Not only does this place – voted one of TripAdvisor's top All Inclusive resorts – line up luxury suites, gourmet restaurants and a gigantic pool, it’s got a sandy beach as its front garden.
If there’s one word that fits this adults-only hotel, it’s luxury. It’s surrounded by lush gardens and is right on a white-sand beach, plus the bedrooms are all suites, with canopy beds and hydro-massage tubs.
There’s a huge pool, loads of sports and four à la carte restaurants here. To top it all off, it’s a 3-for-1 deal – you get full run of the facilities at the Grand Bahia Principe Bavaro and the Punta Cana, next door.

Will be visiting next week.
I stayed at this resort in November of 2011 for a wedding and everything was amazing. There were 37 of us in total, and not person had anything bad to say about the overall experience. I'm looking forward to visiting again as myself and my husband will be celebrating our 2 year wedding anniversary.More
Took our eight Caribbean vacation the week of Sept 1st. We usually like to stay at different hotels each time so the experience is fresh and exciting. We learned over the years that we like larger resorts with lots of variety, pools, restaurants and a nice beach for walking. This was our second vacation at this resort, we were more than excited to be returning. Let me tell you why. Pros. -We upgraded this year to Luxury Amber. Was well worth the extra we paid. - It is quieter in that section because it is adults only. -You get as many specialty reservations as you would like. -The food was great in all the restaurants with plenty of variety even for the most picky eaters. Have to say the Rodizio Restaurant was our favorite. - The bathroom has a walk in shower. -Large room, comfortable bed, well stocked fridge, lots of bottled water provided in the room. Oh Ya lots of hot water. (we left a 5$ Canadian tip for the maid each day. Thanks for the great service) -Our bed would be turned down with chocolates on the pillow when we returned for the evening. -Thank you Eddy and all your restaurant staff for the great service. God Bless. -Jonathan in guest services is a very caring person. My wife was not feeling well one day so we had to cancel evening restaurant reservations. He wanted to know what the problem was, he suggested that she should drink Gatorade for dehydration. He went and got it himself and asked me to let him know if it helped. We returned the next day to let him know she was feeling much better. He then went and got another bottle for her. Thanks so much! -Very Clean resort -AC worked great -The beach is long and beautiful, great for long walks. Water was warm with little seaweed compared to last year. Beach was cleaned daily. -It is a large resort but you can get a ride to any part of the resort if you don't want to walk. -In the Bavaro section of the resort the train will come by every few minutes to give you a ride, remember you are here to relax so just mellow and enjoy the ride. -Lots of beach chairs at anytime this time of year. We spent all our time at the beach to enjoy the sea breezes. -Waiters keep your glass full of the great tasting drinks while you bask in the sun. Cons -We stayed near the beach close to the trees. We found that there were Mosquitoes on our patio deck during the day and night. If you leave your patio door open they will get in you room so you will have bites in the morning. My wife's bites swell to welts when bitten. Use fly oil and bring antibiotic cream if you get bitten. -Some of the food dishes at the buffet were not as hot as i would have liked. Don't get me wrong that was not the norm. We had a very enjoyable time. We will be returning again! Great Value and great service. Thanks so much Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar. Remember if you are friendly and eager to say Hola you will get Hola and a big smile in return.More
Expected a good vacation but had to settle for unprofessional, unsafe and rude service! Went first time to Dominican and won't be coming back. Liked the riviera PrÃncipe coba so much more. Don't go here. Pools, beach and food is great. Service is awful. I saw so many violations, wet floors where guest, myself included, fall and none of the staff would come up. Eye rolling right there and then if you had a question or concern. Attitude at the booking restaurants. What really put a nail in the coffin is us personally seeing one of the waiters finishing an alcoholic beverage after a guest by sitting down and thinking nobody saw it. Upon bringing this up to the manager of the beach buffet he said "it's impossible" and questioned the waiter and his boss where they denied it as well. I made a complaint but didn't get any apology in response like that's a normal thing. Unprofessional! Transportation could use help as well. We would get up at 6 to go to the beach and had to walk 20 min(don't mind the walk) but some days I wanted to catch the trolley which was never to be found. Promised routing timing is off Unfriendly drivers Excessive emission from cars Will take you where you want to go only if you tip Careless, fast driving Staff itself didn't respect the quiet hours in the buildings...yelling, laughing at night. TV have bad reception, poor quality. I understand we are in a different country but 80/85 channels in Spanish! Come on Overcharge for all the excursions, and what you see on the brochures are 20% of what you will get. I felt as if the staff was too spoiled of the great business and careless about being their best! Overall I wouldn't recommend them place, it ruined Dominican for us. More
Room Service leaves a lot to be desired
I am currently staying at this resort. Yes, it's a nice resort, food is good and entertainment is nice as well. I'm writing this review mostly out of frustration. Issue #1: ordered room service 2 nights ago, I was told food would be delivered within 45 minutes...I waited one and a half hour..nothing...I called again, they said food was coming, I finally received my food 2 hours after ordering. I still gave a tip. Issue #2: mini bar is supposed to be restocked daily. On the day I arrived here I asked to be give DIET Coke, I do not drink the regular type. I have yet to be given Diet Coke even though I've been leaving daily notes in Spanish requesting it plus calling the concierge service. Mini fridge should include a bag of chips and 3 mini bottles of alcohol. I was given 1 bag of chips and the 3 minis on the day I arrived. Today is day 5 of my stay and have not been given more...only regular Coke, which of course I do not drink. Every time I call the front desk and request chips, Diet Coke, minis they say "Sure" but they're never delivered. So last night I decided to give room service one more try. I asked to be brought some Diet Coke along with my meal. 1 hour later my food was delivered...along with a REGULAR Coke!!! I told the boy who brought my food that I specifically asked for diet and to please bring it to me since I did not want to have to go to the bar myself because my food would get cold. I still gave him a tip. He said he'd be back in 5 minutes. I waited 15. I was starving so I began eating...annoyed. He finally showed up after I had finished my meal..maybe 35 minutes after he left.
