I went to the bahia principe with 8 other persons of varied ages (from 14 to 48) and we all enjoyed everything of this hotel. The staff, the food, the rooms, the pools, everything was just great. The best thing of all at the hotel is the party in the street every nights. That's just cool. I recommend this resort...

It is over an hour from the airport on some very bumpy and pot holed road for the most part. The hotel is a large complex with very friendly staff with colourful and well maintained gardens. I would not recommend a...

We normally stay at all 5 star resorts but this resort had it all. The weather was warm and comfortable with a beautiful ocean breeze day and night. The...

Just returned from an island paradise. The people are poor but proud, every one we met was polite and pleasant no negativity at all. The resort was rated 4 star and was probably more a 5 star. Everything was spotlessly clean the food was unbelievable, something for every-ones taste and different each day,"so much food so little time".The weather was...
