We went to Gran Bahia with another couple, all of us in our mid to late 20's from November 29 - December 6th. We had an amazing time, and in my view this hotel is worthy of the 5 star rating for a tropical destination in a developing Country. To begin, a couple of weeks before our vacation to Punta...

Bahia Principe is a beautiful hotel that is so clean and well run. The service is exceptional. The beach is very relaxing and beautiful. The pools are lovely to swim in being very large, clean, and numerous. Food is very bountiful and always available. Weather is fantastic. I would recommend it as a good place to relax and unwind.

We stayed at this resort from November 16-23 and it was Wounderful. We upgraded to Gold club for $40.00 and it was well worth it. We got to keep the robes and slippers they provided and having the roomservice for breakfast became one of our favorite memories. Our rooms were spotless and incredibly comfortable. I have never been able to...

Stayed at the Baja Principe over the Thanksgiving Holidays. The resort and the staff were very good but some things need to be looked at. I upgraded to Golden to get closer to the beach and more reservations at the theme resturants. Since the resort is so spread out you need to walk or ride the trams either to go...

We just returned from Gran Bahia Principe on the 16 of Nov., 2006. There were 2 couples, and 4 teenage girls, two 18 year olds and a 15 and 14 year old. So you can imagine how important having a good resort would be to our group!! The flight down was relatively fine except the seats are small and super...

We had heard so many mixed things about the DR. Some good and some bad. Well I can say this about the "Grand Bahia Pricipe" we had an amazing time. The weather was great, the people were friendly and what an amaizing beach. We are going back in April to get married.
