Arrival at the hotel was organised and quick. Bags delivered to the room by Van leaving us free to explore. It is 10 USD per day for the safe payable on arrival. Our room on arrival was clean and ready, unfortunately our balcony doors were broken and wouldn't lock. To give the hotel credit they were fixed within a couple of hours with a follow up phone call later to check it was OK. The main buffet area is clean. The staff are somewhat hit and miss. It is unclear at breakfast and evening meal whether they will bring you tea water etc. Sometimes they will sometimes help yourself. The food in the buffet over 10 days was monotonous. We went to all the restaurants which i can only says was a rotation of the food in the buffet in the main. My recommendation in the restaurants is to order off the menu not eat from the buffet selections. Never in my life have I bitten into sushi to find melon in the middle! Lobby bar is a joke. Considering they aren't taking money why does it take half an hour to get a white wine or beer? The bar staff are chatting, on mobiles and disinterested. On a further note the bar stunk (warm sick smell) of dirty drip trays, they clearly haven't moved the fridges in a long while to clean underneath. There is a comprehensive list of drinks apparently available but half of it when requested I was told we are getting that tomorrow every time. Wine undrinkable, spirits worse. Pool bar full of flies. Beach bar attentive staff and better service. Drinks marginally better as at least g&t had lime in it. Pool area - no problem getting beds however the competing music from the bar and entertainment was irritating. The bar end of the pool was dirty, the filters were higher than the water so were not doing anything. The beach was lovely, peaceful and clean. Plenty of beds available. The staff work hard to keep it free of seaweed etc. As per all reviews the sea is not blue I knew this beforehand so no complaints. Gym my parter used the gym and and found Diony helpful although the equipment limited. Outside the main buffet restaurant is the touts trying to sell you other bahia resorts and further visits my partner got tricked into signing up for a meeting to view other properties. When he realised he decided not to go. Francisco Leonardo guilt tripped and harangued him for days telling him he had let him down and had children to feed etc. AWFUL awkward and uncomfortable for us every day after. Entertainment - awful and for some reason the hotel has an obsession with Michael Jackson. Not only is one night every week dedicated to him but they play his music all the time everywhere. Yoel was a lovely waiter thank you. On the whole this is a clean hotel, food plentiful although boring, staff variable. We won't be back as had better recommendations. TIP - The ground floor rooms flood when it rains. More>

A beautiful stay minus 1.

The resort is lovely. The grounds, pools, beach, common areas splendid. We had a relaxing, fun and interesting stay. The rooms were clean, spacious and well furnished and supplied. The a la cartes and buffet were great. We were six ladies and had booked 3 double rooms. We checked in together and when we arrived at our rooms one of them only had one bed. One of the ladies had a medical condition that made it very inconvenient to sleep in the same bad as someone else. When the ladies given that room went to ask for a change they were given a different room that must have been on maintenance because it had a very powerful musty smell. It was also in a completely different building than their friends. When they told the front desk manager that they could not stay in that room either he became very upset and it was extremely uncomfortable and frustrating. They were told they would have to wait two days for the room that was requested. We understand that these things happen but if we had been told the circumstances right at check in another two ladies from the group could have taken the room. Also the attitude of the manager was very poor. This gave us a very bad initial experience. Luckily the rest of the trip helped put the incident behind us. Finally, the air canada rep was impossible to meet up with. At the airport (Sunday) we were told to meet him on Monday and by then we had already missed 2 days of possible excursions. When we did go to meet him, he came and left before the time we were given to be at the lobby. More>

Good and bad points!!

I am well travelled in the Dominican so will give an honest opinion of the hotel and surroundings. Positives Room-clean and comfortable. Tv good selection of channels. Bed comfortable. Air conditioning very noisy. Swimming pool clean with excellent bar service. Food we found very good but only ate in buffet as we were happy with the selections which were beautifully presented. Entertainment was adequate but nothing different to any other hotels in DR. Service in restaurants and pool area excellent. Negatives Lobby bar- service here was terrible, staff ignorant and unless you were constantly tipping them, they would avoid any eye contact!! We gave up after a few nights so therefore this spoiled our evenings and we tended to remain in restaurants where service was exceptional and they didn't expect tips all the time!! Beach is in a sheltered bay so if you expect the lovely Dominican breeze off the sea you will be disappointed!! Very very hot and humid!! Also no tide so the water is murky and I found it unpleasant to cool off in!! More>

Excellent Hospitality!

The staff at Bahia Principe were more than excellent! They treated us like family and took really good care of us. I had laughed a lot, ate a lot, and drank a lot! I will be back again. Hector at the front desk was especially sweet and did an excellent job! More>

Well kept grounds

This was our first trip to the Dominican. We flew into Punta Cana--didn't realize that we would have at least an hour drive to the resort. Check in was fast and efficient; room was adequate--standard motel room. We struggled with the food; we are not picky eaters but I actually lost five pounds during the week I was there. Found breakfast to be the best part of the day. The other buffets were okay . . . . was not impressed by the a la carte restaurants either. Pool was awesome and the pool bar was efficient. Bar in lobby was ineffective . . . .too long between service--up to 45 minutes at times. Plenty of staff, but no hurry to serve the clientele. Many frustrations from other guests expressed nightly. We did feel at a loss because we speak no Spanish and there was little English spoken by the staff; the same for the off resort excursions we participated in; uncomfortable. For the price of our vacation, we were pleased overall. The five star rating is rather misleading--average at best, but we enjoyed our stay. More>
