I was just there at the Palace Bavaro (a la carte question), I did however visit the the Palace Punta Cana. Have no idea what the inside of the rooms are like, and am not 100% sure some of the rooms look at the resorts to the left and right, however I would be EXTREMELY suprised if they did not (our bavaro room faced the iberostar next door). Most of the time there is a cheap "pool view" upgrade or that may possibly be what the "superior" entails, who knows. Maybe check the hotel website or email them, I'm sure someone here has their email adress. I will say though that the Palace Punta Cana was quite nice, we met people on our flight that stayed there and were very happy, but at the same time the Palace Bavaro is AMAZING. All in all its a great set of resorts, enjoy your vacation, we are actually trying to see if its possible to head back there in march.
