Thanks to all of you who shared your experiences with me before I left. Reveiwing 100+ postings helped me make the most of my trip! We returned on November 12 /05. We had a really good time at this resort. Of my 6 visits to the Carribean in the past 10 years, I would rank this one the highest. This...

Just returned having stayed for 2 weeks. We had a great time. The hotel was spotless, cleaning was continuous, even the toilets were constantly cleaned. The food in main buffet area was very good. Always plenty of choice, although at times not hot enough. There was meat being cooked whilst you waited. My only complaint is regarding the rudeness and...

My husband and I along with our 11 year old son travelled to this resort with much anticipation. My husband had no complaints. I on the other hand was disgusted by how dirty the room was. The fact that not all staff were as a friendly as they should be and the continual lack of towels in our room. Although...

My husband, myself and 10 other family members have just returned to Canada from the Bahia Principe this past Monday, October 31, 2005. We travelled there to attend the wedding of a cousin. Although there were some difficulties related to the wedding ceremony (ie., we couldn't find the minister for a short time), the vacation was amazing. Staff are fair,...

We went to the bahia principe in September this year. We had a really lovely time. Hotel was gorgeous as was the dominican as a whole. Would advise anyone to go on the feestyle catamaran trip, was amazing. We also went on the outback jeep safari, that was ok but a bit 'set up' if you know what i mean!...

We went on our honeymoon and like many of the other people there we were supposed to go to Mexico but were forced to switch due to the huricane. We went with Sunwing vacations and we were not impressed. We had paid $ hundreds extra to guarantee an upgraded room with a queen bed with ocean view. At check in...

Me and my boyfriend went to the Dominican for the first time, last year in march. We stayed at the Bahia Principe San Juan. I must say it was a great vacation. When we arrived, we were checked in in about 10 minutes and the staff helped us get our luggage into our room. The room was very clean, exactly...

My girlfriend and myself returned home from the Bahia Principe on the 26/10 and can honestly say it was the best holiday we have both had. The food was terrific in the Buffet restaurant and was blown away by the variety each evening. The Mexican, Italian and Seafood restaurants were very nice, but our favourite was the Mediterranean and would...
