Bahia Principe Resort review
LISA J.
May 30 2018
We stayed in the Ambar Blue section of the resort. My first issue is that I picked an "adult only" resort, unfortunately, not ever part of this resort is adult only, and we were never told that. The room was clean, but dated. It was obviously in need of repairs. The air conditioner didn't work well, and we had to have the temperature set to the lowest level for any relief, and it wasn't much. We had issues with the power going out and sat in the dark for two hours before someone helped us. I had gone to the front desk to ask for assistance, I was told they would send someone to our room, and never did. When I was leaving for the 2nd time, an employee was walking past our room, I stopped them and they assisted us. The beach was so covered with seaweed that we only went once when we first got there, and never bothered to go again. We just stayed by the pool. We would have liked to spend time in the pool in the evenings, but it closes at 7pm. The bar staff was friendly until they realized that we weren't tipping above what is supposed to be included in the cost of the trip, then they would forget to make the drinks properly. We chose to eat at the buffet most of the time, but there were flies all over the place and the food was often overcooked. The pool was huge, beautiful, and one of the few places that were adult only.

The hotel was beautiful, but our room needed a lot of repairs. The AC didn't work well, the power went out a few times (once for two hours without assistance despite my going to the front desk for help). We had to have the temperature set to the lowest setting, and it was still very warm in the room. After the people in the room next to ours checked out, it sounded like the employees were remodeling the room in the middle of the day, while we were trying to relax from being at the pool. The food at the buffet was often overcooked, and there were flies around us while we were trying to eat.

The food is terrible quality... I lost weight in an all inclusive resort, who does that? The cocktails were very inconsistent. The rooms have only 4 outlets total and the mattress was worn out. Pillows very small too... Air conditioning was weak. I would never stay at this resort again based on the food quality alone!

Two Issues
RAYMOND K.
Apr 29 2018
Overall, very good experience. Two issues; The zip lining excursion information at the Apple desk in the hotel was outdated. As a result, one of the activities was no longer available, and we had to make a quick decision on the available activities - which turned out to be below average. The second issue was poor communication regarding the departure transfer. As a result, we almost missed out airport transportation.

We were very disappointed with the resort. They have expanded the size of the resort greatly, but the size of the beach can't expand, so the beach is too crowded to enjoy. There aren't enough staff for the size of the resort or the number of guests, and only a few speak any English. The pool bar staff was terrible, as was the liquor...all second rate and watered down. The buffets were the only decent food, so don't bother making reservations. The rooms were large and pretty, but we came home with a dozen huge bug bites, the A/C never worked right, and three days we had a cold shower. Our rooms didn't get cleaned till late afternoon. We won't be returning and we won't recommend this resort.

Traveled with 2 other couples, our room was not ready and another couple had double beds instead of a king. It took over an hour to change their room. Apple made reservations for us at the hotel restaurants. They were not all at the same time. When we went to guest services to correct, we were told all restaurants were full and could not get reservations changed until 8pm or after. Guest services advised since we were in the adult only section, we could not eat at the other resort buffets. We did anyway. Went on 3 excursions that we booked through Apple on site and had no problems. I would go back but not sure if I would pay the extra for the adult only section. The only perk was it was closest to the beach for walking.

This was our second time at this resort. We had a wonderful time. Food, cleanliness, service was wonderful. The beach and ocean were spectacular. Hiraim the Apple representative was amazing. He made you feel like you were family and handled all questions or issues you may have had. I am hoping we can return next year.

This was one of the best all inclusive experiences we have had of about a dozen all inclusive vacations. The beach is gorgeous and is probably the cleanest compared to any resorts we saw on our beach walks. Food overall was decent but some of the a la carte restaurants were exceptional. Because the Ambar Blue is part a large resort complex you can explore and find all kinds of entertainment to suit your taste. Staff is super friendly and positive and they aim to please, we loved the butler service. We were sad to leave.

Hotel staff seemed to have the "right of way" . They parked cleaning carts in the middle of a busy walkway so guests had to walk around them. Staff would not cede the right of way for the guests. Seems like the staff was intimidated on Monday morning when management returned to the property. Someone was always trying to sell something to me. Did not like the experience and by the middle of our stay, we were forced to avoid the lobby in fear of being asked to buy something or commit to a sales talk.

We really enjoyed the resort and our stay. The hotel staff was amazing. We enjoyed the entertainment and the pool facilities. We will be traveling back to Punta Cana in the next couple years and we will make sure to stay at this resort again. I will also book through Apple Vacations again too. Apple Vacations made our travels safe and easy.

This is not the first time we visit this hotel. The place is simply amazing, the food is absolutely delicious, breakfast at nikkei restaurant was a treat every day! The staff is very nice and helpful, especially I wanted to mention Abe Said for his great smile and positive attitude and Beronica Galan for her help during our stay. All staff at nikkei restaurant is also worth mentioning for their hard work and great attitude.

Everything you could want and more

Traveled with 5 friends Everyone loved the hotel very clean the pools were great the food was simply amazing and the transport around the huge “ city of a resort” was always available, we never waited more than 3 minutes The only incident was that one couples AC was “ not working” so they changed rooms without any questions asked The AC was fine it just does not go on when u remove the door key Saves energy!!!

nice but........... recently came back from the Amber Blue + I have to say this a very nice hotel/resort, food was great as were the drinks,hotel grounds + pool areas were spotlessly clean, however there should be a tea+ coffee machine near the pool bar, service was mostly good except the lobby bar at night, we found that if you did`nt tip you did`nt get served ! On 1 occasion 4 of us were stood at the bar waiting to be served when someone came to the bar with money in hand + was served immediately ! this happend a few times so we put a complaint in at reception+ our tour rep. Rooms had a few faults (air con kept failing etc) but the hotel is having a refurb from June 2018 so that should be sorted. The beach at times had a lot of seaweed on it which cant be helped, but the way it was dealt with was pathetic ! men were digging deep holes in the beach + burying the seaweed ! On a plus note we had a few meals in the garden grill (steak house) + it was fantastic, special thanks to Maria she was a diamond. We stayed in room 67212 facing a road which at times esp early morning was very noisy. A very special thanks to Marcos who worked at block 67 he was so helpful. Be aware this is a huge resort with 7 hotels ! there are no lifts + you have to do a lot of walking
