This is our first time in the Dominican and My wife and I had a wonderful time. The staff was very friendly. Knowing some Spanish would make communication easier but many of the staff can speak multi languages.

In January, my wife and spent a glorious week at the Bahia Principe La Romana. Was it perfect? No. We had issues hot water. It was a little off putting to have a cold shower every day.
