Fantastic trip

Grand Bahia is a beautiful hotel. The grounds, rooms, activity areas and overall area is well kept and spotless. The staff is considerate of all your needs and respond very quickly whenever there is a problem. It is an awesome place to visit. We will return in the future. We had a great time and didn't want to leave.

Couldnt have picked a better vacation

My Husband and I (34yrs and 40 yrs old) go away ever year on our Anniversary and decided to try out Punta Cana. After some research and based on there reviews and price we decided on Grand Bahia Principe Bavaro and couldnt have been happier. The shows were amazing along with the entertainment and night life, there was never a dull moment . Then again we went horseback riding, Zip lining, 4 wheeling, jumped off a cliff into a cave and also went snorkeling if you can I suggest you try as many excursions possible so you get time away from the hotel (which you really dont need to) and get to actually view the island. The Hotel itself was beautiful food was good not great they need a little more variety at the buffet. The restaurants were excellent but you need to have a reservation. The drinks were awesome and we always had chairs by the pool and beach. We are looking forward to going back and bringing the kids with us this time.

Whole Family trip

This was an excellent trip for myself and my wife and her family. It was an excellent value, so much so, we were able to book 3 nights for her family that lives in the DR. It was a great experience for them and a joy to be a part of. The hotel was great, with the kids water park area and the shows at night were very good and everything else that you would expect for an all inclusive hotel in punta cana... pools, beach, restaurants, etc...

Great Experience.

We enjoyed a lot our staying at Grad Bahia Principe. The beach was wonderful, the staff was excellent and friendly ( especially the waiters and bartenders) and the food was delicious with plenty of drinks all inclusive. There were a lot of entertainments and shows all the day. The only things that I didn't like was the mattress and the pillows of our bed. The mattress was very hard, it should have been softer than that. As overall experience I'll give 5 stars to this resort.

Pools/Beach/Drinks Great - Food was awful

We stayed 8 nights and 9 days. Positive: Beach were beautiful. Pools were so clean. Landscaping was impecable. Drinks were easy to get and well made. Negative: The food was the worst that I have ever experienced, and the staff was unfriendly and unhelpful 80 of the time. Tip- Reserve your beach/pool chair by 8am at the latest. Do not eat at the seafood restaurant. We would not reserve a room night again here.

It was okay for the price

The hotel is huge. if you want more accommodations you have to stay in a different section of the resort. Bravo was okay for the price you get. The food was not the best. You also have to tell the staff if you want liquor in your drink. Everybody does things for a tip. It was worth the price but not the best place you can stay

Relaxing Honeymoon (Hacienda Club)

My husband and I stayed at Grand Bahia Principe Bavaro for our honeymoon in December 2014 and had a great time! We paid the few extra dollars a night for the "Hacienda Club" and it was a great decision! Upon check in, you are taken to a private welcome with a welcome drink and friendly staff. Not only was the Hacienda room close to the beach and main pools, but there's a separate breakfast & lunch restaurant right next to the main pool area (it also serves as the Mexican restaurant for dinner). The breakfast was amazing! It was very close to our room so we didn't try the main buffet for breakfast but what was nice about the separate breakfast area was that it was never packed, and people weren't scrambling to get food. We didn't do any excursions, but when I had been to Punta Cana a couple years ago I did the "Bavaro splash" (a half day of snuba and you can drive a two-seater speed boat) which I would suggest for anyone who's interested in snuba (combination of scuba diving and snorkeling). Instead of doing an excursion we paid extra for a "Romantic Dinner on the Beach" which was well worth the money in my opinion. The room was very nice and always clean, the restaurants were good, and the staff was friendly. We only stayed for 5 nights and the only reservation times that were available were for after 9pm, so upon arrival I would suggest making a reservation right away. We didn't mind eating late since we enjoyed most of the day by the pool and beach and wanted to take advantage of that. We had reservations at the BBQ and at the Japanese restaurant and both were good! The BBQ had similar food as the main buffet besides some extra meats, I wish we would have opted for the Italian or French instead but BBQ was all that was available for that day. The Japanese restaurant has a regular sit down menu and also hibachi. We didn't realize until we got to dinner that we had reservations for the regular sit down dinner but it was still really good! The main buffet for dinner had an abundance of options, so I have a hard time seeing how some people claim to not find anything to eat. We also went to the casino that they had multiple slot machines and a few different tables. Heads up that drinks are NOT included in the casino. We did not go to the disco, we heard it was so-so but I regret not checking it out. The lobby area seemed to close down every night at around 11pm, so if you want to keep drinking then I would go to the disco. One thing we didn't know about until the second to last day was that there is a late night snack bar which are both located by the main pool. One was open from 10pm-midnight and the other from midnight-3am. The food at the late night snack bar was burgers, hot dogs, nachos, salad bar, and other foods of that sort. For the price of this resort it was definitely nice and I would suggest anyone who doesn't want to spend a lot of money to go to this resort!
