The Review

The just-opened Fishing Lodge Cap Cana feels like a Caribbean resort thoughtfully built by a Spanish architect. I love that the hotel is set up like an actual village, with rooms set above an array of boutiques along the property’s main thoroughfare. There are beautiful stone plazas, a deep-water marina and attractive earth-toned buildings, giving the entire location a Mediterranean-in-the-Caribbean vibe. The name ‘Fishing Lodge’ itself is a bit of a misnomer; you’ll find over-the-top yachts, not gutted marlins, at the water’s edge.

{“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/2020/prop-69348-1320782126-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”One-Bedroom Villas are 1,000 square feet and have a full kitchen and a private patio.”}Each of the 220 units — which range from 730-square-feet junior suites to the three-bedroom condos topping out at 2,700 square feet — has either a terrace or a patio, many with views of the water. The color scheme incorporates muted pastels and earth tones, with local hardwood and wrought iron accents. The windows and doors are triple-paned, so nighttime noise isn’t an issue.

Couples, families and small groups are well accommodated here, and impeccable service is sure to be a hallmark, thanks to an experienced management team, which comes from top names in hospitality like the Ritz Carlton and the Four Seasons.

With four curvaceous pools, two restaurants (one indoor, the other open-air), access to a 20,000-square-foot spa with a yoga and Pilates studio, several bars and a concierge service at the ready to book dozens of excursions — from snorkeling to zip-lining — I was never bored; and if I wanted a change of scenery, I could simply head to the hotel’s sister property, the Sanctuary Cap Cana, only a five-minute shuttle ride away.

Bad Experience with TripAdvisor and The Hotel
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

I made a reservation for this hotel on June 22 and I made the whole process and when I finish I received a confirmation number for my reservation 1360739243. On the morning (in the day that I supposed to check in Jun 23) when I was on my way I received a call from the hotel that my reservation was cancel because the credit card wasn't approved by the bank but I didn't receive any warning from the bank or TripAdvisor, when I called the bank they said that my credit card doesn't has any situation to cancelled the payment and then when I asked in the hotel if I can try the payment again with another credit card the answer was the hotel was booked and my reservation was given to another person instead of give me the chance to proceed with the payment again

I fell very disappointed because I was on my way to the hotel to meet my family that was in the area so I had to cancelled all my plans for that reason and when I tried other hotels they were booked as well

Great apartment. Super spacious .ideal for couples looking for big room woth great price !
We didn't do all inclusive .and the receptionist literally rolled his eyes when we said no to the all inclusive deal .we flew from UK. After 11hours flight .was not pleasant to receive such treatment .
Buy we didn't let thr bother us .The owner Ricardo is super helpful always emails back immediately .

Better rent a car for food shopping and driving to the heath in the north ..and great for ppl who love cooking .

Love the huge apartment .very very homy ..will definitely return

We recently returned from an extended vacation at Fishing Lodge in Cap Cana. The resort was wonderful and the amenities were great! Most importantly, however, were the professionalism, friendliness, and competency of all of the staff we encountered! There are too many people to name personally, but you know who you are! We would like to say thank you to everyone for your hospitality, and we will see you again in December!! All the best! Kathy and Chuck

Great private place to stay

We stayed here for 5 nights, all inclusive. Was a super deal and was very surprised at the "room" we had. Was actually an apartment, full kitchen, living, dining rooms, walk in closet, large bath & master bedroom. Had beautiful view from our balcony too! We felt very comfortable and safe there.

Disappointing stay!

We went to Punta Cana for 3 days and rented a condo in this resort - did not take an all inclusive package which was offered to us for $85 usd each per day on top of the room. The setting is beautiful and the marina very nice.
The reception personnel not very friendly and did not give us any explanations about the site which is huge. Took us a long time to find our room. The room has a kitchen and was very nice at one point but is not well maintained now - no coffee maker, no dish towels, one spoon, two forks only....
I am talking from experience as we own a rental property in Las Terrenas, DR, and i make sure my guests have all the basics and more :)
No free Wifi in the room, either have to purchase daily pack or go to the lobby to use Internet....
Very expensive to eat on site and nothing else around.
Coffee and a few pastries available in the lobby in the morning only.
The central pool is beautiful, the personnel not friendly...
Overall, a big disappointment - couldn’t wait to get back to Las Terrenas!
