After choosing the hotel with my partner we were in two minds at the beginning because of the three hour coach ride to the complex considering we were on a flight from the uk for around 9hrs! But what can I say, the hotel and the area was worth every second of the wait, the hotel was impeccable in every... More

Just returned after a 2 weeks staying at the GBP with my wife. Had a fantastic time, food was very good, staff were fantastic, friendly and helpful. We were there mainly for the whale watching. We had fantastic views from our room (436) of the bay and the town. Our only gripe is the high charge for the safe, $4... More

We stayed in a Villa just outside of main entrance was beautiful accommodation. 53 steps to get to Villa no cart access, we were on top of the hill. Our bags were brought up and down when we left. Guards were posted all night and we saw many in pairs. It... More

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
