    Nice resort but inconsistent service

    We just returned from a 7 day vacation to Caribe Deluxe Princess. In general, it was a nice resort! We upgraded to Platinum and Oceanfront when we arrived. While doing this we were given the Honeymoon Suite instead. The Honeymoon Suite is a nice room but placement of the in room jacuzzi tub was not ideal. For us, would have preferred the balcony was there. Our balcony faced the pool and had not the best view. This was our fourth time to DR and this resort ranks at the bottom for us. That being said, it was not awful but the service was inconsistent. For us, service is crucial. Great service makes a huge difference with your stay. There were some incredible servers like Leticia in the lobby, Andres, Angie, Cepin, and Patricio who were mainly in the Platinum area but we saw them in other areas of the resort. We always upgrade when we travel and while for us Platinum was worth it for the Platinum beach area alone, better service would probably entice more people to book Platinum. We never received our beach bag or towels in our room per the Platinum document. Not sure what “concierge service” means but don’t believe we received it lol. Typically when you upgrade you receive butler service but that was definitely not the case. Not once did we receive “turn down service” but we did not care. The two Platinum restaurants are nice but all the a la cartes we ate at were nice. The resort grounds are beautiful! There is a lot of wildlife (more than the typical resort). The rooms were nice. The food was pretty good! The two Platinum restaurants were my fave. Our least favourite was the food at the Sports Bar but the Sports Bar itself was nice. Some in our group bowled. It was a bit pricey for what you get (US$10 per person per game) but they had fun. The shuttles run frequently but the walk around the resort is not bad if you don’t have mobility issues. The ocean is rough, too rough for me, but the rest of our group loved it! Bugs were there for sure! A couple of people in our group were bit badly and others not at all 🤷‍♀️ The biggest issue for me was the chair issue. I have frequently heard people complain about chairs at almost every resort we have ever been to but this was the worst! It was next to impossible to get a chair, especially at the Swim Up bar pool unless you were up at 6am. The Platinum beach, however, always had chairs available. If you are a fairly new traveler, you will love the resort. If you travel frequently, in my opinion, this resort is mediocre but we still enjoyed it!

    Vacation with Friends

    We spent 10 days at the Caribe Deluxe Princess. The property is very clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The on-line dinner reservation was difficult - spotty internet connection and very full restaurants. Tao was by far the best restaurant. It would have been nice to have more towels and a wash cloth in the room instead of having to find a cart. Bed was comfortable. Very nice beach but necessary to save chairs by 6 am.

    Caribe Deluxe was fantastic!

    Just got back from this beautiful resort! We had a fantastic time. The grounds are gorgeous and well maintained. The food did not disappoint and our room was clean and comfortable. The resort staff was fantastic especially our favourite server Leticia C. in the Lobby bar. She was always so happy to see us and a very attentive server. We truly have zero complaints about our stay.

    Amazing beach and resort, and a few tips…

    We just spent 9 days at this beautiful resort. It was very clean, nice rooms with very comfortable beds, good food, and a beautiful beach. Servers were very friendly in all places, except in the buffet dining area. The buffet dining area food was good, but the service was disappointing. We had to ask 2-3 people almost every time just to get water. None of them smiled or seemed friendly. If you wanted a bar drink, it never came. My suggestion if eating in the buffet, is to just grab your own drink from one of the bars and bring it with you. Having said that, this is our only real complaint about our stay here. Most everyone else was friendly and great! The grounds are beautiful. The service in the restaurants and Platinum area (if you upgrade) is wonderful. Remember to bring a lot of single dollar bills with you for tipping good service. The workers rely heavily on your generosity to complete their income in a country where the average annual income is only $9000. They are grateful for it too. We will be going back to Caribe Deluxe for sure!
