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 :

Go ahead! A paradise. I traveled a lot and it's one of the largest hotel I saw. Service. A buffet quite delicious even a section offering diet in the morning. For those who like to celebrate later, there is a section of the fun a little removed from the site. The facilitators are present but they must go to their section or nobody bothers you. To stroll on the site there are shuttles that operate day and night. A positive, no queue to book your a la carte restaurants and you can book your restaurants at once. I traveled with Air Canada which gave us the choice of four à la carte restaurant rather than 3 and the safe was free. The beaches are endless and heavenly. I went from 16 to 23 November and I paid the $ 1023 and it was worth! I recommend it. PS I did not tour so do not include 8 tener

Negative :

For my part I have nothing negative. Suggestion bring your thermos cup'''' take care of the environment.

Very nice site. Many choices of restaurant and food very good. The people are friendly. We had fun

Negative :

The service leaves something to be desired in the a la carte restaurant. Service too long but I think it's just a lack of experience.

Fine bright sun shows I liked, I'm going to every night.

Negative :

Have is disturbed by the maids at 23:00 h.pour our chocolates, even if we have the poster hanging in the door. They repaired Palapas (7) whereas they were missing for the large number of tourists. Meals a la carte not available until 9:30 p.m. H. Not hot. The Golden is no longer what it was a cause of AMBAR that takes over your life.

Positive :

This complex is very clean and well maintained. The buffet food was excellent and very diverse. The a la carte restaurant Le Gourmet is probably our favorite. The Grill restaurant and the Japanese are good. The drinks in the lobby are not to be missed! The sea was incredibly beautiful and there was almost no algae and rocks at the bottom. We have been to the island of Saona. It's worth being seen at least once in his life, and do not forget your cameras. We also sent the Bavaro Runner. It was also great.

Negative :

This complex is too large. We had just wipes the first day. It is always the same songs coming back in the lobby and pool.

Positive :

Very complex construct, the shuttle service of the site is very effective. The beach is beautiful, the staff is courtoi. The restaurants are very good and the buffet really noteworthy. I stayed in the Royal Golden section and I recommend it because it's the sections closest to the sea and there are a few little extras including a la carte retaurant and an over night service .

Negative :

We must naturally find points of improvement then I would say that the steak house is really common, I have chosen by default because some restaurant was closed during my stay.

very nice, very clean rooms and the ground a lot of employees across a bar, restaurant, golf, entertainment good evening entertainment I tried the Japanese restaurant. great buffet for all meals, fine, I went around the buffet and always found something to my taste I even ate a duck tonight. white sand beach, very little seaweed, a few waves but very pleasant. little train that takes you from one end to another ground every 2 minutes. no matter where you are located, beautiful view. stylish and professional staff peanut butter for breakfast

Negative :

nothing to say this is my fourth hotel in Punta Cana and the Bahia Principe is the best the others are good too (Caribe Club Princess, Punta Cana, Bavaro Princess)

Positive :

The Ambar, it's heaven on earth! We are two very demanding people, we are in the early fifties and we love the luxury, We Love Hotels Iberostars, and Riu. We were delighted, we often go to Punta Cana in 5 stars hotels, and we rated this hotel among our préférés.Le site is enchanting, the vegetation is lush, the sea is beautiful, the staff is courteous, the rooms are very beautiful and well maintained hotel is great and very very propre.Nous had already alien, 18 months ago at Pricipe Bahia Punta Cana and we spent a great vacation, but at Ambar this is only for 18 years and +, we enjoyed the tranquility, but when we wanted more excitement we had the opportunity to go to the section of Punta Cana. For food, only a small detail, lunch at the restaurant from the beach, it's always the same., But no one dies of hunger, far from là.Je recommend this hotel, and we will return soon.

Negative :

Not much to blame, except lunch at the beach restaurant, the menu is repetitive, but no one dies of hunger. The a la carte restaurants are good but could be better, not enough seafood buffet night we went to the Punta Cana, there are some nice surprises, langoutes and shrimp, each evening the theme is different, are more choices than Ambar. Go there and you will love your vacation.

Negative :

The only negative comment rotten kids club, we have made other 5 stars hotels in several countries and the kids club child usually wonderful that the girls of real lazy, she planned to have acitvitées but they make no n in which n mpretexte not have enough children. Our children love to come meet us at the beach and generally we pay for this service, but in this case we have left two hours and two too many

Positive :

Travel off a week from 7 to 14 September 2008. Extraordinary temperature. Very large spacious room. Extremely clean. Ask the cleaner wipes leaving them a little note "Toalas face." They will put you in every day. Very good choice of food at the buffet. Theme nights for dinner menus vary: Italian, Mexican, Dominicans, Spanish, Asian. At lunch, all for everyone depending on your habits. Same for dinner. A la carte restaurants very well, book your arrival. It changes the buffet and not found the same thing as buffet despite what some say is totally false. For my part, I experienced the Japanese, Italian and Mexican. No complaints. One very important thing, if you want the service to bar, give a tip of $ 1 is enough. The server recognizes you and you will enjoy. You will receive your glasses before anyone else even if there are 6 people in front of you. Also think about the cleaning lady. $ 1 a little on the pillow every morning is enough. $ 1 for them gives them 35 pesos ... $ 7 tip for the room for a week is just for us but a lot to them, so ...

Negative :

The pool water is too hot (equivalent to ambient air, or 35 ° C. The basic principle of a pool to cool off, not taking baths. Far too hot water. I preferred the water from the sea traders of the great public square (Pableo Main / Main Building) are harassing. They challenge you constantly. Internet service too expensive ($ 12/1 hour) and air conditioning too high). Beware of temperature differences, you might get sick (35 ° C 15 ° C outside VS inside). Cigarette butts and straws under any pallatos and chairs near the bar. Smoking respect others dammit. Parents of children, made of discipline with your children. Tell them we do not throw his glass and straw on the floor in the sand. Tell them you do not jump in the pool next to people who are already there. Anyway, it is forbidden to jump into the pool under the Regulations. The excursions are expensive, a real scandal. The cheapest is the visit to the capital by bus (3 hours to go, and 3h trip) to $ 72US. So tour $ 72 to $ 109. You lose 6-hour drive in your day and Santo Domingo is without interest. Only the visit to the aquarium in natural snorkeling is worth: $ 83 U.S. or the Bavaro Runner (guided safari style) to $ 85 U.S. Please, do not encourage trips that are not environmentally friendly such as: niaisage in 4 wheels on dirt roads, the 4x4, speed boats. Gas flaring useless ... Not good house wine. Buy your wine bottles in duty free shop at the airport upon departure. They have special bags that protect ($). Servers of the open buffet with pleasure without saying a word.
