Dominican Republic--Beaches and History

Through Apple Vacations and with the help of our travel agent, we were able to book a very good package deal to Punta Cana. For a little over $700, we had round trip airfare (from Chicago), transfers, and 5 nights in an all-inclusive resort. When staying on an island like the Dominican Republic or even in Mexico, I would highly recommend booking …

... end of the day, was amazing. It was a restaurant that only allows adults that are 19 years and older. So thank God we were above that age or else we wouldn't have been able to enter. But I really recommended this restaurant. The food was amazing and the environment was really nice.

Now, going to bed and waiting to leave tomorrow. :(

... Toronto to Punta Cana. So the pilots had to wait for a plane to arrive in Toronto. So they could fly the plane to come pick us up in Punta Cana.

OMG! So much work for one flight. So our flight was actually a whole day, if you calculate all the time that we spent at the airport and waiting for the plane. So it was about 7 AM when we arrived in Toronto on Sunday.

Sigh! The longest ride every. It felt longer than when I flew to Hong Kong. LOL!

But the rest of the day, I was just chilling with my friends by the beach and doing some of the free activities.

By night fall we had another "special dinner," it was the Mediterranean dinner. It was alright. It had seafood and pasta. Nothing really special.

Today is the outback trip. So our hotel is the last to be picked up for almost all the trips, so we could sleep in and not have to worry about missing our trip. Therefore, we are the last ones to be dropped off at the end of the day.

This outback trip is a whole day trip, I know whole day. It must be boring however, we did a lot of driving and a lot of looking. The trip includes alcohol of course, without alcohol how could we function. LOL! In addition, it also includes an ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Caribe Club Princess Beach Resort & Spa Punta Cana

    Awseome Resort

    from

    We just arrived home from the Hodlepa Caribe Club. We arrived on Feb 4 2003 and had an awesome time! We brought our 2 kids age 6 and 8, so we upgraded to the Caribe Suite--well worth the money. They are very clean and large. The maids came twice a day to make sure that we had enough towels, water, pepsi, and 7-up. NO face clothes though--bring your own! The grounds were beautiful and VERY clean!The Buffet was great with a large variety of different things--from Roast Turkey one night to roast beef another. There was also a pasta bar that was VERY good! The beach bar and grill had hamburgs, awesome hotdogs, pizza and pasta that you could get and bring to your chairs at the beach or the pool. Nobody in my family had any health problems and needed imodium--although some friends of our had MAJOR problems LOL. There are 3 large pools, my favoutite was the one with the swim-up bar! They are all very clean!The ocean was awesome! The kids had a blast riding the waves--which were quite high at times--and boogie boarding. It is VERY safe beacause there is NO under-tow, which I was a little concerned about for the kids sake. The beach is awesome too--You can walk for miles and NOT be bothered by the locals until you get to the flee-markets. They are VERY aggressive there! If you want to get your hair braided--DON'T do it on the resort! They wanted $70us to do mine--walk up the beach to the left just before the point. There is a lady there between 2 huts that sell lots of stuff--she only charged me $25us. And just a little warning--it took me 3.5 hours to take my braids out! We didn't go on any of the tours because they are VERY expensive--although I was told that the Outback Safari and the Coral Reef tours were WELL worth the $80us pp.If all you want to do is lounge around and relax--then THIS is the resort for you!This is a GREAT place to bring your kids to as it is VERY safe and there are LOTS of kids splashing around in the ocean or in the 3 pools. All in all, we had a FABULOUS time and we are planning to return next Feb for 2 weeks. HOLA HAPPY!

    Very clean and safe resort

    from

    We stayed at the Hodelpa Tropicale for one week the end of January with our 6 kids, ranging from 10 years old to 19 years old. The youngest ones had a great time, played on the beach and swam in the beautiful ocean alot. Unfortunately, there wasn't much to do for the older ones and they found themselves bored after only 3 days. The disco was a joke and the nightlife was a bit dissapointing. We spent alot of time in the lobby, which was beautiful and relaxing at night. THey had live entertainment most nights. The resort was very clean and we all felt very safe. There were plenty of bars everywhere and the pools were very clean and not too busy. However, if you wanted a chair by the pool or on the beach you had to get up at 6:30 to put your towels on them. If you are looking to take a side trip take lots of money with you, since most trips were $80 US a day/person. We took the Bavaria run and found it too expensive for what we got. The food was good and there was plenty of it. There were a lot of Germans and other European families and very few of the staff spoke any English at all. Service at the bars wasn't quick, but who's in a big hurry?? All in all, we had a great time and wouldn't hesitate to go back to Punta Cana!

    We loved the club

    from

    my girlfriend and i loved the club. very clean, well organized, friendly staff. highly recommended. food was good.

    Worth the trip....

    from

    My husband, 9 year old son and I spent 2 weeks at Hodelpa Caribe and overall enjoyed our visit there.

    Nice hotel but...

    from

    The Hodelpa was very nice, clean and well-planned. I particularly liked the pool being close to the beach and in fact everything was close, once you were at the hotel as opposed to the reception area. What was not good about the Hodelpa was the animation -- the animators were lacking in something maybe charm?. Also, although the food was varied and plentiful, the lack of a grill, like at lunch time or dinner, with, for example, fresh fish was disappointing. The food was buffet style and therefore lacked a certain freshness.

    Wonderful Place

    from

    My wife, two kids and I arrived at the Caribe Club on Christmas day after being turned down at the next door Paradisus (notwithstanding our fully confirmed reservation). Without any obligation, the Hodelpa's manager went out of his way to find us a room for our whole stay, even though the hotel was also fully booked. We had a fantastic time at the Caribe Club. The hotel is very clean, the grounds, installations and beach are all beautiful, the food is varied and good, all sports were included (my son and I could have windsurfs ready at any time), and the staff was extremely friendly. All of that at unbeatable prices. We are very glad things turned out that way and will definitely go back to this wonderful hotel.

    Some useful information

    from

    My friend and I just got back yesterday and we had a great vacation. I want to say that the resort is beautiful, the activities are terrific, and the beach is spectacular.

    We`re back from a great holiday

    from

    We just returned from a great holiday at the hodelpa caribe club. It was full of fun, adventure and relaxation. the people were very friendly and always singing and dancing, we found the resort to be very clean and it had plenty of excellent food and activities to choose from. It is located on a beautiful beach, and there was plenty of launge chairs available everyday. The grounds and gardens were so beautiful and well kept. We are are going back to this resort again and we highly recommend it to everyone.

    It was the best

    from

    This place was mad hot it was a beautiful place and a very nice place to fall in love with the man of of your dreams

    Just returned from a great holiday in Punta Cana

    from

    Punta Cana is very beautiful place to visit. The beaches are beautiful but wavy. As it is for the Hodelpa you get your money worth.

    The rooms are clean, big and modern. The food is good, a little repeative. The service is fine but at times a little slow, the same applies to other resorts in the DR concerning the service (I assume it's the heat).

    There is 5 specialty restaurants, 24 hour snack bar, buffet and Disco. Drinks are available 24 hours a day.

    Two huge pools and 1 kid pool. Three jacuzzis. All very clean.

    Overall a great 4 star resort I recommend to any one and we regret only staying for 1 week.
