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.
My husband and I spent 10 wonderful days there and loved they were a smaller resort and got to know other couples easier in addition to the staff. We have done all-inclusive at other places and condos/timeshares and was one of the better ones for things to do. We would come back here due to the staff and their professionalism. Not very strong English speaking staff but, I expect this as a foreign traveler and loved the fact I could experience a cultural experience other than American. There are many foreign travelers from Russia, France, Canada, Chile, etc. I loved it! I knew going in the room was the least of my concerns as I wanted to be outside enjoying the weather from the frigid temps and was decently decorated like the pictures. We tipped each time we got a drink, the wait staff at the restaurans, cabana workers, housekeeping, and etc. They were fantastic! We stayed in a 2 bedroom 3107. Clean and no smells, bug infestations, or any other concerns. Juan a server on the beach, Jesille at Spirits bar, and ALL the entertainers were top notch keeping you busy. We did see get asked to do a tour. We were escorted into the sales area where less than 10 minutes was taken to explain no to us wanting to buy. They never did ask us again. We were polite as opposed to a guy we saw go off on the sales person at a different table. If you are in the front rows on the beach you will be asked to buy stuff; but, past the flag poles and back by the volleyball area they did not come up. We booked our taxi through Punta Cana Best Excursions that was cheaper than the resort, on time, and not cramped in a clean vehicle. There are vendors to the left of the resort that will hound you if you walk the beach but, say no and keep walking if you do not want to shop. The resort activities are plentiful and fun. There are some vendors that will set up on the resort (this happens in some other resorts, too) and they did not touch, hound us when we walked by and said no while we kept walking. The restaurants were great. We booked excursions off the resort and had a great time. We befriended a few other couples that booked through the resort and had fantastic excursions, also without any complaints. If you go in expecting a 5 star resort in fine/extravagant settings this is not it. If you want a budget friendly, clean, fun, mid-level at a fantastic economic price this is for you. Best analogy is this is a nice Chevy Malibu/Ford Fusion for all-inclusive vs BMW/Benz.
The entertainment crew are exceptional at Presidential Suites. They make the resort with activities during the day and nightly shows. A huge shout out to Mini Me, Mr. Jefferson, Chupi Chupi, Melvin and Castilin! Cheers, Keith
I read a lot of reviews about this place and was very skeptical going in. We booked 2 3 bedroom suites since there was 17 of us traveling. Unfortunately when we got there they only had one 3 bedroom for us and then gave us 2 2 bedrooms. After situating that they then tried to pull a fast one and give us a 1 bedroom and a 2 rather than 2 2 bedrooms and tried to charge us an additional 1200 for a New Year’s Eve part that we already paid for. We did eventually get this all sorted out and did not make a big deal out of it because we were there to have fun. Most of the staff is friendly but there is not a lot of English speakers (which is fine because we are in a foreign country) they do work off tips unfortunately so for better service you might tip more. The rooms were nice nothing over the top the beds weren’t super comfortable but we didn’t mind because we were hardly in our rooms. The food at the buffet was delicious and different every day! We only ate at one restaurant there and I would say it’s not really worth bothering with since the buffet will include that food one of the nights. Now the buffet is family style so if you don’t like that then just avoid it don’t complain about it. The bar tenders were great, Santo at the beach bar became a good buddy of ours. The beaches were clean and comfortable and with 17 of us we didn’t find it hard to get comfortable seating. The staff will be constantly trying to get people together for games and activities like beach volleyball and dance competitions. There are beach vendors that will bug the hell out of you if you walk off of the property since they are not allowed on it. It’s how they make their money so I get it, just be very stern do not worry about being rude just say no and keep walking. Overall it was a fun trip, there were a few hiccups but nothing that can’t be easily looked passed. This is a decent hotel for a family get away. If you are looking for a luxury get away or a couples retreat I will tell you that this place is not for you and I strongly suggest finding a different place. This place is all about having fun and partying because the party literally does not stop. Tons of stuff for family and kids and groups, very little romance or get away. If you want to do an excursion just do it through the front desk, the beach vendors were constantly getting yelled at because they were booking trips and then never showing up. I hope this helps and for those reading reviews please remember everyone responds to things differently, it’s all about your intentions going in. If I had want a couples get away then I would have hated this place and been upset but we literally came here with all 5 of my siblings and their spouses and my parents and aunt and Uncle to literally party the week away and that’s what we got.
I don’t even know where to begin with this ,,this was the best vacation that I have ever had, the food was amazing everything here was great but there is one thing I liked the most and that was the entertainment people especially Jefferson and Ricardo they were so funny and acted like they wanted to be here there were always constant activities if they didn’t have an entertainment crew this place would be so boring i mean it is great in all but the entertainment made the place so much better and they are so nice to all the guests it is incredible they had events each night had different food each night and this made me really want to come back and I never want to leave because I will miss the people so much and they also had all the great activities you could sign up for such as parasailing and tubing lots more but I have to say again the entertainment people were the nicest people I have ever met especially Ricardo and Jefferson and they acted like they wanted to be here and had fun with there jobs
I am surprised this resort does not get better ratings. We were a family of six including a baby. We booked an all-inclusive stay (my first). The airport was chaotic and the welcome sign said "Lifestyles", not our name or Presidential Suites. However, once we were found, we had a shuttle to the hotel where we were checked-in cheerfully and efficiently despite being 6 of 300 guests. We were given a drink and an armband. Never did we have to pay for anything after that. We found that tips helped find us a cabana each day, though. The food was of excellent quality--lots of fresh fruit and seafood. We booked 2 dinners at the restaurants and recommend doing this on the first day. The other meals were all buffet style and the lines long, but the food was different every day and the staff were attentive. The wine was poor but the tropical drinks were many and tasty. The baby was an ambassador for getting us cooing staff and great service. We walked the beach to the souveigner shops. All our services we booked through the hotel and ignored the hawkers. Be prepared to bargain for prices in the shops: the custom here as in many countries. The people are very accommodating and well-trained.
