Enjoyable Vacation

We came to the Grand Bahia for an 8 day vacation. There was lots of options for dining and a decent selection of foods to eat throughout our days there. The resort was well taken care of- the pool being the best part. Next time I would opt to spend $$ for a resort with a beach that has clearer water- and maybe stay on the adult side of the resort. We enjoyed the nightly shows, the swim up bar and the frozen drinks! I would also suggest doing the day trip to Saona Island! That was our favorite part of the trip and it was offered through this resort.

The most relaxing holiday!

Just came back after spending two weeks at grand Bahia and had the best time! Hotel was immaculately clean throughout- rooms spacious, beds huge and comfortable. All fascilities in working order, plus complementary umbrella Food was always fresh with huge selection renewed every day - therefore was puzzled by some previous comments about repetitive menu. At the end of two weeks we still did not manage to try everything The staff at the hotel work so hard from early morning until well after midnight to keep the guests happy and entertained We all had a great time learning Zumba, merengue, bachata and salsa, plus played many fantastic games on the beach and did aqua aerobics on a daily basis to shed off the calories we were consuming. The animations team was the most amazing and dedicated- especially Dimas, Rosaura, Dracula, Achante Rafaela, The Cat, Chicken Legs and others. The kept entertaining us and teaching us about their dances and way of life There are three more restaurants in addition to the main one, those you had to book in advance and the quality of food and presentation was absolutely fantastic The cleaning team works extremely hard to keep the rooms in immaculate condition, the bar staff also very friendly and extremely hard working The beach is very clean and we had great time there, the sea- although not transparent- worm and lovely. We swam every day, saw lots of puffer fish but they do not approach. Saw tiny jellyfish only first two day, but then they disappeared On overall we had the greatest time and the children did not want to leave! Will definitely recommend to visit this place!

Gorgeous hotel with some flaws

This hotel is beautiful: the gardens are lush and well kept. The villas (that is what they call the separate buildings that have a cluster of rooms) are well spaced. The rooms are clean, spacious and very comfortable: besides the bed there is a couch and a small table with two armchairs. The swimming pool is big and its shape is fun, with a nice swim up pool bar although the drinks are a little flat and too sweet. The beach is nicely sandy and has plenty of palm trees. The beach restaurant is very pleasant for lunch or snacks (excellent paella). The buffet food is OK but not great and there is plenty of choice. The desserts look very tempting but their taste needs to be improved. We liked the grill restaurant of the adults only section (but accessible to other guests). You may ask to slow down the different servings and take your time as you like. The seafood dishes we had at the other a la carte restaurant were delicious but the restaurant atmosphere is rather gloomy. Overall a fine and fun hotel. We had a great time. Yet there are some minuses. 1) Housekeeping: five out of the seven days we stayed here we did not have towels in the room when we came back from a day at the pool and the beach or from an excursion. Which meant we could not shower until they brought the towels, which often took several phone calls and up to one hour. Actually they remove the towels when cleaning the rooms in the morning, wash them, dry them and when they are dry bring them back to the rooms. Which means you are without towels most of the day. We complained about this to customer service but that did not improve the situation. To us this towel problem is a major flaw. 2) Noise: the ACs of all the rooms in the villas are installed at each end of the villas. We had our room on the ground floor at one end of the villa and we were blessed with the AC generators of the rooms in our villa plus, across the garden path, those of the rooms of the villa next to ours. Although the ACs do not spoil the view because they are hidden behind a wall of vegetation, it was impossible to stay on the terrace or leave the garden door open because of the noise. Fortunately, when the door was closed the noise did not disturb our sleep. We loved the pool but the music was too loud all day long. So loud that even at the beach you could hear it. Fortunately it was mostly local music which made it bearable because it added to the local flair. At the buffet restaurant the music was also very loud, even at breakfast. 3) Seawater and jellyfish: we knew before leaving this beach does not have the crystal clear water you expect at a Caribbean beach. At the very cheap last minute deal we booked our trip, that was a concession we were ready to make. The night we arrived there was an enormous thunderstorm (complete blackout at the hotel: no lights, no AC,…) leaving the water at the beach very muddy (because of the nearby river mouth). Only a couple of days later the water cleared up a little and people ventured into the sea. One swimmer came running out of the water with a severe jellyfish sting. The next day we witnessed the same thing happened to a young lady. The last day of our stay my daughter went into the sea just to come out of it with burning, itching and hurting streaks around her wrist and hand. The discomfort lasted for about three weeks. The dark brown scars are still visible to this day. (The picture I post is taken one week after the sting.) 4) Leaking bathroom ceiling: when the guests in the room above ours took a shower, the water leaked, not just dripping but pouring, through the ceiling into the bathtub at the very spot where one would stand to shower. Having reported the problem, a technician came to have a look, but that was it. We do not know whether they moved the guests from the top floor to another room or repaired the leak. 5) No space to hang your wet swimsuit to dry: the bathroom is quite large and has plenty of possibilities to put up a rack for drying clothes. In spite of these flaws, we enjoyed our first stay in the Dominican Republic very much, actually so much we are returning next month, but not at the Grand Bahia Principe La Romana.

Please don't waste your money.

I have never written a review before but I feel so disgusted at the two weeks we have just spent here. The locals, what can I say!! They take over every weekend and if I thought it would have been this bad the. We would not have wasted our hard earned money. There is so much to write but I would be here for hours and then you would be bored reading this so I will try and keep this as quick as I can. They are arrogant, rude and in all honesty behave like animals. We complained numerous times to the hotel manager Anny but they did nothing! We were offered the rest of our holiday in the premium room in the neighbouring hotel but meaning we had to leave a 6 & 17year old in a room on their own in a different hotel! Well that was a no brainier! Then they offered to move us to a choice of 2 other hotels within their group but said we had to pay for the $160 transfer, I think not! The manager said that the beach would either be 1-1.5 km away from the hotel. Then they offered a massage but I had sickness from the food and was not up to it and then said have a special meal and sign a disclaimer and wipe the slate clean! Did she think we were that stupid! That was offered as a last ditch attempt to keep us from saying anything. I wrote numerous emails to TUI but they haven't responded and kept speaking direct to the rep saying it was down to the hotel to sort out! I do believe we paid TUI for our holiday and not the hotel. No support from anyone and we wasted thousands of pounds on 2 rooms. The staff mostly worked hard but come Friday-Monday there is a increase of 30% more of the locals and no extra staff were drafted in. You couldn't get anywhere near the poo. Bar and it was often 4 deep but if you spoke Spanish you got served straight away, never mind the fact that you had already been standing there for 15 minutes! On these nights we had to queue for breakfast lunch and dinner. The food was rank!! Same food everyday and no change to it when they said they had a themed night. Vile. 3 out of 4 of us were vomiting due to the food. The sea was disgusting and full of stinging jellyfish. The picture on the website shows it all lovely and blue but it's greeny brown and we didn't go in all. One night one of the locals was having a screaming row with one of the family members after 11pm and the reception when called said "what do you want me to do about it" we my husband asked her to keep her voice down as we had a young child, she just screamed "I don't care". Please don't waste your money like we did. We will never return to the Dominican Republic as the locals are dispiccabsle and are ruining it for the holiday makers. In all our years of travelling this has been the worst ever and upset me deeply. TUI and the Grand Bahia are just useless and do not care what is happening as long as they have your money, they leave you high and dry.
