The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort is complete with a golf course, a bird sanctuary, a multitude of trails, a beach, and a pool.
While we planned to ride bikes around the grounds or perhaps kayak in the lagoon, it was stagnant, so we spent most the day at the pool! My Texan travel mates were able to bear the heat in the shade while I had to take several dips in the pool. It was so hot, the staff was looking for shade regularly!
Needless to say, we didn’t soak in too many rays and a front moved in by the afternoon, so we fled the pool area and opted for Thanksgiving football. Unfortunately, the hotel’s cable went out just in time for the Cowboy game, but lucky for us Cowboy fans, the first half the Cowboys didn’t show up so we didn’t miss much.
Instead of Thanksgiving dinner, we tried traditional Puerto Rican food at the resort’s golf course restaurant, Molasses. While we all had a decent meal, Gary had the best skirt steak I’ve ever put in my mouth. It was tender enough to cut with a butter knife and mouthwatering good! We also enjoyed the more casual atmosphere while keeping an eye on the second half of the football game. As usual, too little, too late for the Boys!
A relaxing day of vacation at the St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort, though more and more vacationers have been arriving from the mainland. ETB
