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.

Poor service, frustrations and mosquitoes

I am not one to complain quickly and will usually endure the odd issue while on vacation but my bad experiences at the Bahia Principe Punta Cana has prompted this review.Front Desk - Takes much too long to check-in and staff don't seem to care. When I called the front desk from our room they did not answer.Housekeeping - What a disaster. Every day we returned to our room to find an issue such as beds without sheets, no towels (twice), no soap (twice), no coffee and one day the maid didn't come at all.Pool towels - Both pools do not have enough towels for all of the guests and most days when we asked for clean towels we were told they had none which meant that we had to re-use the dirty towels from the previous day. Maintenance - One day we arrived back at the room and the door lock would not open. I was told by the front desk that a technician would be there in 5 minutes but I waited an hour for him to arrive. The next day we had the same problem but I managed to get into the room after swiping the key 26 times. The technician came out again, did nothing but said the lock was OK and we had problems with it for the rest of our vacation.Mosquitoes - Every day when we returned to our room we found many mosquitoes in the room. When I complained I was told that they would fumigate but they never did. I was bitten over 30 times during our stay mostly at night while I was asleep.Hotel Manager - When I asked to speak to the hotel manager about some of these issues I was told he would call me back but he never did.DO NOT STAY HERE!

Wedding nightmare

Hi to all!I was at the Grand Bahia Principe Punta Cana in 2016 and loved it, however my dream wedding turned into a nightmare July 2017. I paid over 17,000 dollars for the experience that I had I can say it has been very traumatizing. But it is not the people that work there fault. They were not ready for 130 guest. The front desk during check in was horrible, and the way they handle my wedding was worse. I don't want to get into details but I don't recommend to do your wedding at any of the grand Bahia unless you have 30 people or less... they made my entire family wait over 5 hours during check in to get rooms and once they got their rooms none of the rooms were available and some even had other people's belongings.. some of the rooms were flooded with water. They DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH STAFF TO MAKE YOUR CHECK IN FASTER... my story is very depressing that it hurts so much to even continue.... I wish I can get some of my money back, but all they said was sorry and did not work anything out for me or my wedding.. PLEASE DO NOTTT!!!!!!! PLAN WEDDINGS HERE.!!! You will lose so much money..

Another great holiday

Spent another 2 weeks at the hotel, had a great time staying in villa 14. Room was clean and had no problems. Food in the buffet restaurant was very good Thank you to Manuel. Pool bar staff were very good thank you Alberto and Fernando. Gardens were well kept so thank you to all the grounds maintenance staff.

Big resort

The resort was great and the food was good. The pool and beach area were the best part. The bartenders were really good and fun. The only part that we did not enjoy was the size of the resort. We were very far from the pool and beach areas. It was a really long walk and the carts took forever. If you stay towards the beach I'm sure it is fine.
