We just returned from a one week stay at this precious place. We´d rather keep it short but it was fantastic: The reception: though their knowledge of english is pretty limited they always try to help you out. The rooms: very big, kleen and fresh. Check daily if you have towels because the cleaning lady seems to forget it all...

My husband and I (38/41) returned on Nov 6th. It was our second visit to this resort this year (Feb 05). The second time was as good as the first! The first time we stayed on the Punta Cana Side and this time the Bavaro Side. Both are equal - no difference - nothing to compare. The difference is one...

Just returned on Sunday from the Gran Bahia Principe Punta Cana and had a super vacation. As part of our "Club Golden" package, we received our room keys and associated documentation on the bus ride from the airport to the resort. As result, once we arrived at the hotel, we did not have to check in ... we simply had...

My sister and I (both in our mid-forties) spent a week with our 3 teenage children at the Bahia Principe Punta Cana from October 30th to November 6th. Prior to our arrival, we had requested (by phone) building #14, 3rd floor, connecting rooms, and got exactly what we wanted. Check-in process was very efficient and courteous, but the rooms were...

If we hadn't received such a cheap last minute deal, $764 Can pp total, the following may have been written with a more negative slant. This resort depends heavily on European charters and North American guests will experience the warts that come with them. If you're a non-smoking, english-only speaking couple looking for a "Carribean" 5 star resort, offering a...

I'll be brief Rooms - Beautiful, best bed I've ever slept in at an all-inclusive. Air condition - excellent - no smell, no bugs. Buffet - Very Good, nothing exceptional. Sometimes empty dishes were not refilled as soon as the should be. Beware they use a lot of oil! Service was good - some waiters were better than others -...

Just returned from the Bahia and had a mixed experience. The resort itself is very spread out, but the shuttle that runs frequently makes this very easy to deal with. The Beach is very nice and very long, runs both ways for many miles. The beach does however have seaweed that washes up along the shores and patches of it...

Fantastic resort. Definitely 5 star in attractiveness and extra. We had the MOST relaxing time. I am so shocked to read about not getting service--ours was outstanding. We never waited once for a drink. We stayed on the Bavaro side of the hotel and one suggestion is to get the Hacienda club package which has its own private lagoon-like pool...

We stayed at the Gran Bahia Principe Bavaro from Oct 29 to Nov 5. This was our first visit to an all-inclusive resort. We had a car and spent some time travelling outside of the resort, so we were able to see a tiny bit of the DR as well. By the way, I do not recommend that you rent...

My husband and I just returned from the Bahia Principe yesterday. Neither of us are hard to please, nor do we complain about much but we were very unhappy with our vacation. We had been booked for a return trip to the Mayan Riviera but had to switch our plans at the last minute due to the hurricane damage. Although...
