Just back from a week at the Gran Bahia. I rely on these reviews when selecting my vacation resort, so thought I should return the favor. My husband & I travel often and have stayed at many all- inclusive resorts throughout the tropics. This was our first time in the Dominican Republic. It's a beautiful place. The water was beautiful...

Our party of four arrived at the Bahia Principe January 17 to 24, 2007. We read numerous reviews, all we can say is - this is a 5 star resort!

First off - please do not believe any negative reviews of this hotel on this site. People will complain just because they have an outlet to complain and they have nothing better to do.

This was my first real vacation and although I thought the hotel was amazing there were a few things I would have liked to been better: 1. The food. Don't get me wrong I'm not a picky guy when it comes to food and I'll eat just about anything (and based on what my scale said after I got back...

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful resort on Jan 16-23rd. We enjoyed our stay, and coudn't think of any complaints with this resort. We were in the Premiere section which is futherest away from the beach, however close the main lobby and the big buffets. Perfect area for nice quiet days, and you get your own lobby with...

I ignored several negative reviews, thinking of that saying "you can't please everyone all of the time", and that "surely it couldn't be that bad", and decided to choose this resort because it is fairly new, and it looked beautiful. Well NEVER again. We were soon made to regret this decision. I know this review is long, but PLEASE take...

My daughters and I just returned from this hotel where we stayed for five days. I would NOT recommend this hotel mainly for one reason ...and that is that we have returned with mosquito bites all over us. Our room was infested with them and had to have our rooms fumigated.
