Which AI's Have Main Buffet open air & sight of pool/beach?

Hello folks

Have been to Puerta Vallerta several times and stayed at the Allegro in Nuevo---The thing about the Allegro that caught our eye was the 'all inclusive' look to it whereby one could sit at a table on the perimiter of the open air Main Buffet Restaurant and easily see both the pool and the beach--One's view was not blocked. I did a quick run through of several other hotels in Nuevo and none had that open concept /all together/not sectionalized effect. Several had their Main Buffet set way back from the beach and also were closed in. Several required one to walk a fair distance towards the beach before one even saw the beach.

We would like to try the Punta Cana area as the beaches look very nice but we are having a bit of difficulty finding that open/see everything together effect as we had at the Allegro in PVR

Does anyone have any suggestions?---eg the GP Palace looks like it might do the trick--anywhere else??

Hi there

There are not many hotels here as far as I am aware which fit the bill

Open air dining is available at many properties but is being discouraged more & more as there's a hygiene issue with birds able to freely enter.

Most snack areas are open air, especially at lunch time and I think you may see the pool & beach at the Bahia Principe

What is the GP Palace?

lonsys,

check out the Majestic, it is on Bavaro beach and depending on the room you will see everything all at once. They have a buffet (at lunch that is in the middle of the pool and beach). The MAIN buffet is by the lobby and you can't see the beach but the pool. The steak and seafood restaurant is on the beach and at the end of the pool. It is open for lunch and dinner (not breakfast). Look at the pictures, it sounds like what you are describing. Good luck with your search.
