Trip Report Coral Costa Caribe = Hell on Earth

Jump to last reply

The saying "you get what you pay for" is a perfect description of this place. PLEASE do not stay here if you have expectations of a great vacation. It's my first time staying in a resort in the DR but, I have traveled enough to know the difference between this horrible resort and other places that are tolerable.

We booked a trip for 10 days to the CCC and upon arrival at the airport it was already an issue with our transfer- the guy had our names but didn't want us to board w/o some sort of voucher. Okay- so they had my name though! Upon arrival I was impressed with the grand entrance of the lobby however, with closer inspection everything is half-done.

It took us almost an hour for check-in with no line. At checkin they get you right away with their vacation club time share breakfast- no thank you! And, they never stop!!! They are constantly hounding you to come to a breakfast on the beach with a seminar for the time share. Go away Francisco- is what I actually said after the 6th approach. no exaggeration!

The service here I horrible!!! you have to ask 3 times for something before they bring it. In the buffet it takes to thee end of your meal to get a drink. All of the restaraunta are closed one night a week and once the restaraunt is full they say it's closed. It's rediculous! And the food is horrible- not a good selection at all. They also run out of wine every night. the ladies next to us at the Mexican restaraunt ordered chips 3 times the last time they asked for them the guy said - we don't have anymore chips. unbelievable!

the first room I had the door didn't bolt, the phone didn't work and the air conditioning was broke - it also took us 2 days to be moved to a room with a broken remote, broken toilet and little mouse friend that visited one night.

the beach is okay- I have seen better. the beach chairs need to be replaced and so do the "beach" towels from the towel hut. oh and that's even if they had towels.

the vendors that are on the resort bother you constantly when you are walking to the pool or on the beach. and the men are total scum- they keep hitting on you and don't leave you alone. very annoying.

overall- I would NEVER come back again and I actually am excited to leave and go
home! bad food, bad service and not all that nice of a place.
