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!

Beatiful Resort didnt like beach

Beautiful Resort, Love Samana, All three A La Carte Restaurants very good and service impeccable. Main Buffet busy and at times hard to get service but like I said very busy. Rooms excellent and maid service perfect. We didnt do excursion but we did take in the Spa and it was a lovely experience. As per the Beach I would not return to this resort because of this. The beach is a Local Beach and there were locals all over some even coming up and harassing you. And on one day the main pool was full of locals nobody wearing the Grand Bahia bracelet, noticed the next day after a few complaints that they had security by the main elevator. As per the walk way that you see over to the private island. Yes beautiful walk, but its not part of the resort as per the pictures you see. Its all local area and when we walked over to other side we wernt welcomed as per local security.

bad reviews are made up or from other hotel employees

My wife and I just returned from 8 days at Principe Cayacoa. I must admit I really enjoy reading the bad reviews especially for this hotel. Everything was absolutely perfect with this hotel from the staff, food, beauty, rooms etc. No one can complain about this hotel and if they do it must be because they work for other hotels in Samana. Book this now and you will thank me.

We had a room on the 5th floor overlooking the pool and the view was gorgeous! Yes it wasnt quiet during the day but that didnt bother us at all. We welcomed all the music and the fun activities and the staff is just wonderful. I would like to say a big thank you to Manuel, Francisco, Blacky, Carlos, Amanda, Dario, Jonatthan, Victor, Marian, Vanessa, Jose, Luis and Eduar, who made our vacation week a blast. The food is delicious. every night a different theme. Monday: Spanish Tuesday: Italian Wednesday: Oriental Thursday: Gala Friday: Mexican Saturday: Dominican Sunday: International We LOVED the ITALIAN a la carte restaurant. Best seafood past adn pizza weve had and the antipasti and cold cuts are to die for. The beach is an elevator ride away and it was never too packed. We had the joy of having free kayaks and paddle boards to use whenever we wanted during the day . The walk on the bridge to nowhere was very pleasant. There are secuirty guards between the public and private beaches and make you feel safe. We did the excursion with air Canda vacations that takes you to thenational park and then to cayo levantado. It was a blast. You can also take a boat to this island every day which is someting I would have liked to have known before leaving. For a small fee of 20$ it takes you the whole morning to a crystal clear water beach. I would go back here in a heartbeat and Bring all my friends with me!

overall a great stay!

great resort! went with a large family around 30 of us and we were worried because it was small and only had 1 pool...and even tho they started with room mixups, they promptly corrected them as Grand Bahia Principe has made me expect in the past. It is not the most luxurious or fancy resort, but in the Dominican this is top shelf and honestly I had no problems with the cleanliness of the rooms or quality of the food. the trolley to the bottom because STAIRS thats why. soooo many stairs but if u got more time than energy, a trolly will take you. the trolly also takes you to the town until 2 am! overall a great stay as i am learning is a standard with Grand Bahia Principe. Blacky, Victor, Jordi, Jonhattan salud!!
