Great bang for the buck

The resort was very large but trolley type transportation was provided and it was never a long wait, the food was decent, acceptable. The frozen drinks were way too sweet. The staff was friendly. The Grand Bahia principe Bavaro was the only resort I noticed that had people raking and removing the massive amounts of seaweed that washed ashore and they did this all day everyday I was there. For me that was a big deal because as you walked the beach and came upon other resorts beaches they were littered with the weed and not very appealing. The vendors in the beach would pass by and try to sell you excursions and eye ware and other trinkets but were never pushy, I would say no thank you and they would just move along and not once while I walked the beach did anyone try to sell me anything unlike Jamaica where every 10 feet people hound you and won't stop most of the time. All In all I had a great trip amd would go back again.

First All Inclusive Experience

This resort was first class. Everyone was very helpful and accommodating. The beach is absolutely beautiful. Definitely worth the price. We were not able to get our booking at a restaurant as they were full upon our arrival so we had to eat at the same buffet all week which was a big disappointing.. Vendors in the village were pushy. We were there to relax and would like to have been able to shop without being bothered by the vendors approaching us to buy from them.

First "all-inclusive!"

Best review on cleanliness. Happy, joyous servers in buffet and restaurants - made dining an enjoyable experience. Food was good, not exotic, but lots of choices and tasty. Constant attention by servers, refilling drinks, clearing dishes. Three huge pools, plus access to ocean's sandy beach. Flowering bushes lining sidewalks, gorgeous lawns and palm trees. Large room and bathroom, two big closets, comfortable seating area, and deck off the suite. Lots of activities in resort lobby, especially on weekends. Downsides: Watch purchases in small shops in resort - no change for dollars, everything is rounded, and no cash back for returns - exchanges only. Lighting in room is poor for reading, writing, computer work. Toilet paper cannot be flushed, goes into receptacle beside toilet. .

What's to Love

It's an all-inclusive beachy bliss for the whole gang.

Bavaro Beach. The pearly white sands are perfecto for a sunny 'n sandy vacay.

Unwinding with a soul-pleasing massage in one of the spa's oceanfront gazebos.

Jacuzzis in the bathroom. You have a constant relaxation option 24/7.

 

What We'd Change

The guest rooms overlooking the avenues can be noisy, so try reserving a room overlooking the gardens/water if you're a light sleeper.

 

Why You Should Go

It's 25 minutes from the airport - a speedy trip to your sandsational setting.

There's a gym and sports for you to avoid that extra vacay weight.

The children's water park is equipped with seven slides - see ya, kiddos.

You have access to everything (except buffets) at Grand Bahia Principe Punta Cana and Turquesa.
