It is a beatifully maintained resort, the pools are kept very clean and the service was friendly every where we went. We...

We stayed over Christmas and enjoyed our time at Gran Bahia. The food was excellent and the variety was huge. We took along 4 kids (10 - 16 years and they all found something to eat). Both local and international food was found at the buffet. The service was excellent and the settings high class with clean table linens on...

The resort is very well cared for. It is clean well maintained but is huge. It is so big that you have to take a trolley from the restaurants / reception to the beach! Food was also great. Many restaurants to choose from but you have to book (and waiting line for that) early in the week in order to...

We have returned from a week at the Gran Bahia Principe in Punta Cana. The resort is huge; however there are trams to travel throughout the resort. My husband and I had booked Club Diamond, however we were put into the Premier section. I don't know if there is much difference between the two sections. Premier had a private pool,...

My husband and I stayed at the Gran Bahia for two weeks over the Christmas/New Years holiday. We have traveled extensively (Mexico, Caribbean, Hawaii, Europe, cruises, USA, etc.), but this was our first (and probably last) time to the DR. The Good: The room, buildings and grounds were very clean and well maintained (except the pools), the weather was warm,...

I don't understand how people can criticize this hotel. We had nothing but exceptional service and amazing food. The beach is beautiful and the hotel itself is magnificant. The only draw back is that there isn't a whole lot to do at night. There is a discoteque and a few bars, but not much on resort. Other than that, fantastic...

We just got back from the Bahia and cannot stop talking about it! I cannot believe how incredibly clean and lovely this vacation spot is. From the moment we arrived we were in need of nothing.
