My husband and I got to this resort and had a relaxing stress free week. The great people who work at this resort made sure of that from the moment we stepped off the bus. We had a beautiful room overlooking the ocean and pool with palm trees just in front of our balcony! We went VIP and was worth every penny, the room was large and well kept, never had a problem with having our fridge stocked with lots of water, beer and pop. We had room service every morning and have to thank Eddie for always making it special, he was terrific! If you have any questions Hilda will always answer them with a smile. This resort has the friendliness bartenders that I have ever met. Wallie at the swimup bar, Candida at the lobby bar and Roosevelt at the beach bar (our Dominican son lol) We enjoyed them so much. The beach was beautiful with lots of palapas (never had to go early to get one) The water was a little rough until the last two days but hey that is mother natures doing. The resort is laid out well and I found the walk through the mangroves to the lobby wonderful! The lobby is large, comfy and quite relaxing. The food-we ate lunch at the beach and it was very good (they sure know how to cook chicken yum!) We went to the Crepiery once and it was very tasty. At supper we did the the Brazilian (sooo good) and VIP was allowed one of the restaurant that you pay for and we went to the La Carve and we were treated like royalty. We had the New York steak and it was to die for!!! We were there for two hours. At the buffet we found the Pasta station was delicious. the rest was the same as most resorts, there is always something for everyone. We only went to see two shows and they were okay. We would like to say hi to Denise, Carl, Brenda, John and Bill and Rose it was very nice to meet you all and enjoyed your company it was fun! Over all we had a blast and I wasn't ready to come home. It was very scenic and welcoming! The next time we go to the DR we will be going back to the Caribe Club Princess! Again the people there are wonderful and will make your vacation one to remember! We are yearly vacationers so we have alot to compare to and this resort is very high on our list. We were here from April 27th to May 4th.

Room Tip: Our room was 2207 and was close to everything with a beautiful view and at night never heard a thing...

Arrived at the C.C.Princess Punta Cana.We flew with Sunwing , no problems.We booked our trip with flight centre and upgraded for $ 80.00 each,it was well worth it. We got suites right on the beach,and we received free safe, extra dinner that would have cost $ 30.00 each,water soft drinks, and two cans of beer each day.The cleaning staff was amazing!!!!.We would ask for extra water and beer towels, and it was right there, no problem.We also got on the upgrade Premium Drinks which was Canadian Club, Gordons Gin, Bailey's etc.. if you did not upgrade and you wanted a Scotch or C.C you would have to pay $6.00 US. So for us the upgrade was great.The hotel it's self needs updated especially the bathrooms, but the rest of the room was fine.We were on the second floor, and my sister and her husband were on the first floor which they requested. The building we were in was right next to the beach, and the pool. The buffet,and Al-acarte restaurants were all very close, and the trolly was right outside to go up to the main building.We had a great time and would go back to that resort. The food was good, We enjoyed the Mexican, the best. But lots of variety in the buffet. You won't starve that's for sure.If you get a good deal on this resort go for it. The beach is amazing and they have a market about 10 mins along the beach. In the resort they have people trying to sell timeshares they are called Royal something.But if you say no thank you not interested they leave you alone.Anyway hope you find this helpful..

Room Tip: Higher floors you have a nice view of the ocean or the pool.

We flew with Sunwing and arrived at around midnight. We were very pleased when we went to our Royal Suite which was 2 floors. It was VERY spacious room, large entry way, main living area on bottom floor with a balcony and bathroom and wooden spiral staircase. 2nd floor same size with another balcony with a view of the ocean and pool. 4 poster bed, large walk in closet and 4 poster bed and jacuzzi in room.
The only complaint I would have about the room would be the lack of warm water for showers, We also had an issue with the upstairs bathroom shower not draining and toilet not flushing well but this was fixed quite quickly for us by maintenance. It was not modern But we really liked this room. Very clean. Staff throughout resort were very friendly.
I would go back again for sure, the only thing I may say is there are people selling timeshares that I had wished our Sunwing rep had warned us about and this was NOT mentioned to us at all. I realize I have a voice but advance notice of the pushyness still would have been appreciated.

Arriving at the resort from the airport was chaotic because they do not allow you to take your bags with you from the drop off point to check-in at reception. They insist the bags remain curbside. This is problematic when you arrive before noon, (not dressed down for the Caribbean heat), and check-in isn't until 3pm. Once you have your room key, you then return to the curb and they set your luggage out to be delivered to your room. You are still not permitted to take it with you. It took over and hour for our bags to be delivered.

The staff at this resort speak very limited English. We booked our vacation through Sunwing and were assigned Sunwing representative Ana. We mistakenly assumed she would have a good understanding of English. There was no sign of her our first day, but we were given a time to meet her for the group info session the next morning. We attended and discovered the info session was 10% info and 90% sales pitch for "Sunwing approved Contractors". Her information was not only incomplete, it was also inaccurate. She discouraged us from doing our shopping at this resort, saying we'd save money on the shopping tours to San Juan. This was not true. There is no significant difference in price and the people in the shops at the resort were fantastic. It was clear our Sunwing rep had a motive for encouraging us to take the shopping tours. I was NOT impressed that we had wasted half a day of our vacation going to San Juan. We gave up on Ana after that.

Not until our third day did we encounter Hilda at Guest Services. She was truly a resource of information and all too happy to help in any way she could. Reception hadn't given us the VIP package for either of our two VIP rooms, so Hilda located them and explained the package in detail. If you speak only English like us, don't even waste your time trying to make dinner reservations with anyone else at this resort. Time and time again we missed out on a la cart reservations because the Concierge staff were not where they are supposed to be. I wasted entirely too much time trying to track them down between 8am and 3pm when they are supposed to be sitting in one of the two VIP areas.

I didn't enjoy the poolside vendors by the main pool. We found ourselves planning our movement so as to avoid encountering them. They did however speak better English than any of the Caribe Club staff, so they came in handy for directions when needed. We encountered a guy named Wilson who works for Royal and promotes the Princess resorts. He was wonderful and second only to Hilda as a valuable resource during our vacation.

When we booked at this resort, I hadn't understood that topless sunbathing was permitted...Note: it clearly is!

The entertainment at this resort was dismal and the pools closed at 7pm.

This section of beach was second to none in Bavaro and the certainly the best part of this resort. I think this resort would be perfect for a French or Spanish speaking couple who likes to do nothing more than drink and relax on the beach...it certainly was relaxing; I just wish I could speak one of the languages they understand.

Room Tip: Upgrade to VIP

So we finally decided to go on our belated honey moon.. and after reading hundreds of reviews on endless resorts here, we chose this resort to stay at.. & I tell you "The best decision ever"...
We stayed from April 24th to May 1st, 2013...

We flew with Sunwing.. no hitches whatsoever.. arrived an hour early into Punta Cana.. 30 minute drive from the airport to the resort...
We upgraded to VIP (Orange bands) and was worth every penny.. as part of the upgrade, we received a VIP expedited Check in at the guest services desk, ocean view room (room 2212) on the second floor (amazing view).. international unlimited drinks along with domestic, 5 a la carte reservations (Mexican, Italian, Chinese, Dominican & Brazilian) One free VIP a la carte dinner at the speciality restaurants (We used it at La Cava) fantastic food... usually costs $35 per person,
but you need to reserve your dinners very quick for the next 2 days to get seating... 20 minute message per person, one hour free internet per person at the lobby... 24 hour free room service.

We had the buffet dinner first night as we didnt have a reservation.. The food was very good (Huge variety of everything) and the buffet breakfast was a delight (everything you can ask for is there in the buffet)...

So we quickly got into the routine of hitting the beach in the morning.. white sandy beach and blue water with gentle waves... beach is very clean, and no sand flies at all... with bars all around...

Vendors would come up to sell you things (You can bargain and get good deals) but they are not pushy at all.. if you say no thank you they move on quickly...

and the afternoon we spent at the swim up bar... a big SHOUT OUT to our bartenders WALLY & LUNA.. they ware the most fun, most amazing bartenders ever... They had awesome music that just put you in a good mood... They kept an eye on our drinks and kept refilling quickly...
Other servers that were there as well who were great (Carlos, Gabriele, Roberto who made sure our pool was clean all day, & Mr. Rodizio)... What a great bunch of people..

we simply had a blast... We met a lot of people sitting at the bar, from all over the world, English, Americans, Canadians (from our Hometown), French, Russians.. You name it...

Room was very clean, they came in twice to clean our rooms (Morning and night turn down service).. the staff were very friendly.. we made sure we tipped both morning and night ladies... The service was impeccable... fresh towels twice a day, re-stocked mini bar twice a day... just superb service... and the ocean view with balcony was just a delight...

the snack bar (24 hours) was very good... a great thank you to Chef Franklyn (afternoon) & Omar (night time).. they took special care of us and made us especially made pizzas when we asked for it.. they didnt expect tip and said that they do this for service and not tip...

What can i say other than we were very impressed, and will definitely return to this hotel, and would recommend it to anybody who is travelling to Punta Cana...

Room Tip: We were room 2212.. an ocean view room that was very close to beach, restaurants and pools... Just t...

A group of seven stayed at Caribe Club Princess from April 19th to 26th. We booked a superior room and up graded to VIP which was well worth it. WE were in room 2105, ground floor, across from main pool with swim up bar. The location was perfect, the Buffett, pool and beach were so close. At the beach was a bar and a snack bar which had awesome chicken. Jose De La Pay was great...kept us laughing and the service was excellent. Had great fun with the animation crew were great especially minime and spaghetti. Candida at the lobby bar was a breath of fresh air. Frankie at the bar kept us entertained with his guggling and fire tricks. The shows were okay but I must say their costumes were outstanding! La Cava is a must do. Excellent food and service. For anyone with mobility issued this resort is great with everything so close and a trolley that runs every five minutes to transport you to the lobby. Took a cab into Town, did some shopping, ate at Ladelicious...great food, made a stop at Steve's Bar. I loved this resort and would gladly go back. Thanks to the wonderful staff who were friendly, hard working and so much fun. For those who wrote negative reviews you would no doubt find fault with heaven!!!

Room Tip: Coralilla rooms are super!
