Honeymoon

The staff is super friendly and courteous. The Resort is right on the beach. Plenty of open chairs near the Ocean. Sea weed is cleaned everyday. Lorenso is the best bartender at the pool bar closest to the beach. Ask him for his special drink, you will not be disappointed. Simply put, this Resort is excellente!

5 star all the way!

From start to finish a fabulous stay. The staff was very friendly and very attentive to making our stay relaxing and enjoyable. Upon arrival we were assigned our personal butler, Milfi, who attended to our own unique requests like what style of pillow we each would like and what scent we would like it to have. The rooms are very large and extremely well maintained. The food was better than other all inclusive resorts that I have been to with lots of variety and good quality. The specialty restaurants were very good and worth making reservations for in advance. Overall a great vacation and would absolutely go back to Bahia Principe again.

Very nice

The pros: 1. beach 2. food 3. location 4. very quiet in the room The cons: 1. the room fridge almost not worked, tried to adjust - no luck. That the point to have a bar with warm drinks in the room? 2. very hot in the lobby and other places. Would be nice if management replace sealing fans to larger sizes.

If you have kids, use the kids club. It's pretty good. They will bring kids to a water park, so you can have your own time.

B& C windsor

Stayed at this resort August 15 - August 22, 2014. Our stay was very enjoyable. The food was satisfactory. However the buffet meals were better than that of the A La Carte Restaurants. The service was excellent from all of the staff members. The property is huge and immaculate. Excellent shuttle service. Never had to wait for drinks; refills were brought even before our glasses were empty. Our room was always clean and mini bar was always well stocked. There were no mosquitoes or bugs.. The beach is clean but a bit rough at this time of the year with some seaweeds, which were removed continuously by the employees. Special thanks to the following staff members who made our stay most enjoyable are: Charlie, Front Desk Supervisor, Anabel, Concierge, Jo Angel, Butler, Marsela, Housekeeping, Cesar Lopez, Manager at Los Geranios, Paola, Greeter, Julio Cesar, Bakes Martini, Valene and Gustave at the pool bar.

Wonderful beach vacation!

Wonderful staff, friendly and family oriented resort. The resort has all activities at the pool and the beach, all day long, from volley ball, yoga, stretching, Zumba, to cooking demonstration. Entertainment, casino, shows every night. You can take a short trolley ride to dinner at night or an easy walk through a beautiful manicured landscape. Nothing better than a beautiful view of the beach from your comfy lounge chair and a bahia principe drink on your hand. Cheers!

So So in Paradise

Overall property and grounds are impeccable. The rooms are so so. Upon arrival we were told our room was ready but when we got to the room one of the beds was not made. We did not have a stocked mini fridge as promised, nor the required towels. In addition the cleanliness of the room was so-so. On several occasions throughout the week we found bugs scurrying across floor and wall surfaces. If a fabulous clean room is your thing then skip this hotel. Despite these shortcomings we managed to have a wonderful Butler/Personal attendant who went above and beyond to get our special needs met. If you can request Meldy please do so. Overall our family had a great time in the DR-excursions helped and so did stiff drinks at the beach bar.

Make reservations for restaurants prior to arrival. We were told on the second day there were no reservations for the Garden Grill. Although most restaurants had open tables reservations were required. From what we could tell the benefit of reservations provided you with better table service than the buffet. The food was so so at both.

Great, but could have been better

First, I'd like to say that this resort was great. It has everything you need, with no real need to venture outside of the property. The buffet food was good and the staff was friendly. The a la carte restuarants were excellent. Some drinks were stronger than others when mixed, so that depended on what you were ordering. Mudslides were weak, whiskey + 7up was strong. The downsides (1# people leaving towels #2# staff not enforcing rules #3) sound travels really easily. There were times when the pool was practically empty with no one laying out, but yet there were no open chairs because everyone would go to dinner or back to their room and not take their towels. That was technically against the rules but no one seemed to care. It just meant you'd either have to move the towels yourself or not get a spot in the shade. The adult only jacuzzi always had kids in it. Again, no one seemed to care. They tended to be well behaved, but then again, the point of the area was for adults. The rooms were big, spacious, and clean. However, you could easily hear someone talking on the other end of the hallway. For whatever reason, the rooms did not block sound well. Kids singing at 6 am every morning sounded like they were in the room with you. It was more or an annoyance since you couldn't really sleep in because of the noise. In the end, we'd go again but probably book at the Ambar. That is mostly because we are in our 20's without kids, so hearing and putting up with other families kind of dampered the experience.
