Excellent Place

Upon arrival, checking was nice and quick. Location is excellent. very nice garden and very well kept. Rooms need an upgrade. but bed and pillow comfortable. Food was very good. Especially, The Rodizio restaurant .(You need a reservation). Drinks were very good and the best latte at coffee place. Plenty chairs at the beach and you can walk over 2 miles of beautiful beaches without a problem. Staff was great and very pleasant. A Lot of entertainment was plenty. We will be back in August again. If you have time take a City Tours. Love that place

Family vacation

I previously stayed in this resort about 7 years ago and it is somewhat the same as before just not as full. Puerto Plata lost a lot of tourist attraction and the resort shows that. It isn't as crowded as before and the food is more American than Spanish which I was really looking forward to the Dominican flavors. We went out of the resort to Ocean World which was we did the dolphin encounter which was the highlight of our trip.

Solo long weekend

The actual hotel was beautiful, they had live peacocks and flamingos and that gave the hotel a very vintage look. The room was a little dated but the staff was amazing, very welcoming. The food at the buffet was great, can't say the same for the a la carte restaurants. Overall, if you're looking to relax, this is ideal.

My First Caribbean Hotel Experience

It is my first Caribbean hotel experience so please take into account this while reading my review. As far as I see Dominican Rep as an island has limited potential an capabilities about luxury. So I can say that hotel was not luxurious but this can be one of the best ones in the region considering their potential. In a city tour we picked some people from other hotels and they did not seem better than this. Let me list my observation bullet by bullet: 1) Staff: Many of the staff are very friendly (except for 1-2 of them) and willing to solve problems. But I can discard some exceptional cases considering their really long working hours. 2) Rooms: Rooms stink because of humidity. This maybe common in the island. We asked room change twice, check several rooms but nope. They were all same. Our friends stayed in a different direction, they told us they were ok. So North facing rooms may be better. 3) Food: Food was ok compared to all inclusive hotels. Every piece were tried to be refilled. I did not experience a missing meal. 4) Drinks: They serve local drinks in most of the bars and in the restaurant. Only in their main bar they have many international options and they are decent. Coffee was average. 5) I did not feel that pool was clean. 6) Beach was nice 7) Sea was clear but not like I imagined, it was like an ordinary seaside in Europe. 8) Animation at night was good 9) Disco at the weekend was crowded and fun.

Perfect spot for vacation

Checking in was really bad. Extremely slow and it is done manually. Room was nice, large and clean. Very good pillows, a little warm. Food was good. The Rodizio Restaurant was great. Staff was ok. Some really good, especially at the bars. Excellent coffee. The beach needs some care. Chairs were old and the towels area very far front the beach. The water was amazing. I will come back. I recommend this hotel. Forget about Internet. Expensive and does not work in your room or on the beach. Entertainment was ok. TIP: Make reservation in advance. Don't miss the Rodizio Rest.

Paradise

The only complaint that I have is that it took me 3 hours to check into this hotel. There was absolutely no direction stating that it was a necessity to PRINT OUT my hotel reservation. Apparently, even though it is the year 2014, a proof of email on my phone is not enough to check into the hotel. After I was made aware of this situation at the time of my check in, they would not print this out for me. I had to pay $3 to use an hour of their internet. It took 20 minutes for them to finally realize that their main printer was not hooked up correctly and I would not be able to print it out from their computer. We finally convinced them to let us use a computer in the back room. Three hours later we were in our room ready to start our awesome vacation. Other than that, this place was pretty good. Was not that great. Frozen drinks weren't quite frozen. Rooms were nice and clean Beach was awesome. People were friendly.
