If you are looking for a place that's willing to go extra mile to make you happy, I encourage you to choose Luxury Bahia Principe. The location is perfect, very clean, everyone is ready to help you to make you feel at home. My Wife and I went there for our 1st Anniversary. the Hotel Treated us like King and Queen. They surprised us with decoration and many other things. The Hotel is very clean, The food was beyond amazing. The Restaurants were excellent. My Wife was begging me to stay for more days but I had other Business to take care of. We will definitely go back to enjoy this paradise. Thank You Bahia.

I stayed at this resort from July 8th to July 14th. Overall the property is beautiful. My room was very nice. They decorated the door for my birthday which I thought was a nice touch. We did have a situation with the toilet constantly leaking. We complained about it multiple times. Maintenance did show up once, but never actually fixed the problem. The staff kept telling us not to throw toilet paper in the toilet, but that wasn't the problem. The tank itself was leaking. Not a big deal for us though. We are on vacation so we spent as little time as possible in the room. The food at the buffet was really good. There were many options to choose from. The best restaurant by far is Don Pablo. I highly recommend getting reservations at this restaurant. Both the food and service were impeccable. They had a special birthday cake for me the night we went. The buffet also had a birthday cake for me during lunch. I did not really enjoy the Japanese restaurant. In my opinion the food did not taste like Japanese food. The flavor profile had too much of a Spanish influence for my liking. The night we ate there we dined with a couple of friends we made while on vacation. One of the chairs was broken so our new friend asked that it be replaced. Upon doing so one of the staff members made a rude comment in Spanish. I guess he didn't realize that we understand Spanish. I addressed my concern with the management and they did take it seriously. I'm not sure what the outcome was, but it was nice to see our concerns being taken seriously. The Entertainment staff did a wonderful job keeping everyone entertained throughout the day and evening. They were a lot of fun.One thing I found a little off putting was a situation with the DJ by the pool. At first he was playing up beat music that was creating a great mood in the pool. The next thing we know he is playing a slow love song over and over again. I walked over to find out why and he is face timing with his girlfriend. He told me he was playing the song for her. I'm all for love, but at the same time I payed a lot of money for this vacation and I don't want to be bored. I want happy, up beat music that keeps everyone in a good mood. While I was there my friend and I booked a spa treatment. I thought it was strange because they had our treatment set up in the same room. We are not a couple, we are friends. This was strange to me. I wish I would have said something at the time of the service. As relaxing as the massage and chocolate wrap were I lost a lot because I was self conscious having someone else in the room with me. I really can't understand why they would put us in the same room. Throughout this vacation we had a lot of ups and downs. Mostly ups with a few minor distractions. There was one thing that I did not enjoy about the resort and hopefully they can figure something out to correct this. I chose this resort mainly because it was adults only. This resort is right next to a family resort. Some of the specialty restaurants are on the family side. Not a big deal, in the future I will chose not to eat at these restaurants. What bothers me is the main entertainment for the evening is on the family side. So if I want to see one of these shows I am forced to be around children. For some reason the parents of these children go into "vacation mode" and allow these children to run around unsupervised. In my opinion children climbing all over the bar, main stage, tables, what have you is not cute. This is why I chose adults only. If they could find a way to offer the same entertainment to the adults only side without subjecting us to the children we chose to avoid this place would be so much better.

Nice resort and close to Santo Domingo

We decided to stay on the adult only side instead of the family side and were glad we did. It adds several more restaurant, bar and pool options. The rooms are nice size and comfortable. The non-buffet restaurants are varied and serve good food. The buffet is just so-so. The biggest negative is that you can't check in until 3 pm but you aren't allowed to make a reservation for that night's dinner after 3 pm which doesn't make any sense. They kind of force you to eat at the buffet your first night there. There were other services that you couldn't reserve (such as a haircut in the salon or a massage) if you didn't call a day in advance.

Extremely relaxing

This is the perfect hotel if you want to relax and disconnect. The room had the pool view, everything looked very clean and there was no noise that disturbed our sleep. The food at the buffet was always on point, with a vast variety, from lobster to steak, they had everything, and the service was very good. Cons: Reservations at the restaurant was impossible, we had to dine at "El Pescador" a restaurant located in the resort next door, there the service and food was average, poor if you compare it with the Bouganville side of the hotel. We had to wait in line even when we had reservations and you don't get the restaurant experience at all because you have to get up to serve yourself the appetizers, salads, ect... the only thing that the waiter brings to you in the main course and the beverages. If you can, make reservations as soon as you arrive at the Hotel at the Don Pablo restaurant, but if you are not able to, just have your dinner at the 5 stars buffet in the Bounganville side... it's 10 times better than "El Pescador". We only spent two nights here... I wish we had more time.

Great weekend

Really loved my stay at this hotel. Originally I had a reservation for the Gran Bahia Principe La Romana, but got offered a free room upgrade along with another couple of friends, since the hotel I reserved was pretty crowded. The room was amazing, huge, beautiful, very comfortable bed, everything worked fine and was very well equipped. The food was great. Was unable to eat at a restaurant a la carte, because it required a reservation and I forgot. Free Wi-Fi, very good drinks, friendly staff. I spent a lot of time at the other hotel, since my group had a few children and the Luxury is adults only, but i loved every single minute i spent there. I will probably be back.
