My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon (August 12-August 19). We had a great time! We were part of Club Golden. Club Golden had a few extra ammenities that the other people didn't. We had our own area to check-out, we had free internet service, and more. It was well worth the money, which wasn't really that...

After spending a week at Bahia Principe, we are glad to return to Toronto. We travelled as a family and found both pros and cons to this resort. Beach: There is seaweed and sand. The water is not clear. However, the sand is nice and white. We were not able to find shade most of the time. The beach is...

Was initially very snobby about going to the Dom Rep as had heard mixed reports, however this hotel was fantastic. Extremely clean, staff very friendly, nice rooms with good sized balconys, and great pool. We stayed for just a week and probably wouldn't have wanted to stay any longer but if you fancy a week not doing anything then this...

This site is great. I did a lot of research for months, e-mailed a lot of people who were very helpful in answering all my questions. We stayed at this resort from June 24-July 1, 2006. It was amazing. My family really had a great time and we will definitely return. We were at the Riu Bambu 2 years ago...

My wife and I, both 49, and our three more-or-less grown children -- 14 to 25 -- descended on Bahia Principe Punta Cana in the second week of August, 2006 to celebrate a milestone in our lives. We've never done the all-inclusive thing before, and my observations should be considered not only as those of a rank novice, but also...
