Disappointed

I don't even know where to start with this review . . . . we were so very disappointed with SOOOOOO many things. . . . especially the customer service at this resort!!!! I made this reservation 7 months in advance and asked for adjoining rooms for our boys. . . the best they could do was put us in the same building. The A/C barely worked in both of our rooms. The fridge in the kids room didn't work at all! After 6 complaints and on our second to last day there, they finally delivered a working fridge. Every time we tried to book something including transportation back to the airport, everyone was on "break." Normally this would not have been such an ordeal but the resort was so big that it literally took over 30 minutes to keep walking back and forth between the pool and the hotel lobby. I spent half my trip walking to the lobby just to request repairs or service!!! Not to mention my son's money was stolen from the maid service in his room. The best thing I can say about this resort was the food. We just had the buffet each day but it was wonderful! The reason we picked this resort was because we stayed at the same resort in Jamaica and had a wonderful experience. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same about this resort in the DR. Needless to say, we were extremely disappointed and will never stay at this resort again.

The worst place I have stay

I havr been to other Bahia principe property and never had a problem. I travel 4 to 4 times per year and this has been the worst experience I ever had. Pools were very dirty. Air conditioned didn’t work, it just cooled the room. Service was very poor. Water was never stuck in the room in 7 days. I took 17 people with me and I felt horrible. If out of 17 , 17 hated it, there is a problem.

Nice Resort, Better for Families With Kids

My fiancee and I just got back from a 5 night stay at this resort and overall had a great time. The resort itself is clean, modern, and updated. The rooms were clean and spacious, and the majority of the staff were great. We did both agree, however, that this resort would be a better fit for families traveling versus couples- the large majority of the hotel guests were families traveling with young children and a large portion of the resort was geared toward kids. The two main resorts are surrounded by the higher price point "Luxury Bahia Principe" resorts, and guests of the Bahia Principe Bavaro are not allowed on those premises or facilities, while those staying at the Luxury resorts are able to access the main resort grounds. This created a bit of a strange vibe for us. The main complaint we would have was around the restaurants- we went straight to guest services to book our restaurants for the week and were told that there were no reservations remaining except for the last night of our stay. We often walked by the restaurants with plenty of empty tables, so could not understand why these restaurants wouldn't accommodate us. The food at the buffet was great, but felt redundant and disappointing to eat here every meal of our trip.

What's to Love

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

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.

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