We are on day 7 of our 14 day vacation. From the check in to the restaurants, bars, housekeeping the service has been excellent. We are treated like their family without a doubt. Please pass this on to all of your staff. The wifi works, the language barrier is minimal. If you need something just ask. We came to relax , be pampered and that is what we have experienced . Room 4804 is close to everything.

During our 2 week stay WiFi almost didn’t work normally a single day (!), service was very weak (most often people just ignore you, same for reception), food and drinks average (red and white wine simply awful), hotel overcrowded with people (and seems like they can’t manage the capacity), witnessed a lot of staff very sick & working (seen our maid coughing harshly in the corridor) despite all according measures, when leaving we got sick as well (positive COVID test upon arrival) along with many other tourists here. Local “fitness-club” is almost impossible to enter as it’s almost always full. “A la carte” restaurants are tricky to enter either if you’re not platinum — long queues (but most of them are not even worth visiting). The special train that should take you to the beach (territory is enormously big) most often doesn’t ride except for mid-day hours. Had broken door in the bathroom which despite numerous request we didn’t get repaired by end of vacation. During check-in reception trying to take money from you to allocate decent suit. Barmen easily offering most likely stolen from hotel rum for purchase. We also had another incident, wrote and handed over letter to General Manager and didn’t get any response as we were there. Positive points: hotel territory, clean beach, modern rooms. Do not recommend.

We had stayed here in the past and thought as our first trip after 2 years maybe going somewhere familiar would be good. We choose Preferred Club for the upgraded restaurants, room and services. Check in wasn't the most friendly. The guy was all business not friendly at all but we muddled through and got to our room. The room was very nice and right on the beach. nice large balcony and jetted tub. Bed was comfortable and had nice linens. Modern bathroom which was nice and had great towels and toiletries. The only negative was that the people upstairs felt they had to drag the chairs from one end of the room to the other...top floor next time.. We couldn't get a dinner reservations the first night and ended up going to the French restaurant. Remember to download the hotel app or Q code reader...there are no paper menus at any of the restaurants. Food was good a bit salty but nicely presented. We did go to PC restaurant (Coral)every morning and lunch to eat. The buffet was a zoo!! so many kids and people...with covid we really didn't feels safe. The last day we were there the restriction were eased and the buffets were back to self serve and the food selection improved. We found the music in all the restaurants very loud and it was hard to talk without shouting...Shout out to Joseph (the Waiter at Coral) We choose to sit in his area every time and he was ready with our preferred beverage each time. He may have been new but he was a great server. We order room service a few times and it was good to have a micro wave in the room to warm it up. Bar fridge was replenished each day. We tried the main pool the first day but ended paying the $15 a day to reserve a Bali bed at Ceilo, adult pool. There were kids that drifted into the pool one morning and they were asked to leave. It's Adult Only!! Bar service was at the bar only no delivery to your chair. But they were fast. you need to mask up for service at all bars. They use 10 ounce reusable glassed but bring a straw...they absolutely do not have any. the bartender Julia knows her stuff. There weren't any live shows on at the time we were there just video's. The lobby has some nice bars but the cigarette smell was over powering. There's lots of shopping and lots of walking between all the resorts. Just be careful, the walkway lighting is very dim. They have a trolley that run from the lobby to each building. The beach was nice not a lot of sea grass but the bottom is very uneven and lots of waves. We enjoyed our time here. there are so many different options for people. There's always the right room..

This resort don’t cater to black visitors. If you’re black you have to serve yourself. In addition, the servers completely ignoring my groups and some other blacks. Overall, the stay was terrible and won’t come back to DR.

Please accept our apologies for any possible inconvenience you might have experienced staying here with us.

It is also important to mention that our property has never tolerated any inappropriate behavior of any our staff and we would never hesitate to take harsh measures against those who support racism. Also it is important to report any inconvenience when the guest is still in house in order we can act immediately. As you may know, we always want our guests to have an excellent time while staying within us, and we are sorry because we could not please you in a 100%. We would love to have another opportunity to be your host when you find yourself returning to Dominican Republic as we are sure we can do it much better in the future. Happy New Year, J. De La Vieja General Manager Grand Bavaro Princess.

Let me start out by saying I tested negative at this resort and tested 36 hours later and I have the Corona virus. This hotel does the bare minimum at keeping everything sanitized. The trolleys weren’t cleaned one time my entire stay or wiped down. I retested after someone in my party received a positive result at the resort. No food was allowed at all to the room at all like we didn’t pay for all inclusive. This is a 3 star hotel not a 5 star hotel Clubs and casinos were not at resort it was a 5-10 min drive and longer walk. The shuttle driver tried offering us to buy illegal substances so we did not go due to feeling unsafe. Bad check in and was not able to be in same building as friends who went. They all paid the staff under the table to get in the same building then told me it was full. The internet was very spotty throughout the resort. Was unable to communicate or use phone majority of the trip. Was hard to do E-ticket to get back in the US and to load Covid results that were emailed. There was no bilingual staff at the resort, was hard to communicate due to this. AC in room worked when it wanted to. All of my belongings got stuck in the safe and I was unable to get in my safe and happened more than once before I decided to risk everything and hide my stuff in the suitcase. Did not listen to cleaning instructions after I was told multiple times there were no more “do not disturb signs” I did not want my room cleaned or people in my room at all and ended up having my room cleaned daily after telling staff no more cleaning at all for my stay and the staff threw out my prescription medication. Tv did not work in room at all during the stay. Smells like mold (probably due to poor AC) Moist beds even after sheets changed. Feces stained couch/pull out bed. Food was nasty everywhere. Buffet was nasty. - steak house most normal and had to pay $40 for tomahawk steak and there was a hair found in the food Went to buy sunscreen in the gift shop and when I asked about the price the employee ran my card anyway and wouldn’t give me a refund and I did not take the product. Tried offering even exchange and they did not allow. Having to dispute charge with my bank and get a whole new card # because of this. The employees names were Katiusca and Karina. They even got smart with me when leaving the gift shop. Bad customer service and ignorant employees I also had to slam my bedroom door shut each time I was leaving because the door was broken. If you let it close naturally it would still be able to push open without any room key and made a sound as if it was closed. (picture proof and room 0401) left the door to my room open twice by mistake when I left the first day before getting in the habit to slam it shut and annoy my neighbors. Get there right at 6 for restaurants to eat, if not will wait all night or not get seated at all to eat. Nothing to do at night entertainment team does not entertain and was non existent. They had one game of horseshoes the whole week I was there. I paid for a massage that requires me to go back to another massage therapist in the US because my neck has been hurting since. Harassed by not employees constantly on the beach to buy items/braid hair/ buy illegal substances. Cleaning employees waking us up at 7am. The best part of my vacation was Don Juan, Daniel, and Joan in the pool bar (they should be called the entertainment team) Also Angeline that schedules the massages was AMAZING! You need more staff like these 4 individuals.

Dear Mirandatuba2. Thank you for your feedback. We are glad that you choose our resort as your holiday destination but we deeply regret that your stay was not exactly as you were expecting because our main goal will be always try to please all our visitors by offering a good service. First of all, it is important to mention that we are not a hospital but a hotel and under no circumstances we forced our guests to get tested, We understand that it is a requirement to return to your country but it is you who decides whether to take the test or not. Then we have a medical center inside our property in order to bring comfort and security to our visitors as we are not responsible for any incident that may occur outside but you are free to decide where to get tested. Unless you do not rest, you may notice that every day when many of our customers are sleeping, we do deep cleaning not only on our trolleys but all areas where clients and staff have access and are in daily contact and not necessarily because you did not see the cleaning, it means that it is not done. In relation to the casino and as you have said, this company is not within our hotel because it is a company that has nothing to do with ours and we regret the inconvenience you had with the driver. However, logic says that when something is not right or someone feels unsafe at any particular place, the most prudent thing is to report it immediately in order to take action. If you had provided us this information on time, we would have denied access to this guy to our hotel as we do not support criminal actions, much less if it involves any of our guests or employees. As you may know, we always want our guests to have an excellent time and we are sorry because we could not please you in a 100%. One more time we do apologize for the entire inconveniences holiday you faced. Every point expressed will be considered as an area of improvement and corrective measures are already in action to fix these issues. We hope to have another opportunity to be your host if you return to Dominican Republic as we are sure that we can do it better in the future. Happy New Year, J. De La Vieja General Manager Grand Bavaro Princess.
