The Gand Bahia Principe was generally a very nice resort with great facilities and beach. However there were several incidents that made our visit less than enjoyable and thus my lower rating for overall experience. First the cons. - Our flight was cancelled and we arrived a day late. Even though the hotel was notified thru GOGO Travel there seemed...

Just got back from a week stay at Gran Bahia Principe Bavaro. (Jan 25 - Feb 1) 7 days of nothing but sunshine! What an amazing resort. It’s huge, so big it needs two of everything just to facilitate guest’s needs. FYI Gran Bahia Principe is divided into two sections, which is why when looking to book you will see...

We stayed at the Bahia Principe from Jan 19 to 26th 2007. We have to agree that after reading so many reviews of this place, and having traveled to a large number of hotels in the carribean, there really isn't anything to complain about. This place is huge. But, it is a well-oiled machine. While we were there, it was...

My stay at the Bahia Principe from February 24 - March 3 was an absolute heavenly vacation. I went with my two children aged 14 and 7 and I can't say enough about this resort. I visited Punta Cana 2 years ago and returned again to this lovely resort. We stayed in the Premier Section of the resort which was...

This is about my 20th trip south and have to say I was very reluctant about going to the Dominican Republic because I had heard about people having stomach issues.

Gran Bahia Principe in Punta Cana is a beautiful resort. Either travelling with your mate or with kids it has lots to offer. The rooms and resort are very clean. The people are very friendly and accomodating. The people working there don't make that much money so if you want good service be ready to have some US $ for...
