Travel Blogs from Rio San Juan
We get to the Resort and are excited about the beach and the pools and the drinks!! But first we have a quick nap to help with the traveling so far.. As part of the package we have 4 dinners in specialty restaurants, Mexcian, Seafood, Italian, and Mediterranean but unfortuatly the Mediterranean was closed when we were there so didn't get to try it …
bob and I get to puerto platas airport, our resort is in a city called san juan, we chose this week because bob is in university and this was his reading week. it was a pretty cool and normal vacation, we checked the place out, went out, made a couple friends, signed up for activities like encounters with a dolphin, snorckling, a ride on a …
Got up early for an adventure farther inland to tour the beautiful Ciguapa Falls. David came with us and we were joined by a funky German couple, Julia and Anis. The tour included two classic Dominican meals and an exhilarating hike through the countryside. We got to pick passion fruit for a snack on the way up to the falls. The whole trip was an amazing experience that got our adrenaline pumping and had us all exhausted by ...
... It is hard to gauge a countries poverty level by things like this, but I try my best to identify indicators of social development. I am, after two months, still getting a feel for the people I am living and working with. Getting a vision of what they have, how they function, and how it is my learning process can make a positive contribution to their community.
I once read in National Geographic, I think, that there is a new development index which uses nighttime ...
After a failed attempt to find Vacabar the day before we finAlly had directions and it was time for a great meal. When we arrived at the Agualina we walked out toward the beach and there it was....we found our own little Mecca. We were greeted with a huge smile from the owner, Cami, and a tail wag from her little dog Charlie. This was likely the best breakfast of our trip. We started with fresh squeezed juice and coffee. From there we had French toast, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Bahia Principe San Juan Rio San Juan
Excellent Vacation Resort
Just got back from our one-week vacation. The resort has excellent facilities, friendly staff, lots of food, well-planned nigtly entertainment and daily activities. I strongly recommend this resort to every one. Only thing that I don't like is "smokers" everywhere!
I have only just got back from Bahia Principe 4****sup resort in San Juan, Dominican Republic. I arrived back to Gatwick airport after an 8 hr and 30 mins flight on Monday 26th August,2002. There was a large group of us that travelled over there and all 23 of us I would say had a really enjoyable holiday. Everyone was friendly and smiley. Service was excellent and I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone. This is a holiday of a lifetime. As by my title you can probably tell! The food is good and if you enjoy a good english omelette make sure you try these! There was a choice between 5 restaurantes that I know of. which were all beautifully set out and service was good. We are definately going back next year. Entertainment through the day was excellent and I particuarly enjoyed the water aerobics and to see the animators in cute LYCRA shorts. Water sports I would recommend too and the staff are friendly and willing to help. If you are looking to go swimming with dolphins I would recommend to go in Feruary time as that was our plan. As the time we went we would have had to take a 45 min flight to the south of the island at a nice price!!!! We did the Outback Safari whilst we were away. One day out that was well worth the money!!! We had Carlos as our tour guide, WELL DONE CARLOS! He definately made or day. Also all other guides were very friendly. If anyone goes shout at one of them and see if they know what you are talking about. Do not miss this trip 100/100-excellent! Entertainment in the evenings consisted of dances that the children had learnt at mini club until 9.30 and then adults show. very funny and try to join in as much as you can with this one. Some of the things they think of are mad! Then the main shows at 10.00-11.00. Very good too. Afterwards everyone gets on stage for the club dance and leaves for bed or to continue the night away with partying in the resort centre of Pueblo Principe where you can continue with d until 3.00 or 4.00 in the morning or the kareoke bar until 2.00. A very action packed holiday. Also the animation team are very friendly.
This resort is beautiful. Rooms are simple but clean. I'd bring some RAID with me to squirt the little ant like creatures that get under the door. Also take some OFF for the sand fleas at night - some people were covered and boy do they itch. They have little buses to take you
An Incredible 4* superior hotel, a must stay!
My partner and I visited in June 2002. The hotel provides a friendly atmosphere and the staff ensure your every whim is catered for. The rooms all have a/c and a mini bar which is stocked daily, along with a full bathroom and Satellite TV (21 channels). The resort itself has it's own 2km private beach, the sea is calm, lots of water sports to participate in, 5 restaurants, casino, hard rock cafe, caribbean disco, souvenir shops, internet cafe, 24hr doctor and pharmacy, tennis, pitch and putt, crazy golf, basketball, football (soccer) the list is endless. We went on an all inclusive package so food and drinks were continuously flowing, great fun. I'd definitely go again, I recommend you do to, enjoy!
One of the best holidays because you don't need any money unless you want to shop or go to a casino. The staff are the friendliest and best teachers especially the Spanish language teacher, dance lessons, arobics and scuba lessons. Makes you want to return soon. Everyone is friendly including the other guests which exchanged email addresses. I didn't hear any complaints about the hotel or staff. You do have to remember to take a facecloth. Some hotels have them, others don't.
all i can say is how awesome this place is. i never realized how close you can become with a group of people in one week. i balled my eyes out leaving there, it's such a warm place to be, and i'm not talking about the weather..i mean the people and your stay. they employees are so awesome there, and they do all they can to make your stay a pleasent one. i would like to get a hold of some of them to keep in touch. if anyone has any ideas..please write back
Review of stay at Bahia Principe, Dom Rep
Fanntastic service and excellent food of all varities. The staff couldnot be more friendly or helpful. Activities for all ages, catering for individuals, groups and couples. Beautifully laid out in well kept, stunning grounds... busy or quiet, the choise is yours! Everyone we spoke to was delighted with the hotel and anticipated returning at some point. A wonderful experience. Obviously excellent management. The staff should be appropriately rewarded for their committment and excellent service.

ALL ROUND WINNER IN MY VIEW!!
My husband and I spent 2 weeks at this wonderful resort December 2001. The local people who work in the resort made our stay so enjoyable. They are such warm, and happy people.They can be caught singing and dancing while they work, they are lovely. The buffet food was great, the a la carte meals good too. The rooms were clean and lovely, the maids leave hibiscus flowers all over the room. There are young dancers who work at the hotel and they are constantly trying to teach you the merengue. The weather was awesome, topless sunbathing, bar opens at 10 am, the ocean is warm and gentle for swimming too. The night life is great with people coming alive at 11 pm to dance to a live Carribbean band until 3 pm .Beware of rip off vedors on the beach. The little cars drive fast too through the paths to the condos, step back and watch out. All in all it was fabulous, two happy Canadians.
A wonderful place to be!
Bahia Principe resort is the most spectacular home away from home. This heaven can't even be put into words, it is undescribable. I just left Bahia Principe on Saturday and I already miss it, I would go back without a doubt. I am counting down the days until I can go back. My vaction was packed full of non stop action and excitement never to be forgotten. You have got to spend your vacation at this paradise.
