1st vacation with the baby at Grand Bahia principe

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!

After many trips to Punta Cana which has some gorgeous resorts amazing beaches we decided to give Samana a try.Smart move it is awesome,unlike Punta Cana which is basically flat for beach lovers like us we have enjoyed Punta Cana for many years. Samana is mountainous all around with spectacular scenic views from every angle. Grand Bahia Principe is always a great pick but this one is the cleanest,best food selection i.e. fresh oysters,clams,caviar,beff wellington,duck,rabbit etc. Completely different from any other resorts in the D.R. well worth the money looking forward to returning. Beach is small but great to swim,locals attend also but not a problem they stick to one side and are very respectful.We had a sea view room overlooking the cool elevator to the beach amazing vistas very quiet in the evenings. Staff were very polite and helpful speaking English not a problem. Yes there were a few cats and dogs patrolling the beach a couple of days they were gorgeous and did not bother us in any way. Overall an amazing place we will return.

Great stay

We just came back. Great stay, very clean hotel, food was excellent, staff was awesome. Overall, It was a pleasant stay. The beach is small, the sunbeds were small and half of them broken. What we did not like was then bunch of cats on the beach. They lie on the sunbeds and chase the people for food. One day one of them was sick. I went to reception to address this, nothing was done. There are also two dogs that wander around the resort. Very disappointing.

Great hotel if you don't expect it to be "luxury"

Great overall experience with some cons to be aware of. You'll have a great time here if you get a good price and if you're not too picky. Pros: - an incredibly beautiful location with amazing views almost from every spot of the resort - really nice rooms that are in good condition - nice and friendly hotel staff - well maintained grounds. The resort is on the hill and most guests prefer to stay at the main pool or at the beach however the pool at the very end of the resort is almost empty so you can have plenty of space just for yourself. The food really has its pros and cons at the same time. Really poor breakfast (cheap cheese, sausages and all kinds of eggs). Dinner and lunch was good enough but nothing sophisticated. It tastes delicious however made of simple ingredients and surprisingly small variety of seafood. Christmas dinner was gorgeous but this is something that is not what you will get here all the time. Cons: - The beach. It's small but cozy and has a nice views from it. Never had a problem to find a free sunbed. BUT you should not expect it to be like at other Caribbean....the water is green, the garbage floats from the village quite often and it has a high chance that you get a huge amount of seaweed. We've stayed here only for a week and it was not usable at our first 3 days as it was like a soup made of a seaweed and garbage. It was clean after that though. I'ts highly advisable to take a boat to Cayo Levantado where you get really beautiful white sand beach with turquoise water. You can get there just for 15 USD round trip. For us it was ok taking to account the difference in the price between these 2 hotels but if the beach is a main reason of coming here it's better to stay at another place. - Animation. It's literally dead. They do some "evening shows" which looks more like an amateur performance from a kindergarden. It was more or less OK only once at the Jackson show. The karaoke night is horrible. Daytime activities.... extremely boring.

Hotel secluded and the view is spectacular. Friendly and very helpful staff. Our Villa room was very roomy and clean with an amazing view. First hotel that I every stayed at where the manager made an effort everyday to be available to the guest. He was approachable, appreciative and took the time to ask for your comments and suggestions. Great nightly entertainment for both children and adults. Had a couple of problems in our room, electrical and water pressure. They were addressed immediately and fixed with a smile and a sincere apology. They served a wide variety of food and everyone was happy with the choices. The entertainment staff was amazing and really wanted everyone to have a good time. The waiters and waitresses were always friendly and polite and were willing to try to enhance their English skills. Loved the nature walk we took across the bridge , enjoyed a half day of Zip Lining and our half day of horseback riding to El Limon Falls. Would go back in a heartbeat.

As I mentioned on my earlier comments, this resort is awsome. It takes a few days to discover all the pools. The lower pool down stairs is the best place to hang out. Great place to eat. The beach is accessible by elevator. The manager of this resort is a hand on person. You will see him through the whole resort, Very well run.
