What an eye opener for a first time traveller, but really not sure what to expect! When we finally arrived a Puerto Plata airport is was and interesting experience. From a country that has everything (Canada), to a ountry that is poverty stricken, it allows you to appreciate what you have. The ride to the resort was an experience in...

My partner and i stayed at this resort as our first ever holiday together and we loved it even to this day - & we went in May 2002! The drive from the airport was certainly an eye opener due to the way people drive & the state of the roads but regardless of the country the people are so...

We went from Jan 05 til the 12th. It was a great time all in all! The beach was great no matter what the spoiled say. Yeah sure it's not white sand but it's a beach with warm water and you don't have to walk a mile out to get wet. Sand fleas- no worries. Rub rum on your legs....

So I convinced my family to go somewhere tropical for New Years and we picked this resort. Went thru Signature vacations and was happy with service provided. Got in at noon and no problems checking in. We were lucky to be stationed in the H area as this is really close to the lobby and restaurants. We had warm water...

We stayed at Bahia Principe Jan 2-9/06. It was my 9th all inclusive vacation in the last 3 years, all were 3+ stars or better. I've been in Punta Cana, Cancun, Puerto Plata, Santa Lucia,Cuba, Cayo Coco,Cuba, La Romana.

I've travelled quite a bit in North America, but never anywhere tropical, so I really didn't know what to expect. The hotel was beautiful, the people very nice and cordial...but the food sucked! The restaurants that you could reserve seating in at night were rather well done, but the buffet style where most people had their meals was awful. I...
