We went on our Honeymoon in June. The trip exceeded our expectations. We had read reviews that the food wasn't that good, but it was amazing! We actually cancelled our reservations one evening at one of the restaurants just to go back to the buffet. Food from everywhere so obviously there were things I had no interest in, but in... More

We just got back from Bahia Principe Bavaro a few days ago (July 14-21) and travelled with a group of 9 including 3 children and 2 seniors. This is the third resort I’ve stayed at and ranks as one of the best. Check-in/Check-out: took forever (45 minutes) because the lady at the counter tried in vain to get all three... More

This is undoubtedly a beautiful resort. It is very large with about 5-6 hotels within the complex but they do blend well together. For example the Punta Cana and Bavaro receptions are a mirror image of each other joined at the theatre where nightly shows take place. I have seen better shows but for a bit of light entertainment after... More
