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 :

We stayed in the Ambar section is to adust only. L.hotel was very clean and fairly large room, the cleanliness was very present. No negative comments concernan hotel. The food was good but the meat was tough, but the buffet was very good and varied but after a week we quickly made the rounds. The beach was very good (less Cuba's) but still, very well. There was room and under a certain intimacy. We have not done for one week excursion to rest was sufficient. The service was excellent Ambar in terms of bar and restaurant.

Negative :

The only thing that can be negative are the a la carte restaurants. For reservations and hours of availability. Moreover all the meat dishes were not very good because the meat too tough, even though the Japanese restaurant which was very good. In general I recommend this hotel but not in the busy period.

Positive :

Almost perfect ... the staff is always smiling and available with or without pourboire.Les a la carte restaurants are easy exellents reserved except Japanese restaurant in demande.Suffisament very chair on the beach and snack bar has nearby.The Ambar section is adults only perfect for rest and the buffet is better than the Bavaro section.

Negative :

The only negative comment goes to the airline: Air Transat, the food we serve is just not mangeable.Retard departing and returning without explication.J 'had to argue with the hostess to change the headphones that m' had sold and which did not work, listen to the film.Si you have a choice take Air Canada.

The site is beautiful, clean and the staff is very courteous. Many speak French, and when traveling with children is a plus. The rooms are very well, we were in the section Haceida, the center of the site. Building of three floors and no assenceur, so for families with strollers and everything else the ground is put on an option interresting especially the terrace balcony is closed even at this level. The food is still very much at the restaurant buffet'''' although I'm not a fan of this formula. Lots of choices. The a la carte restaurant are very important, the gourmet is good if you like fish and the Japanese restaurant experience is great. MUST BOOK AS SOON AS POSSIBLE YOUR EVENING A LA CARTE. It is also possible to have lunch at the restaurant a la carte Italian and fish near the beach, which is good because deviennnent buffet restaurant'''' but with much less crowded. The pools are also very good, with sections in chacunes of them paddling pool and bars are numerous suffisanment. There are even glasses and fountains for water, juices and soft drinks that only tightens. The beach is also clean and Ea cleaned daily and there is plenty of sun, but shaded areas are soon full.

Negative :

Buffet buffet rest! Being limited to only three restaurant nights a week ao card is very bad! The Bahia Principe are sites with lots and lots of rooms, so less access because many people! If I compare the Majestic Colonial is next door, and when we went last year, we ate every night at the restaurant a la carte. No reservations required for 5 restaurant, except for Japan where there are only 20 seats per service and children under 12 years do not have access.

Positive :

Wonderful week. It rained one day! Beautiful beach for long walks. Very nice hotel! Buffet quite varied. A la carte restaurants easy to book for this time of year. Clean room. In fact I would go back anytime!

Negative :

I can not tell if it's a bad review or just a statement but the red wine was almost warm. Several employees of restaurants and the buffet only speak Spanish, it's hard to be understood but with patience ... Should be reusable glasses for the beach and the restaurants of the beach! It's crazy how many plastic cups that flow! SAVE THE PLANET!

Hotel, landscaping, cleaning, eating, pool, service, soft sand beach (although the Atlantic Ocean does not compare to the Caribbean Sea). Super hotel, very wide. Beach and very clean place. I highly recommend!

Negative :

A little bad luck with our room ... not very clean. Although my parents have stayed in the villa next week Previous and their room was very clean.

Week of May 4, 2008. We traveled with Sunwing, no negative to say. Super Beautiful week! It was sunny and warm! Rain only 1 hrs. The hotel is beautiful, it is very big, but with small c shuttle is great. We were in the Bavaro section further from the beach, but really, we had booked a lobby for us, pisicine with bar, restaurant a la carte, buffet, internet free 20 minutes a day ... The beach really the most beautiful that I've seen! 19 km wide but Great! White sand and turquoise water. We could not put the new look or peids because I saw no rock n and no coral in the sea I found more beautiful than this beach in Cayo Coco in Cuba. The psicines are very well we had access to two but we were always of the Bavaro. The buffets at a small Bavaro and Punta Cana in a Big, Much better. The food is excellent and many many choices for every taste. A la carte restaurant: Really good! The French, the Japanese (there are the food before us wow) and nationnale. Bar to drink a lot of choices, I do not drink much, I could not drink because Ca soule not really if you took one from time to time. Which wanted to take a hit saying mucho rum! The rooms, very nice and very spacious bathroom with whirlpool bath. General cleanliness really is beautiful even the ashtray (you will see hi hi hi). Great staff, all in the lobby speaks French and also the representative. Activities included bof, we there were too many waves for water-based activities and entertainment at the pool em pm. Excursions, we have had spoiled. It is expensive but really cool. We did the Catamaran day (a day to party + scuba gear, (and every day in French), the Speed ??boat (small boat are each led + scuba gear) but there are many changes boat that we lose much time. and also the buggy's super cool! with small buggies we start from a ranch to go to a beach natuel (no hotel), there are bait for those who want and after we go into a cave of clear water is bathed WOW! were then passed through a small village and there after a little riding. It's worth it. All offers to make you shoot throughout the activity. I also found that there was not too many people who want to sell us things compare to other places. And also, I bring me cakes for children during excursions, they love it! ! Bon voyage!!

Negative :

Few seafood Mosquito to supper time.

Positive :

we were at this hotel for one week and we would have stayed several more days. the place is spotlessly clean. The beach is beautifully long, we could walk for hours in the soft sand. There was some seaweed but we could find mass of room for us to soak. The buffet is very good. People are accuillants and they ask us what language we even use it! The drinks are delicious, the wine drinking, cafes Hum ... irish and capucccino (at the bar of lobbyng) Line, our representative TMR is extraordinary professionalism. Always smiling and present at times shown. She has prepared an output in a small jewelry outside the complex. I have not been able to resist and I bought a beautiful silver necklace with stone Larimar. I enthusiastically recommend this hotel!

Negative :

The restaurant is good no more. Our room was good but it has happened it is not finished (re-read and towels) There is no washcloths (facial towels) then you must need to leave a message for the maid as : 2 Toala mucho gracias por favor facial and you have your washcloths. But this is no big negative comments and it's not enough to discourage people. Go ahead it's very relaxing!

Positive :

The hotel website is beautiful, it was my second visit to this hotel and I loved it again. -The beach: There's always room for everyone. There is plenty of shade from the palm trees and palapas. No need to book your chairs. Buffet: The buffet was very good variety. But we did not go often. -Resto à la carte: WOW!!! they are almost all excellent. I tried the best Italian of them all. Try the lasagna with pesto. The Japanese, he is also the best of all ...... :) The great Mexican. The gourmet food side it was good but the service was not equivalent to other restaurants visited. And finally the grill, great food but very cold air conditioning. The staff were all very cheerful and TIPER not need to get service or a smile. We were in the Diamond Club and there was the Italian restaurant reserved for us for lunch (with map) and for lunch. Moreover, as the site is immence I suggest you be in the middle to access any faciliement. There is a train that length that the site is very popular and never expected it

Negative :

What made me a little déçcu is served all the drinks at the bar pools, that lobby. They are rather bland. Juice and a little alcohol. There are cons with champagne to compensate. And the other negative point is not at all the fault of the hotel but I want you soyer warned. Between the bahia principle and riu palace there is a hut in activities kayak, boat and so on. they are independent of the hotel website. We went to see the banana boat. They made us fooling around on the beach about 1 hour. Our business was supposed to take place at 12:00 and 1:00 p.m. we had great difficulty getting our money. Finally, I suggest you do the banana boat with the man who has only one boat directly in front of the hotel. Activity after offering him a pina colada and it will be filled. Bon Voyage!!

Positive :

Excellent service, staff is smiling and friendly. The beach is superb. There are lovely big rooms and it is very clean. No misery to have the fridge stocked everyday ..

Negative :

Site too large, lack of shade on the beach. You have to go reserve our chairs at 6am .... not terrible. It was wrong but it was jammed in like sardines, we love it less. For a la carte restaurants, sad even earlier in the week no possibility to choose the restaurant of our choice. When we went there the restaurant was not even completed, there was still plenty of room available ....??? excursions and visits in my opinion are far too expensive.
