went from January 2-9 2005 Hotel is new, so it is very clean, everywhere. Rooms, pools, rest, everything was spotless. I have a few good things and bad things to say. Hotel check in was a nightmare, took almost 2 hours. Front desk people are not the nicest, and the language barrier was tough. We got a great room, closer...

Just returned from the Bahia. There the week December 31/04 to January 7/05. The place is amazing. Grounds impecable, rooms, very clean, pools large and clean, beach simply amazing!! Weather bizarre, sun, wind, rain. As fast as the rain came in it was gone and the sunshining again. It did rain every day but didn't get discouraged and sometimes it...

Just got back 7 Jan from a 1 week vacation and this hotel is only a 4 Star on it's best day with the sun shining and no wind blowing! Most of the time the service, beverages and food are 3 star. The food in the pool side cafes is terrible and they really need to make some quality control...

This was our 3rd time in the Domican in the past 6 months. Both previous times were at two various Iberostar properties (the one at La Romana was by far our favorite). We were at the Bahia Principe Punta Cana from 12/29 through Jan 5. Problems started from the time we stepped foot in the hotel lobby: our room was...

For the money you can't go wrong here. The place is beautiful and well maintained. We were there between Christmas and New Year and the staff could not have been more accommodating. The only weak point may be the food - it wasn't very good in the specialty restaurants but frankly we were there for the sun and the beach....

My boyfriend and I vacationed with two other couples at the Bahia Principe Punta Cana from Dec. 1, 2004 - Dec. 8, 2004. The first of our problems came during check in. Two of the three couples did not have reservations in the computer. We had paperwork with confirmation numbers and names of people we had spoken to but, it...

My family spent New Year's week at Bahia Principe and had a great time. The best qualities - beach, pristine pools, cleanliness, expansive rooms, etc. have already been well documented. I also feel that food and service are strong points. There's so much variety in the buffet, you can't go wrong. We ate at 4 a la carte restaurants. The...

My husband and I just returned from 5 days at the Bahia Principe and we were thoroughly disappointed. The grounds and villas are all beautiful, but the resort is all flash and no substance. The food ranged from mediocre to absolutely terrible. Over cooked, tasteless, and sometimes unknown...even the 'themed' restaurants were bad. I had salmon at their seafood restaurant...

5 stars! What galaxy are you from? Just returned from a week in Punta Cana. One giant step down from Mayan Riviera. Beaches pristine, rooms clean, food sucked (same food different day) and the service non existant. The major activity of the day was searching for a maid to give you some towels for showering. The help was rude most...
