Luxury Bahia Principe Bouganville
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
This was our first time staying at an Adults Only resort. The property is stunning! Staying on the "Bouganville" side gives you access to butler services and both resorts(family side) amenities. Loved our room. Everything was impeccably clean and well maintained. King size bed was comfy (although my husband found it a little firm for his liking). Plenty of extra blankets and pillows available in the room. Fridge was kept well stocked and anything else you needed was just a call away, with concierge services close by and pretty fast. Our safe didn't work when we arrived but they were very quick to respond and replace the door. Friendly and fun staff. Food was great! Loved the Japanese a la carte and the buffets all had many choices and were well stocked. Premium alcohols from home were a welcome site (Crown Royal, Absolute, Scotches). Lots of entertainment. Circus show was AMAZING! The beach wasn't the greatest we've seen and the waters were cloudy but the pools and swim up bars more than made up for that. We did 2 excursions and saw the surrounding area. Catalina Island, where we went snorkeling and fishing etc. Full day tour was very nice and the staff keeps you entertained although there was no alcohol on the boat. The second excursion was also an all day tour on the back of an open jeep/truck to a local home, sugar cane fields, short hike through a wooded area to a beautiful water fall and lunch included. Very interesting and again excellent and entertaining staff. English is very well spoken there and it was never hard to communicate. It's a good idea to keep a fair amount of cash handy for purchases as there were occasions where we weren't expecting to want to buy things and we would have liked to. Also US dollars are widely accepted, pesos were not necessary. Go with US dollars as the exchange rate is much better here at home. Our only complaint was the very pushy sales of the Bahia Privilege Program. First it was only going to be 10mins(with the promise of gifts regardless of purchase)...then 20...max 30...and ended up being an hour and a half and when at the end we weren't interested the sales manager was visibly irritated. We left the meeting regretting wasting our time. We did get 2 30min massage coupons, which we used on our 2nd last day and were very impressed with the spa. Massages were well worth the time. Relaxing and beautiful setting. Well worth the trip!
We have been to 3 Grand Bahia Principe hotels in the Dominican Republic (Ambar in Punta Cana, El Portillo in Samana and Bouganville in La Romana) The 3 hotels are similar in quality for rooms, cleanliness, food and staff friendliness and helpfulness). All three are terrific in these regards.The difference between the 3 is the location. Regrettably, the Bouganville has the least favorable location of the 3. The hotel in located in a bay and the views and water access are less than ideal. There is a large maritime port with refineries on the right hand side extremity of the bay that spoils the idyllic views one expects when one visits the Caribbean. The El Portillo has probably one of the nicest beaches, views and bays (Screensavers!).The Bouganville staff works hard to compensate this by cleaning the shorefront regularly and maintaining the beach area spotless.Overall, the hotel is quiet (adult only), clean and the grounds are terrific. The staff is extremely friendly and made sure we had everything we need.A nice place to crash for a week with a few good books and soak up the sun.
1ST Time in the DR. Great resort, great service, excellent accommodations and food. Pools were exceptional, beach was fine, entertainment was good.We would definitely return to this location and recommend it.
