My 2 daughters (12 and 9) and I just returned from the Bahia Principe in Dominican Republic. We had a super vacation. Those who don't are those who never travel. The pool is BEAUTIFUL and the beach is huge and the water warm. The staff hardly speak English but they try their best. The a la carte restaurants are good,...

A group of us (6 ladies) were to have gone to Mexico but the hurricane sent us in a different direction. We booked last minute through Sunwing Vacations. We were delayed leaving Toronto due to a mechanical problem with the plane. Sunwing put us up in great Hotel Rooms, bought our breakfast and lunch and gave each of us a...

How much you enjoy this resort will depend on your prior experience with all inclusives and how much you paid for your vacation. $1100 or less is fine but more than that and you may be disappointed. The resort is 11 years old now and not much has been done to update it. I would rate it a 3+ star,...

Have just returned from our christmas and new year break at the Bahia. There were 4 adults who had all been to Dom Rep before but not this hotel. The food was ok and there was plenty of choice but it was never hot. The evening entertainment was as you would expect if you've travelled all inclusive before...rubbish. Cheap and...
