We stayed 8 nights, with a group of 4 adults and 3 kids. We had a pleasant surprise when we checked in as we got upgraded to privilege thanks to Fanny. Privilege gives you upgraded, closer to the beach rooms, access to a less crowded part of the beach and the Terrace bar/restaurant with more choices of drinks/food. We enjoyed...

We enjoyed the beach and scuba. Very nice. Great snorkeling right in the swimming area of the beach. Best we have seen in the Caribbean. Rooms were a bit outdated but nothing to complain too much about. Plenty of food to eat and entertainment to enjoy. Would recommend and stay here again. Friendly staff.

This was our first time in Dominican Republic and to be honest, first time outside Europe. First important thing is that 4* in EU is not same as 4* outside EU. EU standard is much much higher. We chose privileged room and that was very wise decision. With such room you have some extra things such as 24h rooms service...

Just sitting here passing the time of day before our airport transfer back to Espana. Have had an amazing time and some very much needed down time.

2nd time to the resort as an upgraded guest. Restaurants were lacking good service (long waits, poor variety), no poolside or beachside drink service. Bed was hard and uncomfortable. Won't come back!!

Power outages, very slow service and response from staff, rude staff. Disappointed with the resort. The reviews that we read were misleading. The room was hot due to power outages and air conditioning issues. The food was good and the menus changed daily.

Bayahibe is about 1 hour car from airport, but after experience in Punta Cana, all I can say is: Totally recommendable. Nice beach installations, good food, empatic attendance from all services.
