Bavaro Princess or other recommendation

Hi all

We are normally regular visitors to the North coast of the DR but that is not available next year, so we are considering PC

I have looked at the Bavaro Princess and the reviews look good and I was looking for some feedback from anyone who has been

Are there any other hotels that are in this price range that are worth a look at ?

Tui seems to have dropped all Iberostar hotels around the world, so that is not an option as that was our favourite hotel in the North coast

Thanks in advance for your help

Bavaro Princess is a decent resort. I would not say it is up to the standards of Iberostar, but hardly a poor choice. You should enjoy your stay.

Cheers,

Bavaro Princess is a decent resort. I am guessing you have been to Iberostar Costa Dorada. We started going to DR and went to Puerta Plata several times and stayed at IB Costa Dorada twice and loved it. But we now have been to PC over a dozen times and have never gone back north since. Bavaro Princess is much larger than Costa Dorada but has great rooms , an awesome beach and great staff. Food was quite good. I think this would be a great place to see PC for first time.

Hi bobroswill

Yes we did stay at the ICD many times and loved it. From the UK after October,there are no more flights to the North with any carrier, so all the UK residents who love the DR will have to go to PC

In your opinion, are there any other resorts we could have a look at in the same price range ?

Thanks again for your reply

Hi Paul......I would have a look at Caribe Club Princess as well. More similar in size to ICD. Upgrade to VIP as it is affordable and you would find buildings and rooms similar to ICD. nice beach with several pools.

Ocean Blue is nice resort with great pools, but beach is not as nice and may not be good first resort to see the beautiful beaches of PC.

Palladium Resorts are awesome but is huge. You stay at one and play at three. Lots to do.

What are your wants in a resort?

I went to Bavaro Princess last December for the first time. I liked it a lot. It was definitely 'ME'. The grounds are quite beautiful. Similar to Paradisus, Iberostar Bavaro and Melia(individual buildings sitting on acres of tropical gardens) I am going back in September. Trying to get my uncle to go with me. It is a more quiet resort. Not a ton of nighttime entertainment as I recall, but I don't stay up late so that was not an issue. You won't find a better beach in Punta Cana. I enjoyed the food as well. The Majestic Elegance is going to have more entertainment (day and evening) and a WAY better looking lobby, but I like the beach better at the BP, cause the water is extra shallow. lol I can't say anything about the food at the Elegance because I haven't been there in years and food quality changes. Don't forget to look at the resorts' pictures on tripadvisor. Gives you an idea of the atmosphere.
