    Location 6.75 /10

    The Punta Cana Princess is located in the country's famous tourist resort, with its 25-mi stretch of beach, between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, on the south-east coast of the Dominican Republic. It stands in a large tropical garden with a mangrove, opposite Bavaro Beach, a three and a half hour's drive from the capital (127 miles), Santo Domingo, 2 hours from La Romana airport (65 miles) and half an hour from Punta Cana International Airport (14 miles).

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    The 270 guest rooms of the Punta Cana Princess are spacious (38 m²) and feature checkered tiled flooring and white walls with two works of naive art and Taíno motifs. They come with all the necessary amenities: air-conditioning, a ceiling fan, a large plasma-plasma screen and satellite TV (75 channels), a mini-bar fridge (re-stocked on a daily basis), tea and coffee-making facilities, a free electronic safe spacious enough to fit a laptop, cable Internet connection (for an extra charge), an iron and ironing board, and an umbrella. The colourful tones of the bedspread add a welcome tropical touch. Two steps lead down to the little sitting area, which includes a wooden coffee table, a TV set and a sofa-bed. All of the rooms include a wooden luggage rack with drawers, a desk, a mirror and a large balcony furnished with a small table and two white plastic chairs, affording a view of the garden (only a few rooms afford a sea view). Room service is available 24 hours a day. The bathroom includes a bathtub with a flexible shower head and handles, a laundry line, Princess hospitality products, a hair-dryer, a double wash basin, tissues, a make-up mirror, a phone and a toilet.
    The family rooms feature a king-sized bed and a separate room with two beds for the children.

    Overview 7.95 /10

    Opened in 2003 and renovated in 2009, the Punta Cana Princess shows great respect for its surroundings, as seen in the vast grounds that boast lush tropical vegetation (including a natural mangrove), and the numerous palm trees and coconut trees that cover the entire area all the way down to the beach. Peacocks can be seen strutting around the ponds, among the Travellers' Palms. The Metamorphosis spa occupies part of the neighbouring Tropical Princess, and boasts a clever layout among the pastoral exotic gardens (which feature fountains, ponds, waterfalls, stone bridges, etc.). It is open between 8:00am and 8:00pm and boasts 9 massage parlours, of which 3 are especially for couples (using cosmetic products from the German brand Babor), Vichy showers, a relaxation area, a sauna, Turkish baths and an outdoor jacuzzi. The reception area at the spa centre features a nice little fish tank. In addition, guests of the Punta Cana Princess may enjoy the facilities of the Metamorphosis mini-spa, which faces the beach and opens from 9:00am to 5:00pm. It includes a jacuzzi, two double cabins made from thatched straw, and a small garden where you can recline in a wooden deckchair with a mattress, in the shade of a mango tree. The guest rooms occupy five 2-storey buildings, brightly painted in dark pink, blue and Creole-style yellow. They feature red brickwork and palapas roofs, and are located along beautiful flower-lined paths dotted with Traveller's trees and featuring amazing Taíno sculptures (pelican- or turtle-shaped totems). The establishment also boasts a vast lagoon swimming pool that is designed to look like a beach and stays open from 9:00am to 9:00pm. You can also play volleyball here or enjoy various cocktails at its aquatic bar. The whole area is surrounded by a large solarium terrace with showers, towels, deckchairs with double mattresses, and palm-leaf parasols, making for a very calm and relaxed atmosphere.

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    The buffet restaurant has a capacity of 200 guests who dine under a large open palapas roof, to the sound of birds singing. Breakfast is served from 7:00am to 10:00am, lunch from 1:00pm to 3:00pm and dinner from 6:30pm to 10:00pm. It serves international cuisine with show cooking, and a different theme is put on every evening. The food is both good and varied, and is enjoyed to the sound of merengue music. Birds come and peck for bread crumbs, a reminder of the eminently natural character of this resort (where you'll also spot numerous butterflies, peacocks, geese and ducks). The Punta Cana Princess is also home to an Italian à la carte restaurant, a steakhouse, an à la carte Mediterranean restaurant with its nice wooden terrace on the beach, and a rather original restaurant in these tropical surroundings: The Petite Fondue, serving Swiss specialities! Cheese fondue, raclette, tartiflette (a French cheese-based dish), etc... an unexpected meal to enjoy in the Caribbean!
    It's also worth knowing that guests of the Punta Cana Princess are also allowed access to the restaurants of the next-door Caribe and Tropical Princess: Italian, Chinese, Mexican, Brazilian food, gourmet meals, seafood, a pancake restaurant and a restaurant serving local food; a 2-week stay should probably be enough to sample all the culinary offerings!

    Spa 7.7 /10

    Part of the neighbouring Tropical Princess, the Metamorphosis spa is well laid out in the pastoral exotic gardens (featuring fountains, ponds, waterfalls, stone bridges, etc.). Open from 8:00am and 8:00pm, it has two floors with 8 massage booths including three for couples (with products from the German Babor cosmetic brand), Vichy showers, a relaxation area, a sauna, a steam room and an outdoor Jacuzzi. The spa reception area has a charming little aquarium. Guests at the Punta Cana Princess have access to their own mini Metamorphosis spa facing the beach which is open from 9:00am to 5:00pm and is equipped with a Jacuzzi, two saunas, two double straw cabins and a small garden where they can relax on a wooden deckchair topped with a cushion in the shade of a mango tree.

    Beach 7.95 /10

    Bavaro beach is truly exceptional, protected by a natural coral reef. A turquoise blue lagoon, with crystal-clear water and a temperature of 28C°, fine white sand, and a few isolated coconut trees serving as natural parasols... it's hard not to fall in love with this mile or so of heavenly beach! It features a water sports centre that offers numerous activities from 9:00am to 5:00pm, or alternatively you can also enjoy a game of table tennis, beach volley and beach soccer. Massage huts with palm leaf roofs are also found on the beach which is also equipped showers, deckchairs, double mattresses and palm leaf parasols. A few pelicans circle above the beach and sometimes dive into the water for fish. Are you feeling a bit peckish? Just head for the beach bar for a snack or one of the many drinks on offer. It even has a barbecue. You can hear the sound of helicopters hovering in the sky above Punta Cana. The beach is supervised by lifeguards and a flag indicates the safety level for bathing (and it's often green!).

      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.

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).
