What a heavenly place! Fitted our needs exactly and we cannot wait for our next visit there!
After our Club med Punta Cana was cancelled due to the snow storms and they did not not refund us we decided to look for somewhere else. Punta Palmera did not have many reviews since they were opened Sep 2013. We decided to take the risk and had such a good experience!
First, the warm welcome and the personal everyday caring by the whole staff was unforgettable!
I don't even know where to start: Keren, the sales executive, who was phenomenal and Domingo our great driver, Yevette, Jose, Angelo and many others. I must say that all staff were very friendly and always tried to find the best for us. The apartment was nice and neat with some Ikea furniture that actually made us feel at home. The place is pretty new so everything was clean (which was very important for me!)
The view from the balcony to the pool and beach was outstanding. We were looking for a quiet place, with a friendly staff and NOT many activities on site but anything can be arranged for a good price by the Hotel. We went snorkeling and we loved the fact they take you to a supermarket which had most western products (even gluten free) and cook for ourselves some of the time.
(Our friends in other "all inclusives" had constant stomach issues while we did not.) We had their breakfast" A-la carte" two time which was nice, and dined at Cappuccino which had nice food but maybe a little too pricy.
Bottom line - this was perfect for us, quiet, clean, small and private with the personal touch.
Hope it stays this way since we saw several constructions areas around.
A huge thank you to all the staff for making our vacation perfect!
