Wonderful holiday

We just spent a week at the Grand Bahia Principe Turquesa wishing we could have stayed longer. What a beautiful place! Our room was really nice with a very comfortable bed. I loved getting up and sitting on the balcony with my morning coffee and watching the sun come up. By the way, the coffee is great there. It is also very kid friendly. Lots to do for the family. Lovely pool, kids water park and play parks. It is very easy to get around and the friendly staff there are willing to help get you to where you want to go. Looking forward to our next trip there hopefully bringing some of the grandkids with us. There is so much they could learn while having fun doing it.


We stayed at this resort from April 11 - 18 and booked it with Air Canada Vacations. Our room wasn't ready since check in is not til 3:00 pm and we arrived at 11:00 a.m. They gave us our wrist bands and kept our luggage at the lobby. We grabbed a bite to eat and checked out the beach, pool and property. By 2:30, we were able to get our room. We had an issue with our safe, but it was fixed quickly. We didn't have to pay the $ 5 daily fee for the safe because we were with Air Canada. We were also allowed to book 4 a la carte restaurants instead of 3. It's best to book it with the Air Canada office on site since I had problems booking it on line at the resort. We enjoyed the Japanese Tepanyaki, Seafood and Steakhouse. The buffet was also good with lots of choices but it was very busy. I wish more people would tip their servers since they work so hard. We see the same servers from 7:00 am to 9:00 pmThis resort is in a village with 5 other GBP resorts. Our hotel is the farthest from the beach but there's always a trolley available within minutes. The beach is beautiful but crowded because of all the resorts sharing it. If you want a palapa, you will need to reserve it at 6:00 a.m. My husband went jogging at the beach at 6:00 a.m. and found most of the palapas already reserved. Our room backed on to the main pool and the loungers were already saved when we went for breakfast at 8:00 a.m.The only excursion we did was scuba diving. The diving site was near downtown and it was a little shady. We felt like we were invading the locals territory and we did not feel very safe. That took most of the day because we had to wait for other divers to finish before we can get on the bus back to the resort.The property is clean, well managed and staff was friendly. We can walk to other GBP resorts and village stores. Some vendors were all over you in the beginning but they don't hassle you. They over charge for everything so make sure you bargain with them.Overall, we went on vacation for the beach and good food and Turquesa met all our needs. It caters to families with young children. Some of the kids go between excitement to total meltdowns. But they're kids. Our 13 year old still had lots of fun.

Very Pretty and Clean

We arrived at the Turquesa April 4th. We had friends coming from Canada, Missouri etc. to celebrate my husband's Birthday. The staff treated us good from the moment we stepped foot on the property. Check in was quick and easy. We ended up in Bld 4 which was requested with our friend in the adjoining room. Remember you do have to pay extra for the safes. Making dinner reservations was easily done. Just do not try to make changes afterwards as they get all screwed up and you might have a reservation when you arrive at the restaurant or not and the number of people might have changed. We tried the Mexican, Italian, Both Japanese restaurants. The food was good in all of them. We especially like the Japanese where they cooked in front of us. We had fun with all of the workers from beginning to the end of our desert. Melven was a character. Our buffet was the smallest as we were the smallest hotel in the group. But we always had fresh good food. The gal at the door always greeted you with a nice smile and a hello.Our rooms could of use a little up dating but they were clean and comfortable. Our maid did an excellent job of cleaning. We wish they had Presidente in the mini fridge, instead we got Coors Light. The Lobby was always clean and inviting. They staff did a great job of keeping the tables cleaned and ready for the next person to sit down. The bar was small but the bartenders were quick, nice and efficient.pool area was always clean and the bartenders did a good job of making sure everyone was taken care of.The trams ran constantly and only had to wait 30 seconds to a minute for a ride to the beach which took maybe 5 minutes. About a 10-15 minute walk to the beach depending on how fast you walk. After food and drinks why not get a little exercise?The Beach was great as usual, the animation did a great job getting everyone involved. Thanks Francel. Dancing, bocce, horseshoes, exercising etc.. There was not a lot of seaweed on the beach. They did have workers raking everyday all day. Cabana's were hard to get unless you got out by 6am to save one. This did not bother us as there are trees also that provide shade. My theory is you either get the Cabana or you get the View. We choose the view. Towels were not a problem, there were always plenty, even after the rain. We had bar service on the beach...thanks Louis. He remembered us from our trip to the Principe Bavaro in October. Beach buffets were good, a shout out to Maria whom took care of us in October as well. We were a group of 12 and I think any of us would return to this hotel. Thank You Turquesa

Mom's 50th Birthday

I booked a trip for myself and my mom for her 50th birthday surprise gift. After I booked the hotel and read the reviews; I was very nervous because they were all so negative. However, upon staying at the hotel, my experience was nothing but positive !! From the moment i checked-in until the moment i checked-out my every need was catered too. When we arrived we were greeted with a drink and our bell boy Fransico showed us all the features of our room. We needed assistance with the wifi and a safe , the front desk Lewdy and Carlos helped us promtly. The wait staff at the buffet was incredibly friendly and all guests are offered hand-sanitzer before they walk in. The food was fantastic !! They have lots of options , alot of vegetarian options which was great for me. The pool, the beach pool and the beach do get very crowded . You need to save chairs before 9am or you will not get a chair. I found this to be the only negative aspect of my stay. The resort is huge !!! We had no problems getting a tram at anytime of the day. They do have many village shops that are very reasonably priced .The workers are extremely friendly! They speak many languages so communication is no problem. They are always willing to have a conversation or answer any questions you may have. I will be returning to this resort ! I would recommend it to anyone ! One of the best places i have ever stayed . Its beautiful, clean and welcoming !!
