When we arrived for check in the receptionist offered us an upgrade only if we provided a tip for her "helping us out". We stayed for 4 nights and were only allowed to make 2 reservations of the 5 restaurants. This was not clear when we booked. All inclusive means, all included. We were able to get a a 3rd reservation if we tipped the receptionist again. The location of room we upgraded to was closet to the beach, which made easy access to seaweed infested beach and be prepared to be harassed by local vendors. It was a constant headache. Our room was disgusting! We asked to changed our iron and ironing board several times. The lightning was poor at best. We had to remove the lamp shades to get some decent lightning. You were only able to flush the toilet once before you had to wait 5 minutes before flushing again. The room only stayed cool if you left your room key in the slot. We did not have robes, slippers and towels, toilet paper was scarce. Floors and bathroom were poorly cleaned. On our 3rd night, someone tried to come into our room at 3am. Thankfully we were in the room and when we got to the door they were gone. Did not feel safe afterwards. You were only served strong drinks and received better service only if tips were provided to the servers/staff. The resort is huge. There are about 5 other sister hotels. The grounds were kept well manicured. Shuttle buses are provided to go around the resort. Will not be back to Grand Bahia resorts!

Staff was great. However, the refrigerator did not work in our room; but, again, we didn't report it to staff, so maybe the defunct refrigerator is on us. We ran into other travelers who were staying at some Hotel with "Majestic" in its name and they had a better restaurant deal. They had more access to different restaurants within the hotel complex. We could only have 2 reservations at the total number which was 5 to 6 restaurants in the complex. Overall, we had a positive experience.

We stayed at the Grand Bahia Principe for a family vacation in July 2018 and had a really great experience! The resort is very well layed out and the staff were very friendly and helpful in helping us learn the property and all that it had to offer. The only draw back was that they have a department dedicated to selling a sort of time share program for Bahia properties, which is staffed with pushy, arrogant, rude sales people. Excluding having our vacation interrupted with a "don't take no for an answer" sales pitch, we had a great stay in a clean, organized, well maintained and beautiful resort property. They also have an area dedicated to travel company representatives and the Travelocity/Expedia Rep., June, was a very helpful gentleman how verified our off-site activities and excursions with the local tour companies and ensured that our plans came off without any issues.

Are room was infested with mesquitos. I was eaten alive. The other resorts spay for them apparently this resort doesn't. Couldn't enjoy the night time activity's due to all the bugs. But hotel staff was super friendly and the restaurant's were amazing. Family that stayed at other resorts never had any issues. Me on the other hand looked like I had chicken pox when I left. The pools we're also amazing

Second Time With Grand Bahia

Pros: The grounds are beautiful
Cons: Staff communication and refresh towels and linens
Location: Approximately 25 minutes from the airport. Plenty of excursions to choose from but wouldnt go off the resort alone.
Overall pleased with our stay. Keep in mind there are actually several different resorts at this location under the Grand Bahia name. We thought we were going back to the all adult resort where we previously stayed 5 years ago but that wasnt the case. The resorts are beautiful and immaculately kept on the outside. Communication is a challenge regardless of the resort as the staff doesnt speak English and i know very little spanish. The staff at times could be rude if you didnt understand what they were telling you but you could tell by gestures expressions and the tone of voice. The room was clean but the linens and towels need to be updated and replaced. We would consider returning but now understand the differences in the resorts on the property.
