Baecation

Hotel was beautiful. Room was clean and huge. Serivce can be work on. More activities needed and a list of them day by day. The hotel shop was a little over priced for regular items. Spa needs work and better service. Overall it was a good place to have fun.

The Perfect Vacation for his 40th

I took my boyfriend of 1 year here for his 40th birthday. He is a really "picky" person, and everything has to be done correctly or he'll complain. I checked out tons of resorts and read through hundreds of reviews before choosing Rui Republica (Adults Only). From the time that we got there until the time that we left everything was beautiful. We've stayed at other resorts before and this was by far the cleanest. Our room was cleaned daily and the bathroom was spotless. They replenished our bar every other day with alcohol, water, and sodas. The staff was so pleasant, and though there was a language barrier they tried their best to communicate with us. The food was exceptional and the beach was breathtaking. There was seaweed in the ocean the first few days but by the 3rd day the water was crystal clear. The entertainment was really fun too, with daily activities and games at the pool. We got stuck there an extra two days because of hurricane Irma, but it was perfect. My hard to please boyfriend said that I out-did myself! I'm thankful to Cheap Caribbean and The Rui Republica for allowing me to make this year his best birthday ever! Not sure why some reviewers wrote such negative stuff but our entire stay was BEAUTIFUL!!! We'll be back again, perhaps for my birthday!

Not what we hoped

Start off first with the good stuff. The beach is BEAUTIFUL! The huts with chairs are awesome. Get yourself out there at 7-7:30 am to get first choice and front row. The rooms are also nice. The staff are very welcoming and aim to please. That's where it ends. We are foodies. We also are fitness people and live on a specific meal plan for most of our lives. We were looking forward to CHOWING DOWN on all the foods we usually don't get to eat. We aren't picky. We like everything from McDonalds to fine dining. But these food was LESS than midiocre. It was poorly prepared. Not well tasting. Just completely disappointing. My husband actually tried a ribeye in the steak place and it was PALE. Tasteless. He ordered it medium rare and it showed no pink anywhere. Inedible. The Italian restaurant was TERRIBLE. the pizza from there was edible but that's it. The buffet smelled bad. Every day walking in there... horrible odor. The Asian place at least had sushi which was good but it was closed 4 out of the 6 nights we were there. The deserts everywhere were what you'd expect to see at a cheap buffet. BLAH. Breakfast was about the only meal I could look forward too. I just loaded up on carbohydrates for the day. As for comfortabity... the air conditioning was out 3 out of 6 days. Not a big deal sitting by the beach with an ocean breeze but terrible sitting in you room or restaurant. My husband was literally sweating into his food. GROSS. So for my money, this was NOT a good deal. I would definitely recommend trying a different location.

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.
