Put the “residential” in “presidential” at this Punta Cana resort, where you’re always made to feel at home. The namesake digs here at Presidential Suites, Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Resorts’ newest property, are all set in one of eight buildings on the shoreline of Cortecito and come with plenty of touches that evoke a private apartment more than they do a hotel accommodation. For lounging, you get a living room, plus your own balcony or terrace; for dining, a kitchen and dining room. Oh, and use of a barbecue area. And access to no less than nine eating or drinking establishments.
Think of the rest of the property as your backyard; it certainly does evoke your own beachfront playground. It’s spotted with palm trees and plush loungers and complete with a kids club, a spa and two free-form pools. It’s worth spending some time enjoying all of these, given that they really aren’t such common backyard amenities, welcoming and friendly as they may feel. But afterwards, we recommend venturing outside the resort for a bit to explore the surrounding community – scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, horseback riding and turning your great home into a great home base.
Cook your own meals in your kitchenette, lounge on your private balcony or terrace, and give any travel companions the space they need during your tropical stay. These suites are plenty roomy, and they’re nice to look at, too, thanks to the designer furniture in the living room.
What do you get when you combine à la carte fare with an award-winning staff? A stellar culinary experience. With options ranging from American to Asian to Italian, your choices are bountiful. They also include a buffet restaurant, a VIP pool bar (with towels and lounge service), three beach bars and an after-hours lounge. Enjoy cooking your own meals? Each suite comes equipped with a full kitchen and dining room – perfect for DIY dining.
Troubles melt away at Yin Yang Spa, as you indulge in relaxing treatments that transform your fatigue into energy. This boutique wellness center has everything you’ll need to connect mind, body and spirit, like antioxidant vitamin-C facials, salt scrubs with thermal minerals and hot stone massages.
With miles of white-sand beaches, fairways designed by professional golfers and the thrill of outdoor adventure, Punta Cana is rich in Dominican tradition, culture and leisure. Known for its perfect beaches, this tropical getaway is a popular one, and you’ll certainly appreciate the appeal when lounging by the waves, going zip lining, dancing to Dominican music, exploring the Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park or browsing local shops and boutiques – to name a few of the adventures you can have.
How to Get There
My husband and I stayed here a couple of weeks ago. First, let me say that when I travel outside the US, my expectations are NOT that accommodations will be at the same standards as my home country. And why should they? Part of travel is experiencing OTHER countries and cultures, otherwise, I would just stay home.
So, first the accommodations. We had a two bedroom suite which was very large. It had two bathrooms and a kitchen. The furnishings were fine, not fancy but clean and not too beat up. The kitchen was a little sad in that there was really not much for utensils and whatnot but it’s an all-inclusive so not much need for that. What was not so great was that it appeared that some things were missing in the room, like a TV in the living room or 2nd bedroom and there was no hair dryer in the 2nd bathroom. You could see where they used to be but..no more! Also, there used to be a laundry room but those were also gone. It was a little weird but since there was only two of us anyway, it didn’t matter. However, if a family was staying in the room, it might be an issue. Otherwise, the room was comfortable and spacious and I would give it a 3 Star rating.
The rest of the resort was quite pretty, although really small. There are two pools and a buffet restaurant plus two other restaurants that you can make a reservation for at no cost. There is a little bar on the beach as well. I thought the food was actually very good at this resort. I’ve been to other all-inclusives and often the food gets very routine after a couple of meals. This place had a different themed meal every night. Some were better than others, in my opinion, but there was always something good to eat and I definitely did not go hungry! I also think that the staff did a great job and were very friendly and helpful. I asked for more water for our room one day and they brought extra everyday while we were there. I don’t recommend drinking the water out of the tap as it is very salty. The beach in front of the resort has lots of chairs and you can walk down the beach for a really long way to work off some of that buffet food. There is seaweed in the water that washes up on the beach but it’s not a big deal and you know, it’s the ocean so you can’t control that anyway. The sand is pretty and powdery white. 4 Stars to the staff and the food, for sure! A good place for relaxing and soaking up the sun.
An excellent value for the money. Staff were very friendly and special kudos to the entertainment staff including Jefferson, Yon Carlos and Minimi. My only criticisms are the quality of food wasn't great and was often room temperature, they had a crepe machine which was always turned on but nobody ever manned the station, and it took a couple days and several requests before the refrigerator in our room was stocked with soda and beer.
The hotel has an amazing staff, every one was extremely pleasant and went above and beyond. Our 2 bedroom suite was lovely with a circular staircase to a rooftop deck. The beach was pristine and lovely. The only negative is the nights lack entertainment and the resort offers limited dining options. Very low key and in some ways rather boring in the evenings. The casino has approximately 10 old machines. Still loved the vacation.
Some pictures below indicates some of the activities on the beach and at night. Myself and friends had such a fabulous time. We recommend, especially if you like a smaller and more intimate resort. Wait staff at all restaurants was superb. Wait staff while sitting at the beach, couldn’t do enough. My favorite was Carmen Gil Borquez. Jefferson and the rest of the entertainment staff kept us amused Day and night!!
I loved Carmen, she makes the best ameretto's sours. Jesus and all the waitress staff at each restaurant were outstanding. I like cleanliness and Presidential Suites was clean. The grounds were well kept. The blinds were see through not much privacy they should not be see through during day or night. Color is beautiful. I think they should charge fees when visitors damage there furniture. It would be great to get a dish towel and dish liquid. A broom and mop, but we had a spill and our assigned cleaning person immediately came to clean up. She was so kind to make sure we had fresh towels. The front desk could benefit much if someone could speak multiple languages to speed up reservation. Also, I think the staff should also be crossed trained when it comes to making dinner reservation, calling for transportation and booking excursions. The food was decent. But food should be labeled to prevent shellfish allergies. Maintenance in quality of work and fixtures could be improved by using stainless steel and caulking minimize visibility. If you considering fishing we caught 3 Marlins and 3 Mahi Mahi and that's thanks to Tease Me sportfishing crew staff worked hard and tireless. Lunch was good! Cap cana is a beautiful marina. Jeep Safari really great team and definitely worth the money if you want to see the life of the people in Punta Cana. One other last import thing put a ATM in front office, I regret we could not tip often and as high as we could. I Loved Punta Cana so keep the place up and clean. You will last a lifetime. The beach and decor was beautiful it was so comfortable everywhere we sat. More entertainment is always a plus. Keep the Spanish classes going. Larger size T shirts please and lower prices people will buy more. Enhance security of windows and doors on lower floors, and safe should be in the wall. Noise lessen in back unit. Rodmill good salesman.
