Grand Bahia Principe Punta Cana
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
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.
Location: Directly on Bavaro Beach, 30 min to Higuey, 25 min from Punta Cana airport, 60 min from La Romana airport.
We just returned from a 7 night stay and had a fantastic time with no disappointments to speak of. Our room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. Room service and housekeeping was courteous, dependable and consistently good. It was my sweetheart's 50th birthday and there was at least one gift in our room nearly every day. Upon arrival we were welcomed at the check-in desk by William. He was most gracious and accommodating. We later spoke with concierge Jorge and in following days with JuanCarlos who were both very friendly and helpful beyond all expectations. All three men were a huge help as we spoke English only. JuanCarlos even provided IT help with our laptop computer. The beach was wonderfully relaxing and quiet with just the sounds of the ocean and the occasional sand volleyball game. There is never any shortage of good food at any hour of the day. The wireless internet is rather slow but usually usable and I understand a wireless upgrade is in the works. We would definitely stay here again. We used Apple and were very pleased with them as well.
During my last visit to this resort I had a terrible time due to poor service, and bad room condition. After the fact I got in touch with the hotel management team and they admitted to the wrong doing, and offered me to come back to the resort as an opportunity for the hotel to compensate me for the week I did not enjoy but paid for.They sent me an official letter stating that they would offer me VIP service at any hotel out of their family of resort. Finally I decided to give it another try, and go with my family to Punta Cana.I got in touch via email with the management, attached the original letter that was sent to me, and asked for the offer that they would be able to provide me based on the letter that was sent out to me; I'd like to mention one more time that the hotel apologized for all the wrong doing, and agreed to compensate for the money/time lost by offering a VIP service.1. The time it took the representative to respond was excessive and for someone who's trying to solidify plans for a family of 4 is absolutely not acceptable. We got work, kids, and pets that we need to plan around for in advance. 2. The representative was just trying to sell me a week in the resort, and would not elaborate on what the VIP treatment would include, and I personally would not want to book a vacation expecting to get VIP treatment and end up getting nothing at all.3. Eventually The representative got back to with an offer to stay at the the Luxury Bahia Principe Fantasia Don Pablo Collection for an amount with flight + airport taxes that equals to a $1,000 more than I could get myself via itravel2000. After I brought it to their attention, and emailed a few times; I got no response at all.I find this type of business practice unethical, and offensive considering that fact that I was willing to give it a try, and was not expecting to get anything free, but to come back to me with a "deal" that essentially is not a deal, and would cost me more is simply wrong.
This was our first time in Dominic Repúblic, we are a group (of 13 people)that do gather every year and this time we selected this beautiful place, because in our group there is one person that is Dominic. The place is nice, service is great. But we all notice some lack of the following details; to some of us we were given second story level and there are NO HANDRAILS, bathtub is clean, but gets slippery even with your own shampoo and/or hair conditioner and it DOESN'T HAS STIPES to prevent an injury (I slip in the bathtub). The days we stayed were rainy on & off. As for the rest is great.
We stayed at this fabulous hotel complex in September 2016 for 2 weeks. We had a great room with the biggest bed we had ever seen ....really comfy. The room was spotlessly clean with clean towels and sheets everyday,the housekeeper was brilliant. The beach is gorgeous with plenty of sunbeds available and a handy beach bar .The restaurants you can book are really good especially the Garden Grill and Italian restaurant.I must say the entertainment every evening in the lobby was excellent too. The only bad points were a slow check in and poor internet .
We had an amazing experience thanks to our Olympus Tours Agent, Elizabeth Mercedes. She was very accommodating with all of our questions and needs. She even assisted us with an issue that we experienced at the airport. She suggested the Boogie Excursion which was the highlight of our vacation. Afterwards, we had a facial at the on-location spa...it was the icing on top of the cake. The morning of our departure, Elizabeth met us in the lobby to ensure that everything was to our satisfaction. Kudos to Elizabeth...we made a new friend. We're looking forward to vacationing at the Grand Bahia Principe Punta Cana in the near future and hanging out with Mercedes.
