Although I am young, I have travelled extensively and have been to many places including: Puerto Vallarta, Holguin, Varadero, Barbados, Puerto Plata and now Punta Cana. I feel I have to tell you this, as some of the negative reviews come from people that have not traveled to the Carribean and give rather narrow-minded reviews that may be skewed. Take...

My My My, where do I begin? We were there Nov 15-22 I guess I'll start with some complaints about the posts on this board. There are obviously some high strung people that don't understand the concept of "vacation". This is a marvelous resort with over 2000 dominican employees. We found out that they work for 3000 pesos/month. That is...

This is our first trip to the caribbeans. I did my homework, checked tripadvisor.com everyday for a few months to make sure that this vacation comes out to be perfect. We were there for 6 days (Nov 7-Nov 13).... FYI: I did not expect this resort to be a 5 star so I didn't go in all "expecting things". Front...

We went to the Bahia Principe from October 10th to October 18th on our honeymoon! The staff at the Bahia were so friendly and went out of their way to ensure that their guests were comfortable. It was the little touches such as the flowers in the bedroom that made it special. Make sure you tip about a $1 (about...

We stayed at the Bahia Principe Nov. 7 -14. It was a very much anticipated trip and was fantastic minus a few problems. I will try and give as much detail as possible, because these reviews really helped me so much, so perhaps I may help someone else. The airport was a breeze. I was really impressed by how quickly...

This was our (myself, wife and 14 year old son) fouth trip to Punta Cana and the fourth different resort. We love the area. When it comes to beaches, there are none better in the Caribbean. Palm trees, white sand, beautiful water, etc. After this many times here, we know about the "language problem" most Americans seem to have. First...

Doing an All Inclusive was very new to us. We went with another couple from Oct. 30/04 - Nov. 6/04. Nothing went wrong with our week. The sand was soft and white. The ocean was clean and clear. The rooms were awesome. The staff always had a smile and a hello for us. The pools were spotless. We did go...
