Ideally located on the beautiful beach of Punta Cana, the Eldorador Caribe Club is the superior version of its neighbour, the Tropical hotel. It offers all the benefits of a large resort but you must love the huge facilities, far away from the Dominican lifestyle. Seaside, just seaside.

    Location 6.75 /10

    Located in Punta Cana, the famous touristy resort of the country with its 25 miles of beaches, between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, on the southwest coast of the Dominican Republic, the Caribe Club is located on Bavaro Beach, 4 hours away from the capital, Santo Domingo, by road ( 155 miles ), 2 hours away from the airport of La Romana ( 65 miles ) and half an hour from the international airport of Punta Cana ( 13.7 miles ).

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The 355 rooms of the Caribe are distributed in 228 standard rooms, 115 suites, 5 Royales and 7 honeymoon suites. The distinctions are important here. The standard rooms ( or "superior rooms" ) are spacious ( 35 m² ) and very comfortable : air conditioning, a tropical fan, satellite TV, a fridge-bar included in the service, a marble bathroom with a bathtub, a hair dryer, a safe and a terrace. But you can't afford to be a clean freak.
    The suites and the Royales in the "VIP" building are nicely decorated with rattan furniture, a jacuzzi, are very spacious ( more than 40 m² ) and offer privileged service for customers for catering and massages. They literally exude cleanliness.
    The honeymoon suites are exceptional. Huge surface ( 50 m², at least ! ), a canopy bed, romantic furniture, all in white, with an area dedicated to the jacuzzi and many storage spaces. In this category, the duplex room, which is the same size on the upper floor than downstairs, is worthy of a five-star category.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    Opened in 1999, the Caribe has the merit to respect the environment of the site thanks to an immense park which includes a dense tropical vegetation and to many coconut trees down to the beach. The qualty spa centre is well-equipped, in the exotic gardens with a bucolic atmosphere ( fountains, ponds, stone bridge ... ). The rooms, shops and restaurants are housed in low buildings, brightly colored in a Creole style, with red bricks and palapas roofs. Nothing Dominican, however; the set looks more like a theme park or a cartoon village. It is a too bad that the reception area, the shops and the theatre are separated from the rest of the facility ( the rooms, the pools, the restaurants and the beach ). A small train takes the customers of the Caribe and the Tropical 24h a day, but its schedules vary. It takes about 10 to 15 minutes through a very dense vegetation.

    Food and drink 7.55 /10

    Seven restaurants are offered to the customers of the Caribe, but the variety is not always synonymous with quality. The main semi-open buffet is just like the hotel : immense. Fortunately, the tables are scattered in several rooms, but the atmosphere gets really noisy in the evening. The cuisine is good, not exceptional. With a modest size, the Italian, Chinese and Mexican restaurants serving a la carte ( with a reservation ) and the gastronomic restaurant ( extra charge ) are located side by side near the main swimming pool in air-conditioned rooms and non-smoking areas. El Rodizzio, the a la carte Brazilian restaurant, with a reservation, is located near the beach and serves quality cuisine. Semi-open, this restaurant-bar is a snack bar during the day. Our favourites are the Pescador, a bar-restaurant specializing in seafood, located just away on the beach ( extra charge ) and the Pilon, serving Dominican cuisine, for their picturesque atmosphere.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    The beach of the Caribe Club ( and of the Tropical ) is called Playa Bavaro, the most famous in Punta Cana. Translucent water, a wide strip of white, fine and clean sand, lined with many coconut trees : everything is there ! It extends far beyond the horizon and is shared by the neighbouring resorts and private properties. The beach of the Caribe hotel , located next to the swimming pool, provides deckchairs, sunshades and houses the water sports centre, which offers a wide range of activities.

    To know

    The Eldorador Caribe Club is a renowned hotel in Punta Cana. Along with the really close Tropical, it is part of a huge complex member of the Princess hotel chain. The entire complex has a total of 665 rooms. The Carib? houses 355 rooms, welcomes mainly French speaking clients and offers many services. Ideally located on the beach of Bavaro, one of the most beautiful beaches on the island, the hotel provides a wonderful setting for those looking for a true seaside resort. But you have to love giant hotel structures and the distance from the local lifestyle. Like the big resorts in Punta Cana, picturesque is not a priority here, despite a real effort paid to the facilities and the decoration of the Caribe. Its disadvantage : the remoteness of the reception area from the rest of the facility. It turns out to be hard to escape at any time for a stroll on foot around the facility. Without the help of the small train, it would take you half an hour to reach the rooms from the reception !

      The Punta Cana Princess caters for guests aged 18 and over and is not recommended for families. It enjoys a prime location on the magnificent Bavaro beach, and constitutes the quieter and more upscale end of a complex that also includes the Tropical Princess and the Eldorador Caribe Club Princess. Immersed in nature, this resort offers the all-inclusive formula and includes nine restaurants, a spa centre, a gym, numerous sports facilities, a kids' club, a nightclub and three swimming pools. In short, it's impossible to get bored here!

      The VIK Hotel Cayena Beach is the calm and exclusive part of the VIK Hotel Arena Blanca resort. Not too big but not too small, this haven of tranquillity, with 3 bars and a restaurant, is a genuine luxury in a region where each resort is bigger than the next. Guests at this friendly sized 24/7 all-inclusive resort have access to the facilities and services at the neighbouring Arena Blanca hotel, which include a spa, a gym, a casino, sports facilities, a kids club and an amphitheatre. In short, this is a small hotel when compared to the others in Punta Cana.

      A veritable resort, this upmarket paradise certainly wins the award for luxury in Punta Cana! The exclusive section of the Paradisus Palma Real, The Reserve at Paradisus Palma Real Resort is set back from the exquisite Bavaro Beach, 10 minutes away, but that's its only flaw (there has to be at least one). Highlights include the spacious, maximum comfort apartments, equipped with a kitchen and a terrace with a whirlpool bath, the superb spa, the fully equipped kids club, the free Internet access, and the gastronomy, with a special mention for the Japanese restaurant. Of course, guests also have access to the facilities at the Paradisus Palma Real.
