Went to the Bahia Principe 31-Dec/05 to 07 Jan/06. Stayed in the golden package area. Great room, very clean public areas, excellent service, good food, excellent resturant service, great beaches, main lobby area was a great place to meet peaple, nothing to complain about here. Entertainment was a little lacking in content and after about 1/2 hr, we would go...

It's all about the good the bad and the ugly. We went down during Christmas,three couples(well travelled) and 7 young adults,our children. This is our 3rd time in the DR.and probably our least liked hotel.We have been doing all inclusives for 15 years. If you are a food connaisseur you will not enjoy the food. The breakfast is very good...

My family and I just came back from an awesom 2 week vacation at the Bahia Principe Punta Cana. Absolutely incredible. We left Toronto on December 22, 2005 and returned January 5, 2005. We decided to do something a little different this year for Christmas and New Years. We were impressed with some of the reviews we read on this...

Just came back from a family holiday, and we were all very impressed with the resort. So much to say - here are the key points: - The resort is very large. There really is something for everyone here, but if you want a quiet getaway, I would recommend somewhere smaller. Specifically, the main pool was very loud and crowded...

Just returned from Gran Bahia and had a wonderful time! My husband and I traveled with two friends and our only complaint was that it is impossible to find newspapers. We checked the lobby store each day and there was never a paper in English our entire trip. Our rooms were on what was called the "Premier" side which we...

Great place to relax. The beachfront and water were very pleasant. The food was decent (which is good for an all inclusive) and the drinks were good, once relationships were established with the bartenders who knew what they were doing. Best food and drinks to be had were in the lobby complex. Weather was very good. Great place for kids,...
