“Tony & Joan's Excellent Ninth Visit.”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

Again just another amazing time as usual. Everything gets better every time we return. Will not go into details, just read our previous reviews of this lovely hotel. Our "second home." Looking forward to returning April 5-15. Have never seen as many positive reviews for a hotel as this one. We highly recommend it. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: The higher floors the better.

Where to begin...so many positives with this resort. I'll start with the staff. The entire staff team from the moment you walk on the resort to the moment you leave are just fantastic. The animation team learns your names and greets you every day, simply walking down the hallway the maids even say Hola and make you feel welcome. The food on the resort was delicious, make sure to try the fresh bread. The views offered from the resort are amazing, you can watch the sunrise from the bridge to the elevator or the beach. The beaches get full sun all day but have enough palm trees and cabanas if you would like shade. We booked a Junior Suit room, and from what I can tell, was a much better room than the standard. We didn't join the privilege club, and after hearing about what the perks were and staying for a week without being a part of it, it was not worth the upgrade. Also, the resort has lots of stairs leading to the other buildings, try to stay in the main building if you don't want to hike everywhere. Excellent stay, especially for the price.

Room Tip: Request a top floor room in the main building. There are a lot of stairs to the other rooms if not...

It was our 5th time to this hotel. Mainly because we are treated very special by the staff.
And we will return for a sixth time next year .....God willing. One complaint from my husband is that the food could be hotter.
The Animation staff are friendly and a special mention for Carolen, Carlos and Pablo.
Pablo the pool maintenance has such a wonderful voice that he should be featured at the lobby lounge for an hour every night.
And my last mention is the dining room staff with a special mention for Dadys the maitre d' and Claudio....a gem
Alfonso the breakfast cook is always ready to serve his special omelets for breakfast.

While the town of Samana isn't something you want to spend a lot of time in, this resort makes up for it. Rooms were very nice and while our view was limited by our location and a slightly lower price, we opted to stay there in part because we were above the lobby and got Wi-Fi in our room!
Specialty restaurants were good, but the main dining room was also terrific and the wait staff were very nice. Property sits atop a cliff with fantastic views. Elevator to the beach made it easy to get there. Pool was good too and I discovered my newest most favorite beverage - Coco Loco! Loverly. Food selection at the buffet was extensive and there was always fish, which I love.

Room Tip: Rooms above the lobby have less of a view, but Wi-fi is usually available from them.

My wife and I just returned from the Grand Bahia Principe Cayacoa and what a wonderful time, If you don't have a great time here then you should not be traveling . All the staff just cant do enough for you and friendly, we like lots of water and beer in our fridge and the maid always maid sure we had more than enough. Evelin is the beach bartender with a wonderful singing voice and just loves to sing to you while mixing a perfect drink always, Thanks Evelin , The beach is a brown sand beach and not real big but there is always a beach chair or bed for everyone, if you want a beach bed get up early to get a towel on it to reserve it, My wife and I are 50 years young and I would say we are fussy we don't like dirty, bugs, snakes, lizzards, and my wife is a vegetarian plus a very fussy eater. and we just could not find anything about this hotel to complain about always lots and great food , The views of the town that is built into the mountain side across the bay are breath taking . we stayed in room 436 and as far as I am concerned it was the best view , we overlooked the bay full of boats and the town built into the mountain side . better than looking into a empty ocean . We were at the hotel for 10 days and was never bored once always something to do or just go out onto the wonderful terrace and have drinks with other Canadians and it is 80% Canadians right from the east to the west and all ages 25 to 80 it was great . So don't hesitate just go for it and have a great time. Cheryl and Kevin

Room Tip: room 436 overlooks the bay and the town built into the mountainside and has a wonderful balcony .

This was my first time in the Dominican Republic and I was a little worried that we chose a hotel in a location that I was not too familiar with. Little did I know that this hotel is beautiful and on an amazing tropical location that is so unique! We stayed here from Jan 21-28, 2014. The hotel is located on Samana Bay overlooking the town in the most beautiful tropical setting. The hotel staff is the friendliest and happiest people I have met anywhere throughout my travels! The staff made us feel like family. This can only be a reflection on the management. The animation team led by the assistant manager Carlito was extremely friendly, respectful, energetic and made our stay enjoyable. Daviel, Pablo, Yafrancy and Fernando kept the guests entertained and ensured to include everyone in the daily activities by the pool, beach, dancing on the terrace and evening shows. Phelix played the softer dance music for everyone on the terrace and then livelier dance music at the Disco. The animation assistant manager Carlito and his staff was quick to react the one morning when it rained until noon. They were quick to setup activities and games on the terrace to ensure the guests were kept busy. The bartenders and servers were constantly smiling and GENUINELY happy to be serving us, from the buffet, lobby bar and terrace, swim up bar in the main pool and snack bar. Julian at the Casita snack bar was always attentive and helpful. We ate at all 3 all a carte restaurants and really enjoyed the food at the El Pescador (seafood) and Orquidea (gourmet). The hotel is extremely well kept and clean as we have been accustomed to from a Bahia Principe hotel. The rooms were great with an amazing view. We preferred being in the main building as it was close to all the activities. There are upgraded villas but are away from the main building and require taking the little bus or a lot of stair climbing. The beach is accessible by an elevator which provides a unique view. The beach is nice and according to the others in my group the clearest swimming water in the Dominican (they were comparing to both Punta Cana and Puerto Plata). We booked the catamaran through the hotel’s Scuba Quatic team to go whale watching. This was very convenient as we were picked up at the hotel’s wharf and brought back to the wharf. It is the early part of the season for whale watching but still managed to see 5 whales. I would go back to this property in a heartbeat. I have already bought my lottery tickets!
