We stayed at the Bahia Principe from 2nd November - 16th November this year. Following 2 disasterous holidays last year (one where the hotel was still being built (-Bellaverde in turkey and the other being hit by a hurricaine) I made sure I did my research prior to booking this break!! Being tied to a strict budget - (£700 max)...

Undoubtably the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The staff were unfriendly unhelpful and in many cases downright rude, the rooms are unkempt and the place has a air of unhappiness. I like a relaxing time on holiday but I will never NEVER go back to this or any of the other Bahia Prinicipe hotels. E-

Just returned having stayed for 2 weeks. We had a great time. The hotel was spotless, cleaning was continuous, even the toilets were constantly cleaned. The food in main buffet area was very good. Always plenty of choice, although at times not hot enough. There was meat being cooked whilst you waited. My only complaint is regarding the rudeness and...

My husband and I along with our 11 year old son travelled to this resort with much anticipation. My husband had no complaints. I on the other hand was disgusted by how dirty the room was. The fact that not all staff were as a friendly as they should be and the continual lack of towels in our room. Although...

“Stay away from the jungle (building D and H) and not too far from the buffet. Perfect location would be building A/B/C/E/F/G 1-4 (e.g. B-1).”
