Gran Bahia Bavaro Question

Hello all. I just read a review that said the only place to get a bottle of beer is the sports bar. It said all other bars on site serve draft only. This can't be true can it? Thanks for any help!

I think this may be right, the bottled beer you have to pay for in the sports bar aswell. When my partner got beer it was always local draft.

It may very well be true - I have never seen bottles of beer served at the sports bar - when we order beer there, it is always served in a glass.

Glass bottles or glasses themselves are not permitted outside of the bars for safety purposes - if taking a glass of beer or a mixed drink from the lobby bar as an example, onto the patio, there are plastic cups for guests to pour their drink into - strictly a safety issue.

I did see bottled beer in the sports bar when I was there - did not order it myself, but they have a menu of the types of beers offered in bottles (as well as other premium drinks) on the tables. I believe they are around $3.50 and up per bottle.

Thanks for posting this question. I am headed to Gran Bahia Principe Esmelerda (something like that) in December and, while I have rarely seen an AI resort serve bottled beer, I am wondering if one can perhaps go off the resort (gasp) and just buy a couple of six packs of bottled beer to keep on hand. I much prefer a cold bottle of brew while chilling on the beach.

Any thoughts from the local experts on this option?

Glassware and glass bottles of any kind are not allowed at the pool deck or beach area throughout the resorts and security strictly enforces this.

You are more-than welcome to bring the cans of beer with you from your mini-bar.

Bubba Kegs are another alternative, and the bar staff will be happy to fill them for you.
