We had high expectations of Punta Cana. Everyone was pumped about going because we had booked it several weeks in advance with a local travel agent. We got a great rate and was promised free green fees for certain time stayed and $1000 credit to be used how you would like. The resort was beautiful and very clean upon arrival. At check-in we were given $1000 worth of coupons to be used at the resort. Useless. Every single one of them had a underlying condition which made it almost impossible to take advantage of. The casino was ridiculous and totally empty 99% of the time. They only paid out in pesos. Green fees were paid but the cart rental and club rental made up the difference. The staff at the resort for the most part seemed indifferent to our needs and borderline rude. We wanted to shop in town and the only place they would take us was to an affiliated shop (notice I said shop, not shops) which had absolute junk. All-in-all I would not recommend this resort to anyone. Although we had a lot of fun it was because we made it ourselves. This would be a wonderful place to vacation if the staff and resort management would take lessons from other, more established resorts.
