Good vacation for families with the kids

We went for this vacation as a family of 4 with the 2 kids age 5 and 6. It's a good place for kids. They have a very fun water park. The beach is also great, nice and clean with very little seaweed. Many pools which include kids pools. A mini club that babysits the kids while doing various activities with them and a "mini disco" at 8 every night that kids enjoyed. The resort is huge and there are golf carts that can take passengers to its different parts. At first it can be overwhelming as there are several routes but after a day or so we got used to it. What can be improved: the food especially in the main buffet as well as the buffet itself, it looks like the buffet space can be updated. The room was somewhat outdated but the housekeeping was efficient and kept it clean. Although we had a good vacation we will be looking into a smaller resort next time.

Nice Resort

This resort was very nice and clean. My only complaints would be a bigger casino would be nice, wash cloths in the rooms and the smoking allowed right outside eating areas should cease. Nobody should be exposed to that second hand smoke when going into or leaving the eating area. Other than that this was a beautiful resort for a family visit and accommodates children very well. I would book in one of the adult only resorts next time. The staff kept this place so clean and the grounds and beaches were phenomenal. We did 2 excursions and one was a VIP trip to Saona Island which was absolutely breathtaking. The room needed a minor repair but they were there to fix it very quickly. Once you understand the map of the area it is no problem getting around because they always have little golf cart trains picking you up. My only advice to the resort would be to use more bleach to kill the mold that grows in this humid area. I believe the rooms would smell better too instead of like mildew when you first walk in. It seemed that smell was everywhere though and you get used to it. It is very humid and hot most days so you need the beach and water or the pool unless you are in air conditioning. NIce resort and I would go back but to one of the adult only ones.

A little disappointed

First I just want to say this is soley my opinion on my observation and experience at this resort. This is a beautiful resort, grounds well manicured, very clean. Villas very nice but bathrooms could use some updating. Food was mediocre at most, if you are a person that would like to have an adult beverage you are going to wait until 10:00am when the bars open. Pool doesn't open till 9. Everything seems to run late at this resort. This resort has to employ many but I really didn't see more then maybe a handful that look or acted like they liked their job. They truly did gravitate towards customers that spoke the language. Make sure you take bug spray if you visit, you will need it in the evening. Once again this is a beautiful resort and even with a language barrier and less then exceptional service it was my vacation and I made the best of it.

Poor service

vacation family. The rooms as the pictures, spacious and good accommodation, the cleaning on the room in general was not that good. And the Staff were not very polite. The food options in the poll restaurant were pretty limited each day and also in the buffet. The cleaning was not that good in general, tha maintain de of The hotel and restaurants were seem old and not very well maintained we found popo I’m the pool and early in the morning in the restaurants for The beach you can found cockroaches not very pleasant to seee. The attention of in the staff in general was poor. The beach is beautiful and not very crowded, so it’s family friendly especially when you travel with small kids, the transportation across the complex is pretty good and fun. The shows were good at the bar in the reception, but it was difficult to get a drink with the staff.

Resort Update
Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts has informed us that their Punta Cana complex will undergo improvement projects beginning on July 1, 2019 and continue through late 2019. Included in this project is a complete transformation of the Las Olas I and Las Olas II beach restaurants. Work will be done from July 1-December 15, 2019 between the hours of 8am and 8pm. The services (snacks and drinks) will continue as usual but from the Piscis restaurant and other stations placed around the main pool and beach area. The rooms closest to the area in Grand Bahia Principe Punta Cana, Grand Bahia Principe Bavaro, and Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar will be blocked during this time to minimize guest disturbance. Grand Bahia Principe Punta Cana will also receive a complete makeover for the lobby bar terrace. This will take place August 20-November 30, 2019. Due to the location of the work, no disturbance to guest rooms is expected and all services will continue as usual at the lobby bar.
