Rooms are dated and could use some maitenane, but clean. food is average. Coud not make a cocktail. You never knew what you were getting! Grounds were nice. I did not see a bug there, but somehow I got quite a few bug bites. Wi-Fi in lobby is not very good. It was down a lot. The VIP island excursion to Somai(?) was not as described to us.

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.

Wow, what a beautiful place !!!

This place was very beautiful upon arriving !!! The grounds are very well taken care of. The food is very good, most of the employees are very friendly. I have to say the best bartender was "Jesus" at the lobby-bar, awesome Margarita and Tom Collins !!Charimel was very helpful and sweet at reception and Yohanna was the best bartender at the pool-bar !! The other bartender at the pool should watch and learn from him instead of ignoring me and trying to pick-up the ladies !! The circus and Micheal Jackson show were amazing !! I would definitely return to this resort. My wife really liked the maid that took care of us, she was amazing !!( Room 1516)

Another awesome family hotel

We choosed this hotel on 2017 as a family trip on a total of arround 60 people, the food was amazing, the drinks and show was enjoyable too, we had a great experience here would definitely recommend for staying, would've been 5 star review if it didn't have 2 medium flaws, the first one is the small cockroaches on the room (the room i have no complain about it it was just great), and second, the service, its really medium to low at least at the season we visites, overall this was just a great experience with small details.

Good but needs some improvements

Rooms were nice, clean, stocked every day and updated although beds are quite stiff. Pool is large, lots of loungers on beach, we were a party of 8 and had no problem getting lounges together. Nice lobby and decor. Large selection of food in buffet hall although most of the meat is tough and overcooked other than the chicken. The things bringing down my rating are after the pool bars close there is only the main bar in the lobby and it closes at 11 and could take awhile for a drink. After 11 if you want a drink you have to go to the disco and there is no liquor dispensers in the room. Also entertainment is poor. They do not have shows every night and when they do they aren't very long and theres not much to the show. The only music is a man on keyboard with a spanish singer with background music on his machine. The ala carte restaurants are decent but food is generally not terribly hot and small portions are served. The Mediterranean rest is not really Mediterranean, more seafood than anything. One of our reservations was bumped for a private function on the day of, but wouldn't they know of a function before that? ANd they said they couldn't accommodate all 8 of us anywhere else.

Never go here - end of

This review will resemble a lot of the negative comments on here already, so I’ll keep it succinct: Service - worst we have ever experienced. If you are anything but fluent in spanish or a young pretty female, you are just ignored. One example was asking 3 different people for a tea bag (you know, a basic staple of any hotel) and it not appearing, but they were happy to pour champagne for the table behind. Another was completely ignoring myself and my wife at the bar EVERY single night. Shops on site - Avoid. It took me 2 days and shouting at the hotel manager to get a faulty product changed because it had been purchased longer than 3 days. Tui/Thomson excursions - Poor. Over hyped and the fact that you can buy the exact same trip for a third less from the hotel sums them up. Hotel quality - 4star? More like a low 3. Room was cleaned once in 11 days. Bed was made each day with new towels and that was it. Shower was a trickle, one sink didn’t work. As for the thought of where they put people, we were placed in a room that had a locked adjoining door, in between families with young babies (credit to the parents as we didn’t get woken too often but surely this situation can be sorted?) Food - Now I come to the reason I will never set foot in this hotel again. After the 3rd day, my wife had food poisoning. We arrived home today after our 11th day and my wife is still ill. I myself had 2 bouts of food poisoning, though thankfully I recover quite quickly. The food is not kept properly, the heaters are either too high or too low, things are clearly reheated, but not properly and, judging by EVERY other couple we spoke to, this is why so many people are getting sick at this hotel. The absolute low point for me was biting into a piece of fried chicken to be greeted with pink meat and a mouthful of blood. Having been hospitalised in the past with campylobacter, I understand the importance of this. Raw chicken can kill you, simple. When I took the chicken back to the chef, all he asked was would I like some more. This was reported to the hotel manager, however judging by the fact nothing appears to have changed in this hotel from the reviews over the last year or more, I’m not convinced they will stop serving sub standard food and risking people’s health. Overall this hotel is a disgrace to itself and more so to TUI/Thomson with whom we will be filing a full complaint. We will never return to the Dominican Republic as it would appear the attitude and service of most people there is reflective of what is received at this hotel (we spoke to other people from other hotels who had similar experiences) and quite frankly we refuse to put money into an economy that doesn’t deserve to benefit from tourism. I could write a book on the issue with this hotel, however I will simply leave the review at the above and advise you to consider before you waste what is a lot of money for a miserable experience. Our holiday was ruined and this experience is the worst we have ever had.

Been travelling for a long time and been at many resorts, this one is the most amazing and beautiful resort I ever been at. The grounds are so green, clean, and beautiful flowers , trees...etc.. Beautiful beach, food is great, and amazing people. 1 hour and fifteen minutes from the Punta Cana Airport, and 55 minutes to Santo Domingo City. A must visit. Entertainment is great, Lots of shops for gifts, Will certainly return to this resort in near future,
