My husband and I just returned from the Bahia this evening. I have to say that we had an excellent time there. The only reason that I did not give this resort a five is because my husband said that 5 would mean that everything was PERFECT and we do have a FEW very small complaints. The bad news first:...

If you want a relaxing vacation, this is the place to go to! As far as I could tell from when we were there it is more of a family resort than a party place. My family and I went the summer after it opened (July 2005), and since it wasn’t the peak travel season the hotel bumped our rooms...

Just got back from Bahia Principe. Loved everything about it. I can't believe people actually complain about this hotel. After reading some negative reviews about this hotel, I had second thoughts about booking, but I still did. Whoever is thinking about booking this hotel, please ignore the negative reviews. My husband and I went for one week and enjoyed every...

On arrival at the Gran Bahia, we were amazed to see the most beautiful expansive lobby with fantastic marble floors. From the first moment, we found the service provided by the staff to be of excellent quality, everyone was so attentive and helpful. They have to be among the most friendly hotel staff I have experienced! Also, everyone we came...

Just got back from our stay at the Bahia Principe Punta Cana. Warning: if you are from the states, don't expect great service. Pros: The beach was beautiful, although packed with topless smokers. If you put your blinders on, you could look past that and take in the beautiful water and white sand beaches. The rooms were immaculate. Despite other...
