Nice hotel with great staff

Posted Oct 29, 2014
My husband and I had a great time will definitely visit again. The staff was very friendly and attentive to your every need and the food was plentiful. My only fault was not a good night life if you want to party but the entertainment (shows) were good.

To many complication or conflict of places.

When we get into the lobby part of my family was in diferent side of the hotel and we couldn't use the same restaurant and facility, we just get acces to do reservations in one restaurant on three nights, doors locks don't work properly, Saturday morning we was waiting for towels more than one hour on the main pool towel station by the beach.

Is a big hotel

Posted Oct 20, 2014
Pros: The food is very good and the treatment of employees is excellent
Cons: Should slightly improve the organization
Location: The beach, pools anf foods is close
Is a big hotel. Grand Bahía Príncipe have 5 hotels in the same area. For you arrived to the beach, you need to take a train into the place. The transport is quickly!!

nice hotel, great staff

Posted Oct 17, 2014
the resort was really good the only down side is the beach. We were really disappointed with all the seaweed in the water and on the beach, you couldn't enjoy the beach. The staff cleaned it the best they could but it was never ending. We spent our time at the pool which is excellent. The buffet was ok but it was almost the same food everyday. The restaurants were booked so I would advise you to try to book a reservation as soon as you check in. The tables in the dining room of the buffet are much to close together hindering attempts of holding a conversation.

If you don't mind the HUGE cockroach...

Posted Oct 16, 2014
Pros: Stayed at Grand Bahia, Jamaica. Friend arranged for their wedding to be there in Punta Cana.
Cons: Cleanliness and food quality.
Location: Saona Island catamaran trip is amazing!
We went on a trip for a friend's wedding so with almost 30 of us it would be a good time no matter what. However, I could have done without the BIGGEST cockroach in my room. The hotel did try to make it up to us, though it was like pulling teeth. We were given a few things such as a couple's massage (which they tried to charge us for at checkout), a small bottle of rum, a fruit basket (not that I would eat it in my room where I has seen a roach-EW!) and they allowed us to add more people to our dinner reservation for my husband's birthday and provided a birthday cake. The food was not great, which I was surprised about since we had stayed at a Grand Bahia in Jamaica and enjoyed the food there. I was sick after every meal, as a few other people in our group also said. The resort is also too big, you must take a trolley to go anywhere and if you are in a group it can be very time consuming to try to find one another, etc. The one thing this resorts really provides is an amazing beach and the steakhouse and BBQ restaurant were very good. Aside from that I would say keep looking at other resorts.

great resort,only a few negatives

Posted Oct 15, 2014
Pros: b
Cons: The draft beer was really bad . I don't know what it was but it was nasty. Mama juana shots were good but they will get you trashed quick if you drin
Location: akk
stayed at grand Bahia principe bavaro from OCT 6-OCT 11.The room was really nice except the bed that my friend slept in had dirty sheets,some kind of fresh stain on them.Housekeeping responded immediately and changed the sheets.All of the staff that I encountered was extremely pleasant and helpful.The only problem might be that very few of them spoke English and sometimes it was a little hard to communicate.But you have to remember that this is a country where the majority speak Spanish,so learn to deal with it.There were a few English speaking staff around,so if you feel it necessary then track one of them down.Tlhe resort itself is extremely well kept and really lets you know that you are on a tropical island.Palm trees and tropical plants everywhere.The pools and restaurants were clean.The food in the main buffet is ok,but I wouldn't call it any more than that.The food in the other restaurants was much better but you have to make reservations for these.The resort is huge but the shuttle runs every 10-15 minutes so you really don't have to wait too long.I think that it took me about 15 minutes to walk from one end to the other so that really wasn't a problem

Pros: Everything. Mostly the transport to avoid long hot walks.
Cons: The air-cond was weak -had to sort light switches - fans that apparently don't work unless the door is closed or pass key in. Makes perfect sense now.
Location: We went on day trip. was wonderful. JJ and sexy Elvis made it unique.
My sister and I had gone just to relax, visit. Instead we were pulled into some of the most fun we have had in months. Henry on the beach was our favorite. Laugh, get some exercise and let our hair down by just getting silly. Food left so many options that NO one could want for vittles - ever. Planning to head back right in Dec if we can get our friends to go with us! Very accommodating venue.

Beautiful resort, great food and service!!!

Posted Oct 5, 2014
This resort has something for everyone, the food was great, the service was first class and the resort is beautiful! The hotel staff were extremely friendly and will go out of their way to please you! Quality liquor; Brugal rum, Stolichnaya vodka, Vat 69 whiskey. Disregard the naysayers complaining about high humidity, too many mosquitos, or no one speaking perfect English. Stay in your bubble in that case. Great value, service and amiable people! Would highly recommend this resort to just about anyone.
