Punta Cana Princess

We are 3 older ladies who have booked to go to PCP in February, now that we have booked I'm scared we have made the right decision. We chose it mainly because it is adults only and we have stayed at the Ambar before. Will we be dissapointed??

We love PCP. Hubby and I, mid 50's, are heading back in November. You will always find those who do not like a resort. Everyone has different tastes, but most love it there if you read through the reviews and threads here on the forum. It's quiet, small and personal. No frills. And you have access to the sister resorts. We are going for two weeks and we could try a different a la carte each night. Lots of choices. Also, the beach party on Saturday is nice. Tables on the beach and music. Beautiful beach.

I can't wait!

No one knows if you will be disappointed, only you can decide that after getting there and comparing the experience to your expectations.

PCP is a very quiet adults only resort, not even a lot of animation type activities. There are some, but certainly much more laid back compared to other resort animation teams. You can go next door to the sister resorts for more activities though.

It's also an older resort, and some of the rooms need a little TLC.

But, having said that, we were there last year and enjoyed it very much. The beach is beautiful there, lots of room, plenty of loungers. PCP's beach is truely one of the best in the area.

Restaurants are all very good, imo, and you have access to the sister resorts next door for food as well.

If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation, PCP will fit the bill.

If you want to see some videos of the resort, check out my channel on youtube:

Happy travels.

Thank you so much for your replys. We are looking for a quiet laid back resort and are not into games at the pool, so it sounds perfect for us. Dont mind too much about the rooms being dated as long as they are clean. We are travelling with Sunwing Vacations will we be able to eat at an a la carte every night? and can anyone use the palapa beds they have?

Thanks

Nana,

You will be able to eat as often as you like at the a la cartes restaurants. You don't need reservations for the ones at PCP but if you want to eat at the sister resortes' a la cartes then you will need to make reservations that day at customer service desk at PCP. Since you are travelling with Sunwing, you have the VIP package and you will be able to use the beach beds. They are only available to VIP and Platinum customers.

The PCP is not as elegant as the Ambar.

My husband and I are frequent visitors to the Ambar and decided take last minute trip to the PCP this past October.

It is a much smaller resort than the Bahia complex. It is a very very quiet laid back resort. There isn't much to do there..the shows are small and take place in the lobby. We did try the spa for a massage. The therapists were great. We did a little bit of a walk around the sister resorts. The beach is amazing. The food is also very good.

The resort itself is in need of some repairs but we didn't let that bother us. The staff at the PCP are very very nice and will go out of their way to accomodate your requests.

We really enjoyed our stay at PCP and would definately stay there again

I went to Punta Cana Princess with my Mom (mid-50s) in Oct. The rooms are very clean, but definitely dated. Not the fancy bathrooms I'd grown accustomed to, but I didn't mind and neither did my mom. But if you like to spend a lot of time in your room, I guess it might be a let down. The beach is great, and there was never a lack of lounge chairs. Being able to eat at the a la cartes on the property without reservations was really nice, because it allowed us to have flexibility in our schedule. We made a few reservations at the sister resort, and had no problems getting reservations. They have a tram that will take you over there. If you want big shows you can go to the sister property. It is all about expectations. There was a group of people in their young 20s at the resort at the same time as us. They were obviously looking for a wilder time, and I could tell that it was likely they regretted their choice. If you're looking for a quiet, adults only property with easy a la cartes I think you'll be very happy.

Thank you very much for all your replys. We do not need the shows because we find that being outside all day makes us tired and we go to bed early and rise early.

The only thing that scares me a little bit is the rooms, although we do not spend time there during the day I like a nice room that I feel comfortable to sleep in.

I have noticed the amount of repeat guests they have which says a lot, so I am sure we will be fine.

Thank you

Nana, I am sure that you don't have anything to worry about. We have just booked to go back ourselves for our 11th stay arriving on March 30th. A year ago, we took 39 of our family and friends for our daughters wedding. The age of our guests ranged from 22 - 80 years old. Everyone had a fantastic time. For those that wanted quiet, they got it. For those that wanted a bit more excitement, they went to the disco or casino a short trolley ride away.

If you have any specific questions, please feel free to PM me.
