I think it's discussed here.

And that link you posted is in Puerto Plata, not Punta Cana.

I have Sprint and have used their free add-on several times. It's only unlimited data if your account has unlimited data--otherwise it "pulls" from your data package. It includes texts.

Calls are indeed minimal.
