Grand Bahia Principe La Romana
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
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.
We were at the resort on April for 5 days. We were a group of 7: 2 mothers with 5 kids (ages 13, 13, 12, 12 and 8).First of all, if you are looking for blue clear water, it's not the place to be but we did excursions (Sanoia island and Catalina island). It was really really worth it. Amazing service from the guides Jose and Andres. The kids and us had a blast. The resort is beautiful and clean but our only issues was the service. We had problems with towels (blue and white) and blankets. But we spoke to the manager Willy. He solved all our problems, it was beyond our expectations. He was extremely nice, understanding and he solved our problems very very quickly.I just want say the service is not the same at all in the resort. The beach bar and the lounge and the main store (girls texting when we entered and no Hi) were the worst. Even the lobby bar, it depends on who is serving you. If they can take an example or learn from Darwin (waiter at the pool bar), Darlina (guest service), the scuba guys, Kristobal (reception) the activities guys and of course from Willy. Those people were amazing, super nice and especially smiling, very good besides manners. We didn't feel at all like we were disturbing them. I just want to thanks those people who made our stay enjoyable: Darwin, Darlina, scuba guys, activities guys and especially Willy.
We Travelled with a group of 9 through Air Transat from halifax to La romana, the bus ride was 1 hour 20 min not too bad from the Punta Cana Airport, check in was great even though we didnt arrive until almost 1am. Rooms were very clean, had no problems with water pressure of the AC, Bar fridge filled daily with water, pepsi and 7up which was great and chips. Always had fresh towels & facecloths daily, The pool Bar was great Raphael was our bartender and was awesome. Only one day the pool was somewhat dirty but was to be expected after the Rain we had one of the days. Hard to get chairs unless you were up at 5am-7am and most were taken even though it states on the Huts that you can not reserve, sometimes there were towels personal belongins on the chairs and no one showed up for the day. The food was great lots of Variety between the buffett and the Restraurant at the beach, we did one a la carte which was the French was quite good, service was quick. Beach was nice and clean, we spent one day down there, as reviews said the water was not clear but was nice and warm. I did get a lot of bites from sand fleas but that was too be expected. The Lobby was nice and clean and always somewheres to sit, my recommendation would be to have more waitress and there is a slight language barrier for drinks if you didn not order what was on the drink menu. Angel at the lobby bar was great as we didnt have to wait long for Drinks, we did not see any nightly entertainment as we spent most of the time outside of the lobby. We did do the Disco three out of 7 nights, first night was great but no one really dancing besides our gang, a lot of crowding at the bar, but that is to be expected as its the only location open after 11 to serve drinks. The snack bar was the same thing every night, but at least it was 24 hours which was good, we ordered room service the last night we were there and was great (hotdogs Hamburgers & fries). WE all had a fantastic time we would return again, but we never go to the same resorts twice lol.
This is our first time in the Dominican and My wife and I had a wonderful time. The staff was very friendly. Knowing some Spanish would make communication easier but many of the staff can speak multi languages.
In January, my wife and spent a glorious week at the Bahia Principe La Romana. Was it perfect? No. We had issues hot water. It was a little off putting to have a cold shower every day. The staff offered to change our room, but repacking and unpacking again seemed like too much effort. Having said that, we found the service to be excellent, the food more than acceptible for an all-inclusive and the facilities surprisingly good. The rooms were clean, bright and comfortable. The pool area was well maintained, with lounges appropriate to thenumber of guests.The beach was immaculate. It is true that the water is not bright blue, but that has to do with nature and not polution. The resort can hardly be held accountable for the colour of the ocean. On the whole, our experience was wonderful. For the most part, any complaints we heard while we were there we seriously first world problems. Folks need to get a bit of a grip. The management and staff, from our experience, were dedicated to goving us the best possible value for our money. I look forward to a return visit.
This is our third Grand Bahia resort in the DR we have travelled to. Despite having a great time we will travel to another location in the DR next year.The pool area .. bartender Jovanni .. drinks were awesome.The food buffet and restaurants were awesome.There is a nice 9 hole golf course on site.We personally just cannot get past the beach / discolored water. There is an underground river that passes across the beach and the water looks muddy. If you are a beach / ocean swimmer you will not appreciate the discoloration. If you are a pool person then you will enjoy your visit. There is one pool but it is huge .. the pool bar was very busy though but we just ordered two drinks at a time. :)The power went out at least 2 - 3 times a day but only for a minute or two. Of course my young teenage daughter was in the shower when it went out and I was not in the room. She was very scared as it was pitch black.This resort is still a great spot. Hector at the front desk .. actually all the front desk staff .. are great and very quick. If you've already booked your trip relax and enjoy. It's still a great resort.
