The hotel was absolutely beautiful with amazing views. We were disappointed in the beach and the fact that we had to get up super early to reserve chairs at the pool in order to have an umbrella foe the baby. The food at the buffet was repitious., but the restaurants were excellent. The entertainment for the kids was too late in the evening forthe llittle ones to really enjoy after a day at the pool or beach they were alsothe same exa ct thing every night and had only 15 to 30 minutes of the same music to dance too. Bernice, Carlos, Jose, Diana and veronica and Armando were amazing staff members. The only other disappointment was the weather May is their rainy season had we known we would have picked a different locatio . All in all I wouldrec immense this place to people. Had a great time with family?

The water is beautiful, but to get to the beach you need to take elevator that has scheduled to operate from 7 am, but for the week we stayed it never operated in the Morning on time, sometimes started at 8 am and once only after 9, This is unacceptable, because the purpose to go to this Hotel was a beautiful ocean, specially in the Morning. Another thing: no snack or fruit bar on the beach at all. Service in the buffet is good, but food needs a lot of improvement.

I am a travel agent and have been to many resorts. The Gran Bahia Principe Cayacoa is absolutely beautiful! The views are amazing! Our room was very nice - clean and did not have that musty smell. The food was good. We ate at the gourmet and seafood and both were good. We are not buffet people but the buffet was very good. The staff were all nice and spoke pretty good English. If you have difficulty walking I would recommend staying in the main building as there are a lot of stairs. I would highly recommend this resort!

We stayed at the GBPC for a week at the end of February 2019 with another couple. And we enjoyed every minute. The weather was great every day. The good: The people, the food, the view, the pool, the entertainment, and the beach are great. We enjoyed this smaller resort in Punta Cana - that was what also made it so great - more intimate. We also got to know some of the guests, and staff, especially the animation team, who are super. Any minor issues we had were resolved quickly. We would definitely go back again! The resort is also very close to the town of Samana, so it was a short walk to the town, but there is also a shuttle from the hotel every hour. While there were a few touristy shops to buy souvenirs, the townspeople went about their business without bothering tourists. The property was very clean. The beach was cleaned of minor debris several times every morning. While there are plenty of steps, there is also a shuttle provided by the hotel for those with mobility issues. The bad: Nothing that we can really complain about.

Nice resort, food is good, staff is friendly and helpful. Bed is terrible and pillows are small and flat. Some of the walkways are in need of repair. Gym is adequate. Beach is nice, generally quiet and clean.

Fantastic vacation

I saw this hotel while being elsewhere in Samana and was curious about the building... an elevator to get to the beach is at the least unusual, so we, as a couple, planned our vacation there this winter. We were not disappointed as everything went close to perfect! The scenery from the 5th floor is unbelievable. Our room was rather small (particularly the bathroom) but spotless clean. Food was fine, as good as you can expect from a DR resort. We saw two pools, very clean with enough chairs for all and one has a snack open all day long. I can't really talk about the activities and entertainment at night, we didn't assist. We spent our days walking in town close by (it is safe!), exploring the area, different beaches around and it was really fun. The beach at the hotel itself is very small too but the walk on the bridge to Nowhere is a must! It is safe to be on the bridge and the little beaches close by are quiet and very nice. My only negative point would be the amount of staircases to go from one area to the other such as the snack at the pool. If you have problem walking, are going with a cane, it is maybe not a place you'll enjoy to the full.

Amazing resort - staff needs improvement

This resort is PERFECT, the location is amazing and the beach/ocean/pools/rooms everything is super clean and very well maintained. The buffet is great, tons of options, much better than all 3 a-la-carte's. I'd give this place a 5-star if it wasn't for the following complaints: 1) The pools close early, 6:00pm everything outside is done. 2) The lobby bar closes at 11:00pm, you can only get drinks at the hotel's nightclub past that. - You get the vibe that they just want you to go to sleep at 11. The bigger issues... 3) Majority of the hotel staff do not speak English. Causes alot of communication issues when you're trying to order food/drinks/etc. and they get very rattled when you try to speak to them in English. 4) A lot of the staff members are rude, they give you nasty looks and have alot of attitude. Its makes the whole resort look bad, they act very hostile towards guests. They'll literally speak amongst eachother in Spanish and laugh...in your face. Regardless, it really is a beautiful resort, everything is perfect and this resort deserves to be recognized as a 5-star!!! Its too bad that their own staff is letting them down.

A very good resort - we had a great time.

We spent a week at this resort and had a great time. The resort and rooms were very clean. The room is average size and the standard "satellite" Tv with most channels in Spanish but we didn't go to watch TV. Lots of hot water in the shower and the tub did have water jets which were nice to use and relax in. The food was good and always fresh and hot on the buffet. We did go to the ala carte restaurants. The Italian was OK, the other 2 - French and seafood were better. We used the app to make the reservations and they got all screwed up but the concierge got everything fixed for us. The beach is not big so if you are a beach walker, this is not the resort for you. The water was pretty warm and no rocks in the water. The pools were clean and got warmer later in the day. They were cool in the morning. Staff was very friendly and amazingly fast clearing your used plates and making sure you had a full glass of water at the buffet. Overall, a very relaxing time which is exactly what we wanted.
