What a wonderful place. People were so nice with us and always smiling. Nothing had to say about the room it was always clean. So far the Buffet was the best for me so far. The restaurants à la carte were also very good. In the morning we were walking on the beach from the hôtel to downtown it was... More

Exactly the same place with the same people! I have been reading the reviews and opinions of some of the other vacationers and I find it difficult to believe we experienced the... More

There was a group of 9 of us from Jan 31-Feb 7......and no one has a bad thing to say about this place. Staff is all super friendly, rooms were clean, beach was amazing (we never had a problem getting chairs) food was good, drinks were always tasty....great place to vacation!! We all hope to go back some day:)

We returned from the GBP el Portillo yesterday after a fantastic week with our adult children and their spouses/ significant others. We have stayed at other Bahia resorts and chose this location due to budgets, being comfortable with Bahia's, and the fact that everyone coming from other parts of Canada would all meet in Toronto and go together. I will... More

We travelled as a family of seven from January 30 to February 6th. Below are some concerns by topic. The highlights of the place were how beautiful the grounds are (the landscapers worked very hard) and the beautiful beach that stretched for a long distance in either direction (although only a fraction was part of the hotel). ROOMS Upon arrival... More

This is the second time that we have been guests at this hotel. We first visited in 2013 and decided to try three weeks at Christmas this year as we were so impressed on our first visit. The hotel has made great improvements on the buildings and facilities since our last visit but I felt that the standard of food... More

We stayed at Bahia Príncipe el Portillo the week of January 17, 2016. The resort was filled to capacity, that they were offering guests to go to the Luxury Bahia. If you weren't on the beach before 8 AM it would be difficult to find a palapa, as they are nabbed quite early in the morning. But loungers were available... More

It is my first time been in Dominican Republic and Grand Bahia Resort. We were travelling with a group of 20 people and we all with the "golden bracelet". The room was great and clean. We had some minor "water leaking problem" from shower leaks into the room, but nothing major, just had to use the shower carefully. The staffs... More

We are just back from a vacation at Grand Bahia Príncipe El Portillo, January 28 to February 4, 2016. The resort is absolutely beautiful, the beach, and numerous sitting areas are very nice. The hotel was at capacity and we never experienced problems getting loungers on the beach, seating at the restaurants, etc... The food is very good, the a... More

We travelled to Grand Bahia Principle El Portillo in January 2016. First of all after a long flight, arriving at the airport it was straight forward and we were sent to our transfer bus, which took 3.5hrs (not the 2 hrs the rep told us at the start of the journey). On arrival it was late (8pm) and therefore no... More
