We are going to the Majestic Colonial in Punta Cana because it looked so lovely and sounded so lovely when Mrs. Sea Breeze blogged about it! πŸ™‚

We are going to stay in Punta Cana too! We went with the Dreams Resorts, they were a great price and they look beautiful as well. I checked out Trip Advisor and the reviews are mostly favorable. There are some really bad ones but you cant please everyone. We cant wait to go, my Fiance checks the weather there daily on his phone, considering its 32 degrees where I live today.

We stayed at the Excellence Punta Cana and thought it was great!   I believe it was slightly more expensive than the Majestic Colonial, but according to Trip Advisor it had (at the time at least) a slightly better food rating as well.   We just happened to be comparing the two resorts as friends had recently stayed at the Majestic Colonial and really enjoyed it – but thought that the food was just ‘ok’.   So we booked at Excellence – and had some really great meals…and some really ‘not so great’ meals.   So…just like any other meal you have in life – it depends on the restaurant and what you order!

I think you’d enjoy either resort!

I researched the heck out of Punta Cana when I thought we were going last fall (he decided he rather buy something pretty and sparkly to propose with.  I’m ok with that.).  So, we’re planning to do Punta Cana with maybe a side trip to Santo Domingo for our Honeymoon.  We’re leaning toward the Punta Cana Princess because it’s a smaller, adults only resort.  Not that we don’t like kids, but we just don’t want them running around and being kids while we’re trying to enjoy our honeymoon. 

We’re meeting with our travel agent tomorrow–I’m excited!!!!!

My fiance and I stayed at the Majestic Colonial during April ’08.  We had a good time but the food really left a lot to desire.  The breakfast buffet outside by the beach was quite bad actually.  The rooms were nice and spacious.  The bathrooms are connected to the room only by a glass door so if you are squeamish about bathroom noises it might be an issue haha.  The Majestic Elegance was still under construction but looked like it was going to be amazing.  But other than the food, the Colonial is a gorgeous place and I even got to hold a little monkey!  Also, one of my best friends stayed at the Excellence Punta Cana with her husband and they both raved about that resort.  In the end, I think, all of the resorts are very smiliar and you’ll love the DR!

I have been to Punta Cana twice.  The beaches are simply gorgeous.  I went in March 2005 the first time and stayed at the Caribe Club Princess.  It was nice, all-inclusive resort.  We stayed for a week.  They had a buffett and several ala-carte restaurants.  Make sure your husband brings long pants because all ala-carte restaurants require proper attire. 

 My second trip was in September 2007 with my now fiance.  We stayed for 5 days and 6 nights at the Iberostar Bavaro.  It was very nice and I would stay there again.  Service was great.  Food was pretty decent, too.   Also, don’t be surprised with the amount of nudity you see on the beach……mainly topless women.  There are a lot of Europeans that vacation in DR.

 Check out tripadvisor.com for reviews of hotels and resorts.  This is my favorite website when planning any sort of traveling.

We stayed at Excellence in Puerto Morelos last August- that’s where my fiance popped the question!  We met other guests who had been to Excellence in Punta Cana and had absolutely raved about it.  I would definitely look into Excellence.  For the record, I am not someone who usually goes the all-inclusive route but Excellence will make you a believer.

We are going to the Punta Cana Princess . . . I can’t wait . . . I’m completely addicted to reading the reviews on Tripadvisor.
