Dec 2-9. We used bookit.com for a great rate. Facilities were very nice, clean, safe and virtually bug-free. Staff were friendly and attentive. I took a roll of one dollar bills, thinking I would need to tip to get good service, but it was not necessary - I only left a tip for the maid each morning. This is a...

My husband and I chose this resort for our 10th wedding anniversary. It was wonderful! Amazing beaches, pools and service! The restaurants were fabulous (maybe a little difficult to book though) but the buffets were just as good. We could chose 4 restaurants but we only made it to 3. The Japanese was awesome, I am not really a sushi...

We went to Gran Bahia with another couple, all of us in our mid to late 20's from November 29 - December 6th. We had an amazing time, and in my view this hotel is worthy of the 5 star rating for a tropical destination in a developing Country. To begin, a couple of weeks before our vacation to Punta...

Bahia Principe is a beautiful hotel that is so clean and well run. The service is exceptional. The beach is very relaxing and beautiful. The pools are lovely to swim in being very large, clean, and numerous. Food is very bountiful and always available. Weather is fantastic. I would recommend it as a good place to relax and unwind.
