opinions on punta cana?
Posted 26 May 2009 - 08:04 PM
I know I just need to stop looking at reviews but, its so hard to do! lol
So, main complaints people keep saying are:
1. the food isn't good?
2. it's a long drive thats bumpy and scary?
3. the beaches aren't nice?
Maybe these people had too high of expectations or weren't aware of what they were getting themselves into, I dunno.
For any that have been to the area or have been married there, can you share your opinions? I know things are different depending on the resort, but I'm just curious of other brides opinions.
Thanks in advance!

2. It takes 30 minutes by a bus or about 20min by taxi(about $30-40) to most resorts in punta cana.
The ride is not worse than any other place.
3. Punta Cana is considered to have 1 of top 5 beaches in the Caribbean actually! I also found them better than Mexican. Not as good as Thailand or Aruba though...

The food is not like home.. but you certainly dont starve! I'm also super picky so for me to say that means alot. I don't eat seafood but my boyfriend LOVED all of the seafood he had down there. In reality, you don't go on vacation to eat food just like home!
The roads are not great but the drive is not super long or bad.. its nice to the country and you're there before you know it!
The beaches are unbelievable! I honestly think it's one of the most underrated places to go!
I have tons of pictures of my last two trips.. one to Dreams Punta Cana and one to the Grand Palladium Punta Cana. I'd be happy to send them.. if you want just PM me your email.

I guess it's hard to give an opinion about the whole country, but that resort was awesome!
And the ride wasn't THAT bad! Those drivers do that drive every day so they know what they're doing!
There's a reason that the DR has become such a desirable destination over the last few years-- check it out, you'll see!

The ride to the resorts is basically like it is anywhere in the Caribbean. There are a lot of speed bumps, there are little to no traffic rules but I wouldn't say it is scary. Especially because most of the time your transfers are in big busses.
The beaches are some of the best I have seen in the area. The only better being some of the small islands like St Lucia.
