My wife surprised me with a trip for my 50th birthday and we had a fantastic time. The property is beautiful. From the very beginning, we were treated graciously. Are room was in the portion furthest from the beach but near a large pool and most of the restaurants, shops and the casino. The tram system was a must for... More

Resort This resort is huge! There are over 7,000 people here. You must rely on the commuter train to get anywhere in this community style resort, unless you enjoy walking a lot. This gets a little tiresome after a few days. Restaurants The buffet food was always good and fresh tasting with lots of variety and the kitchen staff were... More

This is the best party resort you will find in Punta Cana and probably the world. Bahia makes sure to stay modern and puts money back into their resort. They have modernized all their rooms with Flat screen TVs and have built a new casino with 2 floors. I have gone to the complex 4 different times and I NEVER... More

Let me start off by saying this isn't everyone's type of resort. This is a very large resort and by saying large is an understatement. For someone who wants to relax on vacation and not have to worry about reading a map constantly while in their resort, this ain't the type of resort for you. You have to travel many... More

I was in GBP Bavaro, villa 78210. Near to lobby and swimingpools. Everything was excellent. Everyone should be there. The only problem is the airport. Crowd of people and terribly expensive. Do not buy pesos in cash cambio - not profitable. It is better to take out money from an ATM.

Please be careful with any possessions that you take to the hotel. My partner and I stayed at the Grand Bahia Principe from 28.11.2014 - 05.12.2014. A bottle of aftershave went missing from our room and in spite of an 'investigation' by the Guest Services area no explanation was provided and it was suggested we had taken it out of... More

This facility far exceeded my expectations. The cleanliness, friendliness of staff and ALL of the accommodations were superb. It is good to know some Spanish prior to your arrival, it really helps with communicating with the staff. Everyone one was very helpful. The food was sustaining. If you want true Dominican food you will have to venture off of the... More
