I hadn't stayed in an all inclusive resort before but i certainly think this will be extremely hard to beat. The staff and service were fantastic, they were all so friendly and willing to help. The resort is immaculately tidy and very well laid out with palms and gardens and even though it is not far to walk to any...

It was our first trip to the DR, it was a great place to stay. Had the Golden Package. It was worth the little extra paid. The place was VERY clean. I was very impressed with that.. The buffet was good and varied in selection daily. The Garden Grill and Italian restaurants were very good, the seafood and mexican restaurants...

The lush gardens, attention to detail, and elaborate decor make the Gran Bahia Principe Punta Cana a wonderful place to stay. We spent a great week at this resort from Nov 12 - 19. A few of the highlights were the beach, the food, a daily wedding, and the cleanliness of not only the rooms but all the public areas...

OK. Having read the plethora reviews on this hotel before leaving (seeing as we were travelling with an 11 month old, so we wanted to know the scoop) - I only felt it necessary to add my 2 cents worth -.

Overall, they were very well organized and food and drinks were great. Service was not bad. They did their best in my opinion. Horse back riding excursion was something to remember... Swim-up bars were small but fun. Too bad they were closed so early. However, they can improve on few things.. Their night entertainment at the resort can get boring...

We stayed at the Bahia Principe, Punta Cana from Nov. 6th and returned on 13th. Totally a great vacation. The hotel is massive and very organized, I must say.
