    Nightmare at the Grand Bahia Bavaro

    I must tell you that the negative reviews you see are 100% accurate. I always like to give the hotels the benefit of the doubt, therefore I went ahead and booked anyway that was a huge mistake. The hotel is disgusting to say the least and outdated is putting it mildly. The sell of sewer when you walk into every restaurant at the resort is repulsiving. Thank God for Oliver who upon check in gave us the option to upgrade to the Esmeralda hotel. This resort has 7 hotels most which are breathtaking but the Bavaro is definitely not that. The buffet is very small, the service was trash. We seat there for about 45 minutes no one asked us if we wanted anything to drink. We made the mistake of booking a dinner at the Japanese restaurant, OMG... The walls were visible dirty as well as the floor. There was a died roach by the cooking area not to mention the live roach that crawled out from under the chair. Don't stay at the Bavaro hotel not worth it. Do yourself a favor spend a little more and stay at the Esmeralda it's will make a huge difference. Thank you Oliver for giving us the option to change hotel at check-in, he saved our vacation.

    Friendly staff

    Very nice place the staff are very friendly. Perfect gateway. Must go to the casino and wash the live show. Many pools to choose from with bar service. Only down side are the beach vendors are a little too pushy almost to the point of harassment.

    Very poor. Would not recommend.

    Old, run down rooms. Door keys don't work. Cot provided was dirty and unsafe for baby. Bathroom ceiling falling in. Our family members had wires sticking out of wall and no plugs. Room service poor. Restaurant smells of sewage and served raw chicken. The kids water park was old and unsafe. Generally very disappointing, and not worth the money or 5* I could go on as so many complaints... The new pool area by the beach and kids club that has recently been refurbed was nice.

    Bed Bugs!

    Worst place to stay. They have bed bugs and were unhelpful, rude and dismissive. The food was edible and the hotel was outdated. I would never go back! Buyer beware, it’s on a big resort property but the worst of the bunch! Went with friends and was not impressed.

    Biggest disappointment of visiting Bahia Orincipe

    If anyone is travelling from Uk than change your pounds in dollars before you get to the hotel. The exchange rate is literally £1 to $1 ! You can’t change money if you are staying at Bavarro and you go to the reception in Punta Cana even though it’s all under one group called Bahia Principe . There are lots of mosquitoes in the room . Be prepared with mosquitoes killer spray . If you book any of the special restaurants like Indian , Greek , Italian , Japanese you will get the smallest portions of food and be hungry . If you sit in the lobby at night most of the coffee machines don’t work . This is our third visit to this hotel chain but the standard is of a 3 Star . The hotel needs upgrading big time . A really big disappointment to come to this hotel again . Will definitely not come back again to this Spanish Chain of Bahia Principe .
