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.

Olympus tours at Grand Bahia Prencipe
Hi, would like to say big "Thank you" to our tour operator Natalia Z. from Olympus Tours in Grand Bahia Principe Punta Cana. She did a great job by helping us during our stay there in August 2014. She did a great job by helping us with our Tours, airport transfers. Made the airport transfers painless. Helped with the translations between us an hotel staff. Hotel itself are HUGE !!!! You need to travel in a small trains between reception/lobby/restaurant area and beach and beachfront units. Food is fresh and good. Rooms are clean and airy. Pools were cleaned everyday. Beach was clean but not too much of a shade. Staff members very polite. The only rule I didn't like is wait around 2 hours to get a room. But otherwise the hotel is good if you like huge hotels.More
Grand Bahia Principe Bavaro
We visited the resort in Sept with our daughter who is an adult also. When we arrived, we were upgraded upon arrival. The main pools and beach were only a stone's throw away. Our room was very nice. The maids did a great job in cleaning each day. We were on the ground floor with a balcony which was really nice. We could have gone to ala carts 4 times but chose to go to the buffet each night as we were on vacation and ate when we were hungry. The buffet was so big. You could pretty much get anything you wanted. The food was really good. Our favourite waiter was Luis. He was awesome! Funny young guy who made us feel very welcome as did all the staff. Although it was a buffet, it was like being in a nice restaurant. The staff right there to refill drinks and take dishes away. The grounds, pool, and beach were wonderful. The grounds were kept up really well. It is a big resort but, they have a trolly that goes back and forth from the beach to the lobby. Sometimes we took it but, we also walked quite a bit. It felt more like being in a community. It was so relaxing and I found the staff to be very respectful and very friendly. We felt very welcomed. I would recommend this resort to anyone and will likely come back myself.More

Visited 4 oct to 18 Family of 40 guest with Thomas Cook the weather was brilliant hotel fantastic.how people can moan about it about trivial things is beyond me. The staff can't do enough there would be 40 of us sat together on a night and the waitress would keep the alcohol flowing all night with a few dollars here and there. Manuella was are wedding organiser and everything was perfect from start to finish are wedding was on the beach lovely setting then reception at garden grill. We went in the Japanese,garden grill,seafood ,BBQ and Mexican all very nice and the buffets were great couldn't fail to find something to your liking Rooms were great aircon fine beds were huge and comfy loads of English films on tv if you flick through the channels We had several teenage lads with us who frequented the nightclub till the early hours and then to the beach bar till 6 in the morning which they said was ok to say there usual holidays are to Ibiza The beach is outstanding postcard picture lovely turquoise sea and warm. The pools are great could of played a bit more English music instead Spanglish all the time it starts to grate on you after 2 weeks Overall the hotel is great this is my third visit to the hotel so we took 40 people with us this time to get married there would give it 10 out of 10.More
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
