Rough Sea

Ive had feedback today to suggest that the sea can be really rough in this part of the dominican. Has anyone else experienced this?

We just came back from Punta Cana (Majestic Colonial) .... the water was pretty clear. We were there for 6 nights. Some days the water was pretty calm and some days a little rough...I wouldn't say "really" rough. I don't like rough water and it did not bother me. We also stayed at 2 differant resorts over the past few years. The ocean at the first resort was very calm and crystal clear. Our second visit we found the water to be a little rough (once again...not rough by no means).

Depends on where you are too. We were at the LTI REsort and the water there was calm. When we walked the beach we noticed it was choppier at some other resorts than at LTI.

I went to the Majestic in January and didn't find the waters too rough, but just perfect for boogie boarding. I did sometimes get caught in them but I never felt afraid. I did go to Makow ( obvious wrong spelling) beach on a tour and it was quite a bit rougher. I got pretty far out a few times chasing the waves and had to be waved back in by the coordinators of the tour. It was a great time though. I found them to be just rough enough to have fun, but not to the point where it was scary.

The ocean is notoriously rough around the area of the Excellence Resort. Google search or check out the brochures and you can blatently see the "big" water. The closer to the eastern tip you stay, the calmer the water. If you opt for the south coast area around Bayahibe / La Romana, you will not be disappointed with the condition of the sea.
