Very bad behaviour
Reviewed 2 days ago

Just finishing a two week holiday from England.Today 5 or 6 guests arrived & are the worst behaved & the most inconsiderate idiots I have come across. They have been in the pool chanting & using foul language since lunchtime.
The staff are doing nothing.
This is a 5* Don Pablo not a cheap booze house.
Please do not come here if you think you are getting luxury, it's very bad.

far exceeded expectations

We have stayed several times in luxury bahia principe hotels over the years so knew what to expect. On arrival my wife fell ill t I must stress this was nothing to do with the hotel as she became ill at the airport at punta cana.
On arrival we were checked in very quickly and the butler Joanne escorted us to our room which was lovely and new she explained all the services that were available but as we have stayed in their hotels were familiar with the set up.

My wife was very poorly so i was informed by another tourist that there was a doctor on call 24 hrs in the sister hotel La romana. I was greeted by the night Manager George who was very helpful and and very informative about the hospitals and the hotel. When he visited our hotel he came over to ask about my wife and if the hotel could help in any way.

The first morning I got up and walked to the beach. I could not believe the scenery a sweeping bay full of clean sand and palm trees probably the nicest beach i have seen. Plenty of sun beds available .

The general manager of the hotel was excellent Patrico Vigoroux he offered to have a special meal with the head chef as she was unable to eat any rich food this was arranged on our 3rd night at the don pablo. The management and the hotel staff i could not thank them enough for their willingness to help and kindness shown.

I would also like to mention Dergis our tui rep who was fantastic even offered to get us an early flight home if required and asked every day if she was okay one of the best reps we have had.

During our stay we ate at all the a la carte restaurants and were all excellent the lamb in the mediterranean was outstanding and lisa the maitre de was excellent. We went for a second visit but it was her night off and you noticed the difference, The drinks service was very bad and after 3 times requesting drinks we ere told by a female supervsisor that what did we expect when it was busy! I have to say this was the only member of staff that was rude in all our stay.

The entertainement staff werevery good they worked hard to make your holiday Chocolate Nicky cappacino and Mr Woo deserve a special thanks we had such a good time.

The buffet restaurant Jasmine offered a good selection of food salads meat fish and deserts . We also had breakfast at the Dahlia outside which as nice. The snack bar for lunch had a good choice of food and service was excellent.
The hotel is spotless throughout and cleanliness of the rooms also.

The only negative was that the open courtyard was not open every night which was such a shame as it was nice to sit out however this was due to being out o season.

This was by far the best hotel in the group that we have stayed in so far and we will definately return as loved it so much. Thankyou once again to all the staff at the bouganville for making our holiday great.

Best Hotel Yet

Stayed in the Bouganville for two weeks all inclusive.
I cannot emphasise enough the quality of the hotel, the staff, the food (choice and quality), cleanliness.
It really is the best hotel I have stayed in as part of a package holiday.
Congratulations to them all for making my holiday wonderful

Amazing Trip
Reviewed 5 days ago

One of the best trip I have gone on. Upgraded from the Grand Bahia to Luxury Bahia so I cannot speak for the rooms and service on the Grand Bahia side. However, the Luxury side is nothing short of amazing. The Bedroom is very spacious with comfortable bedding and pillows. The bathroom is modern and spacious with a Jacuzzi a Stand up shower and his and hers sink. The lawns sculpting is awesome and the property is very clean and neat. The food and restaurants are great with different selection everyday. However, the most I will remember of this place is the Exceptional service provided by the staff especially the staff at the main dining room and at the pool. These guys go out of their way to take care of your needs . Well done . Will visit again

Another great holiday
Reviewed 6 days ago

This was my 2nd visit to this hotel and again I was not disappointed.

Check in was smooth as we were returning visitors we were asked if we had room preference which we did and they accommodated our request.

We waited in the bar for some friends arriving from Bristol while our cases were taken to our room.

The food as last year was really good the choices in the buffet was really good each night was a choice of 2 or 3 meat and fish. Each night would be themed from Canadian to Mexican. I want to say a big thank you to Elvin who we met last year, he made sure we had everything at breakfast and really noticed when he had his days off as service was then sometimes lacking, it seems that each waiter has a family they get friendly with and they concentrate their efforts on them. On the luxury side you have use of 5 a la Carte which can be booked through the app or through guest services, we did not have an issue getting a booking in any of them and tried all 5 and was happy with food and service in most of them our least favourite was the Asian service poor and wrong food brought. Lunch was served in the main restaurant or the restaurant by the quiet pool this was my preference as you could sit outside and the inside was much brighter, there was also food served down by main pool but not keen to use this as sometimes could be flies on the food as not covered.

This year we spent most of our time at activities pool and joined in most of games each day and got in really well with entertainment team. I did most of the aqua aerobics and even tried aqua spinning which was a good work out and something a bit different. When this pool got a bit noisy with loud Americans coming for the weekend we would move to the quiet pool which was always really relaxing and never an issue getting sun lounger any time of day.

The pool bars were great and always greeted with a smile. You could get drinks served to you on sun lounger and it did not matter if you had tipped you get same service.

Now my only criticism the evening entertainment. Why the hotel thinks that just because you are adults you want to listen to the same girl singing the same songs every night I do not know. I feel that you have chosen adult only for a reason and should not have to go over to the family side of the hotel to watch the brought in entertainment in their theatre I want to be entertained without having kids around spoiling my holiday so please management consider this when booking the entertainment and give the adults something more to enjoy.

This is not a criticism but some people may feel let down but we never saw our assigned butler once this was same last year. If it is part of the package then at least make sure that are doing there job. I would definitely go back as for value for money for adult only it is well worth it.

One more thing the gardens are kept so beautiful and the gardeners work so hard I do not know his name but he is a lovely older man and everyday would ask if we were ok and was so happy when we told him we were excellente and his garden was beautiful
