A lot of the key points about this hotel have already been covered in other reviews. We had a great holiday but then we just wanted to lie about on the beach or by the pool and do very little. The hotel is about 90 minutes from Punta Cana airport and I suspect that this puts off a lot of people. For us this was a plus, the hotel was much quieter (in terms of certain of the noisier nationalities) than the Punta Cana/Bavaro hotels The food in the buffet was typical Dom Rep fare - reasonable vari...

After recommending my sister to consider a change from Punta Cana and Puerto Plata resorts I suggested Grand Bahia Principe and it was a hit. She booked for three days with my brother in law and their three daughters and had wonderful time and loved everything including resort, pool, shows and staff. My sister has been to many resorts in different countries and if she was satisfied then I can guarantee you that it is worth the money.

This resort was so big that we did not know what to do with ourselves! There were plenty of things going on all the time. I loved getting up early and just walking the grounds. It was just a great relaxing trip! The pool is also huge with a fun swim up bar that was always packed even in the off season of May when we went. The food was also great and I suggest definitely going to the restaurants. Whenever you go to an all inclusive, you should book your reservations to restaurants upon arri... Read more

stayed june3-9 and had a great time. Our room faced the beach and we were right by the beautiful pool. My finance had a horrible tooth ache and Elisabeth from the Golden lounge was great. She hooked him up and went above and beyond. The place had good food and the Ala Cartes were ok too. Upgrading to Golden allowed us to use the internet on their computers for free. Great excursions to Catilina Island and Crazy wheels. I Highly recommend staying here.

The hotel is quite clean but service is not very good. The staffs don't always understand English. The food is terrible. Same things everyday. There are two shows that couldn't be called shows. And the entertainment in the hotel is poor. I don't understand why it's rated 5 stars. It should be 4 stars or lower... The sea is not clean. Will not come back here.

Just got back from the Grand Bahia Principe after 14 nights stay. Have to say we had a great holiday and now a bit sad to be back home. The hotel was good, any issues we had got sorted such as beech towels missing on arrival and safe breaking down mid holiday all got sorted pretty quickly. I would say after staying at a Bahia in Mexico a couple of years ago that this Bahia is still probably learning to meet the chains expected standards but you can see progress being made.

The staff friendly activities interesting the place clean the beach was great and I'm ready to go again just talking about it.

We booked a last minute vacation for my birthday and by the look of the pictures it was beautiful and the ocean was blue/turquoise so we booked and took the upgrade for the room which made us Royal Golden clients. This meant that we had a faster service than others a better room with 24/7 room service. We arrived at the hotel and true to their word we had a seperate check in than the other guests.

The animation entertainment team were amazing and kept everyone from getting bored, the members of the team who stood out were Roberto and Yaneyfri who were the best! The only criticism I have is that in the evenings when the shows are going on the bar simply doesn't have enough staff and sometimes you can order a drink and then never get it. Saying that, if you are going to The Bahia Principe without children and happen to find yourself in the night club Roberto was by far the best barman I hav... Read more

This was my fourth trip to dominican, first to this resort and La Romana. Resort was nice, well laid out, good shows, good food. Staff were a bit pushy about tips and cleaning staff was not good. We would leave every day in the morning often not returning til dinner time with no fresh towels, beds unmade, mini fridge empty, not even fresh water.
