Shara Seigel, a spokesperson for the Four Points Punta Cana, said the hotel is structured to be more affordable than the surrounding options that are all-inclusive. Seigel sees the crowd being more leisure than business-oriented, vacationers using the property as a launching point to explore the village and surrounding beaches. While there is no official partnership, guests of the hotel are provided shuttle access to the Punta Cana Resort & Club, which houses the Six Senses Spa and Tom Fazio and P.B. Dye designed golf courses.
As of now, there are no deals or discounts worked out between the Sheraton and the spa/courses of the Punta Cana Resort. A bit of a head scratcher, for sure. And given that you can get a room at the beachfront Punta Cana Resort for only $3 more a night than the current rate of the Sheraton, we're wondering what incentive there is to stay at the latter (you might even be able to get a cheaper deal. At the time of this posting, you can find rates as low as $62 per night on Expedia for the Punta Cana Hotel while the Four Points shows an average rate of $107/night).
Have you stayed here already? Let us know your thoughts. We're curious to see how the hotel does in its first few months.
