Our Opinion
A beautiful hotel that is growing in popularity. Lush green grounds surround an large free form pool and great beach area. The ocean water here is calm because of the protected bay. As with most Bahia Principe Resorts, the service her is great as is the food. A good choice for couples and families. Singles might not like the somewhat isolated location.

Nestled in a bay, on the southern coast of the Dominican Republic vacationers will find the friendly Grand Bahia Principe La Romana. Offering fantastic programs for children and activities for adults such as tennis, non-motorized watersports and games room; this property truly provides something for everyone. The four excellent restaurants, nightly entertainment including on-site casino and comfortable accommodations make the newly renovated Grand Bahia Principe La Romana an ideal holiday destination.

Location: Beachfront, located in the south of the Dominican Republic between Santo Domingo and La Romana on the Playa Mortero beach. 50km from Santo Domingo airport, 30km from La Romana airport and 2 hours from Punta Cana.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • tntalmeida : Kingston, Canada
Very average

My husband and I visited from January 5th - 12th.There is nothing exceptional about this resort. It is certainly not a 5 start and the trip advisor 4 star rating is a little more than it deserves. Our vacation was fine, nothing stands out as being horrible or exceptional. Most of what I read in the reviews was very accurate so I wasn't surprised. -the beach is not very nice-the food is just okay. Pretty much always the same and not always hot-don't expect speedy drink service at the pool or buffet. Your meal will likely be done before you receive your to serve yourself-water pressure in the room is horrible and the water does not get hot!-beds are comfortable and the room is pretty clean-age and wear is starting to show in some areas of the resort-horrible wi-fi connection -very aggressive sales pitch to buy into 'bahia vacations' it will eat up an hour of your vacation...if you have the will power to say NO save your self from wasting your time...unless of course you are interested -staff are not overly friendly and nobody goes out of their way....if I did have one major complaint, something that totally turned me off from visiting again, it would be about the lack of friendly service -as an FYI to management, you should do something about Lisette, she is a special kind of rude and many of your guests were talking about her in particular. If she can't be friendly maybe serving guests is not the job for her...As a side note we heard from others that visited La Romana; service was an issue everywhere. Dreams in La Romana has a beautiful beach, my husband got to see it when we stopped to pick passengers up and he went snooping around. A few people at the airport talked about their visit to Punta Cana and said it was excellent!! We've been twice before, thought we would try something different...wish we had reconsidered. To sum it up...Bahia Principe La Romana is far from a horrible vacation but it certainly does not deserve a 5 star rating.I give it a 3 star rating at bestHappy and safe travels!!

Boring boring boring

Never seen a 5 star hotel this hotel is absolutely boring entertainment was shocking same songs same dances same stuff different day.Nothing for children I took my daughter aged 5 to the mini club nothing there for them apart from one staff member sat there very lonely playing on her phone due to BORED. Kids entertainment at night was 15minutes so don't get excited!!!!No room service well there is but u have to upgrade to get it. I've stayed in 5 star and there 5 star is outstanding this is more like a 3 star.Staff are very sneaky charge extra dollar on top of your purchase so make sure u add it up before u go to the till.People who I spoke to had bad belly ache and diarrhoea. Can't fault the dinner area they make sure everyone have hand wash on before they are seated. Beach isn't blue it has a dirty river flowing into it and very mucky and stinks !!!Never in my life will I stay here and I know a few more people will be agreeing with me!!All the destinations I've been on this is the worse I've been to!!!Oh yes avoid doctor I had a water infection I was sent to a hospital where they tried to do everything to me also trying to charge £1200 before I was seen, in the end I got it down to £740 for a urine test !! Yes I was taken for a idiot and lucky I have brilliant travel insurance!!! Just be very careful take your own medication.

From Sunrise to Sunset

Stayed Dec 30-Jan 6,2017. Clean, well kept Resort. A few things to improve on ( could have waitress/waiter serves around the pool, or more staff at the pool bar) Enjoyed our bartenders: Kelvis and Dawlyn kept the mojitos just right, and the mood entertaining! Thought the food at the restaurants was enjoyable, favorite restaurant was the French restaurant>> Outstanding! The New Year's Eve dinner at the buffet restaurant was amazing as well as the outside celebration, complete with champagne and Fireworks followed by tons of dancing! Thank you! The pool is in a perfect location.. you have full sun all day..sunrise to sunset, the beach is close to the pool as well so you can stay on the beach and still enjoy the entertainment from the pool area.

I traveled from Nov. 21 for 7 days. And I can honestly say it has been my best trip thus far. Accommodation was amazing. I booked with air transat band stayed in a villa like suite. It was very clean and spacious. FOOD: The food was amazing. Each night they have different themes such as Mexican night and USA. I never once got sick during my trip so don't let that change your mind about staying here. HOTEL STAFF:The staff were so kind and work so hard. Sometimes they work like 2 weeks straight before getting a day off. Please make sure you tip them when you stay.ENTERTAINMENT: Each night there was something new. Highlight was the Michael Jackson show. EXCURSIONS: I booked 3 excursions with the help of my air transat rep, Speedy who was so extremely nice and cute! lol. I booked a trip to Santo Domingo which is so worth going to, A trip to see La Romana which was absoulutye beautiful. and a trip to Saona Island which is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. I also got to hold a star fish! I also purchased an excursion from viator, and it was a mess. they booked me on the wrong tour luckily I got my money back. So thankful I booked my other excursions through my air transat rep. THE ONLY NEGATIVE: The only down side I did get sand fly bites which only appeared in the morning towards the end of my trip after I woke up. Based on research sand flies are around when it rains a lot. I'm not sure if they spray the room for bugs but this is something I would love them to look into in the future.WEATHER: During my trip, it rained every day. Something to consider when traveling in Nov. during hurricane season, nontheless the sun was in full force the last 2 days of my trip. I will be back! This trip was everything and more. To the hotel staff please keep up the excellent work.

Almost Perfect!

We just wanted to compliment the buffet chefs & staff who put on a spectacular Christmas dinner complete with lobster and all of the usual fixings. You can really get a sense they take pride in what they do and the presentation and selection was excellent. Food in general over our stay was varied and enjoyable for the most part.The grounds are great as well as the beach & pool area. Overall cleanliness & condition of the rooms was very good.Minor complaints: The free Wi-Fi in the lobby was very unreliable although I understand they were planning to change service providers. We don't quite get why there is a $4 per day charge to use the room safe in an 'all inclusive' resort. This is usually something offered free to limit hotel liability. Not fond of timeshare sales people in the lobby but that is a personal issue.Overall, this is a very clean & well managed resort that we greatly enjoyed.
