Very very disappointed. Travelled air canada vacations Don Pablo Collection . I am a returning traveller. Had a wonderful experience last year hence we came back with a couple we met last year. But sadly the resort does to meet up to its 4.5 star rating. A 3 at best. I felt like just another number. They are operating with only 3 a la carte restaurants. So there is no need to go Don Pablo. You have to ask for the premium liquor. Our room was not in the don Pablo section. We repeatedly had to ask for towels coffee coffee cups. Upon our arrival the lights in the shower was burnt, the toilet did not flush. Had to ask several times to have it fixed. The pool area was not kept very clean. Same piece of lime was on the ground my entire stay. In fact I am going to check if it is there again today. Last year was first class all the way this year just another number. Not worth the extra expense for Don Pablo. More>

Ok just returned from Luxury Bahia Principe Runaway Bay Sept 22-29 2015 stayed in room 23700, 7th floor, king bed, walk in closet, side ocean view and building wall facing. Read the reviews and being a repeater at this hotel there's lot's of truth in them. The luxury was not there at all in my opinion, they the Don Pablo lounge had trouble keeping up with complaints. Beach towels were the only place at the lounge to get replacement, there should be be a hut outside near pool or closer that would be more luxurious, not let customer go up to the 3rd floor for towels. Reviews are accurate about the noise during my stay. There always construction early in the morning, no sleeping in you will hear it, there's also lots of dust pollution so please bring allergies medication, sinus etc. Only 1elevator in service for employees and customer and you need patience to ride this no a/c elevator with extreme heat I called it (sweat box) there should be two chairs at least in hallways on each floor near lift so we can site while waiting that would had been more luxurious. This week construction seemed to be everywhere it seems, even lunch time at main buffet area outside, it's the only place with a nice breeze to eat outside.Even on beach lot's of noise from restaurant construction. The only escape is going to the beach and at the farthest section before nude beach. It was less crowded, quieter and had cleanest toilet and there is a beach bar. Food it's a hit and miss in my opinion. Breakfast was the best of the day at Palmyra exclusive adult only buffet and a la carte, yes that was luxury. Great entertainment at night at different location, disco and sport bar are in bad shape and in need renovation nothing of luxury there very basic, to basic. All in all had great weather, the beach was marvelous and as always a vacation is what you make of it. Lesson learned would never go to any resort with major renovation again, but would go back to LBP after all growing pains are done in mid 2016 it will be beautiful. ps:employee gives you cards when you leave and ask that you make a review on trip advisor More>

One of the best 9 days I ever had, by far the best service ever, hotel was beautiful with a giant swimming pool. Lots of activities thru out the day. Food and amenities were great. The beach was awesome and water was nice and warm. The tours offer by Chukka Were Great and so it's their staff. Please look at our pics. More>

Felt like you are just a number on this property. Run out of clean towels very early in the day, hint to get them before you for breakfast. Secluded from town, so wandering around off the property is not really an option. You have to book excursions through your travel partner to get into town. Lots of food outlets, hint here is to book a few once you get there or else you might not get into outlets you want. Carry lots of one dollar bills so you can get service as the staff takes care of the ones that tip. Some staff approached me if i wanted any illegal drugs, i would stay away from that. More>
