Questions for those familiar with the Punta Cana Princess. We were at the Bavaro Princess a few years ago, it wasn't a super experience, there were a bunch of little things that just turned us off from the place but our main complaint was the food, both the buffet and the a la cartes. With the Punta Cana Princess being 'related' to the Bavaro Princess, I'm a little wary and I'm looking for help in making a decision. Right now there's a really good deal to the place but if I think hubby won't enjoy the food then it's a no go, good deal or not and this is a bit of a surprise retirement present for him (he doesn't read the forums, just the reviews, so he won't read about the surprise here :))) needless to say I'd like for him to enjoy everything about the week. We know we'll enjoy the beach but good food is a must. He's not picky but he enjoys good quality food. I know food and tastes are subjective but any comments you have would be appreciated. At the Bavaro Princess we found the a la cartes served a lot of the same food, coated it with a different sauce (and a lot of sauce) and put a different name on the dish.
So, what's the food like at the PCP, buffet and a la cartes......selection, quality etc?
For anyone has been to either of the Bahias and the Punta Cana Princess, if you would compare them both in the food department and other ways for me it would be very much appreciated.
Is the place in need of updating, how is it for cleanliness.....any info you can provide would again be appreciated.
Right now I'm sort of down to the Punta Cana Princess, the Grand Palladium, the Iberostar Punta Cana and the Gran Bahia , not Ambar as it's still a little pricey....been to the Bahia and Ambar several times and love them both but am willing to give another place a shot. Was considering the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe but read a bunch of reviews which were pretty negative about the food.
