My wife, son and I were guests here during Thanksgiving week in November. However, before going into my detailed review, I just wanted to provide you with one really helpful tip when it comes to staying connected to the internet. The resort provides a limited amount of free wifi access in the lobby each day whereas the rest of the... More

This is the third time at this wonderful resort and it remains excellent. The resort is large but trolleys run for. The reception to the beach and back every few minutes. The rooms are large with very comfortable beds, coffee making facilities and fridges stocked daily. All the restaurants are fabulous especially the Japanese tempanyaki which was great fun to...

Yearly vacation and only disappointment was the rain. Had a great time at this resort, would suggest to anyone to upgrade to the GOLDEN (gives a few extra perks: one being inclusion of In-Room Safe). Buffet and snack bars are what you would expect: something things good, some not so good, but you are sure to find something that you'll... More

Beautiful well manicured resort with several pools, beach access, live entertainment, and LOTS of free alcohol. However, as the saying goes, "all that glitters is not gold". While Grand Bahia Principe's strength lies in the appearance of the resort, it unfortunately lacks the same effort in providing basic amenities such as food, wash cloths, beach towels, and effective air conditioning....

Food was pretty good but there were lots of issues with the resort that added up to a poor review. Specialty restaurants were difficult to book. We arrived on a Monday and were told the earliest available was Saturday and 9 PM. The Room: A/C was not cold enough. You had to pay extra for the in-room safe, the refrigerator... More

Just recently returned from a great week at this resort on a girls trip. Overall, the resort was good even with the not so good weather we had for quite a bit of the trip. It rained quite a bit and having umbrellas available to us was super useful! We were part of the 'luxury golden' group so our rooms... More
