Upon arrival the hotel looked great. Check in was very quick and easy and was soon on our easy to our room. Room was very clean and well equipped and had a sea view, only 62 steps to beach. The room had a connecting door which made it very noisy. I'd suggest asking for a room without this door. Had...

Booked into the Bahia Principe La Romana for a 2 week holiday. From the airport the coach took 2 hours to get to the hotel with just one drop off before ours, but we knew this beforehand. The hotel and grounds are very impressive and there are plenty of staff around for assistance. Our room was spacious with plenty of...

The resort was everything we had hoped for and then some. The staff was amazing, they were so friendly and outgoing they made us feel at home. Nerizon, Mantaraya, Teddy Bear, and Cesar went above and beyond to help us have fun. They had several activities that they encouraged us to participate in, and we had a blast. The rooms...

Arrived for a hopefully fun girls trip for 5 days only to find out that this "5 star" hotel was anything but. Upon opening the doors to our room, we found water that did not drain, a cockroach scurrying around, flies everywhere, a phone that didn't work, a TV that didn't play sound and a staff that was NOT helpful....

This was an amazing trip! I could not have wanted it to go another way. I went with my significant other and another couple and we had an absolute blast. First we arrived a few hours before our check in time, and they gave us wristbands so we could start eating and drinking! Then we got to experience the pool...

We spent 7 days at this resort and have little to no complaints! We walked into our room and the TV was taken apart and tools were in our room and another night the AC stopped working. Both times the staff came down immediately and solved the problems. The bartenders worked very hard to wait on everyone and we hardly...

How they can give this 5 stars is beyond me. The food is cold all the time, which is very unhealthy. You pay for all inclusive but you have to wait 25 minutes on a good night to get a drink. 90 per cent of the staff look at you and treat you like dirt on their shoes (apart from...
