Grand Bahia Principe Cayacoa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Animation: Major shout out to Amanda and Miguel on the Animation team for all the entertainment they provided. Night time shows were funny and entertaining however the content of the Miss Bahia Night was very questionable. Bars: Defintely go visit Victor at the Premium Bar/Lobby Bar - he's awesome!Food: The buffet was very good, lots of selection and varied at every meal. The a la Cartes were also good. The best in our opinion was the ItalianRooms: Our room was very spacious and clean. As VIP guests our fridge was stocked with extra items and our beds were turned down every night. The sea view room was worth the upgrade!Service: We had a problem with our/kids rooms our first night, but Danny at the front desk was able to help resolve our problem and upgraded us to VIP! Much appreciated and shows the quality of customer service. All staff were very friendly and made an effort to get to know you. Brenda at the buffet restaurant smiled the entire week :) Pool: The main pool was the easiest one to access because it was on the same level as the lobby/main building. This pool was clean and well maintained in the mornings, but throughout the day became dirty and was a major turn-off. Better pool maintainance is needed throughout the day - simply skimming the dirt would be helpful. There were other pools scattered through out the resort but were too far from our rooms so we didn't visit them much.Beach: The beach was interesting. You have to take a 6 storey elevator to beach level. It's not very big but there were always plenty of chairs available to relax. It was well maintained by the grounds crew who worked hard in the heat to keep the beach free from debris. We did watch the security guards get paid to let some "locals" have access to the beach. Samana City: The resort has amazing views of the city across the waters and offers free trolley rides into the city every hour. We took the 3 minute trolley ride to check it out and were greeted by every shop owner begging you to visit their stores. We walked along the streets and returned to our resort as this was not something we enjoyed. Location/Accessibility: The resort is very unique because it's situated on a hill 6 storeys above sea level making the views absolutely gorgeous from all sides. However, if you have mobility issues, you will struggle with the number of stairs to get to the different areas/levels of the resort. Going down is not so bad, but going back up in 32 degree weather is not fun at all. There are trolleys that could cart you around but not on a schedule, you have to find a staff member to call for a trolley which is less than convenient.Overall we had a very relaxing family vacation.
We visited here for two weeks! Absolutely amazing. Staff are all lovely, rooms are so clean, food was superb - something which we never expected with it being an all inclusive. So many options for vegan/vegetarians! Soya milk provided which made a lovely change as I normally take my own! Will be coming back in the future! Miss this place!
We spent a week at this resort in late July. The views were fabulous from our room a pretty well everywhere else. The view across the Bay at Samana at night are breathtaking. We had a gorgeous view of the pool an Bay from our room as well. The property is immaculately kept, and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. The food was very good at the buffet as well as at the three specialty restaurants. Because it is low season, the resort was only a third filled. Therefore, only one of the three specialty restaurants was open each night. An elevator takes you down to the main beach where there were plenty of comfortable lounges and lots of shade.A shuttle is available for transportation to the other beach and pool. The only drawback on the entire trip was the long, extremely hot experience at the airport coming home. This are is open and there was one little fan running. It was like a torture chamber. Once inside the waiting are there was much appreciated air conditioning
This is a great hotel to go with family or significant other. It is very relaxed, staff are super friendly, specially the entertainment team, AMANDA AND MIGUEL are the best team ever. They make you stay very fun.
I am avid traveller and I always make it a point to enjoy my vacation. This one was quite different as it the resort was very close to nature...The facilities are well-kept, being a Grand Bahia property. The staff are very accommodating and the food was great.I love that Grand Bahia Principe Cayacoa has access to the Samana Bridge (Bridge to Nowhere) so we could do our daily 3-4 km walk/ hike in the early mornings right before the Breakfast Buffet.The beach is not superb (it was only a short stretch) but the sand was very fine and the water had just the right temperature.You have to see the whole place and use all the amenities to experience it wholly.Improvement may still be done with the nightly entertainment and the dancing. I expected more Bachata dance courses, more Merengue nights but the staff werent able to build the excitement for it.Overall - it was a very good opportunity to unwind and just enjoy!Best with spouses, family and friends!
