From being greeted by the VIP Tortuga Bay agent steps away from diembarking our flight our stay exceeded our 1st time visit to this resort and the D.R.
The property was immaculate in a beautiful setting with kind and well trained staff. Tortuga Bay is one property within the "Grupo PUNTACANA".
An important fact is their commitment to environmental protection/ethics. Their Puntacana Ecological Foundation has a water conservation/treatment facility, recycling program together with the airport with the objective to become a zero discharge community.
The beautiful golf courses use seagrass paspulum grass that can be irrigated with salt water. They have a solid waste program - waste water is treated and used to water the gardens. The "Grupo" also does much in the way of building schools and providing job training. We spoke to employees who said they are provided with special health insurance and are proud to work for this group.
My husband and I are always concerned how staff are treated; we are happy to report that this was a property that cares about it's people, environmental protection for its country, and it's tourism.
Good going Oscar de la Renta, Julio Iglesias, Vincenzo Calcerano, and the team at Tortuga Bay!We look forward to returning with friends next year!
Note: it was my birthday and our building manager surprised me with very special treats! Gracias.
