Well where do I start. From the minute we stepped off the coach and set foot on this wonderful resort we were welcomed by a dance from the fantastic animation team that made the start of our holiday very memerable. We were then checked in with speed and accuracy then taken to our room. I was overwhelmed when we walked... More

I didn't rate it average because I felt in many ways this hotel was below average most of the time. The food was never GREAT, yes there were many options at the buffet but nothing done really well, I wish they had just done fewer things at higher quality. I was very disappointed the food prep they clearly would cook... More

My boyfriend and I went for my birthday and for the last 7 days we were in paradise! This was our first time traveling to a country on our own, especially a country where English is not the first language, but it was great! When we first arrived and throughout the whole week we gave off the impression that we... More

We came back 5 days ago. The staff are very friendly and work very hard to please us. We did have some room issues, which were eventually resolved. The entertainment at the pool side and on stage was excellent and the entertainment staff work very hard to please all age groups. However, the head manager at the front desk was... More

Bahia principe San Juan is an excellent place to go if you want to relax and enjoy yourself. We needed a peaceful vacation the first week, and Bahia didn't disappoint us on this. Situated in the middle of the countryside, we felt that staying more than one week however would become a bit dull. We are happy with our stay.... More

We were here frim the 16th to the 23rd and really loved everything, not a complaint. Flew into Puerto Plata, one hour drive through tiny villages went quicky. Four beautiful large pools from quiet and serene to action packed. The meals were the best, the staff were amazing..and the entire holiday was just perfect. Our room was pretty basic, we... More

We have been to many Bahia Principe resorts in the past including Don Pablo resorts and non Don Pablo resorts. The price was right so we decided to try the San Juan property as we had never been to this part of the Dominican Republic and knew the resort had just been refurbished. We flew into Samana El Catey airport... More

Sandfleas are a problem that the touroperator claims the hotel works hard to controll and so it may be but who wants to get bitten and when I saw the... More
