My boyfriend and I needed a last minute all inclusive getaway anywhere in the Caribbean. We searched for days through multiple travel sites and for a great deal, we found the Grand Bahia Principe in La Romana, DR. Overall, it was what we needed- relaxing and on the beach. Some pros was the price (very affordable), all the staff was... More

As we continue our vacation here for the next 5 days, I have complained numerous times about our room (#1703). As we have a child, we were not eligible for an upgrade (adult only portion of resort) they had us booked for upon our arrival. They scattered to find us a room. The room they put us in has had...

Hotel/Landscape: Absolutely beautiful Beach: Very beautiful view but the water is not clear Entertainment: Day and night entertainment were performed by a group of people that work way too hard. They were there when I woke up and when I went to bed. Hardest working (and most cheerful) people I have ever met. I admire their attitude tremendously. Front desk... More

I will start off with the positive aspects of the resort, we travelled with a group of 8, all three rooms, swiming pools, beach, and restaurants were super clean. The landscapes are well maintained and they make cleanliness a priority. The food in the buffet was good but after two days its pretty much the same. Now for the downside...... More

If you are planning a Caribbean beach and water centered vacation, this is not the resort for you. Two days before leaving for vacation, I found a single review that said the water at this resort was murky and filled with seaweed. As there were many positive reviews, I dismissed it. Unfortunately the review was accurate. Before even getting knee... More

Being a Spanish speaker, I was frequently harrassed to buy something from vendors or by the vacation club/real state gig. I was terribly annoyed by their execessive persistence despite me even avoiding eye contact. Very sad for the overworked staff. They were very friendly and service oriented. The same personnel that worked until very late were already working very hard... More

I stayed in this resort with my parents and sisters, the only issue was when the check-in time come, they said that the check-in was at 3pm, and we have our room at 4:45, a lot of people complaining by the same thing. But beside that, the whole weekend was nice and cool, nice staff working. A very clean room.

Grand Bahia Principe is a beautiful hotel. It is maintained great. Rooms are nice and clean staff is great even though sometimes it seems like they are a bit overwhelmed. We were a big group so sometimes they would forget to bring us water or it would take them a long time to bring us our drinks during dinner. I... More

i took my husband here for his birthday and our arrival reception was strictly like Royalties, we felt we got more than the services we paid for, I highly recommend this resort, and definitely dining at Le Gourmet, the French restaurant is a must.
