This hotel has less than 400 rooms but is spread out over a large area, we never felt crowded, there was always chairs available at both the pool and the beach. The sea was a little disappointing but only because there is a river emptying into the sea beside the hotel and it keeps the water from being that clear... More

Nice, clean, large rooms. We were in the 1700 block so very close to the pool. No issues with the room. Dined at all 3 restaurants, all were excellent. Buffet food was ok. Service all around was good. The animation team and the shows they put on at night was definitely the highlight of the trip for my girlfriend and... More

The basis for my poor review are: the food was unimpressive, service staff was small and overworked (one lady passed out in dinning room from work exhaustion) resulting in delays to service, management was non-existent when needed. I frequent Dom Rep-at least once per year and this is the worst place I've visited. I was born there and love to... More

My husband and I had a really great time. The personnel were all fantastic, always smiling and ready to help. Our room was very comfortable and I must say we really liked the size of the resort. There was an excellent choice of food. Food could have been warmer but that is the only complaint. I am gluten intolerant but... More

I went down with a group of 10 friends. We enjoyed the pool and ocean every day! They had five delicious restaurants to choose from all were fun and creative in their own way! During the day they had lots of fun activities my favorite was Luis on the Animation Team! Always up for Bingo Bongo, Horseshoes or a Pineapple... More

Overall we had a good holiday : ) The resort is beautiful and clean. The grounds immaculate. The staff was very friendly. However, I probably would not book a holiday at the Grand Bahia Principe La Romana again. If asked I would probably encourage others to book with the Bouganville section of the resort. Pros: -Grounds were immaculate. Very beautiful...... More

A few days before our departure date, I decided to look at the most recent reviews on the site. Horrified, I wondered how I would break the news to our group of 11. I wasn't so much worried about the normal subjective reviews regarding customer service or size of the rooms, rather I was concerned of the multiple accounts of... More

My wife and I stayed at this resort the second week in December. It was a nice resort with beautiful grounds. The pool area was very nice and kept very clean. I found the food to be average for the Dominican Republic and I always found lots to eat. Our room was very nice, clean and comfortable. I've always wanted... More

A group of 6 of us went to Grand Bahia Principe from Feb 15 2015 to Feb 22 2015. The rooms and the resort itself were beautiful. The beach was also gorgeous and very clean but not white sand and turquoise water like you often see in Punta Cana. 4 out of 6 of us were sick with food poisoning,... More
