So much fun.

We had a blast. Roberto at the front desk top notch. If we needed anything he was our go to. Need a couple of blankets easy peasy. Had to get our safe fixed as we couldn't get into it. No problem. They were there for us. Minor inconvenience. Entertainment around the pool was so good Roxanne and Sexy Jaun made our stay memorable. We played all the games and thry never forget our name. I can't say enough about these two. The other entertainers were very good also. There was Micky Mouse,Versace & Nutella . Food was very good and plentiful. Brazil very tasty. Japanese delicious ??. Don Pablo small portions but you won't leave hungry. Love it . The maids keep our rooms clean, grounds crew very friendly. There was also acrobatics at the pool one night . So cool. I can't say anything negative about this resort. Adult only but the kid zone was right next door. I will be going again.

So glad I didn't put to much stock into the negative reviews

After I booked, I spent some time reading countless reviews and some of them made me question why the heck did I make this reservation. I read that the rooms were filled with mosquitos so I brought one of the plug in sticky attractor light deals that attract and collect the mosquitos. I left that thing plugged in for 4 days and caught a gnat so I decided I could use the outlet for a phone charger. I did see 2 mosquitos in my room he day of check in but none after that. I brought those bug repellent wipes and didn't even use one her entire week.... I did get 3 mosquito bites outside though. There did seem to be fewer outlets in the room than needed for this electronic age but we made due. I also read that the ocean was filled with jellyfish. I didn't personally get in the ocean but saw many people out in the water and none complained of any jellyfish, I even mentioned it to a woman I met and she said she had been in the water all day and not a single one was spotted. The water was a bit murky due to the river that spills in to the ocean up the way but it didn't seem to bother those that swam in it. I read that the staff catered to those that spoke Spanish. I know how to say Beer, Bathroom and Trash... that's all I know in Spanish and the staff were still very pleasant... (I didn't call them any of the 3 words I know so maybe that's why they were nice.. lol). The food really exceeded my expectations. They have a selection in the buffet that will feed the pickiest of eaters. The first night we were there, the buffet had prime rib at the carving station... I knew I hit the jackpot. Every night featured a different cuisine but if that cuisine was not your thing, there were still so many things to choose from. As far as the Ala Carte restaurants, The Mediterranean was by far my favorite. I had the most beautiful piece of tenderloin (med-rare). The pool was not packed, there were plenty of pool loungers and you didn't have to get up at 5am to put your towel on one of them like I have at another resort in Punta Cana. The pool entertainment crew was really good at keeping the fun going with the games and entertainment.. We checked out the show every night, there is something there for everyone. The minuses (if you even call them that). I wish there were better lighting in the rooms. If you are one to apply makeup, the lighting is not in favor of that, you may end up looking like a clown. There were not many outlets as mentioned before so maybe bring a charging cube with a couple ports in it. The bed was very very firm... I am a Princess and the Pea kind of gal but my husband loved the firmness of the bed so I'm not sure if this belongs in the minus category. All in all, I loved this place and will definitely be back. The past 2 years I went to Punta Cana and was really not planning to come back to the DR based on those 2 years... this place is the best kept secret and I am so glad I gave it another shot. I say you should not believe all the negative things and form your own opinion and go in with an open mind.... some people are just not able to be pleased.

First time at DR

Dstaxkz D on Jan 31, 2024

Super friendly and accommodating...the spa was fabulous!!Food was very good with plenty of choices...true 24 hour food available. The beach wasn't great and the bed was a little too hard for our taste but will absolutely go back...totally worth it!

AWESOME Vacation!!!!!

Lisa V (Yarmouth, Canada) on Jan 30, 2024

First, I'm one of those people who reads all the reviews and compares several resorts before choosing. I saw a mix of pros and cons with this resort, but I'm so happy we chose this one!! For those who had negative reviews, I don't know why! Your vacation is what you make of it!! We were with another couple and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and everything about it!! Check-in was easy peasy!! We had to wait a bit for our room but that's ok. We were early so we just got a drink and sat in the beautiful lobby til it was ready. Room was clean and spacious! Bed was super comfortable, pillows were perfect and the bathroom was clean. Lots of storage for clothes as well. What more do you need? :) We spent a lot of time a the pool bar. Luis was our favourite bartender! Not only was he super friendly, but he could take care of 3 or 4 people at a time and get everyone's drinks right every single time! It was cool that he remembered what we wanted without having to tell him. He saw us coming and came over right away and got our Yetis. The beach was very nice! Soft sand to walk in, however the water wasn't the greatest. It was murky most likely from the river nearby that flows into the Caribbean. It didn't stop us from going in but were sad when it wasn't crystal clear blue water. It is what it is. Food! OMG where to begin!! Definitely no shortage of food! We ate very well!! We dined at all 3 a la cartes. The Italian was so good!!! I had heard that it wasn't very good so I was nervous. Nope! No worries at all! All of us really enjoyed our meals, including the appetizers and desserts! The French restaurant was even better than the Italian! OMG so yummy!!! My absolute favourite! The Mediterranean was ok. Nothing on them, it was me. I like seafood, but the fish and seafood stew just didn't do it for me. Thankfully, the appetizer, soup and dessert made up for it. Let's not forget the buffet!! Everything we tried was top notch!! So many wonderful items to choose from and so many tastes! And desserts! WOW!! Ate way too many of those! LOL Overall, we were very happy with our resort choice. Sure it may be a long drive from Punta Cana airport, but it is definitely worth the drive!! We will be back!!

Great Stay!

Danielle M on Jan 30, 2024

Overall great ten days at Bahia principe La Romana. The buffet had lots of selection and tasted great, also great service in the resturants. Pool, beach and lobby areas were very clean and always had great entertainment. Mini Po (Yefrey), Evelyn, Antonio, Marcos and Franklin were great entertainment staff as well as the best DJ, Manuel (DJ Fiera). Lots of great drinks served by Luis at the pool bar and Jose and Edgar at the lobby bar. Nightly shows were for the most part very entertaining, some were a little slow! Disco wasn’t very busy at nights. Rooms need to be updated but didn’t bug us much as we don’t spend much time in our rooms! Overall, resort is small and has everything you need and so many friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely go back!
