Just got back from spending two glorious weeks at Bahia Principe! Me and my partner had an amazing time I must admit reading some of the reviews before we went wasn't a good idea as people seem to think every tiny little detail should be perfect!! I agree that the resort isn't a 4* but we wasn't expecting that judging...

I have no idea what people expect when they go to these little countries. We have been to Bahia Principe twice and we are heading back this year (March 2006). Now that should give you some idea as to the quality of this place. I would not think about going back somewhere for the third time if I didn't enjoy...

This was my first visit to a country outside of Europe, and I went with a friend who had already been to the Domican last year, to a 5 star resort somewhere along the North Coast. Although the hotel looked gorgeous in the brochure, I was still a little worried, especially about the heat and the long haul flight, but...

We were a family of 4 that stayed at the Bahia the last week of July. What I cannot understand is what people's idea of a 4 star hotel is. I found this place to be a "3" on a good day. The rooms were in need of some work. Cracked floors, holes in the walls and cockroaches does not...

Anybody who writes a bad review about this hotel has rocks in their head! I have read numerous reviews about how the beach isn't great, the pool too loud, blah blah.......but really, take no notice. The beach may not have golden white sands and clear blue sea, but it's still wonderful - the picturesque palm trees, the beautiful view. And...

Just back - after spending 2 fantastic weeks there. I have to say read some reviews before going and I was a little apprehensive - Forget the bad reviews. Ok so the room is basic but do you really want to spend your holiday in your room(sad). This holiday is what you make it - and is suitable for families,...

The hotel is beautiful. The rooms are clean and the food is excellent. However, if you want to have a good time (depends on your criteria of good time), since the resort is in the middle of nowhere, you would have to go with a big group of people to have fun with (i went wiht my brother and his...

“Stay away from the jungle (building D and H) and not too far from the buffet. Perfect location would be building A/B/C/E/F/G 1-4 (e.g. B-1).”
