Four of us (early 30's) returned from the Bahia Principe, Punta Cana a couple of weeks ago. The resort is beautiful, the food and drink plentiful, the staff friendly and the beach perfect. Room selection: We are from Toronto and were meeting friends from Calgary at the resort. I emailed the resort in advance and they met my request to...

My husband and I (age 35 & 40) just returned from this resort Feb 19th after one week. We went with another couple and everyone truely enjoyed themselves. The weather was outstanding (bring lots of SPF30, you will run out!), the beach unbelievably clean and the resort fantastic. Every year our group of 4 travels somewhere hot; we've been to...

We had a great time at the Gran Bahia Principe. The resort vastly exceeded all of our expectations. We read many of the previous reviews on this site, and a lot of the advice provided was helpful. For example, many people have written on the subject of tipping. At no time did we feel pressured that anyone at this all-inclusive...

Arrived on Feb 11 to a week of paradise at the Gran Bahia. Our rooms were located in Building 15 - perfect location for the late afternoon siestas at the pool and quick walk to the Lobby for an evening of fun. We traveled with 2 other couples and none of us have any complaints except to say we wish...

There was always something to do. The food was very good. We recommend the Japanese restaurant and the Las Olas restaurant (steak house only on friday nights) The...

My family of five (including two teenagers and one pre-teen) stayed from Feb. 9-16 at this resort. The resort is stunning and the beach is definitely one of the most beautiful. We had villa 31, right beside the swamp which is really more of a marsh. The resort has done a good job of preserving the natural ecosystem and this...

First, the positive comments: The hotel is gorgeous, the rooms very spacious and attractive, everything immaculate, and the grounds beautiful. The pools are crystal clear and of a temperature which makes them refreshing yet comfortable at the same time. We never had any trouble finding lounge chairs. The beach is absolutely beautiful and you can literally walk for miles. When...

I don't normally give 5 stars, and I amost gave 4 here but we had such a good time at the Bahia Principe. We had regular ROOMS and they were quite nice. We mostly hung out at the middle pool which was quieter and always easy to find a nice spot to lounge. The beach and pool by the beach...

We just returned on 2/13/06 after an eight-day visit. The resort was simply beautiful. We were in the premier club, as we are "empty nesters". Unfortunately, we paid the extra price and there were children. However, after the second day, we noticed they were not in the pool. The room was very nice, with a king size bed. Spacious and...
