Well maintained and comfortable all-inclusive resort, offering excellent service and very good food. This is a large ocean front property that requires using the non-stop shuttle services to get around. Buffet style and cooked to order food is served continuously and throughout the complex, and there are bars throughout the lobbies and beach areas. Overall it was surprisingly enjoyable and... More

Food - The buffet was good, the optional restaurants served some exceptional fare. Beach and Pools - were great, although crowded. Rooms - Clean and modern, would have liked more control of A/C, upgrade to Hacienda club is worth it.

The Grand Bahia Principe Bavaro was absolutely wonderful from the time we checked in with Apple Vacations to the time we checked out! The place is surprisingly huge, but the tram cars come every 3 minutes. Not once did we have to wait long. Lots of shops, bars, restaurants, entertainment and pools - you feel like your in a town....

Lovely hotel very clean and well looked after. Beach and pool areas great. Little trains that run from one end of hotel to other are great. Lots of restaurant choices. Only thing that spoilt it for us was a number of drunken young Americans but usually room to get away from them.
