I booked this holiday as I have been to the Grand Bahia in Mexico and had the best holiday ever, so I thought I would try the Grand Bahia in the Dominican. On arrival we checked in and I asked the receptionist if the room had a bath, no one seemed to know what a 'bath' was, after 15 minutes...

I highly recommend this resort. I was pleasantly surprised to find myself totally satisfied with my experience. I wrote the concierge a couple of days prior to leaving to ask if it would be possible to have a room close to the centre of the resort as the bungalows are spread across the expanse of the property. As I was...

I just want to start by saying the staff at this resort were phenomenal. Everyone was very kind and always willing to help. However, I didn't go to a resort to speak nicely with wait-staff. I went to relax and enjoy myself. This is pretty hard to do when you are lying by the pool and WITHOUT WARNING a cart...
