“Beautiful resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Myself and my husband stayed here for 12 nights on the 25th April . We found the resort very stunning , beautiful beach , lovely rooms ( bungalow Suite ) food in buffet was ok not great but you won't go hungry, the restaurants were much better the steak house being our favourite followed by the pasta.

Be aware of the time share men at the lobby buffet restaurant entrance ! Tell them bluntly that you are not interested and they will get the message and leave you alone.
If you also like to walk along the beach as we do please be aware if you come onto the beach and walk right you come to some shops located on the beach about a mile down, before you reach them turn and go back as these shop owners are vile and hassle you beyond belief to look in their shops even thou we told them we have no money on us they said they would come to our hotel later to collect the money ! Never the less we told them no we was not interested and continued to walk past but then got more hassle walking back past them to get to our hotel again ! They really did annoy me. We preferred to walk left of the resort personally.

Also make sure you take lots of sun factor, we did but we needed a factor 50 and got charged $40 for a little bottle that would cost £6 back home.

A tip if you are a big drinker try and get a Bubba keg as this will stop you having to leave the beach to keep getting drinks as they hold a lot of fluid and keeps it cold upto 12 hours, we did not have one but see a lot of people with these, my husband would have loved one as the hotel use little plastic cups so he was forever going to get a cold beer.

We did have trouble with our mini bar and out of the 12 nights we had to ring them 10 nights to refill it, slightly annoying but never the less we still loved our stay here.

We are not pool people but the pool looked nice with plenty of beds. If you do want a bed under an umbrella on the beach I'm afraid you do have to be up about 6.30 to claim one or you'll be out in the sun all day and get very burnt.

If you have booked to go here I'm sure you won't be disappointed and I am very jealous of you : )

We will be back !!!!

Room Tip: We had room 242 and felt it was perfect, close to the lobby beach and pool.

Wow, if you are looking for your dream vacation, this resort is the place to be and to realize your dream vacation! Amazing.... the rooms are beautiful, very clean, food was delicious, staff was amazing, good shows everynight and disco after the shows until midnight at the lobby. This resort is really well kept, lots of different birds (peacocks, swans, pink flamingos, etc). Of course, Punta Cana's beach are soooo beautiful, white sand, beautiful clear blue water... a color that is undescribable! Also good animation during the day. Aerobics in the morning on the beach and afternoon arround 3 o'clock at the pool. I only have one word to say AMAZING! Thanks to Bavaro Princess staff, my holiday was amazing ... even if we did had some clouds the last days of our trip, the atmosphere on the resort was so amazing that we were not even bothered by those clouds.
Do not hesitate to book to Bavaro Princess, it will be an amazing vacation!

Room Tip: Lower floors rooms have more cool air conditioning. We were in the "suites"/condos... nea...

resort is a bit tired and needs some updating but otherwise comfortable with good food and outstanding beach. resort is somewhat quiet so good for plain relaxation. now for the BEWARE of the company that rents the phones etc. I believe it is called Gobecon...it is a con or at the very least not worth it at all. I should have read reviews prior to my trip. I too was ripped off for my cash deposit which was insisted upon by this company. Not only was i ripped off for my deposit but the service was spotty, slow and at times non existent. Lesson learned. next time I purchase a plan for my phone before leaving home.
weather was amazing and for the most part the staff at this resort is accomodating and friendly.

Attended my niece's wedding in October 2010 and spent 7 great days there. The food was excellent and the beach was truly amazing. Be prepared to walk a bit if shuttle is not available to go to the beach especially if you're staying near the main building. Try not to leave valuables out in plain view as they might go missing and staff is not willing to help as it may be one of their own. Overall I would return to this resort don't mind the funny smell going through the pathway to the beach. Rooms can do with a bit of upgrade especially the toilet and shower.

Room Tip: Choose one closer to the beach as most of the activities takes place there.

Hotel is very big . Don't bother to go if you can't get the Platinum club. It made all the difference for us. We found the room was very nice and the maid service was excellent. We were halfway between the Platinum Club lounge and the beach. It was a very good location. Restaurants were very good. I was not pleased with the Lacy's and I felt it was extremely overrated. Don't waste an evening on it. Buffet was good but not special.
Casino was a good size and clean. Watch out for the locals!
Beach was beautiful and clean. We had a private area in the Platinum section.
One thing about this hotel that really irked me that they were very stingy with their premium liquor. If you ordered it , they made you sign a chit for it. Once on the beach bar I asked for Canadian Club and the bartender said there was none , although I could see it. Most of the staff were very good, but there is always the odd one or two. We were told by Sunwing that this hotel was 5 star, no way. Maybe 4 star tops. We won't be back as there are way better hotels in Punta Cana.

Room Tip: Remember to go Platinum Club o r you will be disappointed.

We are a gay couple that needed a break and didn't want to go somewhere where we would feel guilty if we weren't doing things all day and partying all night. We decided on the Dominican to avoid being tempted by a crazy night life like PV. Our agent recommended upgrading to the Platinum package which is the ONLY way to go. The accommodations were lovely, clean and quiet. The beach was beautiful white sand with a cool gentle breeze all day and only a short distance from the room. The food was good (not great) and the drinks were premium and plentiful. We met lovely people and had some laughs. At night after dinner the main lounge always had some fun show going on and when that ended there was the Casino (and I won !!)
So I was hesitant about the Dominican but it was beautiful and unlike PV you could actually enjoy the sun and surf!!!

Room Tip: At first we wanted to be on an upper floor with a view but stayed on the ground floor near the beach...
