Just returned from fourth visit to Lux Bouganville. Just when you think it couldn’t be better... The Don Pablo restaurant opened since our last visit and it was our favourite. Some of the people who made our stay.. Fausto and Freddy the butlers who saw that everything went smoothly and looked after reservations. In the dinning rooms Emerline William David Clemente Jose to name a few . Carlos at the beach bar kept our glasses full. The general manager Patricio and Franklin in food kept this place running well. Hope to see you again. Dave and Jackie
Had such a great time at this hotel. Love the feel of the location how it isn’t in the popular places of rep dom. I have been many times to this country and this is by far the best time. The staff were great! Juliana Ortiz in the lobby was sooo helpful anytime I needed her. Especially with the wifi. One day I had trouble getting a beach towel and she went above and beyond to get me one. The food was good, the beach could be better but the pool def made up for that. Loved this place! I will def be back!
We vacationed at the Luxury Bahia Principe Bouganville Don Pablo during the first week of January.The resort is the adult section of the much larger Grand Bahia Principe resort.The rooms are located within seven blocks of which blocks 50, 51,52 and 53 are located close to or in proximity to the main activities pool while blocks 54,55 and 57 are situated close to or in proximity to the quiet pool (no typo, there isn't a block 56). Unless you are late to bed, I would avoid block 52 with rooms facing the Tamarindo lobby bar as entertainment takes place there at night.From what I have seen, all rooms appear identical. The rooms are spacious and bright. One negative was we could not regulate the temperature. It appears that our room was centrally air conditioned and the only way to control the flow was by varying the fan speed.As previous posts have noted, the beach water is cloudy and far from the pristine caribbean turquoise waters. On the other hand, the beach is sandy and quite nice. We took a 10 minute walk to the left along the beach to a beach bar clubhouse and found the water to be somewhat clearer and the view to be much better. The beach bar club house is not part of the all inclusive package but the beach is public.There are more than adequate palapa huts on the beach and we had no problem finding one at whatever time of day. The beach is located directly opposite from the main activities pool so any thought of quiet relaxation with lood music and entertainment could be an issue for some.Aside from the buffet, there are 6 à la carte restaurants, 3 within the adult section with the other 3 located in the Baya Principe resort. Of these, I would qualify the Don Pablo Gourmet restaurant and the El Pescador (seafood) restaurant to be worthy of a 5 star rating. On the other hand the Il Capricciio restaurant (italian) was not worth the visit. About a quarter of the main dishes were pizzas which seemed the same as those served at the lunch buffet. All à la carte restaurants must be reserved in advance and it would be prudent to make all reservations as soon as possible upon arrival.The house wines are just average and there is only one selection for each red, white or rosé. On the other hand, the restaurants have a good wine list at reasonable prices starting at $18 with some very decent wines in the $30 range.As with some other resorts, staff employed by the resort will pester you with time share pitches. These employees hang out between the lobby and the room areas. Management has however brought this disagreable practise to a new level by having its representatives calling your room with the usual "come by and pick up your present" scheme. Management should be ashamed!Smoking is prevalent in this resort, be it along or in the pools, the beach area and in designated open spaces within the lobby. As a non-smoker, I would have preferred designated non-smoking areasThe wifi is good and I found no reason to purchase the premium wifi package. For some reason you have to go through the process of logging in every 24 hours.Lastly, I would be remiss not to mention that the grounds and landscaping are exceptionally nice . Also the ratio staff to client is very good. ,
An aesthetically pleasing, relaxing complex with excellent amenities - however there are a few drawbacks - most of which could easily be remedied.Excellent rooms and service which did unfortunately slack off over the last 24 hours of a two week stay - for party of 12 of us.Food selection and quality is very good with The Don Pablo restaurant fillet steaks being exceptional.El Pescador restaurant was a bit of a let down with luke warm lobster (which was actually Craw / Cray) accompanied with cold rice - several others on table not too impressed with their lamb dishes either.Staff really friendly in particular Eddy, Emily in the poolside buffet.Entertainment very good in adjoining Bahia hotel which caters for children too particularly the Michael Jackson dancers who were excellent - there is one lady in the luxury side who unfortunately has a licence to murder good music.The pools were very highly chlorinated and caused most of us eye irritation.The beach is not great but well maintained, clean and insecticided at night - by day there are hoarders of hornet buzzing around tree stumps at low level and the overall distant view of a gas / oil ship terminal not too appeasing.The sea is murky due to a nearby river outlet and if it’s blue seas you want the Bahia Ambar complex may be the one for you.We used one of the Hobbie cat yachts and was a little worried and thought that one of the brackets holding the sheets (ropes) and pulleys had snapped - fortunately I managed to tie the bracket down as a temporary measure with a piece of thin rope and get ashore.It was concerning on checking video footage that the bracket was already snapped and tied down to the back of the boat with a piece of string.Had it snapped when around the far side of the island where the seas were quite rough it could have been another matter - I showed the yacht attendant what had happened Isnapped bracket) and within ten minutes the next passengers were onboard with another string repair!The real downside of this complex is the very poor internet services (particularly if like us you need to work / check in on things whilst away) and the inability of any the staff to react to such problems.There is not one English / US speaking TV or news channel available so don’t expect to know what’s going on with the rest of the world.Overall I think I would recommend the Ambar complex instead.
Just returned from a week at this hotel, it was amazing. There are two Bahias next door to each other, we chose to stay at Don Pablo which is the adults only hotel. It is gorgeous the rooms are beautiful, big, bright, ours overlooked the beautifully kept gardens our room was 53205, very quiet and close to everything. The food was wonderful, special mention to waiter Roberto who worked in the buffet beside the pool and Don Pable, buffet has a wonderful selection of meat, seafood and fish, also great salads, fruit, bread etc etc etc. We ate at three specialty resturants, Don Pablo, Italian and Japenese the service was good, food very good. Specion mention to Xavier he was our butler ( different levels of butler we had the service included in the price) he was so pleasant and helpful. Our room was always made up promptly and always spotlessly clean.My only criticism which is not the fault of hotel,is that the hotel is quite isolated and taxis to Romana are expensive, we did half day tour to Santa Domingo and it was a great experience. Also FYI if you want to buy coffe to bring home don't buy it at duty free it is USA $4 more more expensive than hotel and $6 more than Santa Domingo. In fact most things at the airport are overpriced!
