One of our Apple Vacations Sales Reps James Reese flew down to Punta Cana to do some hotel site inspections. I asked him to tell me all about it and here are the highlights!
I caught the Apple Vacations Charter on Airtran out of BWI. Check-in at Airtran was very smooth and very quick! I was approached by Carol, one of our BWI Airport Reps, as soon as I walked up to the Airtran counter. Carol made sure I had luggage tags, the Emergency Contact slip and double-checked that I was on the Apple Vacations manifest.
After being checked in, she directed me towards the security line — Quick and Simple! The Airtran flight-crew were fantastic! They were engaging, friendly and extremely courteous. The plane itself was modern and clean. Couldn’t have asked for a better flight! When we got the Punta Cana Airport I got my $10 Tourist Card and went straight through Immigrations — VERY FAST! Our luggage came out immediately — no wait.
There is a “Big GIANT Fan” in Baggage Claim that kept us cool! Funny — people are taking pictures of the fan now. Must be one of the new “sites” to see in Punta Cana!
After telling many people that I didn’t need assistance with my luggage, I walked over to Amstar and was promptly directed to my transfer bus. The driver had water and a cool towel waiting for me — NICE! The bus was clean and cool. Received a brief history of the island in route to my hotel. Amstar does such a great job!
Keep checking back for hotel reviews!
