Worst AI Resort in Punta Cana

I'm just curious if anyone wants to share what they think are the worst all inclusive resorts that they've stayed in in PC? We all know the best ones but I'd like to hear what people think are the ones that should be avoided at all costs because I've seen some really great deals lately for AI resorts &was wondering if they are scary places. Thanks!

Best/worst really depends on your point of view, economic situation and past AI experiences. As an example, if you are well off and are accustomed to staying at luxury resorts you would think many of the AI's are to be avoided. On the other hand if you've never gone anywhere south, never stayed in a fancy hotel, you'd might think even the cheapest property is heaven on earth. Hard one to answer.

Just to maybe put a twist on the question and still try to get some valuable information, perhaps some people could share their experiences in terms of "value for your buck"?

some places may seem "avoidable" to some, but if you paid close to nothing for it.... i wouldn't categorize it as the worst place... you just got what you paid for...

I agree it all depends on peoples needs and likes, but I think there is a general rule of thumb of what's good and bad... no?

I agree that this is a tough topic to touch. I echo what bbgamer says. I'd hate to have a resort booked that someone includes on this thread as being the worst.

Compared to the rest of the Caribbean, I think any PC resort comes in at a very high level of value.

Definately subjective. Based on each resorts reviews - each resort is the worst and the best all at the same time. Depends on the person and expectations.

My worst....IFA.

Second.....Barcelo Palace tied with Punta Cana Princess.

See! PCP is number one on many people's list of best all inclusives. You just can't tell another person what they are gonna enjoy!

My favorites....Iberostar Grand Bavaro

2nd best.....Bavaro Princess and Iberostar Dominicana.

some folks hate em

So true you never know what one person will like and another not like. I have been to both the Punta Cana Princess and the Bavaro Princess and we actually liked both but would return to the PCP before the BP!

But for us one resort that is rated low but had great value for the buck was Natura Park. But that depends on what you are looking for. It is not rated high because it does not have a lot of extras - no disco or casino and only 3 a la cartes.

oceangirl... I know you are not a fan of PCP, but I didn't know you had also been to IBD. I've been to both as well, and in my eyes, PCP wins hands down!!! That's so interesting, and of course proves the point that "best" and "worst" are in the eyes of the beholder. What makes something best for someone makes it worst for me. Go figure.
