Just returned, visited Mar 12 thru Mar 19. We have 3 kids, 10, 12 and 14. The experience was great - no problems. Travel to and fro was problem free (we went via Air Canada) we even got back to Toronto 30 min ahead of schedule! The place is big - both good and bad. It's so big you don't...

Young people beware of the Bahia Principe hotel in Puerto Plata. On March 14th and 15th 90 teenagers were evacuated from the hotel and sent away to other hotels. Reasons given were not clear but it is suspected that the rooms vacated were given to Jetsgo passengers stranded there for longer than anticipated. Very upsetting situation which the hotel and...

We went to this resort as a group, 2 families, 12 persons altogether and 7 teenagers. We had a great family vacation. We had read a lot of the reviews beforehand and were a little worried. We would not hesitate to go back to this resort at all. The resort was very picturesque, the staff were very friendly and helpful,...
