I have finally plumped for the Iberostar Punta Cana for our "trip of a lifetime" holiday in August. It came in a little over budget but it does sound like a good choice base on T/A reviews.
It would be really great if people who have stayed at this hotel before could give us any tips, recommendations etc for our trip. This may well be the only time we are able to come to the Dom Rep for a number of reasons (including the cost @ over £6000 for 2 weeks) so we want to make the most of it. Hence the "trip of a lifetime" phrase. I will try to keep all my questions over the coming months condensed into this one thread, so I don't fill the forum up too much.
So here goes;
We are travelling from the UK having always holidayed in Europe before, is the time difference liable to leave us jetlagged or not?
We have 2 members of our party that have restricted mobility, I use a walking stick but can usually manage most things in my own time. My Mother is 83 and has much worse mobility issues, we will be bringing a wheelchair. What is the hotel and country in general like for people with restricted mobility or wheelchair use?
Can someone from the UK tell me what type of travel adaptors to get?
I know the sea will be nice and quite warm but what about the pools, are they really cold? (They are in most of Europe)?
Is there plenty to keep a 13 year old girl occupied, when not in the sea/pool and is it safe to let her have a relatively free reign round the hotel complex?
Is there a lot of problems with mossies in Punta Cana?
Do I need long trousers for any of the restaurants in the hotel?
Are there any shops or restaurants within walking distance (using the wheelchair as well) to browse round, or restaurants if we fancy a change one night away from the hotel.
Cant think of any more questions for now but any advice or tips I will be grateful for.
Thanks to all
