Arrival: May 8-16/2009
Upon our arrival at the hotel we were eagerly met at the reception. Because I was already in the Domincan to meet up with the boyfriend we had not reserved the hotel yet. We had booked the wedding package online 3 months earlier, so the reception was expecting my relatives who were flying in the next day from Canada. The people at reception worked with us to get us the 'Penthouse' honeymoon suite and they made all the room reservations for my husband-to-be's dominican family that would be coming for three days. We had no problems getting everything all set up. We were also told when we would be meeting with the wedding coordinator the next day.

Rooms:
We were very happy with our two floor honeymoon suite. Granted we were in the older building but the room was still immaculate.We had a huge canopy bed, sunken lounge/TV area and the second floor had another lounge area with a hot tub. We overlooked the pool and the ocean. What a great view! We had balconies on both floors. There were fruit baskets and bottles of rum delivered daily.
My family and my husbands family's rooms were across the pool from us in the newer building. The locks were broken on the sliding doors in two of the rooms, but as the rooms were on the second floor no one was to worried. Though my father did mention that their room faced another resort and below their balcony was a cart path for the motorized carts that delivered food and drinks to the beach bars and he could here these carts running all night along with the staff standing not too far away drinking and smoking while on their breaks at the beach bar. Though all around we didn't really have much to complain about. Everything was very clean!

Restaurants and Bars:
This resort is not as big as others, so there are not as many a la cart restaurants and the buffet gets old really quickly. We definitely liked the chinese restaurant (which served sushi!) and the portuguese grill. The crepe cafe is NOT good. The bars served the typical domestic drinks and most of us drank their version of champagne for most of the trip. Their champagne is very light tasting and we managed to get pink champagne a few times as well.

Beach/Pools/Grounds:
Beach was GORGEOUS! I love Punta Cana for this very reason and we all loved the beach. Lots of beach chairs, lots of space (read-no crowding,) not too many vendors and sun sun sun. The beach is soft white clean sand and the water is turquoise. We spent a lot of time playing in the pool while my husband's family was there, we even taught my new nephew how to swim. The water wasn't the cleanest in the pool, but oh well.

Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel::
We went on one of the go-cart tours. I would not recommend these tours as we didn't really think we got our money's worth and these so-called go-carts weren't what I would call safe. We drove on a lot of the main roads and with the way the locals drive around, it can be really scary, especially as there are not traffic laws and no 'left' and 'right' sides of the road, just you and other drivers trying to pass everyone. We did get to see Macao beach which is a beautiful undeveloped beach. It was too bad they only take you there to try and hawk you cheap jewelry and you don't really get to enjoy the beach. It would have been more fun driving around the beaches.
My dad and husband went deep sea fishing but it was really rough and everyone got sea-sick. My husband said 'first and last time for that!"

Other Comments:
Our whole purpose for this trip was to get married and our wedding day could not have been more perfect. Francelia is the wedding coordinator for all the princess resorts and she is FANTASTIC! She took care of absolutely everything. We met with her once and she went over how the ceremony would come together. She went over the package we picked, flower we wanted (i told her to pick them for me) where we wanted the reception, ceremony on the beach, etc. We didn't have to do anything!
The day of the wedding my friend and I went to the salon to get my hair done. The stylist did a great job. I headed back to my room to get ready. My mom and sister and friend came up and we all got ready together. My bouquet arrived and then the photographer came up about 20 minutes before the 2pm ceremony and got some great pictures in room. Then at 2pm, fashionably late we all went downstairs to the waiting golf cart to take us to the beach. They had decorated the golf cart with tropical flowers. They droves us around the pool to the edge of the beach. Francelia met me there with a bunch of tissues as we pulled up, as I welled up, just before I walked down the aisle with my dad. They set up chairs on the beach and made a trellis out of palm leaves, where my fiancee was waiting with the ocean in the background and the sun shining down on us. The ceremony was quick (10 minutes) in spanish for my husband's family and in english for mine. We had no official wedding party as our wedding was small. I did not realize at the time, but during the ceremony a large crowd had gathered to watch our wedding take place. When I look back now at the pictures taken it seems that everyone staying at the resort was standing there in their bathing suits watching us. The wedding photographers and hotel security did a great job to make they kept everyone out of the wedding photos. After the ceremony we had champagne toast and we took some pictures with the cake, (how that cake did not melt in the Dominican sun is beyond me!) then we walked down the beach and took some more pictures. My sister ran back to the beach bar and got the photographer a bunch of beers so he took way more pictures than we was supposed to. We even got some pictures taken around the pool and in the gardens. The reception was held at the portuguese grill restaurant. They walk around with huge skewers of meat and slice it off the skewer onto your plate. Because there was only 17 of us, we didn't have a private party, but dinner was excellent though we were kicked out of the restaurant at 8:30 after we had cake because there had another dinner seating. My husband was very annoyed by this and we ended getting more rum to our room and reservations at the a la carte for the rest of the week and some free massages. I was actually happy to take my wedding dress off after that dinner, we were all stuffed! All in all a great day! The wedding pictures were fantastic when we got them back. Any people that had somehow snuck into the pics were magically airbrushed out and we got the Photo Shop photo album as a wedding gift from my dad and it's one of the best wedding albums I have ever seen. When most people see it, they can't believe how well it turned out. All in all, GREAT vacation and magical wedding. Definitely the way to go if you don't want to plan a wedding! Thanks for reading:)

This was an awesome resort to stay at!! The place was clean, modern and well-kept, service was fast and good. They make you feel like royalty here! There were so many activities to do, and the activity leaders were fun, animated and great to talk with. We stayed for 8 days and had no need to leave the resort (other than the disco and casino just down the road). We could have spent another 8 days and not been bored. There were activities for kids and adults alike. While boating along the coast we noticed that none of the other resorts seemed to have the fun beach activities that the Caribe Princess did - this resort always had fun activities lead by the 'animacion' team and beach music - it was like a beach party almost all day everyday! This was for sure one of the best resorts in Punta Cana!

I'm definitely bringing my entire family next November and my common-law spouse and I were so impressed with the resort that we forgot all about our plans to check out other resorts for our wedding next year. Because of the great service, atmosphere and people here we will be getting married at this resort next year.


** I'm not sure why some people are complaining about the weather or flights as these seem totally unapplicable to the resort itself, AND while here no-one once asked me for a tip - possibly if you go off the resort to the stores you will be asked for tips but definitely not while within the resort grounds**

Arrival:
Service was great, we arrived early and they got us our wristbands quickly and let eat at the main restaurant and roam around the resort until our room was ready.

Rooms:
Clean, bright, modern, air conditioned. Serviced every day, fridge refilled every day with water and pops.

Restaurants and Bars:
Always good food to choose from. 24 hr snack bar was good. Reservation restaurants were easy to make a reservation with, and the food and service at the restaurants was terrific!

Beach/Pools/Grounds:
2 pools were great, one with a drink bar right in the pool. Activities/games were sometimes held at the main pool, if this was not relaxing enough the other pool was in a quieter area away from all the fun and games.

Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
Activities on the resort were a lot of fun. There were contests, games, dancing and even a beach party! We only went to one activity outside of the resort which was the Scooba Doo (underwater bikes). It was o.k., but not awesome. The people taking you on the bikes were definitely not hired by the resort or it would have been a blast!

Other Comments:
In our opinion there is something for everyone at this resort - unless you don't like having fun! ☼
