Our Opinion

A lovely resort situated within the heart of the Punta Cana resort. There are a plethora of food options to choose from. The buffet spreads are great and have pleasant and attentive staff. Make sure to check out the BBQ Buffet, the Garden Grill and the Italian a la carte restaurants (reserve when you check-in, as there are limited spots for these places). Great modern and spacious rooms. The Grand Bahia Principe Punta Cana also has an incredible lobby bar, that very rarely gets busy. It's elegant, modern, and serves up some top-notch drinks, which makes this resort stand out from others along the resort strip. While the pool area is spacious, it gets relatively busy throughout the day. Make sure that you reserve spots early in the morning. The workout facilities could use an upgrade. There are very limited machines and some are often broken.

Return Visit.

We arrived on the evening of Thursday 14th September, 2017. The place has not changed much in 2 years. Yes people come and go. The staff especially Big Papa was still here just his jovial self and very helpful.We had the Hurricane Maria during our second week and have to say that all the staff on duty during the lock down from the Wednesday afternoon 13.00 till the next morning at 12.00 all followed policies and procedures laid down by the establishment which mad it easier for us. Food parcels and plenty of water plus free WIFI during the evening of the Hurricane. They all did an amazing job.The aftermath was not too bad. The work put into getting everything back to normal was done very efficiently and speedy. Well done everyone.On a happy note go to the Steak Al a Carte will not be disappointed. Amazing food and helpful staff. Recommendation try for a third floor room not much noise around.Food great at all times, on all breakfasts, lunches and evening meals.Safety deposit box in room was free, although it can take a bit to get it to work.Well maintained reception and they are very helpful. Will definitely be returning in a year or to. Very big resort . Small buggies are around all the time to ferry you around so you do not have to walk far. The beach area and restuarants are excellent. Make sure you take plenty mosquito repellant they were rife this year. Cesar who is the Rep for Thomas Cooke is excellent at his job and always ready to help. Did not go on any trips as it was a resting break we were on.

Great 2nd part of the holiday with family

We stayed here for 2 weeks in octorber, for our second part of our vocation. We were a group of 7. Mixed ages ranging from 20 - 42.The hotel was in a lovely location on the bavaro beach. The hotel formed part of a very large resort but oddly enough didn't feel like it. It is very tastefully done with lots of smaller villa blocks in tropical surroundings. The hotel was immaculate in every area. Rooms were spacious and very tradition and again had everything you needed, even though old, they were kept immaculate. Food - food I was pleasantly surprised about. It was amazing. So much choice and always plenty of it, despite the time of day you ate. Again one of the best all inclusive food I've experienced in my travels. Again a la carte we tried a few, garden grill, Tex mex and the Italian. After saying to the family, don't expect too much from this after my previous experience except Barbados they haven't been that great!!! They were amazing. (Just book in within the first few days for availability) Italian was my favourite. Also beach BBQ was great. Entertainment - again was amazing, nightly shows in the theatre made our stay very pleasant. The entertainment was very good, the circus was out of this world and wasn't expecting the shows again to be so good. After the theatre there was more entertainment in the Bahia principe village until 11:30. The Michael Jackson show was amazing. Nightclub then until 3 for the younger members of our party. Casino on site which was great to visit on a nightly basis for half hour to have alittle bet. Every night I at least doubled my 10 dollars. The beach was also very good, a little choppy being on the alantic side, still very warm and turquoise. We saw lots of pictures of sea weed before we booked, don't be put off by this. After walking up and down the beach we realised our hotel was a lot nicer located than most for sea weed and everyday and for most of the day guys were working on the beach and removing any seaweed. They did an amazing job.Guest services, some more helpful than others. Hector was a star and helped out when others wouldn't, great customer service delivered by him. Thank you. Overall a great last 2 weeks of our vocation. For what we paid this was great value for money, amazing weather with only one afternoon of rain that affected us. Mainly rained during the night. Would recommend for larger groups with mixed ages.

Other guests only problem!

Just home from a fab holiday, cannot fault the hotel. Only things to slightly annoy us were issues caused by other guests... such a letting children touch buffet food, not waiting their turn at bar, reserving sunbeds and the highlight of an entire pool closing because some idiot let their brat in without a nappy; who then promptly pooped! If you are going be sure to book Grill a la carte and order the rib-eye. Just act like a decent human being, control your children and then everyone will have a wonderful time here!

will not be returning

last minute booking and didn't do our homework ,food ok although repetitive and not well cooked main buffet tablecloths were not always clean and 1 night my napkin had been refolded full off lipstick ,staff seemed grumpy and when my husband politely asked for a fork he had one thrown onto the table infront of him.mossies were terrile and we never saw the grounds being sprayed ,We decided that this was a training ground for staff. Only 1 good point when we complained after 2 days block 19 was being refurbed and noisy we were moved in 2 hours .Hav stayed at cayo levantado 6 times in about 5 years and the owner of Bahia actually came on the island think its time incognito he did a week here .certainly not a 5 star would struggle for a 3 x wont be returning or recommending when we asked if we could upgrade we were told at reception this was only for Canadians Not impressed
