Nice "value" hotel
Posted Aug 2, 2016
To be clear, this is for the Punta Cana Princess adults only resort, seems reviews for their whole line of resorts get mixed together... Arrived in mid-July for a Monday-Friday stay, resort looks beautiful and the staff are very nice. The room is clean, bed is not the most comfortable thing in the world but gets the job done. The air in our room was barely adequate, kept it cool but that was about it and it was on the lowest setting when we walked in. The mini-fridge was about the same, drinks were cool but not cold, they did keep it stocked with a couple of sodas, water and a few beers every day. Beach is OK, lots of seaweed and waves but that is the side of the island you are on so is to be expected, they do their best to keep it clean though, the beds are great to relax in. Ate at the fondue restaurant the first night, it was pretty good, that would pretty much be the end of the good food though, all the others were not so good, mostly overcooked food (my med-rare "steak" was well done) that was under seasoned. The buffets didn't have much better offerings, dry burgers and odd tasting hot dogs, the nachos were good even if the chips tasted a little stale, could have used some jalapenos though. Breakfast was slightly better as you could get a freshly made omlette, but for the first time in my life I was disappointed in "bacon", that was NOT bacon, and I'm reasonably sure their "ham" was Spam. Drinks were good, but avoid the tequila, tastes like gasoline.
