Great resort, BUT...
RKatherineT, Calgary, Canada

The Grand Bahia Principe La Romana is a beautiful resort from the landscape to the architecture. The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the entertainment is great. There is lots to do on the resort including sports, gambling, beach and pool time, etc. The food is also great with four a la carte restaurants and two buffets. However, on the second day of our trip, my partner jumped from the dock into the water and severely cut his foot and knee open. We were taken to a hospital in Santo Domingo, about an hour ride, where he received 18 stitches. We believe he cut himself on a piece of coral. An hour later, another young man cut his knee while swimming in the same area and also received 16 stitches. The staff insist this is the first time these type of injuries have happened; however, other guests shared contradictory stories about multiple people injuring themselves in this area. The resort has failed to post any signage warning people not to jump off the dock, and there are no signs anywhere on the beach that indicate sharp coral in the main swimming boundaries. With murky water, this is a sure thing to be careful of at this resort any MAKE SURE you wear swimming shoes and be careful. Additionally, the in-room safe is an extra $28 USD for a week to use, so be prepared to pay. Be careful of petty theft, as multiple items such as a hat, pair of sunglasses and an iPod went missing on our trip. Other than the dangers of the beach area and the above notes, the resort itself deserves a good rating. More>

Was just "ok" at best. :-(

Having previously stayed at the Bahia Principe Runaway Bay, El Portillo and Sian Ka’an, I feel that I can make an honest assessment of the Bahia Principe La Romana. Our stay was from April 22 – 29. We flew with Westjet into La Romana airport which is about 25 minutes from the resort. Prior to arriving, I emailed the general manager Mr. Lopez with a few requests. Mr. Lopez stayed true to his word with his promises to make our stay a comfortable one granting us a beautiful second level room in section 3700 which faced the beach area of the adult side, the Bouganville. Our room was very clean and our request for two bottles of water every day was delivered by our maid. (It is recommended that you do not drink the tap water at this resort, as it is not purified. We brushed our teeth using bottled water). The bars and restaurants serve purified water and we experienced no issues. The air conditioning in our room worked fine although it was rather on the chilly side and adjusting the temperature did not help. The English-speaking television channels were limited but we did manage to find movie channels in English, which we watched later in the evening before dozing off to sleep. At the risk of sounding “uppity”, which we are far from, this is the first Bahia property where we had to pour our own coffee in the morning at the buffet. The servers were very slow in approaching the table unless, of course, there was a manager in the area. The buffet offered a great selection of fresh foods, which were nicely displayed at each meal – breakfast, lunch and dinner. I have to admit, I was not impressed with the disgruntled and rather rude attitude toward guests which was displayed by the gentleman making the omelets at breakfast. We ate at three a la cartes – the Italian, The French and the Japanese and all were excellent – service and food. The pool is a very busy place where you really shouldn’t go to relax. The bartenders work hard but if you are in a hurry for a drink, be patient. Half the time, they get your drink order incorrect. Getting back to the pool, I totally understand that the animation team has a job to do but by the third day when you hear that Bahia theme song and the animation leader screaming in the microphone, well,…………..forget having a nice quiet day by the pool. If it’s quiet you want, my suggestion is to head to the beach where the palm trees sway in the wind and the sand is very clean of debris and seaweed. The water is not great which is a real shame but it’s good for a nice walk. A lovely invitation was slipped under our door by day two. It stated that we “won a lovely gift which could be claimed in the lobby”. Time-share ploy. We chose not to “claim our prize”. Through our Sunquest rep, we paid 59.00 US each to do a "45-minute bus ride" to Santa Domingo. We were explained that a coach bus was picking us up at 8:30 am and a tour guide would show us the sights of Santa Domingo with lunch included. We would return to the resort at 5:30pm. The drive was actually 1 hour and 15 minutes with stop and go traffic once we hit the city. If you get motion sickness, take a gravol! Buses are not allowed in the city so it was parked and we walked from there. Our tour guide Calvin was very knowledgeable however, he spoke German and Spanish 95% of the time! I do understand Spanish so I could get by, however, there were a number of English speaking people on the tour who were ignored. Once in the city, vendors swarmed in with man made wares such as rosary beads, DVD’s, CD’s, palm hats, etc. Very aggressive. Our 45 minutes of shopping was a nightmare of vendors begging you to enter their shops. Santa Domingo is a very dirty city with garbage strewn all over the streets and on every street corner. We were also told that there are many “shady” neighborhoods which foreigners are not safe. I would not recommend the trip to Santa Domingo unless you get a one on one tour in your own language. In closing, I would say that although the grounds of the Bahia Principe La Romana are breathtakingly pristine, a “wow factor” was lacking otherwise. For this reason, I personally would not return to this resort. More>

Attention La Diva and Anyelina with the animation crew

First let me say that I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Bahia. The food was good. Accommodations were great. What really stood out was the attentiveness and friendliness of the animation crew. Two fo your staff who stick out are Anyelina and La Diva. They made sure to get us involved in activities and were very nice and friendly to myself and my family. My 11 year old son wants to go back next year so he can see his girlfriends. Great job all together More>

Great resort

We just returned from 7 days of paradise! The rooms are clean, grounds meticulously kept and staff very friendly if you are polite (the staff do attempt to speak English) and there's a little something for everyone at the pool or at night with shows, karaoke, dancing or just people watching. Yes there are sales ppl, but if you politely say no they will leave you alone. The great part is that there are no trinket sellers on the beach, they hold a flea market night once a week in the main lobby. The beach is beautiful and has a shoreline that's around a mile long and is great for walking. The swimming area is good... And yes the water is a bit murky (river outlet close by) and would not recommend if you want the clear blue water, but swimming was great and the staff are in the water picking up coral throughout the day. We did not experience any jellyfish as other ppl wrote about. The wifi is reasonable and available in the lobby for 1 hour a day, which forces you to disconnect and relax! The food was good, the buffets have lots of selection and the a la carts were good but only ate at the Asian and Italian restaurants. We did not do any off resort activities so can not comment. Overall the resort is great for couples or families and would highly recommend it. More>
