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.
I just returned from a short stay at this resort. I am a firm believer that perception breeds reality in most cases. With that in mind, I will keep my comments objective in an attempt to respect the staff and the other reviewers.PROSfriendly staffManicured lawns and clean gardenLive singing in the buffet-style restaurant CONS Brown ocean/river beach water ( most guests stayed at the pool)No pool side service ( if you want a drink, you will have to go to the swim up bar)Drinks are low shelf ( you pay extra for top shelf liquor)Frozen drinks are from concentrate, no fresh fruit addedNo room serviceIn the lobby, sales persons are frequently asking for your time for various promotionsAgain, I would like to say the staff are friendly and service is always approached with a smile but personally, the cons have guaranteed me not returning. A better bet for the price is the Iberostar Haciendas.
My husband, Myself and 8 year old son along with 2 adult friends stayed at Grand Bahia La Romana Sunday 7/9-7/16. We stayed in Room 1712 which had a very nice view of pool and ocean without being noisy. We did have a issue with bugs...but we dealt with it as I'm leary of the type of bug spray other countries use after that incident with family in Virgin Islands.BEACH: The water is not crystal clear as you'd expect or as they have in Jamaica or Mexico it is more like a river green. but the staff work tirelessly at keeping it clean and scouring for seaweed all day. They have local women going up and down the beach all day asking if you want your hair braided or a massage. Sometimes asking you 2 or 3 times a day some people say yes I personally just want to relax not be asked the same question several times a day so that annoyed me. They have good beach activities "Teddy Bear" was a very good entertainer.FOOD: very good food and variety. Different theme night ie: Italian, Mexican, French and American. I suggest going to the buffet early especially on the weekends as on the weekends the place is overrun with locals who push shove and stand at french fries loading up several plates until nothing is left. This was a big turn off for us upon our arrival at lunch and started to make us regret booking here, but during the week it is not like that. Now our server OSCAR and ALEXUS at the buffet restaurant were EXCELLENT!!!! these people are the heart of your resort and you should be sure to reward them! We made sure to sit on the right side of dining room as the service on the left side left MUCH to be desired this is the same for beach buffet restaurant service is of very poor quality, but the food is good.LOBBY BAR: YANET and JESUS were wonderful!!! again these people should be rewarded for their EXCELLENT Service!! Please look for these people if you travel here you will not be disappointed with your service! YANET is such a sweet person honestly I am sad because I will really miss her and if I return to Grand Bahia I will look for her! she treated my family so kind. GOD BLESS HER!KIDS CLUB: Ana was very sweet. Our son asked and looked forward to going to the club. My son met a friend from Miami that he will be pen pals with very nice young man.SHOWS: EXCELLENT! I mean Vegas style shows. The Michael Jackson show and the Dancer Show were the best! MISC. DO NOT buy mama juana on resort. it's cheaper at the airport. when you travel you will find out what mama juana is and I just love saying it! actually all the alcohol is cheaper in the airport. Our room service was adequate. The resort is very clean. The weekends there are just too many locals with many many kids running all over the place and making the resort uncomfortable I'd suggest arriving Sunday evening or night and getting out there Sunday morning to avoid this. Decent TV channels. Disco and Snack bar very nice. Casino is a lot of fun I actually won a few bucks.
everything was just wow!!!!!!!!!!!! I was utterly amazed. The staff was so kind and nice. The all-inclusive deals are the best. you get free drinks, free food. Also, there is a beach and a pool and water sports activities all in one place!!! truly amazing experience.
Was the best holiday ever, we spend 14 nights in this beautiful hotel. The hotel, room, pools and beach side all very tidy and clean. All staff are very friendly especially the animation team. The girls are from mini disco and Rigoberto are the best! The food was brilliant, we can find everything to eat what we want. So we are recommending this hotel to everyone else.Thanks Grand Bahia Principe :)
After reading a few reviews, I was concerned about staying here. We came with a baseball tournament. However, it exceeded all expectations! The customer service was excellent (love Beronica!) , the food was great. And plenty of options! The rooms are spacious and clean, as well as comfortable. We stayed 9 days. The beach was spotless, and definitely where we hung out most days. While the water is not crystal clear as noted by others, it's still beautiful and great to swim in. The weekend brought locals to the pool so it was crowded, but weekdays were fine. Bar on beach was never crowded and easy to get the drink of the day! Now, one difficult issue- few people speak English, and we don't speak Spanish. So that was an adjustment compared to our travels to other islands. However, they did everything they could to address our needs. Definitely will be back!!
