Hello,

Does anyone knows the price of the PCR Covid Test at TRS Turquesa, and how much time until we have the results?

We will arrive on May 31, and need to have a negative test 72h-48h before we can return home to Portugal.

Many Thanks in advance.

https://www.palladiumhotelgroup.com/en/free-covid-test-to-travel Did you check the website? That is where I found the information. It says that it is $140 USD. Contact the hotel for sure to find out the timeframe of getting the results back.

That is an antigen test...not a PCR.

Good to see you back on the forums. Hope all is well.

Not returning to Samana this trip?

Have a great holiday.

@Cat S - Many Thanks for the information... miss that in the site... I'll contact the hotel to find out the timeframe of getting the results back.

@PuntaCanaMike - Thanks also for the information but as QueenCB said is the Complimentary COVID-19, or the antigen test. They offer that one at the hotel, but i need the PCR one to enter again in my country... It's a bull***t but it's what my government asks even for national citizens.

@steeeve - All is fine down here in sunny Portugal, hope you and your loved ones are also okay in the middle of this pandemic.

Impossible to get to Samana this year... No direct charter flight, you know we're a very small country and the Airbus A330-300 of the Orbest Airlines takes 388 passengers and with almost no demand this year just direct flights to Punta Cana and Cancun. Also no Jamaica this year, because that was a round around flight: Lisbon / Samana / Montego Bay /Samana / Lisbon.

Also Bahia Principe Luxury Samana is closed and Bahia Principe Luxury Cayo Levantado is still not AO.

As you know i just travel to AO resorts and this year i'll try TRS Turquesa of the Palladium Hotel Group because have found a very good deal here and i trust it's far more upscale that Bahia Principe Luxury Ambar.

I don't have budget to Iberostar Grand Bavaro, Secrets Cap Cana Resort & Spa All Inclusive Adults Only or Sanctuary Cap Cana for example. So... let's see how will go...

I have stayed at theTRS many times and it is a great spot. My favourite of course is CL and we tried it when it went family. It wasn’t too bad .

With Luxury Bahia Samaná their I would go there depending on the time of year. Still prefer Samaná a it is quieter and no mega resorts.

Stay safe and enjoy your vacation.

Great to know that you've been there many times and that you've liked it... We also expect to like it... Although is part of a mega resort i trust that this AO section will be quiet and that we can have a relax & silent vacation.

Yes, Bahia Principe Luxury Samana is also my 1st option, small and quieter but as you say depends on the time of the year. I'm very sad because i trust that they will never revert Bahia Principe Luxury Cayo Levantado to AO again. That was by far for me the best place i've been with my wife in DR... So, so many good memories of that stay there...

Also stay safe.
