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.

Great place for a Winter Holiday
2nd time in resort and we will definitely be returning in the future.On the whole food has been excellent and plenty of choice throughout the complex. Some new additions this year Fantasia opened in November and looks fabulous great place for families to be. Service has been good too especially Natalia in Amber green bar she's a shining star. Amber blue buffet restaurant staff also deserve a huge thank you for keeping our morning coffee topped up along with the breakfast omelette chef.More
All in all very good.
This is only our second all inclusive and thoroughly enjoyed the resort. The buffet food was just ok,the restaurants being better. Our only complaint was the fact that the day after we arrived we realized our phone didn't work. It took them late in the next day to tell us it couldn't be fixed..we could move to another room. I was afraid and not anxious to pack up again and move so we stayed put. So in hindsight we should have moved because it was a bit of a pain without a phone for room service etc. I loved Ambar blue in comparison with green etc....so close to the beach but the pool was too loud for my taste.More

Only day two
We have come here on recommendation to celebrate a 65th birthday and a wedding anniversary and have read others reviews. We contacted the hotel 2 weeks in advance and asked for 2 rooms together in amber green on an upper floor. We also requested a choice of a LA carte restaurants which we appreciate they may not be able to do. They responded telling us that our requests had been received. We arrived 16/01/17 Rooms two blocks apart, one on upper floor one on lower floor. Robes in one room but no slippers, neither in the other room. The fridge in one room had not been restocked. No pool towels in one room two in the other. Restaurant bookings made in only two and not what was requested. Bottle of bubbly and banner in the birthday boys room nothing in wedding anniversary room. Spoke with our TUI rep who has resolved our issues to our satisfaction. The hotel itself is lovely and the staff are friendly. Small buffet was very disappointing last night, appreciating that a lot of guests arrived simultaneously however that should not spoil the guest experience. The food in there was of a poor quality and some of it was just left to dry out and was unappetising. Drinks servers have difficulty understanding (I had to write down Vodka and tonic and ended up with Vodka and Water!) We have been regular visitors to Dominican Republic and know we will enjoy our celebration. I can only say that our first day and a half wasn't what we expected but hopefully we can enjoy the rest. It's 8.15 in the morning, nice breeze and the sun is out. About to go for breakfast and relax. Providing we don't encounter any more issue, I won't be commenting any further. We don't complain for complaining sake. My rating is only how I see it now they have 12 days to gain the other two points And relax....More
Rocky start, but overall very nice
Got a great deal through Air Canada vacations and stayed a week at the Bahia Ambar. Our stay started off a little rocky - our shower head was missing from the room, the door wouldn't lock properly, the wifi code didn't work, and our view overlooked a ratty looking field. I visited the front desk for help getting my room door fixed (because no one answered the phone), and was sent back and forth between Ambar Lobby 1 and 2. When I finally did get the attention of a manager I was told to relax and go enjoy dinner. I wasn't entirely comfortable with the fact that they expected me to leave things in my room with the door unlocked so we ended up staying in to order room service. Once these maintenance issues had been addressed our stay improved considerably. The Ambar section of the resort is lovely and the food was quite good. Pros: Food at both of the Ambar buffets was good and staff was super friendly The Spin class in the main pool was a fun workout Our room was a good trek from the beach, but the walk was really nice and the shuttle was frequent Wi-fi was fast and reliable (once we got a code that worked) Live music in the Ambar lobby in the evenings was good Cons: The casino was awful - a few dusty old slots that pays out in tokens The guys selling off-resort visits in the public "Pueblo Principe" area were vaguely threatening. I wouldn't recommend visiting it when there's not a crowdMore
very enjoyable....good food and service
We stayed for nearly a week, and enjoyed it thoroughly. The check-in was a bit slow, but they gave us the corner room over pool to amend for it. The service was fine, and the food was very good - especially the japanese and gourmet restaurants. Drink service was very good at all of the bars. We enjoyed the nearby golf and would do it again for an easy week off. Book your a la carte restaurants in advance of arriving to get which ones you want at a decent time.More
