We Stayed in a Jr. Bungalow Suite
We did splurge for the Platinum services but do not feel as though we lacked any service or amenities.
Grounds were very pretty and clean
Food: big variety but not great. Actually as good as any food that I get when I'm out of the US. (I think that I have a very 'domestic pallet'). The burgers and fries down at McPrincess are good. If you book snorkeling excursion you can get bread from the restaurants to feed the fish with. - That was really cool.
Room: Clean, modern (had I-phone docking station and flat screen TV. We enjoyed the Jacuzzi tub
Vacation Guide - VIP was our vacation guide company. Our Rep was informative and did not push us to book any excursions.
Bed: Hard! I like a firm mattress but wow! We stayed in room 812 and our mattress was possibly made of concrete. Our friends in 842 had the same complaint.
Mini Bar: It comes with 2 water, 4 soda and 2 beer limit per day. I could have used more beer.
Excursion sales: staff roam the lobby area and beach: Some excursion sales people and
nightly vendors set up in the courtyard and are really pushy - reminds you of vendors on the streets in many 3rd world towns.
The Market: There is a market in the common area/lobby area. Do not forget dental floss!! They have a strange pricing strategy. Some things like a t-shirt are reasonably priced to expensive. Other things like dental floss are grossly overpriced. They were asking $9 for a small roll.
My wife wanted me to suggest the Bavaro Princess. It is a house drink there that she fell in love with.
Dining: We were here 6/27-7/3 and this is the slow season. That being said, on any given night 2 or 3 of the 5 restauraunts will be open and you will probably have to wait for a table. Know this going in because I heard several patrons complaining about having to wait. The buffet up front is open every night.
The grounds are absolutely huge. Its not hard to get a lay of the land and there is a trolley service. If you are an early riser though you may find yourself walking to breakfast and for me staying in building 81 its about an 8 minute walk. Just know that if you aren't a fan of footin' it.
I hope this helps..
