excellent getaway

An exceptionally beautiful place. The facilities are immaculately kept, the food is very good, drinks are so-so, but the staff is friendly and very helpful. Front desk people have a chip on their shoulder but they do their job as required. The Samana bay is gorgeous, the beach perfect, and the elevator ride quite interesting. The gathering area overseeing the city is outstanding, the music great to dance to, and the service on point. Take the family and enjoy.

relaxing gateway

The hotel was comforting & relaxing. But I don't go away to relax. Hotel policy prohibits washing cloths to its customers, cloths are considered a "luxury". Hotel doesn't offer jet skiing or parasailing. Not to mention, this website only offered me Santo Domingo airport which is 2 hours away from resort. Ridiculous. And I booked my stay at an "adults only" resort, only to get there & see that it was false advertisement.

Very nice hotel

I chose this hotel based on the ratings and comments from an online hotel review website. The location of the hotel is awesome and the staff were all very pleasant and attentive to my needs. The room decor needs to be updated and the gym equipment, but other than that, it was avery nice stay. I did not like the fact that the advertise as an adults-only hotel but make no mention that they switch to family from May to October. I booked the hotel because it was supposed to be adults-only, but I went in June and they had switched to family by then. That was the only major disappointment.

Excellent location, lacks everithing else.

Booked this hotel because stayed at another Bahia Principe and liked it and the view of the location in the pictures. It was breathtaking, loved it, but that was all we've got. Everything else was mediocre the food, drinks, entertainment, Etc. If you are looking for just R&R vacation this might be the place for you. JD

Not worth the price

I will never stay at a Bahia resort again. It was impossible to get a reservation at the specialty restaurants. The bathtub was old and worn. The hotel lost power and could not get the generator to start back up. After 8pm there were no activities or entertainment.
