“decent resort but a few bewares”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

resort is a bit tired and needs some updating but otherwise comfortable with good food and outstanding beach. resort is somewhat quiet so good for plain relaxation. now for the BEWARE of the company that rents the phones etc. I believe it is called Gobecon...it is a con or at the very least not worth it at all. I should have read reviews prior to my trip. I too was ripped off for my cash deposit which was insisted upon by this company. Not only was i ripped off for my deposit but the service was spotty, slow and at times non existent. Lesson learned. next time I purchase a plan for my phone before leaving home.
weather was amazing and for the most part the staff at this resort is accomodating and friendly.

Attended my niece's wedding in October 2010 and spent 7 great days there. The food was excellent and the beach was truly amazing. Be prepared to walk a bit if shuttle is not available to go to the beach especially if you're staying near the main building. Try not to leave valuables out in plain view as they might go missing and staff is not willing to help as it may be one of their own. Overall I would return to this resort don't mind the funny smell going through the pathway to the beach. Rooms can do with a bit of upgrade especially the toilet and shower.

Room Tip: Choose one closer to the beach as most of the activities takes place there.

Hotel is very big . Don't bother to go if you can't get the Platinum club. It made all the difference for us. We found the room was very nice and the maid service was excellent. We were halfway between the Platinum Club lounge and the beach. It was a very good location. Restaurants were very good. I was not pleased with the Lacy's and I felt it was extremely overrated. Don't waste an evening on it. Buffet was good but not special.
Casino was a good size and clean. Watch out for the locals!
Beach was beautiful and clean. We had a private area in the Platinum section.
One thing about this hotel that really irked me that they were very stingy with their premium liquor. If you ordered it , they made you sign a chit for it. Once on the beach bar I asked for Canadian Club and the bartender said there was none , although I could see it. Most of the staff were very good, but there is always the odd one or two. We were told by Sunwing that this hotel was 5 star, no way. Maybe 4 star tops. We won't be back as there are way better hotels in Punta Cana.

Room Tip: Remember to go Platinum Club o r you will be disappointed.

We are a gay couple that needed a break and didn't want to go somewhere where we would feel guilty if we weren't doing things all day and partying all night. We decided on the Dominican to avoid being tempted by a crazy night life like PV. Our agent recommended upgrading to the Platinum package which is the ONLY way to go. The accommodations were lovely, clean and quiet. The beach was beautiful white sand with a cool gentle breeze all day and only a short distance from the room. The food was good (not great) and the drinks were premium and plentiful. We met lovely people and had some laughs. At night after dinner the main lounge always had some fun show going on and when that ended there was the Casino (and I won !!)
So I was hesitant about the Dominican but it was beautiful and unlike PV you could actually enjoy the sun and surf!!!

Room Tip: At first we wanted to be on an upper floor with a view but stayed on the ground floor near the beach...

My boyfriend and I just returned from a week at the Bavaro Princess All Suites Resort. We arrived at 1030 am and were a bit disappointed when we were informed that our room would not be ready until 230pm. When we did get to our room, we were very pleased. We booked a suite and it was very clean and in a great location. The minibar is stocked daily with 2 coke, 2 sprite, water and 2 beer. We also received a complimentary bottle of rum prior to check-in. We were glad we did not book platinum.
On our second day, we were approached by resort staff asking us to attend an ``information session`` that would last approximately an hour. We agreed, as we were promised free t-shirts and a bottle of mamajuana (their signature drink). What we didn`t realize, was that it was actually a session hosted by Royal Hotels, and the purpose was to get us to sign up for a program that was based on points, and ultimately, to book our next vacation that day! We did receive some minor negative feedback when we informed them we were not interested. If approached to attend this session, tell them upfront you are not interested. The rest of the vacation was flawless. The buffet has a large variety of food, and there is something for everyone. We tried 3 al la cartes....Bella Pasta (which was my personal favourite), El Gaucho (steak house - delicious) and Pescador (seafood restaurant which was also delicious). We also ate at McPrincess several times and the burgers and fries are great! The staff are incredible. They are very friendly and the service we received was second to none. The resort is large; however, the tram makes it very easy to travel around. Beach is gorgeous; however, they could use a few more sunshades. The entertainment could be a bit better, but nothing to complain about. Overall, the resort is beautiful and very well maintained. I would definitely recommend this resort and will travel there again!
