When we arrived, we were checked in in about 10 minutes and the staff helped us get our luggage into our room. The room was very clean, exactly...

My girlfriend and myself returned home from the Bahia Principe on the 26/10 and can honestly say it was the best holiday we have both had. The food was terrific in the Buffet restaurant and was blown away by the variety each evening. The Mexican, Italian and Seafood restaurants were very nice, but our favourite was the Mediterranean and would...

My husband, myself and our 12 year old stayed for a week in July. Have to say, was one of the best vacations we've ever had! Food: Most all inclusive resorts you dread when it's time to eat. The food was amazing!! We actually looked forward when it was time to eat. NOTE: Reserve the a-la-carte as soon as possible...

Two Canadians ages 29 and 37 looking for warmth and fun.I have figured out that those who complain must not know how to enjoy life, because my trip to the Bahia Principe in San Juan, Dom.

I have rated this hotel excellent although I found the bars,(at least inside the hotel),to be poor. I was on a relaxing family holiday with my wife,(the Dragon),and two daughters.Had I been more interested in getting drunk it would have rated lower,but I do like to taste the rum in my coke. The bar staff were very slow at times...

We both went in September - the hurricane season!! But the weather was roasting so we had nothing to worry about! We had an excellent time.

“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).”
