Very beautiful hotel, beach beautiful, staff very friendly and helpful.

I was very disappointed with the staff. Only a small percentage of the staff speaks English! It was impossible to ask anyone questions because hardly anyone spoke English. The food was average. Nothing great. I witnessed several arguments over saved lounge chairs because there not enough to go around! I will definitely not return to this resort!

This was the worst place we have ever stayed at. The room floor was so dirty and sticky that we had to wear our shoes in it and keep slippers on our 1yr old to walk around. We kept towels next to the bed for when we got out of bed. The staff was horrible. Most didn't speak English or acted like they didn't. Anyone we asked for help couldn't understand us or help us. We were locked out of your room for 3 days in a row. When i asked for maintenance they just gave me new cards and said they will work. I spent 2hrs on the 3rd day dealing with not being able to get into the room. I got the manager involved and they got maintenance out there and the batteries were dead. We arrived on Friday and our daughter was turning 1 on Sunday, we tried to get reservations for her birthday and they said they didn't have any that we can go to the buffet though. Absolutely no accommodations at this place for any reason. The resort was nice and we still had a great time. We 100% will not be back to a Bahia. If we had the chance, we would have moved to a different resort.

Staff was great. Housekeeping was not the best. Always forgot something.

Having traveled in the Caribbean extensively, Grand Bahia was the most disappointing stay of the lot. The food was okay at best, the hotel staff were dismissive and rude, my room was not cleaned nor restocked for several days during my 7 day stay, the evening entertainment left much to be desired, the overall condition of the resort is dreadful and doesn't appear to have been updated in this decade (or century). The only redeeming quality about this resort is the beach which is truly stunning and whose beauty can't exactly be credited to the resort itself. Though the beach is lovely, prepare yourself for an endless barrage merchants approaching you throughout the day. While I love the local crafts and items up for sale, I would much rather approach them in a dedicated area rather than being awoken or otherwise disturbed while I'm tanning/reading/etc. Will not return. The DR is a wonderful place and offers much more in the way of resorts than the Grand Bahia.

A nice place to go and eat,drink, & relax. .Pretty much what you would expect from an AI. The only downside for me was seaweed at the beach, the crowds at the buffet, and the fact that English was almost never spoken by staff and other tourists.

Big and great hotel! A lot of facilities for tourist.

Very happy with our selection. The staff at the Grand Bahia Principe Punta Cana were very nice, sweet and kind. They were very helpful in all our needs. The Hotel was very clean. Happy with our stay at The Grand Bahia Principe.

The hotel is beautiful no complaining everything is excellent I recommend for everyone it was a very good experience

People were friendly. Lots of choices to eat, things to do, and shop.

We did have a good time despite being a little disappointed with the resort. We didn't like that we could only go to certain places due to our colored wristband. We didn't know we were walking into that kind of stay. We went to a coffee shop so that we could buy a cup of coffee, but they wouldn't let us due to our color wristband. It didn't make sense b/c we were ready to pay for coffee out of our own pockets. Also, we were majorly disappointed that we had to make reservations at certain restaurants when all they were serving was a buffet. This was not explained to us, and when we tried to reserve online the second night, it wouldn't let us. I got us seated both nights but it's a disappointment to have to reserve after 8pm for buffets especially when the food was not good. Our room was fine but our king bed was so uncomfortable. It was so uneven, we thought we would roll off the bed. Also, because we were all inclusive, we were told we have a complimentary minibar in our room. The minibar was a joke. We only got 2 beers! 2 Beers! On our first full day, we hid the beers in a drawer so that we would get a restock. When we came back to our room, there 2 beers in our fridge. We went into the drawer for the beers we hid. They were not there. That means the cleaning person went snooping in our drawers, found the beers and put them back. The next day, we hid them again, the fridge was not restocked. On the good side, your staff was helpful and friendly,

.Nice hotel with good conditions. Professional workers.

Enmanuel fue el mejor Butler que hemos tenido, muy profesional atento a detalles educado y buena persona. Tuvimos una experiencia maravillosa

Had an excellent time. Staff was great and very accommodating and always went out of their way with a smile on their face. Ocean was blue and gorgeous and pools were clean. I didn’t like people reserving chairs all day by the pool and never used them. The Italian restaurant was the best!!! (I thought it would be bad coming from the tri state). Had all liquor including topshelf. The frozen passion fruit with white rum is the drink to try!!

Nice resort. Unfortunately, my family waited for two hours to get a room that was supposedly better than the original booking. No time was shared when we could access the room; so that was frustrating. Star was generally nice though some bartenders lacked any costumer service skills. The resort was massive and compromised of more related hotels. Had I known, I may have put in some more money for the fancier ones. Beach was nice but there were on a handful of days seaweed issues. But, they took a ton to collect and remove. But, they obviously could not remove all from the ocean. So, it still lingered. In all, it was Good but not Great.

Very relaxing and enjoyable. Lots of entertainment and things to do.

Nice Hotel. Great attention. Unfortunately the beach has the seaweed problem. We really enjoyed our time there. We have excellent attention.
