My husband and myself have just returned from two weeks at the Bahia Principe San Juan. First of all let me say this is definately NOT a four star resort and I have written to First Choice Holidays asking them to justify their star rating. We picked First Choice because of the new seating that they have introduced on the...

We stayed at Bahia Principe from January 14 till January 21, 2006. Usually, we are not picky eaters or picky about service, but this time, we all truly hated what we were served and how we were served. The staff doesn't speak English, and barely understands you when you're asking for something as simple as a glass or a knife....

My wife and I (we are Dutch) went there from the 5th - 15th of January. Once you step of the airport you realize this is a 3rd world country, people are very poor indeed. The service and product the friendly staff of this hotel deliveres in this hotel is therefor very good indeed but don't compare it to European...

I am 19 years old, and I went to the Bahia Principe with my boyfriend who is 20, from January 10th to the 17th. There is not much I can find wrong with this resort except for a few thing you may want to know. - the sand on the beach at the Bahia Principe is not white sand, and...

I have just returned from a week long stay at the Bahia Principe in San Juan. I went with my husband and another couple. I was the only one who had been to the Dominican before (I stayed at the Bahia in June 2005, with friends from work). Since I reccommended the resort, I was nervous about everyone else liking...

A large resort, nicely spread out over a large terrain. Beautiful gardens everywhere, the most friendly staff you'll ever find and everything is kept clean the whole day. The food is abundant and everyone should be able to find something of their taste. It is not haute cuisine but good enough. The wine however doesn't deserve to bear the name....
