At first you might think the Island is small but when you start walking you sense the true size. We are not used to the heat so walking took a little more out of us but you can call for a ride or flag one down readily. All the rooms are similar but the location dictates your view and the amount of walking you do. There were no mosquitos or pests of any kind. No irritating birds. No begging on the Island. There were children begging at the landing where the water transportation was. I am not sure the hotel should stop this or not. It is part of the experience when you visit the D.R. The reviews on Tripadvisor all say how great the staff is. Hard to believe it can be that good but is among the Best we have seen. Our Butler David Perez was outstanding and was always available to help us out or answer anything. He was very knowledgeable about the Country and local area. A wonderful addition to our holiday. Snorkelling we booked on the property was well worth the $35.00 usd. Out to a shipwreck a short distance away with clear water and lots of fish. Then over to the other side of the island where there was starfish and coral. We stayed as long as we liked and went all around the Island. It was well worth the money. Never zip lined before but Walk the Plank Zipline was a great outing. Very safe and interesting. I would suggest that only physically fit try it because the ride in the truck is rough, there is a steep hike involved and at the end of the zip line you will need good legs. Not recommended for people with joint problems. It is a wonderful experience. They take you to some interesting places. Check it out on the internet. We liked the food, it is a matter of taste. If you have any dietary issues you can simply get a letter on arrival from the front desk that will instruct food staff of your needs. My wife has Gluten issues and she was fine. She was catered to special foods to make her stay wonderful. Once the chef was aware she made wonderful suggestions, I believe she was from Columbia, very sweet, pretty and helpful. Like any other place there was some communication glitches but nothing serious. The wifi was not as good as home but it works, just slow. Typical drink selections. The Bahia Principe Privilege Club is a little different than the Real Club we belong to. We accepted the offer to listen to their presentation and found it interesting. They were very professional and knowledgeable. We expected a hard sell and we got it but we were treat with respect and never felt pressured at all. They do know how to present a proposal that is hard to resist. Very professional. It would not break my heart to spend more time at this resort. I just loved the easy pace. The beaches are great, if you like waves you got it ,if you like it calm it is all there. An amazing place.More

Just come back from 2 weeks on a genuine paradise island. the hotel is fantastic, the weather was beautiful, the food and cocktails are amazing and the location is perfect. We spent most days round the quiet pool as we were looking for peace and quiet and it was ideal. The service is excellent and although there were too many wonderful staff to mention them all by name I would like to make special mention of Enmanuella and Pablo as they always made us smile just from their infectious laughter, big beaming smiles and excellent service. The rooms are fabulous, we were in Villa 27 which is close enough to the pool and restaurants but at the same time far enough away from everything that we weren't disturbed by any noise. We'd read about the building work before we went but can honestly say we didn't hear a thing. Entertainment is not the best we've seen but the staff are very enthusiastic and just want to make sure everyone enjoys themselves. We ate in 3 of the a la carte restaurants, Don Pablos was fantastic (have the prince and princess lobster and steak), the Mediterranean was beautiful (lobster or pork fillet are delicious), if you're a meat eater then I recommend the Brazilian restaurant. Just don't book any of them on a Thursday as that's Gala night in the main buffet restaurant where you'll be treated to amazing seafood. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel and hope that we can return one day.More

Luxurious and Peacefull retreat

I just got back from this resort after a 7 day stay (Oct 11 to 18, 2014) with my spouse and I must admit that this was an amazing retreat. I will break it down into various sections so that i can give as honest a review as I can possibly can. I will mention that I am a Privilege Club member so certain things reviewed may differ from other travellers reviews. As a Privilege Club member, getting to the resort was easy as I was provided with a private cab for a small fee (1 hour cab ride from Samana Airport). My wife and I arrived at the resort approximately 30-45 minutes prior to the bus which made it easier to register/check in as we did not have to wait in line for anything. Marjorie was the concierge that welcomed us to the resort and she was very pleasant, kind and and always smiling, making our stay that much better. In addition to Marjorie, our butler Gabriel was exceptional at ensuring we had everything required to make our stay the best it possibly could, which it was, simply amazing. Overall the Privilege Club at this resort was great, although I feel that the resort does not have the other privileges available at some of the other resorts, such as a Privilege Club reserved section for canopies near the beach, private car(taxi) for going around but it was not that big of a deal as the resort is not that big and taxi system is pretty quick. The overall cleanliness of the resort is what you would expect of a 5 star resort, very clean. The architecture is nice, the layout of the vegetation on the resort very pretty and well planned. The room was immaculate ( we were in villa 11), cleaned regularly with bed turn down at night. There was a jacuzzi which we did not use as we have one at home but it was a ncie touch to have the option. Food: The resort has a good food selection at the buffet and poolside restaurants (during the day). There is something for everyone to enjoy, the seafood is fresh and the quality of the food is really good. if you have a chance to book " A la carte" I strongly recommend Don Pablo and Mediterraneo as your choices. The other two restaurants are ok but I would not return personally as the buffet food is as good with more choices. The Staff: The staff at the resort will do anything they can to make your stay the best experience possible. One of the servers (Raymundo) was always greeting us when he saw my wife and I to ensure all of our needs were met. The staff always goes out of their way to ensure you miss nothing. Very friendly and happy staff made it very enjoyable to walk around any part of the resort. The Animation team is also a nice touch at this resort. This group of people is very friendly, fun to be with and make it their priority for you to have fun and enjoy your time by the pool, beach, lobby and at night there is a variety of shows (different each night) to keep you entertained. When most of the resort turns in at night, the fun continues on the public beahc with music, drinks and dancing. Very nice touch. If you are a couple that wants to get away, I strongly recommend this resort. If you are looking to mingle with other single people, I would suggest perhaps looking at another resort as the vast majority of customers at this resort are couples or family members wanting to have fun and relax. I would definately return to this resort and have no problem recommending this resort to family and friends. G.C.More
