About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Great place, we stayed for 7 days the resort was well staffed and the amenities were very good. The place is huge 3 different areas you can go plus 4 very large pool areas. The beach was well maintained. There was some sea weed that came in during the day, but they removed it each morning. Pool during the day was fun. Lots of activities . We did not go off the grounds other than excursions. Buffets were good but the individual restaurants we ate at were very good. I would suggest the premium level if you come gives you ocean views plus extras. For the most part everyone spoke English, if not they were very helpful to find someone. It's hard to say much negative we had a wonderful time.

Review:   This was a family/friends trip. The resort was huge and beautifully landscaped. We were all excited as we approached the main entrance. Check in was quick and easy, we got there about two hours before check in and the rooms were ready. The rooms were modern, clean but would need to be updated soon. There was such a great variety of food and all of them were great. Our favorite was the Spanish restaurant the food was well seasoned and tasted great. There were several pools but the beach was amazing and was miles long. The entertainment was good there was a show every night and there were fun games during the day. Not to mention a casino and a discotheque. The service was excellent and had no complaints about staff. We would definitely return to this resort we all had an amazing time that's why I am giving it five stars. I highly recommend this resort you will not be disappointed.

Review:   Beach is amazing. Drinks were good. Food was ok. Staff was mostly friendly and attentive. Entertainment was as expected. The pool is nice, the shops are varied, and overall it's pretty dang amazing. I'd go back! For negatives, I'd say the "Cigar Lounge" was a complete disappointment. The sports bar didn't have the game we wanted to watch on display, and not surprising - our "ocean view" room had an ocean view only if you walk onto the patio and leaned over the railing.

Review:   Beautiful grounds, pools and beach very nice though very difficult to impossible to find seating, our room far from activities, (few to many 'blocks' in distance), (though there is rotating open bus if you can wait; ) room dated and not that clean, food plentiful but poor quality and you need to make reservations to get in restaurants on first day. Even though we did, we still could not get in all the ones we wanted. Then you wind up at buffet....again. Many of the staff seemed to hate their jobs as not friendly nor helpful. Got locked out of room (both key cards) one evening (no apology), some things had additional fees.. rediculous. Overall was okay and reasonably priced, but won't be returning.

Review:   Terrible resort. Infested with bugs. Staff are rude and impossible to deal with. Family resort but shows start at 10pm. They have water parks which apparently are not cleaned properly. My daughter caught hand foot and mouth disease! Would not recommend this at all! The Bahia Principe Fantasia is definitely better and a true 5star resort
