I vizited La Romana second time, I like this place better than Punta Cana - more quite and about see better.This hotel we choose specialy for relax holiday, and we got the best service, food, beachwe lived at junior suit - very nice and big roomfood nice so much different drinks at barsduring our holidays it was tsunamy at Domenikan republicbut La Romana havn~t got any problem
We arrived at the hotel mid afternoon on August 31st via Punta Cana with Air Canada Vacation. My wife and I were warmly greeted and registered expediently by the reception staff. Our luggage was brought to our room which was an ocean view very close to the main pool. As we have been to this hotel on numerous occasion the management staff is well known to us and we had requested a specific room Since this vacation was to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The staff went out of it's way to put a welcome and anniversary banner on our door and to decorate the room. As was expected we were continuously acknowledged by the staff with a Big Smile and a Hola ! Our daily dinner reservations were handled professionally without hesitation by the wonderful Yuleida in the guest service area, my wife's breakfast eggs were cooked to perfection by Carlos and our waiters brother Ariel and Guilermo waited attentively at our table. Can't forget smiling Carlos at the Jaccuzi bar who prepared all those fancy drinks for my wife ( Hope your family is well in Puerto Plata). Smiling is quite contagious at this Hotel. Can't forget our good friend Maria, the assistant manager who just went out of her way to make our trip most enjoyable.... Finally met the manager Senior Patricio who made sure everything was OK. On our very first day of vacation sad news came that the owner of The Bahia Principe chain of hotels and of Groupo Pineo, Senior Pablo Pinero had passed away that morning. I had personally met this great man approximately 10 years ago and enjoyed an evening meal with him and his wife when the Ambar was under construction. My deepest sympathy to his family and to all of his great staff for this tremendous loss... Unfortunately because of the famous IRMA, mandatory evacuation was ordered. For safety reasons, we had to leave the island a few days earlier than anticipated. The experienced staff management personel had to prepare the hotel and advise it's guestaccordingly. This was done professionally and without chaos!....For all the time spent at this resort, it was just wonderful and we will return to what I now call MY SECOND HOME......Adios Amigos!
I booked my trip a bit late this year and originaly i was suposed to stay in the Grand principe bahia but when I arrived at the hotel I got a free upgrade and was sent to the Luxury Bahia Bouganvile. This was a very pleasant surprise, everything was lovely, very clean, we have room service twice a day, the mini bar is always restocked and also there is a complementary butler service, our butler was Carlos Tejeda, he is very attentive and very helpfull with anything we ask him, it is very refreshig to see someone so dedicated to making your stay as pleasant as posible. The hotel has a wide variety of restaurant each with a specific cuisine but they all have one thing in common, the food is absolutely delicious. As I said before the hotel is fantastic, you have all you could want and the staff here is more than happy to help you.
From arrival all staff were approachable and did their best to converse with us. Our room was a "double" and was big in size with a queen-sized bed, also having a large bathroom. The food was lovely, although clients could benefit from the dishes stating if they are vegetarian, vegan etc. The pools were nice and clean, far cleaner than on the conjoined resort, and well maintained.We would recommend the Romantic Dinner on the beach, the price stated in the guest services book is for 2 people, the menu is 7/8 courses long, any drinks, with lots of decoration leading up to the table and on the table itself. Beautiful set up, would definitely like to do this again one day, even my husband said he thought it was worth the money in the end, you have a personal butler and chef for as long as you are dining. The resort try to keep mosquitoes away from guests, spraying the paths at dawn and dusk when most prolific, however would still recommend people pack lots of spray as we took 2 cans for 2 people for 2 weeks and nearly ran out, most useful to carry at night when mosquitoes are most prolific.Two downsides we experienced were:All bars shut around 11pm, you are unable to get drinks (except 1 standard restock of your minibar (free of charge)) after this time, we do not drink a lot nor were we intending to on this holiday, however when 11pm comes its as if its bedtime and everyone heads back to their rooms, resulting in lack of night life or ambiance in late evenings. Further to this we saw the disco was not always open when specified in the information pack, resulting usually in just 1 place serving drinks, the burger shop where you can find some beer, again not always open when expected.The only other disappointment we had was the colour of the sea, please note that there is a river a mile or two down from the resorts beach and that this turns the water cloudy, I wouldn't say it was dirty however, just not clear. Be aware the resort is not near a touristy area, so if you are looking to do an array of activities it can be difficult to arrange or restrictive in selection due to location.We would recommend using the free water sports on site, you can find this at the end of the beach at the conjoined resort, they will help you on and off them and show you when necessary.We would also recommend checking the evening events board, located by the cocktail bar at the conjoined sites theatre, it is more lively there at night with bigger shows compared to the mini shows in Bougainville's foyer each evening.REALLY RECOMMEND THE ACROBATIC SHOW HELD OUTSIDE, LOCATED WHERE THE DOCTORS AND SHOPS ARE, THIS IS OPPOSITE THE CONJOINED BAHIAS LOBBY, GO A LITTLE EARLY TO GET A GOOD SEAT NEAR THE FRONT ITS WORTH THE WAIT. They set up a small market on the other side 1 night a week, prices are set high but open to friendly negotiation, you can find some pretty jewellery pieces here, spices and other knickknacks, good for gifts and keepsake mementos.Paying in pesos on resort in shops is cheaper than dollars, but be aware they don't always have change, as dollars is used more commonly, this is applicable for excursions as well, so it would have been beneficial to take a small mix of pesos (say 100-200), and rest of currency in dollars.At Bouganville there is a free selection of pillows you can choose between, and request scented oil burners free of charge as well.Free use of butler for food room service but menu is restrictive.
Had a fantastic fortnight at Luxury Bahia Bouganville, we would like to thank all the management and staff just to mention a few especially Captain Edy, and the animation team.Thank you to all the staff particularly during the day we experienced hurricane Irma their behavior's and professionalism were outstanding we we made to feel very safe. Only concern as we are sea lovers was the quality of the water. Great food and bar service, there were 3 separate pools each catering for customers specfic needs. We would definitely stay at one of the Don Pablo Collections Hotels again.
