My wife, two kids and I stayed at the Bahia Principe for a week (Jan. 16-23), we had a real good time. I won't get into detail about everything in the resort that most others have mentioned, just a quick overall reveiw. Food: It was good, real good. I was never disappointed and neither were the kids. Lots to chose...

Just got back from an amazing stay at the resort. 24-hour all-inclusive heaven! The food was great, the drinks plentiful and the service one of the best we've seen anywhere we've traveled! If you're booking your holiday on your own and you are traveling through Skyservice I would advise you to PRE-BOOK YOUR SEATS WITH THE AIRLINE DIRECTLY BEFORE YOU...

My wife and I stayed 5 days, Thursday, 1/19/06 to Monday, 1/23/06. This may be fraught with misspellings since I'm going from memory so please don't quote me on names, etc. The Bahia Principe in Punta Cana seems to have two lobbies and two 'sides'. One is called Punta Cana, the other is called Bavaro. I have no idea of...

My wife and I have visited north and south of the dominican republic several times. We have tried 3 star, 4 star and five star resorts/hotel complexes. They are all absolutely fantastic. Its only the type of people that the cheaper holidays attract that can spoil your fun. I am always awestruck by the food and the way that dominican...

My wife, two children and I just returned from a week's vacation at the Gran Bahia Principe Punta Cana on January 22nd. The resort is amazing. It is spread out over several acres and is connected by paths bordered by lush, 'manicured' vegetation. There is even a complimentary open air shuttle bus service down the main pathway which the kids...

Well, what can I say! This resort is absolutely fabulous. I used trip advisor for months prior to booking our vacation. It was an extremely helpful tool for choosing a resort. What I can't figure out is how anyone could complain about this hotel? The grounds are immaculate. The hotel lobby, restaurants etc,. are breathtaking. Everything is marble or granite....
