“Fantastic holidays in Bahia Principe Punta Cana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

jan 9-23. second time to the Grand Bahia Punta Cana. Stayed again in Punta Cana side and the same block - close to the beach and dining area .Did not pay for safe this time and have to say have been lucky but have made sure that I had a lock for the suitcase . Lovely view of the resort, lovely sand, clear water. Have to say the seaweed was cleared every morning . The rooms were comfortable, bed linen and towels have been changed every day, housekeeping staff was very friendly. The mini bar restocked every day, ac worked properly. The buffett was very good, catered for all nationalities and never had to wait for the table. Staff all around were very nice, no communication issues, most speak good enough english. Yes, they do appreciate their tips so be generous and tip, the least you can do. Wake up early around 7 and place a towel on beach chairs to reserve. after breakfast is too late, that includes around the pools too.

Room Tip: •"Corner suites are large and sunny"

Stayed Jan 14-21. First time here. Enjoyed our stay. Have stayed in B.P. Coba in Mexico previously. Very similar in layout and amenities. Room was nice. Food was good. Beach was nice. Weather was great. Would return

Room Tip: Buildings 9-15 are central...Resort is big. But trollies move you around fast and easy.

We travelled as a family from January 8th- 17th and we had done some research on this resort and although they say there is a lot of walking we didn't have to do that much, just jump on the train! It is a very large resort but we found our way after a couple of days but when in doubt just hop on one of the trains and the drivers will tell you if they are going by your room block or to the beach etc. We found the staff to be very friendly and always had a smile on their faces. Our room was kept very clean and tidy and I had some birthday decorations as I was celebrating my birthday during our stay. They go out of their way to make it special for you. A big thank-you to the customer service by having us in the best room location possible. This made our whole trip! The only downside is that we aren't used to all the oils they cook in and found ourselves very bloated for half our trip, but the food was good we had no issues finding lots to eat. It would be great to have a breakfast buffet at the beach location though possible suggestion to make it easier for the beach located blocks to grab a quick bite in the morning instead of having to go all the way up to the front buffet. The pool was warm and the ocean even warmer, we mainly stayed around the pool area and soaked up the sun but did enjoy the long walks on the beach mid afternoon. We took a speed boat ride up and down the beach area and out to the sunken ship, I would recommend this, for a little cost we had a blast! There were no vendors on the beach so nothing to be bothered by but a ton of little shops further down about a 20 minute walk or so you could go to.

I would recommend this resort to family, singles, couples, as there is something for everyone!!! We will return for another visit for sure

Room Tip: Block 1is a great location right at the pool and beach, doesn't get better then that one

jan 14-21. second time to the grand bahia punta cana. opted to try the royal golden. 50$ xtra pp, safe was included and a lot closer to the beach, was within 5 min walk. fine sand, clear water. seaweed was cleared by maintenance everyday. rooms were no different than others, comfortable bed, clean, housekeepin was on the ball. enough towels, mini bar restocked, ac workd properly, decent balcony view. buffett was decent, theme nights etc, never waited for a table. shows are not bad, staff all around were very nice, no communication issues, most speak decent english. they do appreciate their tips.

recommendations. pay the xtra 50 for the royal golden. if you dont, at least get a safe 30$?, i felt safe away from the room with my passport, monies and cameras stored. if not make sure you have a lock for your suitcase and lock up everything in there. be generous and tip, the least you can do. bring your own towels, wake up early 630-7ish and go place a towel on beach chairs to reserve. after breakfast is too late, that includes around the pools too.

The Bahia Principe Punta Cana was my first All inclusive experience. The positives are gorgeous grounds well maintained, fabulous weather, accoumadations were fine. Beach was way crowded and busy! Like others stated , there are 6 hotels on the property. plus many surrounding resorts. More often staff were unpleasant, unfriendly and disinterest in helping us. Very Poor guest service desk staff. And I so agree with other female reviewers about the creepy, inappropriate male staff. We were three women traveling together. There were several very uncomfortable sexual comments, touching( on your shoulder, arm, asking for your telphone number and greeting us at out table by trying to hug us. Really!! Totally classless and crude. Not a place for single women. So respectful and demeaning. Not where you want to be on a relaxing vacation. On guard and worried about the resort staff.
It was offen loud, loud music everywhere. Hard to find a quiet spot. Food was maybe a 6 out of 10, buffets with cafeteria like food even at the restaurants , which were a total hassle to get a reservation to. When you did get in these booked restaurant they were 1/3 full, what's that about. .

Room Tip: Stay away from the hug pools with very loud Caribbean pulsating music.

we have been to this resort a quite a few times, always enjoy it and the food is really good. the rooms are starting to get outdated but, they are spotless and neat. the bed was better this time, it was a good mattress and we slept well. we found the al a cartes a bit better this time as they are now doing all the appetizers as a buffet then you order your main meal. like this much better. the entertainment is the same each and every time, ha.ha. so they are getting exceptionally good with repeating it over and over, ha.ha. the drinks are great. very classy resort. the beach is beautiful and they have lots of loungers. we don't use the pools but, they look lovely. we always do the royal golden club. we went january so it was a bit too hot for me at times.
The area offers water attractions, such as racing speedboats, catamaran sailing, party boats, deep sea sport fishing, discovery cruises, floating spas, private yachts, swimming with dolphins, snorkeling cruises, swimming with sharks and stingrays, whale watching, reef exploring and visiting small islands like Catalina and Saona.

Room Tip: royal golden club gets the rooms closest to the beach. the wifi was free in the lobby and also in t...

My suggestion to new travelers to Bahia Principe Punta Cana, DO NOT pay attention to negative reviews!!! I personally came back from there yesterday evening (Jan 20, 2015). I was there with my family (myself, my wife and our son who's 1,5 year old) and we had a very very very great time there!!! Have no complaints whatsoever!!! Everything was beyond our expectations!!! Staff was very friendly and showed very detailed care to everything!!! Food was amazing, drinks were on point, cleanness was excellent!!! We stayed there for 7 nights and we would love to repeat this trip again many times!!!:-) Our son has enjoyed this trip more than anybody else!!! Amazing place to bring the children as well!!! Also try their various programs that they offer. We've tried two of them (Dolphin Explorer and Marinarium) both of these programs were wonderful!!! We also wanted to try Santo Domingo trip program, but we were suggested not to do it with a young child, since it's a long ride and the kid would get exhousted. Otherwise we would definitely do it!!! Long story short, don't hesitate and don't think twice, just do this trip if you have an opportunity to do so!!! Good luck and enjoy!!!
