reading some of the recent pandemic-era trip reports—and based on in room dining—but we were quite happy with the food overall. After breakfast, we made our way over to our cabana. This presented the only negative experience of an otherwise flawless vacation: another family had camped out in the cabana we reserved. Sparing the minutia of what happened next, we opted to just hang at the beach. To his credit, Jonathan (the Cabana rentals/pool area manager) made things right by us, even though it wasn't the resort's "fault". St Regis Bahia Beach—and Jonathan specifically—went out of their way to live up to the promise on their welcome note: we were indeed having an extraordinary stay. The rest of the stay was excellent. That night, we drove to El Yunque Treehouse. I had crab empanadas and smoked pork mofongo (embarrassingly, I forget what my wife had—I am pretty sure they custom made a dish for her/picky eater). It was quite quiet when we arrived, almost off-putting when we drove up-- to be honest, but we are so glad we stayed. Lovely, family run restaurant. The spa was the theme for our final full day. Aside from a lack of notice about no hot water in the men’s locker room, we thoroughly enjoyed our couples massage. Our final dinner was at the Beach Club. Our waiter was great (I wish I remembered his name!). He asked what I like, and brought out a massive whole fish (Red Snapper) dish that was delicious and quite impressive in its presentation. Overall, this trip was a success. We would go back here in a heartbeat.

Just returned and loved it! Room upgrade was fantastic and service and the team who work here are fantastic. Due to covid yes some confusion about things but we are used to that these days. We did not leave the resort as it is far from all and we did not have a car. I have found after much travel that it usually is not worth leaving the five star hotel. We made the best of the very limited dining. The sushi was excellent and the staff couldn’t have been better. Everyone seems very happy to work there which is always a marker for me. Gym decent, beach and pool gorgeous plenty of lounge chairs we never had to fight for a place. Plenty of towels and staff to serve. We loved it and would absolutely return. Breakfast each day very good. Lunch in lounge chairs was good. Beach club a disappointment and confusion over whether it was part of hotel because they would not let us charge to room so bring your cc. Yes the daily fee was excessive especially due to such limited service but it seems to be standard these days. Overall excellent . We will return.

I’ve just returned from an anniversary getaway to The St. Regis and I was so sad to leave. Every part of the trip was perfect. We arrived in the early afternoon and had the hotel organize private transportation from the airport. The arrival and airport greeting was seamless. The hotel is approximately half an hour away. We checked into our St Regis Oceanfront suite. The suite was very large, with a bedroom, large ensuite, living room, bar, and a second bathroom with shower in the living room. The view of the ocean was unbeatable from the second floor. The hotel was only at 25% capacity because it was low season. It felt like we had our own private island. The grounds are stunning. I have stayed at many hotels in San Juan but this was much more intimate and luxurious. However, what really set the hotel apart from others was the top notch service. The butler team works tirelessly to ensure that every guest’s needs are met. Every staff member was unfailingly friendly and helpful. I had read some negative reviews before we arrived. Yes, the hotel and food is expensive. But I didn’t really expect anything to be cheap when I booked at the St Regis. At the end of the day, you get what you pay for in life. And at the St Regis, I paid and received unbeatable service and accommodations. A few helpful tips. There are limited food options. For dinner, there are only two options at the hotel: the fine Dining Paros and the St Regis bar. A short walk on the beach (or a short golf cart ride by a staff member) can you take you to the Beach Club. Every meal was delicious but if you are staying for a week you may get bored of the food. Another on-site restaurant option would be nice since the hotel is far away from anything else. There are tiny little bugs outside in the evenings. Take advantage of the anti-bug wipes in the room to prevent them from biting. I can’t wait to return. I’ve already booked a return trip in January with my entire family.

Stayed five nights at this beautiful property in early October. The property is gorgeous the grounds are stunning, our room (St Regis Suite) one of the nicest rooms I've ever stayed in. The St. Regus is in a quiet area, be mindful if you book here, going off site is a little tough - you will need to rent a car or pay $100 for transportation each way. Restaurants excursions etc typically 30 to 40 minutes away, but if you want to get away for a few days and chill on the property - it's a great venue for that. I write this review with mixed emotions because it's very clear that the staff is excellent (especially the butlers) they try hard they're very willing to accommodate, additionally when we brought issues to management they could not have been nicer and worked hard to make it right. My concern is basic simple things that any restaurant, any diner, any bartender could nail without blinking, the St. Regis (as my dad used to say) couldn't find their way out of a paper bag. Our first evening here we ordered from the tapas restaurant. We ordered the beef tartare to share, I ordered a bacon cheeseburger, for my main my companion ordered the pumpkin rice. When the beef tartare came out it had one slice of toast so we requested a second slice since we were sharing. While they made it, I cut the one slice in half and we started to enjoy the appetizer until the second slice of toast came out. When we got the cheque for dinner we were uttered stunned to find we were charged $5 for that extra slice of toast! Meanwhile the upcharge for bacon for my burger was $3. Unfortunately my cheeseburger came out without the bacon, as the waiter forgot to mark the request on the ticket -( this marked start of pretty much almost every single meal we ordered having a mistake - more on that). Now we did complain to management about the excessive charge for the toast and they did take it off the bill, but I have to say that stuck with me the entire trip. How is a slice of toast $5 and bacon strips $3? Look we're at the St Regis, food is outrageous - my mini cheeseburger was $34 fine we'll pay it....but $5 for an extra piece of toast on a share plate? Utterly outrageous. Next was breakfast at Sea Grapes. I ordered eggs over easy with wheat toast. I ordered this three times in the 5 days we were here. Never once did it come out right. We were even joking with the wait staff. Twice the eggs were so overdone I literally had to send them back. On our very last day, the eggs finally they came out perfect! I never did get the toast correct however - not one time. It either came out wrong (white) or the eggs came out and proceeded to get cold while I waited for the toast. Like I said - basic stuff. You bring the eggs, bacon and toast out at the same time... that's breakfast service 101. Midweek the resort was very quiet about 20% capacity so it's not about being overcrowded. I really couldn't tell you why it was such a struggle. Drink orders wrong, lunch orders delayed, (lunch should not take 1.5 hours). Another example: Our suite included coffee service in the morning, I requested hot coffee, my companion iced. Twice we only got a glass of ice and a coffee cup for the hot. Once we got two glasses of ice - with a carafe of hot coffee - no coffee cup for hot coffee. Finally the last two morning we got glass with coffee and ice (yay) and a coffee cup and a carafe of hot. Again - this is basic stuff: coffee order: 1 iced 1 hot. Now again, when we pointed out these errors, the staff was very quick to please and correct. I'm not sure if these issues are operational or training but at a 5 star, 6 diamond resort it shouldn't be happening. Our last full day we went over to the beach club, it's about 11:30am and we were swimming in the pooI. We were asked to leave the pool so they could clean it. Really? Saturday morning, prime time resort full of people (occupancy now at 70) and now they choose to clean the pool? Again - this is basic stuff, clean it at 8:30 am not 11:30 am while asking your guests (paying a $99 a day resort fee) to leave the pool for the crew to do so. We brought this to management and they kindly removed the resort fee for that day, (again very polite and extremely accommodating) but it shouldn't be happening at a resort of this caliber. I will say our best meals both were at Paros. We had the Tomahawk steak special (fantastic - perfect meal and service) and we had a chef's tasting AMAZING! I am hopeful that most of these issues were driven due to a post covid environment. I know many areas are struggling with staffing. I'll also note that none of these issues resulted in our stay not being enjoyable. It's a beautiful resort, the people are lovely, the buildings are stunning, and the staff does work so hard and go out of their way to please the guests. But meals are a big component of any vacation and the spotty, hit and miss meal situation won't have us running back. As one would expect, the meals here are extremely expensive, its very tough to leave and go off site to eat as most restaurants are at least 30 minutes away. My advice to the resort is to just simply tighten up meal service especially breakfast, to provide your guests with the experience they come to expect.
