    Just what the DR needs and great sense of timing.
    It was not clear from the advertisement as to financing and ownership.
    Hope it Dominican owned.

    The location will be good for business travelers. There are government offices within walking distance or short drives. The US and Canadian consulates are within 3-4 km of the location. However, there is no beach.

    Yet, the nagging question is the tourist zone nearing overcapacity of rooms and straining the infrastructure?



    Regards,.

    It's not the typical AI hotel that's prevalent in the area. It's more designed for business travelers like the Four Points in PC village.

    There are signs for at least one other hotel of this kind on the boulevard turistico between the airport and Coco Loco.

    Yes definitely geared for business travel. Too bad. The poor flight attendants and business travelers will soon be staying in hotels like these instead of AI beach resorts. Oh well.

    And Marriott has already announced their new hotel. (Google translation.)

    "The Marriott International hotel chain announced the creation of a specific platform for the establishment of all-inclusive luxury resorts and the management of five resorts in Mexico and the Dominican Republic, where it could invest 800 million dollars.

    "In this regard, he announced the signing of management contracts with hotel promoters who plan to build five new All Inclusive resorts in Latin America with an investment of 800 million dollars (714 million euros) and that will open their doors between 2022 and 2025.

    "Marriott plans to build its platform by initially taking advantage of the following full-service and luxury brands it has in its portfolio: The Ritz-Carlton, Luxury Collection, Marriott Hotels, Westin Hotels, W Hotels, Autograph Collection and Delta by Marriott.

    "The joint offer of these five hotel complexes will add more than 2,000 rooms.

    "In Punta Cana, a 650-room Autograph Collection resort will be built in collaboration with DIT Hotels that is expected to open in 2022."

    Four Points is great. Very professionally run. (Although it is Four Points by Sheraton, I think that is a Marriott brand now too.)

    Right. The closure of Majestic Elegance was noted on 8 August in the Attacked and Left for Dead thread. Majestic is in a unique situation because of a still unexplained assault that occurred there. Other major players in the hotel business see that for what it is and are moving ahead with major investments in the same market. But, as noted these new hotels are oriented more to business clients and stays not tourists.
