A Disappointment

DandCTravel (Welland, Canada) on Jul 03, 2022

Our second visit to the resort and did not get the room we requested and paid for. Simple pool view, ground floor. king bed. What we got was pool view, ground floor, 2 double beds and a handicap suite. When we said NO and wanted to move they gave us a standard suite with king bed. No compensation for the extra money we had paid. We like the pool but it seems now they are making it a party scene for young people. The entertainment team encourages the ladies to shake it even when some do not want to. They just go too far. The team needs to mellow. Not everyone likes to watch these activities. Will not return!!!!

A very detailed and honest review!

mariebmost (Toronto, Canada) on Jul 03, 2022

Overall we rate the resort a 4/5. My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for 6 days. Here is a breakdown of our review. Room: We stayed in room 54019. We experienced minor issues. The telephone was broken. And there was a small leak from the washroom ceiling. The small pot light in the corner was not working. Otherwise, everything else worked fine and the rooms are spacious. The good thing is that you can’t hear people next door or the loud music coming from the lobby. Our room was located infront of the lobby. Food: We definitely enjoyed the buffet more than the a la cartes. A lot of mixed reviews about the food. But I think it comes down to your personal taste. The resort did a good job providing fresh tasting food. This was our best to worst rating for food: Jazmin dinner buffet, Los Corales, Don Pablo, Beach restaurant, El Pescador and Takara. There is only one buffet for breakfast, Las Dalias. We really enjoyed their breakfast buffet too. The food was always served hot and fresh. They always restocked the food trays. Water is safe to drink at the buffets and restaurants b/c they use filtered water from containers. They also provide bottled waters. You need to book for the a la cartes as soon as you check-in bc they fill up quickly. Beach: Like all other reviews, the beach was murky and some areas were filled with seaweed. This was something we least liked about the resort. When you first step in, it is rocky and the further you go in, you will step on seaweed b/c it is slimy. Moving further down, you don’t feel the rockiness or seaweed anymore. We didn’t swim a lot on the beach b/c there were sand fleas. We got bit everywhere. There are also lots of bees at the beach. Note: do not expect a white sandy beach with blue/clear water. If that is what you look forward to the most, then this resort is not for you. Careful walking on the beach b/c we have stepped on many thorns. Service: The staff are very friendly and attentive to your needs. Very easy to request for housekeeping. We found that most of the staff did speak limited English. The service was excellent at the restaurants, buffets, bars, etc. They work hard to maintain the beaches, pools and resort overall. You will always see them cleaning up these areas and disinfecting them. We tipped anywhere between $1-6 USD. They definitely deserve a tip! Our only issue was that some staff can be too pushy with sales (we experienced this a lot at the main lobby and the beach), however, this should be expected at any all-inclusive resorts. Weather: The weather was perfect throughout all 6 days we were there. One day, there were short bursts of rain that lasted a minute or less. This didn’t stop anyone from leaving the beach or pool. It was actually quite enjoyable! Sometimes it was cloudy and windy but it was honestly a nice break from the heat. June and July are considered the hottest months of the year. Excursions: Unfortunately, we didn’t do many excursions because there were not many to select from. Most excursions are located in Punta Cana and the resort is in La Romana. We visited Saona Island and highly recommend visiting this place. There is also Catalina Island and other adventure related tours like ATV buggies, horseback riding and ziplining. We recommend visiting Saona on a private tour. Overall review: We really enjoyed our stay. We do think that this is a 4-star hotel as opposed to a 5-star. However, it shouldn’t be viewed as negative. We do recommend this resort for couples or group of friends. It is an adults-only resort, and you have access to their sister resort, grand bahia principe la romana, which is next door. Our favourite part of the resort was the food and drinks, the service and pool areas. There was a lot of entertainment by the pool and lobby areas, which we enjoyed. If you decide to choose this resort, you won’t be disappointed!
