Bahia Principe: "Bad area for Beach lovers" Dominican Republic Hotel Tip by cybercutie

Dominican Republic Hotels: 169 reviews and 200 photos

The Bahia Principe is an all-inclusive resort we stayed in November 2003.

It was very well priced, the food was excellent, and the entertainment was constant. there were three different restaurants you could make reservations for if you didn't feel like eating in the buffet (what? You don't like the buffet? Whats your problem?).

The main prblem was that the area it was in did not make for the most scenic part of the beach, and it was pretty dirty and desolate in the back areas compared to the hotel I had been to the time before.

Unique Qualities: The great part about this hotel was the hilarious shows they put on, and the events like "dress up in a sumo outfit and try topush eachother down"...Geez, I made it sound dumb, but it was pretty funny...

It was still a beautiful resort, tennis courts, gym, bicycle rentals...but what can I say...I am biased to this Country.

Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Theme: Hotel

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
