We stayed at the Gran Bahia Principe Bávaro from April 11-18 in DR. I did read about 10 pages worth of reviews before booking this vacation. I am writing this review from a perspective of a young couple without kids. We are not picky people, but when you pay thousands of dollars for a well-deserved vacation at a 5 star... More

I'll preface this with a little background of our group: this was a family trip with 10 of us traveling, including 2 small children (4-7 yrs) and one infant (1-2 yrs) and the rest adults. Immediately from landing at the Punta Cana airport, several things are foreshadowing your week: 1. You will be waiting a LOT. The line to get... More

Just returned from a 5 night stay at this property. We had a marvelous time and had no issues with check in/out, room cleanliness and amenities, property cleanliness or really anything. My only negative with the place was it's size, it is simply gargantuan. It is so big that they offer continuous tram service throughout. They offer enough pools, bars,... More
