Puerto Plata Village
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Our OpinionA lower rated hotel but not a bad choice if you are on a budget. The Puerto Plata Village is not on the beach but is located in the Playa Dorada Complex. Good for couples and singles on a budget.
Location: 5 minutes walk to the beach, 25 minutes from Gregorio Luperon International Airport, 10 minutes to Puerto Plata.
I have written constructive reviews before so here goes.This hotel/complex looks stunning on the approach. small chalettes, bunggalowes, room blocks...etc check in is slow and unless you speak English u r screwed.1st room was damp and there was no plug sockets or water or bedding2nd room....the front door didn't fit. no water......at all...cold or hotThe entertainment "crew" spent all day getting drunk. No one in this hotel gives a shi*t about the guests. AVOID AVOID AVOID AVOIDI really cannot implore people to avoid this place enough
We spent two weeks at this resort and the employees are great, the food is good and our room was clean. We had warm water to shower and the air conditioner worked. The beach bar was good and the weather and beach met our expectations as we have been to the Dominican many times. Could the buildings use some work, yes they can but we go to escape from the snow, enjoy the people and the beach not to sit in our room. In fact we are returning again in January 2018.
Me , My husband, and our two children stayed here for two days. The room wasn't as new and nice as the pictures. Definitely time for new furniture. But We grinned and bared that fact. There is a lot to keep busy, pool is nice, basketball court, cute playground, 'entertainment ' at night . Food was fine, a good amount to choose from, servers were amiable enough. They allowed us to feed the cats our leftovers. Who ever are nice to cats are O.K. in my book. The Guards when entering were nice too. I like to speak different languages, tHey didn't know I was saying thank you in portugueše 😐😐The beach that is accross the street was soo fun, They served lunch there so we didnt have to go back to the cafeteria. They had a volley ball competition, They had a beach party at night , was fun too.meven though we dont dance or drink. Still was fun to watch the bon fire they did. There were a lot of locals staying here which was cool, They you have their way of being , a little loud, yelling at the kids , and telling insulting jokes. But I am used to it, I been around american dominicans much of my life.
THIS IS AN HONEST REVIEW. THE PICS BELOW TAKEN IN THE HOTEL ROOMThis was a nightmare vacation (hotel perspective) we do two vacations every year & this was the worst ever.Food was always the same, same fruit, same 2 kind of cheese and same stupid cake every dayThe room! I took pics for people who are interested of seeing how much defect. tv was missing the connection wire & when you try to call, the tel has no line, so you have to go in person to complain. they bring the wire and expect you to tip them for bringing what is suppose to be there in the first place (sounds like done on purpose to get tip).we had to wait in the lobby so they can get the room ready, i have never sweat that much in my life, no A/C and the irony, the A/C in the room was freezing & no control to adjust.the swimming pool paint was peeling, no chlorine, smells, and the night show disaster. everything looked like was run by kids.drinks were no problem, lots of liquor, but no one knows how to do the right drink.The safe in the rooms had no lock or anything to hold it closed, we had to carry our passports, wallets, cell phones etc with us to the beach.the beach was good, thats why i gave them the star, other wise, would be zero stargetting into the country, you get to pay $10 visa entry and getting out they charge another $20 exit visa (day light robbery). we had canadian dollars, they exchange them to pesos and then exchange them again to US $ for the visa, rip you off twice for the same exchange and they do not accept their own currency, only US $.NO MORE CABARATE, NO MORE PUERTO PLATA, NO MORE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
This was truly the worst hotel I've ever been to in my entire life, and it's because of this:-Food was always the same.-My room was really old fashioned, tv was of this old ones, and my room had SO much humidity that it was frustrating being inside it if I wasn't just going to sleep. Also, the bed had grains of sand inside the sheets the first night I slept there.-The night show SUCKED, and they were a lot of mosquitoes flying around our feet. Anyways, the guys who were presenting were one of the only good things about this. They were really nice people.-They were only like 5 options of drinks.-When I walked by the side of the pool it smelled a lot like pee, and from time to time it smelled like poo too, unbelievable.-The pool bar smelled horrible, we had to tell the guys who were serving to clean it up because it was annoying everyone!-The door of the rooms were not secure. I think that the only thing I liked about that trashy place was the beach, and probably it was because it wasn't inside the hotel, Jeez...As some people say, the cost of going cheap is expensive.Sure I will never stay in that place never again in my life.
