First, I just want to say that I did not hate this resort. I just felt very let-down. I read all 569 reviews that were posted at the time of our departure. There were only a few negative posts, so I was feeling pretty pumped about this trip. I am 33 and finally met the lady that I am planning...

This was my first time visiting the Dominican Republic and I have no complaints. The resort was very luxurious and clean and the people were more than friendly. The beach is perfect. As far as entertainment goes at the Bahia Principe it has much to offer. I would say the dinners and lobby entertainment were the best attractions. You have...

My wife and I (both in our 50's) returned March 14th from a 13 day holiday at the Bahia. Why 13 days and not two weeks? More about this later! We loved the Bahia. Great room, fabulous/spacious resort, great personnel, good service, good food and a fantastic beach. All the positive things we read about it were true. Sure there...

My wife and I went for a short 4 day stay at this hotel recently. The only other time I have been in Punta Cana, we stayed at the Melia Tropical. This hotels facilities definitely compare very well with the Melia. It is more modern. The rooms are larger, with much, much nicer bathrooms. I have the same complaints I...

Just got back from Bahia Principe Bavaro yesterday afternoon. We were there from March 11-18th. Today I'm suffering extreme beach and bahia withdrawal! Let me start with the total rating. I wish there was something between four and five gold balls to rate the place. The ONLY thing holding me back from the five stars was that the property is...
