March 28-April 4/ 12
This was our first time to Puerto Plata, and just loved it!! Been to Punta Cana 8 times so will do a bit of comparison..
First of all, resort needs a bit of uplift but still is great.. Food was good,the same as Punta Cana, buffets, beach resto were the same for lunch everyday, but always something we liked. Chicken, fries, rice, salad bar, pasta bar, grill, soup, and many more. Workers were great, very friendly, always smiling, singing. They sure work long hours..
Beach at our resort was beautiful....water a lot warmer than Punta Cana..Beach is not as busy as Punta Cana. No parasailing, no banana boat, and not a lot of people walking it. We did the market, workers there were much better than Punta Cana.. not as pushy and they don't try to rip you off!! 1/2 a head of brades-$25.00, one hour massage $20.00...cheap,cheap..
They pretty much all speak spanish, french , english.
Would definetly go back to the Iberostar...
