Very recommendable for a successful the beach holiday. Pure sun bathe each day and an excellent and varied buffet. Only the long flight from circa 10 hour is very strenuous. But it is worth taking a trip to the dominican republick to do. Highly recommended are trips to the inland view, around country and people to meet. read hotel review

    Main pool: were always small animations made (aqua fitness, samba lesson,.), music was played, but it was never annoying. other pools in the area: about 5 pools, you can all use, one was very loud, since only drunk teenagers and one was us too calmly, which was in the luxury resort. All a bit überkanditelt :-) Disco: from half 12 opened, we were there, was not so our case too loud, too crowded and too many were very drunk, we have about 2 hours dancing. But it was ok, despite the whole drunk. Beach: beach chairs available, until 10 one has still a good choice, then it is a bit cramped with the pool chairs, the beach is very clean and the bar/restaurant is also not far away.

    The staff was the knaller. You had it already in the morning in a good mood. English could all. With german one comes not far. With us on the first evening the backup rausgeknallt. As soon as we had announced that, someone came and cared for that. Even without a tip, you were always well treated and they were all nice.

    The bed was huge and comfortable. Then we had a couch (also referenced as 3. bed is used) and a small table with two chairs. Climate is easily operate and a safe you can rent for a fee. Iron is even available! Coffee maker is in the room and the minibar was re-filled every day (water, beer, Pepsi,.) The bathroom was super. Very clean and big enough. We had a jacuzzi bath. Of course, a highlight :-)

    We were in the back part of the hotel (about 800 meters to the beach). That was however no problem, since constantly small buses drove. To the airport it was about 30 minutes

    There was a main restaurant and 2 on the beach. But you can à la carte food. But you have to reserve in advance. Of these, there were about 7 (spanish, dominican, french.) We liked it delicious everywhere (we were with the japanese, dominicans and bbq) and in the main restaurant, there was always very much selection, among other things also, as every evening another topic gave (asian night = sushi, italian evening = antipasti). And for the children there was always a small corner only for she was with nuggets, etc.. :-)

We all loved it! Grounds were very nice and well-kept! Large room with a king bed! The whole service was top! There was nothing to complain about! All super friendly and helpful! I the vacation ago here already some reviews and ask me honestly what the people sometimes for conceptions have! The only thing i as tip can, if you a lot of value on peace, this hotel is perhaps less recommendable! Is always something offered! The area was very large and there were naturally also accordingly people there! But everything was good! The way to the beach is a ... bit further, but that didn't disturb me, one can to foot or with the hotelbahn the all 10 minutes! Also a big compliment to the programs and entertainment! Great! The food was very varied and tasty! Is something for everyone! Recommended are the a la carte restaurants! So all in a beautiful holiday and definitely to be further recommended! read hotel review

Hello, First of all we would like our understanding of the many of the negative reviews to say. But we must directly to start a single negative vote. The airline ' arkefly' is absolutely not to be recommended. From Hamburg the oldest machinery begun this airline probably has. Bad service on board, you don't get the booked seats, because the machinery be changed constantly. The food is just sunday But now we come to the 100 percent recommendation for this wonderful hotel. read hotel review

    The hotel is located about 20 minutes away by train from the airport. From the beach you could go on to the left and right for hours on the beach. The waves were due to various storms in the atlantic unfortunately very high. So for small children is the south (caribbean part) better suited.

    The service was really great! Except for in the lobby has a woman working as a waitress who apparently had no desire for working and one has noticed, not friendly no smile. One has already times a bad day, but they had 14 days a bad day. The beach towels you could daily 1 times change and instead of the map we wanted right new towels so that we didn't start until 8 hours had to wait and early to the beach as the employees gladly also times later at the towel station were. One day we were about: 20 minutes at the towel hut at the pool and on the staff maintained it new towels out there until another employee and attentive was in the cabin and the competent staff asleep found. Otherwise are all very friendly and in no case pushy

The Gran Bahia Principe premier is a very well-kept area. The whole complex has 1290 rooms, which countless houses. The entire hotel is in very good condition and very clean. Everywhere is deseamed, the gardens were well-kept and there were all few meters trash can for the guests, so that they were not the trash everywhere down. Because of the size were small trains, with everything on the complex to reach can. Usually you do not more than 2-3 minutes for the next shuttle to wait. The noise, we can only say: if you want a large hotel bay should ... be above be aware, that you are not the only guest. Therefore carefully what you want and to complain not afterwards and about the noise complaints. Who looks for peace and recovery should be a small hotel and not a megaanlage. We have also it was not so loud, as some reviews. We felt very comfortable and we could prima relax, without noise and commotion.

    Many, many pools, children's pools and jacuzzis spread over the whole area. Entertainment and shows, disco, shops, bars, casino, Midget Golf, and so much more. There is for all and every what and who not want must also not participate, it couldn't have been better. At the beach are so many beach chairs and umbrellas, if you want you will find what. Whether in the sun under the umbrella or under the palm. Perhaps not in the first or 2. range, but you would find it. You just have to be prepared, also a few meters along the beach to walk and not wait, that directly a beach chair at the entrance for a ready. Also the pools was always something to find, you just had to keep your eyes on your way. Towels at the beach were and inclusive at the pool. The beach is so nice and also for swimming in the sea is great. There are lifeguards on the beach and this also fit really on.

    From Punta Cana you are in about 40 minutes drive from the hotel. Outside of the hotel, there is actually nothing! If you wanted to do something, you are already on a taxi or a trip depends, both is however very expensive. If you for this hotel decides should one be already clear, that this is a seaside holiday and you a lot of time on the grounds anyway. To the beach we always got the train. To foot one is about 10 minutes on the way, since, that premier in the rear part of the plant is.

    The staff was always friendly to us! There was nothing to complain about and the without tips. Only the maid a Dollar of us. We stayed at the restaurant never tip and are still friendly and courteous service. You never had to with a banknote signs in order to be served, that has with us very well without them. Maybe it helps simply, a friendly face to make, you're on holiday! Even if the restaurant was full, we never longer than 2-3 minutes for our drinks have to wait. The maid was reasonably clean and was always at the latest at 10 o'clock in the morning finish. There were never problems with missing towels or the re-filling of the minibar. We are with english well come through and you shouldn't forget, that in the dominican republic speak spanish is the national tongue. It may be the one or other maids don't speak english, we find not tragic. It is with hands and feet always and english actually, what more could you want? In the hotel there is a physician, a pharmacy, laundry... And also care of children, that everything but we didn't use it.

On the balcony there was also a seat for two. A bathroom with jacuzzi tub, toilet, sink and hair dryer. It was clean! The room safe costs 4 Dollar on the day.

    There is the see dali than buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner and on the beach a few buffet-style restaurant for breakfast and lunch. As well as a variety of à la carte restaurants for the evening. The dalias (main restaurant) is not really good, but we also cannot say, that it was bad. But really we were not thrilled. You can eat good food, but a culinary maximum output looks differently. We have our tour guide on the spot and to have promptly on the same evening a response from the customer service got, where it did not taste us and what has disturbed us. Interestingly was then, the food was better. We were pleasantly surprised, that someone for our complaints interested. Really great and also very good, was the Las Olas on the beach. Super nice to sit and tasted better. There is the restaurant twice and the Las Olas ii which 10m away from the pool than the Las Olas i always only half full. Really good are the à la carte restaurants. These use. Reservation is needed, that should always at the beginning of the holiday to be made, because otherwise possibly no spots available.
