Karisma Hotels & Resorts reports that Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana is open and welcoming guests following the passage of Hurricane Maria. The property reopened on Saturday, September 23 after temporarily relocating guests during the storm, and all guests are now back on-property.
Karisma said that Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana reopened with only minimal changes to normal hotel operations. For the first part of this week, guests may find some restaurants closed and select room categories unavailable temporarily.
Late last week, the Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism (MITUR) reported that tourist destinations were open and running normally following Hurricane Maria and that all airports, ports and land routes are open and operational. These announcements come following the U.S. National Hurricane Center discontinuing hurricane and tropical storm alerts for the country on Friday.
Flight operations resumed at Punta Cana International Airport September 21.
Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana is a family-friendly resort with Nickelodeon-themed touches like Slimings, character visits, and accommodations like the SpongeBob SquarePants-themed, 2,300 square foot Pineapple Villa. Guests can also enjoy water slides, a beach, babysitting services, a spa and adults-only dining at Kitchen 23 by Le Chique.
Hurricane Maria is set to bring tropical storm conditions to North Carolina as it passes well to the east of the southeast coast of the United States over the next day or so.
