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

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.

Not 5 star

I've been to the Grand Bahia Principe in Punta Cana and it's much better than this hotel. Pool is a bit grubby, rooms are nice, drinks aren't great as they never have any mint so can't make a mojito WTF!?

Truthful review

Prior to going on my vacation I had read lots of reviews about this place just to get an idea of what I was getting myself into. I went in wanting to love it! But unfortunately I was disappointed. I was traveling with a group of 11 in total. The resort itself is beautiful. Upon arrival I realized that the lobby is not air conditioned and is very hot, very humid. The theater area is also no air conditioned and when there is a show it gets too hot to bare. But also upon my arrival to the hotel, only one out of the five rooms we booked were ready. So we walked around for 20-30 minutes and came back to see if they were ready, and all the rooms except mine were ready and it ended up not being ready for another 20-25 minutes. The rooms are actually very nice. The safe costs an extra $5 per day so we decided to pass and had no problems at all. But, there is no WiFi in the rooms unless you pay an extra $60 per device which was not gonna happen. Also the WiFi in the lobby is not very good either, and it is quite literally only available in the lobby, not the buffet attached, or the theater attached, just the open air lobby. On to the food now. Buffet food is what you would expect from a resort buffet pretty much. I did end up getting very sick my last day but I’m not completely sure if it was from the food. The service at the buffet was usually pretty good- my group found Bienvenido particularly helpful. I dislike the whole “you only get 3 reservations per week” thing. We didn’t even get to go to all 3 of ours because our reservation was messed up- some of us were told 7;30 while some were told 8:00- and they didn’t make any effort to get us in even though they were not full. I was very annoyed it’s like I only get 3 nice meals while I’m here on vacation and then I didn’t even get my last one. We also had a slight problem with my boyfriends steak at the Italian restaurant (he asked for medium and his steak was practically still mooing when he got it) but they gladly replaced it for him. We experienced 7 power outages during our stay- 2 one night, 1 the next and 4 the next. They have decent channels on the TV for the nights you just want to chill. The beach and the pool are nice, the vendors will bother you about braids and they’re extremely overpriced don’t fall for it!! The pool was a little dirty and there were not enough chairs for everyone. There isn’t much to do during the day. But the nightly shows are great, and the nightclub is usually fun. Locals are allowed to purchase day-passes during the weekend which I personally didn’t mind because it made the club more fun! Although I had a few problems with this resort we still had fun. I would not book here again- I might consider booking on the luxury side which looks much nicer but even then I’d be skeptic.

Great place for fun

Family oriented and fantastic service. I highly recommend. Adult area definitely is the best option. Great friendly people. Adult pool quiet and relaxing. Kids club have great service and kids love it. Girls especially.

Disappointing

Do not book this hotel if you are coming to the Dominican from anywhere but the Dominican. I can only liken it to going to London and actually staying in slough, then watching the sights of London from the M4. There is nothing wrong with slough, but it is not london - and this hotel is the same!The hotel is spotless and gardens beautiful.Restaurants - I found the service poor - I have no idea why everyone says Oscar is good / as he is only good if you tip! / food repetitiveNot enough lounges, not enough waiters - there was only one no smoking area in the lounge BUT still allowed smokers even after complaints! We have all been ill for a week after return too! this is not a 5 star hotel - at best it is a good 3 star. We have also had a couple of questions since we have left and after 3 emails and 4 phone calls, still not heard anything!!'

Ok but not great

We were disappointed when all of the couples (5 of them on our bus) except us were upgraded to the Adults only section of the resort... that section was wonderful but the regular section was over populated and the pool was dirty. The beach offered dirty water and jelly fish.The nightlife was so soNo walking distance activities We won't be back to this resort nor recommend it
