          Hello everyone, For the past 5 years our destination was Punta Cana - Luxury Grand Bahia Principe Esmeralda and we had no complains about it except for the extremely crowded beach/lack of chairs - they built to many resorts for a beach that remains the same, it doesn't expand :)...However, for this year we're interested in Grand Bahia Principe El Portillo. The scenery seems paradisiacal and the water cristal clear. Or at least this is what you can observe looking at the posted photos. Still, I am concerned if the water is somehow rocky...or maybe not. We'll travel with our 10 years old daughter that was probably a fish in another life and she cannot wait to spend all day long in the ocean, taking pictures with her new camera :). Can anybody give me more info about this matter? Should we expect to hurt our feet at any step we take into the ocean? we had this experience in Holguin, many years ago and for us it will be a drawback. Also, any idea how the weather is in August? If it rains a lot? Is the Wi-Fi working throughout the resort? or only in the lobby? Thank you for any answer you can give us on the above matters. It will be highly appreciated !!!
