Im from Spain but have been living in Punta Cana for 9 years now. I like to travel and visit new places. I have a full guide of the area with beach, restaurant and many more tips. Will email it after booking is done.
Ricardo purchased this Studio in 2011
Why Ricardo chose Cap Cana
Fishing Lodge units have the quality of a 5 star resort but have double the size of 5 star resort bedrooms. Cap Cana is luxurious, exclusive and it has fantastic beaches and pools. Its only 10 minutes away from Punta Cana Airport and 5 minutes away from Punta Espada Golf Course. Ask me also for 1 bedrooms, 2 bedrooms and 3 bedrooms. Dont expect lots of people in Cap Cana. Try an all inclusive resort in Bavaro if you are looking for many people.
What makes this Studio unique
You have now 6 restaurants and 3 bars in Fishing Lodge. Free wifi in lobby plus a beach bar and restaurant walking distance. Also a nice Paella Restaurant and a Pizzeria in the Plaza. Punta Espada Golf Course is a must for golfers. Ask me about the special prices for green fees.
Check-in: 2:30 PM
Check-out: 12:00 PM
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
The staff was amazing, so attentive and nice! The room was set up very nicely however it had a musty smell. We were there for a week in January. We didn't have maid service but didn't need it. Two bath towels and two pool towels weren't enough for a two week stay, glad we packed a couple extra towels. BTW, don't forget you need to supply your own toilet paper and paper towels. Our room (2111) faced the marina, the view was beautiful. The room also faced the dining/entertainment area. Music each night until 10 or 11, not a good choice if an early bedtime is your preference but fun if you want to enjoy the fun from the privacy of your room, The food was very good. We decided to go with the all inclusive plan after we arrived. To our surprise, the all-inclusive plan included room service. We rented a car and bikes. Though we had fun on our car adventure, I'd recommend taking the tours that are available. Driving in D.R. is ...shall we say....creative! Not for the faint of heart. We were even pulled over by a military roadblock, mostly an uneventful occurrence but my heart did skip a beat or two. Regarding the bikes, it would be a fun way to cruise the big resort but our bikes did not arrive. It was ok but it would have been a fun and easy ride around the huge complex. I'd encourage every first time visitor to ask for a tour of the property when you arrive. One of the staff took us for a ride in a golf cart around the resort on the third day. I wish we had done it sooner! The beach is not on the property, it's an easy bus ride to the very nice beach. Food, drinks, lawn chairs and water toys are available on site. Food and drinks are part of the all-inclusive plan too. US dollars are widely accepted. Plan to bring lots of tip money and don't expect to find a place to make a change. Bring 10s, 5s and 1s for staff tips. Overall, I would recommend it. The resort was clean and beautiful.
Beautiful condo and resort. 5 star grounds, pools and restaurants. Very secure.
Cap Cana Alsol luxury Fishing lodge was awesome. Beautiful buildings and grounds. Cheap transportation inside Cap Cana, $3 taxi service plus free shuttles to beaches and Blue Mall. Fishing lodge has several shops an restaurants. El Potico Italian restaurant was our favorite. Best fishing in the Caribbean. API Beach by the Marina was beautiful with nice bar and restaurant. Went in early November, low season, very few people and great service. WiFi is very slow and only in a few areas. Overall a great trip!
Thanks for the review Mike.
We have used VRBO for many many years. Stayed everywhere from Cozumel to Tennessee and haven't been disappointed once. I'm sorry to say this was a disappointment from the get go. The air conditioner did not keep the room cold. It worked enough to keep it cool but never refreshing. The refrigerator or mini freezer did not keep our drinks or food cold. The stove top would not work. The worst part of the whole place was the bed felt like you were sleeping on a hard board. I actually stuffed pillows under the fitted sheet so that I could sleep. The place felt dirty and not well kept. The sheets were very stale and stunk. It wasn't very clean. The furniture had stains and was as hard as the bed. The shower had a rain shower head but it hasn't been maintained so it squirts water randomly instead of straight down. The cable was very fuzzy and not visible. The resort that the condo is in feels deserted. A BUNCH of empty store fronts and empty condos. We had booked this place for 7 nights and finally after 2 gave up and had to find another place to stay at our cost. I contacted the owner to try to get a refund and he was not accommodating at all. Never apologized for the inconvenience or condition of the condo. I don't want anyone else to have to deal with what we did on a vacation which is supposed to be relaxing and enjoyable.
Dear Renee, I am sorry you did not like the place.
I expected a bad review from you after you threatened to publish a bad review because you decided to change places and look for a place with more people. I have a cancelation policy of 30 days and you after the condo was reserved for you for months you just decided you wanted to go somewhere different. I cannot just refund because you changed your opinion.
Beds are fantastic and yes they are hard. If you dont like hard beds than obviously its not the bed for you. The place was clean, and the AC works perfectly. In case a condo is not clean enough I have my cleaning staff from monday to saturday to help but you just decided to change to another place.
Fishing Lodge is a quiet place for sure, we have 400 bedrooms in the same space than Bavaro hotels have over 1000 rooms. So its always quiet. We do have 6 restaurants and 5 bars open and over 15 shops.
We have a beach onsite walking distance but we have 2 more fantastic beaches in Cap Cana. Api Beach and Juanillo Beach, both fantastic.
I am sorry that you did not like the area and that you decided to change places.
Great stay! Condo is exactly as described and portrayed in pictures. The quieter of the two large pools is steps from the patio. Everything was very clean. Ricardo was very responsive and easy to work with, both leading up to trip and during stay. The resort staff were incredibly friendly.
A few tips/opinions:
- Confirm beach shuttle pickup time/location with the guys outside reception vs relying on what’s in the daily printed flyer. The shuttle was a no-show at Juanillo Beach one day.
- Juanillo Beach is pretty, Api Beach is better - quieter, more secluded, more beach things to see (shells, crabs, birds). You can cut through the gravel “roads” to get there - you don’t have to go all the way back out to the main road. Or take the shuttle.
- Look over the sides of the fishing piers to see tons of tropical fish!
- Eat at La Yola at least once. It’s a beautiful setting and the food is good. It’s just at the end of Tiara - you simply walk through the military post separating Cap Cana and Punta Cana. This is less scary than it sounds and takes only a few seconds to get through. The first time we did it we had the resort shuttle run us over so the driver could talk to the military guys for us. The other times we just walked over/through on our own.
- If you say hi to the gardener, he might hack open a fresh coconut for you so you can have coconut water.
- If you’re used to using a washcloth when you shower, bring one along. Likewise if you plan to cook in the kitchen, you may want an extra dish towel.
Thanks for the review Kim.
! BDR Studio
I just returned from Punta Cana 4 days ago. The property was amazing. The property staff are wonderful, nice, and helpful. The Condo was absolutely everything that I needed for my stay. We were very happy with our decision to stay at this property. Ricardo is prompt and very resourceful with answering questions and giving suggestions. Bavaro Adventure Park is approximately 20 minutes away. We went horseback riding there. There is also ziplining, dune buggies, zorbing, fly simulator, Segway, pool, and Bungee trampoline.....at Bavaro Adventures. I highly recommend renting a car to get around if you like to venture out. Juanillo beach is about 12 minutes away by driving. The resort has a shuttle that makes several trips to the beach everyday at no charge. There is a small beach walking distance at the marina. But, Juanillo beach is a must. There is a grocery store as you leave the airport. I also recommend the party boat excursion with Scape Park. It includes snorkeling, a ride along the coast and entering the laguna. This is my 4th visit to Punta Cana. I usually do all-inclusive. I much prefer going this route. We bought breakfast foods.....had a big breakfast in the morning. Snacked throughout the day on fruits and chips. We had a nice dinner at Andre Carne's (I highly recommend this restaurant) which is about 20 minutes away......and the other nights we pan fried meat, fish, potatoes, and vegetables......very quick meal. There are pots, plates, utensils, in the room......... I cannot say enough about my stay. It was AWESOME!!!! Will definitely be returning. Thanks a million Ricardo.
Thanks for the nice review and all the info for the future guests. Glad you enjoyed it.
Amazing, perfect and more than I expected
My wife and I hadn't been on a true vacation for quite some time. After much research we discovered this place and couldn't have expected it to be as amazing as it was. The condo itself was perfect for us, but the people that worked at the resort made it that much better. Add to this, the professionalism and friendliness of Ricardo in booking the room and the transfers was outstanding!
Thanks for the nice review.
Glad to hear you enjoyed.
