Did not start off good but turned out very well
Nov 24 2018
The first room many things didnt work, they gave us a room the next day that was great! Been going to this resort for around 4 years and was surprised at the first place they gave us. We love the Caribe club princess and will return. The staff is so friendly and helpful, always smiling and kind! Hosea at the beach bar, love him, Yeroni in the buffet so sweet, and Fransica too! Just hope next year we start off with a nice room. Will recommend this place to everyone

Wil never go or recommend this hotel
Oct 27 2018
In two days I had my room changed three times. Air conditioning not working and as per repair guy they were aware of situation and instead of fixing kept putting people in these rooms. New and last room (refused to change again) had a leak in bachroom and in entrance hall, we kept putting tissues on floor so we would not fall. This was supposed to be an upgrade therefore it had an iron, toilet paper holder and tissues. These items were not available in previous two rooms. Food was scarce and poor, I've been to DR approximately 10 times and this has been the worse hotel accommodations we have ever encountered. Also on the second day right before we showered we lost water, when called we were told they were working on it that it was the whole complex. On the third day we lost power as we were getting ready to go for dinner. Thank goodness for my husband's flashlight. Drinks were of poor quality and meats were tough. Only had bacon one day at breakfast and the fruit selection was limited to pineapple and watermelon. They also have a section of the hotel hat supposedly is ecologically protected. Water was in a swamp looking area where the stagnant water smelled of sewer, probably the reason were eaten alive by mosquitoes. I understand they have to protect this but there has to be some kind of spraying to alleviate mosquito bites from guests. Again never in my previous years I was bitten and definitely not as much. Hopefuly won't develop any diseases from that. We were also locked out of our room and not even the cleaning lady could open the door. Thank God she was there and went into another room to call for someone to come but we had to wait 20 minutes for someone to arrive. This is also the first hotel I have encountered that charges a daily fee for the use of the safety deposit box. It's outrageous!!! There is only one thing good and that is the people that work there, they are very pleasant and eager to help and serve you. If it wasn't for them I don't know how we would have made it through the 8 days.

A terrible hotel. Dirty rooms, slow, no problem solving skills by staff, did not feel like a vacation. Checked out of the resort a day early to go to a different resort all together to enjoy the last bit of vacation. Waste of money at caribe club princess. So extremely disappointed.

The food at the buffets were often stale or sitting out for a long period of time. The workers at the evening restaurants weren't the friendliest and not willing to answer any questions.

Room 1: Shower, bathroom and toilet flooded, bathroom ceiling leaked, Room 2: No AC, smelly sewage water dripping from ceiling, broken TV
May 13 2018
Renee Brown was my roommate. We experienced such serious problems in our first room they eventually moved us. Room 1 problems: bathroom ceiling leaked, toilet and shower both flooded. It was slippery, smelly and we couldn't dry anything in the bathroom. We could not use the hairdryer or get ready for dinner in the bathroom. It was a nightmare. We immediately complained and had to call and visit the front desk many times to get them fixed. The maintenance man came twice. His efforts resulted in no change. The manager moved us to another room, 1162. The AC was broken which made it nighmarishly hot. The TV did not work. The icing on the cake was that sewage water was dripping through the bathroom light fixture over the bathroom sink. We immediately reported the problems. I actually wrote a note to the manager. We called. We told the maids in the hallway. We followed up. They changed the light fixture but of course, the smelly water leak continued! The AC never worked. So it was a nightmare trip. Despite daily emails to Kimberly Perry who booked our trip and who was apparently back from vacation a couple of days before we were leaving, Apple Vacations did NOTHING to help. Kimberly Perry basically blew us off. After the trip was over, she sent an email telling me to call a generic phone number. She did not pass along any message or notes. She had a full list of problems with timely updates. Because of this nightmare experience, I want a refund. I will be reviewing Apple Vacations on outside sites. I have a Readership badge on TripAdvisor.

We went on the trip with 6 couples. All of our rooms had issues; water pipes breaking, toilets not working, AC not working (too cold & too hot), trouble with keycard entry, trouble with safes, no hot water, lost electricity twice, light switch exploded in room, room flooded from bathroom pipe, had to take thermostat apart to change temp, sliding doors did not work easily. The hotel is very tired & not well maintained. 9 of 12 had stomach issues. The staff was excellent, except the front desk. Check-in was difficult. Some had trouble getting towels from maids.

Nice staff but terrible hotel
Oct 23 2017
The restaurant and bar staff were awesome. Our room was old, bed uncomfortable with aged mattresses and the A/C did not function properly the entire stay. We went to the lobby desk 3 times to complain and ask for another room but we were told by Emmanuel (VIP Manager) and his staff that a better room was not available.

Air Conditioner was the wrost even after they switched our room. Guess is what they can do. The VIP has alot of benefits and one of them is 24 hr. Room service. My kids ordered three different times on different days ice cream "something in the menu" they took the order and it never delivered and if you call to find out the status they won't pick up. Seaweed was horrible but uncontrollable. Beach is nice overall hotel and employees are very nice great attitude and energy. If you tip them they won't forget you. Premium drinks with vip. Cigars are a gift not all that and everyone gets a bottle of brutal. The maid does pop up early. Fills the fridge up with beers soda bottles come and sprite and alot of waters. They will deliver juice if you ask guest services. Most channels are in Spanish but who cares you are there to enjoy. Ask for a main pool room great music. Then party starts at 4 and beach is close.

Great place to rest and spend time with family!

It is a family resort, with a friendly and attentive staff. It has a Kids Club with different activities and the people in charge of the Club are very responsible, caring for the children and very happy, (Virginia and her companions) try hard and do an excellent job. The pool bar is the best they always serve you with a smile and they do everything they can to make sure that all the guests attend to you well (Wally the bartender ⭐ stars). Activities at different times of the day, the entertainment group are very good and dynamic. the lobby waitresses very helpful; The music at night in the lobby makes you dance and have a good time. In general the resort has something that makes you feel very well and on vacation!

Enjoyed seeing in the New Year

We got a last minute deal and arrived from Canada just after Christmas not knowing what to expect and had a fantastic time. The beach location is excellent - probably the best along that section of coast, the restaurants, rooms and pools are close together, really convenient. We found the staff in reception a little brusque but everywhere else super friendly and always smiling. Generally we weren’t impressed by the food but there were exceptions - both La Cava and the Italian restaurant were better and the New Year’s Eve buffet was good. The evening events at the theatre were enthusiastic and lavish with an MC who could keep everything moving in 4 languages! Overall - great place, we enjoyed it.

Great vacation - I would recommend this resort!

Just got back from a fabulous stay at the Caribe Club princess and we LOVED it! First off, the resort is absolutely stunning. The highlight is the mangrove that the resort is built around which is teeming with life. There are so many beautiful birds and turtles to look at along the path from the lobby to the rest of the resort. The buildings are only 3-4 stories (we hate high rise hotels) and are brightly painted providing the charm we seek in the resorts we stay in. The pools are large and curvaceous (not rectangular and boring like some other places we've stayed). The food was amazing. The buffet always had lots of choice, nice healthy options and not a lot of fried items. We tried 3 of the a la carte restaurants: the Brazilian, the Mexican and the Italian. All were great, but in particular, the cannelloni at the Italian restaurant may very well be the best things I've ever put in my mouth! The staff was always friendly and helpful, often going above and beyond to serve the guests. Mari at the beach bar makes the best margaritas of all time! The entertainment staff is present, but not pushy in getting people to participate in activities. We saw 2 of the shows at night; both were good but we were particularly blown away but the circus show. The beach was beautiful with soft sand, no sharp shells or rocks at all. Some seaweed, but it seemed that the hotel must have raked it up since there was less in front of of our resort compared with others. The water is quite wavy which is a lot of fun to play in, but we were not able to snorkel or kayak. Very windy during our stay but you can't blame the resort for that! Beware of vendors on the beach selling excursions; we spoke to a man that lost $300 US with one of them. Be safe and book through Nexus which you can do on the resort. We booked a snorkeling excursion to Catalina island and had a great time. The water is calm and it's not very windy on the Caribbean sea side of Dominican. Our room was fine. The bed was comfortable and we had a balcony overlooking the pond with ducks and flamingos. However, the lighting was very dim in the bathroom making it challenging for shaving and putting make up on. Some minor renovations are needed but I could say the same for my own home! Overall, we had a great stay and would recommend this resort to both couples and families!!

Great Stay!

Great resort. Recently stayed at the Caribe Club Princess Resort & Spa, had the VIP package and found that the benefits along with this were great. The room was quite nice, was large, very central in terms of the buffet and beach, was clean and provided to all our needs. The only recommendation is that some aspects of the room needed to be updated. The beach and resort grounds were beautiful, seemed to be well kept especially for the busiest travel time of the year. Found that the entertainment & animation staff were exceptionally great. While the majority of the staff members were very kind and approachable, the animation & entertainment staff definitely left the greatest impression. These staff members were enthusiastic and did an exceptional job. One employee in specific, Juli Manuel, particularly impressed me.

Great Hotel for the Price

We stayed for two week in early December 2018. The transportation from the airport and hotel check-in was very quick and efficient. There is a trolley that runs from the lobby to the room/pool/beach area every 10 min. The room was spacious, clean and bright. We were on the ground floor (which we had requested) near the buffet restaurant. The beds were comfortable, water was hot with a large walk in shower. The room was cleaned daily with fresh towels, shampoo and soap. The main buffet restaurant was spacious with numerous selections. It's open air concept with lots of seating. The staff was always smiling, very helpful. We were spoilt by Josh de Jesus, who held our table every breakfast and dinner. His smile and sense of humor always made our day Thank you Jose for the wonderful service. The beach is beautiful,they did a great job at keeping the beach clean of seaweed. There was plenty of chairs/shade available.. Overall, great place for the entire family
