Gran Bahia Principe Bavaro at Punta Cana, Dominican Republic – Vacation ratings

Large complex with many sections... many restaurants, bars, pools and limitation between section. Good for family at center, full service near beach and adult section. Beautiful beach with many people on the beach since Ambar section is open.

Positive :

Super nice site, vegetation, beach, bedroom, restaurant, lobby bar etc.. We were in the first part, and in hindsight I think it's the best part of the hotel except Ambar. You are really far from the beach (20 minute walk) but close to everything for the evening, at premium you: your own lobby, your buffet, your pool restaurant and you have access to the rest of the hotel. Internet included 20 minutes per day. We made four restaurant and all were delicious. The Saturday night gala dinner do not book in restaurant as the buffet is excellent, seafood Super good drink in every lobby and excellent sevrice.

Negative :

The only negative is that the hotel is great no matter what section you are, you are far from anything. Small note: when you travel with Sunwing, you must pay an entry fee $ 10 and $ 20 exit fee, with other wholesalers is included.

Positive :

Very nice hotel, clean, friendly staff who speaks French. Beautiful beach and plenty of sun. Large room, serviced daily with full fridge. Beautiful vegetation on the site. Proper food at the buffet, though repetitive. Gourmet French restaurant excellent. Lovely week at this hotel, but we will not be back! Too many people.

Negative :

Site way too big, if it is lost! Rooms away from the beach, but there is a shuttle service. 5 stars for a few seafood. Attention to the Japanese restaurant reservation, because there are two sections apply to the plate, otherwise a very ordinary wine card very hot! Lack of toilets at the beach. No restaurant service between 16h. and 18.30. Many times pools closed. Too many vendors on the beach and motor boats. Construction of new blocks on the site, causing noise. We have not made excursions, because it is the same everywhere in the south!

Positive :

The site is huge and beautiful. There are over 1,500 rooms and I felt like I was never waiting for meals and services. The beach is wonderful and we just walked several hours on the beach. The late night shows are no more acceptable. We benefited from the Diamond Club service and the staff was friendly and smiling. There are courses in Latin on the beach but to our great surprise, there was no place on the site for the dance. Karaoke is great fun and we had good nights.

Negative :

The site is a 5 star but a low 4 stars for service in restaurants and rooms. In restaurants we often had to ask for coffee in the morning, we had to leave even get our beer for lunch and dinner, for wine had to be patient. Occasionally staff showed signs of impatience, but luckily they had that had a smile. The chairs on the beach are difficult to obtain. There are many people who reserve (the day before) the palapas, so they are very rare. We set the dial at 5:30 in the morning in order to reserve one for the day. Even at this hour there was little left.

Positive :

We went for the second time in two years at this resort and loved it again. Nothing to say, everything is perfect. Site cleanliness, hygiene in restaurants, etc. ... This year we stayed at the Golden Section. For the price difference, it was newsworthy because this section is stuck on the beach. In addition, instead of having three a la carte restaurants you are 4. Bathrobes and pentouffles.

Negative :

This year, check in was very laborious. We can not blame the hotel because we arrived three coaches of 48 people at once! There were the lucky ones who have had their room on arrival. On my side, we had to wait four hours in the lobby before the chamber. Apart from that, there is the wine which is a rather poor quality. One thing you hated this year, too many Quebecois on the site. The past year we had just crossed a Quebec and this year the hotel was bein full. It's just that when we travel, we like that also perplexing. Not be Christmas in the camper ...

Positive :

This hotel is superb I strongly suggested. It's beautiful, clean ...... very clean, great food, extra service ... no wait, the staff was friendly, courteous and what about their smile ..... they are very cheerful! And now ....... beautiful beach! I've been to Varadero Cuba ... more exactly and I think these two beachside locations are very similar. In any case, the Gran Bahia Principe Punta Cana ..... WOW! In March 2007 I was at the Riu Taino was nice but it was not worth in my opinion a big five stars as the Bahia Principe I would say a 4 or 41/2 at most. So if you plan to go to the Bahia Principe Punta Cana .... do not worry, you'll be happy ..... what a dream!

Negative :

I actually have no negative comment but if I say something, I would say that the site is longer in length than some other sites of hotels ....... but it will be crazy .. . anyway there are always shuttles into the night .... so it's not really a problem!

Positive :

I liked the room, cleanliness. The maid was very intentioned. Although the hotel was full and everybody reserved chairs very early in the morning, I always find a seat and chairs for my family (around 10-11 am), although this was not in the shade at the beginning we always ended the day under the shade of a palm tree!

Negative :

We stayed at the hotel all week, so no assessment for excursions and visits. A fortfait of 10 days would have been appreciated, but it is not much available.

Positive :

wow! great week of vacation! We travel with our 6 year old daughter and were housed in the Royal Golden section, for me it was worth it. Let me explain, we were in the house 3, very close to the beach (benefit package), even closer to the swimmingpool and practically in front of a la carte restaurant serving lunch and dinner, we needed to away at dinner. I had read a lot of feedback about this hotel before I left and many pleignait the vastness of the site and the number of tourists, I never in a attandue restaut (meals always taken between 6:30 am and 7:00 pm ) always had a sunbed at any happiness to both the swimmingpool at the beach. With the package we had 4 Golden restaut reservations at à la carte booked immediately on your arrival, we ate at the French (great, ordered the veal) in Japanese (average) Mediteraneo and Grill (super) The beach is beautiful , not algae at all! Regarding the use of the hotel, if you smile at them, let me tell you it is much brighter than many Quéquois. My room was always clean and made before 13:00 pm. As for performances, it is true that Michael Jackson is to see, but arrived early (much to the world tonight) and the spectacle of the circus m 'was very impressed. For families with young children, they will love the Lion King show. We travel with Air Transat, as positf, to go ahead and return on the flight schedule, use smiling, attentive and quick. Chek in fact the bus en route to destination, not even need to go to reception. Council, brought with you an old card (member of a club, videotron, store ...) for the operation of the electricity shuts off when you leave your room.

Negative :

Building next to our house, so no quiet room between 7:00 pm and 21:00 pm and is bufets way.

Positive :

The hotel and the beach are really nice - clean and well appointed. The main buffet is varied. The restaurants offer a nice alternative. In particular, French and Japanese restaurant is good. The excursions are refreshing and varied. There are many areas on the beaches and the scenery is magnificent. On a group of eight people, none has suffered stomach upsets. All have been very careful not to comsommer water taps. But all have eaten all the food and cocktails, including salad buffet.

Negative :

The wine is of very poor quality. He had the look and taste of homemade wine (white and red), and no alternative choice. The acht bottle ($ 20 to $ 30) was essential for good restaurants to enjoy a meal. While he has many, access to restaurants is very limited, so be sure to book them on arrival. The check-in staff is very talkative and seems overwhelmed, which does not communicate a great atmosphere at the finish. It takes $ 30 to access the security box of the room. For a 5 star, it is surprising. The variety of specialty cocktails is limited to the republic. Remember the good Mojitos Mexican ...
