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.
This is a converted apartment bldg. into a hotel. The good thing about this is the rooms are big, have kitchens, minimum two bedrooms, kitchen, and balcony. Just don't get the room by the tiny casino they have which is near the entrance to the hotel. The buffet is all we ate because I don't believe in wearing pants in a tropical resort. Buffet for the most part was good. The worst food they had was Italian night, this was absolutely horrible. The entertainment was decent, they worked on keeping everyone entertained and involved throughout the day by playing games and then at night for the shows. Since we came through our time-share, we had to pay $35 each way from the airport and then back. The one main problem we had was our room where my wife and I slept. The bathroom was attached and the bathroom for the week smelled like urine. It was like that the moment we got there. Other than that, had a great time, all inclusive, and we would definitely go back again.
We had a great stay at this resort for our first visit to Punta Cana in late May/early June 2017. We got a great deal through Cheap Caribbean which included our airfare from SFO and 5 nights at this All-inclusive resort. Reading prior reviews helped us be prepared for the good and bad and helped us have a great experience.Pros: Good location and nice little stretch of beach. I liked that it was a smaller resort because it was easy to leave the resort area and walk around town. Other resorts are so large, you need a taxi just to get out. Food at the main buffet (Decadence) was average to good (some things were great, others so so) but since all meals included it's a great value and the staff there are the BEST! We met many lovely people there working hard and wanting you to have a great vacation. Dinner at Kimonos was my favorite and Basil & Tomatoes was good but not as good as Kimonos. I was confused about booking the restaurants, I thought you had to book the day you wanted to dine, however you can book at the beginning of your trip for the entire week, so as soon as you arrive see the host/hostess at the guest service desk and get your reservations (you are allowed one visit to each restaurant per week). Staff at the front desk are also very nice and helpful. Rooms were nice and much larger than expected. Our 1-bedroom booking ended up being a two bedroom suite with a living/dining room, kitchen, laundry room. Each room had it's own full bath. It was easy to take advantage of the free drinks at the bar, in the restaurants and at the pools. Don't forget to try the mamajuana drink which is the local drink! The restaurant staff will even partake with you if you ask! The entertainment staff is also friendly and good. All the entertainment that we saw was good, except karaoke night was a bit boring. Cons: Based on prior reviews, I knew we would get approached to attend a resort presentation. We didn't want to waste precious vacation time in one of these so we made excuses and dodged the salespeople as best we could. Unfortunately they often hung out at the entrance to the buffet so this was hard to do but we managed. We also walked along the sides of the resort rather than through the center during the day. We booked several excursions (independently to save $) and had no issues with arranging pick ups at our resort. All in all a great value for what you get as long as you are prepared and plan accordingly.
It's been a while but we had a great time. Everything was clean .staff was great .food was good. And best of all was the beach. Very relaxing and staff was always checking to see if you needed drinks while lounging. The only thing I found negative were the time share people hounding you. I will return in the future.
A group of us girls stayed at this resort first part of august, and it was out first time in the Dominican. The staff here were outstanding, especially the entertainment staff, Jefferson, Perla and Happy Boy, they made our stay soooo much fun. The food was amazing, and the rest of the staff at this resort i cant say enough about how hard everyone worked to make our stay incredible. Santo at the beach bar, Franklin at Basil and Tomatoes and all the staff on the beach, hats off to everyone.
Completed a bunch of research and this looked like the perfect hotel. Flew in, presented my PREPAID hotel reservation only for them to tell me my room flooded 10 days ago so they are going to send me to another hotel. I'm in another country, not sure I have much choice but was upset that no one contacted me if it happened 10 days ago. Found out later, they were actually overbooked.I also had prepaid travel from the hotel to the airport. Since the new hotel they sent me to was in the middle of nowhere and further a way from the airport, I had to pay additional money to the transportation company.Not only would Presidential Suites not compensate me anything for the move to the other hotel, that I feel was lesser quality and not in the location I wanted, but would not reimburse me for the additional cost of transportation to the airport.
