Punta Cana Resort & Club
Travel Blogs from Punta Cana
I love going to Punta Cana, its my favorite place in the Caribbean to just hang out and relax. Although I go regularly for business, there is always time for down time. When you see the pictures of the beaches an water, its easy to see why one can get hooked on coming here.
There is something about a week on the tropical island of the Dominican Republic that melts away all your inhibitions about life. Why in the United States do we allow so much stress and pressure infiltrate our daily lives? The people of the DR live in poverty, yet exhibit a peaceful, happy demeanor as they go about their day. I honestly could …
We got up earlier than we would have otherwise for the meeting at 9:30 with resort manager. We met with Selena again first, who tried to convince us the reason we had the wrong rate was that we'd been given the rates for their sister resort. That's when I got angry - our paperwork clearly had the Oasis Canoa name on it, and I felt she was blatantly …
Last night there was a very loud thunderstorm so didnt get much sleep, although Im glad I didn't experience anything like that when I was in Guaymate with the tin roof! Had breakfast and as there aren't many tables for everyone I shared it with the Argentinian couple from the tour. Got to chat to them more in Spanish, there were some things I didn't ...
Got up this morning for breakfast and they serve quite a lot - three different types of bread, jam, butter, ham, cheese, boiled egg, fruit (melon and pineapple), pineapple yoghurt and orange juice!
Then headed to the port area for the tour. We were a small group of 12 people (including me), of all nationalities. A family from Malaga, a couple from Argentina, another couple from Mexico and three women from Italy. We set off on a small ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Punta Cana Resort & Club
I absolutely loved it. The service was great, the property beautiful and food delightful. the beach is sooo pretty, the pool gorgeous, the staff waqs very helpful and the overall experience very elegant. Unlike the all inclusives that dominate Punta Cana this resort is not populated by the drunken and instead meets all of your needs without being intrusive. The all inclusives prove that when everything is free everything is worthless. This resort shows why paying for what you want is better. The P.B. Dye golf course is very fine with 5 beautiful ocean view holes- like the Teeth of Dog. The best thing about the place is that it is VERY inexpensive.
My fiancee and I just returned from a 6 night all-inclusive trip to Punta Cana Club and Resort. This was a GoGo Tours Package purchased through a travel agent. The resort has two types of accomodations.
The resort was great. The inclusive meals were not very good, nor were the non-inclusive restaurants. The restaurant upstairs in the main hotle building was the best by far and wasreasonably priced.
I stayed at the LTI in Punta Cana from 7/2-7/9. I booked through Atlas Vacations on the internet. It was a reasonable price for an all inclusive and i had never been to the DR before. I had a choice between this resort and the Sirenis resort and i chose lti because it was around the other resorts. The hotel grounds are really nice and it has a great location on the beach, the rooms are decent, however, i was there with my fiance and for the first 2 nights they had us in a room with 2 double beds pushed together. The third night we were able to move to room with a king size bed and ocean view. I am an american and most of the time I felt like my fiancee and me were the only ones there. This resort caters to Europeans mainly Germans. This is a warning for Americans booking this resort. The food-the main drawback to this hotel. There is alot of it its just really bad, i have been back home a week now and my stomach is still not back to normal. All the food just started tasting the same and the texture to the hamburger and hotdog meat was very unusual. The positives-the drinks were great, the ocean was beautiful, one of the best beaches i have ever been to. The excursions were great, we did the 4-wheeler safari through our hotel and that was great, horseback riding on the beach, and the bavaro splash snorkeling was great. This is an average resort probably a 3 star. My last 2 vacations were cruises and the food was excellent so it was hard to deal with the food being so bad. Despite the food, Punta Cana is great I highly reccomend it but if the quality of your food is important to you i would stay at another resort.
My wife and I and another couple stayed at LTI, one of 13 resorts along the Punta Cana beach area. the sun and sand was great, ocean water warmer than the large pool. The food was very good, lots of variety. They cater to mostly Euproean's. I like the different languages, and cultures. My wife had to have the doctor at the resort attend to her bad back. He was wonderful. Saved our trip. Smoking was a small issue but we ate at a no smoking area which was nice. Lot of people there but was spread out and didn't seem that crowded. Had to save chairs under umbrella's early, I got up 6:00 am. If you waited after breakfast, they were all gone. I would go threre agian. Lot of families, couples. Staff was nice. local workers spoke mostly spanish but managment people spoke 4-5, enough to get by. room was very clean. came back home driving in Maine in a blizzard and had to snow blow next day. what a shock.
This resort was large and beautiful and very laid back. It was no too crowded and was a great place to relax. The staff hardly speaks any English though so there was a slight problem with the language barrier. Front desk was not too helpful...had no hot water first night there and it took HOURS for them to come and fix it when all we wanted to do was shower and head to dinner. I was upset that they wouldn't just switch us to a new room...they insisted on fixing the problem right away...I would have been fine with this if it didn't take so long to fix.Food was mediocre...I suggest only going to the buffet for breakfast. Stay away from it at lunch and dinner as there is not much variety at all. I suggest the Beach Grill La Choza for lunch or Frank's Pizzeria by the pool. For dinner I suggest any of the a la carte restaurants. Anini (Dominican) was especially good.I would go back to this resort just for the beauty of it and the relaxation...definitely not for the food or good service though! Just be patient and remember you're on vacation...take it easy!
Low key holiday
We enjoyed our stay at the Punta Cana Beach resort. All was very quiet. If you rely on nightlife, this isn't the place for you. Uncrowded and enjoyable place to relax. Nice beach, decent room, good drinks, GREAT coffee, & generally helpful staff. Prepare to be patient as you have to wait for everything & be insistent to get what you want. If you are prepared to be patient and persistent, this is a great place to be. If you travel a cheap charter airline and arrive early morning be prepared to wait until at least noon for your room. Take a change of beach clothes in your carry on. They will store you luggage so you can hit the beach or the bar. Be prepared. If you are a coffee lover buy lots of it to bring home! You'll miss it once you leave.
Very personable resort
The veiw from our villa was beautiful, and we especially enjoyed the "common areas' that joined our living quarters -- very comfortable and relaxing. The front desk bent over backwards to get us the exact accommodatons we wanted. Though the staff could speak very little english, the key staffers could, and All the staff were more than willing to please. The food was quite good with a constant change in variety. Though the sun was intense, the constant breezes made the climate perfect for relaxation and contemplation.
My mother, my sister and I just returned from a wonderful vacation in Punta Cana Dominican Republic. We went through a vacation package company Vacation Express. It services mostly the south east. I think they did a wonderful job. Everything was taken care of. We booked this trip last minute ( two weeks before departure) and all of our documents came on time. We left from Atlanta. This is their new "home" base. The gate is international next to british airways. The crew was great. When we got to Punta Cana people were there with signs and directing you to the bus that took us to the resort. These people do speak english. The ride was a little scary. (fast and passing everybody) On the bus they tell you when to meet your rep at your hotel.
We loved our resent stay at LTI Beach resort in Punta Cana. The resort was small and comfortable and the staff were very friendly. Our room had an ocean view and was very clean and comfortable. We had purchased the VIP package and we did receive everything that was promised when we arrived. The food was adequate considering it was resort food served buffet style. We did not enjoy the A la Carte dinner and management should look at improving this aspect of the resort. The beach was glorious and words cannot describe the peaceful feeling you get while sitting on the white sand listening to the gentle surf hit the beach. The activity staff made you feel wecome but did not pressure you into doing any of the activities. We have travelled to a few other warm travel spots and feel that Punta Cana was the best so far in hospitality. The people of the Mexico should take a few lessons in making vacationers feel welcome. Thank you for a great vacation.
