"Go elsewhere in Dominican Republic"
As far as all-inclusive resorts go, this one was quite reasonable. The major problem was the beach. Dominican Republic is famous for white beaches with transparent water. There was none of this here. Located near a river mouth, the water was brown and muddy, and the sea bottom covered with algae. There were algae on the beach as well, which was constantly raked by personal to remove them, but only within the perimeters of the resort. Outside of its perimeters a massive housing construction project was ongoing, only a line of palm trees was left in some parts and at the end of the (not very large) beach on each side construction debris had been dumped. The nearest attractive beach was a 45 minute and 80-dollar taxi ride away, no options for going by public transport, so we ended up spending the holiday at the swimming pool. Expedia misleadingly advertise this as Punta Cana, as actually it is located in a different region 100km away from Punta Cana, and closer to the capital Santo Domingo. Major disappointment. Otherwise, the rooms were comfortable and large, the swimming pool quite nice, but the food was mediocre and the included drinks quite bad.

The buffet is excellent. Congratulations for the two Chefs: Jose is the name of both of them!!!! excelent. The quality of food is ovearall for the price of the hotel. Housekeeping very bad, the first day the arrive to clean our room at 2h30 pm when we left the room at 9h00 am. Just the time that you want to take a nap. The rest was excellent....

"Okay"
The buffet food is pretty bad, it doesn't taste good and hot food is never hot. Also a lot of food gets resused for maybe several days and you can tell that it tastes old. Room has a scratchy comforter and the mattress isn't very comfortable. Ocean isn't the nice kind of blue and has pathetic waves. There are two cats roaming around the whole place and we saw one pounce on a bird and eat it. Pool is the only good thing about this place and the drinks are alright

"Very Nice Resort with a great pool."
The hotel was excellent. The grounds were very well kept. The pool was huge and very clean. They had entertainment throughout the day, so it was fun. The beach was OK but I got stung by a jelly fish...not fun. It's better to just take quick dips. The water is dark and murky, not tropical blue water. Apparently a river feeds into this part of the ocean. Overall this is a great resort. If you like pools then you will love this pool. The Buffet is better than the theme restaurants without the hassle and the staff was very good. They served with a smile and were always attentive.

first things first awesome people(dominicans) very friendly!!!I book two rooms my friends room was booked double they were french couple there too...we realize a few hours after unpack ,in my room the ac wasnt working it was a sauna literally, well after a few trips to the lobby and many calls(we chek in around 3pm), at midnight we were moved to another room, both my friend and I.Next morning we spoke to the manager assistand about all the inconvenients from the day before and we were moved to the very next hotel a luxury resort all inclusive adult only..from that very moment everything change for better so please I you have the extra money pay for the luxury resort the regular one will be ok but the luxury its way better and you will have awesome vacations and you wont have to be calling the lobby to remind them about your broken ac unit or complaining because somebody else have keys from your room and blame it to a system failure...plus the bridge in the beach it way smaller than it looks in the pics and the water in the beach it never clear thanks to a river near by and take the tours those are one of the best things!!!

"Never again"
I am a 40 years old male, went there with my girlfriend for the first time to this resort. Was very dissapointed with the beach, the food, the bathroom in a room had a leak. The beach was just like in NY , dirty dark water, but it was warm. Same dry food everyday. Had a reservation in one of their restaurants, came about 20 min late, they refused to let us in, even know that the restaurant was half empty. The pool was nice. I guess for the price I should not complain, but if I knew all these things before, for sure I would pay a little more and go to another resort.

At the first 24 hours we had to many complains to write, we were 9 people and we decided to change the hotel, for example: the next day we went to have breakfast and they didn't have Orange Juice, I ask them about and they said you want Orange juice today? and said what??? it's a special day at this hotel for an orange juice??? my wife ask for coffee and the server look at her like mad, and that was it we decide to change the hotel they move us to Bougainville and that one was much better.

"Very nice hotel and friendly staff"
This hotel is very nice and the staff is very friendly and tries their best to make you feel warm. We spent 4 days/3 nights and we were pleased all the time. The food in the buffet restaurant is good, nothing spectacular but the service is nice. The best restaurants are the ones that needs reservations, we ate at El Pescador and Le Gourmet. The best one is Le Gourmet, the food there was spectacular. The beach is nice, 4 stars. The water is calm and clean. The only thing is that in the first day the shore was full of seaweeds but 5 o 6 steps in the beach they disappeared. Luckily the next day the hotel staff cleaned it and everything was great. This is an excellent hotel for families and also to have a good rest. We enjoyed it a lot. This was our second experience in a Bahia Principe resort in the Dominican Republic and we are very happy with the service and options they offered us. Thanks for the good memories.

I cannot speak Spanish but I try and they appreciated that. Everyone was wonderful. I was happy with the food selections, the drinks, the coffee was delicious. I really enjoyed myself. I got two massages at the Spa (aaahhhhh). I recommend you take the Isla Saona Tour. They treat you like you are special and who doesn't need that every once in a while.

"A disappointing stay and tour."
When going on vacation to relax in a country where the average wage is $12 a day I understand that we can't be expecting high quality service, but they should be better than poor quality. There were times you'd wait 30 minutes or more for a drink. Not because of the massive crowds but the slow service and bartenders and servers skipping over you because you may have a kid with you. I once waited 45 minutes for a drink and ended up leaving as I think the serving lady forgot our order and never came around again to check on the tables. I also don't think she understood English enough when all I ordered was two margaritas. The overall hotel is okay. The pool was nice and clean as were the rooms. The beach was nice but not enough chairs for people to go to the beach to have fun. The entertainment is a joke, they keep announcing the "Big Show" and of the 9 nights there was only 1 night of an actual show, the other nights they'd call guests on to stage and do dating games or newly wed or other non entertaining gimmick shows. They never really entertained except for one night a Michael Jackson show, that was actually okay. Otherwise the Karaoke was probably the next best thing. Food quality was very poor. The best things were the beach feats on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and the breakfast. The fruit was not even fresh. We went to a seafood restaurant and the one thing that was really seafood they wanted you to pay $30 more for. We ended up getting steak and shrimp.

"We would go again!"
We enjoyed our staying at the Grand Bahia Principe La Romana very much. The staff was very eager to please and worked very hard to do so. The grounds were immaculately groomed and the entire property was spotless. It is the nicest resort we have ever experienced. The dining was fabulous and the food excellent! A few tips for the traveler- make sure you book your transportation to the resort and back to the airport when you book your stay. They do not offer a shuttle. Failure to do so will result in very high transportation fees. Also, bring a paper copy of your booking confirmation. You will need this when you get to the airport for your transportation. Unless you know Spanish and are experienced in Dominican travel do not rent a car and drive around the country. It is quite dangerous. Just stay at the resort, which is very safe and enjoy the excursions they offer. Finally, don't drink the tap water in your room. The locals told us it is not good to drink. Keep in mind LA Romana is about an hour and a half from the Puna Conta airport so try to fly in to LA Romana.

"Great vacation resort!"
For a couple who is looking to sit on the beach, eat good food and enjoy the sun; this is your resort. For couples who are over 30 years old this is a great resort. It is off the beaten path and not a party scene. It is a very long drive to the airport of punta canta so if you choose this resort fly only into La Romana. For any tours you will be traveling a great distance. The tour of Santi Domingo from La Romana there were not beverages or snack served on the tour which was a full 8 hour day. There was a lunch at a restaurant but it was not the best of food. This tour is lacking. The beach at the hotel was amazing and the workers at the hotel were great especially, Socrates from the lobby bar...he was amazing. The buffet was amazing as well. Good food at resturants but not 5 star. The hotel is extremely clean and quiet. It is a very beautiful place to stay.

This hotel grounds was beautiful. So many beautiful trees and flowers. Loved the swim up bar at the pool! The staff was very friendly and many of them spoke English. Lots of fun activities during the day. However, the nighttime entertainment was pretty dull. Food was good- lots of choices but nothing amazing. Our room was comfortable and clean. Be aware: The hotel is an hour and a half cab drive from Punta Cana airport!!!!! Nowhere on their website does The resort let you know there because I think it would deter travelers from staying there. It cost us hundred and $150 cash to take a taxi from the airport to the resort-- we were certainly not prepared for that. I suggest that you get airport transfers in advance save some money.
