When you first pull up to the property, it is impressive. A grand lobby with lots of seating. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The room was large and spacious with a big bathroom and nice balcony. The grounds, pool area and beach were well-kept. I did not like the water at the beach area; it is not as nice as some other areas of the Dominican Republic. We enjoyed the lunch buffet as well as the dinner buffet and dinner at two of the specialty restaurants. They offered many activities at the pool area to paraticipate in as well as water activities at the beach area. The entertainment in the evening was very good as well. We had a package deal and it was well worth the money.

Great vacation bang for your buck

My husband and I traveled to Grand Bahia Principe La Romana May 15th to the 25th to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary. The rooms were a little run down and in need of a facelift and the buffet didn't have a vast selection, but what it lacked in some amenities it made up for in customer service. Every evening around 8pm a maid would come to our door and ask if we needed extra towels.... the towels were still warm from the dryer. The bartender on the beach beside the Bougainville side made the best and strongest drinks....we were tipsy almost every afternoon. There was never a problem finding a lounger on the beach no matter what time of day. The wait staff at the main buffet were amazing and always quick with the drinks, every time I had just a few sips left, a fresh drink would be put on the table without asking and always with a smile. The seafood restaurant was our favourite but we enjoyed each of the three a la cartes we went to. When we were booking one of the a la cartes, they didn't have the time available that we preferred, it wasn't a big deal to us, but the lady behind the desk said I will talk to the manager to see if we can get you the time you want. The next day there was an envelope under our door, advising us that we have the reservation for the time and date we wanted. Almost every staff member goes beyond the call of duty. The strap on my bathing suit was coming off and I went to reception to ask for a safety pin, they said no and gave me directions to a place on the resort, I wasn't sure what to expect or why I was being directed to another building. I found the place and it was a super nice older man that sewed and repaired the staffs uniforms. He sewed the strap on my bathing suit so well, I think it was on there better than the day I bought it. Such a nice man. My only two complaints, were one that I mentioned before, the rooms are a little tired looking and the bartenders at the pool didn't seem to keep track of who was there first. There were a few times when I was standing Waiting for a drink for several minutes and someone else that just arrived would be served first. I tried not to make a big deal of it, as I was on vacation after all, but it was frustrating as it did happen several times and only ever at the pool bar. Overall I would come back, maybe next time try the Bougainville side😀

Relaxing,beautiful holiday

We have been to Dominican a few times. Previously staying in Punta Cana, which is beautiful but did get very busy. We decided to try a different resort and it worked out very well. We were fortunate to have a room with a patio on the beach which was perfect. The people are very friendly and accommodating. This is an all inclusive resort and the food was very good. The beach and whole resort is very clean. We will go back to this resort and would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a peaceful holiday.

Perfect vacation with pro&cons

Just summary- + Very very large hotel area. + Very friendly staff + Picturesque beach (Not the sea itself) + Rooms are all in villas. Every room has balcony + Everyday there is different food and animation concept. (There is always fresh cooked pasta and meat/fish) + Perfect sunset direct from sea. +- The shops in hotel is a little expensive than town. But the taxi cost to town is around 75 $ and there is nothing to see there. So you can buy your souvenirs from inside hotel +- The location of the hotel is very far from every town. You need to book a taxi/tour to get anywhere outside the hotel. The good side of this is that nobody outside the hotel can reach here. No locals, no other tourists are visiting the beach and the hotel. + Sea Activities: Kayak and Sea Paddle free. Katamaran is free if you have licensce/course (Otherwise 35$ for course) Some negative review: -- Sea itself. Unfortunately forget the crystal clear caribbean sea. We did a mistake that we didn't read the comments here. I am sure an answer will come as blue flagged , but it doesn't change the fact. You can't see your legs in the see. My friend dropped his sunglasses and couldn't have found it. - Somehow the bars are not working at the same quality. (Hotel Bar > Pool Bar > Beach Bar) General: We had a very nice vacation here. If you are not obsessed with the crystal clear waters, this hotel is very suitable for you.

My husband and I visited from January 5th - 12th. There is nothing exceptional about this resort. It is certainly not a 5 start and the trip advisor 4 star rating is a little more than it deserves. Our vacation was fine, nothing stands out as being horrible or exceptional. Most of what I read in the reviews was very accurate so I wasn't surprised. -the beach is not very nice -hotel check in was slow and room was not ready til 4:00 -the food is just okay. Pretty much always the same and not always hot -don't expect speedy drink service at the pool or buffet. Your meal will likely be done before you receive your to serve yourself -water pressure in the room is horrible and the water does not get hot! -beds are comfortable and the room is pretty clean -age and wear is starting to show in some areas of the resort -horrible wi-fi connection -room was not cleaned until 3 pm every day -very aggressive sales pitch to buy into 'bahia vacations' it will eat up an hour of your vacation...if you have the will power to say NO save your self from wasting your time...unless of course you are interested -staff are not overly friendly and nobody goes out of their way....if I did have one major complaint, something that totally turned me off from visiting again, it would be about the lack of friendly service -as an FYI to management, you should do something about Lisette, she is a special kind of rude. If she can't be friendly maybe serving guests is not the job for her... To sum it up...Bahia Principe La Romana is far from a horrible vacation but it certainly does not deserve a 5 star rating. It is over priced and you are not getting value for your money. I give it a weak 3 star rating at best. Happy and safe travels!!
