Stayed at this resort between April 6 and April 13, 2014. The resort was very nice, modern and clean. We were fortunate to have a lovely ocean view room overlooking the pool and beach restaurant and the weather was exceptional every day. The staff were very friendly. I want to give specific mention to America, who did our various restaurant bookings (it is a pain to book 14 people into an a la carte), Gloria our lobby bar waitress, who was very patient with our large group, and Alexis our shuttle transfer driver between the La Romana and Bouganville lobbies.
Bouganville is attached to the La Romana Gran Bahia Principe property, so there was a good selection of shared amenities. We visited this resort as part of a group of 7 couples who were all taking a "kid free" vacation. The Bouganville has a separate lobby, check-in, pool and buffet restaurant from the La Romana part of the property. We had no complaints or issues with any part of our booking or arrangements. I would not hesitate to recommend this resort to anyone.
Rather than offer a series of complaints or compliments, I would offer some suggestions or observations to those who are considering this property:
- The Bouganville is an adult only property, but La Romana is not. So while your beach and pool are kid free, there are kids on the other part of the beach, or at the a la carte restaurants, or the La Romana buffet or lobby.
- The adult only section, at least while we were there, is decidedly of retirement age demographic.
- The beach is very beautiful, but as other comments have pointed out, the water in this bay is not crystal clear. It was never a problem for us, but it is a fact. The bottom isn't entirely sandy, either, so be aware.
- The resort is only a 30 minute ride from the La Romana airport. It is even faster if you book a separate third party transit rather than go with the coach bus as part of a vacation package.
- Only two of our group had any functional Spanish language skills at all. Spanish comes in handy when you are on excursions as not all individuals or operators have strong English skills. In our case, any of our transit drivers (to and from the airport, plus an excursion to Santo Domingo) were Spanish-only speakers.
- US Dollars worked very well as currency on the resort, but Dominican Pesos worked just as well off resort.
- If you golf at the par 3, nine hole course on the property, be advised that it cannot be charged to your Bouganville room, nor paid by credit card. It is cash only, which was not advertised to us beforehand.

If you a looking for easy access to the beach, this is the place for you. It was four stairs from our room to the beach. Ocean view rooms are hard to come by. The best views are on the third floor. No problem for young legs.
Lots of attention was payed to cleanliness ans service. Communication was a bit of a problem as this new resort grows its staff.
We were not prepared for the al cart restaurants to be at the adjoining resort, reservations were needed . In the future I'm sure they will update their web site to clear up a few vague items.
We like the resort enough to return, but are not crazy about the Punta Cana Airport or the 1:15 ride to the place.( would recommend flying into La Romana if possible.

We stayed at the Luxury Bouganville from April 13th to the 20th. It was a wonderful trip from beginning to end. We had arranged to be married there on the beach and with the invaluable assistance of Reyni, the wedding coordinator and the rest of the staff it was a wonderful experience. No stress at all! She looked after everything. Our room was beautiful and kept spic and span by Roberto. He was a treasure and always went out of his way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Ernesto on the front desk could always be counted on to keep us smiling whenever we had a question or were just passing through the lobby. The entire resort was kept spotlessly clean by the staff. Everyone was so friendly and always smiling that you could not help smiling back. It just made the entire holiday that much better. We would definitely go back to this resort and will be telling all of our friends about it. Many thanks again to all of the staff that made our holiday and our wedding something to remember forever!

My husband and I returned on Sunday from a 7 night stay at the LBPB resort. We went with two other couples, all in our thirties, and were a bit worried after reading the reviews about people getting sick, the murky water on the beach and the resort being too quite and boring.
When we arrived we discovered the most beautiful resort we saw so far and had an amazing week! There was a good mix of older and younger people and something for everyone to enjoy.
The resort is brand new and spotless. The rooms are big and airy, all come with a king size bad (and a very firm mattress), a jacuzzi and huge shower, and two sinks in the bathroom.
The main buffet is airy and clean, quite, not crowded even at the busiest times. The food was very good! We saw things that we really didn't expect to find in an all inclusive resort- Black caviar for breakfast, lamb chops, ribs, they even had a lobster night (whole grilled lobster, no limit per person). The resort has 4 ala carte restaurants, but after trying 2 of them we decided to stick with the buffet, where the selection is much bigger.
The pool was clean, the water nice and warm,it had lots of sits, a good swim up bar and there is a separate quite jacuzzi area.
It's true that the water on the beach wasn't clear, but it was calm and warm. The beach is wide and long with lots of spots in the shade (we never had to reserve a spot, even when arrived to the beach after 10 am).
There is no show in the luxury side of the resort, just live music in the evening that ends at 10pm, and no activities by the pool or beach. But the guests have a full access to the other part of the resort- Behia Proncipe La Romana, which has a show every night, disco and lots of pool/ beach activities.
But what really made all the difference was the wonderful staff! Everybody was friendly, polite and helpful. Manuella and Mario the managers were walking constantly around the resort (always smiling and extremely friendly to guests and their staff) making sure that the guests are satisfied. America in the reception was very friendly and helpful with restaurant reservations and other requests we had. Johnny, Ellias and Jeancarlos in the main buffet were the best! They learned our preferred spot in the dining room on the first day and reserved the table for us for the whole week. By the second morning they knew what everyone drinks (coffee and the harder stuff) and brought it to our table before we even asked. They made sure we had all we wanted and it was enough to just mention something and it would appear on our table in a second. All the servers where very attentive and quick, we never had to wait long for service. Same goes for Ramon from the lobby bar and Adolphina from the pool bar!
I would definatlly return and recommend this resort to anyone in a heart bit!
Another great vacation

We recently spent two weeks at this resort. Had a wonderful time. There is nothing I need to complain about. Under the direction of the resident manager Manuela Fahringer and her assistant Mario the resort was run very well. Yes this resort hasn't been opened a year yet and I'm sure that if there were any problems they would be fixed. The whole management team were working hard to make sure that everybody was having a great holiday.I would definately say that this resort is great.
