Grand Bahia Principe La Romana
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Our OpinionA 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.
Spent 3 nights with girlfriend. Easy to get to, just off of the highway from Punta Cana to Santo Domingo. 100 kilometers from PUJ. I rented a car and the drive was an enjoyable one, great scenery. Some slow vehicles and some very fast, if you are a decent driver and pay attention to what is ahead of you AND behind you, you will have no problems. All 4 lane highway to front gate of property. There are 3 toll booths, so having Dominican pesos will help. 2 were 100 DR and one 60 DR, so about $6 total.Having a car made it easy to visit nearby sites. Cuevas de Maravillas is only a couple of miles from the hotel, to the east on the highway. Also drove to Altos de Chavon, really cool and worth the drive.This is a secluded area, gates to enter and no nearby hotels. Gated area has plazas and shops. Great for a romantic getaway. Pool and food are great. No complaints on service. This is a large hotel, many buildings, I was in Building 23, no ocean view, just pool. Very few buildings offer a full ocean view. Book building 27 if you can, all rooms directly face the ocean and it is close to the pool. Saturday night entertainment was very professional, wide variety of dances, latin and Taino Indian. Cabanas are offered on the beach and around the pool at no additional charge. Sea water is murky as Rio Soco is just to the west of the resort.Not great for snorkeling or swimming, not many people in the water.Beach is very good for walking and very private. Overall a relaxing getaway, umbrellas are provided in your room for the occasional downpour. I always take an umbrella and poncho to the DR.
Sometimes cheaper is not always better. We booked Wednesday to Sunday and when we checked in we were not told that reservations for the restaurants were only taken between 8-12. The following day we tried after noon and were only then when reservations were taken. The following day we were at the desk at 8:05am and were told all restaurants were full, not only for that day, but for the rest of our stay there all 3 days. After i pushed, the girl was able to get us into the fish house that night only. I talked to management after that and they were miraculously able to find us another reservation for the following night. That evening when we went to the fish house, the place was totally EMPTY. We were the only table in the place, and only 1 showed up by the time we finished. The following night we went to the Italian restaurant, where we were told nothing was available, and it too was almost completely empty. The food was sub par at best, but the wine was ok.Luck for us we had a car and didn't have to be subjected to the buffet every night.Dining in La Romana was excellent!
If your looking for a MURKY Caribbean due to a nearby river running into the sea, nine POWER CUTS in eight days and TEPID hot water at the very best then this hotel might suit you. The food, service and cleanliness of rooms and grounds were well suited to its star rating but the previously mentioned problems (apart from the murky sea which should be clearly advertised) must reduce its star rating to 3+ until the power supply and hot water system are totally upgraded.
We had a great time right from the quality of the hotel to the staff. Oscar at the buffet was always there and anxious to help us and kept us well taken care of. All of the staff in the a la carte restaurants were awesome and so good to us. Too many names to mention. The cleaning staff for the rooms were always quick to clean when we were out of the room with turn down service and another clean up, fresh towels all the time. Food was fabulous. Could not complain about one single meal. The whole trip was perfect. I recommend this hotel to anyone as it was one of the best.
Had a wonderful time at this resort. A few small glitches, but overall a great stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Immediate service if you need something.Erasmo Felix Lopez took care of my special needs and was very helpful with any request I had of him.The bartenders at the lobby bar were very entertaining, especially Rene. Waitress service at the bars was excellent.Pool bartenders take good care of their customers and really work hard all day running up and down the steps.The pool is very large and there are lots of lounge chairs.The beach is very large and clean. No seaweed or debris on it at all. Water is not clear because of a near by river keeps it stirred up.We ate most of our meals at the buffet. Very large selection of foods. The specialty restaurants are excellent, especially the Brazilian.Rooms are large and clean.Maid service keeps them clean and well stocked.Beer,water and soda refilled everyday.We traveled the end of November and had some rain everyday. It only lasted a few minutes usually. One day we had an all afternoon rain.
