Spent one week with the family in the grand bavaro princess hotel. Nice beach, clean rooms and varied buffet. The menu restaurant are ok except El pescador thawe didn’t like. Special mention to Cappuccino café and the excellent service of Milca, julia and Patricia !

The Kids Club <3 MADE it AMAZING for us as parents of 5 & 4 YOs!!!

Roam816181 (Washington Grove, Maryland) on Jul 11, 2024

We had a room at the Princess Family Club (PFC) on the 2nd floor and had an overall great time. The room was not the cleanest when we arrived Monday night but by Wednesday morning the housekeeping team stepped it up majorly! The general wear and tear of being a beach hotel room for families (sand, kids scuffing things up, tropical climate, etc.) was definitely felt, but it was as clean as it could be thanks to the extremely hardworking housekeeping staff. TIP THEM! Maria and Florenny were the bartenders at the HOBBIT Bar at the Family Water Park (which was cleaned every morning) in the Family Club area and they are lovely, professional and the BEST! TIP THEM! The chefs at the MORDISCO Snack bar are so friendly and of course professional. TIP THEM! FYI, breakfast there, rather than the buffet at LA HISPINIOLA was much more relaxed, less crowded and same quality of food if not better. And you can get your eggs done however you'd like without the long lines :) Totally recommend going there if you're staying at the (PFC). Which brings me to the Kids Club=the SOLE reason our vacation with our 5 & 4 YOs were so fun... I saw the videos of the Kids Club, the room, the pool, etc. before we went but didn't know much about how INCREDIBLE the Kids Club staff are until we got there. The team is led by Maxy (lo siento for incorrect spelling) and she is super caring about the kids welfare and want to ensure that everyone has a good time regardless if ours were in the Kids Club or getting their face painted at a kid-friendly event in the Plaza near the lobby/front desk. FYI there are events there each night, as well as in the theatre. My 5 YO wanted Rainbow Dash painted on her face and Maxy saw and asked another girl to paint a cloud and rainbow since the current face painter was trying her best but was new at it. We met Stefanny, Dani, Dalvin, Leidy and so many more Kids Club/Animation team members who played with our kids, led really fun activities and worked so hard to ensure that they were well taken care of. PLEASE TIP them individually and/or a lump sum to Maxy for the team. They work pretty long hours and are always so lovely to talk to. FYI: if you have older kids and the PFC isn't for you, there's still lots of activities to partake in, just ask the hotel! TIP: I recommend walking off of the resort and crossing the street to the shops there for souvenirs. I actually didn't get to go myself but imagine it's cheaper than what's at the resort's shops or the airport, which was the only time I got do any shopping. TIP: also talk to the PFC reception to take advantage of all they have to offer, I'm sure we missed out on some things but it was our first international vacation but not our last. THANK YOU Kids Club/Animation team for making it that much more special and the sole reason to come back!

I fell in love with the suites and the beach.

brenda v on Jul 10, 2024

The suites are fine, elegant and versatile design. Beds are surprisingly comfortable, the tv had many good channels for the kids, the gym had variety, the buffet was extremely variable and fresh, loved the fresh no sugar added juices, the variety of places to find food at all times, nights sparks with the entertainment. The only thing was that the music was repeated track after same track the 5 nights I stayed. Boris was great and amable.

GREAT experience overall at this hotel minus the Mosquitoes

Antonia P on Jul 09, 2024

I have been to many hotels in Punta Cana during the last 15 years. I call Dominican Republic my country of heart. I just came back from Grand Bavaro Princess where i stayed for 15 days with my mom and i give it 4 stars. We stayed in complexe number 4 which was close to the pool and the beach for a short distance walk for my mom. -Medium size complexe: 10-15min. walk from the beach to the lobby, which is great. My mom had to wait for the little train that moves you around the property but the wait time was very long, they had 2-3 trains only for the entire hotel. -ROOM: Our room was on the first floor for my mom who is handicaped. It was a gorgeous room on 2 floors, very big bathroom with a bath tub and a large balcony. Many things were always missing in the room and we had to call the guest service many times during our stay. Tv was not working when we arrived but they replaced it in 2-3 hours. -FOOD-We only ate at the 2 buffets in the hotel (beach buffet and lobby buffet). They were good, had lobsters almost everyday. Thank you to the wonderful lobster chef Marcelo for his big smile and good energy at the lobby buffet. They also had 2 little food trucks at the beach and a drink/alcohol truck as well. The coffee shop Capuccino was my favorite place in the resort where you could have a cold frapuccino/coffee or hot beverages with pastries, a crepe or waffles. I wish they played latin music all over the resort, the lobby and the restaurants. Music was missing. They had many à la carte restaurants with reservations but we never tried any of them. -CLEANLINESS- Very clean hotel 5stars. There is always someone available with a broom to clean the public bathrooms or restaurants all day long. MOSQUITO WARNING!!! I got bitten like 50 times during my stay. It was the first time in 15 years being bitten this much in a hotel. I asked them to spray my room twice to kill the insects in the room, but i was getting bitten everywhere i went (restos, balcony, beach, lobby...). I went to the guest service and asked them to FUMIGATE the hotel. THey were not fumigating and it was terrible. That's where they lost a star for me. -BEACH-A lot of long chairs and palapas. Beach was always clean, as well as the algae always removed. Turquoise water one day, algae water the other day. It really depends of the ocean and your luck! Activities on the beach were GREAT (games, exercise, volleyball, soccer, dance classes). Bathrooms and drink/alcohol truck nearby. The pool was right next to the beach which was great. big pretty pool with a swim up bar, activities/animation and musica! I wish they had more latin music at the beach as well. -ANIMATION: They had many activities going on throughout the day at the beach, the pool and the live band/or DJ at the lobby at night. They had some shows for kids at night. They did a white party at the beach as well as a beach party, which was very good. We saw a circus show and the popular Michael Jackson show. There is a big casino right outside the resort as well as a disco (which i never attended). -VENDORS:Vendors are always on the beach to sell souvenirs, jewelry, hats, bags, beach dresses, cigars, sunglasses, hairbraids, temporary tattoos and excursions. We always negociate and never pay the full asking price. -NO AC in the lobby area, buffet restaurants, lobby bar area, live band area. A real tropical stay. -MANGROVE on site where you can see different species of trees and birds, especially peacocks. Beware of MOSQUITOES!!!

Good quality for your money

Kasper S (Tilburg, The Netherlands) on Jul 09, 2024

We had a nice holiday. Would also definitely recommend choosing Platinum. Not all restaurants are equally good and there is sometimes quite a big difference in quality. Furthermore, the hotel is located in a beautiful park where fortunately there is also an eye for local nature and mangroves. A few points to improve are: Please ban speakers in public spaces like beach and lobby. In any case, Security does nothing against it. In the platinum part, snacks such as nachos or popcorn are not available in the evening. Would be a good addition in the platinum lobby, for example.
