Cannot say enough! This was our very first visit. We were there during May break. Good weather and exceptional service. We loved this place. We were greeted very warmly with a lovely drink, and had our bags taken to our room promptly. Staff from reception to housecleaning to gardeners were very friendly, always smiling and could not do enough for you. The beach is one of the best. The food was the best I’ve had in all of Dominican. The buffet was plentiful and many many options. The fish was never ending....delicious! Fresh pasta, seafood, eggs cooked to your liking and delicious desserts. The Al a Carte restaurants were fantastic! The soups were delicious! We met a lot of nice people and even met a couple who have been to Bahia over 25 times!!! Strongly recommend staying here. We will definitely go back
We had a good experience despite all the issues with the Corona Virus going on. They did a great job dealing with the constant reduction of guests. The pool and beach areas were in great condition. The staff was friendly and helpful.
We stayed here during the world shut down from Covid-19. We still had excellent service despite the reduced staff because of the reduced amount of guests. They did a very good job with all the others things going on because of the Corona Virus.
My husband, daughter, 9, my bestfriend, her son, 12, and myself stayed at BP Grand Punta Cana March 11 - 18. We had a great time, resort was very clean, almost no line ups, food was good and plentiful, and staff were friendly. There was always beach chairs available on beach and at pools. Our air conditioner leaked one night while sleeping, I put a towel on the floor to soak up the water then went for breakfast, with the intention of stopping at reception to let them know about the problem after eating. When my girlfriend showed up at breakfast telling me the repair man was already there fixing the problem. Maid service had called in the problem. I was shocked, I have been travelling to the DR for almost 20 years and never had a room problem resolved without going to reception myself. We also had a problem getting into our room one evening before dinner. I called reception from my friends room. They told me they would send a technician. I had a little panic as it was only 45 mins until our dinner reservations and we had to get showered... low and behold the technician was there in less then 10 mins. Again, I was blown away, I was sure it was going to be a half hour wait. Before our trip I was worried that the resort was to big to get good service, but this certainly wasn't the case for us, I would recommend this resort to anyone going on a family vacation.
Some good, some bad ......
We were there the week of March 11-18 and in that time the COVID-19 virus changed the world outside! Here is a review of our stay putting aside the issues that the world was experiencing. Check-in was slow and we had to leave our luggage at the front for 3 hours before our room was ready. Room as clean and that's all we could ask for. It was maintained daily with no issues. Restocking of fridge was done occassionally but if you call room service, they will run you down some warm beer! Resort is huge! You have to take a trolly from the the front to the back where the main pool/beach is. Walking in that heat can be a bit much so having it was nice. The trolly comes frequently so not an issue. Beverages were available at all bars and not an issue. Food at the buffet was great. Something for everyone. Displayed nicely and plenty to be had. The table service for coffee/tea in the morning was not so good. Nobody came and if you did get someone, they didn't speak English, would leave like they understood and maybe come back with an order by the time you were done your meal. They were usually very good about bringing water though. Beach is absolutely beautiful and there are lots of chairs/huts but you have to get there early (before 8) to towel your chair for the day even though there are signs everywhere saying you can't do that. Otherwise, you are out of luck! Same with main pool. Al la cart dinner at the Garden Grill was our parties favourite. Greek was very nice too. The beach lunch buffet was also very good and beautiful to sit at for lunch. Now for the "bad" Language - unless you speak French or Spanish you are SOL. As soon as they heard English you got no service/help/assistance of any kind. A lot of shoulder shrugging. The entire group felt this way. We met a Spanish person who sat with us for a meal and the service we got with her with us totally changed! The front office staff are not consistent with what they tell you and they make it seem like it is language barrier but they spoke it perfectly when we checked in. One of our group won a bottle of rum at a bingo game and were told to claim it at the Bavero lobby between 8-10 at night. When we claimed it, nobody seemed to understand or know what we were talking about. Then, very odd behaviour after dealing with the person in charge who did know (left the area, came back, went to a room, in and out of that room etc) and then suddenly a different lady shows up and hands us a t-shirt while holding a bottle of rum and said we only won a t-shirt. Funny thing she could speak English then and tell us the rum winning was for "older" games. We tried to say that wasn't right but she wouldn't budge. We all suspected she walked away with the bottle while handing us a worker shirt as our prize! The biggest disturbing behaviour was that of the younger males working on the resort. The two teenagers (accompanied by adults) with us experienced a lot of staring and a few rude unwanted gestures. We couldn't let them go anywhere on their own during the day it was that bad. With so many people there, it was hard to believe they spent their day doing this to all of the young ladies. Beach - you are constantly being approached by individuals trying to sell you an outing. There are also people walking around with parrots and a monkey and they casually come up and put it on you, encourage you to take pictures and then get angry and demand money from you for the pictures. And LOTS of money was being requested. The resort security staff do nothing to stop this. I think they are in on it. Al la carte dinner at the Japanese restaurant - we booked the "show" and what a show it was. Before the restaurant opened, there were some sickly looking cats playing in front of it. When the chef got cooking, he pulled out the bins of meat (salmon, chicken, shrimp) and then a "Dominican specialty" - after asking us all if we knew what it was he said CAT! And then he started laughing. It was clearly beef but that comment set the tone for the rest of the meal. The server working with the chef meowed every time he came around. Once our meal was done, we were rushed out to the main restaurant and served the dessert. This server was very attentive and happy to be with us for the 15 minutes during dessert. Tipping - we tipped when service was good. But only when it was good so not that often! It's not really expected either unless they are the luggage handlers. The travel office rarely had staff there unless it was after the information session and they were booking outings. Having been at the Bahia in Jamaica for comparison, this resort we decided we would not come back to. Jamaica was the winner hands down. With the COVID-19 issue happening, as the week progressed we saw fewer and fewer guests and staff. And rightly so. The review above is not reflective of the issues the world was experiencing. I think what we experienced happens regardless. Never so happy to return to Canada!! Will miss the sun and beach in Punta Cana but that is about it! PS - mosquitoes are really bad at night so take some good bug spray!
