Our Opinion

The Tropical Princess is a great resort for both families and couples. It's cleverly situated in a prime spot near the Bavaro Beach. It's a great location for those looking to walk along the beach shores. There are only three options available with regards to restaurants: the buffet, Brazilian and Dominican style cuisine. All of the restaurants are good in quality and serve fresh food. Good items available from the bar. There are also plenty of expeditions and activities to do throughout the resort. There's also free shuttle service to various shops and shopping centers are just a few minutes walk away.

At Tropical Princess, guest will enjoy the warm surroundings of beautiful gardens and villas tastefully decorated in true Caribbean colours. Savour delicious cuisine at every meal, stare at the bluest ocean water and pamper yourself in style... This superior hotel boasts one of the most complete wine collections in the Dominican Republic and offers great entertainment nightly. 

Location: Beachfront, adjacent to the Hodelpa Caribe Club and approximately 30 minutes from the airport.

Awesome vacation!

My friends and I visited this resort in the beginning of May. We had the best time. Food was awesome. Staff was great. Josh from France made everyone feel comfortable and accommodated all the French speaking tourists. He was very personable and genuinely interested in creating the best experience for his guests. Also loved Celestino! Overall great experience! Will definitely return!

Needs work!

We ended up staying here for one night when our Westjet flight was cancelled. I would never stay here again.This resort needs a lot of work in every regard-rooms, food, service, cleanliness...Perhaps the craziest thing was the flooding that made the walk from the main lobby to all rooms impassable. Even in the trolley the water was almost up over the wheels. Very scary!I guess if you want an el cheapo resort because you just want to sit on the beach then go for it, but overall I found this place sketchy.

Spend your hard earned cash somewhere else.

Overall our families were not impressed with this resort at all.Rooms: 1 out of 10. It was very run down. Many things broken. Food: 3 out of 10. It was okay. Mediocre selection. The beach side restaurant was almost always void of food and staff. Tough when your kids are hungry for an afternoon snack. Really frustrating.Staff: 8 out of 10. Most were very polite and helpful. Pools: 6 out of 10. 3 big pools to choose from. They were all cleaned daily. Lots of pool deck crumbling. Temps were nice.Beach and water: 7 out of 10. This would be higher except for the horrible towel service. Worst I have ever experienced. I was on vacation. Waiting hours for towels was a big waste of time that should have been spent enjoying the fantastic sand and refreshing ocean swims. The pour towel guy took a lot of abuse. I felt sorry for him. I waited politely because I knew it wasn't his fault. But many people were quite rude to him. Overall I will just say spend a little more money and stay somewhere else.
