We went to this resort the first week of February (a group of 14) and had a fantastic time. FOOD - I read a lot of reviews about the food in the buffet being cold. I never found this to be a problem. There themed nights and lots of selection. Yes some stuff was repeated but unless you are eating...

If you are seeking a resort that oozes customer service, dedication and satisfaction to their guests, the Bahia Principe San Juan is not the place for you. We were a party of six and plagued with multiple issues and situations which continued to reinforce our decision not to return or recommend this resort to others. Some matters were very concerning...

Resort is very clean and staff was very friendly. I like the room layout having many 8unit building s spread out through the resort reduced the noise and made it easy too find some quiet away from the main pool. We had a great time . The nightly entertainment could use some improvement. I would go back 😁
