This resort is huge, it is like a town all it's own. We followed the advice of other reviewers and requested a room close to the beach. They did not offer us the opportunity to upgrade to the club for even closer access. We asked and they made it appear to be a big struggle so we didn't push it.... More

First, I'd say that the Resort was really big and with a 4 year old, thankful for the tram to drive us around. It's quite busy with lots of families and young people having a blast. I'd say if you're wanting to go for a more relaxed and/or romantic trip, book one of the adult only buildings so that you... More

My husband and I just returned from our Honeymoon at the Grand Principe Bavaro. Our trip was from January 30, 2016 to February 6, 2016. We had an AMAZING time at this resort. I read MANY reviews before coming to this resort so I was curious how it would really be. We had a junior suite room which was close... More

Stayed at Grand Principe Bavaro January 13-19, 2016. We have stayed at roughly 20 different all inclusive resorts, and found this to be average. We are easy to please, so it takes a lot to upset us. Check in was simple, but could have used more people at the front desk. The rooms are nice, large, and clean. The buffet... More

Stayed Feb 1-8. Beautiful resort, very lush, very clean. Staff are mediocre; do not greet the guests at all as they walk by. Impressed that they follow up on service calls. Food is mediocre. A la carte restaurants are not fine dining; salads and desserts are buffet-style setup. Only allow 1 entre which doesn't make much sense after all, you... More

Stayed with a friend recently... Most trip advisor complaints were either seasonal and not relevant or the result of dramatics and not that accurate. The grounds are nice, very impressive. We upgraded to the hacienda which the price was advertised as a formula but it wasn't... We spoke to three people and the price changed 3 times... Shop around nothing... More

We went to the Grand Bahia Principe with adult children and grandchildren, the resort was great for a family. It is well maintained, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff is wonderful. The beach and pools are clean and well maintained, enjoyable to be at. The bars are well staffed, never a waiting line and bartenders always upbeat and... More
