I’ve been to Punta Cana, DR twice.  LOVE it!  The beaches are amazing and the water is crystal clear blue.  I did not stay at Dreams, though that chain does have a good reputation.  I love to read reviews on tripadvisor.com. 

A few tips……1. bring maybe $50 in one dollar bills for tipping.  It goes A LONG way.  We tipped our buffett dinner waiter each time.  Service was beyond stellar (though it was before we tipped).  We also tipped the maids and our room was always stocked with beer and soda.   2. stay away from the beach vendors unless you like to haggle.  nothing is priced and it’s all about negotiating.  3.  A lot of europeans vacation in DR so don’t be surprised if you see a few tah-tahs.  Topless sunbathing is not uncommon in DR.  4.  Also I’ve heard the casionos can be a bit shady….I don’t gamble so I can not elaborate.

 Overall I would definately return to Punta Cana.  You will have an amazing honeymoon!!!!

I wrote a post on this under Punta Cana, Dominican Republic Honeymoon a month or so ago!  I got a lot of good responses.  We are going in late June.  I’ve heard many good things, so I hope it is worth the money spent (which was actually decent compared to other locations!).

We are going in October!  I can’t wait!  We are staying at the Majestic Elegance.  It’s new (opened 12/08 I think) so we got a wicked awesome deal on it.  Several knotties on my local board are going to the same place (we all met with the same TA to get the same deal).

We are going in July! I have heard many great things about the DR! We are staying at the new Iberostar Grand Bavaro Hotel. It’s an adult only hotel with many great reviews.
