Rated 5 out of 5 by GlobalDenizen8084 Another great visit
This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel. We previously stayed here in February 2013, when the hotel had recently opened. As I travel frequently for work, I try to stay at Starwood hotels whenever possible, not only for the points, but also because they are consistently a great hotel brand. We spent half our vacation here and half at another resort. From the very beginning with Julia helping during check-in, the experience was extremely pleasant! I was able to get into my room early, as everything was ready and my flight had gotten in early.
The hotel is located about 5 minutes from the Punta Cana Airport (PUJ). Despite its proximity, you don't hear the planes at all. The hotel has a free shuttle that runs until 11pm, so you don't have to worry about getting a taxi. At the airport, there is a telephone that is clearly marked "Four Points" that will dial directly to the front desk, so you can let them know that you have arrived. There is a separate shuttle that takes you to Playa Blanca, a golf course, the new Westin resort (another Starwood property that is beachfront), as well as several other locations. (This shuttle is different to the airport shuttle.) We only went to the beach this time. The shuttle runs about once an hour; the schedule is available at the front desk. It would be nice if the front desk had copies of this schedule for the guests to take, especially for when they want to know when the shuttle will be passing for pick up.
The room that we had was #223. It is relatively close to the elevator and the ice machine but we didn't hear them. It seemed much quieter than last time. In my previous review of the hotel, the most bothersome aspect was that at night, we heard doors closing and people walking. I don't know if they did anything to improve this, but we thought it had improved! We found this to be incredible, as there were definitely more people staying at the hotel this time, to include many families with small children.
A bit more about the room. There is no tub, just a standalone shower. No big deal for us, but something to keep in mind if you have small children and are used to bathing them in a tub. Again, the beds are really the big hit! All of the beds in Starwood hotels are spectacular, and this hotel is no exception. Two things we didn't like about the room. There was no minifridge to keep any food/water in. Also, you only get two bottles of complimentary water/day. As we traveled in August 2014, and the weather is very hot and humid, it would be great to have some more water to keep us cool.
There is a small, but functional, gym on the property, as well as a pool. The gym equipment is pretty good, but basic. There is no full body machine, but rather an elliptical, a treadmill, some bikes and free weights. The pool is only four feet (1.2m) deep and there are some nice chairs for lounging. Be aware that the towels they have by the pool are small; we ended up taking our towels from the room.
We had wi-fi and breakfast included in our stay. The breakfast improved from our last visit, and we were both happy to see some traditional Latin American foods -- since we are both from South America -- as opposed to just a typical continental breakfast. A special thanks to Juan, Argenis, Leiny, and the young boy (el muchacho pelirrojo cuyo nombre no sabemos) who were all very helpful and courteous during breakfast!
We can't wait to return on our next visit to Punta Cana!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Furlani I would stay here again !
An excellent "no frills" choice to enjoy the Caribbean. Great breakfast, clean facilities, wonderful beds and linen, great bathroom (no tub), this hotel is very close to the Punta Cana airport (15 minutes), and also to some beaches. There is no fridge inside the suite.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Runwaygirlsf Good hotel near airport
Hotel is located minutes from the Punta Cana airport. Complimentary airport pick-up was prompt (driver had a sign with my name on it at the arrivals area) and driver was pleasant. Hotel is relatively new so everything is shiny new and clean. A few of the staff are a little green and still learning the ropes, so sometimes requests require asking twice. However, Luis at the reception desk was amazing and made sure everything was solved quickly and efficiently. Rooms were comfortable with nice Sony flat screen TVs. Conveniently located across the street is an open air shopping with restaurants, shops and a grocery store. Overall this hotel is a great choice for those wanting to be close to the Punta Cana airport.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Princesstrj I got one night only
The Hotel was lovely is a nice area with shops and access to other locations. It offeres a free shuttle to several places including the airport and the beach. The only down fall is that you have to work within the shuttle schedule as there is only one. All of the Front Desk staff were awesome. We only stayed one night before checking into out resort. There definately needs to be more light in the common areas and floors as its meant to be sunlit but at night there is no sun so its very dark in the hallways. The Pool closed so early that we didnt get to use it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CorporatePilot Good choice if you cant find a beachfront hotel
This hotel is a bit far from the beach but a very punctual Shuttle Service won't allow you to miss it or the surrounding attractions. Shuttle runs hourly to Playa Blanca Beach and Restaurant, to the Westin Hotel, to La Yola Restaurant, to Ojos Indigenas Reservation, and a Golf Course (cant remember the name). The hotel is nice, new and very clean. Across the street from the Village that has some restaurants and shops. Staff was very nice. Waiters very friendly but sometimes a bit to antsy to get your check signed (weird....). Buffet style food did not have much variety or appeal but very tasty. Our first 2 days of breakfast had a nice variety of fruits and bread but it went downhill after that. Our last 2 days I had to talk to a manager who apologized but did not have means to fix problem. The hotel is 5 minutes away from the airport but far enough to avoid the noise. Very quiet and little traffic. The gym is nice but small and the pool was OK but simple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by asoumah First time in the Dominican Republic
The 4-Points by Sheraton in Punta Cana is an excellent hotel. VERY CLEAN, Modern and convenient! The staff (especially Jose and Luis) took excellent care of myself and wife and were very helpful in terms of establishing transportation. The Domincan Republic is beautiful but our stay at the 4-Points DEFINITELY made our trip. We will travel back to the DR next year and won't stay anywhere else but the 4-Points.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pauline11 Great hotel, great experience
This hotel is a gem in the four points category. the facility is spotless, the staff very friendly, the manger( Ingrid) is a total pro. the shuttle to the beach is wonderful , so is the closeness to the shopping village with supermarket and restaurants. One small point- some of the airline crews are a bit rowdy...

This Hotel in Punta Cana Dominican Republic met and exceeded my needs. Initially I was afraid I was going to be disappointed but was I sadly mistaken. I received personal service and I was impressed the staff all seemed to know my name even after a shift change. This personalized care and small jester can mean a lot when you are far from home. Thanks Sheraton

Walking distance from supermarket, restaurants, car rental....
One minute away from the airport.
If you're lookin forward to have a beach vacation, you can take the shuttle the takes you directly to PLAYA BLANCA.

We were told when we checked in that there would be a free shuttle to the airport at 5:30am. The next morning there was not a free shuttle only a $10 taxi!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ridwayi58 Punta Cana Village
The Four Points at Punta Cana Village is well located and very convenient for a short stay there.
The hotel is new and clean, the rooms comfortable, has enough parking space and in the Plaza just across the street you will find plenty of restaurants, bars and shopping options, like a pharmacy and a supermarket.
The cable tv is poor, it has neither image quality nor good programs.
I only wish that the towels were better.
Anyhow, it is a nice hotel, and I shall repeat it in more short stays at Punta Cana.

I stayed for five days and had a great time. The location was very convenient and so was the shuttle . I ate at the restaurant several times and the food was good. My only suggestion would be to change the in room menu and make it different from that of the restaurant . Service was good but waiters do need to pay a little more attention to small details. For example: I had to request for the food that was not eaten to be removed from my bill, twice my meals were incomplete and missing items described on the menu and bills were give to signed without a pen. My stay was wonderful and I will return again .

Rated 5 out of 5 Clean, Cool, Convient
The hotel is very clean, quiet, and Great A/C for cooling room. The Room was spacious with a separate living room from the bedroom. So any guest could come and not be in the sleeping area. It is very much up to the standards in the US and If you are accustomed to staying at the level of at least Comfort Suites, you will be satisfied. It is a great place to stay if you are looking for a Condo or Apartment after you arrive in the country. The rental car place is across the street and many other resturants within a 5min walk. (Good Eating). I would stay again and recogmend to everyone if you need a hotel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Marc58 Not quite as good as usual
I have been with SPG since 2001 and find myself for the first time rating a Four Points at less than average for service because of the dining room staff. The waiters in the dining room need better training. The Chefs did a great job on processing orders only to have the food get cold due to the fact they had to chase the waiters to have the food delivered. The waiters do not work as a team and help each other, if it is not their order they will not help out and deliver it to the table for their co-worker. Very unorganized dining room staff. Front desk was very helpful as usual.

The Four Points Punta Cana exceeded my expectations during my recent vacation with my daughters. The greatest selling point you have is the staff. Extremely attentive and professional. Call out goes to Cherwin from the front desk.
The transportation to beaches is very well executed
We look forward to returning next year
