relaxing short vacation

I have traveled often to the Dominican Republic and very familiar with Punta Cana. if you are looking for a step up, stay at the Esmeralda or Ambar out of all the Gran Bahia Principes. the food, room and overrall experience is better quality. Please note, Ambar is Adult only, Esmeralda allows children. Esmeralda is the smallest of all the properties therefore any room within the resort puts you close to the beach. we never had trouble finding charis at either the pool or beach. the rooms are all junior suites with mini bars and jacuzzi tubs and balconies. there is even butler service (included) and they bring you scented pillows ( on request) and stock your bar with ice etc. the food is very good for an all inclusive in Domiican republic. the buffet was very good with an extensive variety of foods. the a la carte restuarants were also tasty. if you stay in the esmeralda, you can eat at any of the restaurants at any of the bahia principe properties. the drinks are a bit watered down. the lobby bar ( as for Manolo) has the best drinks..try the Capihrina that he makes! WOW! the management and staff will go out of their way for you...very friendly and helpful. if you are looking for nightlife, esmeralda is not it. the resort is not big enough to have blasting music playing through the night and not disturb the guestsa in their rooms. go to AMBAR lobby for either live music, karoake, or DJ usially around 8pm until 11pm. then you can head over to the sports bar and disco located at the Bahia principe village at the punta cana hotel ( all within the gran bahia principe complex) if you are a bit adventurous, take a tax to the town and have the driver take you to the local spots to get a real feel for the local culture..warning it is very hot in july and august..be prepared to sweat all the tme! lol...but who cares you are on vacation....

Birthday week

The staff was very friendly.. The beach beautiful and the grounds we'll kept . The a la carte restaurants were excellent but the transportation to get around was lousy and horrible.. The staff spoke little to no English and I had a hard time communicating with them ... I enjoyed my stay and would definitely go back to this beautiful resort .... The food in the Buffett was mediocre and left a lot to be desired and the room was a little musty other than that it was great...

Customer service needs improvement

Esmarelda has the best location out of all the properties. I like being near the beach and the rooms and restaurants were near,. Food was above average for an all inclusive, rooms were pretty and clean.This is my 2oth trip to an all inclusive and my first experience with only one hour free of internet per day in the Lobby, you move one foot past the front desk and none is available. I purchased one week of internet thinking that my husband and I can both use it....not!!! Only one device per $50!! I like extra beach towels for my kids , they refused to give them to me, and they ran out of clean towels early. CUSTOMER SERVICE non-existent !! It would take paragraphs to write about it.

Esmeralda

The only issue I had with my stay was that they were overbooked on the first night and they gave me a lesser room that they said was equivalent though it wasn't. They gave me a $100 USD voucher that could only be used in their shops where everything was overpriced. The voucher only came after I complained about the first night. Overall though, a nice resort.

Getaway from the snow!

My friend and I came here for a five day getaway from all the snow back home. The day we arrived we were told that the resort was overbooked and as a result we were given a room at the Ambar property for one night and a $100 spending credit. The rooms at Ambar were dark and dingy looking. The next day we were transferred to the Esmeralda property. What a difference! The rooms were beautiful, bright and very conveniently located. Definitely ask for the 90 series building as this is the building closest to the beach. The entire Bahia Principe resort is immaculately maintained. Service, for the most part, is good. There is a system of trams that connects all the properties within the resort. Make sure to get all information about activities and locations as soon as you arrive. The signage could be improved as the properties are spread out and getting around is confusing (especially at night). Definitely try to book the A la Carte restaurants as far in advance as possible, preferably as soon as you arrive. We tried to get in to the Don Pablo Gourmet restaurant with no luck. The next best one is Le Gourmet, however, none of the restaurants are super outstanding. Service in the restaurants is OK but not great. Many of the restaurants have a buffet appetizer/salad bar and a buffet dessert bar. Not a true sit down restaurant experience. The beaches are beautiful, although a bit crowded. Need to go early to beach to reserve chaise lounges. Activities are easy to book. Overall, we enjoyed our trip and would return to the same property.

Almost perfect

This has to be one of the best hotels in the Hispanic Caribbean. Rooms are great, grounds are very nice and clean, food variety and quality is excellent for an all-inclusive standard and staff goes out of their way to make your stay the most enjoyable. The only drawbacks are the beach (there were lots of weeds the week we were in) and the fact that most amenities and entertainment, were at the other hotels in the Gran Bahia compound and quality of entertainment was not one of the best we experienced.
