This is a tour of our room 5205 in Villa 5 a Junior Suite Superior room at the Gran Bahia Principe El Portillo all-inclusive resort located in Las Terrenas, Samaná Province in the Dominican Republic. Even though we had paid for a Junior Suite Superior room we were upgraded to a Junior Suite Club Golden. The only difference between the two suite types are the few extra services and the location of the rooms. Even though we were upgraded to the Junior Suite Club Golden room we did not get upgraded for the benefits (there were not many). The video starts with us walking on the path up to our room on the 1st floor (2nd floor USA), we then enter the room and turn into the marble tiled bathroom where we show the viewer the jacuzzi bath, amenities, toilet and separate shower. We then enter the main room again where we show the layout of the room which includes a look at the coffee and tea making equipment, a view of the satellite channels television, a view of the king sized bed with a ceiling fan turning above it, a look into the complimentary mini-bar, the luggage rack, the small dining lounge and the day bed. We then walk out on the balcony and show the room from the balcony and also a view from the ground looking up to our balcony. The balcony offers two chairs and a little table, if guests want to spend time there. We then proceed back into the room and have a look at the clothes cupboards and the small safe that this hotel charges 4 Dollars per day to use (a very poor 5 star hotel service!!).
