I am a little behind on my review this time around, but better late then never. We went to the Gran Bahia from April 9-23rd. We were there for our wedding with 24 other people attending. I will break down this hotel into a couple of sections to make it easier. Wedding: They did an absolutely fantastic job. It rained...

We stayed at this resort the week of April 17-24, for a total of 7 days. Please keep in mind that we went to this resort as a couple, to get away from the "rat-race", relax, and enjoy our surroundings. We are not hard to please….but we feel that the 5 star rating is a bit over-reaching. While we do...

This was the first time my family went to an all inclusive. We couldn't believe how clean it was... the maids were constantly cleaning on top of the cleaning. Every day there was someone cleaning the walkways with a scrub brush and power washer even though it was not dirty. The public washrooms were so private and comfortable and they...

My girlfriend and I spent a week at Gran Bahia Principe from April 6th to April 13th 2006. We absolutely loved the resort! The ocean was of a heavenly turquoise color, the beach was incredibly beautiful with its white sand and groomed palm trees. The pools were equally nice, but didn't spend much time there since we are more beach...
