No complaints really. Room was nice, looking out on gardens on ground floor. Room cleaning was adequate, nothing special. Service was generally good. Buffet food was not bad, just good buffet food. Good wifi. No problem getting loungers on the beach-pool was usually busy. Beach was nice, water was murky, but swimmable. Would return. Just one thing- one reviewer who was there with her boyfriend early February to the tenth of February- returned home sick with what sounded like COVID-19 symptoms. I was there February 2-6. I fell ill with the same symptoms February 8- sore throat, fatigue, headache, horrible cough as well.

My stay at Bahia principle Bougainville was nice, the butler at night was really nice quick and efficient, even though me and my friend would call every night with many requests. The entertainers were funny and made us laugh throughout our stay. What I did not like was the SPA !. The resort is top rated and should have REAL professionals that can accommodate any type of individual. Elderly, pregnant etc. I was only a few months pregnant when the person from the spa kept cutting off the receptionist from asking her if there’s any massage I may receive. The lady was rude. Instead she offered me a 99 dollar facial!!! Really !?? Why have a spa at the resort if it’s limited to the people whom it may serve. To the director of this resort, please get some nicer woman who know how to speak to customers appropriately, and actual professional woman.

In general its a very nice place, but La Romana has loud late partys and it<s located right next to it. So it was difficult to sleep. My boyfriend got sick on the 2 nd day and I followed on the 6th day. So we came back on feb the 10th really sick. I never cough so much with pain, headache, throat dryness, fever... I felt as if I had asthma, I couldn't breathe. Well I really think that its was covid-19.

My wife and I had a fantastic time at the Luxury Bouganville Hotel when we visited from 1st - 13th March. Firstly we were so lucky to have completed our holiday before the dreadful coronavirus really took a hold (there were no cases here at all when we visited and we got back safely). We were in the luxury bouganville which is set in a huge complex but is the quieter of the 2 hotels and is adults-only which we appreciated. Our junior suite was well-equipped with a lovely view of the gardens. We had a fully stocked fridge and a coffee maker. The cleaner came in daily and we had a lovely big bathroom too with double sinks. The buffet restaurant in our hotel was all that we needed. It was quiet and we had breakfast here daily. Fresh omelettes, plenty of smoked salmon, cereal, fresh fruit, coffee, pastries and much more. The staff were always so attentive. We were able to use all of the a la carte restaurants without any restrictions. We particularly liked the Akiko Japenese restaurant, the Don Pablo gourmet restaurant (the best steak i've eaten in a long time!) and the Italian restaurant. The service was a little slow in the Pescadore restaurant but the food was very good when it came out. Our smaller swimming pool was peaceful with the swim-up bar. If you wanted a more livelier atmosphere you could go to the sister hotel which could be accessed in about 5 minutes.

I visited this hotel in March 2020 for a 7 day stay. From the moment i arrived, the staff could not have been more welcoming and friendly. Their professionalism and warmth continued throughout my stay. Nothing was too much trouble and all staff went above and beyond to meet expectations. The hotel itself was spotless and so well maintained! The gardens are exquisite! My room was clean, modern and very spacious. I had a lovely garden view and a mini bar that was always well stocked! The beach was stunning and surprisingly there were lots of sunbeds to choose from! The entertainment team were great and there was a vast range of activities to choose from. The evening entertainment was also very good- particularly the fire show on the beach! There was excellent WIFI throughout the hotel/pools and beach. The food was excellent- lots of choice, variety and it was great quality! I would recommend the individual Japanese restaurant! Overall, i cannot fault this beautiful hotel and would recommend to anyone wishing to visit the Dominican Republic!
