We did receive a letter to warn us of the building work and we did try to cancel and re arrange but we are so glad we were unable to now. Yes the building... More

Unfortunately I have to write a poor review for this hotel. This was my first time in DR but I've stayed in enough All Inclusives to have to deem this place sub par. Rooms - are quite out dated so if you are looking for something more modern, this is not for you. The place is not clean either. There... More

We went there for a wedding - and the overall experience was awful! The process for booking any of the restaurants outside of the buffet was a pain. The food was terrible, most of my 80 family members got some kind of food poisoning.... On four different occasions, the front desk gave my family members keys to rooms where guest... More

The room was clean and tidy with great space and a lovely bathroom and a nice balcony to chill in the night. The food offered by the hotel more than superb with lots of variety to keep satisfied even... More

We just returned from a fab fortnight at the Bahia Príncipe in Punta Cana. The hotel is huge, but never felt crowded, although some mealtimes got quite busy. The buffet restaurant is very good and there's something there for everyone every day. I travelled with my wife and 2 teenage sons and they can be fussy eaters but never had... More

Vacation in July'13 - 2 adults and a kid with 2 and a half years. Is a very big hotel, with nice gardens, nice buildings and views, a great beach and nice pools. Nevertheless, the service is not great, the employees are not so nice as they should be. If you go on a tour around the hotel and find... More
