Spent one week July 11-18 with family. I had spent a week there in April and decided to come back because of the beautiful beach and excellent service we had. Comfortable room, good buffet and à la carte restaurants. We loved the steakhouse (Arecife buffet during lunch). My husband had the churasco and I had rib eye steak: excellent! Loved...

To begin with, upon reading previous reviews, It seems some people are reviewing other Bahia hotels on here. The Grand Bahia consists of many resorts all on the same property, (Punta Cana, Bavaro, Turqueso, Ambar, Esmeralda). If you stay at the Esmeralda you are entitled to use facilities at all of them. However Ambar and Esmeralda are the two prestigious...

Guess we should have realized that Dom. Rep. in July would be HOT and HUMID, and boy, was it! That's what pools and beaches are for, but the public areas are not air conditioned, and waiting in line for anything (the concierge, the front desk) or sitting in the lobby trying to use the wi-fi (which was laughably spotty) it...

Arrival Travelled with my sister (July 15-22). We were greeted by VERY welcoming staff and our most attentive butler, Victor. This IS a five star hotel--probably more for single girls than families but nonetheless classy. Ask for Charlie at the check-in desk, not only is he curteous and professional, he's great eye candy. Check your attitude before you leave home...

My husband and I finally got a chance to return to Punta Cana after 10 years. My daughters first time there, my mother's 70th celebration and several other family members nearby. We were absolutely amazed with their customer service and accommodations. Denis Sanchez-manager- was unbelievable, anything we mentioned we liked he made it happened. The rooms were big, comfortable, clean,...
