How can someone comment on how it is now when the place is not even open. I am sure that they would not do million dollar renovations for nothing. Wait until it opens and go there before giving negative reviews and freaking out the people that have booked. I went there about 8 years ago and frankly even with the rooms needing updates I liked it. I liked the buffet and grill restaurants that were right on the beach, now with the newer hotels you don’t get that kind of a view. The food was good at the time, the entertainment the same as anywhere else. I will be booking Feb 5 for 2 weeks for $300.00 more than it cost me 8 years ago for one week. I am not going to expect the same type of service that I would get at the Bahia Principe in Punta Cana but I also am not paying the big bucks.
We were originally booked for Samana Jan 26 but that trip fell through as they cancelled the flight on that day. So now I will be saving over $1000.00 each and surly I can afford to go eat out once in a while.
So don’t knock something until you have tried it and give this hotel a chance to redeem itself.
