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.

Fun Vacation with a fee Glitches!

My husband and I got back this weekend from our trip to this resort. I hesitated on four stars instead of three so I'll breaK down the pros and cons. First let me say that we always go into a vacation with " Vacation is what you make It" attitude. The pro's first.Wonderful staff who always try to help! A big thank you to Kevin the first bellman who welcomed us and made sure we got our bags and ourselves to the correct villa. He was so friendly and remembered us when we passed in the resort. Dihaina in housekeeping kept our room very neat and well stocked with soft drinks and water. Always smiling and added hibiscus flowers to our bed one night! Joangli and Darlyn at guest services are wonderful. They were so helpful when we were having wi-fi problems. Also Oscar and Kauris in the Buffet were so friendly and outgoing and should be recognized for outstanding service. We ate one night in the Italian restaurant and Hector and Ruth were very welcoming. That leaves the pool staff: Wander, Narvis, Jovani at the bar and of course Rafael. He is so friendly,has so much energy and kept the crowd going dancing around and instructing aerobics in the pool. The resort itself is well maintained and clean. It is not a new resort so it did have some issues. The water pressure was low so it's best to take your shower early before the dinner rush. Our shower head worked sometimes and other times the hand wand was all we had. Annoying but not a deal breaker. If you need English speaking TV channels then don't get disappointed! We had NBC and the Animal planet. We needed a translator for the rest. It seems the weather effects power and TV reception. We had power outages several times but it didn't stay off for long but each time we had to rescan the TV to get channels again. Thanks to the nice maintenance guy who came to help . I wish I could remember his name too.As was mentioned in other reviews, the ocean water is not crystal clean but did not seem dirty; just murky. A lot of seaweed but we've found that at other DR resorts. The staff works all day cleaning the beach. We were not pressured to buy from beach vendors. If they asked we said no and then there was no more bother. the food was typical resort food and a lot of it. You have quite a variety and the specialty restaurants were nice. We had access to three that you must have a reservation for. Now my complaint. I do not recommend the premium wi-fi that is offered on the resort webpage. This is contracted out to Kubi wireless from the resort. I should have just used the free wifi in the lobby but thought I would purchase the plan for two devices for seven days for $69.00. My BIG mistake! Guest services tried so hard to help me and again this is not a fault of the resort itself.. My ipad would not connect to the paid wi-fi but connected fine to the free in the lobby so it was not a device problem. I called the carrier three times. The first time I was give a case number a promise of a call back in our room or on my cell within 24 hours. NOT! The second call I was on hold for 30 minutes. The last time I asked for at least a partial refund and was told a supervisor would call our room in 15 min to an hour. Two hours later we still had no call so that's being addressed directly with Kubi now. I'm sure that money is gone. My only other concern is my lack of spanish. Please take your translation book or app on your phone. This was our third trip to the Dominican Republic and the only time we've had a problem with communication. Next time we will have taken our spanish course. Next vacation back to Excellence resorts.......

Good hotel

Definitely i can recommend this hotel. You will be never bored here. The food is soo good, you can choose of spanish, italian, japanese, mexican, american also seafood and other cultures. The rooms and territory is very clean. The personal is sooo kind, everybody is smilling. Every evening somebody is entertaining you, on the day the animators ,on the evening there are shows on the arena or hotelvillage. The receptionistgirl Elizabeth is very very good person and is interested to make the customer happy. Everything what you need for a good vacation is here, even the shops have cheaper prices than the souvenirshops outside. Try out the wateractivities which are also included.I liked the sailing catamaran. If you want to have fun go to the pool.

Great Place, Great Service

This is a great resort in DR, huge pools, nice beach, the food is not to die for but is good, eat as many fruits as you can they’re delicious!! Great shows at night for adults and kids. Staff is very professional and friendly.

  • Joan S :
Great holiday

We booked our holiday with Thomson at this resort only 3 weeks before we left the UK. This was our first 'late availability' holiday and we were definitely not disappointed at all. We were there to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we're delighted to have been allocated a room in the only block directly overlooking the beach. We arrived to a banner on our door, sparkling wine and chocolates in our room - thank you to Thomson and the management of the hotel. What we liked - our room, the long beach (great for daily walks), the beautiful gardens, the weather, the Beach Club (make sure you go there and enjoy the luxurious feeling of being in a sparsely populated area of the beach), the food, particularly in the à la carte restaurants, aqua aerobics, beach football and volleyball, friendly staff, good drinks (especially Tanquaray G& Ts), the Michael Jackson show, the Circus Show and all the other events, staff clearing the sea of debris after the hurricane,bikes to ride around the resort (definitely worth the effort!) boat trip to Catalina island from the beach, etc.What we didn't like - the murky sea but we had read about this before we went - it did clear a little and it was much clearer near the beach club, the staff at the Beach Club were very unfriendly and did not make us feel welcome.We would recommend this resort wholeheartedly and hope that the planned villas and apartments do not ruin it.

Weekend issues

High influx of people every weekend .Staff are under pressure and under trained to cope with the demand.Hotel management are not bothered and are not informing Thomson of the true level of these problems.Save your money.
