Presidential Suites Punta Cana
- What's Included
Our OpinionA great boutique resort for those who are wanting something different from the large all-inclusive resorts. The Presidential Suites is a quieter resort that still has the same amenities as a full scale resort. The resort is more suited for older clients, or travelers who wish to stay in a quieter resort.
The goodGreat staff all very friendly and aim to please. Shout outs to our lovely server Veronica at Carpe Diem Excellent service and always smiling while taking control of the dining room.Mike and Junior in VIP services were great always checking with me if there was anything I needed. Thanks guys.Our awesome Security Guard at the VIP beach JuanAlways there with a smile and a friendly greeting.The food at this resort is excellent. Had some of the best rack of lamb ever. Fillet Mignon was great as well.Beautiful pool and shout outs to the pool guys great jobThe Bad One of the Dudes with the hats I won't call him out on Trip advisor but when we turned him down we enjoyed dirty looks for the rest of our stay The guy needs a serious attitude adjustment.Sales staff hangs out in the halls in building three all day and have no desire to move out of the way when you are coming in.The Ugly Room 8201!! Do not accept this room under any circumstances it is directly behind the buffet restaurant and smells horrible in the room. Loud at six am when the garage is being collected two hour process.All in all we had a great vacation and would definitely.
Small resort, but Amazing entertainment from all the dancers, animators and great service as well... The good and alcohol selection really made the difference,And the friendly staff made the vacation a success
Came for the yearly girls trip. Joined the vacation club (LHVC) last year at Puerto Plata. Was given VIP access to everything except the Azul restaurant (that's for those heavily invested in the vacation lifestyle i.e. Chairmans club). Get to Punta Cana and learn yes, you're a member, but not member enough to go to the VIP restaurant on the property (Carpe Diem). So if you purchased the 2 year trial like I did, you're not going there. Anyway, back to the review. The people are very nice, helpful and seem to be always smiling. The facility, its not 5 star, more like 3.5. You get what you pay for. It's smaller than Puerto Plata, so it kind of limits the things to do. One beach bar, so come down early, stake your barstool territory and settle in. There's yoga and aerobics on the beach in the mornings (aerobics after a night of drinking is a sight to behold). The entertainment crew does its best to keep people entertained and happy. The bar personnel are interesting. On any given night you can order a drink from their specials menu and receive 3 different versions of the same drink. (Side note: will someone please invest in a bartenders guide for the bar? They're inexpensive) Ok, next up, the food choices. The typical allowance of 2 reservations per stay at Kimonos( Japanese), Basil & tomatoes( Italian) and buffet to cover the remaining days. We tried Kimonos. The food was good, multiple course staging, but don't come very hungry. You may end up walking over to the buffet for an after Japanese dinner chaser. If you eat like a bird, this is the place for you. We didn't try the Italian, but from what we saw people were satisfied with their choice. Here's my one buffet pet peeve. While seated at breakfast a maintenance person began painting the wall directly behind the food warmers that STILL had food in them. Seriously not cool. That's what after hours are for. Next, the beach. Was well kept (hey there's rains and tides to contend with). The resort maintained the beach. There's a VIP beach for members and the main one the red, gold and any other band that's not VIP. As usual the beach and buffet area is haunted by fedora capped stalkers trying to get you upgrade or join. A firm NO and they keep it moving. Here's the main thing about the beach, 20 paces either down beach or up beach be prepared to be assaulted by sales people. Tours, excursions, hair braiding, tattoos/henna, food, tee shirts, souvenirs.... did I miss anything?? The hair braiders,realizing I have no hair on my head switched to " You want a massage"?? Can't make this stuff up. Just have to be firm and don't slow down. Oh also, regarding the excursions sold on the beach, the prices are a fraction of those charged by the resorts. Shop carefully. All in all if you want a small place to hang at, lay around and drink then this is the place for you. It's basically get up, breakfast at the buffet, go on an excursion or lay on the beach, hit buffet for lunch or order snacks on the beach (try the London Bridge- fried grouper with fries...was pretty tasty), lay on the beach, fight off the salesperson, get ready for either your dinner reservation or back to the buffet. Yes it is becoming a pattern. Go figure. All I can say is try and enjoy the relaxation, make the bartender pour a double shot into every drink you order (just trust me on this), and make next years reservation in Puerto Plata.P.S.- Mamajuana is the devil😈
This hotel had excellent entertainment. The entertainment crew had 5 members (Happy Boy, Jefferson, Robinson, Manuel, and Castelin) who kept us busy and laughing throughout our stay. The shows they put on each night were great! The activities on the beach during the day were fun.
First off, this is NOT a four star resort. Two, maybe three at most. It's small, which is nice. Many of the suites face the driveways and parked cars. Luckily ours faced the smaller pool. Beach is very close to the suites but it's a very small beach. Plenty of chairs but good luck getting towels. A few activities during the day, volleyball, yoga, exercise, games. Evening movies, show, music, etc. Lots of shacks next door, not a very nice area. Expect to be bombarded with people selling stuff (boat rides, massages, hair braiding, bracelets, cigars) on the beach. Bar on the beach, a nice touch. Pools are very narrow and winding... not very good for lap swimming if there is anyone else in them. Buffet restaurant, food is just OK, lots of it. Overeating comes too easy. Service in buffet restaurant is somewhat lacking. Getting forks, drinks, napkins might take awhile when requested... or you might never get them. Ala-carte restaurants are OK, nothing special except the service is better.
