My friend and I stayed at tis magnificent hotel Dec-03 to Dec-17 of 2005. The staff were very pleasant and service was excellent. Food was excellent except the porridge contained sugar and we did not get sick. We drank beer (not soft drinks) and the in room bar had both but only three cans of beer per day for two...

We traveled to the Golden Club Bahia Principe Dec 10-17 with a group of 10 people, 5 couples aged 31-34. This was our second group trip to DR Punta Cana. Yes it is true that the resort is large and that there is a lot of walking to do but so what we were no hurry and after the way...

Just returned from The Gran Bahia. I have travelled to many caribbean resorts and most recently (May 2005) was the RIU Palace Macao in Punta Cana. I loved the RIU, however, I loved the Principe even more. The resort is beautiful. The pools and beach are some of the nicest I have seen. The food in the buffet was okay,...

I will try not to repeat what other people already have written about the resort. We had a great vacation at Bahia Principe. We went there between Dec. 4th and 11th and stayed on the Punta Cana side of the resort. It is a beautiful and clean resort with a breathtaking beach. The people are friendly and hard working. The...

Obviously I knew from the start that the resort could not be a true 5 star with so many rooms, but the reviews were so nice that I was convinced. No turn down service, no place for children to play, the kids club has no material, not attractive at all, we never left our 8 year old child there. Everytime...

This review is intended to be a guide to the people who have already decided to book the Bahia Principe Bavaro/Punta Cana. Our main reason for booking this resort was price. We were two families of four travelling out of Calgary. The children were 8,7,6 and 5 years old. Compared to all the other hotels in the area, it seemed...

We are a 50ish couple who stayed at the Bahia Dec 3-10. The hotel is excellent. we have stayed at Iberostars in Punta Cana, La Romana and Puerto Plata and we found the Bahia superior to all of them. We upgraded to Club Golden upon arrival($20 per day)and received what we thought was the best room in the hotel. Room...

My wife and I just came back from Bahia Principe. The beach is beautiful, however, the beauty is taken away by a huge rusty tanker parked 300m out in the ocean. The buildings, gardens are wonderful. The service is great and we found no problem communicating with the staff. Rooms were clean and spacious, although we did have to kill...
