My boyfriend and I stayed at the Grand Bahia Principe Bavaro from March 7th-14th. I read a ton of reviews on here prior to booking. Despite some negative comments we went ahead and booked our trip. We were more than impressed with EVERYTHING this hotel offers. We travel often and have been to many all inclusive resorts and this one is definitely at the top of our list.
The hotel is absolutely beautiful. From the lobby, grounds, pool, common areas and the rooms...everything met or went above our expectations. It's simply a beautiful resort.
The staff is incredible! So friendly and so accommodating. They truly ensure that you have the best week ever.
The beach is beyond beautiful. It was slightly busy (considering it was march/spring break) but we always had a chair to lounge on. The one day we arrived at 10 am to the beach and yes it was busy but the friendly staff on the beach were quick to get us a lounge chair.
Buffets are great. Lots of variety. The a la cartes were amazing!! The Japanese one is a must do! They cook right in front of you. Such a good show!!
The hotel is very big. It spreads people out nicely. We were staying in the Premier and to get to the beach it was about a ten-fifteen min walk. We're active people so we didn't mind. They do however have a trolly that runs constantly that you can use to get around the resort.
There's a water park for kids on the resort. :) shopping on the resort in a little town/village type area. Very safe and friendly people.
We have high standards and generally only stay at 5 star hotels. This definitely met our expectations. Disregard all the negativity and spend the week here!! You won't be disappointed.
Overall a great vacation!! I would definitely recommend this hotel!!!
