My husband is an eating machine and we couldn't not stop talking about how good the food was at this resort. The room was beautiful, I definately recommend going for club diamond for the rooms close to the beach. The entire resort is spotless, as soon as you put your drink down, someone picks it up and asks you if...

Just returned from 9 days at the Gorgeous Bahia Principe. Villa 1 Golden Club. Could not have been a better room!!! Many thanks to Albania Batista. We owe this to her. Had a fabulous time.

Returned sunday may 7th from the Gran Bahia Principe in Punta Cana - what a great resort! This is a huge resort with constant trolley buses shuttling you from one end of the resort to the beach areas- take walkie talkies if you have them - each of the couples in our group had one and it was great to...

We traveled to the Punta Cana (Club Golden Jr. Suites) side of the resort with 2 couples (low 30’s and low 60’s), the week on April 15th through the 22nd. We flew out of Hamilton, ON, Ca on WestJet—definitely two thumbs up on the trip. The bus transfer to the hotel went smoothly as well-with the bus check in as...

Like everyone else says, the beach here is amazing. It was defanutely the best part of our trip. It is very relaxing but you do have to get up at 6am to reserve a good seat. The water is very busy with boats going by, so the noise can be a bit much at times. The pools are VERY busy....

I went in the past to Barcelo Bavaro Beach, Grand Paradise, Barcelo in Mayan Riviera and Breezes in Varadero Cuba. I will never go back to Cuba. My boyfriend and I (late 40) had liked very much Barcelo in Mayan Riviera but we would say that the Gran Bahia Principe is much better. The beach is nicer, lots of places...

I want to start by thanking all those that did write reviews on this hotel as they were great in helping us decide where to stay. To put things in our perspective, 5 years ago we went to St. Lucia and stayed at a Sandals. That hotel was also a "5 star" and cost about double what we just spent...
