Caribe Club Princess
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
The Caribe Club Princess is a good place for families that are looking for plenty of things to do in Punta Cana. A beautiful beach that has plenty places to lounge. There are small local shops that are set up a few minutes walk along the beach if you're looking for cheap, yet authentic souvenirs. Make sure to talk to the front staff about the beach activities that are available for the day. For those looking to do something adventurous, there are scuba and snorkeling expeditions available.
We booked this trip as a family of 4 ( my wife, 2 kids, and myself). We chose this resort because my wife and I have stayed at the sister property, Punta Cana Princess ( adults-only resort) in 2015 and 2016 and absolutely loved it. We ventured over to the Caribe Club Princess on our previous visits and it seemed like a very nice resort. We arrived around 4:30 pm and were pleasantly surprised that we had been upgraded to a family suite. Chwck-in was quick and we were taken to our room immediately. We had 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The rooms are a little dated, but we don't go on vacation to hang out in our room all day. The resort is beautiful. The staff is so friendly and accommodating. I have read some reviews with people complaining about rude staff, and the only thing I can figure is that these complainers are expecting to be pampered with 5-star service 24/7. The staff at this resort are incredible !My only complaint ( and this is no fault of the resort) are the HUGE amounts of clientele that are rude. The buffet lines were the worst. 15 people would be waiting in line for pasta and people would cut right in to the front of the line and hand their plate to the pasta chef. This was happening everywhere in the buffet. At one point, I witnessed a lady walk up to a child and rip the tongs out of his hand so she could serve herself ( and the lady and child obviously were not together). The line cutting happened in the shops, the lobby, the bars.......everywhere ! At one point, my wife protested to the pasta chef about a lady that walked straight to the front of the line, and he served the lady anyways, then became nasty to my wife.All in all, we had a great vacation. My suggestion is that the resort do something about the line jumpers. This was so bad that we literally dreaded going to meals, which is a shame because the food is very good.
We had a horrible stay this resort. The rooms were dirty, old, and outdated. Bathrooms were extremely disgusting with mold, rusted dirty fixtures, and dingy, thread-bare towels. It seems our sheets had not been changed from the prior guests as we were bitten the first two nights until we pulled the sheets off the bed and left on the floor to ensure the maid actually changed them. Another guest in our party was awakened by large Cockroaches in her room and mgmt simply said they could spray later. None of our ground floor patio doors locked (all were broken) and calls for service were either ignored or service was promised and no one ever showed up. Everyone also complained that food at this establishment, both at the buffet and restaurants, was flavorless & oversalted; also routinely served only lukewarm or cold whether you arrived early or late. Often plates on tables were returned untouched and a couple folks in our party left vomiting. This resort appears to spend a great deal of time on the front reception area and grounds maintenance for first impressions. Unfortunately, they spend almost nothing on repairs/maintenance of the rooms or the quality of food at this resort and it clearly shows. A thoroughly disappointing stay in Punta Cana!
I seriously couldn’t wait to write this review. I unfortunately had the opportunity to stay at Caribe Club Princess resorts recently for a friend’s wedding and this place was thee worst! This place is a true dump. Yes, the rooms are seriously dated, but even the quality of the furniture and the general aesthetic appearance of the rooms is damaged as well. Mysterious stains are everywhere! The pillows and sheets were dirty! Like, housekeeping couldn’t have possibly changed it! No way! The mini fridge had a half-bitten pizza crust lying in there! Like wtf?? But here was the kicker for me -- my first morning in my room I woke up to sooo many ROACHES. It was unreal! I opened my eyes and just saw something crawling on the floor, I got up to kill it and thought that was it. NOPE! There was another one crawling on the table. By this time I grab the phone to call guest services, guess what… As I’m holding the phone a huge cockroach crawls from crack that separates the headboard from the mattress, and crawls right on the pillow I just got up from!! I couldn’t believe my eyes. This is the 3rd roach within 2 minutes!! I was petrified! I ran out the room to get help. I managed to track down another guest for help, and thankfully, the guy helped me take my stuff out the room and into the hall. As we were grabbing my things, ANOTHER huge cockroach comes from behind the dresser! Ya’ll this is the 4th roach I’ve seen within 5 mins, and these were pretty large and disgusting. I so wish I wasn’t that afraid to a least capture pictures for you all. Another wedding guest mentioned a large roach in her room as well. She wasn’t as afraid of them like I was, but as a guest I shouldn’t see roaches at all. Nothing about that is okay. I went straight to guest services and they ended up switching my room, but I was just too terrified by what happened in my first room that I was too afraid to stay in the new room. I ended up crashing with another wedding guest in her room, which was in another building. I just totally wasted my money. The food wasn’t good, a few wedding guest actually got sick. Also there is a cat that roams around in the main dining/buffet area and it literally crawls in and out from underneath the tables. A few times it rubbed on my legs. I’m not use to having a cat run around in a public “restaurant” and nobody says anything about it. Apparently, it was normal for them. But I realized why the cat may have been there, I saw a few dead roaches on the floor scattered around the buffet. This was not acceptable to me. Also, it is a long walk from the hotel lobby to the main areas of the resorts (beach, pools, dining areas, and most rooms). And of course, the only place where there is wifi is in the LOBBY! (And the wifi connection sucks!) However, the resort does provide a shuttle, but it is almost pointless. It doesn’t come around often, and once it does come around, you basically have to quickly hop on and fight to get a seat because so many other people are waiting for it just like you. I hated this. The only thing positive was the beach, in which I was tempted to just be homeless and lay out there until my trip was over after the roach situation. All in all, I came for a friend’s wedding and I’m glad she enjoyed her wedding. But needless to say, I won’t be back. Good luck to those of you who choose to stay!
We have just returned from 2 weeks at this hotel. Rooms spacious clean but dated. Maid service very good. Bars all very good service very good. Lobby bar very busy but good service. Restaurants needed booking in advance our Fav was Mamma mia, main restaurant was good but breakfast disappointing . Pool areas good and clean. Beach lovely . All staff very friendly. All in all I would recommend.
Wont lie i was a bit worried about going cause it had been downgraded to a 3T. We had the holiday of a lifetime. As a same sex couple we were abit worried but we shouldnt have been everyone made us feel so welcome. The food did get a bit samey but always something that we could eat. The room we had was well cleaned the maid maria was so friendly came in each morning and gave us a kiss and cuddle. The trips we done were well organised. The pool was cleaned daily and we really couldnt fault it. So much so we are going back for our honeymoon
