Just spent a lovely 2 weeks at this 'hotel', room was large, well furnished, air conditioned ( a must in Dom Rep) & the bed was the biggest i have ever seen! Its described as a hotel but really its a group of villas which is better for privacy, grounds are immaculate at all times. There's lots of swimming pools to choose from the ones near the beach get very busy & noisy but are well catered for with bars a snack restaurant, toilets etc. Fortunately there's several bus trains (free) running up & down the complex as its a bit of a hike if you happen to be at the other end of the resort . The beach is beautiful with shoreline palm trees, soft almost white sand we took a stroll up & down the beach past other hotels & the Bahia Principe defo has the best stretch. Evening entertainment was always good and..entertaining! Two shows are a must see The Michael Jackson show & the Circus of Dreams both stunning in different ways. Other shows had lots of audience participation which was always funny.
On a slightly sour note the food in the buffet restaurant can only be described as ok, there was a lot of choice but some exotic looking/sounding dishes turned out to be quite bland but you can't please all the people all the time.
Would i go back..yes but would like to try Cuba first.
