Me and my husband and son stayed at this hotel April 22nd - April 29th 2006 in the Club Golden section. We had an amazing time. We have traveled to Dominican before and this is by far the best resort we've been to. It was very big, almost too big. Food was excellent along with the service. There was always...

For my wife and I, this was our second trip back to the Bahia Principe, and second time staying in the Hacienda / Diamond Club on the Bavaro side. The difference this time was we brought our 10 year old daughter with us. Our experience and enjoyment last year gave us a good level of comfort in bringing our daughter...

My husband and I, along with another couple, stayed at the Gran Bahia Principe, Punta Cana, from April 30th to May 7th. Although there were a few minor issues (and I stress minor), we couldn't have been more pleased with our week. We booked our trip through Funjet and flew United round-trip from Buffalo to Punta Cana. All of our...

Just returned from a 7 night stay, May 5-12. The grounds were beautiful, picture perfect beach, very friendly staff, and plenty of food and drinks! Let's get the "bad" out of the way first. My only complaint would be the check in process. Our group arrived at 10:00 AM, check in is 3:00 PM. The front desk kept telling us...

First of all i want to thank all that wrote reviews, as i chose this hotel on them. This was our first visit to the DR. Usually we go to Jamaica. I noticed a lot of different ages, not just children or couples, but as mentioned before, not many Americans. My husband speaks Spanish, so we had no problems with...

I just returned from a week long trip to the Bahia Principe (May 6-13) with my husband. We are 27 years old and have travelled extensively throughout the Caribbean and Mexico.

We just got back from our wedding at the Gran Bahia. I would highly reccomend this place for those who are mid 20's - early 30's for a wedding. Like some of the other reviews, the resort is BIG, and full of people so its busy, with lots of alcohol and food everywhere. The beach is busy as are all...
