La Suite que me asignaron tenia filtraciones en el techo,el aire acondicionado NO enfriaba correctamente y ciertas áreas tenían telas de arana.
Por otro lado las comidas a la carta son exquisitas y las atenciones son buenas al igual que su show nocturno.

Room Tip: before check in, get in to the room

While this resort is rated as a 5 star, I would argue that it should no longer be ranked so highly. We started out with a junior suite, but asked to be moved due to the poor condition of the bath tub. After showing us 3 other rooms in the bungalows, all with leaky roofs (a likely cause of the moldy smell we encountered), we were moved to one of the Honeymoon suites. An improvement, but not up to the 5 star standard we've experienced at other resorts.

The meals were very good. We enjoyed both the buffet and the a la carte restaurants. It is best to arrive early for the a la cartes as they fill up pretty quickly and there can be a bit of a wait if you get there after 7. We also discovered that not every a la carte was open every night (not sure of why that was).

We found the wait staff to be attentive and friendly. The Christmas Eve and New Years Eve dinners were especially delicious. The "McPrincess" snack bar on the beach serves tasty hamburgers and french fries. Their hotdogs are okay, but are more bun than hot dog.

The beach was fantastic. The sand is incredibly soft and there was not a pebble or shell to be seen. We had a blast swimming in the giant waves. There were always plenty of beach chairs available. Yes, the vendors make their presence known, but generally don't bother you if you don't look interested.

Speaking of vendors, it was almost impossible to enter the main lobby's restaurant without being approached by the time share salespeople. It got to be somewhat annoying.

The resort offers carts to drive you throughout the property, but we usually just walked as nothing was more than a 10 or 15 minute walk away. Careful - the stones on the sidewalk could be quite slippery when wet! The grounds were generally well kept, but again some aspects appeared to be in decline. For example, there were a number of empty cages as well as garbage in the ponds in the ecological park.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay, but likely won't go back to the Bavaro Princess. At one time, it probably was a luxury resort but without some renovations/upgrades the Princess should no longer be making such claims.

Just got back from Punta Cana, (3) trip twice staying at Bavaro Princess. I recommend the platinum upgrade, my husband and I had a great time even though it wasn't sunny everyday. Bavaro Runners was a great excursion, Sammy and Johnny were great tour guides. Looking forward on going back!

Within 2 hours of arriving we were ROBBED from our DIGITAL SAFE. You put in your own code for the safe.Guess who can open the safes . I WONDER WAS IT SECURITY. They only LAUGHED at us. RONALD the manager is only a JOKE. He would not call police. When I got home I contacted the Princess group of hotels main office in SPAIN .There reply said it is not there policy to call the police. AGAIN THE PLACE IS FULL OF ROBBERS.

Tremendous spot on the best beach in the DR. Bungalow rooms are top notch and staff couldn't have been better. Restaurants were very good with lots of choice
