Having traveled to other Bahia Principe locations our expectations were high. We had family who had never been to an all inclusive resort traveling with us. The first impression was terrible and I was embarrassed that I had brought someone here. Staff members at the front desk were rude and did not want to be bothered. I asked a question at the lobby bar and the bartender yelled in my face "WHAT" in an aggressive manner. We were put in a room that the air conditioning did not work. After reporting it to the front desk and giving them numerous chances to fix the problem and accepting their word that the problem had been fixed we stayed in three different rooms in a weeks time. When trying to make dinner reservations which you have to wait until the day after you arrive to do availability was limited. We were unable to go to a specialty restaurant for my daughter's birthday. After speaking with the Amstar Representative Fanny she worked to resolve the issues. My daughter's room was very nicely decorated with a banner and balloons on the door and balloons inside the room for her birthday. We were able to sit at a specially decorated table at the buffet for dinner on her birthday. We received champagne and a delicious cake not to mention several staff singing Happy Birthday! It was great! We enjoyed the pool and all the activities put on by the Animation Team. Our favorite team member was Antonio. Antonio goes out of his way to include the guests in activities and makes everyone have an enjoyable time. There are many activities throughout the day and into the night. Antonio always had a smile on his face, has lots of energy, is very personable at makes you feel right at home! You can tell he truly enjoys his job! All in all we made the best of it. We take one vacation a year so even though things did not start off as expected it all worked out towards the end of the week. If you are making dinner reservations do not skip the Italian restaurant. Delicious does not begin to describe it. We thought it was the best meal of the week. The buffet gets old but I must say the staff works very hard to put out fresh tasty selections. Most staff in the dining room were helpful but there were days it was difficult to get a cup of coffee refilled or water. We would have this issue usually during breakfast hours. Dinner waiters seemed more tuned in the needs. Alcohol is included but the choices are slim and definitely not top shelf. The bars daily ran out of cranberry juice. I must say I was shocked to find that staff was not friendly, did not try to engage in conversation or were not attentive to your needs. This was totally the opposite of our experience at the Bahia Principe in Riviera Maya. As stated above the Animation Team was the exception. All members of the team were a lot of fun. We had a great time with all of them especially Antonio!
Stayed July 22-29th for our anniversary and w/friends

We just returned from a week at this hotel and overall we were really impressed! The customer service was great - especially Erasmo Felix Lopez who faciliated an upgrade for us before we even arrived. We were traveling as a couple but were meeting some friends with kids. Our upgraded room was on the adult only side of the resort however we still had access to the other side of the resort so had the best of both worlds. The room was clean and spacious, the pool was beautiful although did get a little dirty during the day from all the cups, the food was pretty good (better than I expected lots of variety although very similiar offerings day after day). After reading reviews, the ocean was exactly what I expected it to be - it was murky, but as I was prepared for this it didn't really phase me. If you only speak English, as we do, there is a significant language barrier with much of the staff which was challenging at times but we managed to figure it out with lots of hand gestures and drawings. Overall I would highly recommend this resort to any couples or families looking to enjoy some time in paradise! Everybody on the resort is always smiling and friendly - makes you feel very welcome!
Great time in Grand Bahia Principe La Romana thanks to lovely staff

Though the family part of the hotel is rather 4 star than 5 (the VIP part for adults only is truly 5 star), we had a great time in the Grand Bahia Principe La Romana which offered good value for money all things considered (this is of course very personal and depends on what you are used to and expect). The rooms are all being renovated as we speak so probably it will be more like a 5-star soon. We would especially like to thank Alexandra Valenzuela of the Las Olas restaurant at the beach and Hostesses Marlenis and Hilda of the buffet restaurant and waiters Carlos and Pedro at the buffet restaurant. Also the guys at the pool bar deserve a big thanks for always being helpful and good humoured.

I was looking forward to a relaxing vacation with my daughter, upon arrival I didn't like the decor. The staff is not welcoming, it took almost 3 hours to get a room that I had reserved more than a month ago! Got to the room and it's the typical flowered room, nothing impressive about it. I had the worse experience, room #1 smelled like feces! We called the front desk and were moved to another room. Room #2 had a leak which I happened to discovered while I decided to use the bathroom before going to be. Called front desk again to only be bashed by the so called "manager" Carlos, he blatantly told me that he had just gotten to the hotel (11:00 PM) so my issue had to wait until the morning. I was livid to say the least, he said he was going to try to move us to another room, that took another hour. Past 1:00 AM we were moved to room #3, which at this point I was beyond upset and could care less about it, finally hit the sack to only discover that the AC didn't work!!!!!! Called front desk AGAIN, it is now past 2:00 AM, at 2:30 AM they decided to send someone to inspect the room! I did not want the service, I was exhausted! The next morning went to the front desk to speak to the General Manager, Mario. We were told he was in a meeting, to wait nearby, that he was aware of the problem and will meet us shortly. Long story short, we were waiting until almost noon. My niece had it and decided to bang on the door where the meeting was being held and that's when he took 15-20 of his precious time to address us! We explained the problem, he did try to make things better by offering free massages for us, and a free ride for my daughter on the motor bicycle. He also offer to move us for the 4th time to a front view room, thanks but a little too late! I will NEVER visit this hotel or any of their chains again. The customer service experience SUCKS! I paid my hard earned money to be treated as if I was staying there for free! The food is bland, my daughter ate bread and butter for almost the entire time of our stay. The beach is not the greatest, the drinks are watered down, save yourself a headache and stay AWAY!!!!!!!!

A great holiday, one of the best holidays i have been one!The hotel is lovely clean and tidy you get a king size bed and a sofa bed and a mini fridge tv and table and chairs.The maid comes and cleans the room everyday and fills the fridge back up with cans of beer,coke,orange, 7 up and water.
Great entertainment around the pool and beach in the day from the amazing animation team, a special mention to Antonio and Nicolas they were brilliant and good to have a laugh with.Everyday they have different actives to do at the pool and the beach like darts and to see who can do the biggest splash and lots more.In the evening every night at 9:30 they have a show, the best show what we went to was the Michael Jackson show.The dancing was fantastic definitely one to watch. Plenty of choice at the restaurants from breakfast to dinner. At night you can choose to book 3 other restuarants if you want a change.
On the whole a great holiday and the hotel and the pool is spotless.Definitely visit the catalina island this holiday is for famlies or anyone the staff was really friendly and nice a great expricence and a fab holiday so denifatly go if your unsure about it!
