Turquoise Water! NOT!

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.

The hotel room was not clean and the plumbing and air conditioning were malfunctioning throughout the stay. The hotel pool was dirty and there was an awful odor that remained for the length of our stay. The Apple rep on location was not available during the posted hours and did not make himself available to answer questions about departure details. I would highly advise anyone inquiring about this resort to stay clear. I really enjoyed my trip to Punta Cana in March of 2016 through Apple Vacations, but this experience really impacted my thoughts about taking future trips through Apple because this location did not come anywhere close to meeting expectations.

SAD TO BE DISAPPOINTED
TEQUILASHOTS, Wayne, New Jersey
Wed Jan 17 06:43:44 EST 2018
This is the 3rd Bahia Principe i've stayed in and i was completely disappointed with everything except how well the grounds and the hotel room is kept. HOTEL ROOM AND GROUNDS: THEY CHARGE YOU FOR A SAFE DEPOSIT BOX ON A DAILY BASIS!!! PARKING IS FREE BUT THEY ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR VEHICLE (its all i'll say on that ) I stayed in room 2110 which was perfect because it was close enough to the beach and pool but far enough to not hear the noise from it. i was also close to the main lobby which is where the main buffet is located and some of the a'la carte restaurants. The main lobby tends to have live entertainment at nite, theres one bar and servers do come around the tables to see if you want something to drink-- the DOWN SIDE TO THIS HOTEL--ALL OVER THIS HOTEL IS THE LACK OF REINFORCEMENT OF NONE SMOKING AREAS. THE POOL, THE LOBBY, THE BEACH PEOPLE SMOKED ALL OVER THE PLACE, LITTLE SIGNS ARE UP ON TABLES WITH NO-SMOKING BUT PEOPLE WOULD JUST SIT THERE AND DO IT AND EMPLOYEES AND MANAGERS WOULD JUST PASS BY AND NOT SAY ANYTHING. THIS I SAW WITH MY OWN EYES. At the end of my stay i brought it up to the person that was checking me out and her response was that if they say anything they will get a bad review. So i guess the health of those that do not smoke or the children who are all over the premise is not as important as to the reviews the hotel gets. She also mentioned how they were a 3STAR hotel--- another employee when i was checking in and was shocked i had to pay for the safe also reminded me they were a 3STAR hotel, i know the price was good for my stay but you would think they wouldn't really tell something like that to a customer who is potentially going to make references. I had an additional 5 guest come with me on this trip and stay at this Bahia Principe because they have always heard me talking praises about the Hotel Chain. The grounds are kept immaculate, these men and women do a great job of keeping everything clean. My cleaning ladies stocked my fridge everyday and literally scrubbed down my bathtub everyday, i was amazed and tipped them well. Please keep this in mind when you visit any resort, 2 to 3 bucks is nothing and can go a long way for the service these people provide. THE FOOD: The main buffet near the lobby has a variety of food but a lot of it seems to have been made for people with no taste buds, i mean i understand they serve a whole array of different cultures but a little bit of salt or seasoning can go a long way and some foods demand it. Whats the use of it looking good and tasting like paper. I did like the night where it was seafood night. Other than that we all stuck to what we knew we could season up atleast with salt. The desserts all over the resort are gorgeous but they all taste like nothing, bland. I have breakfast, lunch and dinner at this buffet and nothing but the staff really changed. I also tried the restaurant EL PESCADOR AND ALSO LE GOURMET, once was enough for me. the food was nothing to write home about and decided to just stick to going to the buffet by the lobby---if i was going to have the same bland food i might aswelll not have to do a reservation for it. Both restaurants serve the same menu for kids which included chicken fingers which in both places were burnt. i also tried the restaurant IL CAPRICCIO (italian) this restaurant the food wasn't bad, but what i really liked was the little buffet they had within it--- had a good variety of things and most of it actually had taste to it. I also ate at the buffet by the beach called LAS OLAS, theres an employee there called Juliana--- she was great went beyond to serve her guest. My sister inlaw lost my nieces baby bottle and the hotel stores did not have one, she actually had someone bring us one from outside the grounds, of course we paid for it but just the thought that she would try to help us and did greatly shows just how much of a great person she is. THE LIQUOR- as mentioned before this was my 3rd stay at a Bahia Principe, if its not broken why fix it....ive stayed at the one in Jamaica and in SAMANA, DOM. REPUBLIC and i've never had any problems with my drinks, but this resort might as well be serving water. Not one drink was worth the time it took the bar tender to make. A capirina tasted the same as a rum and coke, you may think im exaggerating but if youre looking to have at least one descent drink then bring your own liquor and make it yourself. I RARELY GO TO RESORT SHOWS BUT THIS TIME I DID AND I SAW THE MICHAEL JACKSON IMPERSONATOR---- I MUST SAY I WAS MORE THAN IMPRESSED BRAVO TO THAT PERFORMER HE MADE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU WERE LOOKING AT THE REAL MICHAEL AND ALSO REMINDED YOU WHY HE WAS SUCH A GREAT PERFORMER. BEACH AND POOL -- beach are is wonderful the pool area is immaculate, plenty of beach chairs on both sides.

Luckily I traveled with many people

Every July I go on my annual family/friends vacation for a whole week. This past July we decided on La Romana Bahia Principe because it was very affordable for everyone and had the main three things we look for when we search for our destination every year: -Food -Pool -Nightclub The resort itself was beautiful and aesthetically pleasing. The only issue I had was that there wasn't much to do during the day. Being that we planned to stay in an all inclusive resort, we were expecting to have day time entertainment like a DJ or maybe pool Zumba. There was just a bar, low music, and if we were lucky a volleyball to play some beach volleyball. We traveled with kids and it was very disappointing to find out that there was no sort of entertainment team. Our daily routine for this particular trip was wakeup, breakfast, pool, pool, pool, beach, pool until our fingers pruned, dinner, nightclub, bed. My family and I ended up bored to the point where we decided to leave the resort and venture out WHICH WAS NOT SOMETHING WE INTENDED TO DO. Of course we made the best of our stay, but to be brutally honest, I will not be returning.

Started our stay at the grand Bahia principe La romana a few days ago, didn’t start too well as we got there at 12:45 and was still waiting to get into our room at 4 o’clock but once we got into it it was lovely, large, tidy and good air conditioning. The pool is fantastic loads of sun beds, food is good for my partner, ok for me, I’m a vegetarian and fussy eater so a bit same old same old. The best thing is our waitress Yonilka Guerrero who is fantastic, she has not let us go without a drink, so friendly and attentive, an absolute treasure. Keep hold of this girl, she’s worth her weight in gold.

Excellent Resort - Friendly Staff!

Stayed at the Bahia Principe La Romana from January 4-11, 2018. The property is just the right size - there was never any line ups or large crowds. The food was excellent and the service was friendly. We were lucky to get room 2709. We had an excellent view of the beach and ocean. Since it was a corner room we also had a great view of the pool! The specialty restaurants were very good and the bars were well stocked. This is a great place to go to unwind and enjoy the sun! Ella and Gloria were amazing in the gold lounge!

Second stay wasn’t so perfect like the first one in 2015

It was our second vacation in this hotel. We were there in 2015 and because we were very satisfied, we did it again and stayed 11 days here in January 2018. Positive: Hotel is still very clean, Food is very delicious, Beach is absolutely nice and silent. Staff is very polite. Negative: Animation people were much more „aggressive“ in convincing people to be part of the show. The trip to „El Limon and the Bacardi island“ booked via Bahia Principe Tours was horrible. Horse Abuse, Mass tourism and dangerous when it rained before. Absolutely not comparable to the trip we did 2 years ago to Saona. Stay away from that trip. The staff at the bar and the lobby seemed to be unable to cope with the guest wishes. Compared to 2015 it took more than 45 minutes to order a drink or to get one. Conclusion: It was okay but not more than that. Maybe the glamour is gone, we‘ve had the first time. I think we will try another resort next time when we visit the Dominican Republic again.
