We just returned , we were there from Jan. 26 thru Jan 30. We had a blast!! Rooms: they were beautiful, roomy, very clean. Bathrooms were nice lots of marble and a whirlpool tub! Mini fridge was filled with beer, pop and water (just leave a small tip with a note and they will give you exactly what you want)...

My wife and I spend a week from jan. 18 to jan. 23 and we really had a great time. This hotel is beautifull, from the lobby to the beach. Since it is a fairly new, I think this hotel will be a very good 4 stars 1/2 when the vegetation will have grown and when they will have resolved...

We were there Jan 20 to 27. Sunquest package from Calgary. Stayed in Club Hacienda room 30104. Let me start by saying we had a great vacation. It was reasonably priced and we got good value. The weather was really good the first four days and overcast the next three. I used this site extensively in order to choose the...

Date: January 30, 2005 Trip Advisor User. Washington, DC area. We returned yesterday from five days at the Bahia Principe. The Trip Advisor reviews were extremely helpful to us in selecting a hotel, so we hope we can contribute something. The reviews were also really useful in teaching us the ropes before we got there, saving us lots of time...

Hi! We stayed at Bahia-Principe January 10-17, 2005. It was my first time in Dominican Republic so I cannot compare it to other resorts. Checkin was fast, even though we had problems with keys--we were 3 people and had only 2 keys. However, whenever we forgot the keys inside, it was no problem to replace them at the front desk...

Just returned from Bahia Punta Cana Jan. 22-29, 2005. The resort is beautiful, the staff most helpful and accommodating. Even though there is a language barrier they try and work through it, instead of just ignoring you. We loved the room, the jacuzzi tub is a plus! We had no problems with mini bar being restocked, and our rooms were...

Just returned from Bahia Principe Jan. 28th. I will try to keep this review short but still will try to cover all the basis. Flight: flight went with no problem, no turbulence. Drive: the drive to the hotel was interesting, dominicains have a peculiar way of driving, so my advice is close your eyes and enjoy the ride! Check-in: I...

Some pros and cons... Resort appearance/upkeep - Beautiful Marble everywhere. Exceptionally well appointed, and maintained. There's a really nice open area lounge/bar near the restaurants that makes for a nice pre dinner or post dinner cocktail location. The resort is very large (about a mile long) so they have these open air buses that go back and forth all day....
