“Best vacation ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Wonderful vacation for our family and friends! Fantastic bungalow accommodations either on ground level or upper level. Excellent housekeeping very clean. Just the right size resort..not too large. Easy to walk or take small trams to main lobby/ buffet/restaurants/ pool/beach. Helpful staff in all areas of the resort who often greeted you by name!! Entertainment group did an outstanding job providing daily activities for all ages! Evening shows were full of talented dancers. Thank you for such creative choreography performed very well by the Animation dance company. Excellent beach party. We always found something yummy at mealtime breakfast, lunch and dinner wether at buffet or restaurants. Hotel provided plenty of bottled water to us during our 10 night stay. The beach is absolutely awesome white sand cool to walk on. We loved relaxing under the palms on the beach with gorgeous ocean waves. Beautiful grounds,well maintained, plenty of palm trees and fresh coconuts cut daily. Superb bar service at both pool, lobby and beach. Very attractive open lobby area, nice store and gift shop. We have only good wonderful beautiful memories of the Bavaro Princess and their accommodating staff for providing us a stress free vacation. A huge thank you to the Animation crew with all of their energy, dance and endless Fun for our family and friends.. Wow. We stayed at this resort March 22 - April 1, 2013. We can't wait to visit again and be amazed by the beautiful people of the Dominican Republic. We plan to return to this resort.

Room Tip: Our family liked being in bungalows not far from beach. We had two one ground level and one upper l...

This was my first time at this resort. I had been to the Princess resort in Mexico, so I was familiar with this hotel chain. The beach was beautiful and you always manged to get a beach chair.The resort is clean and well maintained. Our room was beautiful and spacious. The a la carte restaurants were O.K. and since they no longer took reservations, the popular ones had a 1 to 2 hour wait for a table ie. Japanese restaurant. I was told by other travelers that if you slipped "staff" and airport workers a few dollars, suddenly you had a table at the restaurant or you were in front of the line at the airport. We almost missed our flight home, due to 2 hour wait thru security.

The staff were polite but cold and not very friendly (including our Sunwing representative). We booked 2 excursions, the "safari" and a day trip to the capital city, both were worth it.

Room Tip: We had a room in the middle of the resort. This meant we were halfway to the lobby and to the beach...

I stayed at this resort from April 7-14, 2013. It was a very nice resort. We booked the junior suites, but upgrade to the bungalows as soon as we got there. They are absolutely beautiful and new. The junior suites are beside the lobby and are old and are in need of TLC. The food was amazing. The resort is really big and you can take a trolley to get from the lobby bar to your bungalow, beach and pool. The pool is nice, but really crowded. I like that the pool is right beside the beach. The restaurants and buffet are really good and the hamburgers and fries at the McPrincess on the beach are good. They only serve El Presidente beer and the Bahama Mama's are good, but make sure to ask with rhum. When you ask for a Pina Colada or Bahama Mama you must tell them to add rhum or else they won't because they make it for the kids. Also ask for a Dirty Monkey...very good. The vendors on the beach can be a pain, but I wore my sunglasses and didn't make eye contact...lol. Make sure to put everything in your safe including your advil, mine mysteriously disappeared. I didn't bring gifts for the maid, but left $2 a day and gave to the gardeners, the servants who bring you your drinks at the beach and pool, the bartenders and the waiters and waitresses. We did the Country Express and it was lots of fun. A bit commercial, but still fun to get out and see the city and country. Some of the people are friendly and some are not. I think it has to do with the language barrier. The ecological zoo is really cute and after you breakfast, don't forget to grab a bun to feed the turtles. They got nuts and love it and you can have up to 20 turtles swimming around.

Room Tip: Choose the bungalows. The juniors suite are beside the lobby and far away from everything and are in...

We went there on the 20th march 13 for two weeks. fab, fab, fab would def recommend. we flew with first choice and had upgraded our seats to premier, the 9 hour flight felt like half that. On arrival it was hot and humid and the airport is small with a long queue for the visa process. there was a band playing live music which entertained my daughter (6 years old), and everything was very well organised. On arrival at the hotel we were dealt with straight away, our allocated room was quite a distance from the main pool so we asked if our room could be changed. IDanny on reception dealt with this no problem and we were given room 402. Great location near main pool which is where we spent most of our time. Everywhere was clean, the gardens were beautiful and peacocks wandered the grounds freely. The staff made our holiday, they made my daughter feel so special, always remembering her name. I was dubious about the kids club with it being hotel run but she had a ball which meant we had a ball too. She took part in lots of activites and even in the evening shows. The evening entertainment was good too, including beach parties and was family orientated. The choice of restaurants was nice in a big resort. I thought we wouldnt bother with the trolley bus around the resort but it was nice to be able to jump on and off to get around. I would recommend this hotel without hesitation and hope to go back ourselves.

I visited Bavaro from April 2 - 9th, 2013 with my sister. This has been my fourth time to this resort and my sister's 2nd. The resort is absolutely gorgeous and very easy to get around. The grounds are immaculate and the trolly's are handy. However, if you do need to walk from the beach to the lobby, it's not very far and the paths are well lite. The beach is stunning and very clean. While walking along the beach and seeing other resorts, Bavaro is by far the best beach front on the strip. The food was good and we highly recommend the a la carte, especially the Fish Restaurant. The ceviche was AMAZING!!!

The staff.... because we have been back a few times, we have become friends with the staff. Not only are they very help in assisting you with any requests, they are friendly, cheerful and made the vacation extra special. In particular, a shout out to Carlos Felix from Apple Vacations he is our hermano dominicano... he is amazing and goes out of his way to make sure we are comfortable and our needs are met. Tony Estenor from Apple Vacations also made sure that we were comfortable and made sure that staff at the Fish Restaurant took care of us.

The Entire Animation Crew kept us entertained - Happy Face, Melvin, Robert, Juan Carlos, Michael, Juan, and our special friend Carlitos ! (Sorry if we missed anyone!!!) Juan Carlos has the energy of the energizer bunny! He is cheerful and can dance like a champ. He taught us a few moves! Carlitos is also an amazing dancer and amazingly entertaining. Wendy is one of the chefs in the lobby restaurant. He made us the best banana crepe ever!!! Be sure to see him and try one! Anna Carmona is one of the housekeeping ladies. She is an absolute doll and you are lucky if you have her tending to your room.

These people work hard and they all go out of their way to make sure your vacation runs smoothly. If you do get a chance to visit Bavaro, consider yourself lucky to have these people take care of you during your stay.

All in all, this resort is great for a couples vacation, family vacation or a vacation if you want to go somewhere alone. It's safe and very affordable. We hope to be back soon!!

My friend and I stayed at the resort in the spring of 2012, it was a booking error by our travel agent, but it was an error we are delighted she made. We changed agents and made sure she booked us into this resort in the spring of 2013.
The resort is large, with beautiful grounds and many amenities. The food was excellent, the rooms were tasteful and the housekeeping was top notch. I can't say enough about the staff, extremely friendly, helpful and plenty of fun.
My daughter is going next week, it's a graduation gift that I'm sure she will enjoy and appreciate.
Bravo Bavaro, keep up the great work and see you again.

Punta Cana : BAVARO PRINCESS ALL SUITES
Stay 05 Apr 2013 - 12 Apr 2013

This is an awesome resort for the money, not too big, not too small. It was easy to get around and very convenient. There was always a train there to pick you up and only took a minute or two to get to where you needed to be. The room was large and spacious as well as spotlessly clean, with great air-conditioning. The whole resort itself was spotless as well. The staff were always cleaning something. The food on this resort was wonderful as was the wait staff. We enjoyed the main buffet, the beach buffet, and the a-la-cartes. The entertainment and animation team were fabulous. Loved the live shows and singing. The beach itself was the best in the area. I walked for an hour each way along the beach and was very happy I picked the resort I did. During the day there was always something going on at the beach or the main pool area to keep you entertained. I would highly recommend this resort to each and everyone. There is not one negative other than I wish I had 2 weeks stay instead of 1. This was our 6th time to the Punta Cana area, with a big thank you to Bavaro Princess for a great holiday experience.

The strong points: location, beach, staff, room, clean, food, friendliness, entertainment.
The weak points: there are no weak points.

Room Tip: I prefer the rooms closest to the main lobby so that in the evening you are near the main buffet, th...
