Hello! My husband and I are about to book our vacation in April for my birthday and our anniversary. PP has been our destination of choice for some time but tonight I stupidly started reading some hotel reviews for different hotels. Our plan is to stay at the bluebay but we saw the Grand Paradise Playa Dorado too and the things I read are bit unnerving. Prostitutes all over the area was one thing that caught my attention at the hotels and in the playa dorado complex. Are the time share people really as pushy as some people say and will the vendors on the beach make our vacation seem unrelaxing. We stopped in Freeport, Bahamas last year on a cruise and the pushiness on the beach and in the markets go so overwhelming that we just had the cab bring us back to the ship and did not enjoy the time we were there at all. So, is it really as bad as some say. Is the beach really as dirty in Puerto Playa as some say or are people just really picky. I stayed in a 5 star resort twice and felt out of place. I am a Holiday Inn type girl. Fancy is not my thing so are the bad reviews from people that go on vacation to find flaws wherever they go? Any ease of mind will be helpful in my decision to book. I have always wanted to go there and look forward to the outback safari, muddy buggies, and paradise island snorkeling. The tours are what have drawn me in the most about this country opposed to other Carribean Countries. Thanks everyone for your help in advance!!
