This was my first all-inclusive vacation. I couldn't have had a better experience! The drive from the airport wasn't so bad, though I read prior to my trip it was too far. The scenery on the in-between was very pleasant for me! The resort was very clean. The staff were very helpful and very friendly! I got to know quite... More

DR Airport: Sunquest prepaid arrival fee and delivered (three) blank DR forms for completion on aircraft. Check in: Prompt and efficient. Room upgraded. Hotel: grounds beautifully maintained. No jungle. Beach is very long and wide and has plenty of lounges and shade. Lots of washrooms, serviced continually. One bank of buildings upgraded to two-room suites by combining pairs of rooms....

This was my first trip at an all inclusive resort and I am hooked. The food was great, although the restaurants are not for everyone you are able to pick and choose what you want. everything was clean a tidy. Be aware of the excursions as it might not be what you expect, the jeep safari is not even close... More

The Resort is beautiful, extremely clean, very pleasant staff. Way too far from the airport. Street shops are always closed. Maid service went thru our luggage and had stolen stuff from our room. The entertainment manager (Nelson) should be fired, not Modesto. Nelson is really stuck on himself, entertainment was ok, poorly organized and put together. The animation team are... More

We have been to this resort 15 times over the last 10 years. We have returned because of the great value for our dollar and because of the great staff. This year the resort has upgraded its designation to a "Grand" Bahia by renovating the rooms, offering suites and improving the food offerings. If you are looking for the best... More

a week in paradise, the place is beautiful and the people are friendly! The drink and food packages are very good, everything was perfect, the only weak point is the air conditioning blowing directly on the bed, the beach is very beautiful and landscape is wonderful.I recommend to everyone the Grand Bahia Principe San Juan
