jan 9-23. second time to the Grand Bahia Punta Cana. Stayed again in Punta Cana side and the same block - close to the beach and dining area .Did not pay for safe this time and have to say have been lucky but have made sure that I had a lock for the suitcase . Lovely view of the resort, lovely sand, clear water. Have to say the seaweed was cleared every morning . The rooms were comfortable, bed linen and towels have been changed every day, housekeeping staff was very friendly. The mini bar restocked every day, ac worked properly. The buffett was very good, catered for all nationalities and never had to wait for the table. Staff all around were very nice, no communication issues, most speak good enough english. Yes, they do appreciate their tips so be generous and tip, the least you can do. Wake up early around 7 and place a towel on beach chairs to reserve. after breakfast is too late, that includes around the pools too.

We travelled as a family from January 8th- 17th and we had done some research on this resort and although they say there is a lot of walking we didn't have to do that much, just jump on the train! It is a very large resort but we found our way after a couple of days but when in doubt just hop on one of the trains and the drivers will tell you if they are going by your room block or to the beach etc. We found the staff to be very friendly and always had a smile on their faces. Our room was kept very clean and tidy and I had some birthday decorations as I was celebrating my birthday during our stay. They go out of their way to make it special for you. A big thank-you to the customer service by having us in the best room location possible. This made our whole trip! The only downside is that we aren't used to all the oils they cook in and found ourselves very bloated for half our trip, but the food was good we had no issues finding lots to eat. It would be great to have a breakfast buffet at the beach location though possible suggestion to make it easier for the beach located blocks to grab a quick bite in the morning instead of having to go all the way up to the front buffet. The pool was warm and the ocean even warmer, we mainly stayed around the pool area and soaked up the sun but did enjoy the long walks on the beach mid afternoon. We took a speed boat ride up and down the beach area and out to the sunken ship, I would recommend this, for a little cost we had a blast! There were no vendors on the beach so nothing to be bothered by but a ton of little shops further down about a 20 minute walk or so you could go to.
I would recommend this resort to family, singles, couples, as there is something for everyone!!! We will return for another visit for sure
One day we will be back

Just spent 2 weeks here and would certainly return in the future.
It is a vast complex and caters for an enormous amount of people (so if you prefer small & friendly this is not for you!). The main Buffet restaurant was large but always had a table and a terrific choice of good food & drinks including Bucks Fizz at breakfast.
Our only disappointment in the food department was our much anticipated visit to the Steak a la carte restaurant where we considered the quality and selection of food was nowhere near as good as our usual Buffet restaurant.
We could not fault the Bar Service and were well looked after by 3 lovely girls in particular, who were always happy, smiling and very attentive -- 101 out of 100 for them - namely Julia Ventura, Wendy Yitin & Mayra Pion. Our thanks to them for making our stay so enjoyable.
Reception Staff were always happy and willing to help.
The beach got very busy but we preferred to stay near one of the many pools although that did get noisy at times.
We would certainly recommend this Hotel to others if they dont mind a large but well managed complex.
Must mention Jose, our Thomson Rep who again was a credit to the company and was so helpful on a couple of occasions when help was needed.
