    Prima locatie en reasonable quality

    Nice beaches, clean property, lot of nice staff, enough food the whole day. You get around by trains they bring you from lobby to beach whole day. Everywhere there are disinfection gel bottles. Rooms getting older but ok and clean. Satellite TV, WIFI works Some issues to be fixed 1) staff lots of time busy with each other. 2) Food 90% almost cold. We waited for new servings to get it hot. 3) Restaurants to book for Europe poor except for teppanyaki restaurant. Difference in chef makes it. We do not like a loud environment so the screaming chef is passe. Food was good and warm)))). Al-a-cart skip because food was poor. Sushi you hardly can call sushi. 3) People occupying the beds from 07.00 in the morning with towels at the beach or pool. Later you only see chairs with towels and no people till later that day. I would put staff in place to control this from early in the morning and remove towels.... you do this once and problem is solved forever. 4) Loud music in pool and even sometimes at beaches is really disturbing. We are there to hear the sea and enjoy our rest. Beside that the kind of music is so individual that it is kind of not okay to make everybody listen to it. So we went far away from the noise. 5) Check in late was slow and we got not really informed how the system works. We had to find out ourselves. Would be nice to get short but useful directions and information. Even at the room you will find no info about the property. Average we where happy with our stay.

    First and last at this hotel

    After a long flight from England we arrived at our hotel .check in was slow but our room was ready .we had asked for a lower room and near to restaurants as my husband is disabled and can not climb stairs.there are two pools which were clean only complaint about that towels had to be collected from the main pool.food was terrible and repetitive.resturant staff not many spoke English and could not understand what you were speaking about always ready for you to tip them every time.the baggage boys were helpful and drove us to the pharmacy to get some cream for the mosquito bites.thenshows at night were very basic and lasted about an hour.while on my holiday we had problems with our room first the phone never worked while we were there reporting it every day .electric went off while we were using shower.lights on wall didn’t work.the cleaner for our room was poor and never finished room leaving bed not finished pillows scattered on bed settee next to window.bath didn’t look like it had been cleaned while we were there.we found this hotel is to large and not suitable for disabled people as things are to far apart and we had to borrow a wheel chair to push my husband around the site.we will not been visiting this hotel again.

    A Great Time

    We visited Mar. 3 - 10. Very easy and quick registration, freindly and efficient staff, lots of food to choose from, beautiful beach with lots of lounge chairs. Our room was spacious and clean. It is a very large resort but carts are always available to take you where you need to go.

    Amazing holiday

    Lovely destination amazing resort very friendly staff on the entertainment team, waiters very friendly but the staff showing to your tables quite miserable. Food very good standard in the buffet area. The ala carte restaurants not so good food cold and the soup in the Japanese restaurant made me vomit as soon as I left as so fatty and greasy. Would certainly recommend this hotel, pools lovely nice swim up bars friendly staff serving. I did find that the reception staff were very slow, had to keep going back for them to help with queries. The area to get a coffee in the middle of the main foyer never had cups and saucers so spent a lot of time waiting for staff to get some for you. Cost of massages were very expensive much more than in the UK so didnt have one which was a shame as I like a massage. Alcohol a little watered down. Evening entertainment very good, lots of salsa dancing to a live singer, then more entertainment in the village then the disco not well advertised though.

    Amazing vacation

    My visit to the Grand Bahia Principe Bavaro was incredible. So much better than any review I have seen or even what our travel agent described it as. The resort is absolutely breathe taking. It is so well maintained. The side walks are always well swept and they are washed everyday. Our room was lovely and located near the middle pools on the resort grounds. The rooms are large, they have great air conditioning, and fans. There are amazing balconies off the rooms as well. We stayed in the first floor and have no roach problems like some of these reviews saw. We didn’t even see any. Also if we did we wouldn’t even have minded since ya know they’re a common bug in the country. Definitely bring bug spray for mosquitos though, they aren’t aggressive but they will do what they are born to do. The beach was outstanding. You can walk for miles down the stretch to see the other resorts, you are not only stuck on the resort beach. There is plenty of shade for when you’ve had enough sun and there is a lot of space so you aren’t on top of other people. The food was outstanding! Being a cook at a Michelin restaurant in New York I’m normally pickier with food. But this food was incredible! I did not hate anything I ate. We dined at 3 of the restaurants, the Japanese, fish market, and Brazilian, and ate at the buffet the other 3 night and we were so happy. The only people who we noticed to be complaining about the food are those “snooty” people who eat at either apple bees every Friday and order the same damn thing, or those people who go out and buy a $400 steak and think they’re amazing for doing so. The fruit is obviously delicious and they have food that will appeal to all, stretching from pasta and pizza to hot dogs and hamburgers, to the delicious seafood and native foods of the DR. You will not be disappointed or hungry! You’re fed all hours of the day. The people who work at the resort are beyond lovely. We do not speak much Spanish but we could communicate well with everyone just speaking English. They go out of their way to communicate with you. They are they for you not just for themselves. The bartenders are lovely, the waiters are lovely and so is the management you see around. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone. It’s affordable and incredible and made our First time to punta Cana a memorable one. There are always activities and shows at night, you are never bored. If you want to be left alone and be in silence, you can avoid the activities easily and you don’t hear the noise. My family will absolutely be returning back.
