I stayed at the Gran Bahia Principe Punta Cana Dec 24-31st 2006, travelling with friends. We are all in our mid 20s. I have travelled to other Caribbean hotspots (Cancun, Varadero, Puerta Plata) and had a wonderful stay here. Let me begin by saying that this hotel is indeed a 5 star resort. The grounds are always clean, food was...

My husband and I traveled to the Dominican on a slightly belated honeymoon. I know this review is about the hotel, however, I would like to say a brief note about USA3000. The flight was only 3.5-4 hours, however, we were served a meal, snack, movies, and multiple passes with the drink cart. You don't really see that anymore and...

We just got back from this great hotel. We had been to the one they have in Mexico so we knew what to expect. We were upgraded to the Club Premier. They had overbooking so they were looking for volunteers to leave the room one day, in exchange you got a free 2 days tour to Saona Island, Altos de...

Travelled to the Bahia Principe from Dec10-17. Beautiful resort, always clean, decent room and nice beach. Plenty of food to choose from for even the picky eater. Try the Japanese restaurant, excellent food. Be careful of the beach BBQ as a dinner option, they were grilling shrimp and chicken(what i though was a chunk of fish) skewers Luckily, i asked...

We vactioned the week before Thanksgiving. My husband, two 14 year old girls, and myself had a great time. We had requested adjoining rooms and were told by the travel agent they were not available.

We loved this resort, it is big and the beds were a little hard but it was great. Every night we looked forward to the a la carte's so much that we returned to a few of them.

We tend to stay in 5-star hotels whenever possible, and thought the Gran Bahia would be acceptable (and this understanding that Carribean hotels are not of the same quality as North American or European properties). Problems were not major, but extremely flagrant considering that this property is marketed as a premium hotel with all amenities. Particuarly irksome was the accumulation...
