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.
I am here now and having an amazing time!!! The workers are friendly and give excellent service. The variety of food selections are great!!! We also need several excursion that is worth the money. Our days are whining down, we will definitely miss the new friendships that we have made.
Just returned, and miss it so much! The facility is amazingly beautiful. Food was outstanding. The rooms were very nice and clean. All the staff takes a perfect care of you like you are part of their family. I hope the management at the Presidential Suites A Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Resort will recognize and reward Jefferson, Robinson, Manuel, and Yobeiri for making my vacation one to remember! The beach staff was excellent. I can't wait to go back!
I can thank enough to the staff for amazing vacation. All, from entertainment staff to the beach staff was excellent. The entertainment staff (Jefferson, Manuel, Castelin and Yoveiri) made our vacation be very funny. They are really nice people and very energetic.Great food, great beach, great rooms.
Great place to visit, beautiful beach, nice pool, delicious food and awesome staff. They were extremely attentive and very friendly and happy we were there. We really felt welcomed and facilities were top rate and very clean. (Unlimited hot water, high water pressure, American Cable T.V.) Our thanks to all the staff but especially to Yoveiri, the activity/entertainment, Jesus, waiter in Decadence, and Mary, beachfront bar, and the cabana boys, and everyone.
We went into this trip mostly on faith and what we saw from the listing when I booked through cheapcaribbean.com . What we found when we arrived was much better than we expected and continued for the most part. First, it was nice to be greeted on check in with a glass of champagne. Not used to that at all. Then, to be taken to our room after a quick check in process to find that while we booked a one bedroom unit, we were given a three bedroom suite. It was overwhelming. There was a method to their madness I found out and will get into soon. Still, it was a nice surprise.The facility is very nice on the eyes in all manners. It is a generally pleasant resort with a large and accommodating staff. While my Spanish is extremely limited, we had no communication difficulty anywhere with any of the staff during any interactions. They all knew enough English to make things easy for everybody. The lack of a decent inside bar was disappointing for times that weather would be a concern and the casino has extremely limited hours and seating, if one could call it a casino at all. The beach bar is small and at times, there was nos eating at the bar itself but there was ample seating around it at the tables.Now to cuisine. Nobody could complain that you couldn't get enough to eat at the Decadence buffet. There were many options at each meal and always more than enough for anyone coming away hungry to be too picky for their own good. The food quality was generally good, but it was weird at first to us that none of the entrees or sides tasted like what we were used to back home in any way. Every day was a different ethnic theme to the food and they missed the mark on "traditional" flavors. after we had the opportunity to talk to visitors to other resorts and they had the same comments, I came to the conclusion that it was a Dominican thing, not any fault of any of the resorts. Still, we were fairly satisfied with the cuisine. We were disappointed with the two by reservation restaurants, Kimonos and Basil & Tomatoes. The food could have been better and for Kiminos being touted as a Japanese restaurant, some of the menu items were obviously Chinese. They missed the mark on flavors here also by a long shot. Bringing in a couple of American or European chefs could make a big difference here overall, at least to train the chefs they have on staff.The entertainment staff they have is nothing short of first rate. They make you feel like you are friends, not tourists. Manuel, Robinson and the rest are just great. Top them off with Frank at the beach bar (waiter) and you have a top notch time in store. The nightly entertainment on the beach is worth the time spent enjoying it. The circus type acts the one night were just amazing.The main drawback as I see it is and the reason I cannot give this more than four stars is that this resort is part of a group called Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club. The price one pays for the great accommodations and often a good booking rate is having to hear their pitch to join their vacation club. Expect to be shanghaied the second day you are there by one of their tan shirted "tour guides" and handed off to a sales person who will expound on all the wonderful things their resorts have to offer and then the club itself. I'm not going to comment on the club itself or whether or not it is worth shelling out the money to join. You'll have to decide that for yourself. FYI, we didn't join. Now, have you figured out how we got our room upgraded?All in all, if you can deal with the sales pitch, and everyone who books through a travel site or agency will get it, this is a good choice for a vacation in Punta Cana. It was a cheaper choice than many of the other resorts in the Bavarro area when I shopped.
