Resort Profile

Part of the massive four-property Grand Bahia Principe resort complex in Punta Cana, the Turquesa section caters well to families. The rooms could use some updating and are quite basic, the food is mostly disappointing, all rooms are a long walk from the beach (a shuttle ride is pretty much required, which has a negative effect on the Overall Beach Resort Rating), and the grounds can be crowded (pre-COVID); but the all-inclusive resort offers very reasonable rates, two large pools with swim-up bars, a good beach, excellent dining variety, a small kids water park, kid-friendly amenities such as go-karts and mini golf, and a fun entertainment team that keeps activities going throughout the day. The rooms are geared towards families, with extra perks like welcome gifts, snack baskets, and kids toiletries. Guests have access to the restaurants and other amenities of the greater complex, too. The three other sections at the Grand level are the Bavaro (B1), Punta Cana (B2), and Aquamarine (Baa2) sections (they’re all very similar, except the Aquamarine section is newer and adults only). The Turquesa section is farthest from the beach but closest to the tennis courts and golf course. The Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar, Esmeralda, and Fantasia properties (a step up in quality and price, and right on the beach) are also right next door. The Ambar (A2) is adults only. The Fantasia section (the seventh section, Ba1) is the most kid-friendly of the complex. Activities include parasailing, scuba diving, sailing, fishing, golf, banana boats, and more.

Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts is offering the COVID-19 viral antigen test on-site and at no cost to guests traveling back to the United States. Test results will be received within 24-48 hours prior to departure as required by the CDC, in written and/or electronical format. Guests should contact the Front Desk upon arrival to schedule departure testing. In the event of a positive test, the affected guest and a companion can extend their stay up to 10 days at no additional cost. A three-night minimum stay is required to be eligible for both the free on-site test and the 10-day extension.

The TripValue score compares a resort’s Overall Beach Resort Rating to its average room price (which we express as the Price-Implied Rating). It tells you if the resort is relatively underpriced (a positive TripValue), overpriced (a negative TripValue), or fairly priced (an Even TripValue), on average.
