This was our 4th trip to Punta Cana and the first time to this resort. All we could say was this resort exceeded all our expectations.
Let me start by saying, every other time we have come to Punta Cana, we have upgraded to the VIP or Preferred club side of the resort, but this time due to budget restraints we booked the basic superior room, no upgrades at all. And were we presently surprised that we didn’t have to. The rooms were nicely decorated and were amble size for us. Every room has 24 hour room service that gets your order to your room within 30 minutes, and the food is good!
As for the food, we never expect food to be like we are eating in the USA but at this resort the food was outstanding, and the selections of all the different places to eat, you will find it difficult to eat at every restaurant if only staying for 7 days. The selection is that good because you have both resorts to choose from.
The beach is fantastic; the water warm is inviting and kept clean all day by the staff. Think of a warm bath and you get the idea.
If you ever thought about diving, like I have, then do see the dive shop. They have a very nice beginner’s class that you can take. You start with a free pool dive to see if you like breathing under water, then if you want more than you watch a 20 min video, take a short test, go back to the pool and are taught the proper techniques in the pool before you get to dive in the open water. All I can say is what fun it is to finally scuba dive. Thanks Orlando my dive master for teaching me, had a blast.
So to all of you thinking about this resort, stop and book, you won’t be disappointed!
