Great Vacation

I had a great time but there were bugs in our room that bit us up so bad. I had housekeeping to clean up my room several times but the bugs were still there. I showed the hotel staff all the bites and they told me the doctor charge 150.00. I requested the manager but he never called. My husband and I returned home to the US with bites all over our bodies and the resort haven’t called us back as of yet. Over all the resort is very fun and the food is great.

RIU Republica Vacay Review.

We took a girls 50th bday trip. Nov 25- Dec 1. 2017. The resort is LARGE and lots of people...Appx 2000 at any given time. The pools and water slides are great...the beach...not so much...1000+ people all trying to get a spot on Appx 400 yards of beach....good luck... Food was mostly excellent except for the steakhouse restaurant...wasn't worth the 45 min wait and it wasn't that good... I've been to other all inclusive resorts and every staff member could understand and speak English...not here...I asked for a remote control and got a pillow...ughh...our room was nice...asked for 2 queens but h2ot a king and a sleeper sofa which was very comfy... Housekeeping was not great....I would expect my room to be done by 5 pm..it wasn't...and it was forgotten on several days all together.... Its a nice place with good nightly entertainment and a great value. ... Just not for me....

Great place to vacation

There was a little confusion on the room from the start. We arrived late and asked to be close to beach. But keep the 3rd floor room that was requested. Was given a ground floor room and no view. We were tired and my wife didn't want to do anything about it that late at night. The next morning we talked to front desk. We had no robes and the fridge was empty. They said they were sorry and would fix it. But we needed to wait till after 2pm and come back. When we came back the lady at counter had 2 new keys ready. We were moved to room 4091 and loved it. From there on it was the perfect vacation. There is always a choice of pools and chairs on the beach to enjoy the sun. There are many places to get a drink from the beach to the slides. The buffet has many choices that should please most. The specialty resturants are easy to get in without reservations. If there is no seating available you get a beeper when your table is ready. The staff is great and always polite. But service is slow at times due to the shear volume of guests. We were a little worried about theft due to some reviews of Punta Cana. One day my wife left her watch on the table. It was there when we got back and was left out every day.after that. This place is what you make of it and you choose to have a perfect vacation. This place has everything you need to do so.

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.

Soak up the sun and drench yourself in what will be your everything-you-want reality for the next week - pool/beach time all day, food and drink at your disposal (and you don't have to make it, serve it, clean it), your choice of activities to do (or not to do - remember: this is YOUR week - no schedule, no lists, no kids!)
