I am typically a very positive traveler and always try and see the good, but there were issues the whole week we were there. I visited Punta Cana and this hotel with a group of friends recently. Little did I know it was part of a huge group of hotels. This explains why they have call centers and why I... More

We loved the beach and from walking up and down it a few times, ours seemed to have the best beach front. We had a great time as a family with young adult children but found the nightlife pretty lame. We upgraded to Diamond but not sure it was worth it. Eddy was a big help when we checked in.... More

Loved the resort, clean, friendly people. never had it so good with sunwing reps, Tanya and Megal, be careful what excursions you book and make sure they are not cancelled like ours were and they didnt tell us. And make sure they dont over price you also paided way to much for excursions. Cheeper in the main lobby.

We went here as a family. My husband and I and our 2 year old son. Check in was done at the airport which means when you get there you can go straight to your room and not need to go to reception. Only problem with that is I quite like speaking to people and finding out where abouts everything... More

We stayed at the Grand Bahia Principe Bavaro from 2/21 - 2/28. We've been to Punta Cana several times, but this was our first time staying at this resort. Our villa (23) was in a great location. It was very close to the beach, pool and Santa Fe restaraunt. Because we upgraded to Hacienda Club, we were able to have... More

I had read all the reviews of this place and went to the website to be sure I knew as much as I could. We stayed at the Hacienda which was recommended. I scheduled in late October and called and requested to be able to see beach or pool. They promised we would. We got there and were taken to... More

My wife and I had an excellent holiday in Bahia Principe in Mexico so on this our first visit to Dominican Republic the Bahia Principe was our first choice of hotel. As in Mexico this was a huge complex with several hotels on one site. Unlike Mexico we, as Bavaro guests, were not able to use the facilities in the... More

1. Stated simply, the food was AWFUL, including a la carte restaurants 2. Food and beverage staff demonstrated total indifference to customer service and satisfaction. Example, two or three bartenders at the main pool bar would often carry on their conversations while many patrons simply waited for drinks. 3. There is one exceptional person that deserves special recognition. Isidro in... More
