    Worst experience ever

    Absolutely the worst experience. First, I had to modify my trip and change the dates. So I had to chase them all day on multiple phones. Then I simply asked for an invoice. But the thing is that their customer service is non existent. There is no way to communicate with them. Both me and tried communicating with them but they ignore everyone and refuse to respond. I simply needed an invoice but they are highly incompetent and they don't care about their customers. Their whole customer service department does not exist. If you booked them through you should report them so they are removed from the platform.

    Great service in Platinum

    Since I started coming to this resort I have always enjoyed myself; people are always friendly. I recently received the good service, kindness, and professionalism from Mr. Pablo on the Maintenance Team during my first stay in Platinum, and that's really made me a fan of the resort. 5 stars for sure.

    Greats Vacation days Days off

    Great reception if you are in the fa,ily or Platinum areas are separate reception and benefits. The general buffets are greats and you don't need to go to a restaurant or lose time doing a reservation. Ask for beers,wine and champagne. hard liquors is not strong as you go in a home real bar. The main pool need a renovation but is working perfectly. Rooms was great in the Family area ( strong recommended or Platinum). personals service area great don't forget to tips they work hard for you and you feel like a friends for them. 8/10. -1 Pool need renovation better clean -1 Restaurants need to improve. +1 Buffet was the best of the best. I can repeat this one

    Grand Bavaro Princess - Very Good Experience

    Beautiful well-maintained property is huge! Easy access to everything the resort has to offer, just be ready for lots of walking. Many of the staff speak English and are very friendly. The buffet food was pretty good overall, with lots to see and sample. Presentation was quite impressive! Thank you, Adalgisa, for amazing service in the buffet and remembering my Cokes! Enjoyed the room except for the tricky-to-work thermostat and the single thin sheet on the bed. The pool nearest the beach is lively and had the "party" crowd vibe. Definitely plan to return - 4 days was not enough!

    The resort where all things fall into right places

    To define our one-week stay in the Grand Bavaro Princess resort in one word is easy - FANTASTIC! The room (ours was the Bungalow Suite), the resort maintenance (all facilities that we were using), eating options (buffets, bars, and two a la-carte restaurants), the beach (we were NOT using the swimming pool) - add the weather at this time of the year - all of the above was of the best quality. While we may refrain from a very broad "best resort ever" (it's way too high a mark), the Grand Bavaro Princess comes VERY close to this exclamation. Our room was very spacious, the balcony was conveniently furnished - even with a built-in drying rope, the bathroom came standard with the beautiful shower and the bathtub... plus all the stuff (the safe, a mini-fridge, power outlets, a TV panel, etc.) that one might during the stay could be found in the room. The free Internet in the room worked flawlessly and with a good speed. Our three-storey cottage (#35) was located right at the pool and the beach. Reaching the lobby and the main buffet with a few a la-carte restaurants required either a 10-min walk (one of the waling options was through the beatiful mangrove setting) or a very frequently travelling shuttle vehicle; however, another - smaller - buffet was just around the corner. The food was always fresh, abundant, of very good quality and - something very important for those with kids - with different options for both adults and their children, for meat- and fish-lovers, as well as for vegetarians.The staff was VERY helful and caring, regardless of their English language skills (from very good to quite basic). Service was practically flawless... and one could find a suitable seat at any time. In general, the Bavaro beach is gorgeous... the part of it at the Grand Bavaro Princess resort is not different. Nevertheless, there was abundance of available beach loungers with shades AT ALL TIMES ... and the beach was well maintained. With the sea at this time of theyear we did not care about visiting the pool, just passing by. What else? Ah, we decided to visit two a la-carte restaurants. The steak El Gaucho restaurant was right at our corrage, sharing the premises with the Buffet the location with the Trapiche buffet (the buffet at this location is open for breakfast and luches only). We would say it was OK. The second restaurant, Il Tartufo Trattoria, was VERY GOOD, and we enjoined it VERY much. And one of us was using the clean and well ventilated gym every day ... a VERY good selection of machines! Would we like to come back? Absolutely - and bringing our Grandsons with us. Whether it would be the family section of the resort (with the dedicated aquapark and rooms with bunkbeds) or a larger suite in the general section of the resort, we can't say yet. One thing is for certain - we do wish to come to the Grand Bavaro Princess resort again!
