“Beautiful property...clean...and fabulous beach!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

I would highly recommend this resort. The property is beautifully manicured and everything is kept very clean, right to the beach. This has to be the nicest beach I have ever been on...wide, clean, beaufitul soft white sand, warm water. The restaurants were great...no problem getting a good meal at any time of day. The nightly shows were entertaining and the animation people were very impressive!...they are so talented and full of enthusiasm. Loved the resident peacocks!

Room Tip: We were on the second floor of the building right across from the restaurants. Very good location...

We booked Caribe Club Princess last minute. We didn't make the wrong choice. From the service,the food, the over all resort we had a wonderful week. But the Royal Vacations right in front of the main dinning room really has to go. They are very pushy they insist that we go talk to them when you don't they get angry with you. So you go in different directions to try and avoid them. It takes away from your holiday. If I didn't return it would be because of ROYAL VACATIONS.

Room Tip: Ocean front is very nice.

The front desk staff was very nice and accommodating. Especially since our flight was 5 hours late. The food was okay but not the greatest. The bar-tending staff were always cheerful and smiling. One thing that was annoying was everyday time you went to the main buffet to eat there were time-share guys there trying to get you to go with them to pick up your "special welcome package" They would take you to another office where you would be pressured to stay for at least an hour to listen to what they had to say about purchasing "club memberships". When you wanted to go they would become rude and continue to push you to stay. The reef excursion we did was a lot of fun, but the buggy excursion was kind of a let down. You were brought to a nice beach but there were tons of local vendors there that wouldn't leave you alone. Then at the caves it was the same thing. The housekeeping staff were very friendly and if you tipped them they would always stock you with lots of water bottles and beer in your room and leave extra towels. If you wanted a chair by the beach or the pool be ready to get up at 6:30am to reserve a seat or you won't have one all day. In summary, we had a decent time.

Room Tip: Be sure to upgrade to the Caribe VIP or you may be located in a room that is near the sewage.

Stayed here for one week in April . Close to the airport. Fantastic beach and was able to find lounge chairs no problem. Food was pretty good too. Most of the fish dishes were really good. Our last night here they had an awesome beach party which was way better than going to the disco.

Rooms are pretty old. Clean but need to be updated. Also it would be nice if they had screens on the balcony doors so that we can leave them open to get fresh air without fearing all the Mosquitos coming in .

Overall a good value for what we paid .

I had such a wonderful time during my stay at the Caribe Club Princess; it was absolutely worth every last-minute dollar I spent.

The beach was glorious. It was wide, with gorgeous white sand, and the ocean was warm like bathwater. Almost all my time was spent here. There was minimal seaweed and what there was wasn't the gross slimy kind you see on Canadian beaches. The palm trees provided enough shade if you weren't willing to wake up super early to save a beach chair, which also gave you the freedom to easily sit in the sun as well.

The room was a little disappointing, but only because the bathroom was a little dated. However, it was kept very clean and everything was perfectly functional, so it turned out to be a very nice stay. I have had problems in the past at other resorts concerning bugs in the bedrooms, particularly on the ground floor, but I never saw any sort of critters in the room.

The cleanliness of the hotel overall was excellent. Everything was well maintained.

The food was amazing! I managed to try the Italian, Mexican, and Dominican a la cartes during my stay, and I can't remember the last time I had such delicious meals. I highly recommend trying these restaurants. The buffet was a little lacking in comparison, but delicious nonetheless. There was always a wide selection of foods at all the restaurants and it was always tasty. There was also a snack bar right on the beach which was open whenever the buffet was closed, so that was a really nice feature.

I have never met such a wonderful staff. Everyone we met was thrilled to help us with whatever we needed. They were all very informative and so friendly! They all loved to have fun, so there was never a dull moment.

As far as entertainment goes, this hotel was pretty good. The 'Animation Team' was always on their feet with different activities which anyone was free to join, such as relay races, volleyball, and water sports. If those didn't interest you, there were various excursions available for very low prices. My friend and I didn't partake in any, but you could, for example, go parasailing for two dollars or do a catamaran trip to a gorgeous natural pool etc. The shows were what you would expect from resort shows, but they were super fun.

Overall I had an amazing time at the Caribe Club Princess and I already cannot wait to return for another stay, I highly recommend this resort.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side (or, the back of the building) were along the staff pathway, which posed no...

Although we booked the Caribe Club Princess, we did not actually stay there, so I cant comment on the hotel itself. However, their customer service was excellent. When we arrived at the Hotel they couldn't find our reservation and the hotel was completely booked. Immediately they apologized and upgraded us to their sister property next door, the Bavaro Princess. Upon arrival at the Bavaro Princess they upgraded us again to a platinum VIP package. The trip was wonderful and so was the staff at both resorts! Highly recommend!

We just stayed a week at the Princess Caribe and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were phenomenal, friendly, helpful and fun. The buffet was delicious and had a variety of foods. It was hard to get good seats on the beach so we got up quite early and put our towels on the chairs. That was the way to go and also we saw some beautiful sunrises. Entertainment was good as the staff work really hard all day long!! We wondered if they got a break. Wi-fi was weak at times in the lobby but good enough. The rooms were ok, clean but a little old. Overall we had a great time and would recommend this place to others. If you are a fussy person then this place probably would not be suitable but if you are open and easy going then you would love this it.
