We stayed in the Premier area on our first visit to this resort(Jan 2006) and wanted to stay there again, but our booking agent only had the Bavaro in their offerings, so at check in we asked if we could change our booking to the Premier. When the clerk, at the Bavaro front desk, heard that we had stayed at the resort before he immediately changed our wrist bands to ones that indicated that we were repeat customers and said, if we would wait until later in the afternoon, they would find us a room in the Premier area. We agreed to wait and had lunch in the buffet.
That evening we found that the Premier buffet was very crowded and the lobby had been set up for Russian vacationers who were in the majority staying in that area. For the rest of our stay we used Bavaro buffet and lounge where the the servers came to know us and gave us royal treatment. In the lounge Ana and her girls made sure we were well looked after. Some of the girls serving us were Udelki, Maira, Yaritza, Brenda, Berkis, Joana, Carmen and Gilda, The staff in the buffet(we did not get all of their names) always ensured we had a nice table and saw to our needs.
Our suite in building 41 was always kept clean and tidy and the maids provided us with different decorations each day. Even Santos, their support man became very friendly and helped the maids to make our stay very enjoyable.
In all we had an excellent vacation so we have decided to return with our family. We have booked four suites and will be arriving with the West Jet flight out of Toronto on the 28th of April 2013. Again our agent does not offer Premier area so it would be great if could get four suites together on the second or third floor of a building near 41.
We are looking forward to seeing all our friends at Gran Bahia Principe.
