April 10th to 17th with Westjet. Paid extra $160 with westjet to have 4 seats together as we were travelling with 6 yr old twin boys. Found out later that they would have booked us together anyway but Westjet never told us that. They mispelled my wifes name on boarding pass which delayed us at the airport, had to wait... More

Everything from the food , to the customer service, to the scenery was amazing ! The evening events at the resort will have you dancing all night.

I stayed here for a week from 9 April with my daughter and her family. We had visited the Dom Rep previously in 1997 when I found it charming and had always wanted to return. I had read with interest reviews for this hotel and found that some of them were quite damning, however, we had a lovely time here,... More

Just got back from the GBP Bavaro in Punta Cana and thought I’d provide you with a brief review of the resort. (1) This resort is absolutely huge with something like 6 or 7 hotels on the property. Had I known this, we would never have gone there. One hotel employee told my wife that there were 36,000 people there... More

I read trip advisor on every trip for research but I have never reviewed.....

This Place was amazing!! I'll admit that I was a bit worried about the size of this resort after reading about it on this site, but once there I enjoyed being able to explore all that the Bahia had to offer.
