First of all, if you're a group of younger people and looking to have a lot of fun, choose another resort! We were a group of 20 year old women visiting this resort on our reading week and we were by far the youngest people at the resort (the majority of the rest of the visitors were aged 65+ and...

To the Management of Tripavisor and the Reviewers, All the reviews posted here under “Grand Bahia Principe Samana” refers to “Grand Bahia Principe Cayacoa” IN the City of Samana! There is only one reason for this, namely “Grand Bahia Principe Samana” does NOT exist. There is a “Luxury Bahia Principe Samana” which according to the GBP official site http://www.bahia-principe.com/en/hotels/samana/resort-samana/ is... More

Look at the pictures, it doesn't get much better than this... We spent two weeks of our honeymoon here during february/march 2014. The staff is really great and serviceminded. The hotel is clean and nice, even though it was built a couple of years ago it still stands firm. The activity team lets no one unattended, they continously have activities... More

We just got back last night from our trip to Bahia Principe and honestly had a great time for the most part. AirTransat : We booked our trip with AirTransat and would most likely try to find another company in the future. Packed in both ways like sardines and on board service leaves much to be desired! They failed to... More
