My husband and I and our two children (ages 11 & 13) visited the Bahia Principe from March 7 - 14th. I can honestly say that we have no complaints. We chose this resort because it was priced right and because our travel agent told us she's never had bad reviews. Although there was only one King size bed in...

This hotel is a bit older but nice. The lobby is beautiful and clean. The rooms themselves were showing their age a bit and we were a bit disappointed at first. But we had a great time at the pool, drinks were plentiful and the strip attached to the resort was great. There was always something going on at the...
