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.

If it's your Honeymoon, go for Ambar or Esmeralda

We booked Bahia Principe based off online reviews for our honeymoon -- so happy we did! This was our first all-inclusive vacation and we loved it. The food was better than we expected, and there's always a buffet open. Lobby bars served better drinks than the pools or beach, but all the bartenders were fun and easygoing. We received fantastic service all over the resort as well as at the airport and in transit. We did not understand how the Bahia Principe was organized until we got there. There is one big resort with about five separate hotels (but all part of the same bigger organization) on the property. Bavaro is a 3 star hotel. We were impressed except for the bed -- it's pretty hard and uncomfortable. We had the chance to tour the new addition to the resort, 5 star Esmeralda. It's beautiful and we wished we had booked there for our honeymoon, a special occasion. That being said, we had fantastic value for the room we booked at Bavaro and we would normally stay in the 3 star range hotel so it didn't bother us too much. Maids came every day to replace towels and make the bed. There are constant trams running to the beach (yes, the resort is that large) and entertainment shows to watch every night. The beach was beautiful and so relaxing! Only one warning, pack plenty of sunscreen because if you're from the midwest like us, you won't be used to the bright sun! We were shocked to find that sunscreen ran about $30 a bottle for off-brand on the resort.More

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

Natalya Z,

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 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
