"Lovely time at an excellent resort"

At Grand Bahia Principe La Romana the staff is very pleasant, the animation team is the best and the hotel overall is very good. We stayed for 6 nights for my husband birthday and the staffs are very friendly and the food is top notch. The Specialty restaurants are real fine dining and the nightly live performance shows are really professional. Getting there from Santo Domingo is only 45 minutes and the area is more relaxed than Punta Cana. My husband and I definitely enjoyed our vacation time at this Hotel and planning to go back this November :) and this will be our second time here.... I hope to have a great time and create great memories as we did it last time!

Great value

Traveled alone and never once lacked company. Everyone is friendly and attentive. Rooms are clean and service is goid. There is a variety of food and dining area has a good staff on their heels at all times. However, I must make a special mention to the lobby bar staff. These guys I rate as making one feel good. I was treated like family and was treated with silk gloves. This was the highlight of my trip and I was glued to this area for they made my stay special. Jesus, Rene, Carlos, and the girls are all one of a kind. The resort also has good entertainment, shops, spa, abd casino. Thou the casino is fairly small and needs some updating. Finally, wish they would extend the wifi but, if they did nobody would leave their romms. Great time and would return. If there is something you don't like, speak up and they will fix it!

Excellent Resort

Travelled here with friends, in September, to celebrate their 30th Anniversay and we had a great time. The resort is spotless, the staff are really friendlyand the food was fabulous. Before leaving the U.K, we had read some really negative comments about this resort and they must have stayed at another resort. We had requested a room with a balcony with a view of the sea and that was exactly what we got. The room was large, spotlessly clean and with the biggest bed I have seen. We had bathrobes, coffee making facilities, an iron and ironing board, umberella, all inclusive mini bar, towels changed twice daily and night time chocolates. There is a large flat screen TV but unfortunately no English channels, which we did find rather strange. For our friends anniversay the hotel decorated our friends room, left them chilled champagne, a fresh fruit platter, gifts and chocolates. They were so surprised. A lot of people had complained on tripAdvisor about the food at this resort, with a lack of choice. We stayed for two weeks and vowed to eat something diferent every meal, which we did. Considering they are trying to look after so many nationalities, the choices were great with something different every day. I especially enjoyed the dessert tables which was huge and changed for every meal, often incorpoating a decorative chocolate or sugar display. Iin the main buffet, we were always made really welcome and the service was quick, friendly and efficient. Oscar is fantastic. As part of the all inclusive we were able sample all of the a la carte restaurants. The Italian was great, with probably the best steak I have tasted. The French restaurant was good but the service was exceptionally fast. Our favorite was the seafood, where we celebrated our friends anniversay. A Special Thanks to Leisa for all of your help in making it a great night. The entertainment was a lot of fun and a special thanks to La Diva, Chantel and the annimation team for all their non-stop energy and effort. We had a lot of fun in joining in the games and learning to dance. My wife loved the exercise classes. I am not one for evening shows, as they are usually amateurish and boring, but these were great. The circus show outside was really professional and exciting Yes, the sea is not blue but it is still lovely and warm. The beach is kept spotlessly clean. I must commend the resort for the enormous effort put into restoring the beach and pool area after hurricain Matthew. The place was devistated, with rubbish and debris everywhere, but in two days they had the area cleaned up ready for the guests to use. We booked three trips through Frank, the in-house tour organiser. Soane Island was a great trip to the Island where they made the bounty chocolate advert, perfect white sand beach and clear turquise sea. On the speed boat trip to the island, we stopped in the middle of the sea and had a surreal moment. We stood in waist deep warm water, having photos taken with huge star fish and drinking rum and coke. Unfortunately, our return trip was marred by a group of drunked English yobs, what an embarrassment. Our second excurssion was a trip to the outback. Although this was along day it was really good, with a lot packed into the trip. This was topped off with swimming in a wonderful fresh water waterfall. Lastly, we were meant to go to Cantalina Island but had to cancel due Matthew so we went quad biking instead. This was a lot of fun. It was dirty, muddy and very exciting. The only downside to our holiday was that we had paid Thomson's for a upgraded room, which we had but others on our flight were given the same standard of room and ammentities for free. Overall, we really enjoyed our holiday and would not hesstiate in recommending it to others and booking again.

Lovely time!

We booked this holiday a year ago and the Thomson brochure said bookings before Jan 2016 would automatically get a free upgrade at the hotel. To be honest when we arrived at the hotel we had forgotten about this offer and first impressions were good. Reception staff very welcoming and a porter took our bags to the room. As we arrived late afternoon we unpacked, changed, went for something to eat and an early night. The rooms were spacious and the bed and pillows very comfortable. The following morning we went to book a la carte restaurants. The first night we went to the gourmet restaurant, table booked for 7.30pm. We were out of it in less than 40 mins. I hadn't finished my starter when the waiter brought our main course. I indicated I was still eating and he simply moved my starter onto the side plate and put the main meal down. My husband said the service was quicker than McDonalds. 2 nights later we visited the Italian, nothing special and so we decided not to go to the fish restaurant the following night and didn't visit the a la carte's again. The buffet restaurant was okay but very much the same food every night. The bars- poorly staffed, poorly stocked and shocking service. There was a limited drinks menu. We didn't expect branded drinks to be in the all-inclusive deal, but even when you were prepared to pay they didn't have the drinks in stock and drinks on the all-inclusive offer were often not available. My husband never did get his mojito. More than once they ran out of gin and diet coke. You often waited 20minutes to be served at the bar and the waitress service was even slower. The bar closes at 11pm but at 10.45pm drinks were been put away and you could then only get beer. Not only did the bar close at this time, the lights also went off, so you were left finishing your drink, if you were lucky enough to have one, in darkness. We are grown- ups on holiday! One night during a heavy rainstorm the room ceiling began to leak and water was running down the wall. We rang the desk to report it and they sent a maid with a mop and some towels to deal with it. When we showed her it was running into an electric socket that the TV was plugged into she rang the desk. They said someone would look at it the next day and weren't concerned by the possible danger. The beach- expected blue sea and white sands. Instead brown water, apparently due to river estuary along the coast and the beach was very small. In the sea there was garden netting acting as a barrier so swimming in the sea was very restricted and due to ongoing, intense building work in the area a walk along the beach was limited. We have visited the Dominican Republic several times, both the north and south and had wonderful experiences. So if you do visit this hotel and you are a first time visitor to the island please don't let it put you off. It truly can be paradise, just choose the right hotel. No we won't return or recommend this place for a holiday and all other English people we spoke to where of the same mind. P.S. we never did get the upgrade.
