This was our second visit to Punta Cana and our first to Grand Bahia Principe Bavaro. The resort is extremely large but very easy to get around. They have a great selection of restaurants and bars, but you are limited to 3 reservations at the nicer ones. The staff was great throughout our stay. We had excellent service everywhere we...

This resort was awesome. The employees were friendly, the rooms were clean, and the landscape was beautiful. However, I strongly recommend bringing lots of one dollar bills for tips. The shopping wasn't that great because everyone sold the same thing and I personally thought items were pricey. The pools close at 6 pm and the lobby at 11 pm. I...

The chech-in was very fast but we arrived late in the evening and we had a private transfer from the airport. I've noticed that when...

This used to be our favourite hotel on the strip. We returned for our fourth visit to celebrate our 25th. Wedding anniversary. Having e-mailed several times with our room requests we expected that our request would be granted. When we arrived we were given a complimentary upgrade to club Diamond as expected for returning guests. The room we were allocated...

Check in was brutal! Had the whole bus load go into a room for a mass check in. Then would not let us pay for the safe that should be included anyway until later. It was pouring rain so after our shuttle took us to our room, we had to turn right around and walk right back to the lobby...

We were very happy with our stay here! It was clean, the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was amazing. It is very large and we chose to walk everywhere but they have a great trolley service if you don't want to walk. The entertainment was good, lots of choices. The room was clean and comfortable. It was...

Avoid at all cost. Check in was long lines and super slow. Was not able to get into room until 4:00 pm and hour late. The shower is broken in our room. Called to get it fixed a guy shows up and said it would be fixed later in the day. Never was. There are no bed spreads, just a...

My first trip to Punta Cana and this hotel was amazing! Although the hotel is huge, it was very easy to adapt to the environment and there are signs everywhere, so it's impossible to get lost. You also don't have to worry about walking long distances because there is a bus train that goes every 5min from reception building to...
