Like everyone else says, the beach here is amazing. It was defanutely the best part of our trip. It is very relaxing but you do have to get up at 6am to reserve a good seat. The water is very busy with boats going by, so the noise can be a bit much at times. The pools are VERY busy....

I went in the past to Barcelo Bavaro Beach, Grand Paradise, Barcelo in Mayan Riviera and Breezes in Varadero Cuba. I will never go back to Cuba. My boyfriend and I (late 40) had liked very much Barcelo in Mayan Riviera but we would say that the Gran Bahia Principe is much better. The beach is nicer, lots of places...

I want to start by thanking all those that did write reviews on this hotel as they were great in helping us decide where to stay. To put things in our perspective, 5 years ago we went to St. Lucia and stayed at a Sandals. That hotel was also a "5 star" and cost about double what we just spent...

My husband and I stayed at this resort for our Honeymoon April 29-May 6. We have never been away in the 7 years we have been together and I have to say that we had a fantastic time. We arrived to the hotel and got great service from the very beginning. We got up to our room and found balloons,...

My boyfriend and I just returned from Punta Cana. Though I do have some complaints, they certainly wouldn’t stop me from returning. Airport: The handlers are very aggressive. Just be firm with them and they will leave you alone. Room: We stayed in villa #10, which along with #20, is closest to the beach. After reading many reviews, I requested,...

My husband and I (late 20's) stayed at the BP Punta Cana from April 22 - 29/ 06. We had stayed at the Bahia Principe Tulum in Mexico for two weeks in 2005 and loved it, so decided to give the Bahia a try in a different country. We booked through Transat Vacations and got "Club Golden" privileges which are...

We just arrived back from the Gran Bahia Principe Punta Cana on May 5, 2006. We had a fantastic time. We stayed in unit 12 which is half way between the lobby and the beach. I asked for the 3rd floor to avoid bugs and mosquitos but still managed to get about 20 bites within the first two nights. I...

Just returned from a six day stay. This was my first time at an all-inclusive and only my third beach resort vacation (previous trips were at the Hyatt in Grand Cayman and the Grand Hyatt in Bali).

Stayed at the Bahia Principe from April 22- April 28. I have been to Punta Cana before, so I thought I knew what to expect. But I was pleasantly surprised how much nicer this hotel was than the other one I have previously stayed at. I'll now answer all the questions that I had before going to the resort: Weather-...
