We were at the Grand Bahia Príncipe San Juan, it was an amazing vacation the property, service and the food was amazing. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the landscape thru out the property was unbelievable. The only thing was that the beach had dark so the water dark not very appealing and there was a problem with sand... More

From the moment we arrived by plane, we were greeted and sent on our way within minutes. Although the trip to the resort was over an hour, we were assigned our rooms and provided with keys during the bus ride. This meant no lineups on arrival. Lunch was waiting for us and our rooms were ready immediately after as promised.... More

It was a beautiful hotel but we really booked a bad week. We went at the same time that Haiti was his with a missive earthquake (around 4-5 years ago) It was surreal to see the workers worry about the loved ones, I wish there was more we could have did to help. Before this happened (mid trip) we made... More

Went with a friend from Jan 28th to Feb 4th. We had a great time! The room was fine, nothing special there. We got there late so went directly to bed. The next day we noticed that the fridge wasn't working. We told someone at the front desk and that was promptly fixed. We also asked for more water bottles... More

For the price paid this resort cannot be beat ! First of all it was very clean, food was decent the gourmet restaurant was outstanding. The beach was nice - one end of the beach is a bit nicer than the other. Sometimes it was difficult to find chairs had to play the towel game but that is the fault... More

I don't know where to begin.. I don't know how anyone can moan about this hotel. I suppose everyone has their ups and downs but me and my boyfriend thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! When we got to the airport the man of our transfer took our cases to the coach and gave us a bottle of water, on arrival at the... More

Overall solid 4 stars. Nothing over the top, but nothing bad. Very clean. Towels and maid service was consistent. Drinks were sugary, non blended drinks all from sushi machines. Entertainment was more cookie cutter, music was more authentic in town at Rio San Juan. But entertainment was okay though. I would go back for the right price.

Stayed at this property from January 14th to 21st. The property is well taken care of. It is always being cleaned and manicured. You couldn't beat the view from our room. The resort had a good layout. There was always an abundance of food whether it be for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Our favorite place to go for lunch ended... More

The bus ride in was a bit of a drive(1hour) but if you sit back and relax you will enjoy it. You see a lot in that drive. Could be a bit scared if you have never been before as you go through some very poor neighbour hoods and might wonder about where you are going. You pull up to... More
