I agree that this hotel would be stared at a 3/4 in any other country but this is a third world country and the view from the coach would make you appreicate...

I have a physical disability, and use a wheelchair, and the whole place was accesible to me, and the staff was amazing, and always looking to help. The beach was very nice, however finding an unoccupied lounge took...

We came back yesterday after staying 26/07 - 09/08 as a party of four friends celebrating their 25th Wedding Anniversaries. We booked months in advance so had seen all the reviews here and decided we would add our experience to all the others and let people judge for themselves like we have done. The Bahia Principe is simply fantastic and...
