Found 2nd Jun 2013
Great opportunity, excellent price. Shame I haven't got 2 weeks holiday to take off work

It is hurricane season but only just and I went last year through hurricane Isaac and didn't have a spot of rain, so would 100% recommend it.

Mr jim e bones

how much?



Believe it or not that is quite a good deal for the fact its all inclusive & in the Dom Rep.

If you drink & like food its even better.

This seems like a great price, my brother and I paid over a grand each for 2 weeks all inclusive to the dom rep with Thomas Cook, and that was in 2008!

top deal , hot from me

great price, defo heat!

Including the transport?

Original Poster

Yes, includes transfers and 20kg baggage per person

The deals are always down south departures.

great price just wish i had the dolla and no commitments to go

Good price , we paid about that in 1998.
Been there 3 times..3rd time was getting very commercialised overrun with hawkers on the beaches..

If you go take loads of bits and bobs for the local children, pencils,pads etc, sweets etc + make-up bundles for the young girls ..

Great hotel, great deal. Be prepared gor 3 1/2 hour coach transfer. That's put me off previosly but for this price..........

Excellent price for 2 weeks in a Bahia Principe hotel. Hot

Beezer mega deal, if only I could get time off work

Absolutely amazing price, gutted we can't get the holiday off work to go.

By the way it says the flight is from Gatwick to Samana (not Puerto Plata) - therefore the transfer is 1 hour according to the website?

hot hot hot but I need go with 8 months boy....

Usually cheaper in the summer months as that when the Caribbean is at risk from the odd hurricane and rain. Best between September and April. But still a great price.

Went to exact hotel in sept2010, paid £610pp 2weeks AI, but were upgraded to junior villa. Absolutely brilliant . Def recommend!!!

lol - do you realise how that sounds? its like packing your GROOMING kit !

been 4 years on spin at this time of year, no bother at all with weather, but would recommend minimum of 4 star hotel

Dont take items to give to children. It encourages begging.
Its a much better idea to make a donation to a local school

" Shame I haven't got 2 weeks holiday to take off work :("

Shame I've got bloody kids......

Adults is 18+ right? All members of the group have to be adults or just one?

Every member of the group has to be 18 or over

TripAdvisor puts me off

Yes I agree re trip advisor.

This resort seems like an ideal place for someone who has never been on holiday before, considering that the majority of reviews come from people who have only 1 or 2 reviews.

Didn't know this Republic is PG 18.

What kind of explicit content is included in the package holiday that makes it Adults only!

I tend to agree.

I didn't really enjoy it, despite spending over £1000 PP to stay in the 5 star Palladium Palace. Went outside of the resort two or three times and thought I was going to get mugged. We even got abused when we refused to go into some guy's shop on the beach.

Oh, and the local Hertz rent a car expected me to pay a $10,000 deposit on my car rental when I got there. Laughable!

This is still a good deal but I wouldn't go back

What's the sea like here? I have been to Puerto Plata before and it was very rough. I have also been to the south and it was very nice (more like the Caribbean)

I've been to Sosúa 4 times in about the last 12 years. I've always found the locals to be very friendly and they have a sense of humour - some people are just magnates to it, I guess.
All inclusive is not really a selling point here, from my experiences, most resorts in DR issue a drinks/food wristband. As with a lot of AI, be warned that food can start off e.g. as simple bbq chicken, then the next night that gets transformed into chicken fajitas, etc. Never been ill from it. People tend to get ill from too much free booze or too much sun (the steady breeze can be deceiving).
