new water park at Bahia (pictures or info)?

Does anyone have pictures yet of the new water park?

Is there an age or height limit that must be met to go to park. The water park near Barcelo Bavaro Palace you must be so high to get in.

Maybe a better way of asking, is there a section for babies or toddlers> we have 19 month old.

thank you

Sorry no info for you. I was there last month and it was still under construction. It is on the left hand side as you enter the resort behind the Premier section.

It does look like the park is geared towards small children.

zebrazeb,

The new "Boy Scout Water Park", as it is referred to as, is open - it is located just above buildings 52 & 53 at the Bahia Bavaro-Premier resort.

It is open from 8 am to 6 pm for children ages 3-12 who are staying at the Bahia resorts only.

Hope this does help.

John

We took our 6 year old there today. She enjoyed it.

All the water is shallow - below my knees.

There are a variety of slides and sprinklers for the kids. It has a bar and towel service. The only negatives are that the only food served at lunch time are hot dogs, and there isn't much shade. That being said, it is Christmas break and we still managed to find a place to sit.

It is open 10am to 5:30. The sign at the entrance didn't say anything about an age restriction, it had a height thing, but I don't remember what the measurements were. However, there were some parents who were going down the slides.

I will post photos when I am home next week.

YEAH!!!! if my toddler can go there, that should make our vacation. narrowing down to a last few resorts, and I want to be sure there is a kiddie pool he can play in. Hate to get to a resort and find out he cannot go to a pool. that would be no fun.

is there any kiddie pool in Bahia resort area, besides the new water park?

Yes. Parts of pools have large shallow sections which I have seen toddlers sitting down in. Also a couple of pools have a separate section of the pool that is shallower for kids. Not sure on the depth. I will pay more attention as we are out and about the next few days.

zebrazeb:

Keep in-mind that the new kids waterpark at the Gran Bahia is at the far-end of their entry-level 'Bavaro Premier' section, which can be quite a considerable distance for you to travel if you are staying in the main family-friendly Punta Cana, Bavaro, or Esmeralda sections! Here is the newest resort map to help you visualize this huge property:
