Bahia Principe is smaller than any resort that we have visited. If you wish to lay back and totally relax this is the ideal place. If you need lots of action then it might not suit your needs. Usually we rise early to get to the pool to find a lounge chair but the resort was not crowded so this was not an issue. We spent our day laying around the pool while joining in the activities that the animation staff provided. Cheyni, Anyeli and Yamilca kept us busy with Spanish lessons, bowling, darts, mini golf and trying to learn the dance they did before we played bingo. We enjoyed their youth and enthusiasm. The staff and service throughout the resort were excellent. The buffet offers enough variety to keep one satisfied so that your clothes are tight when you leave. Don't miss the seafood extravaganza. I marveled at the presentation of the food. My favorite a la carte was the Italian restaurant. Again I was impressed by the presentation of the food and it tasted as good as it looked. We enjoyed the entertainment that was offered in the evening. For a small resort they do a great job.
Had a wonderful time at this resort.The staff were outstanding and the animation team Cheyni, and Coconut man Nell were the life of the party. Thanks also to life guard Neil who showed me how to dance sexy for my wife, too bad every one else was watching. Also would like to say thanks to our butler Ramone who couldn't do enough for us.
Arriving at the Samana International Airport it is about a 70 minute bus ride. The airport is small but service was pretty good.Arriving at the hotel, we knew about the stairs, there are many. But elevators to the rooms were a good sight to see.Check in and out was efficient. The hotel has 149 rooms and during our stay, Nov 26 to Dec 3, it was half empty.Staff at the hotel were alway smiling, except for the front desk person who always seemed to be in bad humour. Staff were always cleaning, this had to be cleanest BHP I've been in.The animation team made the week, great time with them. Jose at the bar, one of the nicest guys you will meet, when he was not working, the service suffered. When he was working the drinks were awesome and he always had a smile.Junior, he loves his job was great. Nell, great guy loves the pool water, both part of the animation team, great job guys.There was some damage from Hurricane Maria - a few tree branches, the wharf out to the sea was devastated but they were working on repairing it for the upcoming wedding season.The beach as you see from pictures is small, but there are chairs. We brought snorkeling equipment but the water was full of sediment so made things difficult to see. The water/beach is similar to what you see in Puerto Plata, not Punta Cana.Because the hotel was half full, we found out after the fact that the buffet for dinner was only open on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Tuesday. So you had to eat at one of the three a la carte and if no reservation you were stuck going to the Brazilian. Food was ok there. Buffet food was fresh and good and various theme nights when it was open.You may be asked if you want to purchase VIP Lounge tickets at the airport for $25 US. They make it seem that the airport is not air conditioned and there are no chairs and that only one restaurant so they suggest you buy the tickets. You do get 4 drinks if you can down them quickly. Well the airport is air conditioned and there are many seats. Don't get sucked in, unless you want the drinks, lol.Only air conditioned spots in the resort is your room and the Italian a la carte. It was a very hot week,so beware if you need to eat in cooler spots.Overall, the hotel is very nice, 5 stars. Ps. Don't leave anything of value in your suitcases when leaving to go home at the airport. We were one of the last people to get in the plane and others pointed out seeing the baggage handlers rifling through suitcases.We have visited many luxury Bhp before, adult only, We however will not be returning as we enjoy being in the ocean in the morning and pool in the afternoon. The beach is ranked low for us, otherwise I would have given 5 stars for the resort.
Second time in this hotel and probably I will return many times. The quality of everything in this hotel is exceptional and the service excellent. Despite not a very good weather the stay was very good. The beach is small but water is very nice to stay in and to swim. and from the rooms and deck there is a view on Cayo Levantado with a more luxury hotel (also Bahia Principe) but you do not need more than this one unless you like to walk - definitively it is not a hotel for walkers but rather for "lazy" tourists.Pity that there is no roof on the animation cafe-bar - when raining....
Very welcoming, charming, luxury all inclusive resort. Amazing food and view. Courteous staff and very well maintained spacious rooms. Own private deck and amazing pool views. Great wifi connectivity.
