Very disappointed
Thu Jul 14 13:45:37 EDT 2016
This was our second time staying at a Bahia Principe hotel (our first was in punta cana) and we were highly disappointed in the service. We are avid travelers especially in the Dominican Republic and couldnt believe how a hotel so large with such a reputation could lack in the service department. The highlight of our trip was we were only in the hotel for 3 days. So heres the break down of our stay: 1. The room was mediocre, and they use the AC boxes, which means you have to leave a key in the box in order for the AC to kick on. The fan function of the AC stays on even if the key is not in but for cooler air the key needs to be in the box. This wouldnt be an issue if our box worked. Our box was broken and when they came to fix it the gentleman told us it was broken we would have to wait until the morning to have it replaced. Noone ever came and since all we did was shower and sleep in the room we didnt bother harrassing them to fix it. Towels seemed to be a hot commidity as they gave just enough to get you through a shower and face wash. when we asked for more the house keepers told us they were all out. (Our room was also in one of the last buildings by the beach so we were last for everything it seemed). I will say the pillows and sheets were amazing, and the view from the room was impecable it literally over looks onto the beach. 2. The pool was large and very spacious. Down side it has only one bar, and its on the opposite side of the larger steps. Chairs were again another hot commodity it was almost impossible to get a chair forget about getting an umbrella. Get there early to catch 1. 3. The food/restuarants- Now here was where I have the biggest disappointment. The food wasnt horrible, but at the same time wont knock your socks off. I can surely tell you I didnt get sick. We really only at the buffet and snack bar since we were there for such a short time. Beware of the mosquitos theyre all over the snack bar. The snack bar was just that for snacks and if you get there about an hr or so to closing you really wont find much. It serves burgers hot dogs nachos fried food pizza some fruit etc. The buffet was just a disaster all around and for all three meal times. They were either extremely slow or just dont prepare correctly before meal time because the food trays would empty out almost as soon as they opened and it wouldnt even be crowded enough for it to happen so soon. The waiters barely take notice in you, and almost seem irritated when you ask for something. I'll start with breakfast the food was ok there seemed to be a decent selection of items to choose from, if you enjoy omelettes, ahve someone wait in line while you grab everyting else because the lines are ridiculous. If your a coffee person i suggest you sit and wait for someone to come fill your cup before you get your food, because its likely you'll finish eating before your cup gets filled. Lunch and dinner were just as bad, during lunch and dinner the entire family would typically get together and eat. We were a larger party (8) at this point which is little understable for service to be slighlty slower but it was extremely slower, almost non existent. We settled pretty much every night with drinking just water because no one would come back to check on us. Our second night there literally no one checked on us and there were only 4 times in our section occupied we piled 10 plates in the middle of the table and they sat there for almost 30 minutes before a supervisor came over to clean them up. No apologies or anything he just shook his head cleaned them up and walked away. After each meal we would leave 2 or 3 dollars on the table, one night one of the girls seemed surprised to see money being left, either they werent accustomed to it or they realized how poorly they serviced us and were surprised. 4. the shows- we didnt really make it to any of the night shows in the theater and from our previous experiences Bahia principes shows are generally good but i cant speak for this location. They would have live singing after the shows which was decent. 5. the overnight snack bar was another disappointment it only service sandwiches hotdogs and burgers. 6. the casino- was insanly small but not to many people go so if you like to play go for it. 7. the beach- for being a beach seemed quite small. they did place a barrier to break the waves and the water temperature was comfortable it was a nice 20 or so steps from the room which was great. Overall the apperance of the hotel was nice, the AC in the general areas is scarce or limited, the lobby has none the buffet had our first night only, the snack bar has none, and the casino had the most comfortable one. Service needs major improvement, the only place we recieved decent service was at reception. A MUST is to bring bug repleant theyre EVERYWHERE! and im not kidding. Especially with all the virus and diseases going around because of mosquitos its really not worth. Recommendation if youre planning on being there for more than 4 nights try finding another resort there are plently of better quality resorts in the area. More>

After spending a week here arriving back yesterday. On arrival the hotel looks a 5 star, until you stay here you realise it isn't. We had ripped mattress cover on our bed. Phone in room didn't work. Shower attachment was broken in room. Noisy air conditioner. Complained to staff on arrival about shower and phone was promised to be repaired but never was. Food was well below standard. Restaurant advised various theme nights but it was the same food every night. On entering the restaurant ther was a girl standing at the entrance with a bottle of hand wash who didn't care or not if you washed your hands. 99 per cent of the waiters couldn't understand English, not even the basic Coke or lemonade. On most occasions you could eat your whole meal before being approached for a drink. The wi fi, you got an hour a day that you could only use in the lobby. You could pay for a week which worked out at £50 per device. The hotel was off the road, as all the hotels were, a good 2 minute drive down a side road until you came to the hotel. The travel rep was very pushy, most trips were at least £100 each, the shopping trip the cheapest which was £60 each. One night there was supposed to be a beach party from nine to eleven. We went down the beach at 9 30. The chairs on the beach were arranged as if something was going to happen, there were some people on the beach too waiting we waited till 10. No member of staff was on the beach. Went to reception and was told that the party was cancelled, bearing in mind there was still no member of staff on the beach to tell anyone or no notice. In fact it was still advised in the lobby. More>

Great holiday

Just got back from the Grand Bahia Principe after 14 nights stay. Have to say we had a great holiday and now a bit sad to be back home. The hotel was good, any issues we had got sorted such as beech towels missing on arrival and safe breaking down mid holiday all got sorted pretty quickly. I would say after staying at a Bahia in Mexico a couple of years ago that this Bahia is still probably learning to meet the chains expected standards but you can see progress being made. The little things missing were small like no slippers or bathrobes ( not something that bothered me really but more so the wife ). The staff at the hotel were always friendly and polite. Occasionally the language barrier made things a bit awkward now again but google translate soon helped that one 👍. The pool area was good and lively and always had a good atmosphere plus quiet time in the morning to relax. My one complaint is nothing to do with hotel but the unreliability of our Thompson rep who was hard to find a lot of the time despite being told that he was about between 8-4pm everyday. It turns out Monday is his day off which is fine, just tell us that in the welcome meeting! We did 3 trips 2 were amazing, Saona island and Catilina island and the other thanks to some miss leading sales talk from the Thompson rep was a bit disappointing this was the safari tour which boasted an amazing water fall that when on the trip turns out you only spend 30 mins there. Bus/van was uncomfortable and considering this is where you spend most of the day was not impressed. Back to the hotel the grounds are amazing , clean and always being cleaned. The staff never stopped cleaning and gardening. All in all the holiday was great and I would recommend this hotel and I would go back again. We also want to thank Oscar from the buffet restaurant who always looked after us and went that extra mile every time we went in. Good times had. More>
