1st vacation with the baby at Grand Bahia principe
May 28 2014
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!

This trip was one of the worst trips I have ever been on. I would never recommend the Bahia Principe and I am extremely disappointed in Apple as well!

Best wedding ever

We had chosen this resort for our destination wedding from all the great reviews and pictures we have seen online . It was the best decision we ever made! We got to the resort on March 28 at 9:30 PM as a group of 30 guests . The check in process was very slow . after check in , we made it to the buffet for a last minute dinner, the variety of food was good and the quality was great as well . after dinner we went to our rooms . Spacious room and very clean . We had a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us ! We then went to the lobby bar only to realize they close at 11 Pm which was a bit disappointing , but the disco bar was open , so not bad over all . The drinks are decent but not the greatest i have to mention . We had a meeting with sharlin montilla the wedding coordinator . she was amazing at her job and took all the stress from our shoulders . She helped us figure out all the final details of the wedding and confirming all the details that we had discuss in the last few months with her via email . From there we went to enjoy the day at the beautiful beach with amazing views . On April 2nd, after 3 days of having fun and enjoying the resort, we had our big day. The weather was great and everything was set up for us exactly how we wanted it . Sharlin and her crew did an amazing job making our special day even more special . I have to mention the photographer Braulin was great as well and he did an amazing job with the pictures . The reception was one to remember and the ceremony was as we dreamed it would be . The food was amazing, the decoration were gorgeous and the cake was beautiful and delicious . We had an open bar as well at the venue and they even provide us with the alcohol that was not part of our package. Btw we had the emerald package which was their best package and it was worth every penny . I have to mention that everyday we received something special in our room as a wedding gift which was really nice . over all the hotel has amazing views and great location. Sometimes language barrier is an issue but you can manage . We would definitely go back to this resort and recommend it 100% !

Great resort with caring staff

My friend and I are just returning from Cayacoa and I want to express my gratitude to the staff at this resort. Nobody wants to get sick on vacation but when I did the staff here couldn’t have been better. They arranged everything with the doctor, had the shuttle bring me and the driver escort me right to the door. Staff greeted me upon returning to ensure I was ok and checked in on me the next day. Our maid Angelina was amazing and made sure I had all the things I needed to be comfortable. Truly thank you. This resort is beyond beautiful and we had a great 10 days here. The entertainment staff work hard to make sure everyone is having the best time. The grounds are beautiful and the resort very clean. The buffet can be busy during peak times but staff keep things flowing. Yocasta was our waitress pretty much every day and she was always so kind. Thank you Grand Bahia Principe Cayacoa you truly outdid yourself!

Breathtaking Scenery at GBP Cayacoa in Samana!

Stayed at GBP Cayacoa late March/early April...The location of the hotel is splendid, panorama is breathtaking...Villa assigned when choosing Royal Golden was on first floor right in front of a bay...Beautiful! The hotel is well maintained, staff is cordial, buffet was great and offered on some nights sushi, crab legs and shrimps..The French restaurant (Orchidea) was the one we enjoyed most (surf and turf)...The shows on the outdoor terrace are ok...Some resorts have outdoor auditoriums and more elaborate shows/entertainment...If you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy the scenery, this is it...The excursions that we booked to El Limon waterfall and Rincon Beach (by buggy) were well worth it...Be wary of some volunteers who accompany you on your horse as you head to the waterfall...They will try to negotiate large tips with you but this is not something Grand Bahia Principe can control. Will definitely try this hotel chain again!

Great hotel, good personnel, clean rooms and great fresh food

We been there for 14 days and i cannot say a bad thing about it. We took one of the villas which was in an all-in superior suite concept. The food was very fresh and just great. They offer the basic buffet with additional daily typically country based recepies : spanish night, mexican, french, italian, seefood etc. Hotel personnel are very friendly and the animators are really talented, with Lewis at the top of the bunch. Coming to the rooms they are very clean and they get a good daily cleanage as well. You can rent a car and visit other place which are very nearby, renting a car costs about 60USD and you can visit most places for free, paid visits are (in my eyes) a bit expensive, but it pays off to do it yourself. Ask the staff for some recommendations and you find the best places in no time. Beach is good with plenty of space. During the weekend locals come and take a swim in the oceans as well, they are very friendly. All by all a very good holiday !

Good in a lot of ways.....

Well....this resort has probably one of best scenery I have seen in the Caribbean.....beach is nice.....but small only issue there. Food is will never starve....not a wow factor....but still good. Rooms are nice....but had a issue with it in a way....came as single people.....our whole group was given a large king doubles.....was awkward for a few days but just dealt with no real issue....fridge was always stocked daily with the basics..... This is not really a party resort....but you can make your own party....great groups from the Maritimes....made the stay so much better.
