Not the best Bahia.
Thu Aug 25 06:42:41 EDT 2016
Me and my partner stayed for 2 weeks in this hotel. Having stayed in the El Portillo on the other side of the island, our expectations were very high. Unfortunately there were many things that let down our stay. Firstly, the room and food were excellent, cleaned every day and a range of food selections at the buffet. Also, the staff in the restaurant and pool bar were brilliant. However, the animation team were very poor. They were more worried about flirting with women than starting the sport/activity they were meant to be running. When running the activity they were not very enthusiastic. As well as this, staff were also asking for my partners phone number etc when I was away getting a drink. The beach is very nice with loads of palm trees, makes for a great picture. However, as mentioned before the sea isn't too clear. We attended the privilege club meeting to see what offers they were doing. In this meeting many of the staff openly admitted that this was the 'ugly' hotel of the Bahia chain. If we were to book again, we would definitely have paid a little bit more for a different Bahia hotel that here. Unfortunately it didn't live up to our expectations. More>

Best Family Holiday So Far

We booked our holiday via Thomson and we feel that it was the best holiday we have had so far. We had a great time. Rooms - Very spacious and cleaned daily. Mini fridge restocked every day and included as part of our package was an upgrade to a Golden Club Room. This package meant our towels would be changed twice a day (if required), we could have room service, use of robes and slippers and also we would go to a separate reception/member of staff with any concerns etc. located in the Golden Club Lounge, which was handy as the normal reception could get busy at times. Had a issue on arrival as our room had been recently refurbished and smelt strongly of paint. On advising the Golden Club staff, they sorted out another room for us within the hour to our satisfaction. Hotel Grounds - Beautiful and always being tendered to and cleaned. Beach is lovely, the sea is not completely clear, but had no issues swimming in it. There is a medical centre within the hotel grounds which is reassuring. There are few shops also within the complex, they aren't cheap, but wasn't planning on buying much anyway. Had no issues with sunbeds at all, which was a relief. There were always sunbeds available at whatever time of the day and the area around them was very roomy, so no issue with other people trying to put a sunbed in a small space next to yours. Obviously prime spots taken early, but no earlier than 8am. Restaurants - We ate in the main buffet restaurant at night and and there was plenty of choice and had no complaints. We ate in the Beach restaurant at lunch time which was similar to the main buffet restaurant but less choice, which didn't bother us as we are not great eaters at lunch time. Waiting staff at both restaurants did not speak much English, but this made us try a bit of Spanish, which makes a change as the British seem to expect everyone to speak English. The staff work really hard and were always polite. We did not visit the speciality restaurants so we can't comment on those. Bars - It took longer than expected to get a drink. Bar staff seem to favour non-English speakers especially if they had a tip in your hand. We always leave a large tip for the bar staff at the end of the holiday and therefore do not expect to tip every time we ask for a drink. Staff were pleasant enough though when they did serve you. Entertainment - Day time entertainment was very good. Jorge and Darwin are an asset to the entertainment team and brought a great atmosphere to the pool area during the day. There were watersports on the beach (kayaks, paddleboards and a small sail boat) and the staff were also good. Night time entertainment was a bit repetitive but we tended to sit talking in the bar area so not a concern to us. We did however watch the Michael Jackson tribute show which is the best tribute show we have seen in a hotel. The dancing and music was fantastic. The evening entertainment and bar finished around 11:30pm daily, therefore if you want to carry on drinking you need to go across to the disco, which we did not do as we are too old for that and ready for bed by then. Wi-Fi - An hour's wi-fi a day is free within the Reception area and if you have a Golden Club room you can also use the computers in the exclusive lounge area for as long as you like (unless somebody else is waiting to use it). However, we paid extra so that we could receive wi-fi access everywhere, it is very expensive but reliable everywhere. Excursions - We booked 3 trips via Thomson (although you would also book trips via the hotel's own trip company). "Swimming with Dolphins" was amazing, pricey, but worth it. However please be aware that you have to lock everything away so if you want a memory of the day you have to purchase their photos/video and it is very very expensive. "Caribbean Cruise" was great. It included boat to natural swimming pool where we spent a short while and you could pick up the starfish, speed boat to Saona island where we had lunch (food wasn't great) and then Catamaran (with music, dancing and drinks) back to where we started. "Zip Lining" was fantastic and safety was paramount, but the journey to and from it was a pain. It took a lot longer than expected due to a tour of areas we weren't personally interested in. All in all, we had a fantastic holiday and would definitely return. More>

Excellent entertainment

Stayed at the Grand Bahia Principle Bourganville La Romana from 5/8/16 to 19/8/16, let me start by saying the staff are tremendous, very friendly and all willing to help, they don't speak much english which is a hard to comunicate with some of them but they do try. The room was fantastic right by the pool very spacious and cleaned every day top standard, the cleaners work very hard as do all of the staff they are an assett to the hotel the management should be proud of there hard work, now to the bits I think can be improved. The entertainment is terrible the same person every night singing the same songs in spanish I personally felt that they cater more for the spanish they really need to change there evening programs, the beach is ok but hubby got stung by jelly fish mirky water don't help but a nice place to sit, the buffet was ok but no WOW factor the same dishes most days and not very hot the staff work hard in the buffet, went to Catalina island, not impressed very small and too many people on the beach felt like was in a sardine can, sitting in lobby one night and at 23.00 the lights went out and bar closed, surely for a 5 star they should keep it open even tie midnight, overall was good holiday, but would I go back maybe one day, I was told that the trainees do not get paid which I feel is totally wrong, they work for about 3 months without pay, they work really hard and long hours so we tipped the trainees more than the staff, as felt sooo sorry for them, not many shops on site the ones that are there are very expensive, went over the family side a few times, but was like a cattle market and if they saw our bands we had one from our side getting served was a major issue so we left, you will have a good holiday, but we have stayed in better its a shame as the hotel is beautiful.
