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.

Great Trip!

Myself and two friends went down for a week at the beginning of March. Upon arrival we were greeted by multiple smiling faces in the lobby. Our room wasn't quiet ready and had to wait a few minutes. Once ready, they brought us to our room which to our surprise had THREE beds in it (one for each of us) plus 2 bathrooms. The bedrooms were outdated yes, but we also were only sleeping in them. We had a new safe that had no issues and was able to fit all our personal belongings/documents. Entertainment throughout the day was always fun and outgoing. We enjoyed the entire team, however, chicken legs, Jerry and Rosa stuck out the most! Every day, all day they were outside engaging with everyone on the beach or at the pool!! They NEVER seemed to run out of energy! The nightly entertainment could use some work but the talent from ALL animation staff was amazing... How can Jerry move so fast!! Celestino and Leurys were always a great help with towels ... start us off fresh in the morning with smiling faces. When towels ran out, it wasn't long until the next load came and Celestino delivered with a smile. Meals were good, overall no big complaints. There is always going to be food you don't love but there was always something you could find that you would enjoy, yes, sometimes it was just the pizza! The bread every morning was an excellent start to the day with a HOT cup of coffee. All the staff in the buffet were exceptional ... remembered your drink order for all meals!! We met Rudy and Fran that were both wonderful. Overall, we had a great vacation that involved relaxing and some drinks served by the bartenders at the Sunken Bar!

Fabulous time because of the nexus tours rep.

First of all, this review is not so much for the resort itself. The food was mediocre but the rooms were clean. I paid $15 to be able to use the safe in the room,(yes, you have to pay) and they never showed up to unlock it so that I could use it! And to top it off, they would not refund my money.

The hotel is far from being a 4 star hotel.

The rooms smell and are very basic. It was nice to have several pools to choose from so we never have to fight for beach chairs, but they need to be maintained. The entertainment at this hotel is weak, especially for the kids. The food and staff at the restaurant were ok. I would definitely not rate this hotel a 4 star.

Loved it;)

A group of couples travelled from march 3-10 from Canada. This resort exceeded our expectations, and will definately will go back. The rooms are outdated but never spent a lot of time in our rooms only to sleep. Honestly every staff member any of us had encountered with were always happy and were always super nice. The buffet was great, always different themes each night, that we didn't even bother to book a la carte. The only bad thing I could really say is the night entertainment could be different, way too much of dancing would be better if had different things to get the crowd going. The drinks were always great, and beach was amazing!! Lots of people so you do have to get up early to put towels on beach chairs so you have one for that day. The pools were nice but we stayed on beach. There are lots of vendors on beach, but they just want you to see there stuff, and didn't find that they harassed people. When we got there, there were time share type ppl that were on us, but all they wanted was 15 mins to watch a video and then they left us alone the rest of time, when we told them we weren't interested however did look like a good deal as a lot of ppl were signing up for it. All and all it was a great trip for what we paid, met many new friends and all staff were great, too many names to mention. If you aren't super picky and go with an open mind you will love this resort. We have travelled many different areas and resorts, would go back to this resort;)
