    • Self touring around the DR

      Provincia de Puerto Plata Mar 23, 2014 at 9:14 AM

      Is it reasonably safe to rent a car and tour on your own in the DR? Road conditions? Areas to avoid? I am interested in birding and hiking in National Parks. How are the resorts in Puerto Plata?

    • Any hotels have 1000-1500 rooms in POP area? Could look at other areas of DR if needed.

      Puerto Plata Mar 20, 2014 at 6:16 PM

      I thought that Lifestyle Tropical along Confresi Palms would be it looks like each only has 212 rooms and 70 suites. I am looking for somewhere to have a large event. The ideal hotel would have a large stage with lighting, good service, all inclusive a most, and a great value. Not looking or needing fancy, value is more important. Any ideas and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    • Cofresi Palm Beach or Blue Bay?

      Puerto Plata Oct 4, 2013 at 3:52 PM

      My friends and I are looking to book a trip to Puerto Plata early next April. There will be 5 adults (early 30's), 2 couples and 1 single. Initially we were planning to book Cofresi Palm Beach through CheapCaribbean. But now we have the option of going through my grandma's timeshare company at Blue Bay, for 1 extra night and a slightly lower cost. We can choose between "Silver Deluxe" or "no concierge." If we went with this resort, what more is available with the Silver Deluxe, and would we really need it (a concierge)? We are having a difficult time deciding which is better for us. We would prefer less dining at buffets (seems like this point is for Cofresi, but I don't know about availability to reserve), pools (what are pool hours?), beaches, and plentiful drinks (variety and included alcohol) and activities (included as well as paid for). We do not necessarily plan to go off resort, although we are not opposed to it, and may rent a car to do some self-guided sightseeing. Which resort is nicer and has more options for people in their early 30's?

      getting around from Iberostar Resort

      Puerto Plata Apr 7, 2012 at 8:30 PM

      Hello,

      I will be staying at the Iberostar Costa Dorado in May. I was wondering how to get transit without going through the resort. Usually resorts have higher taxi prices.

      Is there a bus stop or scooter pick up near the resort gate?

      Any reliable drivers or guides I could hire? Looking to visit Sosua, Isabel de Torres and Porta Plata Malecon.

      How far to Santiago de los Caballeros? What would be typical taxi fare? Any buses from Costa Dorado?

      Thanks,
      Merryway

      If I have spare luggage allowance, should I bring something for children?

      Puerto Plata Aug 7, 2011 at 10:33 AM

      I am travelling to Dominican Republic next week and will be staying in an All Inclusive hotel for two weeks, but I don't plan on taking too many clothes, and will basically be chilling within the hotel only (just need to rest and recuperate) but should I have spare baggage allowance, would love to bring some nice things for some local children... I have read that DR has some very poor areas, and whilst I don't have much spare cash, if coloring books / pencils / notebooks etc would help a local school, I'd be happy to oblige.
      Am I just being daft, or do you think this might make a difference to someone?! I got the idea from an advert for a website called "www.packforapurpose.org" but my hotel is not one of the 4 listed in DR on this website.
      What do you think?!
