The GBPC has the potential to be a MUCH better than present but because of its size and several overlooked details, it's more of a 3 star. Having stayed at 8 all inclusive resorts in Mexico and the Dominican over the past 9 years, I've seen the good, the bad and the ugly. Heres my take on the Grand Bahia:...

Having stayed at Sandals Resorts, our expectations for the Grand Bahia Principe were not set very high. What Grand Bahia lacks in quality of room furnishings it more than makes up in the friendliness of staff. The grounds, pools, beaches, restaurants and rooms were immaculate. Although we tipped heavily, others who didn't were treated with the same gracious smile and...
