June stay

Overall, the trip was great, the room was beautiful! We upgraded to ocean view and it was absolutely worth it! The only downfall to the room was that the mattress was extra EXTRA firm. The buffet had great food with lots of choices. The 3 restaurants on site were delicious! For our anniversary, guest services decorated our room and made it feel extra special. Unfortunately, the hotel is quite far from the airport (1.5-2.5 hours depending on the driver) when it came time for departure, it took about 60-90 minutes of our time to simply find out when the shuttle would be picking us up. Since we were on a full day excursion for the last day, we couldn't meet our rep from the shuttle company operated by grand bahia, we didnt know if the front desk would actually follow up, we ended up trying to call our rep. We were routed through at least 10-15 people and disconnected multiple times. No one could help us… and all for a simple pick up time. Although there was some language barrier, the communication was HORRIBLE.

Not the best food

The resort is beautiful and the staff lovely. We had several maintenance issues which they immediately came up to fix with the exception of our entire floor having no hot water for the last day and a half of our stay. The food in the buffet and Italian restaurant are totally tasteless and with the same limited selections daily. The El Pescador restaurant food was delicious, but again a very limited selection. The resort entertainment is worse than the food. The drinks are great though and plentiful. We did several tours including an all day tour to Playa Rincon which was absolutely beautiful and totally worth the money and the all day excursion. The ATV excursion for 4 hours was awesome as well. We would definitely return to DR, but probably search a little harder for a resort with reviews for good food. Also, the pools close extremely early at 6:00 daily. Also, the pools are only cleaned at night and do not have chlorine in them to clean them. Lots of debris floating around. It wasn't overly crowded so there was never an issue of having a chair on the beach or at the pools. Also, they are VERY aggressive in trying to get you to attend their one hour presentation for free gifts. We blew it off, but they attack you as soon as you step into the lobby from outside, the elevators or a stairwell. If you like firm mattresses, you are in luck, because they are extremely firm.

Blown Away By Location

Me and my wife were looking for some getaway time and had heard how beautiful location was. The view that you have of first the city at a distance and then the bay is breath taking. You are then blown away by the service at check in. They really go out of their way to service each and every individual. May be different on weekend, but I arrived on 11/18 @ 1:30 and were checked in immediately, although it said 3:00pm check in. Already had long trip from New York to santo Domingo and then 2 hr drive to Samana so very grateful that this got my vacation going early. Gerdenis at check in was very helpful and accomodating throughout the entire stay,answering every question. We had suite which required shuttle service, and those guys were really attentive as well. Always available at your calling. You will start to get the lay of the land and move on your own, but comfort to know that they were alwaya available. Only issue was jacuzzi in the suite could have been in better condtion. Only other issue was deciding who to give tips to, lol... Great time, would definitely recommend and will probably be back as well.

Grand Bahia Principe Cayacoa in Samana: Variety is Still the Spice of Life

Open your heart to the golden, sun-washed shores and rhythmic blue waters of the Dominican Republic's all inclusive Grand Bahia Cayacoa in Saman. Set in the awe-inspiring Samana Bay, luxury travelers experience a world of peace and beauty. Spa buffs adore the full-service Bahia Spa located in the main section of the resort complex. Visitors longing to unwind poolside enjoy the sizable spa palapa on the deck of the main pool. If you brought along that special someone, the VIP Couples Special, with a flower-and-candlelit private aromatherapy Jacuzzi, a thorough massage and a "relaxation zone" with waterbeds is recommended.

Kick back in a lounger under a shady palapa and indulge in all the beachfront drinks your little tanned tummy can handle, courtesy of the beachfront bar, or enjoy the resort's main pool, which features a giant sunbathing terrace amidst lush tropical gardens and a swim-up bar to quench your thirst. The pool area sports umbrellas and recliners and next to a rather sizable outdoor Jacuzzi. And if the spa wasn't quite enough, slip into the hydro-massage pool where you'll find three hydro-massage sections for pure heaven.

The resort boasts four tasty restaurants offering everything from the freshest of seafood cuisine at El Pescador to the robust Italian fare of Dolce Vita. When the sun goes down at Grand Bahia Principe Cayacoa in Samana, the night offers entertainment with live music and variety shows on the terrace, while the hotel's disco keeps you shakin' to the break of dawn. When the new day dawns, head to the solarium for a sun-shaded hammock or to the gym for some serious calorie burning. Try your backhand on the tennis courts, hit the sands for complimentary windsurfing or kayaking, and browse for souvenirs at the Pueblo Principe shopping district.

When you're ready to unwind and relax in the privacy of your room, the Junior Suite has a private hydro-massage tub perfectly suited to make your cares vanish and help your dancing muscles unwind.
