Lovely Hotels Within a huge complex...
We stayed here the last week in july the first week in august. The complex is HUGE split into different sections of apartments. we were next to the adult section with our daughter But never really heard any overpowering noise coming from the section. The food is never to everyones taste, there was always and ample choice for even the fussiest person.. we tried the steak house, the italian, the Japanese show cooking, the bbq, dominican style, and the mexican al a carte restaurants. they were all fantastic the Japanese show cooking was our favorite, the bar service gets a little hectic at times all over the complex ( where we visited anyway) just pick your moment. Theirs waiters and waitresses offering a bar service in the lobby area. The entertainment was not the greatest weve seen nor by far the worst. We normally just sat in the lobby on an evening where there is wifi. The wifi isnt great but it works.. The closer you sit to reception the stronger the signal. The pools we visited their was people picking up used plastic cups keeping the area clean but like everything else hundreds leaving empty cups and 1 or 2 collecting theres going to be a few blown about. There is golf buggys constantly runnning around the complex if you get tired just hop on one.. The beach area and that big pool at the beach are the busiest.. they play games and music for the adults and kids. the restaurant at the beach are open from 10am till 5pm. the beach combers are constantly picking up the sea weed that comes in from the ocean, you see trucks daily taking tons away..all in all we had a fantastic hoilday here at the gran bahia principe bavaro and would return 9/10More

We were here for our wedding and on arrival during the first night we were given what can only be described as a hostile reception by a receptionist by the name of Hilda. We then arrived at our room and this was not the room we expected. We then had to move rooms again, and on the new room we had limited air conditioning and were not given our VIP bracelets until 1 week in. Our wedding was well organised and went well however the photograph price was nothing short of rediculous. We would recommend that anyone holding a wedding on this resort gets all prices agreed up front.More
We just got back from this lovely place gorgeous gardens lovely food, beaches , pools, staff excellent, room cleaned every day, we travelled with tui who were also excellent really lovely relaxing holiday only one thing take plenty of insect repellent the mosquito s at night are ready if you forget to put some on even put it on your toes any skin showing !!!! Other than that brilliant place to go I'd defiantly go back. More
This is not a hotel it's a resort, its massive it has a little bus to take you down to the beach and back, which our daughter loved. Choice of food is massive although there is no pool bar food so you do have to go to either the beach restaurant or the buffet, seriously this is our only negative! Rooms are lovely, clean and big. Choice of pools with swim up bars, which was also a big hit as she didn't even have to get out the pool to have a juice! The trips are expensive but really glad we did them. We would definitely come back to this resort.More
My favorite all inclusive yet!
Sorry for the delay in this. This is my 3rd all inclusive to visit, my first in Dominican Republic. If I could come here every year, I'd be so happy! The pros The resort is amazing! There are actually multiple Resorts all included in one, so it's kind of confusing at first. But they have wonderful shuttles that take you from every area to the other and to the beach and main resorts all throughout the day and at night. The resort is super clean, there are always people cleaning and making sure it looks its best. There are multiple pools, so you have your choice of which part of the resort you want to swim in party pools, or for more family-oriented. The beach was huge always a ton of chairs, and umbrellas to sit under. The sand was always clean, and the sales people weren't that bad. There are multiple beach bars, so anywhere you sat you were close to getting a drink. The beach restaurants were so delicious, we like them more than the main restaurant at the club. The food was different everyday but was always amazing it was easy to find a seat, and the wait staff was wonderful. The dinners at night, at the restaurants, were so good! You had such variety, you never got bored. The buffet in the morning in the lunch and dinner was so good, if you didn't book a reservation at one of the restaurants, you would still eat amazingly well. The wait staff everywhere in the resort was top-notch, they were the best that I've seen and have dealt with. The staff at the bar in the lobby where are favorites, they always knew my name and were amazing with their drinks and always made us feel welcome. Like I said, this was my favorite all-inclusive resort I've been to. The resort is very big, but everything is so spread out, that you really don't notice. Really the only con I had with the Bahia Principe at this resort was we had requested two queen beds and when we showed up it was a California king. They said that they would try to get us two queens, but the point was mute, and they didn't try very hard to switch us. Luckily my friend and I get along, and the king bed was so big we didn't touch throughout the night. Sometimes they could have been better putting items in the room like coffee creamer and drinks, but that was a rarity. Thank you to this Resort, we will definitely be back and I told everybody what a wonderful experience I had there to try to get you some more business!More
