Booked through Nolitours on Skyservice from Winnipeg to Punta Cana. December 29-January 5/10. travelled with my husband and 14 year old along with another family of similiar age arriving from different Province the next day. Skyservice was on time and flight was on a 757. Lots of legroom as opposed to their Airbus fleet flown in previous years. Service was... More

I've been to the Barcelo Punta Cana for my first trip to the Carribeans last Febuary 2009. We were 7 friends from the same dance school ready to be entertained, have some fun and still have some relax time at the same time. We've been pretty satisfied overall by the resort. We had so much fun that we're returning to... More

Our first time in DR and were looking forward to experiencing the 4 star rating. We met some great people from all over the world. Great beach with soft sand and good surf. Pool and swim up bar were great. The hotel needs lots of work. As you enter the hotel you notice the broken roof, should be a sign.... More

Third trip to the Dom Rep...twice to the Grand Oasis Marien Puerto Plata and once to the Barcelo Punta Cana. First we lucked out with our room, low season so got an extra large room with two roll-in beds for the kids (5 and 3) in addition to our king, plenty of room. But regular rooms are not so big....

We just got back from Barcelo, Punta Cana and we enjoyed it. We read the reviews after we booked the trip, so my girlfriend and I were very nervous. We got a room upgrade and couldn't believe the room when we walked in. It was four floors up, overlooking the Beach and Ocean (room 3427). Our kids stayed in the... More

I was really excited to finally visit the DR. The pictures of this place were amazing. Large pools, many bars and amazing views of the beach. When we arrived, the person that greeted us at the front desk was perfectly nice but didn't seem to be happy to be there...or that we were there. Once we were taken to our... More
