Our stay was 2/5-2/11. We waited in line around 10 minutes to check in. When asked for a resort map, they had none. Really? This is a huge resort and a map would have been helpful. So, before you go, print your own map. They gave us no information on resort activities or show schedules for the week. That would...

My son booked this destination at the last minute as a warm water fishing holiday for a week. I tried to find out what I could beforehand but information on shore fishing in the area is very scant.

My wife and I stayed at Bihia Principe Bavaro January 22 to January 29, 2017. The resort is divided into several communities with Bavaro halfway between the beach and the main lobby and theatre. There is a new area called Fantasia, which opened in 2016, and is reminiscent of Disney World. Fantasia has at least two castles similar to the...

I'll start by saying the main thing that kept me from rating the resort as 5/5 was its size (it is huge). For some people, this might not matter at all. For me, I've decided that I prefer a smaller resort. The only specific negative incidents related to this were trying to get good directions and find things. For example,...
