4.5 of 5 stars based on 1 vote

Ratings of 4 star Caribbean resorts we have visited

  • 1. ClubHotel Riu Merengue
    ClubHotel Riu Merengue, Puerto Plata, Puerto Plata Province
    Show Prices
    Avg price: $154

    Best Buffet we've experienced in the Carribbean. Large beach and outgoing staff. Comfortable rooms, beautiful grounds. We've just returned from our second visit to the Merengue (2012). If anything the service has improved.

  • 2. Sirenis Playa Turquesa
    Hotel Riu Playa Turquesa, Holguin, Holguin Province

    Great beach, beautiful setting, lots of activities. Clean large rooms. Felt very safe. Fantastic drinks and decent food. I understand this resort is changing hands again. So I've dropped it an notch for that reason. We don't know what it will be like with new management.

  • 3. VH Gran Ventana Beach Resort
    VH Gran Ventana Beach Resort, Puerto Plata, Puerto Plata Province
    Show Prices
    Avg price: $212

    Great Resort. Superior food for a 4 star. Small and easy to get around. Nice beach. This resort is third on our list because of the hasseling of the beach vendors and the time share sellers - From other resorts - No one at the Gran Ventana will attempt to sell you time shares but as soon as you walk up the beach past other resorts they will hassel you.

  • 4. Sirenis Tropical Suites
    Sirenis Punta Cana Resort Casino & Aquagames, Punta Cana, La Altagracia Province
    Show Prices
    Avg price: $256

    This is a great resort with the most beautiful lobby we've seen in the Dominican. Great drinks and personable staff. You can walk for miles in any direction on the beach. The best entertainment we have seen on any resort.

  • 5. Bahia Principe San Juan
    Grand Bahia Principe San Juan, Rio San Juan, Maria Trinidad Sanchez Province
    Show Prices
    Avg price: $265

    Very attractive resort, beautiful grounds. Worst food we have experienced in our travels. No lobby bars. Beach is good for swimming no seaweed but not very attractive.
