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.

Kirsty W,

Great hotel. Loved it.

I stayed here the 30th August to the 13th September with my bf, mum & dad. I love this place. It is huge and very scenic. There was transport to get around but we barely used it. It takes about ten mins to get to most places. We all enjoyed the walk. The food here is really good. There is so much choice. The best theme was oriental but all were very good like the italian & dominican nights. Some of the food choices were weird but you don't have to eat them. The fruit, donuts, cheese and omelettes were delicious. There was also a cocktail available as you entered the buffet. As we were upgraded we went to sante fe for breakfast & lunch sometimes. It was only afew minutes from our room. The Sante Fe was convenient if we were coming from our rooms. The garden grill was delicious. The steak was huge & cooked really well. The ceasar salad was good. The maiko was very good. We sat at one of the tables so we could watch the show. The food was tasty. Not a fan of sushi so didn't eat that but the main was really nice. Mexican was different to what we expected but nice. The meditarean took to long. My steak was very good but it took 40 minutes to get our mains. Our waitor must have messed up. We did book the bbq but there was construction work going on. 2 staff members tried to fob us off 2 days before and say it'll be open. The cocktails were so good. Banana mama was my personal favourite. Pina colada, sexy princess( cocktail of the day so only on one day a week), tequila sunrise were all very good. We were upgraded before we arrived. It was a nice surprise. Our room was quite big with a balcony. The bed was comfy and the room was clean. We did have afew issues with the room but we didn't let it ruin the holiday. The staff are all very friendly. Our personal favourite was Alexis but Jose, Jose & Mario were all very cool. Alexis was so friendly and enthusiastic. He was always smiling. Alexis went the extra mile. Feliz was great aswell and did a great job with our room. She was a lovely woman. Most of the waitresses are all friendly. Everyone works really long hours and still are very nice. I don't know how they do it. Stuart the Thomas Cook rep was good. He was very friendly & did a great job. The trips with Thomas Cook were way to expensive. We only did one trip. The mega trucks was alot of fun. We learnt alot and saw a different side of the dominican republic. We did buy some stuff at the plantation and most of it was reasonably priced. The first stop was a shop but it was reasonably priced compared to the hotel. There was alot of a really pretty jewellary to buy. The hotel lobby is gorgeous inside. The whole complex is well maintained and we saw people working on the grounds every day. The beach was huge. The water was not always clear but it was nice to get in most days. September is rainy season so it did rain afew days on and off. It wasn't a problem though. Some of the pools are quite noisy but we found a pool that was nice & quiet. I think there is at least 3 large pool. All the pools looked well maintained and clean We didn't feel pressured to tip at all. Some people like the people who take your bags to your room expect afew dollars but with everyone else it was our decision. We tipped Feliz every day and found it helped alot. It was only 2 or 3 dollars a day but she did a great job throughout our holiday. There was entertainment every night. We saw the circus of dreams & michael jackson show. The circus of dreams is very good. The performers were all good. The michael jackson show was really loud but the impersonator was good. There was a live band some nights but we didn't catch that. For kids there was lots of entertainment also. Not sure if it was every night but a mini disco with people dressed up as hello kitty, pluto etc was on. The prices at the shops was ridiculous in the main. One man wanted $35 for a beach ball that would cost no more than £1 in a cheap shop. It was a joke really. In the end he did lower the price to 10 dollars but that was still crazy. We did buy some stuff from the shops that we considered reasonable. The shops all charge a set rate as they have to pay the hotel. At the end of the beach there is some shops but its far down. We only made it just past the beach bar and gave up. The swamp is reservation for animals. I loved the turtles. So for the people moaning, it's to protect the animals. We saw parrots in the trees many times and every day we saw at least 10 lizards. It was great. The weather was so hot all day even when it rains. The plants would die if it didn't rain though. Anyway i would definatly come back to this place. It was paradise. As i said the place is huge but so pretty to walk round. Certain staff members made our stay very enjoyable and enhanced the experience. There is something for everyone. Please try & learn afew basic words of spanish(if you are going or thinking of) if you don't already speak it. Please, thank you & hello is a start. It looks like your trying as most of them speak spanish. Most staff do understand basic english though. More

Gizmo G,

Easy all-inclusive, lovely staff

This place is basically 5 hotels on one property. My best friend and I found a living social deal for 6 nights and flew down for a nice vacation. Hotel staff were superb and accommodating all the time. We were upgraded to a room closer to the beach, which was very kind of them. Food at the buffet restaurant and the other themed restaurants was delicious and fresh every day. We only scouted out 2 of the 5 pools, but they were both amazing, clean, had plenty of lounge chairs, and cute little bars you could swim up to. Beach was gorgeous; beautiful sand and blue water. There are plenty of sections to the hotel to accommodate families, couples, adults only, etc. I would recommend this place to friends looking for a great package stay.More

Wonderful Grand Bahia principe!

Amazing resort & beach. Excellent variety of food.Staff friendly and fun. Great entertainment. Rooms clean and air conditioned . Animation team the best especially "Johnny ". Cocktails and drinks awesome . Five days was too short . Definitely go back again.More


Good for the Price

Great pool and beach, service was great . A little tip goes a long way. Food was good nothing to complain about always good variety and constantly being tended to by the staff... a la carte were okay..the Japanese one , food extremely salty wouldn't waste my time except for maybe the bbq because they grill some really good steaks. In all would go back especially with family....the rooms were good size and the bed firmness was decent....More
