We recently stayed for 7 nights. We have been to Puerto Plata (Blue Bay) and others as well as Punta Cana. Punta Cana has gotten very expensive. Mostly new and no mountains. All resorts, no locals. We loved the grounds. The rooms were not bad, the beds really comfortable. Being a quieter time of the season it was abit dull in entertainment for sure and not impressed with the food at all. Ate in town a number of times which was awesome food. The staff are not motivated to ensure you enjoy your stay for sure. Nice to walk out front of resort and be right downtown but shopping sucked and as most areas they bug you to come and shop. The street girls are rampant if thats what you want but usually dont bother you unless a single guy. Very persistent. Some men are there for just that but in the resort tactful. Legal there so... Spent a very late night out with locals in bars. An experience to say the least. Be very careful late at night but day time no issue at all. Paid $30 for week of wifi which is 1/2 cost in P.P. resort. $15 safe, again 1/2 of PP resort. If you get to buffet as soon as opens its good but after abit horrible. Vendors allowed on resort 2 days while we were there push to sell esp. Because quieter now. Offer 1/2 of asking. Learn to say no. You will need to many times. Jacuzzis on ocean beautiful. Weekends, locals get cheap rates and pile in with kids to eat, drink, swim. Lifestyle Reps everywhere bugging you to go to meeting so they get commission then sales takes over to sell you timeshares. Drinks are good. A few friendly ones if you tip now and again. A definate 3 star. Dont forget to take your blue issued beach towel and TV remote with room key when checking out. It will cost you if not. Be careful in town as a ton of mainly motorcycles and pedestrians do not have right of way . There are no rules just honk.
