It was Ok

Went to another resort in Puerto Plata last year and I said never again well nothing has changed ! PROS , the place was older but in process of remodeling , clean , food was great , the people at the front desk did speak English and were very accommodating ! CONS , a huge complex with not enough people to manage the operation , always had to wait for something ! They brought 10 lb bags of ice to the pool bar one bag at a time and we got 4 ice cubes per drink in plastic cups that were paper thin !The main pool was way to crowded all the lounge chairs right next to each other ,no breathing room , all the chairs that were in the outside part of the lobby and the same chairs that were outside in the pool area were so big and very uncomfortable,the beach was clean but nobody was on it ,very windy , the majority of all the workers didn't speak English which made it bad for them and us , the WIFI was a joke you were allowed 1hr per day of free wifi in the main lobby JOKE ! there was plenty of hot water in our room ! I knew there wasn't any turquoise ocean water but pics I saw looked better than last year , but I was sadly mistaken , the Casino was closed with no power I wish I had more Pros than Cons but oh well ,go try it you might like it !!

So fun!

I had a great time! The excursions were fantastic! My room was beautiful. The staff was great! They did shows every night and they were fun. The resort is a great size but they have golf carts to take you to and from if you don't want to walk. The food was good. The casino, the clubs and other restaurants were great. This was a great trip. Lots of fun.

What's to Love

It's an all-inclusive bundle of beachy goodness for the whole clan.

The Relaxing Caribbean Massage at the spa - spoiler alert: they use bamboo.

Sinking deep into the comfy lounge chairs at the beach and pool.

The rockin' entertainment programs - you'll be amused from dawn 'til dusk.

 

What We'd Change

There's not much to do in the surrounding area, but with food, fun, shopping and entertainment in Pueblo Principe all on site, there's no reason to leave!

 

Why You Should Go

It's an hour & 20 minutes from the Puerto Plata airport - a long trip, but it'll be worth it.

Paddle surfing, kayaks, catamarans and snorkeling are all free for an hour per day.

There's a kids' club - drop the young'uns off and take some time to yourself.

You can channel your inner-competitiveness in a game of putt putt or tennis.
