I decided, like many other folk, to check past and current reviews of this hotel before booking. I wanted to get away to somewhere far and hot - and this certainly was a good destination to go. The resort itself is fantastic and has some very good points - allow me to explain. A) First Impressions ALWAYS count - Upon arriving at the Luxary Grand Bahia Principe Bouganville, Adults Only, I was given a cool towelette and a flute glass of passionfruit. This was nice as the distance from the airport to the resort is about an hour in total and you can imagine how warm it was so it was refreshing to receive this gesture. My suitcases and bags were handled by a porter - the whole check in process was very quick - received my keycard, wristband and various other bits. I was taken to my room to which I found there to be huge kingsize 4 poster bed, (bedding quality is debatable), various choice of pillow filling i.e - hard medium soft etc. You need to make sure you bring a 2 pin adapter converter if your coming form the UK - I forgot mine so I was told to purchase one in the front lobby shop where it only cost $3. The Bathroom - now this was probably the only part of the room I felt that needed more TLC - some of the cleaning in the bath itself was not up to scratch, the door to the shower cubicle and toilet cubicle (which are separated by frosted glass ) were not cleaned throughly as I could still see what looked like mildew in the corners. No Shaving kits are given for men - but the usual dental kit, shower gel etc are there and restocked daily. B) The Pool - fantastic. Probably the highlight of my stay here as I spent a lot of my time here watching the world go by reading books and falling off into sleep. One guy religiously cleans the pool filters in the morning with some sort of chemical . I think, however, this may need to be done twice a day as there were a few instances where I saw a bit of slime on top of the pool surface. The Pool bar is exactly that - the lovely lady every morning brought Ice Tea around for everyone and a cool flannel for your forehead. This was very welcomed especially as I am not an iced tea drinker at all - but this is my new found favourite drink. Alcohol is plentiful - daily cocktails are changed. When the cocktails are no more (there were a few days where no Mojito's were available) - the woman and the guy behind the bar should offer alternatives rather then saying 'No more'. I mean you can see I wanted a drink so offer me something else ! C) The Beach - Ive seen and been on much better beaches then the one here. This can't be helped as it is something to do with a lake merging into the sea or something. Sand Flies are prevalent and found myself being swarmed by them quite often - after 2 days of it I thought no more and opted for the pool(s) where I was not bothered by a single insect or bug. D) Insects and Bugs - see above regarding the beach but in general, I did not hear of anyone complain about mosquitos which was odd! E) The Staff - Being a former commercial manager for a well known retailer, I know what service I would expect to receive from staff. The resort staff - especially the guys at breakfast are incredible. They really do care about what they are there to do - which is to make everyone feel welcome. You are escorted to your table in the morning for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Special shout out to "Juan" at the La Delia buffet lunch - what a cracking smile and always has a convo with me. The overall service DECLINES at dinner, massively - I went to all of the restaurants and the best service I received was in the seafood restaurant. Everywhere else - shocking. The worse dinner service I had was when I sat with a group of friends I met and we went to the Italian restaurant . There is one lady in there who had such a negative presence about her - her smile was fake and almost laughable (you know where someone smiles for about half a second and screws her face straight after). My other friends noticed this and said the same thing! What made it worse was that it was my final meal before I departed the resort ! F) The Food - amazing. Buffet's for breakfast and lunch offer a very wide variety of cuisine . Incredible amounts of food, freshly cooked and no issues with the toilet either. Highlight : Red Snapper, Grouper and well everything! Would I go again? Perhaps - if you want me to leave a review on Facebook, don't stand over me and watch me do it and force me to put 5 stars. Fantastic stay if you want to get away for the heat and quietness.

Great Wedding Experience

We are very happy for choosing this resort to celebrate our wedding with 50 guests in July 2018. Our Wedding planner Mariana was a star! She helped us with all the little details, accommodated our requests and her calm demeanor helped us stay relaxed on our special day. Our photographer Erik was amazing at capturing the special moments throughout the day and we are eternally grateful. We organizad a snorkeling tour to Isla Catalina with Coming2 through the hotel and Mary Carmen was exceptionally helpful setting up the excursion. The tour was amazing. All our guests were extremely happy with the event and the resort and it exceeded all our expectations. The photos dont do it proper justice. The place is a dream and the people that work there are happy.

Amazing Hotel , Amazing staff !

I really can not understand how some people can mark this hotel down ! I would say don’t believe all the negative reviews as it was quite the opposite. Upon arrival we were handed a welcome drink when checking in everyone was so happy and friendly it was a nice warm welcome the staff took our suitcases up to our room whilst we were checking in then they gave us a tour of our room and said if we needed anything we were to call our butler and he would assit Our butler Freddy was amazing ! One night we returned to our room to find champagne and chocolates , another to find room scents in our room, another to find our balcony with candles lit balloons and champagne it was lovely we received chocolates on our bed each night he was so lovely ! Staff 10/10 Staff here are wonderful everywhere I went they were very friendly I read on some reviews that no one speaks English if anything I found they spoke English really well and didn’t have any problems Breakfast staff that stood out the most Hector (also works don Pablo restaurant) Francis and Adderlin they always had great smiles and happy to serve us. Pool bar staff Celeste,antohony,Leddy and Carlos were amazing ! The entertainment team were amazing the best I’ve ever come across they all work really hard and there dancing is unreal ! Bebba,chocolatte,cappuccino,mr wow , David ,LG,Jose The hotel grounds are amazing and well looked after Beach was beautiful and yes the water isn’t 100% clear but if you walk a little further down it is clearer and we didn’t have any problems with it I couldn’t fault one thing with the hotel to be honest but I am not a moaner I don’t like to Moan for the sake of it I go on holiday to enjoy myself and that I did!

This review is my own and not influenced by anyone else, yes the hotel is very clean with excellent gardens and an army of cleaners chamber maids porters butlers waiters and bar staff like a small army buzzing around in very hot conditions trying to make my holiday good which they did.The hotel is very clean the gardens are looked after by a sub contract firm cutting miles of hedging by hand shears which in this day is time consuming have they never seen electric or battery powered tools,One morning one of the workers turned on a petrol engine blower at 7.15 am that must have woken a lot of people up.Be aware that the coach from the airport takes 2 hours plus as Tui make lots of stops to remote hotels.I read reports of dirty sea conditions with jelly fish, this was correct and a major disappointment, the sea was the colour of our own Bristol channel and staff were seen trying to net jellyfish the reason for this is a river estuary close by i spoke to a guest who had been stung on the ankle, restaurants were ok we had some wrong orders and we had to wait over an hour in the oriental restaurant for our starter.The buffet had lots of choice and some amazing displays of food. We did visit the fish restaurant but had no scallops or crab or lobster on the menu how can it be a fish restaurant without these things not on the menu!!,while i am having a moan the bars close at 11.00 pm that is far to early most hotels have a 24 hour bar,Some guests do not care how much noise they make at all hours of the night it is not helped by the open tiled floors that magnify the noise , and the cleaners are around at 8.30 am shouting down the corridors to each other so you will not get a sleep in.You cannot exchange money at the hotel, and brits beware no brown sauce although i did see some marmalade on some days.The other disappointment was that they had no swimming with crocodiles that i tried to get my wife booked on.Talking of my wife she woke me up at 3.30 in the morning saying that someone was trying to break into our room being still asleep i went to the door and yes someone was trying our door I opened it to see 5 ladies in disco dress who screamed and ran off i then noticed that i was naked and closed the door quickly.I paid 1185 pounds for this holiday ( 1.29 us dollars to the pound ) for 14 nights with 8.5 hours flying time. thanks for reading this hope it was of help.

Great break

This was our second time at a Bahia Principe hotel having stayed at the Cayacoys 4 years ago. The hotel is set in immaculate grounds, is very clean and is in a colonial style. The staff were nearly all friendly and very helpful. The food is excellent both the buffets and ala carte restaurant's and when you add in the inclusive room service its hard to fault. The rooms are large with Jack & Jill sinks and Jacuzzi baths and the cleaners do a great job. The beach is fine if not brilliant but you get the use of the Hobie Catts in the all inclusive so was out in the bay every day. I would have scored 5 but for the fact the accommodation is in two parallel three story 'villas' of approx 100m and 200m which is great for cleaning but although there were signs up a small percentage of guests found shouting down the long corridors late at night a good way of communicating without considering other guests. Dont let this put you off I slept well every night and the hotel is excellent.
