Another Bahia resort

Thank you to everyone at the Bahia Príncipe for another fantastic vacation. A big thank you to mr. Lopez for the beautiful room, 2708, the view was fantastic! Jahana, you make the best cocoa frappes and always with a smile. I will miss you most. The only thing stopping me from rating it a five was the beach, just not that clear carribean water you like, but still enjoyed it. It is a smaller resort so not a big buffet but still good. Thank you all for a great week More>

Very Good place for Vacation

Just got back from 1 week trip, everything about this resort is good. From service to entertainment, very friendly. Buffet had decent food, a la carte restaurants were good. Beach is nice, always calm, perfect sun set view. Only thing they turn off the lights in the lobby around 11pm, which is a bit early if you are on vacation. Other then that, great resort. More>

My wife and I went there for our yearly trip,the the gardens and beach are well maintained our room location was very nice but the rooms look old ,the beds are rock hard and it took five days before they found a mattress pad after daily complaints.there was a broken door stop on the floor with screws sticking up and my wife cut her foot I remove most of it then in formed them about it and they did not fix it!The satellite went out a couple of times for the whole day.The food at the buffet was usually cold and service poor,Japanese restaurant was very good! Most of the time we had to ask for alcohol in our drinks ,"if they got our order right!"and unfortunately we had to cut our holiday short due to a death in the family and they wouldn't even help us find a flight home or help us get to the airport but told us we could take a cab for $130.00 ,so this is what you get with the royal golden package!😠 More>

Another great week at this resort!

Just got home from 7 nights (Feb. 1, 2016-Feb. 8, 2016) at this resort. This was our second time here, we stayed for a week in 2009. We came back because we had such a great time before, and were not disappointed this time. We requested a room on the ground floor because my wife has hip issues and stairs are difficult, and that was easily accommodated. The room was clean and beautiful. Everything worked fine, and our maid did a great job of our room each day. The grounds are amazing. Workers are always maintaining and repairing. It's seems to be a well-oiled machine. The staff are always pleasant, and some even remember your name and your likes and are so pleased to accommodate you. What we liked about this resort: 1. The palm grove on the beach. Gorgeous! 2. The swim-up bar. Special mention to Richard C. 3. The night life. There's always so much going on, and most people seem to be having a good time. Other resorts we've been to lack this, and it's a bit of a downer. 4. The courtyard across the street and the Burger Principe that's open with snacks and cervezas until 7a.m. :) 5. The lobby bar, and especially bartenders, Jesus, Juan, Dewar and Cristina. They are so much fun, and really seem to love their jobs. Great job guys! Things we didn't like about this resort. (None of these were a deal breaker) 1. The murky water at the beach. A lot of reviewers complain about this. I guess it would be nice to have crystal clear water, but it's not such a big deal in the grand scheme of things. I suspect the rates at this resort would be much higher if the water was clearer. At least the water is clean, and the beach never has debris (seaweed etc.) left on it very long. 2. The guys trying to sell you a time-share. Yeah, you can call it a vacation property or whatever other fancy name you're calling it this year, but when it all boils down to it, it's still just a time-share. Really, I don't have an issue with the display there right by the buffet where everyone can see it when they go for meals, but let the guests come to you if they're interested in a purchase. I didn't appreciate having to explain everyday that we already own a vacation property and are not interested or can afford a second one. 3. The towel game. I know this is not unique, and most resorts have a policy that you cannot reserve loungers or palapas by leaving towels and/or other personal affects on them so you can have a prime spot on the beach or at the pool when you come back from your excursion in the afternoon. I know it's done everywhere, I just wish someone would enforce the rule. 4. The half shower door. what's the deal with that? It's so difficult to have a shower without getting the whole room wet, and water all over the floor so you can slip, and break your skull. I don't get it. That's about it. Great time, great resort. It's not perfect, but damn close. Remember, you get what you pay for. More>

As Promised, my in-depth review

CHECK IN: My hubby and I flew into Punta Cana on Jan 25 for a 10 day stay. Our shuttle took us to the hotel in about an hour and 15min. Unremarkable drive as its all highway. We arrived to a welcome drink and cool cloth and a very friendly and efficient check in as part of the Golden Club upgrade. They took a few moments to explain a few need-to-knows and then a bellboy loaded our luggage into a trolley and drove us to our room. 2 weeks prior to arrival I had emailed the manager with a room request and explaining we were celebrating 20yrs of marriage. ROOMS: We were in room 2612 and had a lovely beach view (great for evening sunsets!) We had a Happy Anniversary banner on our door along with champagne and a fruit basket. We thought the special acknowledgement was lovely. The room was very clean, well appointed and contained everything we needed and more. (Umbrella/robes/slippers/iron/coffee maker etc) We had an issue on day 2 when I discovered my hairdryer wasn't working. I called concierge, a staff member arrived to fix it within 10 minutes. Unable to fix it, he replaced it with a new one immediately. We aware that anything you place on the bathroom vanity, shower side, will get wet. Do not store your make up or medications there. The shower only has one glass door so it tends to spray outside the shower. The beds are very, very firm/hard. If you enjoy a softer mattress ask for a pillow topper, they will accommodate you if one is available. Everything in our room was in working order although the cable tv was sometimes sketchy. SERVICE: Everywhere we went, the staff seemed to want to do everything they could to make your stay enjoyable. Many of the staff (maids, gardeners, beach cleaners) spoke very little English and we found this part of the charm of being in the Dominican! We found that they were eager to try and teach us Spanish words and we loved the game of charades and our rudimentary Spanish to try and communicate with staff who didn't know English. Most front line staff (animation, servers, management) spoke very good English. (Although I confess, I'd rather attempt a conversation with Spanish speaking staff! Way more fun!) I would implore guests to remember that staff are human beings, doing a job and trying to do it very well. They are not servants.....we witnessed a number of guests with out of line expectations and attitudes treating resort workers as if they were their personal servants who were falling short. Quite shameful that any guest would behave in such an embarrassing way. A smile, a gracias, and a warm friendly attitude will ensure fantastic service. BEACH: As reported by other reviewers, it is not the aquamarine blue beach water one may expect. It is quite murky, but it is clean (thank you beach cleaners who drag nets all day long) The beach itself is very clean, nice for walking and there are plenty of lounges. If you want a front row beach view lounge under an umbrella, you will need to get up early (7am) and play the towel game. We neither experienced nor witnessed any jelly fish or sand fleas. And we spent ALOT of time on the beach. To the far right, down the beach are some vendors. They are not part of the resort. Be warned, they can be quite insistent but if you enjoy bartering, have at it. Tip: they really like hotel shampoos/soaps/lotions. FOOD: We ate at all the a la carts, enjoying the Japanese one twice. The ambiance and food at Takara is spot on! The French is the only true a la carte, having full table service and no buffet appetizers. My veal was melt in your mouth delicious! Italian was also fantastic! Ravioli and beef tenderloin, hubby and I shared bites and we were pleased with both dishes. The Seafood was good although my beef was cold and had to be reheated. The main buffet had a few theme nights, although many of the dishes were repeated day and night with no variations. However, it was a huge buffet and there is plenty of choice. During lunch, one can eat at las olas beach buffet. Be sure to try the daily paella! Delicious! We indulged in everything, we tried it all. We were never sick and never experienced so much as basic indigestion (although we should have as we often over indulged!) We have no food complaints other than buffet food becomes boring after about 5 days.....but the resort does a good job of trying to keep a good selection available for all tastes. OVERALL RESORT IMPRESSIONS: We really enjoyed our 10 day stay. Everywhere we looked, somebody was cleaning, tending to the beautiful gardens or looking after a guest. The Circus show was great!! Don't miss it. The other nightly entertainment was run of the mill typical resort stuff. The animation staff deserve a big mention for their unrelenting level of energy. Most of the food service staff work in many different places....we noticed one working breakfast and lunch buffet and also working at an a la carte in the evening. Yoga on the pier at 10am with LaDiva was lovely! The pool is beautiful although we only swam in it once. It seems the pool area is for the really lively vacationers and the beach is for those wanting relaxation. We fall into the later category. We had a wonderful vacation, and would definitely recommend Grand Bahia La Romana. More>
