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.


Overview

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.

A large hotel with a large beach and great service

I stayed here for one week as a solo traveller I can not praise the hotel or the staff enough. Its a bigger hotel than i would normally go to but there is a long beach to walk around. The hotel is clean the staff are friendly and kept checking that I was OK. There are too many good staff to mention. One lady in the bar whose name was similar to Lindsay always put in that bit more effort and kept me supplied with drinksTHANK YOU FOR A GREAT BREAK AT YOUR HOTELThere is plenty to do and everyone finds time to talk to you. Danial one of the gardeners spent time to talk to me about the plants and the gardens which were immaculate during my stay.Great food and enjoyable a la carte restaurantsHope to visit again

Amazing holiday.I would like to say a couple of information from that amazing holiday.

My partner and Me just returned from a two week stay at this Bahia Principe hotel. The stay was very good. The weather was very nice and it was very hot every day around 35 degrees. Two times it rained but it did not stop us in a nice time. There was a lot of choice of taste.Everyone found something for themselves: fruit mosaic, Mediterranean cuisine Asia and many other delicacies. We also had a choice of several a la carte restaurants just need reserve .The evening was also not boring. The hotel offered a lot of entertainment in the form of performances, In the evening there was a very nice sunbathing area. The pool was very nice and clean in the pool bar, sometimes the beer was short but the service try to quick sorting out that happen . The weekend was a slider from which they could also enjoy the adults. Special happy Dominikana and Olympic game on the beach . The people were very nice although hard They were able to communicate with us because they spoke poor English. Rooms cleaned a big and clean. We had a room 2713 with a view of the sea alone candles every day we admired the sunset.the whole stay i found very good and i would highly recommend 😊For now what’s we will be improvements 1. On the pool bar more cooling machines for beer , somethings beer was available on the pool sometimes on the top bar 2. Cleaning room services sometimes start 5pm , we thing too late because we already been in the room 3. Exchange rate in reception was absolutely poor for example 1 pound 48 pesos , where on the bank on La Romana was 62 pesos per pound 4. The tourist (special on weekend) eating food in the swimming pool , then was a lot of mess next day in the water 5. Evening pianists definitely need to replace he completely lost the hearing, but singer was pretty good All the rest for ours opinions was great We can give 4 star from 5 scale .Oh forgot 1 wood pin from the balustrade in balcony was rotten Room 2713 please replaceHave fun 👌😊Best regardsG+W

Amazing time had by both!

What a fantastic holiday..We had a few reservations due to the recent weather in the area but our fears were non starters. Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly staff and taken to our room. It was gorgeous! Huge bed, clean soft pillows and sheets. Great facilities in the room. We were tired so grabbed a snack from the beach restaurant and went to bed.Awaking in the morning we were greeted by beautiful blue skies and hot hot sun! This continued for the week mainly.Food was tremendous in the restaurant, really, really yummy! In fact we didn't bother to book the restaurants as the buffet was so good..The beach was lovely, so clean and well looked after. Ok the sea wasn't crystal clear but it was still warm and inviting.The stars of the whole holiday were the staff. We had such fun with the animation team- Rosara, 'Chicken legs', 'Dracula', 'Cat'.. To name but a few. Their continuous happy disposition and energy was infectious. It is loud when the music plays but if that offends move away..! The pool is plenty big enough to get some peace and quiet. In the main lobby bar we met the most amazing man, Luis, he was the manager. What a credit to the whole place! So sweet and attentive and not in an over bearing way.. Also Yanet the waitress was fabulous.. I hope that the management team see this and give them all a pat on the back!All in all we both have the holiday blues and can not wait to go again.. Thank you to everyone for making it so wonderful...

Not bad...

Where to start....firstly we did enjoy our holiday as much as we could, but there are some faults with the running of the place.Be warned that every weekend locals do come and stay at the resort, I get this is a constant flow for the company but this does cause frustration amongst the other guests. The locals come in larger groups, our first real experience was lots of locals in the pool until late being loud and obnoxious. Most of the drinks you like will likely run out during the weekend, you may also find no hot water in the morning for a shower, constant power cuts which is annoying to say the least. Meal times are overrun by the locals barging in, creating their own all you can eat buffet on a single plate.Speaking to other guests there was obvious drug use by the pool, we did also observe the one lady who got so drunk she passed out. Local kids eating in the pool which on that note the pool gets a lot dirtier on the weekends. The attitudes of the staff change and we do feel sorry for them as the locals are rude and demanding to the staff so this is no fault to the staff, they just get overworked by the locals.You get the point.As you will see reviews about the sea, they are true and you cannot see even a foot in front of you this is due to the river. I know the hotel will try and defend this with the rating they have received but take the advice the was awful don't get any ideas of snorkelling in this sea.The food does get repetitive it's only on a one week rota, the food is also very bland maybe this is so guest can season the food themselves.We only tried the Italian a la carte which was nice but not many options let alone many Italian options.The rooms are nice enough, large beds air con that does work most the time.Fridge refilled every day clean towels etcI would fault the shower though, a water bottle with small holes would work better, that is after ten minutes of running the water to get it luke warm.The safe....haha don't expect a refundable deposit or a cheap safe, it's about $54 for two weeks. Better safe than sorry I guess.Drinks are the usual non branded cheap chemical tasting stuff but that was expected.Staff are friendly and will always greet you and say goodbye couldn't fault any of them and they are all very helpful.The pool is large but dirtier towards the pool bar and volleyball side so we tended to stay towards the other end.All in all it is not the worst place and you can have a good time, it is just a couple of faults that let the place down.
