Best Vacation Ever

My husband and I decided to go to Dominican Republic Punta Cana for our honeymoon. After seeing the news reporting about American deaths and crime happening there I was extremely skeptical to say the least. We went ahead and decided to go anyway. It was the best vacation decision we have ever made and definitely plan on going back next year. The room was nice and clean, beach was beautiful, the employees were more than welcoming and everyone helped you. I definitely recommend the Riu Republica!!!

PLEASE LOOK AT REVIEWS BEFORE BOOKING

First I would like to say Cheap Caribbean was great in helping me find a last minute trip for my brothers surprise 40th birthday trip. With that being said here is my review Spoke with the rep from cheap caribbean told her my budget was a certain amount. She was able to get me an all inclusive resort that had room credit as well as other party like things at the resort. She saved me $200 by extending my trip from friday to tuesday instead of friday to monday. She also helped me save on travel instead of me flying to orlando to meet my brother then fly to DR she was able to fly me directly to DR from NY and flew my brother from Orlando to NY and we both traveled together from NY. ONLY DOWN SIDE WAS OUR SEATS WAS NOT TOGETHER, AND MY SEAT WAS EXTREMELY TIGHT BEING THAT I AM 6'5 I HAD NO CHOICE OF SEAT AND WAS UNCOMFORTABLE FOR THE WHOLE 4HOUR FLIGHT... We Got to the airport and we were picked up by the travel agents recommendation of AMSTAR. They were great in understanding english and being very friendly. Got to the resort and it was extremely hot... We wasnt greeted with hot or cold towels... We wasnt greeted with drinks or at least cold water. The recieption desk sits in a open lobby, meaning if you are like me and hate the heat this may not be for you... There is NO AIR CONDITION anywhere but YOUR ROOM and the SPORTS BAR.... The resort is 70 % open to mother nature... Spoke with front desk told them why I am here and who its for The room was reseved as a KING bed for two grown men (of which I am highly annoyed now because it was supposed to be listed as a birthday for my brother and I requested 2 beds) I also requested them to do something nice to the room for this occasion. The lady informed us at front desk nothing was mentioned in the comments about 2beds or being that this is a birthday trip. Now I am really mad but tried to remain peaceful since it was my brothers birthday.,.. I inquired at the front desk about the ROOM CREDIT I was told about via the cheap Caribbean sales woman. The receptionist inform me that there is no room credit and handed me a envelope with internet password info and map of resort. enclosed was $20 coupon for spa, a car rental coupon and casino match money worth $10. THIS IS NOT ROOM CREDIT. THESE WERE COUPONS... had I known this I would have not booked this resort especially not for the amount I was charged. Got to our room after waiting 30mins... Entering the room we saw dirty glasses on the mini bar area we also noticed that the electrical didnt work Went downstairs and expressed that the room didnt meet my request as there is no power in the room and there is dirty glasses on the mini bar as if someone just drank from it. Went back downstairs only to be told that the room card needs to be placed in the wall to gain access to electricity in the room. WHICH WE WERENT TOLD IN THE FIRST PLACE. The receptionist then told us to wait an additional 10 mins and she we will put us in a different room. We then went to the 2nd room only to notice dirty mirrors (BLACK SPOTS WAS ALL OVER THE MIRROR) and there was (STRANGE STAIN LIKE RESIDUE ON THE SHOWER GLASS) ... Our room was changed again.... this time we was placed on the second floor... We unpacked and jus as we was about to get ready for dinner we noticed a roach in the shower and a roach in the bedroom area... At this point I could no longer hold my anger... I expressed my grievances to front desk... and they looked into another room. I recieved a email the next morning about my room being ready however my brother wasnt trying to move to another room at this time... After killing 2 roaches and cleaning the shower out we stayed in the room for the remainder of our trip.. The drinks was good... A little too much sugary drinks. Definatley need to invest in other drink options... Grape Juice, Cranberry juice or Grapefuit Juices... Pretty much all our drinks was Soda and liqour or Frozen margaritas. By day 3 we were just drinking straight champagne or drinking straight liqour. We went to the beach area, the kayak and the catamaran was free however we was told in order to be on the catamaran we have to pay $35 for an instructor to show us how to use the catamaran. However we was told via cheap caribbean website that those items are FREE AT IN THE ALL INCLUSIVE RESORT. we decided not to do it.. The sports bar has a nice vibe and setting however it would be nice if they offered other meals other than HOTDOGS, NACHOS WITH ONLY CHEESE, HAMBURGER HALF SUMMERGED IN OIL/WATER. There are plenty other items you can provide for low food cost... CHICKEN TENDERS, POTATO WEDGES, PIZZA OR PIZZA BITES, NACHOS with various toppings... The resort sits about 400 feet from the lobby ... bring walking shoes... everything is spaced out The resort has a gym which we used 2x And a slide are in the pool which we used 1x. There are 5 restaurants on site Taj Mahal which is Indian was closed which I wanted to go to. The Italian restaurant was great setting but its buffet only and the food wasnt near authentic Italian as it should.. all these restaurants have buffet except the steakhouse which we ate our last night there... by far the steakhouse was the best. The staff was very friendly and inviting The pools were nice and warm. The performances was good... A karaoke night would have been great... I rate our stay at the resort a 6 out of 10...

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.
