Friendly staff but ouch! Watch out for the sand bugs

Pros: Free breakfast, Quiet
The staff is amazing. The food was not bad. The room was small and the sand bugs were so bad we were glad to leave. Also there were smokers everywhere. It was awful. We couldn't enjoy the show at night because EVERYONE was smoking. The volleyball was nice and fun for everyone. The hotel did a great job entertaining us but would sometimes take over the activities with the kids and the kids had to wait way too long. All the smokers and the bugs is why I wouldn't go back.

It’s quite clear that at one time Bahia Principe San Juan was a very nice property. Unfortunately, it seems their parent company Grupo Pinero hasn’t looked in on them in a while. All my efforts to have a good time at this resort were regrettably in spite of the problems I had with my room. The shower didn’t work right, the toilet bowl didn’t flush right, and the air conditioner leaked. If I hadn’t stayed at their resort in Punta Cana a few years earlier I would of never stayed at this property. They still have hard keys on their guest room doors so you only get 1. And, as for checking your balance on TV, don’t even try. In fairness, I never felt unsafe and the sheets were clean. When the only outdated ATM machine they have stole my card (and after they told me I had to take an hour taxi ride to pick up my ATM card). The customer service manager Aynez was able to retrieve my card from the person who collects and refills the machine. She almost turned it around but upon checking out they didn’t even have the class to pick up the $26 bill for dry cleaning I had after their air-conditioner leaked all over my clothes. Even if the food was good, I would’ve had more good things to say at about this resort but unfortunately the food was terrible. The only good restaurant they had was the Italian restaurant Dolce Vita, if you have to stay at this property I would suggest you make all of your reservations “Italian” Once again, in spite of the hotel my family and I still managed t

The hotel is in need of some TLC..its old and tired. All who work there are very courteous and eager to please. The resort itself and the rooms are tidy and clean. The beach and the views are beautiful. I'd say the food is mediocre at best. Nothing is ever hot and at the small beach buffet the same things are served day after day. The casino has 16 slot machines. 8 of those are up against a wall. Of the other 8 only 7 worked. There was a black jack table. The hour drive from the airport is worth it. Its a safe location and the resort is huge. Golf carts pick you up whenever you call to take you from your unit to the lobby to the casino/shops and back again.

At best the hotel is ok.

Cons: Beach water is very muddy due to 2 rivers that flow into it. Very disappointed, very few people got in the ocean. Staff is rude, and don't like to work, not all staff though. Got 105 mosquitos bites in 11 days. Even after wearing repellant cause resort is in the middle of a forest. In our room we found a roach and a small lizard. Tours are falsely advertised. Pro: Food, night entertainment, kids daycare.
