    Tony, Claudio, Sugar and Victor are AMAZING!!! 100 stars if I could!!

    Love this place! My husband and I came here in January 2023 and stayed in honeymoon suite in platinum. We had an amazing experience so we are here again in May 2023 but this time we brought family with us. We stayed in platinum again. One of the main reasons we came back here is the amazing staff at the beach bar staff!!! Tony, Claudio, Sugar and Victor… are absolutely fantastic!!! They go above and beyond everyday of your stay. They are always polite, always smiling and super personable. Really good people and exceptional service. Based on these guys alone I give this place 5 stars and we will be back again in the future!! I would totally recommend this place to others. My sister has come too and already booked her next trip back. Big thanks to Tony, Claudio, Sugar and Victor for making our stay here an amazing experience! We don’t leave for a few more days but I was eager to give these guys a good review. They are just that AMAZING!! They also treat my 15 year old daughter with respect and I knew she was okay to go up for a lemonade or something on her own and I didn’t need to worry. Totally recommend this place and the platinum side! Thank you guys! You are my people <3 we will be back in the future, just for you!!

    Star employees make this a 5-star stay

    We stayed at the Grand Bavaro Princess in the Platinum Suites for our honeymoon! Overall we had a great time. We had previously stayed here 6 years ago and liked the amenities, so were excited to travel here again for our honeymoon. What really set our trip apart and will be the reason we visit again was the service we received from Tony, Sugar, and Claudio at the Platinum Beach Bar! Those guys were the highlight of our trip, and we always looked forward to going to see them. The drinks were always tasty and made to specification, and their positive energy was absolutely fantastic. Not only did they always have us smiling and laughing with them, but everyone who came up to the bar also seemed to be having a great time thanks to them so the vibe was superb. There are two buffets (main and Platinum club) and about a dozen restaurants including the Platinum-exclusive ones. The quality of the food is solid, not amazing. This could be made up for if the service was top-notch but that is also simply "solid" - while the servers are generally friendly and food comes out quickly, it is not uncommon to never see the servers after your food is delivered or have slight mix-ups with your order. Overall though, these are relatively minor issues, and some restaurants like La Hacienda have excellent food that makes up for it. Our only complaint was regarding checking in on our first day as we had an overnight flight and arrived around 11:30am. Understandably, our room was not ready as check-in time was 3pm, but we were told the room would be cleaned immediately and would be ready around 1:30pm. However, at 1:30pm, we were told it would be "5 or 10 minutes", and every time we checked after that it would also be another "5 or 10 minutes" until the actual check-in time came at 3pm and we were finally able to go to our room. We get that check-in time isn't until 3pm, but being exhausted after an overnight flight and getting led on about when the room would be ready was a frustrating start of the trip. So, my tip to you would be to make sure your flight gets here close to 3pm so you don't have to deal with it! Overall, even with the slight issues here and there, we very much enjoyed our trip and would come again. People like Tony, Sugar, and Claudio give such phenomenal 6-star service that it's easy to overlook the minor inconveniences. The rooms are great + well-updated, the minibar is generous, there's 24-hour room service, the AC works very well, etc. We think the Platinum upgrade is absolutely worth it for the private beach, free room service, and other amenities, but there's more than enough to be had without it.

    Labor Weekend Getaway 2023

    Great entertainment crew with multiple activities and the best beach with turquoise waters. The culinary offering excited my expectations. Thank all the staff (Bernie & Quique) who made this weekend getaway a blast.
