This was the second time my wife and I chose Bahia hotel in Punta Cana. This year we stayed in Esmeralda part, a more luxurious part for adults only. The area is really nice, you didn't feel overwhelmed by the size of the whole complex. Rooms were clean and comfortable, we got 2 big beds in the room, not sure...

I'm not sure what constitutes 5 star luxury for the Dominican, but this hotel failed to reach anywhere near my expectations of a Luxury 5 star resort. My belief is that if anything that calls itself luxury 5 star, then their attention to detail has to be 100 % spot on. Anyone can put fancy furniture in the reception area,...

We spent the first night at Turquesa. Went to a 'hotel presentation' the next day and visited Esmeralda. Rooms are nicer, food is better. The beach is right there, unlike Turquesa where we have to take a golf cart shuttle to get to the beach. Only downside is being talked into a 30 week privilege club membership. But we plan...

The property is huge, but our area was a small pocket tucked between the beach and pool. An all adult resort was a first for me. It was fantastic. Details cater to an all adult ambiance.
