Affordable resort with on-site facilities like two pools, a kids club and tennis courts
Disappointing cuisine and customer service, some say
Rubbing elbows with its sister properties, Grand Bahia Principe Turquesa and Luxury Bahia Principe Esmeralda, Grand Bahia Principe Punta Cana offers vacationers an all-inclusive experience at what previous guests described as a very competitive price. Suite rates not only include a bed – and a hydromassage tub and a private balcony or terrace – in one of the resort's 756 brightly colored accommodations, but also meals and drinks at any of the seven on-site restaurants. While past visitors appreciated the lack of sticker-shock, they cautioned that the cuisine and customer service are not up to par. However, travelers have access to two pools, a beach, a spa, a kids club and a fitness center. Another bonus: The all-inclusive package covers various activities, including nightly shows, nonmotorized water sports, tennis and scuba diving lessons.
