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

      by ClearChoiseMusic Online Now 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.

I speak very little spanish and will need someone to translate at times, as well as drive us around to various hotel sites. Any recommendations? My email is toddking30@yahoo.com

    • Cofresi Palm Beach or Blue Bay?

      by angrn5502 Online Now 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

      by merryway Online Now 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?

      by NiciJ Online Now 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?!

      Options for flying Puerto Plata back to the US ? Opciones para volar Puerto Plata a EE UU?

      by carloarg02 Online Now Sep 15, 2009 at 5:18 PM

      Hello,

      We'll be in a resort around Puerto Plata next week and since my wife is pregnant and has had a history of pregnancy problems, we wanted to be ready to fly back to the US if an emergency arises. So I've been trying to figure out what flights back to the US are available.

      Vamos a estar en un hotel de Puerto Plata la semana que viene, y ya que mi esposa esta embarazada y ha tenido problemas con embarazos en el pasado, queriamos estar preparados si alguna emergencia pasa. Asi que estaba tratando de averiguar que vuelos van desde Puerto Plata a los Estados Unidos.

      So far these are the only 3 daily flights that I've been able to research / Estos son los 3 vuelos diarios que he encontrado:

      Continental, 1:10pm, New York, 4 hrs
      Jetblue, 2:50pm, New York, 4 hrs
      American Airlines, 4:30pm, Miami, 2hrs

      Do you know if there's other flights from POP to anywhere in the US, or is there another big nearby airport? Saben si hay algun otro vuelo ademas de esos desde el aeropuerto POP hacia los Estados Unidos, o hay alguno otro aeropuerto internacional cerca?

      Thanks/ Gracias!
