Beautiful Resort

We loved this resort! We travelled with two teen girls and everyone enjoyed our vacation. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because check in was a disaster. They were extremely disorganized and it took forever. First they told us our teens couldn't be near us unless something came up the next day. Then 10 minutes later, they found us an adjoining room. We were travelling with another couple and they told them there were no rooms ready, to come back in a few hours. When we complained, they found a room in our building. They had all the rooms mixed up as too who was in which. After several tries we thought he (Keny) had it sorted out, only to find out hours later, they were still not in the right names, We had to go back several times as our keys wouldn't work. However, once our keys were sorted out,everything was great! The landscape is beautiful, extremely clean and well kept. The rooms are lovely and clean. We had an adjoining room with our daughters that worked out really well. The staff is very friendly and do their job well ( except for those doing check- in!). The food was top rate! The buffet had so much variety and was not the same every day. The seafood night was the best!! It us nice that you can go to other areas of the huge resort for meals. We enjoyed the Japenese a la carte very much. The chefs cook your meal right in front of you and it was so delicious! The beach is amazing. We always found chairs and enjoyed strolling forever! Make sure to try drinks in different lobbies as some make them better than others. The entertainment shows were really good! The recreational staff works very hard to make your stay enjoyable. We especially enjoyed Rosita( I think that was her name). She is so full of energy and made stretchy,stretchy time and water aerobics so much fun! I would highly recommend this resort!

Just a perfect vacation

It was my first visit to the Dominican Republic and I am impressed. Together with a friend, we stayed at the Grand Bahia Principe Turquesa from the 23rd of November till the 2nd of December and it's definetly worth going back there. I've been to a lot of beautiful places but after coming home I have never before felt the urge to go back to a specific place. We absolutely want to go back there again - already looked for offers at the Punta Cana Airport for next year. ;) The whole staff - whether it be in the restaurant or the front desk - was always friendly and ready to help. To be honest we had nothing to complain about, except for the next time we have to stay at least two weeks.Especially the entertainers - who are arranging all kinds of activities every day from morning to night to please everyone - have to be emphasized. Francisco is just a very likeable person and an excellent dancer (he's got better hip swings than most woman ;)). Ramirez is just as pleasant, incredibly funny and amusing. You could only watch them the whole day and still have fun. They are very understanding even if you mess up some dance moves. ;) They got a place in my heart. All in all I am completely impressed of the whole atmosphere, the facilities as well as the staff!

Don't even bother booking here with Transit Holidays

The day we arrived, we checked in on time at 3pm, and was told our room wasn't ready. They said to wait 30 mins, and they would get back to us. So after the 30 mins we went o to the desk and asked for and update. We were told this 5 times. "Give us 30 mins" It took over 2 hours to get into a room, and all we wanted to do was relax. Once we got into the room the safe was locked. It was supposed to be open so we could secure our belongings. So we had to call the front desk and we waited for an hour for them to open it for us. So the first day was a write off.We also had no body towels in our bathroom when we arrived. Since it was our Honeymoon. The front desk said that they would decorate our room and have Rum and flowers on the bed and in the bath tub. Took them two days to do something for us, and we only got a banner on our door and balloons on our curtains. We mentioned this to our Transit REP he'd take care of it. But we never saw him again after that. He was gone "day off" I suppose.Our Maid only came twice to our room in the 5 days we were there. The one time she came she took all of our towels and left none. I had to call the lobby/reception to ask for towels. Our maid came up and knocked on our door 30 mins later with towels with stains and them not folded. She rolled her eyes at me when I said thank you.Our last day we left money to thank her for the trip and she never came...We also noticed we weren't top priority at this resort. The locals were favoured over us. The second last day of our trip we set up an excursion to go Dune Buggying. We were told by the REP of Transit to be at Bavaro Lobby for 8:05am. So we were. We saw our excursion truck pull and tried to get in and The driver said we had to wait for the next bus.... That wasn't til 11am. So we woke up early for nothing. We talked to our REP and he said the guy accidentally put us in for 11am instead of 8:05pm to be picked up. I wouldn't suggest drinking bottled water there. My husband and I were sick the entire time.My husband and I don't ever plan on going back to Turquesa Bahia Principe. OR using Transit Holidays. They were useless! We lodged a complaint with our travel agent and all they said was sorry. They said they'd do an investigation. Which they did no such thing. I have the PDF of the so called investigation. It's all rubbish! This honeymoon was something to remember and not in a good way...
