Best service ever from our check in with Cristobal at the front desk who is the nicest and most professional you will find. It was our anniversary and we were treated with extra special care. The resort is beautiful everyone here works really hard to keep it that way.The service is excellent everywhere so please even if it is an all inclusive bring a little extra so you can tip they really appreciate it and work to make your vacation a good one. Thanks to Goof our Air Canada rep at the hotel great guy if you need anything or have any concerns.Big thank you to Angel andJesus at the lobby bar...Oscar who is an excellent service at the buffet restaurant always singing with a smile. The animation team Leonardo..teddy bear..Yohan and trainee Bladimir who is a full of energy he is awesome a real asset to the team. Cannot forget Carui our server at the beach buffet and Keyla the hostess who made our lunchtime a great one. The pool bar great guys working hard to keep everyone happy...Dahlin...and Jhordanny...try the passion fruit margarita. The food is good at all the restaurants tasty special treat for valentines seafood and lobster. Overall an awesome time...thanks to all the people that made our vacation a wonderful one.

If you have booked this hotel and you are coming on TripAdvisor to see whether you have made the right choice or looking to get an idea before you book then i would say DO IT!!! Went with a friend to celebrate my 30th, it was amazing and i honestly don't understand the poor reviews. Aesthetically it looks lovely, the gardens are beautiful, people are so friendly and just want you to have a really good time, the food is good. The rooms are nice, clean. i cant fault it.. really. The negatives...? the hairdryer in the bathroom isn't that great and if you want wifi over the whole hotel you need to pay for it which i think is about $59 for the week. The sea isn't crystal clear blue but that is not the hotels fault and the rest of the beach is lovely, people saying on reviews that you cant swim in it, well that's just ridiculous , you can, and its really pleasant. Overall I would say that if you spend your holiday here you will have a lovely time !

No one greeted us upon arrival, had to walk and find our room we did not get a ride there. The beach water was brown came to find out from an employee that the sewage runs into the beach water so you cannot swim in it. An ironing board that was about 24inches long impossible to iron a dress on and was broken. Maintenance came to fix it not fixable. First room was horrible they changed the room the next day. I realized a day letter that I left a jacket in the previous room and when to the front desk to ask it was hell getting it back, they tried to keep it. Food was horrible nothing for vegetarians.

Great, but we were lied to. PLEASE READ.

If you are reading this because of the title, skip to the third paragraph. When we arrived at the hotel, service was great for the most part. However, the showers for people on the first floor had really poor output in the morning, so we had to shower at 8:30 PM to get decent output pressure, and the doors would still allow massive amounts of water to spill out even when closed. We called the technician, but he NEVER arrived to fix the issue with the shower, so we just used the shower the best we could. If you live on the first floor, you're in for a surprise: You will often have bugs crawl inside your room. A simple fix to that problem is covering gaps under your room doors. The water was murky and barely possible to swim in. On the first day, the sea smelled vaguely of sewage. On the next day, we became desensitized to the smell. One redeeming feature of it is that there are actually workers that gather up boulders from the sea.I would still advise the reader to be sure to wear swimming shoes in case you encounter a boulder. If one were to walk all the way (not far at all) to Beach Club Playa Nueva Romana-which seems to still be under construction (very few, if any people were present)- one would get a very clear and isolated area of water, but there are boulders there, so watch out. The food served every day was great, and the cooks were as well. The smoothies were great as well. When you arrive at the hotel, you will be given a brochure which lists possible tours you can go on. We ordered two.The first tour we ordered, to Santo Domingo, was absolutely fantastic. Our tour guide was Mel, I would definitely recommend him. He was VERY informative. Be sure to ask for Mel if you order a tour to Santo Domingo. However, the biggest disappointment came when we ordered our second tour, the Outback Safari. The advertisement for the tour, which is what got us interested in it in the first place, showed tourists going down a river in a kayak and depicted the native inhabitants. That was a lie of the highest caliber. There was not even a remote possibility of seeing either of those on the Safari tour. However, it was still very informative and lived up to its other promises. We were promised a room with a liquor bar and a Jacuzzi, but got neither of those things. The beverages were bad,mostly ice. If you want a decent beverage, you have to go all the way to the reception bar. There is a beverage that is sold in the Dominican called "Mamajuana" (No relation to Marijuana). The lowest prices for the beverage are either in the city or in the liquor store by the church. Just don't be surprised when the packaging for the bottles of Mamajuana gets searched at the airport because of the name. The entertainment was great. There was a night dedicated to Michael Jackson's songs, which we loved.

3 Stars not more!!!

Not a 5-star hotel. Maximum 3 stars - only. Of course, everyone has their own visions and are probably quite different to mine, but I would like to share my experiences and not the other guests one. I would like to start with the first day and the arrival at the hotel. During the check-in, the guy at the front desk recommended a safe for 4 dollars a day. For the total amount, I could have bought a safe - but what is it - is after all a holiday. After check-in, we were driven to our room - service here was excellent. Still a smile on the face and for January it was really warm. We looked around the area before we went for dinner - ups the food was quite cold - maybe we were too late - no, that was happened every day. The breakfast was quite good for us, as we had only toast and jam - many were murmuring because everything was cold. By the days we found out, that the coolness in the food was until our departure - only in the La Gourmet restaurant you could enjoy really warm food - that was TOP. On the fourth day, a new "Russian" couple moved into the room next to us and then it was really noisy every night – party time from about 00:30 until 03:00 clock. We couldn’t relax at the beach or by the pool because of the entertainment marathon. In the evening, there was the highlight - the entertainment program ran parallel to the children's program and the live music. If you like something like that, you are at the right place. Shopping possibilities are also available on site, but please adjust to the abnormally high prices - e.g. a sun cream SF 30 costs 23 US $. The service was good in general, but the preferred ones were already waving in advance with the dollar bills. We have also given tip, is so synonymous, but after the service and not before. Our room was quite large, unfortunately very noisy and the bathroom so la la. The shower was in the first few days barely usable and I addressed that several times at the front desk - after a few days I fix it by myself and we could then use the shower (more or less). The air conditioning was very noisy but worked and we could switch it off in the night - which was anyway no matter, because our Russian neighbors were still there. If you are looking for a turquoise blue Caribbean beach at the Grand Bahia Principe La Romana, you will be disappointed. The soup is more brownish than blue but we knew that before, through the reviews posted in Tripadvisor - so I would not deepen this here. But we have experienced turquoise blue water on a trip to Saona Island and on the beach of the Hotel Dreams La Romana. The beach itself was good and clean. We have traveled a lot and have stayed in different hotels. There are definitely much better out there. The Dreams is also rated with 5 stars - just compare itself, there are worlds in between. We will go back to the Dominican Republic, but definitely not in this hotel again - sorry. If you do not necessarily want to have turquoise blue water, gladly to the deep night celebrates, not necessarily need a warm kitchen and love to stay all day at the pool (pool was great) then this will be the right place to you.
