Feb.24th-Mar.3rd My husband and I just got back from the Bahia Principe, and after staying for one week, we are missing it VERY MUCH!!! As the other reviews state, the resort itself is extremely large and beautifully landscaped. There is a shuttle that brings you back and forth to wherever you'd like to go, and you never have to wait...

I'd never been out of Canada (not even to the US!) so this was a trip of a lifetime for me. A friend from Ottawa and I (from Saskatchewan) travelled via Air Canada Vacations to Punta Cana on January 20, returning February 4. The airport itself was a real eye-opener, it is an open air, thatched roof building. Unlike our...

I'll keep this short. We stayed at the resort from Feb 22 - Mar 1 2007. Loved every minute of it. It was spotless, the rooms where spacious, the food was good (considering it is mostly buffet), and the grounds beautiful. The standout is the beach - gorgeous white sand and turquoise water. The beach goes forever and if you...

Food - plenty to pick from (book your favorite restaurants as soon as you arrive to be sure you reserve your time) Entertainment - Not for young partiers. Personally, I found the entertainment very lame. The theater is more for the older crowd. I am 28 yrs. old for those interested. Staff - very friendly, but most employees do not...

We vacationed here from Jan31/07-Feb14/07. During our vacation we never really had a complaint about anything. We had absolutely beautiful weather for our whole trip. The rooms are clean and spacious, the food was plentiful, having lots to choose from, and of course the drinks...they are always good. I found that the staff were very professional at all times, providing...

At the Bahia Principe you will get more than what you expected based on what you pay. This is how I sum it up for you because your perception of enjoyment at a resort is directly joined at the hip with the perception of value. You will get: - an amazing beach - large clean pools - huge luxurious room...

We stayed at The Grand Bahia Principe Punta Cana Feb, 19-26th. We were a group of 4 adults 40-45 years of age. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly. The resort is very well taken care of and comes as advertised as in most of these reviews. We had ala carte at the Japanese, French, and Garden Grill (steak). All were excellant...

My husband and I and our 2 children, 8 & 11, stayed at the resort for one week and it is beautiful. Unfortunately the week that we were there we had 2 full days of rain and two days of overcast weather, but nothing we could do about that. The service is outstanding at the hotel in every area.

Where do i start everything was fantastic. The hotel grounds were beautiful. Everywhere you looked there were gardeners keeping everything trimmed and tidy. There was not one piece of rubbish on the resort everywhere was clean. The rooms were very nice but i wouldnt say they were 5* standard. We had a room with one king size bed and had...

I will try to keep my review short and sweet. My husband and I travel all the time and this was our second visit to Punta Cana. We travelled with my teenage son and two other families.
