Lots of yelling late at night. I believe this may have been the shuttle drivers yelling to one another about guests needing rides??? Walkie talkies would be more effective. Food was just 'okay.' No 'snacks' or beverages available in the evenings throughout the properties. You MUST eat at the buffet (very crowded) when NOT utilizing your mandated 3 'reservations' at the other restaurants located throughout. The positive...the beach area is beautiful, pools are beautiful. Too many people though. Drinks are very watered down and limited. I may return to the Dominican in the future but will NOT be returning to these Principe resorts.

Hotel personnel in general seemed like they wanted to be somewhere else and that they wanted guests to be somewhere too. Beautiful beach but crowded. Food, service, room, etc. was serviceable.

I liked the trams / golf carts for on-site travel. The buffet was great, however, it was the same foods over and over.

When we arrived the property was breathtaking, we were offered an upgrade for an additional cost , access to other areas and room service. We declined and when we arrived to our room it smelled and was horrible, I ran back to the desk and purchased the upgrade. I don’t know if this was a set up but the new room was worth it.

We have travelled here many times and always want to return. Recent restaurant additions and new features make Bahia Principe top of the list. Orbitz description does not specify guests are limited to three (3) ala carte restaurants when other providers will include all seven (7) days. This is deceptive. We purchased additional specialty evening dinners outside of this vacation package. Bahia Principe is always a good deal!

The service and cleanlines and good staff in the facility

The bathroom not clean property leak in the toilet somebody come for 2 times and never fixed the room need a upgrade

The 24 hour snack bar wasn't 24 hours it closed around around 7-730pm. The alcohol had to have been watered down because I'm a heavy drinking and i had about 10 drinks before i even felt buzzed. It's understandable, they don't want people getting drunk, acting stupid with other guest or throwing up all over the place. With all that said, i still had a GREAT TIME. Staff was helpful and so welcoming. I would stay there again.

Every thing was perfect Don’t want to talk too much about this place because I want to keep the secret of this beautiful place all to my self 😁. Huge property .first few days we walked to the beach then got tired because the place is so Huge so we took the gulf cart shuttle that constantly ran back and forth to and from beach . Driver was friendly and funny his name was cocacola if you meet him you will know what I mean . Awesome vacation so inexpensive worth every penny . Will definitely go back

The beach was the only thing good .the property was very bad

The food was amazing. Staff was nice. Misunderstanding with check in associate that stated their pools were open 24hrs and they did not indicate a dress code for dinner, which caused more delays as needing to change outfits. Other than that we had an amazing time. Drinks were great. Pool great. I would definitely return. They even treated ya special on our anniversary night. My a/c was not working in my room. They sent a tech within 5 min. Although it still didn’t work, they sent someone with a new room key with 15 min to change our room. Great service.
