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.

Love this Place

My husband and I went to Punta Cana Princess with another couple and had a BLAST. This is my 2nd time staying at one of the Princess resorts. My first visit was Tropical Princess and this time we was upgraded from Caribe Princess to Punta Cana Princess. The room was beautiful. The service was great. Alexander at guest services was friendly and very helpful. Yasmin works the bar area and we absolutely loved her!!! Staying in Punta Cana Princess we had access to Caribe Priness as well as Tropical Princess which was a plus. We visited Tropical Princess and got to see some workers who remembered us. De La Paz works the Beach Bar Area and he makes sure everything is to your satisfactory. Then the entertainment by the main pool at Tropical Princess/Caribe Princess was great as always. We was greeted byYuli/El Dolar which is our absolute favorite Animation guy. He's so full of life . He interacts with everyone and makes sure your really enjoying yourself. The activities the Animation crew do are definitely entertaining and fun. At night the shows in the Theater are awesome full of talent. We also stopped at the Arieto club which is on the premises for some great music and dancing. Can't wait to book the next trip back. Thank you to All Princess hotels for the hospitality and memorable vacation .

The Princess is getting old and tired.

This resort has great assets but also some liabilities.The Pros: Beautiful gardens and mangrove meticulously maintained by skillful gardeners.Three pools, one for party animals,one for normal folks and one for the kids.Restaurants: The buffet is good, offering a variety of food from all parts of the world.Dominican El Pilon and Brazilian Rodizzio met or exceeded our expectations. They were complimentary. El Sombrero Mexican Restaurant was superb for the food, music and general ambiance. It's worth the surcharge of $US 11.00 per person. Mama Mia Italian Restaurant was just OK . We did not want to pay any surcharge for chinese food at the Shangay Restaurant.Entertainment: The nightly shows at Teatro Serenata were very good. We had a great time watching the very dynamic performers in their beautiful costumes.Beach: Beautiful white sandy beach but a lot of algae at this time of the year. It was cleaned every morning by the hotel gardeners.La Creperie: Great little place for ice cream ,capuccino and expresso but the crepe was a bit hard.Bars: all the bars were Ok but we liked particularly the Canoa Bar at the Rodizzio. It was quiet and the nice breeze from the ocean was definitely a great plus.The Cons:The air condition in the rooms was noisy and leaking and we had to wait until 4p.m. the next day to have another room. Management should look at this seriously. The bathroom was poorly equipped in face towels and it took a few calls to get such a little problem fixed.What we noticed is the poor customer service from management. We used Extension 5000 for assistance but the response was poor, to say the least. We never saw someone from Management talking to customers to enquire whether they were satisfied.Royal Holiday presence on the premises: Royal Holiday has a bad reputation and I know it from personal experience.

Amazing animation and great hotel staff!

We stayed at Tropical Princess in June 2017. It was the first time ever to stay at all-inclusive hotel and before that trip I didn't know what to expect. But we really had a great time there! I'd better say it exceeded all my expectations. I cannot not to mention about the food. I have a gluten intolerance so I was afraid that there wouldn't be so much for me to eat but I didn't face any problems. For example, in the morning I had a very tasty omelette with cheese :) I must say that guy did a great job by cooking omelettes so fast so the time in a line was quite short. At the lunch time I had some rice with chicken or fish and my sister enjoyed her pizza or pasta :) And of course fresh fruits! I miss those taste pineapples a lot. All restaurant staff were very welcoming. I think that all depends on you. If you're opened to others you won't wait too long for coffee ;)Of course you shouldn't expect great and cozy rooms there. But we had a nice and clean room so we didn't care about how old it was. We had a hot water, our fridge always was well equipped with bottles of water and the room service changed our towels mostly on a daily basis. So I cannot complain. The best thing was the animation team! They brought so much joy and happiness to our vacation! All those activities were different every day and we enjoyed a lot especially dancing on the beach or near by the pool! Danza Kuduro! On my last night I participated in a small conferencier challenge and unexpectedly won some prizes. But the most important thing is not prizes but such great emotions I got! And of course the show that night was awesome! Jerry, Rosa, Nicole, Nelson and others did such an amazing job! Thank you guys!

Fair not great

The property is beautiful. Truly a tropical paradise. We were booked at Tropical Princess but was moved to Caribe Princess when we expressed concern for the a/c after reading many reviews. The staff and customer service was awesome!!! Everyone was very nice. Biggest complaint was the food. There was plenty of it just poor quality.
