Grand Bahia Principe Punta Cana

The Grand Bahia Principe Punta Cana is a huge complex with a prime beachfront address. Expect everything from sea-view pools and gourmet restaurants to merengue and salsa sessions.

This place doesn’t do things by halves – it lines up 3 pools, 6 restaurants and tons of sports and activities. Plus, the whole complex is pulled up against a white-sand beach.

Bedroom-wise, junior suites are the standard here. They’re really spacious, and each one has a whirlpool bath and a roomy terrace. Golden Club rooms get add-ons like cocktails and 24-hour room service, too.

One of the best hotels I have stayed at!!!

Loved our holiday here, the place is absolutely spotless. The food beautiful and the staff nice and friendly. We went in a party of 42 for a wedding and everyone enjoyed it. The food was far better than what I expected with it been all inclusive. The buffet is very good and has theme nights. The staff are very attentive and friendly. It's a big resort but easy to get about on the little shuttle buses. it's located on a beautiful beach and has 3 massive pool areas, one of which is next to the beach this is the busiest but you can always get a sunbed. I'm very hard to please and enjoyed my stay here very much we would defiantly return More


Large and noisy!

The territory is extremely large, and the distances are daunting. We booked Hacienda suits, hoping we'd get some extra service, but that was just a waste of money, except that we were a bit closer to the beach and had a separate check-in area with a mini-bar. You have to wait for a little shuttle train or order a bell boy (and tip him) for a ride on a cart to get anywhere! Otherwise, it's a good 20-30 min walk from the beach to the main building (entertainment and dining). I kid you not! everything is far! The rooms were outdated, but kept relatively clean. We had an incurring problem with ants, they had a path directly through our room, they were everyone, even in my baby's pacifier. Staff tried to resolve, but never did. We did travel with a child. Our requests (that started months in advance) were not met regarding getting adjourning rooms *(to help care for the infant). Our party was separated, and moved several times to get closer to each other. Their excuse was "they cannot reserve rooms or put on hold, and assign rooms based on availability only". Other than that, the staff loved our blond blue eyed animated baby, and everyone wanted to take pictures with her, or talk to her or touch her, very helpful, no dirty looks if she cried or threw things around. It was funny, but great to see us treated well. Very kid-friendly resort. The beach was great, but too crowded. All seats with shade were reserved by 7am with towels, but no people around till 10am or later! So rude! Problems with beach towel exchanges. Lines everywhere. Food and drinks were just ok, nothing special. Have to tip everywhere if want to get recognized or remembered or get special service (would run down to the nearby bar and get us a special mixed drink while at the restaurant, or get us a whole bottle of wine on a table if tip well enough etc). You feel like they expect it every step, with every single drink, every single move-even in the beach restrooms if they were passing out the paper after you wash hands (i mean, whaaat?). But at the same time, staff was changing so often, that to be honest, we stopped caring at the end. The biggest challenge while we were there around New Years, everyone seemed to be sick around the resort. Some serious flu was going around, and somehow spread like crazy. It was severe, 5 out of 6 of our party have gotten seriously ill, including the baby. Had to go see a local doctor, who did not do anything, just said to drink juice with vitamin C or go in town to emergency room at the hospital. The pharmacy item choices were limited (including diapers and meds), but plenty of giftshops and art fair vendors otherwise if you like shopping. We did not care much about the entertainment, it was a huge place with music that was too loud. Free wi-fi at the main lobby and live bands and dances there were great. Overall, it was an ok trip. Staff were very friendly and that made a difference! Bavaros are famous for their excellent beaches too!More

This was our birthday celebration trip together. Our first time to DR. Room smelled of mildew 24/7. the walls and floors stayed moist. **This tops our ruined vacation-THEY WENT IN OUR ROOM AND STOLE OUR VALUABLES!!!- Thank God we were left with our passports to return home. They had no answers for us but an investigation and police report. Lesson learned: bring locks for myself (I learned from a trip years back how much easy access resorts have access to safes), smile but trust NO ONE!, find a waterproof bag to take with you everywhere if you plan to be in the water for your valuables, unfortunately I will no longer accept room service unless supervised. I was trying to relax and vacation. So this is what it has come toMore

Great holiday.

Visited from October 1-8 for our anniversary. Diamond Club - we booked diamond club & wouldn't spend the extra money on it again. We had a private check in, robes, safe in the room was free and an extra a la carte booking. Not worth it to us. And I would book the Punta Cana next time because it's a bit cheaper and it's all the same on this huge resort. This resort is massive and luckily we were visiting during a quiet time. We always found a lounger by the pool or on the beach at any time of day. Make sure to visit the sports/karaoke bar. Say hi to Lisa, Juan and Jose Luis. Our glasses were never empty and some people are really talented. There is a marketplace, shops, casino, etc and on Friday nights, there is a market set up by the main theatre. Food was good at the buffet. We really liked the snack bar buffet for lunch by the beach. Note that shirts and shoes are not required in any restaurant by the pool or beach for lunch. Pretty disgusting. We really enjoyed the Japanese a la carte and the Garden Grill for steak but not the rude waiter. We also ate at the French and Mediterranean, which were ok. Wifi- you get 60 minutes per room daily in the lobby, but I heard some people say that they went to the other lobbies and got another hour. If you don't mind wasting an hour or more, sit through the privilege club timeshare and get a week of wifi for free. Resort was very well kept and massive. I felt that with the size of this resort, we didn't experience the same interaction with the staff as in smaller resorts. Thankfully there were trollies that ran very frequently. Very well run resort, but again this wasn't the busy season. We've already booked a stay in Mexico at a Bahia for our next trip.More
