The scenery is beautiful on the bus ride to the Gran Bahia. We met the rep (Guy) on this ride and saw him every day at the resort helping every guest he could. Treated like his family and he made sure we were enjoying ourselves. Never had this type of service from any other rep and sometimes you had to phone to get one at some other ones we had stayed at. As for the resort we have stayed 9 times at this chain in Punta Cana and Mayan Riviera with the same class of service on a smaller scale. Try to get a junior suite as the standard room was not anything special. It was our honeymoon and not much was done for us except tshirts and a bottle of rum. Loved the buffet and was not overwhelmed by the a la cartes as service was very slow in the Italian one and we walked out without even having dessert when everyone after us was being served. Otherwise the experience was up to par with the chain and the beach was amazing. Thank you Air Canada vacations for the best part of the trip which was your rep - Guy. He was absolutely amazing.
