Girls Trip ’17: The New Majestic Mirage Resort Punta Cana

Girls Trip Punta Cana

My girls and I were long overdue for a Girls Trip. So we took a six day vacay at the Majestic Mirage in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. We had an amazing time. But not without a few bumps in the road. Let me start off by telling you guys about the resort. The Majestic Mirage is a new five star, all-inclusive resort that just opened in December 2016. The all suite resort features 8 restaurants, 6 a la carte, and the Sports Bar that’s open 24 hours. There’s also a coffee bar with snacks, and 24 hour room service. A Casino. And Disco. The works.

The resort has two sets of accomodations. The Mirage Club is the adult only section, and features 8 private swim up pools, two VIP Lounges and a host of other amenities. The rest of the resort is family friendly with access to the same amenities with the exception of a private restaurant, the private pools and an adult only side of the beach. We booked a one bedroom suite with an outdoor jacuzzi in the Mirage Club. Here is where things get a bit rocky. We were treated like royalty upon arrival. The hostess lead us to a lounge area with an array of desserts. And served us champagne while we waited for our paperwork to be processed.

Now upon reading reviews, I saw some guests mention that there was construction going on next door and they had to have their room changed. Although those reviews were months ago, I put in a request when I booked the trip (a month in advance) for a room away from construction. Just in case. Of course we were given a room with a construction view. But I decided to take a look anyway. When I arrived at the room and walked on the balcony, I discovered that we were dead smack in front of the construction. An active construction site with men working at that very moment. Right across from our balcony. You know, the one with the jacuzzi. I was like oh hell no and marched right back to the lobby.

To make a long story short, the majority of the rooms in the Mirage Club (adult only section) was facing the construction. There was a line of just as angry people in front of us demanding a room change. The hotel staff told us that they couldn’t do anything until the day after next as they were at 100% capacity. I knew this was a lie and refused to accept the room. My cousin has asthma and I get bad bronchitis. Besides, we paid a lot and was really looking forward to using our balcony and jacuzzi. So I wasn’t having it.

After waiting over an hour we were able to switch to a room in one of the family buildings (but still enjoy the adult only amenities). The catch was the room had one king size bed and an extra bed, instead of two queens (as requested). We would stay in this room for two days, and then be switched to a similar room on the same side, with the two queen beds. We gladly accepted as the view was EXTREMELY better. The resort switched our room in two days as promised. Here is a peek inside of our room. The bedroom had a sliding door. There were two bathrooms and a rainfall shower. An office area, a sitting area with a TV, and another TV in the bedroom. It was beautiful accommodations. Majestic Mirage Punta Cana One Bedroom Suite Double Beds Majestic Mirage Punta Cana One Bedroom Suite BathroomMajestic Mirage Punta Cana One Bedroom SuiteMajestic Mirage Punta Cana One Bedroom Suite Balcony with Jacuzzi

Yeta was a big help in getting our room changed although she wasn’t our Butler. She personally took us to view our room and made sure it was to our liking. Yeta made sure that we had everything we needed, and also put in our dinner reservations for the two restaurants that required them. She was the best and we were so grateful for her. Our Butler Adrian was ok, but he didn’t really stand up for us when we needed our room changed. I had to take charge and stand firm. He was also a little slow to respond to messages. But in the end he did better. Rafael at the desk in the lobby was extremely rude and disrespectful. He needs more customer service training or a new job.

We had an amazing time after the room fiasco was sorted out.

We were able to enjoy our balcony with the nice view. And utilized it to take plenty of photos. I even slept in one morning and ordered room service for breakfast to enjoy on the balcony. I had the Vegetarian Breakfast and it was delicious!

The food at the resort was delicious overall. The Seaside Restaurant breakfast buffet had a nice view of the beach.

There was an assortment of dishes and treats to choose from. I fell in love with the Mangu (mashed plantains) Traditional Dominican Breakfast Dish. I did have to mention to the cooks a few times to use separate pans, grills and utensils for non-meat and seafood items. Everyone doesn’t eat meat, including myself (I’m a Pescatarian). My cousin is also Vegetarian/Pescatarian. So I was adamant about this.

Majestic Mirage Buffet Dinner

The dinner buffet had a nice variety. One night I enjoyed some grilled Tuna Steak and Cuttlefish with a huge salad on the side. The next night, the spread above (and more.) It was food heaven and we took advantage of the unlimited supply.

Majestic Mirage L'Essence Blue Moon Dessert

We definitely indulged in the selection of desserts as well. This is the Blue Moon dessert at the L’Essence French Restaurant.

Majestic Mirage Kabuki Hibachi

Our favorite meal was hands down our dinner reservation at the Kabuki Hibachi Restaurant. We also enjoyed the evening sushi bar here on a few nights, including our first.

The Cafe Espanola Coffee Bar made amazing Frapps that will give Starbucks a run for their money!

Majestic Mirage The Majestic Cocktail

The Majestic Mirage had nothing but top shelf liquor stocked at every bar. This was amazing as a lot of resorts charge extra for top shelf. “The Majestic” specialty cocktail was our favorite drink at the resort. We especially loved sipping it on the beach. It tasted like orange creamsicle pops.

Speaking of the beach, it was amazing. So much so that we ended up not doing any excursions and opted to relax on the beach and enjoy the pool everyday. We enjoyed a lit foam party at the pool. A couple of “interesting nights” at the Disco lol. Amazing nightly shows including a Broadway Night, and Circus Night.

Our favorite part was lounging on the beach though. There was an abundance of cabana beds and beach chairs, regardless of the time you went out.

Overall we had an amazing trip. It was so nice to get away with my girls, catch up and simply enjoy each other’s company. We’d definitely go back to the Majestic Mirage Punta Cana. But only after that construction next door is done. I can’t deal with that stress again!

  1. Punta Cana is a great vacay spot! I’ve been to the DR twice and can’t wait to get back there again. It’s always great to see “us” traveling and seeing other parts of the world. I just wish there were more single brothas that liked to travel as much as us sistas do. LOL

    • Lol I totally feel you. There was definitely a lot of couples, and I noticed this in Cancun as well. However, It was super weird as the coupled up men (and married) were still in our faces. With their partners right there. I don’t know if they were swingers, had open relationships or what, but I didn’t want any parts of it! smh
