We came here for a mother-daughter trip, there were 9 of us and we had a great time! A big THANK YOU TO Oscar in the restaurant in the lobby....he was fabulous! We wanted fresh coconut and he delivered and he made us the best Mamosas! Yanesi at the pool bar made the best pool side drinks and asked every time if we alcohol or no she knew we had kids with us. She was so attentive and gave great customer service. And last but not least...our favorite poolside, everywhere entertainment Juan, aka Sexy Papi! His energy was amazing from morning to night. Roberto is so sweet...he brought our moms coconuts in the after working the Congo coconut dance line. Amazing customer service everywhere!

First of all a shout out to all of the hard working people at the resort!! We especially connected with Luz at the front desk, Raul at the pool bar and Alejandro transport driver and bellman. There were many others in the restaurant staff as well like Luis and Mercedes. And last but not least the housekeeping staff kept our room exceptionally clean. Great job! The resort itself is on the top of a hill with great views and an interesting elevator to the beach. Grounds and facilities are kept up well. The entertainment is a bit lacking and the quaint little town of Samaná is filled with aggressive vendors that will not leave you alone!! Not fun at all. Overall a nice experience and we would recommend during whale season in December- January timeframe

Wonderful stay at Grand Bahia Principe - Cayacoa

I'm a frequent traveler (business & pleasure) and I enjoy writing my trip reviews so that I can provide my honest opinion about the places I travel and visit. In my opinion, Trip-Advisor is definitively one of the social network and media that I find very useful in helping me plan and chose wisely when I prepare for my next trip/vacation. This is my 1st time in Samana, Dominican Republic. It is approximately a 45 minute drive from the airport. We stayed at the Grand Bahia Principe - Cayacoa from September 2-9, 2018. As always, I will be as honest as I possibly can in my review of the Grand Bahia Principe - Cayacoa. Check-In: To my surprise, it took approximately 15 minutes or less to check-in and off to our room so we can enjoy the rest of the day on the beach or by the pool. The staff of 4 were ready and prepared to receive the guests. Refreshment drink was served which was quite tasty, I may add. Room : 315 - What a view, spectacular ! View of bay, pool and beach Very clean and spacious. No signs of mildew or misty smell anywhere in the hotel. Safe, Shower, TV and A/C working accordingly. Beds/mattress were good ! Beach : The beach is actually a bay, not too long Very clean, lots of chairs and sun huts (palapas). No problem getting one at any time of the day. Some seaweed residue early morining but crew out cleaning so we can enjoy the beach. Restaurants : They have 3 a la cartes restaurants (Italian, French, and Seafood). We tried all three restaurants and the food is very good and I highly recommend you try them. We ate at the Italian restaurant twice ! Waiters and staff are all friendly in a very relaxed dining ambiance. Main Buffets : Clean spacious and big enough to accommodate the hotel capacity. Food was very good and fresh ! Lots to chose from, such as Fish, Beef, Pork, Lamb, Chicken, etc.... You will not starve ! Hotel & Bar Staff : Very friendly and eager to help in anyway. With a small tip bartenders remember you and your next drink will be even better ! Swimming pool and Hotel grounds : The hotel grounds and pool were continuosly being cleaned. The bathrooms were clean and had a very nice scent when you walked in In my opinion one of the cleanest (if not the cleanest) hotel I've been to. Entertainment Staff : The entertainment staff were nice and friendly. They tried real hard to get people to participate in activities and games during the day and in the evening shows. The funniest was Lewis, I'll never forget that laugh ! Just a pleasent and funny individual. He will definitely put a smile on your face. Conclusion : In my opinion, this resort is very good and affordable and will meet all of your vacation needs. The hotel staff and management work real hard in keeping the resort extremely clean. The food is very good and satisfies many different pallets. Simply put, you will not starve at this place ! If you are looking for quality and plenty of rest & relaxation, you'll definitely get it here. Highly recommend and will be going back in the near future !

My Husband and I have recently returned from your beautiful hotel and we felt compelled to write this review. We are a mature couple in our 50’s who are well travelled and we can honestly state that this hotel was the best we have ever had the privilege to stay in. The hotel is immaculate with excellent facilities in a beautiful location. Our room, a junior suite - room 3135, was beautifully furnished with everything we could need. It was cleaned and re- stocked to a very high standard every day. The views from our balcony across the bay were fantastic. Definitely worth paying the small fee to upgrade to these junior suites. The pools were cleaned on a daily basis, the grounds were beautiful and were also maintained to a very high standard by the very hard working staff who never failed to wish us a good day. The pool bar was a hoot and Raul made the best Tom Collins in the hotel! Lewis ( AKA Lewis Hamilton) from the animation team greeted us every day with a sunny smile and information about upcoming events - He even taught us how to dance! The buffet restaurant was outstanding, serving an amazing array of high quality food which was cooked to perfection. The waiters and waitresses were incredibly friendly and helpful and always took care of our needs with a smile on their face.( Brenda and Amanda having the biggest smiles of all😀. ) The French, Italian and Fish restaurants which could be booked once per week were gastronomical and provided excellent food with impeccable service. Thank you Victor for your ongoing charm. The bar staff in the lobby bar were very friendly and served their customers with confidence, ( A huge thanks to Dario and Victor in the lounge bar for your continued service with a smile!) The seafood snack bar staff, Esmeralyn and Yunior made our holiday complete and cared for us every day, serving us delicious food and fantastic cocktails. Muchos Gracias Mon Amigos! My husband and I had a holiday of a lifetime and can not thank the hotel and their wonderful staff enough for caring for us over the last two weeks. We were sad to leave and hope to return with our family in the future. We highly recommend booking this hotel. It is second to none in an amazing location.( a fair distance from the airport; 3.5 hours, but well worth the travel if you want an extra special holiday)

Nice time. Thank you.

We visited this resort at the end of August, 2018. Amazing nature and fantastic landscape. It is a paradise for photographers! We knocked off our feet how beautiful the place. The food is simple in buffet, nothing fancy. I attached few images of that food at my review to see it. Although, our visits at restaurants worth it. Not many persons among staff speak English. They does not even try to learn it, so we could interact by smiles.
