Amazing vacay but I see the downfalls

The location and amentities were amazing, cheap Caribbean reps were fantastic and our excursions were by far the best part of the trip. I'm not picky eater at all so I was fine with the buffet style but after 3 days of buffet style it gets really old. I didn't understand other reviews of the poor food choices till I was there for a few days. So 7 days of buffet food was not that enjoyable. However; the night shows and pool entertainment everyday were so fun the employees although little English were so kind and helpful. Cheap Caribbean will def be how I book future trips!

Best Vacation of all time

I'm a travel agent and have visited a lot of places but Riu Republica exceeded all my expectations. This place is first class in every aspect from check in to check out. The service, food, drinks, entertainment, beach, room, excursions and the people left me speechless. I can't wait to go back. One of my best vacations ever.

End of may 2017

Very nice and new hotel. Very clean and food was very good but really one main dining hall. Staff very friendly and accommodating. A bit of a language barrier but no real issues. Suggest tipping for personal service bit many did not. Beach was a bit rough but very clean and if get past the initial waves it calms out. When at the resort we spent most time at pool. They could use more pool service but on DR time...Lol. Overall a solid 4 star rating. You can always find complaints but the rui repulica is very impressive place. Very diverse adult crowd and activities so you can make it as fun or relaxing as you want. The DR staff and people in general are very nice and I definitely felt more safe than in puerta vallarta mexico. I definitely will go back...good golfing there also!

Overall good

The resort was nice, rooms were very comfortable, modern and clean. I especially loved the balcony we had overlooking the water and all the people walking in the center of the hotel/gardens. The staff in the restaurants were good, but not extremely attentive. The cleaning ladies were very nice and polite. The staff in general had a bit of an attitude, like they don't need tourists. I noticed that most of all compared to other similar countries I have been in like Mexico, Costa Rica etc. The entertainment staff I thought was flat out ignorant, very unorganized with their shows and flat out ignorant, trying to be funny at other people's expense and offensive (don't get me wrong, I do have a great sense of humor and I am not trying to be hard, I work in performing arts) these guys were just straight up annoying (their fake laughs, oh god), my whole party thought so. Also on the entertainment staff, stop hitting on girls, they thought I didn't speak spanish so would speak about girls horribly thinking we didn't understand a thing. Front desk was not helpful at all, we came in around 1:30 and had to wait for 2 hours for our room to be ready, in our long sleeves and luggage, just had to wait in the lobby while we got an attitude from the front desk lady. Never has this happened to us elsewhere! And the day I had to call a cab to go to the airport I asked the concierge if I could use the phone to call the cab, he told me I had to call from my room because I had to pay. So I ended up going back to my room with my luggage wheeling around (mind you my room was on the other side of the hotel!) and then had to pay 3 dollars for just a 40 second phone call. Other RIUs have a different vibe, more elegance and the staff and entertainment is much better! The best thing about this location I would say is the beach, the beach is phenomenal. And the rooms were great. I don't think I will return to this hotel, I would definitely pick another one like RIU PALACE.

What's to Love

No reservations needed at any of the restaurants.

A palatial retreat where the mixin' and the minglin' is only with adults - no kids or crying babies at this resort.

You're located on Dominican's Macoa Beach - the mind-boggling ocean views go on for days.

Taking the introductory scuba lesson (it happens in the pool) - you'll be ready for the ocean waters in no time.

The pools are spacious - you won't bump into each other - no one wants to be that close (especially if the bathrooms are faraway).

When you're ready for your next cocktail, all you have to do is just swim on over to the bar.

Detoxing in the steam bath at the gym (all those icky work impurities will stream out of your pores).

The whirlpool bath that makes you feel like a jelly fish.

 

What We'd Change

The resort is large, but you really don't feel crowded and the restaurants can accommodate everyone easily and there is plenty of room at the pools.

 

Why You Should Go

So close to the airport you'll land and be at the resort in a flash - you want your vacay to start immediately!

The Mediterranean-style village Altos de Chavon is near - authentic architecture, swoon-worthy boutiques, cafes & more.

Also in Altos de Chavon, check the Amphitheatre for Kandela! - don't miss this Caribbean musical review.

See the lush landscapes at the Punta Cana Ecological Reserve: plants, animals, coral reef, freshwater lagoons & more.

Hone your golf skills and tune up your tennis swing - both are available near the resort.
