NH Punta Cana

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We had a family wedding at the Hard Rock Hotel. We could only be on the Island for 2 days and 2 nights as we were traveling on to Europe for the New Year. Hard Rock had a minimum stay of 3 nights. Choosing to stay at the NH Punta Cana was the best thing to solve our issues. The location was perfect, close to the airport and really close to the HRH. More importantly was the cost, very reasonable and affordable for our short stay. We had day passes to the HRH and to the resort next door to the NH. There was plenty to do, eat and drink at any of those places. Our over all stay was fantastic and we are planning to return to the NH Punta Cana in the near feature. Again, thanks to the very professional and responsive security staff. The hotel was clean and the staff was very knowledgeable. As I said, the hotel was pleasingly affordable...

Great Hotel and staff for the location and price. I prefer rather than the larger inclusive resorts.

Great hotel, friendly staff will definitely return

A fairly nice, new, hotel. Good breakfast buffet. Simple but adequate room. However, our A/C wasn't strong enough to combat the southern sun. The ice machines on all floors weren't working. We stayed here a few days until our condo opened up. For the price, I am satisfied with the value.

this hotel is a bargain... modern and quiet, with nice views, and free access to the resort next door.

I needed to find lodging for one night due to an error in airline reservations. The room was clean and quite comfortable - coffee, tea, in the room. Lovely complimentary breakfast. Since I arrived fairly late and exhausted, on site restaurant was reasonable and service was well above average. Staff was friendly, accommodating and extremely helpful in getting me to where I needed to go. The only problem was that the van driver didn't know where it was! Access to resort next door was also appreciated. Because I was only there for one night, I did not have a chance to enjoy the nearby area - shopping, dining, etc. This was a perfect solution to my error.

This resort is next door to the Larimar all inclusive resort. It looks like the Larimar expanded and took over most of the NH hotel, except for one building. The pool is part of the Larimar now, there is only a small lobby and restaurant at NH. They put up a fence between the two hotels and a golf cart shuttle takes guests from NH and from the nearby part of Larimar to the main Larimar resort, where you can walk out to the beach. The included breakfast buffet is very good. Lots of choices and different daily - fresh fruits, eggs, local squash, yuca, tomatoes, cakes, pancakes, french toast, yogurt, pastries. The wifi and TV worked fine and the room included about 5 free sodas/waters in the mini bar free of charge on arrival day. Things to know: 1) All of the Larimar pools close at 7PM daily, and they stop giving out towels at 4PM. We were disappointed that we couldn't be in the pool at night or walking on the beach under the stars. 2) We did not go to an all inclusive hotel because we read that the food was mediocre at a lot of them and we figured we would rather be able to choose where to go for drinks, dinner, etc. But we didn't realize that because the Larmiar (and most of the nearby resorts) are all inclusive, it is difficult to find a place where you can buy a cold drink on the beach...they will not sell them to you at their beach bars. If you go right on the beach, it's a LONG way to a place where you can get one. If you go left, we discovered that there are some "shopping centers" and restaurants on the beach not too far down where you can have lunch or get a drink. But since you are not at a resort there you will have many people coming by trying to sell you on excursions like parasailing or snorkeling...or just selling souvenirs. 3) There's zero night life at NH hotel. You can eat in the room where they have the breakfast buffet, but we would have been the only ones there. And I'm not sure about the dinner, but the beers are overpriced ($5 each...AND they didn't have change so we had to pay even more for them). We bought beers at the local colmados for RD$65, which was about $1.30US, and even restaurants on the beach were only charging about $3US. We had a rental car and drove to the Hard Rock Casino one night (be prepared to ask for directions along the way if you are driving there), and the other night we went up to the Bavaro Village for dinner at Citrus...both of which were nice. We were only in town for two nights. All in all the NH wasn't a bad deal with the breakfast. The pools at Larimar were nice and so was the beach. We drove to a secluded beach near Laguna del Limon and it was beautiful too.

The entire NH experience was great. Enjoyed the small hotel with the beautiful resort right there. Spent the week at the pool, quiet evenings in the room. My expectations were definitely met. Thank you NH!

Ok....here it goes... Yays: Checked in much earlier that we should. Breakfast was very good. Manager is extremely good, we had a complain (see below) and she left a good gesture in our room. Golf cart to now larimar is perfect where we took a shuttle to San Juan and Real Palmiers and used pool and beach. Also walked to restaurants close to the beach. Also joined the nightlife there and left our kids in club explorer....all free. Nays: A couple of staff facebooking/playing solitaire/not greeting. Complaint: we asked for ice, never came. We asked for a pillow, came 24 hrs later, bathroom was leaking water to the room. $58/person/day gets you all inclusive In now larimar but it's too expensive. You can eat out for much less than that especially where breakfast is included.

I liked this hotel and would stay here again if I went back to Bavaro. ..

This hotel was very clean and the staff was great! Always willing to assist. It is walking distance from the Palma Real shopping mall with restaurants.

We were staying there because we saved more money by booking a flight one day later so we stayed at a resort and then at the nh it was a good basic hotel in a great location. Everyone was really helpful and accomiadating. Breakfast had lots of choices. shopping was within walking distance. The only complaint i have is the bed was really hard.

My first trip to DR - Stayed at the HR Casino for 4 nights and it was great...but I didn't get any feel for Punta Cana at all so I decided to extend my stay and try something outside of the mega resort. Spotted this for $101/ night and since I'm familiar with the chain I booked it. All the other hotels were going for 3 or 4 times this rate BTW. Ok so its small ( 66 well appointed rooms.. loved that. Easy to get in and out plus the entire friendly staff knows you after the first day. AWESOME PART ALERT - Literally 20 feet from the from the front door there is a guarded gate that leads you to an all-inclusive resort. It's a big 4.5 star place with great food and lots of fun pools, and the best beach I've ever seen...and I've seen LOTS of beaches. As a guest you can 1) get a clear wristband that gives you full access to the all inclusive resort for FREE. Cant buy anything there though since its all inclusive. OR 2) for just $58 bucks you get a BLUE wristband and you are ALL INCLUSIVE at the resort all day and night. WOW. Cool thing is you can decide day by day what you want so your not locked into anything each day. Also - the hotel has a complimentary great breakfast buffet that lasts till 11ish..I ate there at noon one day... so your already covered for at least one meal every day. Add FREE WIFI and great 24x7 room service menu and I couldn't imagine a better deal. Highly recommend it and I will be back.

This hotel was good if you just need a place for one night while waiting to get to your bigger resort. It was very noisy and we felt like the rooms were metal storage containers all linked together. Very tin sounding and echoes They did how ever give you access for a price to use the neighbor property of Secrets resort that was good for a walk on the beach and use of facility if needed. .

we stayed for 7 nights and we really like the hotel and all the staff ! Rooms are clearn,comfortable...

Very placent place. Clean and accecible To most of the best location . Greate place.
