Language barrier and sand fleas
Miramichier56, Miramichi, NB

First.....the food at the buffet and the staff there were incredible. The Japanese Restaurant and the Garden Grill were also excellent. The beach is very small as it has eroded and has too many chairs for the size of the beach. Very difficult to get chairs at the beach or the pool. This place can accommodate 10000 people as it is connected to more resorts. My biggest complaint is trying to communicate with the staff in the Royal Golden Section. We could have went anywhere to celebrate a big milestone birthday but this place was recommended by our travel agent. We had put in requests before we went but none of them were honoured. I tried booking a restaurant for the day of the big birthday but nothing. I could not make out what the female staff member was saying and she was getting very agitated with me. I asked her to please be kind as we had just arrived and we were just getting settled. She promised that there would be balloons in the room the day of the birthday but nothing. I had booked massages on that day as well but when we arrived no reservations. We asked for a second floor room as we were dealing with sand fleas before we even reached the beach or pool....definitely in the room. A male staff member treated us poorly as well. So these negatives really outweighed the positives. Would not recommend.

Be Aware! Privilege Club Scam. Lying Excursion Staff

My wife and I went on a last minute trip to this resort as a late honeymoon. We are both quite new to the travel scene and come from a small town. A place where trust is common. Do not trust anyone here. We arrived early and could not check in for another three hours. Thus, we headed to the beach. We quickly got pulled over by a staff member that started giving us a hard time about not having a bracelet... Why hadn’t they supplied us with a bracelet on arrival? We got to our rooms and they were nice... Several problems. A toilet that wouldn’t flush properly. A shower drain plate that wouldn’t stay put. A bathroom humidity removal fan that didn’t work. A lamp that was almost broken off the wall. An annoying patio door lock. A safe that quit working everyday and needed to be reset.... Not very safe. A light key that would work sometimes... But all these things are small in comparison. We received a welcome “Gift" from some very friendly people. The privilege club. They invited us back at 9 am the next morning to receive more “Gifts”. We arrived at 9. They told us that they would take us for a drive to a different location and it wouldn’t take more than an hour. It took from 9 am until 1:30pm to go through the sales process. We were sold. A very unfortunate and regretful decision on our parts as there is no way to recoup the downpayment which is a hefty sum. After researching post poor decision made under pressure we went back into the privilege club sales den into the quality control area. After speaking with another poor sucker next to me that felt she and her husband had also been scammed I informed here that it was impossible to get out of the contract and informed the quality control salespeople that they had legally thieved us, so they gave us more “Gifts”. Gifts that require you to pay up to $10000 canadian to use. I took them. Now we are home and considering letting go of the $5000 canadian that we dropped on a Privilege Club because the whole thing is such a piece of crap. Travellers aren’t lawyers and they try and liquor everyone up to make the sale more likely. Moral of the story. Do not make our mistake. This turned our vacation into a stressful rollercoaster ride. There may be a way to get out of this privilege club scam. Visa has a 10 day cooling off period specifically created because so many travellers are getting swindled through time share programs. My wife and I are unsure of how the investigation that Visa does will go because we are unsure of whether this privilege club will be legally considered a time share. This is a risk we are willing to take. Lessons learned in life can be expensive. Do not trust anyone. There was also a serious language barrier. If calling concierge make sure to only ask for one thing at a time. It is near impossible to ask for two.

Fantastic holiday

Me and my wife stayed at the Grand Bahia Principe Punta Cana for 2 weeks. The Bahia Principe resort on a whole is fantastic with lots of things to do. Our room was great very spacious, clean and with a very comfy kingsize bed. The pool for our hotel was great kept at a good temperature although we did need to get the towels out early! The guys at the swim up bar were very friendly and the Pina Coladas and Miami Vices went down a treat. The food at the buffet restaurant was brilliant with different themes each day to mix it up as well as having some favourites items kept each day and again all of the staff were friendly. At the hotel we could visit 3 restaurants on the site each week although we only decided to visit 4 they were Las Olas I (Carribean Buffet), Las Olas II (BBQ), The Garden Grill and Il Capriccios they were all fantastic and again meant that as can be the case with other all inclusive places you did not get bored of the food and once again as with all the staff they were great with us. There are photo guys who come round with animals on a daily basis which is a good bit of fun. Bahia Tours operate on site and they provide good deals on excursions in the area often alot cheaper than the main tour operators the guy we dealt with was Daniel he was great and made a real effort to speak to us each day. We also visited the gym onsite regularly which is alot better equipt than other reviews state so do not be put off. We also played tennis, mini golf and went on the bike tour the guy who took us around was great and super friendly. The beach for the resort is great white sand and like blue waters again though get out early for the sunbeds! Also onsite is the Bahia Village which is good for a shop and it is ALOT cheaper than Duty Free so pick up items from there. We saw 2 shows while at the hotel they were The Lion King and Michael Jackson Tribute both were fantastic. The Karaoke at the Village square was a good laugh and the dance club was an interesting experience. The lobby bar provided a great variety of cocktails and free WiFi. The hotel overall was brilliant and we both agreed it was the best holiday we have been on we had booked the Dominican on the recommendation of a few people including my Nan it was her favourite place in the world and it was really great for me to enjoy a place she loved so much.

great resort

Stayed at the Punta Cana side in the Royal Golden with Air Transit. These rooms are closer to the beach and main pool. Resort is large but the transport carts run all day and are easy to get so if you don't want to walk you don't have to. Meanwhile walking is fine as the walkways are in great shape and well lit at night. While it is a big resort the walk from the beach to the main lobby is less than 10 minutes, Rooms are big and clean and kept that way for the full trip ( April 10 to 17, 2017) good selection at the main buffet, gets noisy during peak hours but lots to eat and refilled regularly. Al la cartes are all right the best was the Japanese, good food , great service. Garden Grill and Mexican, so so. I am an early riser so no problem to get a beach chair with shade. Beach chairs are close together but you can find space. Beach cleaned all day. Did not hang at the pool so no comment. lots to see and do in the evenings. Lobby has entertainment if you don't want to do the shows. Dropped over to the village but did not spend much time there so no comment. Did notice the Canadians watching hockey at the sports bar. LOL All in all a great trip with good friendly service. I would go back . Only issue is the limited body( not just leg) space on Air Transit.

Average at best!

We stayed for our honeymoon. The facilities and beach were very good, with exceptiom of the room which was simple and the bathroom old and slightly dirty. Food was average at best and the a la carte food was bad. The entertainment staff was very good, but the rest of the hotel staff was below average. The day we arrived we were assigned a room which when we arrived at it with our bags was already occupied. It took around 1 hour and a half to get another room. We were promised a better room for the trouble and since we were on our honeymoon. The room was the same and complained to the lobby staff who promised additional services, but this never happened. The lobby staff and restaurant staff were very unfriendly and incompetent. Below average in general and don't deserve the stars they supposedly have. Don't recommend the hotel at all, go somewhere else that is worth the money.
