Puerto Plata Stories and Tips

Breezes Puerto Plata

My wife and I visited this all inclusive resort for one week in February. The weather was in the mid-80s F all week. The resort is a short bus or taxi ride from the airport at Puerto Plata, between the towns of Sosua and Cabarete.

The resort is on a large property that is in an unpopulated area surrounded by forest/jungle. There are no other resorts nearby. There is a huge pool and lots of activities for children which makes it a good family resort. The beach is well maintained and very popular, with no shortage of lounge chairs for sunbathing.

There is a large buffet and four specialty restaurants, including the popular French and Japanese. The buffet has a weekly seafood night that includes local lobster.

Our room was basic. You can book different levels of accommodation. I would recommend more than the basic room. There is a free shuttle bus to the nearby towns of Sosua and Cabarete. Both are known for their beaches and local beach shops where bargaining is the main sport.

The staff were very friendly and well trained. There was no shortage of free drinks, with one of the bars open 24 hours. I recommend this resort if you are looking for an all inclusive in the Caribbean.
