We went to Bahia Principe the week of november 25th until December 1st, the hotel is really comfortable and the staff very friendly. Besides the hotel restaurants there are different themed a la carte restaurants and you get to make a reservation for 3 or 4 of them you have to hurry up because some run out of space really quick (could not get to japanesse restaurant) , we went to BBQ (grill), Santa Fe (Mexican) and Il Capricio (Italian), all of them are really good but Santa Fe was superb, food was delicious I had some extra food instead of desert just to keep trying the food on the buffet. Look for Pedro on the Premier main lobby he was really helpful with the reservations for the restaurants and managed everything well since we were on a big group and it was not easy to find space for all of us. Also the other restaurants had an awesome variety of food, breakfast and lunch were incredible with lots of options and some surprises, one night they had a small table with sushi which was delicious, the staff was really friendly with the kids and always smiled to everyone. There was space for everyone with no big lines to get to the buffet, everything went smooth specially on Las Dalias which was the closest to our rooms.
The pool is big and you get the chance to visit the bigger pool by the beach using the small car service on the front lobby, the staff in the pool is really nice specially poolside barman Leonel which was really nice with our kids that were going all the time for fruit punch. There are also small daily contest of Ping Pong and volley ball, and the winners receive small gifts at the tropicana theater before the main show.
There are several shows at the tropicana theater and pueblo principe and if you have small kids they can be part of the show doing small roles like lion cubs in Lion King or Snow White dwarfs in the princes show, all shows were good but one not to miss is Michal Jackson which is a show presented in the Tropicana Theater on Tuesdays get there early because it is really crowded, the show performed extremely well by a group of dancers, the guy who represents Michael Jackson is amazing, this one is a must see.
The lobby has free WiFi internet nice speed and if you don't have a laptop there are two computers for a quick email check.
Pueblo Principe has a nice variety of stores, a casino, sports bar and the theater for the night shows, it is really close to the Premier.
Pros: Comfortable rooms, friendly staff, great buffet service, great a la carte restaurants, nice pools and beach.
Cons: My bedroom was cleaned by 4 or 5 in the afternoon, sometimes this was uncomfortable because we came from the beach tired and they were beginning to clean the room, the bathroom shower gets all the floor wet because there is a small glass to keep the water and it is not enough.
Really good hotel I'll go there again anytime, congrats to the staff.
My room was 40112 and it was cleaned last, my friends room was 43112 and it was cleaned almost first...
