Punta Cana Princess All-Suites & Spa Reviews – Dominican Republic Hotels – Punta Cana Princess All-Suites & Spa

We just returned from a one week stay to celebrate our 35th anniversary, and it was great. Everything about the resort was great, and as advertised: accommodations, food (buffet and ‘a la carte’ restaurants), beach, activities, staff). Ours was a Sunwing vacation, and everything was first rate and on time. It rained too much perhaps, but this is the start of the rainy season afterall. We would definitely recommend it, even for older folks like us, although it is geared more to a younger crowd. And being an adults only resort was a definite plus for us.

Your Arrival:
Relatively quick getting through customs and onto ground transport. Hotel was only about half an hour away. The $10 fee on arrival for a "tourist card" was a joke: you pay the $10, they give you a card, then a minute later another person scans it and takes it back! Bags came off quickly.

Our third floor "deluxe" room was large and well-appointed, clean and in good condition, with a nice view over the grounds and with the pool off in the distance. There was a fair-sized lanai with chairs and a small table. An umbrella in the room came in handy more than once. There was a safe in the room for valuables and a small fridge with some Coke, Sprite, beer and water

Restaurants and Bars:
The buffet was fabulous and the food was always fresh and appetizing. The presentation was great and the servers happy and attentive. We ate dinner in 3 of the 4 a-la-carte restaurants and they were all outstanding both in food and service. On most nights, at least one of them was not open for dinner. The pool bar and lobby bar were the ones we mainly used and they were fine, and relatively quiet. Our package included premium liquors which was a nice extra.

The one very large pool was fine for swimming or just ccoling off. Lots of lounge chairs and canopied "beds" both there and on the beach. The beach was outstanding and stretched as far as you could see in either direction. Nice hard sand for walking and good for swimming. The grounds were beatifully landscaped and decorated.

Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel: There always seemed to be something going on, aimed mostly at younger adults. There were off-site activities available, tours and trips, casinos, etc. but we did not check them out. A good feature was having free access to the facilities and restaurants of two other "next door" Princess hotels. Internet access for 20 minute time slots was available in the lobby at no charge.

The nightly entertainment is in the hotel lobby as there is no theatre on site. The performers are enthusiastic but it is not the best setting. You are free to attend the larger shows at the neighbouring Princess hotels.
