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.

Really nice place but very trashy people

We had a really good time here. The resort is very nice and well-maintained. We knew in advance (thanks to Trip Advisor) that the water wasn't turquoise blue, so that didn't bother us. The weather sort of sucked, but we didn't care. Even when it rained we stayed in the pool.The truly unfortunate thing about this place is that they attract a lot of really trashy people. Not sure how or why -- maybe they do a lot of promotions for locals and Dominicans living in Florida -- but it's like you're in the ghetto. If you're used to elegant, well-mannered people in 4- or 5-star resorts in places like Europe, you can forget about that here. They blast ghetto music at the pool bar all day long. Some of the visitors just hang out there all day singing at the top of their lungs, and I saw a couple of them in the pool wearing jean shorts with their underwear peeking out. On the last day of our stay, someone pooped in the pool (my daughter discovered it) and they had to shut it down. Anyway, it's unfortunate they attract such trashy people, because the resort really is nice.

Had a lovely holiday but.....

The hotel is beautiful and Monday-Thursday it's a lovely peaceful place unfortunately Friday-Sunday they let the locals in and they run wild dropping litter all over the place, taking towels, sun beds and anything else you leave out!! They take over the pool bar & are handed full bottles of rum by bar staff it's quicker to run to the lobby bar to get your drinks. The pool is a good size but never properly cleaned it needs a good scrubbing and some chlorine. NEVER!! Book your trips with the tui rep you get no aftercare at all, we got left on a hard shoulder for 45 minutes with no water with people making gun threats with their fingers and all he offered was half our money back he refused to help us complain or talk to his manager over all he was rude aggressive and clearly on the take, the hotel have trip advisors all over the place cheaper and more help! The beach is beautiful but the sea was murky but staff worked hard cleaning seaweed ect. Service was good but the bigger the tip the better it got, had a lovely holiday over all but wouldn't go back other Bahia principe's I've stayed at are miles better.

Absolutely Stunning

I simply cannot understand the bad reviews on this hotel at all. The only thing i will agree on is regarding the sea, with the complex being next to a huge river the sea is murky and is not the usual carribbean blue you would expect. However the beach itself is beaitufully maintained and well looked after. The rooms are spacious and cleaned daily with air con also available to use. The buffet was always well stocked and always a selection (although after 2 weeks it does ten to get a little boring) but they do their best to accomodate and have theme nights ot mix it up a bit. The bar and pool bar staff are friendly but it does help to learn some basic spanish just to order your drinks (dont forget this is a spanish speaking country).The entertainment is brilliant also with the theme nights for entertainment. The circus is a must see! Also through out the day they have vaious activities and entertainment. Dont miss the water aerobics with the guys they are brilliant!All in all we had a wonderful time and would definately return!

Almighty let down

Still out here! Arrived on the 15th June 2017 now Sunday the 18th. Rooms Are nice and big but very dark at night, can't see to iron properly with all the lights on, had to unplug the coffee maker to use the iron. They seem to forget that the average couple are going to have a minimum of 3 things to plug in to charge. Guess what only 1 free socket and that's in the bathroom. You've got to unplug something to charge your phone.If like me you read the reviews about thefts then you'd get the safe this cost you $4US per day payable in advance. If the safe is already locked in your room then you could be faced with the 90mins wait I had after ringing reception for someone to come, only for them not to. Tried phoning back, ignored then phoned again for phone to be put down so ended up going to reception myself. Then it was a total change, really helpful, got a bell boy to drive me back and to come and unlock the safe and he showed me how to set it.RestaurantRussian roulette on if you'll get the drink you asked for at the beginning of your meal before you finish. No organisation in the restaurant staff here there and everywhere. Most of them just blank you. So far only one stands out, his name is "Oscar" he seems to care, he's friendly remembers to bring your drinks and remembers your order the day after. This place could be so much better organised with self service drinks machines, a wine station and so on. Food wise it's not bad, fussy eaters and those with a sweet tooth are well looked after. No shortage of chips and ketchup!Lobby BarStaff here change shift at 3pm then they're in black. I've experienced better service sat down at a table using the free WiFi. They'll come take your empties and offer you more. There's a self service coffee vending machine next to a table with urns of hot coffee, hot water and hot milk. With a selection of tea bags and a selection of additions for your coffee including cinnamon sticks. The BeachIt is a white sandy beach, you get plenty of loungers with parasols but it is nothing like the carribean beach you've paid to come and see. The water is murky you can't see your hand in the water! So no chance of seeing the fish! The Beach has been certified a blue flag beach for 2017 which means it is safe to swim in the water.Last year we stayed in Puerto Plata on the Atlantic side at a Riu hotel the water there was slightly rougher but you could see your feet and all the fish which made the experience much better in our opinion.In summing up if this is the standard for service in a "Grand Bahia Principe" hotel with a 5* rating we will NEVER stay at another. Think carefully and read the good and the bad reviews before you book. The good reviews all seemed to be wedding parties though.

Front Desk Needs Training

This review is to help,hopefully the front desk. Had to write this review to help front desk become better and professional!!! I approached the front desk at 0750, for a question. I waited for about 10min, because Nieky (man) at the front desk was too busy flirting with a guest. Asking the young lady for her WhatsApp number. The whole time there was about 5 people waiting calmly to speak to someone from front desk but Nieky the man was too busy flirting with a guest. As you can see in the pic I posted this is the lady and the front desk personal (Nieky) . Management please train your front desk personal to save the flirting outside of work and address people's questions regards to the hotel.
