Travelled to many wonderful resorts and I must say they deserve the 5 stars.
Clean, calm and good food. Lobster was delightful!
Steakhouse and the Japanese restaurants were very good. Wasn't too impressed on the Italian but then again...I am italian and know what real authentic italian cuisine is.
Regardless, it's really a special and classy place. I really had a wonderful time.
The beach wasn't as nice as i was accustomed to but I guess I'll blame it on Hurricane Irene. Lots of seaweed.
If you are travelling with a teenager, please do yourself a favour and bring along one of his/her friends...It's TOOOOOO quiet for them and they may remind you each and every day how bored they are. No animators in that section.
If you think of going to the other sections of the Bahia Principe, think again...tons of people crowded by the pool like ants and extremely loud.
The Esmeralda treated us with white gloves...bravo. This the only section of the Bahia Principe Punta Cana that i would ever stay at.
