I just returned from Bahia Principe on November 28th, and i have to say i had a fantastic time! My boyfriend and i stayed at the Diamond club, and i think the upgrade was worth every penny. Hotel Rooms - kept very clean, my only advice would be, to make sure you keep all your valuables in the safety deposit...

We just arrived home from our holiday and I have to say we have no complaints. Although the rooms could be updated and the drinks were a little watered down, the food was great, staff were terrific and overall it was a great place to vacation. A couple of points to those of you who have not travelled there before.......

"Sand flees terrible, unpleasant food, bad diving & tour review.” All in all our holiday was not bad, for what we paid to go to Bahia Principe San Juan Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. I wish I would have know about the diving as we would have went somewhere else. People very friendly, nice country and beautiful hotel and clean. “Bad...

This is definately a trip worth taking again! Our room was clean, no problems, no bugs, saw a couple ants on the balcony, but every home has a critter here or there. Staff were so friendly, some were more friendly than others, but we were always greeted with smiles and Ola! Giving tips and showing your appreciation for the long...

This resort was OK. Very large but easy to get around. Stayed in the Golden Club section. Other than being close to the beach and to the lobby area don't waste your money. You get nothing extra for staying in this section. Rooms are extremely old. Beds are hard and uncomfortable. Had a few bugs in the room but nothing...
