We just returned from Bahia Principe, San Juan on Feb 8 and loved it. Above all, the service was excellent and the resort was spotless. We found it very relaxing, with lots of options for activities and day excursions. They have lots of little extras included, like a stocked mini-bar that is re-stocked daily,including bottled water. The food was quite good overall, but a little repetitive. The beach was not the greatest, but the beautiful pool and gorgeous sprawling grounds made up for it! We would definitely reccomend it!

I just got back from Porta Plata Feb 3/03. It is a really beautiful resort. Nice pools, nice beach & the locals work sooooooo hard to please the customers. As soon as you finish your drink they are there so fast you will be shocked. I also really loved the three specialty restaurants but you MUST book as soon as you get there. The only thing I have to say is you have to really watch yourself with the food. When I completed my first meal, I didn't stop throwing up until the second to last day!!!! I didn't really eat anything because I was so afraid I was going to be even more sick. Other people I met or even came with were sick. Overall though, I do feel it was a very nice resort & yes, I think I would go back again....... but I think I may just bring my own food.
