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.
This is the 3rd Bahia Principe i've stayed in and i was completely disappointed with everything except how well the grounds and the hotel room is kept.HOTEL ROOM AND GROUNDS: THEY CHARGE YOU FOR A SAFE DEPOSIT BOX ON A DAILY BASIS!!! PARKING IS FREE BUT THEY ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR VEHICLE (its all i'll say on that ) I stayed in room 2110 which was perfect because it was close enough to the beach and pool but far enough to not hear the noise from it. i was also close to the main lobby which is where the main buffet is located and some of the a'la carte restaurants. The main lobby tends to have live entertainment at nite, theres one bar and servers do come around the tables to see if you want something to drink-- the DOWN SIDE TO THIS HOTEL--ALL OVER THIS HOTEL IS THE LACK OF REINFORCEMENT OF NONE SMOKING AREAS. THE POOL, THE LOBBY, THE BEACH PEOPLE SMOKED ALL OVER THE PLACE, LITTLE SIGNS ARE UP ON TABLES WITH NO-SMOKING BUT PEOPLE WOULD JUST SIT THERE AND DO IT AND EMPLOYEES AND MANAGERS WOULD JUST PASS BY AND NOT SAY ANYTHING. THIS I SAW WITH MY OWN EYES. At the end of my stay i brought it up to the person that was checking me out and her response was that if they say anything they will get a bad review. So i guess the health of those that do not smoke or the children who are all over the premise is not as important as to the reviews the hotel gets. She also mentioned how they were a 3STAR hotel--- another employee when i was checking in and was shocked i had to pay for the safe also reminded me they were a 3STAR hotel, i know the price was good for my stay but you would think they wouldn't really tell something like that to a customer who is potentially going to make references. I had an additional 5 guest come with me on this trip and stay at this Bahia Principe because they have always heard me talking praises about the Hotel Chain. The grounds are kept immaculate, these men and women do a great job of keeping everything clean. My cleaning ladies stocked my fridge everyday and literally scrubbed down my bathtub everyday, i was amazed and tipped them well. Please keep this in mind when you visit any resort, 2 to 3 bucks is nothing and can go a long way for the service these people provide.THE FOOD: The main buffet near the lobby has a variety of food but a lot of it seems to have been made for people with no taste buds, i mean i understand they serve a whole array of different cultures but a little bit of salt or seasoning can go a long way and some foods demand it. Whats the use of it looking good and tasting like paper. I did like the night where it was seafood night. Other than that we all stuck to what we knew we could season up atleast with salt. The desserts all over the resort are gorgeous but they all taste like nothing, bland. I have breakfast, lunch and dinner at this buffet and nothing but the staff really changed.I also tried the restaurant EL PESCADOR AND ALSO LE GOURMET, once was enough for me. the food was nothing to write home about and decided to just stick to going to the buffet by the lobby---if i was going to have the same bland food i might aswelll not have to do a reservation for it. Both restaurants serve the same menu for kids which included chicken fingers which in both places were burnt.i also tried the restaurant IL CAPRICCIO (italian) this restaurant the food wasn't bad, but what i really liked was the little buffet they had within it--- had a good variety of things and most of it actually had taste to it.I also ate at the buffet by the beach called LAS OLAS, theres an employee there called Juliana--- she was great went beyond to serve her guest. My sister inlaw lost my nieces baby bottle and the hotel stores did not have one, she actually had someone bring us one from outside the grounds, of course we paid for it but just the thought that she would try to help us and did greatly shows just how much of a great person she is.THE LIQUOR- as mentioned before this was my 3rd stay at a Bahia Principe, if its not broken why fix it....ive stayed at the one in Jamaica and in SAMANA, DOM. REPUBLIC and i've never had any problems with my drinks, but this resort might as well be serving water. Not one drink was worth the time it took the bar tender to make. A capirina tasted the same as a rum and coke, you may think im exaggerating but if youre looking to have at least one descent drink then bring your own liquor and make it yourself.I RARELY GO TO RESORT SHOWS BUT THIS TIME I DID AND I SAW THE MICHAEL JACKSON IMPERSONATOR---- I MUST SAY I WAS MORE THAN IMPRESSED BRAVO TO THAT PERFORMER HE MADE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU WERE LOOKING AT THE REAL MICHAEL AND ALSO REMINDED YOU WHY HE WAS SUCH A GREAT PERFORMER. BEACH AND POOL -- beach are is wonderful the pool area is immaculate, plenty of beach chairs on both sides.
Every July I go on my annual family/friends vacation for a whole week. This past July we decided on La Romana Bahia Principe because it was very affordable for everyone and had the main three things we look for when we search for our destination every year: -Food-Pool-NightclubThe resort itself was beautiful and aesthetically pleasing. The only issue I had was that there wasn't much to do during the day. Being that we planned to stay in an all inclusive resort, we were expecting to have day time entertainment like a DJ or maybe pool Zumba. There was just a bar, low music, and if we were lucky a volleyball to play some beach volleyball. We traveled with kids and it was very disappointing to find out that there was no sort of entertainment team. Our daily routine for this particular trip was wakeup, breakfast, pool, pool, pool, beach, pool until our fingers pruned, dinner, nightclub, bed. My family and I ended up bored to the point where we decided to leave the resort and venture out WHICH WAS NOT SOMETHING WE INTENDED TO DO. Of course we made the best of our stay, but to be brutally honest, I will not be returning.
Started our stay at the grand Bahia principe La romana a few days ago, didn’t start too well as we got there at 12:45 and was still waiting to get into our room at 4 o’clock but once we got into it it was lovely, large, tidy and good air conditioning. The pool is fantastic loads of sun beds, food is good for my partner, ok for me, I’m a vegetarian and fussy eater so a bit same old same old. The best thing is our waitress Yonilka Guerrero who is fantastic, she has not let us go without a drink, so friendly and attentive, an absolute treasure. Keep hold of this girl, she’s worth her weight in gold.
Stayed at the Bahia Principe La Romana from January 4-11, 2018. The property is just the right size - there was never any line ups or large crowds. The food was excellent and the service was friendly. We were lucky to get room 2709. We had an excellent view of the beach and ocean. Since it was a corner room we also had a great view of the pool! The specialty restaurants were very good and the bars were well stocked. This is a great place to go to unwind and enjoy the sun! Ella and Gloria were amazing in the gold lounge!
It was our second vacation in this hotel. We were there in 2015 and because we were very satisfied, we did it again and stayed 11 days here in January 2018.Positive: Hotel is still very clean, Food is very delicious, Beach is absolutely nice and silent. Staff is very polite.Negative: Animation people were much more „aggressive“ in convincing people to be part of the show. The trip to „El Limon and the Bacardi island“ booked via Bahia Principe Tours was horrible. Horse Abuse, Mass tourism and dangerous when it rained before. Absolutely not comparable to the trip we did 2 years ago to Saona. Stay away from that trip. The staff at the bar and the lobby seemed to be unable to cope with the guest wishes. Compared to 2015 it took more than 45 minutes to order a drink or to get one. Conclusion: It was okay but not more than that. Maybe the glamour is gone, we‘ve had the first time. I think we will try another resort next time when we visit the Dominican Republic again.
