    Trustworthy and Excellent Transport Company
    We used DAT for transport to and from PUJ to our resort for our trip to the Dominican Republic. Both times, our drivers were friendly, personable, and engaging. The transfers were on time and comfortable rides. Would recommend this company and use them again.

    Great service
    I booked DAT after my original Transportation couldn’t get my pickup location correct. I’m so glad I changed. DAT was waiting for us when we landed with a sign that had my name on it so it was easy to find my ride. They were prompt with the pickup at our hotel on the way back to the airport. The drivers were courteous. Would definitely use DAT again when flying into Punta Cana.

    No brainer- go with DAT
    DAT was professional, comfortable (AC and water in transportation), and had wonderful customer service. The drivers were informative and seemed like safe drivers. We were the only passengers and didn't have to wait for multiple passengers or stops.

    Professional and reasonably priced airport shuttle
    I would use DAT again for my next trip to the DR without hesitation. They were waiting for us at airport, driver very friendly and professional, safe driver, clean, air-conditioned vans with seatbelts, we did not share the van with others. They sent email reminders. On departure, they were at resort a few minutes early, again great service. Easy to book online. For family of 4, each way was under $40 total.

    Reliable Transfers operators
    It was hassle free travel with DAT. We had booked a private vehicle with DAT for getting to our resort from Punta Cana airport and for return as well. There was no waiting time at the airport for getting vehicle and for our return journey our driver arrived on time for pick-up. Both drivers were super-friendly and helpful.

    Best Private Transfer I’ve Experienced
    DAT provides excellent service from start to finish. Booking online was easy and straightforward. As soon as we landed in the DR there was a gentlemen waiting for us with a sign with my name on it. He verified my info and immediately brought us to the van. The van was clean and cool. AC was perfect! They had a car seat put in as we requested it. The ride to our hotel was smooth. Return was the same. DAT sends you email reminders so you know what time you have to meet their rep when departing. I highly recommend DAT and will definitely use them again when I return to the DR!

    Professional reliable service
    We chose DAT based on seeing reviews on the Hilton la romana fans Facebook page. The price was competitive and the booking process was straightforward. Their instructions on arrival at Punta Cana airport were spot on. After a 9 hour flight it was overwhelming to exit the airport to loads of drivers vying for business. However following the DAT instructions we quickly met our driver and he gave us bottled water which we were grateful for given the heat. Our return trip was just as organised and we were informed in advance of the pick up time from the hotel and the driver was there on time. Overall we’re glad we went with DAT instead of going with the hotel organised transfer.

    Professional & Prompt
    We thoroughly enjoyed our private van for our party of 7! We didn't have to wait for arrival of depart because the driver was at the airport and resort promptly. We booked Sat 1 to 2 months in advance and received a confirmation email immediately as well as texts while in Punta Canta. We will definitely use the service again.

    Definitely book
    We booked online and it was a seamless process. We indicated we needed a car seat during booking. The van and car seat was clean. The drive was nice and courteous. We emailed prior that we had VIP fast track through immigration and were greeted by the driver at the VIP arrival. We booked round trip transfer and it was definitely the most decently priced. Definitely book if you need private airport to hotel transfer.

We had a terrific experience with DAT, everything was very easy and seamless. I booked online a roundtrip transfer from PUJ airport to Hilton La Romana for four people. There was someone waiting for us at the airport when we arrived which was a big relief. There are a lot of taxis and transportation companies waiting for arrivals and it could be very overwhelming, we were very glad to have booked in advance and knew exactly what we were getting. We were picked up in a large, air conditioned van that could probably seat about 10 people. With Covid it was important for us to have a private ride. The cost was very reasonable, about $85 for four people each way (1 hour drive).

Our driver Manuel on our way back to the airport was an absolute delight! He picked us up at the hotel at our scheduled time and throughout our hour drive to the airport he told us all about the local Dominican culture, some history or the surrounding areas and answered any questions we had. His English was very good and he gave us lot of recommendations for our next trip. We would love to have Manuel as our driver again and would highly recommend anyone traveling to the DR to use DAT as their airport transfer choice.

From Booking to Departure DAT was excellent to me and my family. Kevin greeted us at the PUJ airport and delivered us to our resort in timely fashion and very comfortable. When President of the DR closed the airports for COVID-19 I rushed to the airport via taxi to try and get a flight out, but was unsuccessful. Needing to return to our resort and uncertain how we would get there my wife called DAT and they immediately sent Prince Royce to pick us up. This was a very stressful period for my family and me and DAT did not charge us for this leg and Prince Royce refused any gratuity. After securing emergency departure tickets out of Santo Domingo I contacted DAT to see if we could adjust our reservation. Rafel was very supportive of our situation and despite being very busy with everyone trying to leave the island Rafel and DAT wereable to accommodate my request at a very reasonable charge. Again Prince Royce arrived timely to pick us up and get us to the SDQ airport in plenty of time. Prince was very compassionate with us and provided my family a sense of comfort. After arriving at SDQ Prince went above and beyond by escorting us in the terminal to ensure we were ticketed and our plane would depart. Not knowing if we would be stranded in Santo Domingo or need to return to Punta Cana Prince's kindness was appreciated. At no point did Prince ever say no. As a result of the SUPERIOR customer service provided by Prince I will only use DAT when I travel to DR. I could not have had a better experience during a very stressful time during the COVID-19 crisis. Thank you Prince, Rafel, Kevin and DAT.

We have used DAT many times and have never had a problem. On this trip they professionally managed our situation when one of our party ended up on a different airline, thus was at a different terminal.Upon our arrival to our hotel the driver discovered some items left in the van (my daughter's shoulder bag had spilled). He was very diligent in checking the vehicle to be sure we had everything. When we subsequently discovered that she thought she had lost something, I sent an email and received a very fast response. With only one recent exception the drivers have spoken English and we have had no issues with language barriers. We find their pricing reasonable (taxis historically have charged us $10pp each way) and enjoy not having to wait for others as part of group transfers. Their most current system seems to work seamlessly and I received an autotext reminding me of our departure pick up time. Highly recommend!

We use DAT every time we visit Punta Cana and have never been disappointed. The price for a private transport is very reasonable, they are always on time with a name sign, very polite and the transport is very comfortable. I will never use another transport company. I wish they were at other locations in the Caribbean. Louis was our driver for this trip and he was fantastic.

We booked Dominican Airport Transfers (DAT) in October 2020 to take us from the Punta Cana airport to the Bahia Principe Ambar and back. We had been to Punta Cana a number of times but this was our first time using DAT. The driver was there holding up a signboard with my name. We were transported from the airport to the resort efficiently in a private van that was modern and clean and the driver was very courteous and cheery. They follow all the Covid-19 protocols.

The day before leaving for the airport, I emailed DAT to confirm our return arrangements. Erika responded quickly to confirm. For our return trip to the airport, the driver was on time and actually waiting for us which was a relief. The van used on our return trip to the airport was as nice as the van used on our trip to the resort, the trip was quick and uneventful. Our driver was very pleasant and courteous.

We were very happy with the service we received from Dominican Airport Transfers and their price was very reasonable. We would definitely recommend DAT and will definitely use them again in the future.

Our experience with DAT was excellent and very simple. Just make sure to walk all the way outside and then down quite a bit past other vendors as they'll have a large board with upcoming arrivals and some staff holding the ones they expect soonest.

Also make certain that you notify your hotel when leaving. We were thinking our driver was late but really our hotel didn't allow them past the gate check even though we had checked in with the valet for departure several times.

They were waiting for us 20 minutes early but we thought they were late. Turns out they were their all along but the hotel doesn't allow them up till the guests are present (which we were just a screw up by the hotel).

DAT was very responsive over WhatsApp and it was popular with businesses on the island so I'd recommend getting it downloaded and setup before you go. Thank you for an easy transfer to and from the airport!

This was our first visit to Dominican Republic we used DAT based on reviews. So glad we chose this company. Easy on time pick up at airport and Super Friendly Drivers... Greeted immediately after walking through exit, offered nice cold ice water for our trip to Hard Rock . Cant remember young mans name but he was an excellent representative. Our pick up to Return to the Airport is when things got stressful. We were picked up ontime by Joel Carela, a young professional driver. He was courteous and engaging asking about our trip. We had just exited the property when my wife and I realized we left our Passports in the Hotel Room safe. We explained this to Joel and he calmly responded no problem and returned us to the property. Well we had some confusion at the hotel so it took almost an additional hour to retrieve our passports. Needless to say we were close to panicking about missing our flight(LOL) but the whole time Joel was assuring us no worries he would stay with us. We ended up making it to the airport quickly and safely on time. I cannot say enough about the positive approach this young man took as well as the service commitment of DAT to have their employee stay with us that additional hour (not even asking for additional fee, which I would still gladly pay) You cannot go wrong with this Transportation company and just reaffirms why I look at reviews on Trip Advisor.

The service worked exactly as described. We booked private round trip transportation between the Punta Cana airport and our resort for 4 passengers. DAT was waiting with our name on a sign when we arrived at the airport, provided each of us with a bottle of water, and took us directly to our resort. When it was time to return to the airport the van arrived exactly at the time that was arranged. The drivers were friendly and we would highly recommend using the service for your airport transfer.

I highly recommend using DAT. We just returned from our July 2021 trip from New York to La Romana. After doing some Googling, I came across DAT via many positive reviews. I gave them a call to ask some questions and used that guidance to book our transfer for 19 people (all ages) from Punta Cana Airport to our hotel in La Romana. When I booked the transportation, I wasn't sure how many bags everyone would bring, so it was suggested that we book for a few extra people just in case. Great idea as it ensured we had enough people for a large bus (an actual bus! with two seats on either side of the aisle) and it was only our group. I received an email confirmation/voucher with instructions for where to find the driver for both trips. They were exactly where they said they would be at the correct time based on flight numbers/flight times. I admit I was nervous not knowing what I had gotten into with only an email for confirmation a few months ahead of our trip - but there was no need to worry.

The pricing was very fair for the number of people and distance we traveled. The drivers were courteous, perfectly punctual, and drove safely. It was a relaxing ride both ways and I would 100% use them again!

We used DAT to transfer from PUJ to our resort and back again. Reservations were easily made on line, confirmation text was received the day prior to arrival. The drivers were waiting with signs for both arrival and departure and were exactly on time for pick up. The van was clean and we felt 100% safe in the hands of our driver.
