Grand Bahia Principe Cayacoa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
We just returned from two week’s vacation here, it was absolutely superb. The main part of the hotel is located on the top of a cliff, and landscaped down to outlying parts, all with stunning views across the bay. Cleverly they have a lift which takes you from the main building to the beach. That said our favourite part was the pool which has loads of room for games, exercise etc, and a swim up bar where Raul took great care of us. Our room was clean, well equipped and very comfortable, which for a guy with a bad back was just great. I was surprised that we had to pay extra for the room safe, but they know your gonna needed so they have you over a barrel. The room wifi is also extra, but I guess that a plus as you don’t spend your time on the internet instead of enjoying a great holiday. There was a choice of main and 3 à la carte restaurants, all of which have a wide range of delicious food. I've read comments about the food being the same each night, but with every type of fish, meat, pasta, and vegetables this gave us the opportunity to try a different dish each night. The evening entertainment was mainly focused on audience participation, which actually was quite funny to watch. Our tour agent Cesar was extremely polite and helpful, and we booked for a couple of trips, the Zip-line and El Limon Waterfalls, both were very enjoyable. The best part was the fantastic folks we met from Canada, and I’m sure we’ll stay in contact over the years. Normally we wouldn’t go to the same location twice as we like to see different places around the world, but we enjoyed this vacation so much we may well return one day.
We recently stayed at this hotel during March break. We upgraded to the Golden Club and enjoyed the larger suite in the lower three story complex. This suite was large, comfortable bed, nicely finished , large balcony, not brand new, but well maintained. The bathroom had beautiful tiled walls and floors, large shower, lots of water pressure and hot water. The towels were changed every day as were the bed sheets. Luz helped us organize a cab to Las Terranas and took great care of us as a concierge.The animation team made us feel very welcome and entertained with games and activities, Darts, Ping Pong, Spanish lessons, Crazy Games. The staff gave their all, Miguel, Jimmy, Esther, Caroline, Bulgaria, Jose, to name a few.The food was well organized, of course many items were the same each day, but they also had themes that changed regularly and the quality was good. The specialty restaurants provided an excellent atmosphere, good service, and great food.The pools were clean and we had lots of choices for seating. There are four different pools, two different beaches and lots of available activities.The view from anywhere in the hotel is fabulous since it is situated on top of a hill. The town side is a little noisey.
Just got back from a wonderful weeks vacation at the gran bahia principe cayacoa- everyone/everything was just the BEST-- nice quiet resort for relaxation- food is great- service and people the best ever... NOT ONE NEGATIVE remark from either myself or my daughter- WE SHALL BE BACK...scenery is unreal... loved every min there....
I stayed here for a few night, along with my colleague, I stayed in room 427 and arrived on 16th March, my colleague was in room 428. When I arrived at the hotel the reception, as usual, were very friendly and welcoming. When I got to my room the views were to die for!!!The food in the hotel is faultless and if anyone on here says that the food is terrible, well, please invite me to your home as Id love to see what you have to eat!The food selection is fantastic and I looked forward to meal times - one slight criticism (very trivial): the pizza one day was sticking to the pizza pan, I was trying to get the pizza out of the pan (whilst the staff member was watching me) with the serving tongs but could not manage it....as I walked away the staff member then decided to cut it up and release the pizza from the pan...think it might have been nice if he helped me!apart from the silly, trivial, pizza thing, I love the staff here, all of them are amazing and to me, this shows how professional and organized the management are..perfect! Staff morale and how staff treat their guests all filters down from the managers in my opinion, that's why they are all so good.The hotel is spotless and I cant wait to go back. I work in tourism and I have stayed in over 600 hotels, the Gran Bahia hotels are my favorite - been on holiday to the Gran Bahia Principe in La Romana and loved it there too.Well done to all the staff, I like your hotel so much that I have decided to become a member and my first choice of hotel options will certainly lie with you.Samana is a lovely destination, yes, the journey is quite far from Puerto Plata if you are travelling from there but, you should obviously be aware of the transfer time before you arrive!Enjoy your holiday experience here, you wont be disappointed.
The place is very clean, the staff is friendly and the food is good. There is not as wide a selection of food as one might see in similar resorts in Riviera Maya, but it's still quite good. The pool are nice a clean. The bar service could be better in terms of doing rounds around the pools.It's more of an adult place, the beach is not so easily accessible for families with children.The village of Samana is not particularly interesting.
