My husband and I along with two others just returned today from Bahi Principe and we wished we would have stayed two weeks. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and the rooms were very comfortable and clean. We were in villa 29 (second floor) which was nicely in the middle - 5 minutes to the beach and 5 minutes to the...

My husband and I stayed here from March 26 - April 1, 2006. We had a great time. When we arrived at the hotel, we were surprised to find a bottle of rum and three t-shirts in our room. Not sure if this was standard or if was because our flight was delayed by 3.5 hours. The staff at the...

Tha facility is big and beautiful. With the difficulty of going out of the resort area to find restaurants and other entertainment I think that going to a large resort with a range of facilities makes sense. In this case it worked beautifully. The grounds are large and provide everything my family wanted. There is a decent variety of restaurants...

This is the first time I've felt compelled to write a review. How anyone could write a negative review about this resort is beyond me. We are a family of 6 and we stayed at the Bahia Principe during March Break. This is our sixth consecutive year at an all-inclusive (Mayan Riviera, Cozumel and Punta Cana). We travelled with Air...

We went the last 2 weeks of March. This was our first time in the Dominican, and our first all inclusive resort. We have been on cruises, and many other southern vacations.
