    Privilege club

    My husband and I purchase the Bahia membership in 2017 @ the Bahia principe in DR punta cana we go through the presentation for about 3 hours and we finally decided to sign up since it makes sense and the vip perks was exactly what we needed to boost up our vacation it takes a bit more time to do paper work but being at bavaro on my free certificate it was surely worth it, everything was delivered as promise we were treated as royalty with the black n gold armband...and looking forward to get the same treatment in Jamaica for our next trip...we’ve been doing short trips in the states but my best is the AI in the Caribbean ...thanks to Benito for all the help my concierge 🌝🌝🌝🌤

    Amazing Holiday, Beautiful place!!

    We stayed here for 11 nights with our two children age 11 & 7, from the moment we arrived we were treated wonderfully. This is our second visit here. Our room was spotless clean, lovely and comfortable, with a mini bar which was great. The hotel grounds are kept immaculate, the gardeners work so hard it’s kept clean and beautiful. The food was delicious, always fresh and something for everyone. We enjoyed eating at the different restaurants our favourite was the Italian. Thank you to Jorge in the buffet restaurant he was so helpful, also to Luis & Jose in the Mexican restaurant. Also Elissa in the beach grill she was so friendly and helpful please thank her! The pools were kept spotless clean, and the beach was amazing, the workers on the beach worked so hard clearing the seaweed each day. The entertainment staff were also fantastic my children loved getting involved in the daily activities on the beach. Our favourite was the mini Olympic day it was great fun and we all got involved. The evening entertainment was great, we enjoyed listening to the live music, there were also shows each evening. I can honestly say this holiday was perfect and we cannot wait to return! Thank you to all the staff they work so hard each and everyone of them, they are a credit to your hotel! Please ignore the negative reviews, the hotel & the location are amazing!!

    Dont bother

    Wrongly I wrote my first review of this hotel half way through my holiday but as time went on this hotel proved to be pretty bad. I have tried to write this review 3 times and it kept being deleted when I tried to post, so am not going to go into too much detail. Overall, hotel grounds, pool area and rooms are decent, beach is amazing and food ok. However the thing that lets this place down is their staff, unbelievably rude. No staff say hello, restaurant staff horrendous, you have to ask for a drink 3 times before it turns up, one waiter in the garden grill tutted when I wasn't ready to order my food and refused to take a drink order until we decided. We decided on this hotel after staying at the Luxury Bahia pricipe akumal in mexico last year which was amazing, this place lets Bahia Principe down. Avoid Punta cana and go to Mexico.

    We stayed here for 10 nights in September. We couldn’t find fault with anything. Our toilet did leak one time but rang reception and somebody was there to fix it in 5 minutes!!! Food and restaurants were lovely plenty of choice. Beach is amazing. Staff work so hard all the time!! Only problem I had was nothing to do with the hotel, it was the mosquitoes. So please be prepared for them. I thought I was. There is a lobby shop next to the Japanese restaurant which sells mosquito repellent, can’t remember what is called but it is in a red spray bottle and cost 10 dollars, this was the only thing that worked for me. All in all amazing place and would return if it wasn’t for the mosquitoes. 😊
