We had a nice king size bed and the air conditioner worked but not well. We did have some small ants in bathroom - could be due to the flowers they put in there...

We have just returned from a week's holiday at the Bahia Principe. Had a great time. On the transfer coach you are allocated your rooms and your all inclusive bands which is good cos it saved time on arrival at the hotel. Our room was average with air con which was a real godsend! The La Bistro restaurant was OK...

First thing to know is that this resort is totaly isolated...the closest city is Rio San Juan (about 15 min)...and there are no other bars/clubs other than on the resort. The only thing that I did not enjoy...

The resort was amazing, clean food was good in every resto. Water was pretty clean, and the staff was great. Everyone tells you not to go on the trips with the people that sell it on the beach but go for it! We had an amazing time with Freddy. One of our friends went with the hotel, paid so much...
