Bavaro Princess - Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Author: Monique Johnson
Date of Trip: April 2004

Hispaniola- I think by far the best buffet I have ever been to. We went Thursday night, which is Dominican night. Shots of "MAMA JUANA" greet you at the door. Then the selection of food is amazing, all the delicacies of DR are on display including but not limited to the roasted pig-full body, of course. What can I say the food was great, I ate well every day.

Breakfast was the main buffet-Hispaniola-eggs made to order, fresh made fruit smoothies, waffles, doughnuts. Heard Chopin also had breakfast but never made it there for breakfast.

VIP: well worth the extra money, didn't do the horseback riding, but the Bottle of Rum-delicious, cigars, gourmet dinner and massage-WHICH WAS THE BEST ONE I HAVE EVER RECEIVED, was well worth it!

PARASAILING: wonderful-and I'm afraid of heights-I don't even take my kids on the ferris wheel. But I did it 250- 300ft in the air, the company that took us out even dropped us off at the beach of our resort like a water taxi. Cost $75 for the two of us to go up together for about 15-20 minutes-GREAT!

Shopping: Across the street or down the beach-BARGAIN, do not settle for the price they give you, move on if they do not give in, someone else will.

PEOPLE: The Dominican people are the most friendly people I have every met. "HOLA" was all we ever heard from everyone we came across. The Europeans-Spanish, in particular are rude. They seemed to act as if not only was it the staffs every desire to fulfill all their wishes and commands but for all other guest to bow down to their feet also.

All in all this was the greatest trip and best resort we have ever been to, but since this is the first resort we have been too, don't take my advise, check it out yourself!
