We had a wonderful 10 days. Lovely resort; very big but always a tram to take. Beach was big and choice of 2 large pools. We enjoyed our restaurant choices. The steak house was delicious and my husband's TBone Steak covered his whole plate! The food was excellent in all the restaurants and on the buffet there was a great...

We have stayed at The Caribe Club Princess 03, Bavaro Princess 04, Melia Caribe 05 and this year Bahia Principe Feb 11th-18th 2006. The Bahia Principe is definitely the best resort that we have been to in Punta Cana....

The summary is, if you're planning on going somewhere to do very little other than lay on the beach and relax, this is a GREAT place. If you're looking for nightlife and a bunch of exciting excursions - you need to...

My partner and I have just returned from a fantastic two-week stay at the Bahia Principe. The weather was glorious, the hotel was spotless, the beach was beautiful and the staff couldn't do enough to help.
