Once we seen the resort we were amazed by how beautiful and well kept it was. Grounds were always keep clean and everything was always looking new. The workers never stop.. I swear...

Just returned yesterday (February 5, 2006) and wanted to let everyone know of the nice time we had at the Bahia Principe. Hotel: Beatiful--rooms were nice and clean and nicely decorated. Our maid was lovely, and even though she didn't speak any english, we got along just fine with a bit of sign language and a lot of smiles. Staff...

We have just returned (february 3rd) from a wonderful holiday at this hotel. We have travelled extensively, so feel that we have much to compare with. We had read previous reviews regarding the Dominican Republic so we were a little skeptical at first. We have absolutely no complaints at all and believe me, I am the first to complain should...

Arrived home after a 1 week stay at the Gran Bahia Principe in Punta Cana. We did enjoy alot of things at this resort but by no means consider it to be a 4 or 5 star. Check in was a breeze. Room on the ground floor flooded 3 days in a row due to heavy rainfall. The smell gives...

Just returned from one week at Bahia Principe in Punta Cana. Having read the reviews here we emailed some requests (2nd floor room, adjacent rooms, location of rooms) to them the week before, got a couple of responses, but never got a final confirmation that our requests would be met. When we arrived, there was no sign of our email...

We just spent a week at Gran Bahia with friends and it was very good. We've travelled to different places in Caribbean including Dominican so we have basis for comparison. The weather was great except a couple of windy days where the water was rough. Check-in: Way more complicated than it had to be. We got our bracelets on the...

Just returned from the Bahia Principe after a one week trip with my girlfriend. We are both in our late 20's and had plenty to do. The customer service at the resort is amazing and better than I've seen at hotels in the U.S. Sorry, but I don't really get the people who say the resort is too big. We...

We returned on 02/01/06 from a 7 day stay, and agree with all of the positive experiences that have been posted in the past regarding this resort, so I won’t reiterate those.
