I debated giving this place only 1 star because it wasn't entirely terrible, but there were enough negative incidents that I could not recommend it. I visited Bahia Principe with some friends and my extended family for a wedding in June. I called the resort several weeks before arrival to confirm that my extended family would all be able to...

I depend on this website before making any travel plans.. I looked for advice and suggestions before booking our trip to the Bahia Principe in Punta Cana. With that said, I hope that my honest, maybe even too honest opinions are helpful to those researching this resort. Here's the real deal..... My husband, 14 year old daughter and I booked... More

It took me a while to get around to writing this review, but thought I'd throw in my two cents. A friend & I went to Gran Bahia in mid-May. Excellent deal - 7 nights, air, transfers, etc. for $1200 each, which was well worth it. I've stayed at mostly smaller places in the Caribbean, Mexico, and Maui, so that... More

We just returned from a week stay-6/28-7/25. As my husband accurately stated, thr DR is about 5 years behind Mexico in tourism. Positive- The hotel is lovely, very clean and we were very pleasantly surprised-no bugs; none in the room, or by the bars., or at the beach. We were 2 families and we went to the beach every day....

Just got back from the Gran Bahia. Spent a week from June 24 to July 1 with my wife and 6 month old infant. Not sure why there are so many negative comments about this resort.

You can probably get a good view of the resort from the photos and reviews. I read most of them before going, ignoring the obvious ones from rival resorts or from people who couldn't have a good time in heaven, and I ended up with a pretty accurate picture. Now for the slightly different stuff. i) Ask for a room... More
