    1st class beach and facility, low class pool side entertainment.

    It really is a beautiful place to visit. One of the best beaches overall, white powder sand, just enough surf, and the water color and temperature are all idyllic. The facility is more than adequate, rooms are large and clean, pools are well kept and at times relaxing. Some of the evening entertainment is even quite good. The food is passable, considering how large of a resort this is. But that's where the positives end. Although there are "some" exceptional staff, for the most part they seam uninterested and distracted. All "Ala Carte" meals require reservations, which are hard to get unless you book days in advance. Strangely though, the restaurants are half empty when you get there with the service ranges from average to terrible! Very few servers (or any staff for that matter), look you in the eye, or take the time to greet you. Most of the staff seem like they really don't want to be there. In 10 days/ 30 meals, I found only a handful of servers and hosts that I wouldn't have fired if they worked for me. One can only assume that hard to get staff. It's a shame, as good manners and a friendly smile can make such a huge difference in the guest experience. You can overlook a lot of short cummings if you feel someone is trying his or her best. That is not the impression here. Unusual as it may be, the best service is in the buffet. The day time poolside entertainment is a lot of techno pop beats on a bad sound system. Seldom does the music played fit the general audience. It makes you wonder who they think their clientele is. I would estimate that the average guest was in their 60's(not their 20's as they seem to be playing to). It would be nice if they allowed at least one pool where you could just relax and maybe listen to the birds or wind or the person you're with, and where they didn't feel like they had to fill every hour with "entertainment". But alas, there is not.

    Beautiful resort, would recommend

    It was a really beautiful resort. The grounds were lovely. All the workers were super nice and they always tried to fulfill your request. We stayed at the Aquamarine in April 2024. We were in building 82, which was very conveniently located to the pool. If you like your room to be quiet for afternoon naps then ask for room not on pool side. If you like the action then the pool side is for you. The pool is very high energy in the afternoon. All the pools close at 6. The beach is a bit of a walk or you can jump on the bus. If you want to be closer to the beach then the Amber is possibly a better choice. They also have more upgraded rooms. The bed in our room was a bit too firm for my taste. The rooms were clean and had everything you need. The food at the buffet was great. We ate at an a la carte everynight and they were all very nice. Service is excellent. I would definitely go back to the Bahia Principe Aquamarine, but I think I would rather try Ambar on my next visit. I would like the upgraded room and would like to be closer to the beach

    Love this place!

    We LIVE this resort and will be back again and again. Great food, great service, awesome shows. The entertainment team goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome and included and certainly entertained. We loved the access to all of the a la cartes, the trolley service. The staff are SO friendly.

    Excellent

    I loved everything, the room, the restaurants, the buffets, the extraordinary staff. Except for the non-enforced regulation of not reserving a place at the beach or swimming pool. Very unpleasant to see people reserving places in the shade at both places for the day and showing up around 4:00 p.m. Not easy to apply I imagine but necessary, we lose our right to appreciate. Only once did the staff remove towels from the pool and that was it! I felt like applauding! I still paid for the pool and beach service but enjoyed it less.

    Absolutely fantastic!

    Last day here with my wife and have absolutely nothing to complain about. The food, the drinks, the entertainment, the workers all with smiles and so caring and attentive! Already planning our next trip here in December. There is no shortage of things to do! 11 out of 10 stars!
