The hotel is excellent. I visited the new part, which is the Bouganville, built in 2015, I think. Everything is new and clean tasteful. Beautiful gardens, swimming pools, spacious rooms, comfortable dining halls and restaurants, excellent varied food. What a pity that the hotel is so unsightly to the point where the river empties into the nearby sea and it...

If you're looking for lovely weather, comfy rooms, a decent beach and a nice pool, you won't be disappointed. If, however, you're hoping to eat and drink well, and have a seamless service experience, you'll be let down. The whole process involved in making dinner reservations is silly—and apart from a tiny bit of variety the quality of the a...

We had high hopes(as would anyone from Ohio traveling to DR in early March) but was less than impressed. 1st thing is we werent told that you must Pre-reserve all your dinners prior to your trip. We were however able to get reservations but with fair amount of complaining. 2. Never saw our "Butler" again. 3. Placed us in room...

Our group of two couples spent 11 days at this hotel and really enjoyed our time there. The rooms and grounds are extremely clean and well maintained. There are plenty of lounge chairs at the beach and pool. The beach is beautiful white, groomed sand. The water is not especially blue but it is very warm and inviting. The bars...

Based on the reviews, my friends and I definitely had higher expectations. The biggest disappointment was definitely the food. The guac was horrible, it didnt even taste like avocados. It tasted like watermelon juice was mixed in or something strange, God knows what. We didn't just try it once so we can't blame it on the day, we figured we...

This is truly a beautiful resort with spacious rooms, excellent food and warm and caring staff. This was our third stay at this property and we will certainly return. We have stayed at 3 other Bahia Principe properties in the DR, however La Romana remains our favorite. This is due to the location, the staff and their cuisine. Their buffet...

This hotel is beautiful. Well maintained. Staff friendly and very helpful. It's just a long way from anywhere. We stayed here in February for 2 weeks and had a great time.
