Horrible staff and customer service

Pros: property was pretty
Cons: reservation for food system and staff attiude
I was on a medical mission trip with 25 other professionals. Several guest in our party tried and failed to get reservations at any of the resturants with at least 24 hours notice. The staff was rude and made no attempt to accomadate any of us. It seem like you have to make your reservations for dining a few weeks before you get there otherwise you will have to eat at the buffet or snack bar everyday. there was also no hot water and the pool closed at 6pm everyday. The price we paid was not worth this at all.

Good Overall Review But Great Vacation!

This was one of the best vacations I've been on. Jose,front lobby host, Danny at the reception desk and Wanda hostress in the buffet made this hotel worth returning to again and again and again! Well kept hotel. They was always refreshing the paint and cleaning with bleach. I'm happy that I chose this hotel and the location of Samana. Great people, pleasant attitude, friendly and wanting to please. And the food was very good. Large selection at the buffet. I'm already looking for a deal from my next visit. Thanks to the Grand Bahia Principe Cayacoa staff mentioned. Without you guys I don't know if I would have enjoyed myself as much.

Great Location and Facility

Pros: stunning views
We just returned from a six day trip and enjoyed almost every aspect of the vacation except for a few minor issues including transport to the hotel and the first room assigned. Our plane arrived late into SD so we were forced to take a private car which cost over $200 us when you can take a caribe tours bus for under $10 each which no one told us about then we arrived at the resort only to be given a room that was leaking wate from the ceiling and the bath tub did not work properly after two days we were finally given another room. The facilities, staff, food, and location was fantastic and we would certainly go back

This trip was okay. I t is a beautiful resort but they had no air conditioning while I stayed for 3 days. Also my room wa s far from everything even the pool. My family and I were always taken upto the pool area by a small cart. Also the elevator to go to the beach was messed up. I would not return,.

The location and grounds are BEAUTIFUL and it was just refurbished in nov 2006 so everything looks new. When we arrived, reception was good although I was there 3 times bc the key to my room wasnt working. After the third try, someone finally came with me to reprogram the key. Reception needs more training. Constantly called the front desk (from day 1) for an iron and did not get it till the day I checked out. Was inquiring about potentially having a wedding there and the wedding rep told me everything could be accomodated and would give me a tour. She made an appt for me and never showed up. The mgr had to step in and basically negated everything she said and said they would not be able to accomodate a large group. This was afer the mgr himself gave us the run around and we had issues with him bc they were changing the rates for day passes and you could never get a clear answer. I left the resort with plans of getting quotes and even spoke to florists (which they had come in). The mgr said he would email me details and a quote and 3 months later there is still no word from him. Honestly, if a hotel is supposed to be of a specific caliber, they should look into the quality of their managers! Rest of the staff was cordial and friendly. Activities are lame although the staff is nice and tries within the hotel. The town is very accessible and close if you want to do something. Resort is good for older folks. Kids were very bored. Food was excellent. Lots of seafood.
