Firstly, a review is objective because of the reviewer's tastes and demographic. Therefore, a few relevant points about me: 1) Live in Britain (Isle of Man). 2) mid 40's. 3) middle to low income by western standards (previous financial career was mid to high income). 4) Occupation - Joiner/cabinetmaker. Self employed. 5) Good education (public school and university). 6) relatively... More

I travelled with my daughter (12)and friends with daughter (15) and cannot say enough about the animation, restaurant & bar staff when it came to the kids. More often times than not, kids are overlooked, served last or purely ignored when it comes to service. This was not the case whatsoever here. So, if your're travelling with kids I'd give... More

We talked with several couples while their and they love going back there and they prefer the Gran Bahia chains. Many this was their first... More

We were transported from the airport by minibus and all 5 couples on board had read the dubious reports about this hotel. However, I can state that contrary to these it is spotlessly clean, the grounds are beautiful, and the staff very friendly and helpful. The room was huge and very well maintained. The food could become a little tedious... More

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon last June. We had a great time. The hotel grounds are very beautiful. There always seems to be things going on--sports on the beach, games, dancing, swimming. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food is good, but not amazing. The best food, actually, on the whole island, I think,... More

We travelled to GBP La Romana on 13th January for 7 nights and thought I would share my views on this property. As the title of my review states, the Bahia Principe La Romana is all fur coat and no knickers which for anyone not familiar with this saying means that on the outside its all very posh but underneath...

First off we were a group of 7, mid 20 year olds, so this is our take on the resort. Overall we were happy with the resort. The average reviews speak truth to this place. I wouldn’t say this is a five star resort though. Like you will read in most reviews the water is not crystal clear water you... More
