Spring get away


Trip to Punta Cana

This was a last minute trip made three days before the flight so we had to fly to Toronto to catch the flight since Halifax was sold out. Luckily Airmiles had tickets to Toronto saving us that cost. Only 2000 Airmiles plus $200 taxes.

Drive to the resort was on their new 4 lane highway making it a smooth fast drive.

The reception staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The resort is ultra chic with everything very modern. There are lights under the bed giving a soft glow and modern photos everywhere, mainly of girls with tattoo sayings like love, joy etc.

Lunch was great. Excellent quality and lots to pick from. The buffet area is next to the beach so you can watch the ocean as you eat.

The Italian restaurant was not setup as I would expect. It looked a little bit like a cafeteria and no views of anything. The buffet is a lot more impressive looking with an ocean view.

The beach was wide and mostly clean of seaweed. It was very windy when we were there but very refreshing.

You can walk down the beach to the Dreams and Excellence resorts.

The resort has a lot of little steps 3" high that you need to watch out or you will trip on them.

They promote the diamond club and rooms a lot and even have some one at each building to ask you if you saw the diamond club rooms yet. Just say yes and keep going.

They don't have the entertainment that you usually have at DR resorts and that's ok, you get a little tired of the lip sync acts.

The last night they had a Michael Jackson with two 60's style 'laugh in' looking girls doing dancing with rock etc. Everyone was dancing and having a great time. They should do this every night.
