Not a 5 Apple! More like a 3!

Rooms are dated and could use some maitenane, but clean. food is average. Coud not make a cocktail. You never knew what you were getting! Grounds were nice. I did not see a bug there, but somehow I got quite a few bug bites. Wi-Fi in lobby is not very good. It was down a lot. The VIP island excursion to Somai(?) was not as described to us.

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.

We loved every minute. They go out of their way to make sure you are being served , should it be at the buffet, restaurant, pool,or your room. Everything is always spotless. They buffer the floors !! Shine !!! The manager is always on top of things.

Fantastic

Hi we just finished our week in Grand Bahia Principe La Romana after reading a few bad reviews we were worried about our stay but everything was ok maybe with a few minuses 1) sea around hotel is not clear is dirty 2) In weekend is lots of local people so is loud and they sit around pool bar so is not easy to get drink .Twice I have to speak with bar staff to start serve people from abroad whom waiting more then locals Most of staff very friendly! Smiling faces I had a problem with beach towel someone stole from my sunbed after conversation with manager everything was sorted with new towel card in my hand (no charge ) Big plus for free safe ,lots of food u can eat all day .Few words about alcohol is no just local vodka and whisky u can drink Stolichnaya , Smirnoff, J&B, VAT69 or Famous Grouse. So I can say that the holiday went well 😉 Thank you very much all staff from Grand Bahia Principe La Romana

TUI should be ashamed to offer this Hotel for a 2 week family holiday.

This rates as one of the worst hotels I have every stayed in. Please read other guest reviews and look at the hotels cut & paste response’s. This will help you realise the hotel staff Just Don’t Care, (I know that’s a very big generalisation and to be fair there are a few great staff members, but you will have to find them). The majority just appear to, not care and definitely don’t care about you and your family experience. I had many (some small some not) issues and complaints and requested to meet with a manger on more than 1 occasion and still never met one, they just hide. The TUI on site staff are not supportive or helpful. TUI staff intimated many of my minor issues (they all add up) were the first time anyone has raised these, when I then showed some of the issue’s on TripAdvisor, the attitude changed and then it became; “what do you expect, this is Dominican Republic not London.” When I asked to speak to a more senior member, of the on island TUI team I was told, “I am the manager, I will deal with you.” I later found out this was not the case. When challenged he admitted there were more senior staff, but I was not able to speak to them! So much for we are available 24/7 I asked about changing hotel to the TUI Sensatori, I requested please just get me a price of what it will cost to move, so not asking TUI to carry the cost, happy to pay. As it was my mistake, I had chosen this horrible resort, TUI had not forced me there. Over the next 3 days asking every day no price quote was forth coming. They just don’t care. I been traveling with TUI (Thomson’s) yearly for the last 12 years, and this is my first experience of truly bad service from their staff. If you are still reading you obviously have interest in this resort, so again please be careful before booking. Other reviews mention the locals descending on the resort at the weekend. This is a horrible experience. It is extremely difficulty to enjoy a drink or even get into a restaurant at these times. It totally overwhelms the staff. The pushing, shoving and noise is hard to describe, you should book somewhere else, don’t chance it. Again look at other reviews, No water pressure, big issue for wife and daughters to wash their hair, ok for an old guy like me with no hair. No hot water Service at bars is slow and limited choice, often use plastic cups at weekends are they run out of glass, not what you expect of a 5* resort. Buffet restaurant can be a 30 minute wait at any meal time just to get in especially at the weekends. You will then wait for drinks and they may never appear. After some amazing resorts with TUI, this is truly the worst and you have a choice, so go to another hotel, and don’t put your family through this place. Beach is great, rooms are super-size, but need refurbished. Pool area is good and never an issues to get a sunbed.

Great place bad medical attention

This resort was amazing, the entertainment staff was great. Miguel from entertainment was great. He welcomed our family with open arms. We were a family of 27 and they were very attentive. The one huge complaint I had was their emergency staff and services are awful. For a resort, you should have a doctor on site and not charged to be seen. We traveled very far and paid alot of money to get charged just to be seen by a doctor. My brother was badly hurt and had to be driven to an affiliated hospital 2 and a half hours away. Once there they wanted to charge money without providing a bill. They want money onsite before even being seen. The resort needs to be better equipped for situations like this. It almost seems like the infirmary staff was scamming us. The staff from there are rude and unprofessional. She provided alot of false information and just wanted our CASH! The resort was amazing and the staff as well. The club was amazing, the food was okay,more gourmet, not traditional foods from DR. The rooms were very spacious and clean. Housekeeping did a great job keeping our room clean. The water is not drinkable, make sure to use water bottles, also the bathrooms smelled awful due to poor water quality. The pool and swim up bar was great, music not so much, very outdated music. BEWARE,drinks are not watered down. The shows are amazing every night, especially Michael Jackson. Overall we had an amazing time!!!
