“Totally Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

This is a must to travel to destination. I could go on here all day but i wont. Huge property, great food and entertainment, the beach is totally amazing with kilometers of walking. This is a property that if you are ever looking for a two week stay then i would highly recommend it.

We had a wonderful time at your resort and would like to thank Manvel & Kenia, who did a great job helping us. The food & drink were outstanding and the customer service from the staff was very good.
Kenia at the front desk did great.
So did Manvel, who helped with transportation.

This resort was our third place that we stayed in Bavaro and it was the best one so far. Especially the room was great. The only problem we had was we couldn' t get our room on time. We had to wait one and a half our to get in but they gave us one more our to check-out. No need to write much. It was worth to be there!

This was my first time going to DR. I picked the right resort to stay inn. From the time we arrived people were very friendly and kind. Jose did our check inn. He did a great job making sure that our stay there was a great experience. He went out of his way to make us feel welcome and relax. The gardens are beautiful and the rooms very clean. There is a great variety of restaurants to visit and the main buffet has a good variety of food. All the food we ate was delicious. There are several pools and the beach is excellent with plenty of room for everyone. Looking forward to visit this place again.

We arrived at the resort on November 17,2012. I had upgraded to the Hacienda Club, which was worth the extra money. Easy check in in a separate area & the room was very close to the pool & beach. The grounds were beautiful & most employees were friendly. Had some issues with our first room, but immediately was moved to another location. Needs more entertainment throughout the day & the food was the same everyday and was not good at all. The a la carte restaurants did have better food for dinner.

My family and I travel to many resorts internationally, however without a doubt “The Grand Bahia Principe Bavaro” stands in the top ranking resorts.
From the warm check in to room service, the maids, the staff all over & the entertainment team are all great and always have a friendly & warm smile. My family and I truly enjoy the lush huge resort where you can enjoy meals at different exquisite restaurants or try the enormous buffets where the food is exceptional with a huge variety to fit everyone’s taste. The beach is beautiful and goes on forever with white powdery sand and crystal blue waters.
The pools are great and you have a big choice of pools with all types of activities! The nightly shows are superb and very entertaining. After the main show you can walk to The Placita where you can enjoy an open air show as well – Lot’s of fun!
We highly recommend this resort if you truly want to enjoy a relaxing, fun and an unforgettable vacation.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the pool areas if you prefer peace & quiet!

Visited the resort from Nov 11-18 2012, we brought down 50 of our closest family and friends for our wedding. Our wedding day and the trip in general turned out better than we could have ever imagined. Having already stayed at the resort in 2011, we knew it was amazing for young couples - so much to see and do, loads of entertainment options, etc. This time we had family with us, including young children, and we were more than pleased!

Our wedding day was amazing, and only took a 20 minute meeting with our coordinator 2 days prior to plan! Loved that part! Special thanks to Minel, Floranyely and the rest of the wedding department for putting together a day we will always remember. The VIP wristbands were a nice bonus, though we didn't take full advantage.
Arrifice photographer was great and took amazing pictures, it was hard to pick only 20. Angela in the Arrifice studio was helpful and did not pressure us to buy more than we wanted which was appreciated.

Our group pretty much took over the pool in the middle of the resort on the first day and thanks to bartender kelvin and his Super Kelvins, we never left! Beach was clean and we found it was easier to get chairs this year compared to our 2011 visit.

Only issue was the shower head in our room not working but staff were there to fix it within 1 day.

Would definitely recommend this resort to others, especially those looking for somewhere to do a destination wedding. No complaints at all about our wedding, all 50 of our guests had a great time! Easy to plan and not at all expensive. We paid extra to have a private reception by the beach and it was perfection.

Looking forward to our next visit hopefully in the near future!
