Our first night didn't go especially well. We had a lot of bugs in our room and asked to be moved. After that the next rooom was well kept and our stay was very enjoyable. Clean beach with a good atmosphere. My trip at Punta Cana Grand Bahia was especially great with the service of Blandino. Great wait staff to look forward to.

Great place. We want to go back soon. More than expected for me. Why? Because of some reviews that I read before we went there. Like no good customer services or hot dog at lunch every day. Wasn't like that at all. Everyone was nice and helpfull all the time. And the food was good and not only hot dog, even at the Snack Bar. Nothing bad to say. If we are going back to Punta Cana we will stay for sure at Grand Bahia!

Just retuned this week following a 2 week stay. I really would struggle to find fault with this hotel. Our room a suite was a really good size, the bed amazingly comfortable and the cleaning well just spotless a credit to this hotel I think the lady was called Maria who seemed to be assigned to our block. For an all inclusive again cannot fault the variety and quality of food and drink. Yes I had a couple of nights with a dodgy stomach but I saw that as a bonus given all the over indulging, the a la carte restaurants well my favourite had to be the lobster casserole in the Mediterranean closely followed by the Japanese. The beach was crowded but I always found a bed and the sea was to die for. Yes there was seaweed and I'm sure some people will moan about this, to be honest there was very little in the waters and what had come onto the beach there was an army of workers bagging it up daily and putting it to good use I saw fertilizing the soil in the magnificent grounds. The gardening team must be commended given the size of the estate they are covering I was blown away by the well manicured grounds. Wherever I turned there was always plenty of staff working hard keeping it prestine right down to the brass polishing of the banisters in the lobby. I also treated myself to a deep tissue massage outdoor by the pool. I Would highly recommend this $95 for 50 mins and worth every penny can't remember the name of the lady but it was up there as one of the best massages I've ever had. I have travelled extensively including several islands in that region and as hotels go this one has to be up there. A bargain for what we paid for what we received. You would be hard pushed to find anywhere else better value for money. I don't always leave reviews but felt this one needed to be posted for anyone worried by any negative posts. Ignore please and look forward to an amazing stay if you are fortunate enough to be booked in to go.

NO problems for us in Unit 7- very close to beach & main pools - upgrade called Royal Golden - from Nov. 14-22....we tip well every day so we had lots of extra bottles of water, extra towels, extra toilet paper, and a well-stocked bar every day. Extra towels & chocolates at night time turn-down. NO issues with noise but walls are very thin and can feel vibrations of kids next door in their early morning running around room or pushing furniture. Rooms had ceiling fans, TV/seating area with additional bed, jacuzzi tubs, balcony with 2 chairs & table, fridge, small safe, large double closets with hanging and shelving areas & 4 drawers in one dresser for TV. A/C was fair in one room and excellent in other. Building is 3 storey and we were on second. Alarm clocks in room did not work but we didn't care and safe was repaired quickly by staff - as needed new batteries. Food choices were overwhelming at the buffet Orquidex as well as pool buffet Piscis - lots to choose from every meal! We tried several restaurants - El Pescador; the Garden Grill; Sante Fe; and Le Gourmet and all had great staff and reasonable food. Our favourite was the french Le Gourmet which is actually housed in the Italian restaurant called Il Capriccio and meals came inside large steel domes that kids loved. We also ate in Las Olas twice which was very good. Our rooms & hotel & beach very beautiful & clean & well kept. Beach has beautiful, soft, white sand and tons of seating. Tons of staff everywhere - either cleaning or landscaping or serving. Pools and waterpark very well kept with lots of friendly staff. All staff very friendly and very welcoming and excellent housekeeping staff. The pool towels ran out once after a quick sun shower. It wasn't always easy to find pool seating at the main pool but we always would eventually. Around pools are staff selling stuff & they can be pushy if you don't say no immediately.Pools close early at 6p.m. because sun sets around 5p.m. and it is dark by 6p.m. Island is windy not a breeze but wind but thankfully a very warm wind however lots and lots of irresponsible resort people sun burnt. Sun shower is also warm waterdrops. Weather was gorgeous! Couple of mosquitoes at waterpark but otherwise no mosqitoes on resort - Dolphin Explorer had TONS of mosquitoes! Pool photos with birds, lizards & monkeys were very expensive at $10 each per kid. Lots of shopping throughout resort but stock seems very dated. Pool entertainment was great - very funny "spaghetti" staffer. The waterpark had lots of seating because water only ankle deep so great for toddlers but older kids not allowed on slides. The pool bars served watered down soda drinks - taste like soda water with color. The resort is very large with private sections Ambar & Esmeralda and main section Punta Cana with its own Premier section as well as Bavaro which was VERY busy & crowded. Trams were always available - no wait times at all any time of day or night. Free WiFi in lobby for an hour daily per device was enough for kids. Did not get to sports center nor mini-golf - which by the way is in full sun! Over 107 channels on TV but mostly Spanish - 3/4 music, 4 soaps, some movie, 10 english with news, sports & cartoons. Lots of entertainment on beach and at night at theatre but did not get to any of it! Lots to do. Did Happy Hour Sunset Party Boat Cruise with snorkeling and swam at natural pool (sandbar) and served drinks there as well. Excellent excursion! Best of all 3 excursion we did! Amazing staff on twin hull catamaran with has a bathroom however bus ride to location was hot and exhaust leaked inside. Also did excursion to Bavaro beach shopping, Mundo Autentico Tiao & Choco Museo chocolate museum/cigar factory tour then Palma Real shopping mall. First shopping stop was all haggling with aggressive dealers; chocolate museum and cigar factory fun for kids with chocolate samples and mall was incredibly overpriced expensive stores but we all got out of the heat for a day. Factory tours were a hokey - little staged and mainly to sell products - expensive $7/chocolate bar. Dolphin Explorer excursion was worst trip - so disorganized from booking through resort to arrival to departure and mosquitoes were brutal. Booked took forever and resort staff "Modesto" at Turissimo Carbe Excursiones D.R.failed to mention we would be charged additional (originally $450 for 3 swimmers & 2 watching) at site arrival for members of family not swimming $35 each! He instead told us we could all could attend called accompany which was VERY frustrating after a LONG bus ride! Very strict no photos allowed and told photos were $80 but actually that is PER PERSON! Actually dolphin swim amazing but short & quick & totally not worth $150 USD each. If you do ....go then swim and then just leave as bird show and seal show pretty lame & hokey & hot & mosquitoes not worth it. Suppose to be better than Dolphin Island and Manati Park where you swim in pool instead of ocean & "Modesto" says they abuse the dolphins. During trips, we did meet numerous groups with GI issues and several from our resort - one hospitalized! Would recommend Air Transat & Nolitours & Marco Travel. Our first time to D.R. & would choose somewhere else next time.
