Need to improve on the customer service part

It was a very nice place. The service need to improve. Customer service have a attitude if you ask for something. The waitress on the Buffet are not very friendly. The restaurants are very good I love the food and the service there was very good. Not a lot of staff but it was decent. The best service was at the Italian Cappricio everyone was very nice and polite Rafael was very nice, polite, friendly and professional. We had a great time there.

Good trip for the most part.

The person who stood out the most on our trip to Grand Bahia Principe Turquesa was Jenifer M. She went above and beyond. Very genuine, sweet girl. Awesome pool and swim up bar. Refrigerators in the room could've been colder.very dark rooms also.

Great getaway

We stayed at Turquesa for 4 days and it was overall a great experience. For the price, we felt it was totally worth it. Cheapcaribbean.com took care of everything including the travel to and from the airport and we had no issues. The dining options were very limited, you really only have one buffet hall to eat at unless you schedule other restaurants at the resort but you have to do that ahead of time because things fill up- but we felt the food at the buffet was pretty good despite that. We loved the pool, it wasn't ever crowded or hard to get service at the bar. The beach is about a 15-20 minute walk to the other side of the resort but its a nice walk if you don't care and they also have golf carts that can give you a ride to get there in 5 minutes. If you realize you're not going to a luxury, 5 star resort, you will enjoy your time at Turquesa and the staff are very nice as well!

Grand Bahia Principe Turquesa

We book trips through CheapCaribbean often. We take these beach trips at leaast 2-3 times a year. I ALWAYS book Ocean View room. That is our sole requirement really...we want to look at the Beach and walk right out to the beach and relax. On my reservations it states those exact words..."Ocean View Room". There is NO SUCH THING at the entire Grand Bahia Principe- not just the Turquesa portion of it. But not only that, the Turquesa is a an 8 minute tram ride to the beach...which you have to wait on to arrive! Driving in and unloading we knew this was not what we normally get. We can tell the beach is no where near- so we begin the conversation...the lady laughs and says "no, they just say that" when talking about ocean view room. We ask for the manager and we do get upgraded to the other part of the resort for about $600 - the "luxury" part is at least next to the beach. But even there, glass doors don't lock, there is coffee in the coffee pot, the water in the fridge had been opened, beds are rock hard, tile falling off edge of the pool in chunks, bathrooms at pool overflowing, my view was of the other people sitting on their balcony a few feet away. They did move us to another room the next day overlooking the pool. The do not disturb room signs simply means knock louder to ensure no one is there when you enter. The staff do not speak English well and could really care less about helping you...so much so that Brylin at the front desk said he was helping and left - never to return. Just said he would be back...so much vacation time wasted. After we were settled we worked hard at trying to forget about it and enjoy. The beach was nice but croweded and small. I like to snorkel but there were no fish around and oddly no birds on the beach...guess because there are no small fish to feed on. The swim area is very small and rough because they allow boats so close and they are running constantly. Food was good.If we went again-which we won't- I would choose the Ambar. I attached a layout of the resort for anyone interested. Going back to having a travel agent book trips for us.

What's to Love

It's all-inclusive, family-friendly beach blast. No unhappy beachers here.

Dropping the youngsters at the kids' spa while you indulge in a much-needed hot stone massage.

Being handed a welcome cocktail when you arrive - throw it back and have another.

Hittin' the waves via kayak, catamaran or paddle surfing. Beach time is the best time.

 

What We'd Change

The grounds hosting the multiple Grand Bahia resorts can be noisy, but Turquesa is the smallest of them and offers some relative quiet.

 

Why You Should Go

It's 25 minutes from the airport - a brisk trip to your tropical nirvana.

You have access to everything (except buffets) at Grand Bahia Principe Punta Cana and Bavaro. Turquesa is the calmest during the day.

There's an ahh-some children's water park. Your squirts will be tickled pink.

The Family Master Suite has two interconnected rooms. Relax, you can trust the kiddos.
