Stayed at the Gran Bahia Principe Bavaro from March 30-April 6th. We travelled with our two teenage sons. We had a great vacation. The grounds are stunning you see the workers hard at work maintaining the grounds. The resort is huge as it is one of 5, but the trolley system is great if you need it. otherwise the leisurely walks through the grounds are stunning. Staff where very friendly and helpful (if needed). I was however disappointed at check in as we where put in the principe section furthest from the beach, they would not honor moving us closer to the beach, even though we where a repeat customer with the gran Bahia chain, we travelled to Mexico (gran Bahia Tulum in Dec 2011). However they did give us adjoining rooms which was great.
Food is awesome (I am a fussy eater but always found something to eat). I used the microwave to heat my food up as I do like it hot.
Beach is kept very clean they work hard at removing the seaweed. You do however have to get up early to reserve seating especially if you want an area with shade.
Pools are fun the one by the beach is the busiest. If you want something a little quieter go to the others.
Entertainment was great. Michael Jackson and the Circus show a must see. Poolside entertainment was somewhat repetitive, but still fun.
Overall we had a great time spending time as a family. I would recommend this resort to others just remember it is vast.
