Hi Frank and Marcy~
Our trip was GREAT!! When we arrived at the airport Saturday morning
your friend was there and had all our papers ready. The whole process took less then five minutes. It was so nice being at
the gate knowing that we did have a seat on the plane and that we were going to make that flight.
When we arrived at Punta Cana Apple was waiting for us
and the process of getting on the bus was a snap. No hassle this time trying to get our own transportation to the hotel. The
weather was beautiful when we landed but before the bus left the airport it started to rain. It rained all day and all night.
They told us that it was a tropical storm moving through. That kind of scared us after being in Wilma in Cancun but the next
day it was beautiful.
check in at the hotel was a little slow. We didn't get our room till after 4. We kept going back to the desk and they kept
saying 15 more minutes.
Monday afternoon they sent us a fruit plate
and a small bottle of rum. We loved our room. We were in area 75, close to the lobby, pool, buffet, other pool close to the
beach, and the beach itself.
The hotel was very clean and the food there was the best we have had at an all inclusive. There were several places
to choose from for dinner and we tryed several of them. All were good!
We really enjoyed the train that they have
there to take you around the complex. The place itself is huge so by riding the train we
got to see the whole area and got a general idea where everything was located.
The beach itself was beautiful. It just seems to go on forever!
The only negitive
thing about the trip to us were the people on the beach and around the pools selling stuff. They were selling different trips,
motorized sports, wanting to take pictures of us at different locations at the hotel and making us an album. We couldn't believe
how many of them there were. At Cancun they have a desk by the pool where you go to sign up
for all the activities. We just couldn't believe how many of them there were and most of them were selling the same thing.
The timeshare people were there but if you stayed near the water when you were walking the beach they didn't come after
at the beach and pools were great. It was all there if you wanted it. We just wanted to relax and do nothing. We did
go to the shows at night. Some of them were pretty good.
The trip back was also good. We got to the airport, an Apple rep took our bags, we followed him straight
to the ticket counter bypassing alot of people and in a few minutes we were all checked in.
This was really a
GREAT trip! We would go back to this hotel again.
Thanks Frank and Marcy for everything! The whole trip went like clockwork. This is the first trip
for us that went that way. No more nonrev for us for our vacations.
Thank's again for everything!
