Punta Cana - Saona Island
Feb 2020 • Friends
I stayed at the Ocean El Faro resort in Punta Cana with a few friends in February. We purchased the Saona Island excursion through Jorge (our Sunwing rep) and we had an incredible time. Snuba diving was a blast, seeing the crystal clear waters was mesmerizing, we ate a fantastic lunch on a beautiful island, hung out on a beach with clear waters and then took a catamaran back, the catamaran was very lively and super fun. I would highly recommend sunscreen for those of you who are prone to burning due to the lack of shade on the boat but that is my only complaint! We saw tons of wildlife as well: stingrays, starfish, wild horses, roosters, chickens, and even a few Dolphins!
I would highly recommend this excursion to anyone that's interested and to speak directly with Jorge if you ever have the opportunity! 10/10

Sold us something they didn't have, didn't offer refund, transfer process is slow.
Feb 2020
First: Marc and Salvador at the Riu Palace Macao in Punta Cana worked hard to help (Marc even staying 45mins past his end-of-day to try and find us another tour we liked as much) and are in no way responsible for our poor review. In fact, they're the only reason it's not 1-star.

Sunwing/NexusTour's cancellation policy feels like it should almost be illegal. We booked on the plane to go on the Saona Catamaran tour, then upon landing we're told that the only available date was overbooked before we'd even booked it. There were no other dates available. So naturally, we wanted a refund since they couldn't really provide what they sold us. But the policy is no refunds, even if they can't provide the tour you booked.

This is not clearly stated in the in-flight magazine (it says "Refunds are available if the excursion cannot be completed" but that's turns out to be only if the boat literally can't leave the dock, not if there's no space for you). Once Sunwing/Nexus have your money, they're keeping it.

So I hope they really liked that $300, we're never flying Sunwing or using Nexus again for our remaining 50ish years.

Potential improvements for Sunwing & Nexus:
-More clearly state your refund policy, and explicitly state that if tours are overbooked, you're keeping our money.
-If you sell a customer a thing you don't have, offer a 25% discount on their rebooked thing.
-Have a data tie-in to your in-flight booking system that knows which tours actually have space available, rather than just taking our money and selling us literally nothing
-Have an easy-to-use calendar of tours, so when someone needs to rebook (because let's face it, your accountants and MBAs love this policy and it's not going anywhere), it doesn't take your poor rep nearly an hour to find something else that's happening on the same day with approximately the same price.

Ezequiel was amazing
Feb 2020 • Friends
We had an amazing vacation and Ezequiel helped make that happen! He helped us organize our week and gave us advice on what excursions he would recommend. We did two excursion, buggies and bbq and a catamaran tour of saona island and Catalina island. He recommended both of these tours and we were not disappointed! He was always available if we needed to reach him and he was very welcoming. We stayed at ocean blue and sand and all the staff were great, highly recommend staying here and we will be back! Thank you for making our first trip down south one to remember!
