We stayed at Bahia Principe San Juan (golden club section, building E9) from march 10 to 17, we received the key of our room in the bus from the airport to the hotel (trip of 1h30), when we arrive they delivered our luggage in the room. The room was really nice, cleaned everyday, air conditioning working, good real king mattress...

Although the BP is an ok/good resort, it by far misses the mark of a 4.5 star as it is rated by Air Transat Holidays. At best it is a 3.5. The first issue we had was that Air Transat "forgot" to book us on the flight. So we had to wait in line for over an hour for them...

The Bahia Principe is a really beautiful oceanside resort and my husband and I found our stay very satisfying and totally relaxing. I didn't know what to expect given the disparity of the more recent reviews; however, our stay was virtually problem free and we were delighted with the hotel accomodations, the extensive and well maintained grounds, the restaurants and...

We were a party of 19 celebrating my brothers 40th birthday. During the coach transfer a member of staff from the hotel tried to allocate our rooms. Being there were 19 of us, this completely threw her. We had already sent a letter explaining how the 5 rooms were to be allocated as some people had young children/babies. At first...

We were concerned by so many poor reviews but having just spent a week at the Bahia Principe Hotel in San Juan, we just loved it and had an absolutely fantastic holiday! This was our first time in the Dominican Republic. The resort is lovely, all buildings are 2 storey high, mingled around palm trees and coconut trees, set in...

Stayed at the Bahia Principe this time last year, thought I would write this review because I use this site a lot and should really start giving my reviews! Loved the Bahia Principe, the grounds are gorgeous, and you never fail to see these hard working people trimming trees, cutting grass, and picking up after their guests! The only thing...

Our family of 4 went to the Bahia Principe Mar 2-9/06 and had a wonderful time. My 16 and 14 year old kids were blown away as we pulled into the resort.
