Fantastic Holiday

First of all a big thank you to all the Members of Staff of the Grand Bahia Principe Punta Cana, you made our Holiday one to remember. We had a fantstic time. Well what can i say the Resort was huge and well maintained which from morning till night, the members of Staff were worked really hard and were always smiling whilst trying to make your stay as memorable s possible. The Beach was lovely also well maintained . The Pools where very clean . And for the comfort they had little Trams all over the resort so if you didn't wanna walk you jumped on there . The main restaurant was fantastic the service was so friendly and welcoming, the food were great and i have never left hungry. The food choices would suit the most fussiest person. We never tried the A la Carte Restaurants as we enjoyed the main one so i cant make any comments. The Service in the Lobby was excellent and nothing was to much trouble at all. They also had some night time entertainment in there so if you wanted you could stop there or go over to the Theater and enjoy the other shows, then you had a choice. We took a day trip to go on the Outback Safari which i would strongly recommend doing. We had an excellent day out which not only was it educational but also funny as well the guide had u in stitches throughout the trip. (Booked through Thomsons) I would certainly recommend this hotel and for you to ignore the negatives about this resort and make your own mind up. We would certainly return one day. More>

Beautiful Location- go and enjoy

Bahia Principe- Punta Cana – the Atlantic Ocean- fantastic beach, great for long walks. A Beautiful location. Just returned from an intended two weeks stay at this huge resort with four family members. Weather was fantastic, hot and sunny. Be aware with young kids playing near the water. It can be rough and there is an undertow flow. The stretch of public beach, as expected, always have lots of people walking. The good thing is that you are not trying to walk around sun bathers/chairs, as the resorts keep their lounge chairs on their properties, for the most part. However, the lounge chairs, beach front area extend more back than along the beach front. So have to be at the beach early to get a good beach spot, but can still see the ocean from the “back”. Lots of man-made shade. The Bahia’s beachfront, continues to be the best, based on an on-going sea weed problem in the ocean. The only resort that we could see, has many workers raking the sand every morning, all day long and taking away the raked, seaweed in a truck at the end of the day. However, the seaweed is still in the water and you can still swim. Alternative, use the pools on the property. The Bahia is a huge resort that have a complimentary motorized train that takes guests around the resort on main roads. Buffets are available for all meals and for the specialty restaurants, recommend reservations and check dress code. If you have their ‘privilege club’ or higher membership, complimentary golf cart rides whenever needed is included, along with other amenities. Staff training needs to be reinforced on a regular basis, i.e. some days the fridge and bathroom were not restocked as expected, and had to bring it to the staff’s attention and still had to ask a second time. Service and food in the specialty restaurants were ok, I have experienced much better at other resorts in the Caribbean. Food was a bit of a disappointment, i.e. very salty meat a few nights. A wide variety of food each day with lots of choices and specialty theme nights. However, it seems to be repeated on a weekly basis. Specialty restaurants may be the recommended way to dine, to avoid food contamination from the buffets. As a 4* rating, the food was mediocre and evening entertainment was ok. Entertainment was repeated in the second week of our stay. Best thing to do if staying more than a week, purchase their cancellation insurance-no questions asked. However, will have to consider Air fare change fees. I was able to leave and return home sooner than originally booked and luckily had no added cost to change departure flight.. Relax and enjoy the sun..have a great vacation and work around their less than perfect services. More>

Hello We have stayed in this hotel for 15 nights. It was our honeymoon trip. This hotel was very good. We enjoyed it a lot. I wont talk about positive sides of the hotel and cant tell only one not so good part of it, its night disco. The music at the disco is always Spanish. Never DJ puts something other to mix, to shuffle. But if we talking about hotel its great. Here is the our last day blog: Day 15 and 16. The last hours were in the heat of the Dominican Republic. And the long way home just ahead. Our journey back was much faster than the way in Punta Cana itself, but it's still exhausting. From Punta Cana to London and from London to Riga. From early in the morning we were on the beach, even when the staff did not even have time to remove heaps of algae before the start waking up guests. But all the chairs were free. Shuttle us arrived about 13 local time. We went for dinner before departure. Because the fly had 9 hours. Yes, there are fed, but how can you compare a normal meal with the food on the plane. No, I personally like Samoletnaya food, but still did not stop for lunch. Departure was about 17 local and we were flying toward the night. Therefore, and arrived in London this morning flew at 9:00. And to my regret, I could not even sleep properly on the plane. Sat watched movies the whole flight. Because of what then suffer. In London, waiting for the flight was about 4 hours. So we decided to have breakfast and take a walk through the vast airport (compared to Riga it giant). Time flew by and not much we were sitting in an airplane flight to Riga. And after two and a half hours we are at home. The house in which managed to miss. I hope you've enjoyed this journey despite its compactness and innuendo in terms of content, and not in terms of the diversity of days. But it is such a Dominican. And if the answer to the question: Is this paradise, I will answer, Paradise where you feel good, and the people with whom you are traveling together, are no less important than the location to which you are traveling. These people can make your trip a memorable one. Enjoy watching. FIN. If you want to watch our trip find me on youtube as: Sergejs Pankovs I have filmed all our trip, hotel, pool, rooms, food just everything. Thank you More>

Great vacation

Booked this resort last minute for myself and two of my kids. Got upgraded to Esmarelda (luxury) section. Great food, amazing staff and wonderful overall experience. HUGE complex but broken into sections so never really have to travel far to eat, drink or swim. No negatives that I encountered. More>
