Just returned from a week at this gorgeous resort in Puerto Plata. Felt like a movie star in my private villa, lounging by our private pool, with our own personal housekeeper and breakfast chef making our stay special! I've never been to any of the other resorts in PP, so cannot comment, but have been reading with interest the forums on ICD and some of the others. It seems that ICD and some other resorts are rated everything from great to terrible, which makes anyone nervous about booking. I can say that everything about our experience at the Crown Villas was top notch (the food, the service, the weather, the lodging itself, the activities, the overall quality). I'd be happy to field any questions either on the forum or by contacting me privately.
