Turquoise Water! NOT!

The hotel experience was very good...but if you are looking for turquoise/blue clear water THIS IS NOT THE PLACE! The water in the ocean is the main reason I go to Dominican Republic; Been on the island at four different resorts; I would never go back to this resort because of the ocean water; otherwise nice resort.

The bars were crap waiting 20 to 25 min for a drink. Also food was not good, meat was under cooked. This facility does not have an handycap rooms. They also only have one wheelchair on site. When we booked this vacation we were given wrong information, told it was handycap friendly. We had to rent our own wheelchair. Food quality stunk. Will never go back to this facility.

The hotel was great. Food was very good and staff were excellent. The water was not the brilliant Caribbean blue but we knew that before we booked. The only complaint we had was with theApple rep at the hotel rarely being available.

We thought the resort was excellent, did not like the location of our room, it was in the middle of all the activities, it was facing the pool . No privacy, when we arrived at the airport we had a problem getting to the resort, nobody knew about the transfer and the resort had to be called, that took a while to confirm. A lot of the taxi drivers didn't want to go to laromana, we were in puta Cana . But overall it was a nice trip !

THAS OUR SECOND TIME IN PUNTA CANA WITH APPLE VACATIONS, LAST YEAR WE WENT TO IBEROSTAR IN BAVARO, AND THAT WAS AWESOME, THIS YEAR BAHIA PRINCIPE WAS JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH. FIRSTLY THE STAFF DID NOT SPECAK ENGLISH, AND WE HAD A HARD TIME FINDING SOMEONE TO SPEAK ENGLISH AT THE HOTEL, RESTURANTS ,ETC. THE ROOMS WERE NICE AND CLEAN AND VIEW AS GREAT ,BUT NO HOT WATER ANY TIME DURING THE DAY, AND WE KEPT CALLING FOR EXTRA TOWELS , THE FOOD AT THE BUFFET WAS JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH AND THE QUALITY WAS NOT THERE, AND THE THE SPECIALTY RESTURANTS WERE GREAT, BUT THE BUFFET, WE DID NOT WANT TO EAT THERE. THE RESORT TOO FAR FROM ANY OTHER RESORT OR TOWN AND NO TRANSPORTATION (UNLESS YOU PAID AN ARM AND LEG) TO GET OUT OF THE RESORT. WE SIMPLY EXPECTED APPLE TO DO A BIT MORE RESEARCH BEFORE SENDING THEIR CUSTOMERS TO THIS RESORT. WE THOUGHT JUST LIKE LAST YEAR, THIS WOULD BE GREAT, BUT WERE SURPRISED THAT IT WAS NOT. WILL NOT RECOMMEND THIS RESORT TO ANYONE.

My mother and I paid for an an enclusive getaway for 7 nights. We had glass break on the sliding glass doors in our room, the hotel management switched rooms for us and packed our luggage. They put dirty and wet clothes with clean clothes and our bathing utensils all together in our bags. Shampoo leaked all over our clothes, some cash came up missing, some of my mothers gold, and a bottle of her prescription medicine came up missing. Once we switched rooms they began to accuse us of breaking a bed. The bed was not broken. On our second day we came back to our room and we were told by the management/security that we must leave the resort within the our or be taken to jail. Also we had to pay $600 US cash for the bed or go to jail. Once we paid they threw our luggage into a cab and sent us off the resort with a Spanish speaking taxi driver we couldn't communicate with. The whole time our Apple representative was no where to be found. We ended up getting dropped off in a random city and had to figure out how to survive for the next 5 days until our flight home. The resort took almost all of our money. We were forced to stay in a very bad hotel in a very bad part of the Dominican Republic. We had to borrow over $1000 from friends and family to survive the rest of the trip. It was a terrible and frightening experience. I would not recommend Grand Bahia Princepe La Romana or Apple Vacations to anyone. We were very scared for our well-being.

While the hotel and staff were friendly, the food was underwhelming. Additionally, the hotel allows for there to be many people on the property that are constantly going to try to sale you things throughout your vacation. Be prepared to have to deal with that throughout your entire vacation. Overall, the hotel was well taken care of and housekeeping and the front desk were wonderful. The bars are great as well.

My Name is Yawin Smallwood me and my girlfriend just recently got back from Grand Bahia principe la Ramana for 7 Days. I'm writing this email to let apple vacations know we were 100 percent displeased with the past 7 days we were there numerous issues made our stay uncomfortable and life threatening. For one the Ac in our room didn't work as you know DR is a very hot area and was un bare able to be stay in the room we tried to get this issue resolveved and it never was causing us to not get any such sleep possible. Secondly the food gave not only me but my girlfriend food poison causing our stomachs to feel uncomfortable and in much pain for days and even still now that we are back still in pain. For four days straight we vomited and had outrageous dyherria problems that made the trip by far the worse part not being able to eat much food because you are scared it will cause continuing vomit or stomach pain was the last straw although the hotel did try to make the trip better with hydrates such as Gatorades it was not enough as the experience cause my girlfriend intense stomach cramps and pain and vomiting through out 4/7 days we were there. Lastly our flight was delayed and we were denied the right to stay on the resort until the later flight change time so we had to stay in the airport for 8 hours earlier than expected as our flight was delayed 6 hours and we and other family members throught that was totally unprofessional and a terrible experience.

The hotel room was not clean and the plumbing and air conditioning were malfunctioning throughout the stay. The hotel pool was dirty and there was an awful odor that remained for the length of our stay. The Apple rep on location was not available during the posted hours and did not make himself available to answer questions about departure details. I would highly advise anyone inquiring about this resort to stay clear. I really enjoyed my trip to Punta Cana in March of 2016 through Apple Vacations, but this experience really impacted my thoughts about taking future trips through Apple because this location did not come anywhere close to meeting expectations.

Weekend issues
2Gooners,
Sun Nov 12 08:46:43 EST 2017
High influx of people every weekend .Staff are under pressure and under trained to cope with the demand. Hotel management are not bothered and are not informing Thomson of the true level of these problems. Save your money.

Enjoyable Relaxing holiday.

We have been travelling to the Dominican Republic for a number of years, usually the other coast. Our first time in a Grand Bahia Principe resort. Good check in, but a little disappointed that only one dance to greet us and no 'Welcome' drink. Bellboy service to our room was excellent. The room was cleaned and water, cold drinks and coffee/tea replaced daily. The lady who cleaned our room 2505, was very friendly and gave us excellent service. We received excellent service on our first morning buffet breakfast by a lovely waiter, who we later found out was his last day. After that the service in the buffet restaurant went from bad to worse, especially at weekends when the local guests arrived. It really spoilt our holiday. We had to keep asking for drinks, no juice brought to the table, plates not cleared away in a timely manner. It was so bad one morning, feeling that we (international guests) were not valued (felt invisible) that I got really upset and tearful, and went to see our Tui Rep. I can say that after a couple of days service improved slightly, but we chose not to eat any meals apart from breakfast in the restaurant. I must congratulate Miriams (who served us in the snack bar), who was so polite, friendly and professional, nothing being any trouble to her. The team serving in the pool bar were excellent, and coped so well with the number of guests they served daily, always with a smile. On weekends, they work above and beyond the normal, due to the local guests who didn't leave the swim up bar. We did not like all the children using the jaccuzzi pool as a childrens pool and hogging it all weekend, nor the fact that all the sun loungers around the pool and on the beach, and the pool cabanas were reserved early in the mornings (although signs were visible stating not to be reserved). The pool area has BBQs regularly for lunch, but don't try to get any food at weekends, as the Local guests tend to hog the BBQ and eat their food in the pool !!!!! Weekends are very noisy, and crowded, and personally spoilt my relaxing holiday. We were kept awake both weekends by loud shouting and laughing until the early hours. The Entertainment Team were really good, I enjoyed the water Aerobics, especially Raphael Ashanti sessions, and 'Wander' who spoke to us every time he saw us. The speciality restaurants are excellent and have a dress code, which people don't stick to (lots of men in shorts !!!). Most hotels I have stayed in have offered the free use of an in room safe, we had to pay $54 dollars for this facility. Our rating would be 5 out of 5, if a few things were to improve.

Beautiful resort!

My wife and I stayed at the Grand Bahia Principe La Romana for a week in late October. It is a very beautiful, clean resort with great amenities. Full Disclosure: We are members of the Bahia Principe Privilege Club, so we are already fans of Grand Bahia resorts... The rooms are big and clean (we had an ocean-view room near the beach). The shower is a bit small for me (I'm 6'4"), but it worked out OK. Tthe beach is nice - lots of cabanas for all who wanted them. It's true that the water is not crystal clear, but we didn't have any issues with jellyfish, etc. It was great to jump in the water to cool down. We ate at all of the A La Carte restaurants through the week (including those at the Bouganville side of the resort), and had great meals and experiences except for the Los Corales Rodizio Brazilian Steakhouse...terrible service that night for us. We also ate at the buffets for lunch and found plenty of variety. Everything was fresh. You won't starve, that's for sure. There are several staff members that deserve special recognition for their warm hospitality and help during the week: Ambar and Elizabeth in the Privilege Club Lounge were great - setting up our dinner reservations and making sure check-in was a breeze. The best bartender at the resort is Hector at the Hibiscus Beach Bar. We chose a cabana near his bar all week, and he kept us entertained with his singing and great attitude, while fulfilling all of our drink needs. And finally, Kendy at the Bouganville beach restaurant. We ate there almost every day for lunch, and her service was fantastic. We gave it 5 stars because we'll probably go back some day!

Nice hotel

I visited this hotel with my family at the end of last year, sorry it took me so long to review. We had a great time there, everyone was very friendly and after the first day everyone knew us from the bartenders, to the waiters, reception, etc. If you have been to a lot of hotels in the Dominican Republic you will notice that this hotel is a lot smaller than the average hotels in other areas of the DR, but I think the distance and price make up for that. Unfortunately we only could go to one of the A la carte restaurants because they were fully booked, so we mostly went to the buffet and sometimes during lunch to the restaurant by the beach. But honestly our vacation did not start so good, we had booked three rooms closed to each other and when we got there my sister was put very far away from us, so we complained and they gave me an excuse which I still have not been able to figure out, but we decided not to sweat it and enjoy our stay, so the next day the manager called and moved my sister close to us. Other than that, we had a lot of fun. It rained a lot while we were there, but we didn't care, we stayed at the pool all the time. But I do have to say, bring some good repellent, i got killed by the mosquitoes, i had over 100 bites on my legs and you could see everyone at the pool with the gigantic welts on their legs. There's also a little shop/ town on the other side of reception where we went to buy some gifts and cigars to bring back to the US. Overall we had an awesome time, had to get tested for Zika but had a lot of fun!

Great Place, Great Service
