    Hotel is Far from the Beach,

    We stayed 10 days with our family (3yo 11yo) + Rather clean hotel / rooms + Restaurant Services + Swimming pools + Available amenities (water park) + Sand Beaches + Customer /Guest Services -Is a BIG Hotel complex, so be ready to Wait for transportation to move around. The hotel is FAR AWAY from the beach. - Overpriced medical center, Doctor available for « urgencies » focused Mainly on finding ways to increase the bill... rather than the patient. -Mosquitos at the Lobby, are impressive - Excursions Sales on the beach ( constant disruption)

    Fantastic stay at Grand Bahia Principe!

    Number of times I've been to the hotel: First time Wristband status: Silver (which is for people who have been there many times. I was traveling with a group that has been there many times and was automatically given the silver status). This bracelet gave us access to three of the four resorts in the complex. Duration of stay: 8 days Name of the hotel we stayed: Grand Bahia Principe Turquesa I'm going to start with a brief note to Americans traveling to Dominican Republic and/or Grand Bahia Principe. I cannot stress enough just how safe the resort is. After all the negative media surrounding the resort, my group considered changing the reservation. As the trip got closer, we were all still very nervous. However, upon arriving to the resort and seeing how clean everything is and the incredibly friendly staff (who pour every drink right in front of you), that fear quickly dissipated. Several times throughout our 8-day stay, we witnessed officials inspecting the bar areas. Seeing this just added to our comfort level. If you are considering changing your reservation because if the negative media coverage, I would say that the hysteria is unwarranted. You would feel safe from the minute you entered the resort. Now to the review. Pros: 1. The workers: The complex staff are some of the hardest working, warmest, and friendliest people I have been around. They go above and beyond for the customers and do it with a smile. Most staff speak at least three languages (Spanish, English, and French). Shout out to Perla from housekeeping, John from the swim up bar at Turquesa, Ideas from swim up bar at Aquamarine, Jose from Coming 2 excursions, Maria and Isabel from Turquesa lobby bar. 2. Pools: the "beach pool" was very enjoyable. It can get crowded in the afternoon, but very nice and close to the beach. The Turquesa pool gets extremely crowded with kids and families. If you are looking for some quiet pool time, try Aquamarine, if possible. I believe you have to have a certain bracelet to be able to enter that one, so I would just recommend staying at that hotel if you will be with only adults. Each pool has daily activities and games that are sometimes painfully cheesy, but tons of fun. 3. Food: It is often difficult to mass produce food that is still delicious. Somehow, though, they really accomplish that goal with the buffets. Some nights are better than others, like Dominican night. But, overall, this is the most flavorful mass produced food I think I have ever had. They hit the mark in terms of seasoning. If you are expecting the greatest food of all time, think again. But will you enjoy at least something every night? Absolutely. I recommend making reservations at Los Corales (Dominican, family-style) and Maiko (hibachi, set menu). Those were great experiences and delicious food. 4. Complex Nightlife: The complex has an interesting selection of nightlife, but with the right crowd, it can be so much fun. It is almost like a very small town. The karaoke bar is a good time. Small selection of songs, but great service and great fun. The casino is also a good time, but very small. My only unpleasant experience at the hotel was with a lady exchanging money and chips at the casino. The night club is also an interesting experience. There is a variety of music that plays (mostly hip-hop and Latin music). It has an awful smell, but it is still a lot of fun. 5. Spa: The spa is phenomenal. I did the Bahia Experience massage and the hydrotherapy (they were running a special at the time in which the massage was $110 and I got the hydrotherapy for free). Both were exceptional. The prices are much more reasonable than any US hotel would charge for a massage. Cons: 1. Rooms: Yes, the rooms are a bit outdated at Turquesa. However, they are very clean, air conditioners work well, and beds are comfortable. Who spends that much time in their room anyway? If you are spending that much time in your room, you are vacationing wrong. 2. Beach: The beach is very pretty, but, through no fault of Bahia Principe, there is quite a bit of seaweed. Every day, though, there is staff actually raking the seaweed out of the ocean and putting them in piles so that people can enjoy that water. The beach vendors can also be a little pushy, but that is no fault of the hotel. 3. "Snacks": There are only two places to get snacks between proper meals (this is especially important if you miss breakfast or lunch). You can go to the beach buffet or Los Corales for a snack. The selection is very limited at the buffet, though. The beach buffet is also a 7 or so minute trolly ride, so not super convenient for a quick bite. 4. Closing time for pools: Pools close at 7 PM, which can be disappointing when you want a nighttime dip. Just prepare your day with that time in mind. Recommendations 1. If you can, go to Bávaro buffet. This buffet was our favorite. 2. The Aquamarine pool is beautiful. It is adults only. 3. Come to the island with enough singles for tips for bartenders, trolly rides, and wait staff. A dollar goes a long way for these staff, but it doesn't hurt for us to part with a buck. I recommend leaving a dollar or two for each round of drinks, each meal, and if a trolly driver goes out of their way to drive you somewhere. I also recommend leaving housekeeping a daily tip or a large tip at the end. Our housekeeper (Perla) was fantastic and we left her a $25 tip at the end of the trip. It is good to note that there is an ATM in Bavaro, and the fee to take out cash is about $4. Overall, this was a fantastic experience, from the people to the food to pools. I would highly recommend staying at Grand Bahia Principe Punta Cana.

    Honeymoon

    The room that we got first was the part of family room, so we can hear everything happening in our neighbor couple. Thank Got it was changed. By the way the room needs renovation so we are Not satisfied with the accommodation as it was our honeymoon. (Photos attached) We are also do not recommend to go to the Japanese restaurant from a la carte. When I ordered only the piece of salmon (that’s what I got on my plate, photo attached below). From the positive side, entertainment and people working e. x. Having spanish or dancing courses was unforgettable and highly recommended. As well as the wide choice of food on everyday buffet.
