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.

Great hotel bar a few points

Upon arrival the hotel looked great. Check in was very quick and easy and was soon on our easy to our room.Room was very clean and well equipped and had a sea view, only 62 steps to beach. The room had a connecting door which made it very noisy. I'd suggest asking for a room without this door.Had problems with safe and hairdryer but they sorted them out within the hour.Facilities are excellent.Staff are very friendly and helpful but they could do with more staff at lobby bar. Foods hit and miss but there's always something you can haveGourmet restaurant was poor the seem to forget about you and then you get everything at once. Beach was excellent very relaxed but the sea water is cloudy but not a real problem.Locals turn up at weekends which kills the relaxed atmosphere as they take over and the staff seem to forget about you to look after them. If we were in the Dominican Republic again we would stay there but it's not one you'd say I'd definitely got yo go back there

If u want a beach holiday don't stay here

Hi all , just arrived home after 11 nights at this resort. The resort is ok clean rooms entertainment is good but a big thumbs down for the beach i have cleaner looking sea at home, there was never anyone using the beach. I thought going to the Dominican I would see beautiful blue sea but as a nearby river flows directly into the beach, I had to go on a day trip to an island to see the beautiful carabian sea, & a little attention to detail in the restaurant is needed too, much of the food is cold. We stayed in same resort in Mexico in Jan & it was great & the beach was always packed. So if you want a holiday to relax around the pool & happy to stay on the resort everyday as there are no towns near!! unless you want to spend 75 USD to get there then try it out. But I would not go back there. On the up I met great friends & made the best of what was there.

A Wonderful Holiday

Booked into the Bahia Principe La Romana for a 2 week holiday.From the airport the coach took 2 hours to get to the hotel with just one drop off before ours, but we knew this beforehand.The hotel and grounds are very impressive and there are plenty of staff around for assistance.Our room was spacious with plenty of cupboard space.Lovely food in the dining room with plenty of choice.Large swimming pool close to the beach but found it very noisy and couldn't get away from it even trying the beds near the childrens pool..We were invited to look around the Luxury side- adults only- which was next door- so having seen what the upgrade would give us we decided to change.|The pool was quieter with the music at a reasonable level but there was also another pool at the other end of the hotel where no music was played at all.The sunbeds were much comfier too.We had our own butler, wifi at all times, 2 double beds , seperate toilet and shower and jacuzzi bath.We enjoyed this quieter part of The Bahia and found all facilities to be spotless- aways someone cleaning up.Having stayed at Bahia hotels before we have always found their standards to be very high and are achieving what the holidaymaker is looking for.The sea is not clear but again we knew about this beforehand and it didn't stop us going in for a swim. the beach is very picturesque and ideal for having a nice walk.There is not much outside the hotel as it is quite a distance to most tourist attractions but is perfect for a quiet lazy holiday.All in all we found this to be one of our best holidays and wouldn't hesitate to go back.

The resort was everything we had hoped for and then some. The staff was amazing, they were so friendly and outgoing they made us feel at home. Nerizon, Mantaraya, Teddy Bear, and Cesar went above and beyond to help us have fun. They had several activities that they encouraged us to participate in, and we had a blast. The rooms were gorgeous, clean, and very well stocked everyday. The food was great, the buffet got a little old by the end of the trip but all the food was very very good. The restaurant foods were out of this world. The steakhouse was the best, we also went to the french and seafood restaurants which were also very good. The bartenders were very friendly and did a great job serving all the people at the bar. Kelvis was one of the best bartenders I have ever had. He remembered our drink orders by the end of the week and brought us refills before we even asked. Jesus and Kelvis kept us laughing all night. Overall, I highly recommend this resort and plan to return in the future!

Nope, nope and never!

Arrived for a hopefully fun girls trip for 5 days only to find out that this "5 star" hotel was anything but. Upon opening the doors to our room, we found water that did not drain, a cockroach scurrying around, flies everywhere, a phone that didn't work, a TV that didn't play sound and a staff that was NOT helpful. Everyone said they were the manager and no one was accommodating to our needs. The food was so cold and the same thing every single day. You expect all inclusive only to find you are waiting for a drink for 20 minutes in the pool and eating at restaurants with a different name and same food option. Oh and our keys stopped working every 10 minutes and the "customer service rep" laughed at us and said so "what do you want?" I was shocked at his poor service - obviously I just want people to enjoy their time here and not be scammed!!! Everyone is also allowed on the resort, which is fine, until peoples' things get stolen, including a friend's IPhone. You have to pay for wifi and a safe deposit too. There are better resorts in DR which I have stayed at - don't pick this one.
