I was not voted off the island.

Avoid the crowds and embrace the charm at Grand Bahia Principe La Romana.  

Here’s what you can expect. A staff that pulls out all the stops to ensure every member of the family feels welcome, appreciated and satisfied. This resort has immaculate grounds, a beautiful beach and awesome suites.

The pool is huge and the swim-up bar overlooks the beach with its movie star dock, shady palapas and comfy hammocks. You can see guests surfing, snorkeling and kayaking. Others are riding bikes, playing volleyball and participating in aerobics.

The rooms are amazing with sofa beds for the kids, large marble bathrooms with big tubs and multiple massaging showerheads. The views from the balcony are tropical gardens or panoramic ocean.   The sunsets are famous at Grand Bahia Principe La Romana.

You know off-site excursions must be fabulous if they can tempt you to leave the lap of luxury.   After all there is a disco for the adults and a mini-disco for the kids. Gourmet meals, an on-site golf course and a Spa with amazing body treatments, facials and massages are just some of your choices.

So what are some of the reasons guests are willing to pay a little more to add to their memories?

This is where you are treated to a BBQ lunch on the white sand beach surrounded by turquoise water.

For 3 hours couples can be alone, play volleyball and even catch a Merengue dance lesson. Remember this is an island that has appeared in dozens of films and ads. Then it’s a return ride via catamaran with unlimited drinks and snacks.

You can choose 4×4 Dune Buggy outings, cultural tours and more. There is even an excursion where you pilot a rapid 2-seater speedboat to a platform floating over a coral reef.

You can share the adventure of snorkeling and SNUBA (a cross between Scuba and snorkeling) with friends when you return to Grand Bahia Principe La Romana.

Yep, I’m an excursion Survivor.

I was never voted off Soana Island.
