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.

Large Resort

Pro's - 1. Gran Bahia Principe Punta Cana is extremely large, but very clean. Check in and check out was quick and easy. 2.There are lots of pools and bars in different locations on this resort, so you can be in a different spot every day. 3.The live entertainment at night was awesome! lots of shows, singing and dancing. 4.There are lots of stores on the property and you can find everything you need; from sunscreen, floats, liquor, cloths art and much more. It's like a little city. 5.We stayed on the adult side, but this hotel accommodates all ages. There was an entire children's section very far away from the adults, so you barely noticed them. 6. The water spa was awesome! The BBQ on the Beach had the best food. You need reservations to eat there. 7. We had a great experience with the staff. 8. The Beach was far, but nice and large to accommodate the guest. Chairs were available throughout the day, no matte what time we went to the beach. We found lots of water activities the beach. We did the Banana boat ride and para sailing; which was lots of fun. Con's - 1. Because the property is so large, they have bus stops to help you get around. However, the buses came every 30 min instead of of every 10 min like we were told. We found that it was much easier to walk to the lobby (10 min walk) to catch the bus for the beach. 2. Do not expect any room upgrades upon arrival like they do in other Resorts. When we asked, the front desk, the gentleman just gave us a firm NO. he didn't even check to see if anything was available. The good news is that our room was quite nice. 3. My husband and I was disappointed with the food. The made the same thing almost every day and it didn't taste good. 4. Internet is only provided for 1 hour per day in the main lobby.More

massive grounds!

fantastic hotel, make use of the free transport, you'll need it! massive selection of al la carte restaurants if you tire of the buffets, although they go change the themes of the buffets so every day is different, which is cool! the beach is really well kept and cleaned daily in the morning to remove seaweed and rubbish washed up from the sea if it was a bit rough the night before. The water is clear and its a nice walk up the beach to the local beach huts selling all kinds of wonderful items. highly recommend, we used to only use Riu, now we only use Grand Bahia, Jamacia nextMore

fabulous holiday

from start to finish we had an excellent holiday, our accommodation was kept spotlessly clean by a maid with a cheery hola every morning, fluffy towels and fridge refilled everyday, what more can you ask for, yes the resort is large, but if you do not want to walk off the copious amounts of food available everyday there is transport that constantly drives around the hotel, and also with this being a large resort there is plenty of areas to visit to stop you getting bored, each of the al la carte restaurants we visited the food was excellent and served with a smile, the grounds are kept immaculately tidy, there are several pools to choose from dependent on whether you want peace and quite or wish to have music and games, we used all of them, and would say each to their own, probably our choice would have depended on how many cocktails we had indulged in the previous evening, the cocktail / champagne bar in lobby was especially tempting, we had a hacienda room and found the separate restaurant allocated for breakfast and lunch quite and peaceful as the main buffet restaurant could get busy, but this buffet did have more choice of menu, again, your option to choose, we did not go to any of the shows in the amphitheatre but the entertainment staged in the lobby a couple of nights was fun. one last thing, the staff in the hacienda reception were fabulous, we had an issue that was unavoidable and the staff went out of their way to help would we return, yes, tomorrow if we couldMore

Great holiday

We recently stayed here 30th Aug to 13th Sept in room 26302. Firstly the good: I emailed prior to arriving both requesting an upgrade and also sending through our A La Cartes. Never had a problem with either and this was actioned promtly! The food is really good in the buffet. My partner is a chef and he rated the food as good. Tipping - maybe this was because of our culture in the UK but here peoppe have to earn their tips. We did find a few people who thought it was expected of them (mainly the bar in the main Bavaro lobby; ). For those who genuinely deserved it (and didn't ask for us to name them Trip Advisor) we thought the waiters in the Mexican were outstanding especially Juan Luis!! There were plenty of sunbeds available contrary to what other reviewers wrote. I think if they walked around the pools they would've found them. Maintenance man was called and at the room within 10 minutes!! It's not made very clear so remember: the air con only comes on when the balcony door is shut properly!! Now for the negatives: The A La Cartes... they still use a buffet service for the a la cartes. The menus are also limited a la carte. Do not go to the Italian. We found the staff rude and they started putting the food away before we actually got to eat it. We advised guest services who said they would take the complaint forward and get back to us... we never heard back from them which we thought was poor customer service. The manager was extremely rude. Also, the gourmet one was ok... again staff could've been a bit better. We were actually surprised by the amount of holiday makers that looked miserable! I think half of them have written reviews on here. We struggled to find a use for the main reception as everything we asked; we were advised that they "didn't know". The pros by far outweigh the cons! Brilliant holiday was had and if we qere returning to Dominican Republic, we woukd stay here again :)More

Simone T,

Great place to stay for family

I had a great time at grand Bahia principe. All the staff were nice and very helpful even if they didn't understand a lot of English they went out there way. I requested two rooms next to each other and near the pool before I arrived and they gladly accommodated. We were taken to our room via trolly which was great. The room was beautiful overall but I think it needed some more outlets and the TV channels were all in Spanish if you actually wanted to watch it. Rooms were cleaned everyday and tidy which is a plus. The staff will take care of you. One amenity that needed an upgrade was the tiny ironing board and that was pretty much it lol. Food was good and they have a huge variety. I would definitely stay here again! More
