Me my wife and daugther did a 7day vacation in the Dominican Republic punta cana.The trip was nice but if you chose to gi we had a bad experience with Mosquitos and bugs in the room. And housekeeping was horrible they leave the doors open and the balcony doors open to letting all types of bugs in your room. We ask housekeeping for spray and they act like it was a problem. Prepare yourself if you chose to visit GRAND BAHIA PRINCIPE HOTELS.
Beautiful hotel and great service!!

We spent a week in June at the Bahia Principe Punta Cana. Having read the naysayers' experience, we were just a wee bit anxious. However, upon arrival, we were so pleased to see what a beautiful resort it is. We had upgraded to the Royal Golden and it was worth it...with a room in Bldg. 1 closest to the beach, speedy check in and check out, with personalized service in the Golden lounge. Our room had a King bed and the room was spotless, as it was every day after housekeeping came. They always provided sufficient towels and amenities. Make sure you tip the room maid every day. Israel, Leidy, Dignella and Esteban in the Golden lounge were all very helpful, friendly and accommodating. Leidy persistently tried to reach the airport staff about our delayed luggage. Miguel and Raime at the lobby bar were fast and friendly. The staff at the hotel work very hard to constantly tidy up and keep the place clean, even washing the walkways. The buffet was great too, with many choices for everyone and cheerful wait staff. Even the bartenders at the beach and pool bars were fast. The activity hosts get the guests going and laughing. The staff makes sure that you have a good vacation. The trolleys are constantly running, but if you want to burn off the buffet calories, considering walking to and from the beach.
Tips: Consider tipping even though all tips are included in an all inclusive resort. They work hard and really appreciate it (the bartenders, servers, housekeeping, bell man).
Consider the Royal Golden upgrade. Bring mosquito spray if you are prone to mosquito bites. Check in with the tour operators office the day that you arrive to make sure you can get in on the tour you want. They book up.
Nothing special - don't upgrade

Upgraded to Royal Garden section so we could enjoy 4 A La Carte meals; had to waste HOURS of our trip trying to get reservations. They told us all restaurants were full and we could only get 2 reservations. We didn't care which restaurants we got just wanted 4 A La Carte like we paid for. After constant complaining (and "come back tomorrow") we got the reservations. Restaurants were 1/2 empty so couldn't understand what the deal was. Was surprised to see buffets in the A La Carte restaurants (apps and desserts from buffet; main dish served). Food was whatever; some good stuff (made to order eggs at breakfast or made to order pasta at lunch) but nothing great. Lots of choices just nothing was great.
Never got turn down service or bottle of rum in our room that was part of the upgrade package but we couldn't be bothered to worry about it after the troubles we had making our dinner reservations.
Had constant traffic noise from the trolleys in our room as we were on ground floor and our balcony faced the "road". Woke us up some mornings around 6am because of the trolleys zooming by. Suppose to be relaxing on vacation not worrying about traffic from the trolleys or the constant golf carts.
If staff were walking in a group usually there was no "Ola's" or any acknowledgement from them, you would need to move out of their way to let them pass.
Mosquitoes were out in full force at dusk (don't forget your spray).
The resort is huge which is a downfall.
disappointed\staff where not friend!y

First of all make sure you get a safe we heard about people getting there money stolen some girls had there lock on there suite case picked open and left them with a few dollars you did feel like you had to watch your bag all the time we put ever thing in the safe this is a big issue please be careful. The complex was lovely and clean the gardens where fab but I would say only a small amount of staff where friendly the rest where rude they just didn't acknowledge you we found them very hard work. The swim up bar near the beach where not nice the staff where rude .The bar staff on the beach where ok.YOu never got the same drink twice as they didnt understand you.Make sure you book in the restaurant as soon as you get there as they where full but in fact they where half empty when you went the garden grill was the best meal we had the Mexican was poor the Italian we walked out the staff where rude the buffet restaurant was OK but food was bland.There was lots of seaweed on the beach to which they couldn't cope with cleaning up.As a family we had a good time but would never return they don't like the English and we said this to the manager all the other English couples we met said the same kind of things.
