We’ve just returned from a 2 week stay at the Grand Bahia Principe Bavaro. If someone had told us just how big this place was and how many hotels were actually on site and, how busy it was going to be, we probably wouldn’t have chosen this resort. But, don’t let that put you off! We chose this particular hotel... More

The staff are unhelpful, the cleaners might show up (or not). The food has much room for improvements and the gym isn't a gym. Treadmills are too old and really bad and the weights aren't much to talk about. On the positive side: you don't have to leave the complex thanks to its size. You have doctors and pharmacy in...

Large complex but well-managed, updated and comfortable. Room good and air-conditioning effective, balcony private and tree-shaded, restaurants good although limited menus in 'specialty' restaurants, variety of pools to choose from. Beach good and kept clean but not nearly enough seats for guests (in April!) and confusing policy over 'reservations'. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Just returned from a 2 week stay here and overall we were pleased but with a few small niggles. The resort is huge and a little intimidating when you first arrive, my husband got lost quite a few times in the first few days but we eventually got the hang of it. The little shuttles also run very frequently around... More
