Our rooms were ready and clean upon arrival - didn't see any bugs in the rooms all week. We received fresh towels morning and evening and the beds were made up a.m. and p.m. as well. Food was plentiful...

My family and I recently spent two weeks at Bahia. This resort seems to be okay for the novice traveler but if you are a seasoned traveller and used to 4-1/2 to 5 stars this place falls well below a 3 star. This resort is extremely old. I am guessing 30 years or more. The resort is so far out...

First off... I have to say that before my boyfriend and I went on our trip I got very scared reading these reviews. I guess you can always find things to complain about, some people find it easier then others! This was our first All-Inclusive trip, and our first trip to the Dominican and we loved it! It was a...

Rooms: very basic, noisy. No-way 4-star. TV. 2-beers and a coke and fanta a day in the fridge. only a few rooms have views. Clientele: English chip-eating lads and couples and Americans of the same ilk. Hotel common areas: no soul whatsoever. Often loud music, or games by the pool. Food: lots of it but bland in the burret, restaurants...

Normally we are not the type to complain about things that can and do go wrong on vacations but our recent experience at the Bahia Principe and with Sunwing Airlines can not go without some recourse. This resort should not be classified as a GOLD resort. We arrived to find nothing in the mini bar in one of the 2...
