family vacation

Traveling with an almost 2 year old baby, this hotel was just right. Plenty of property to roam around on from the large pool areas to the wide beachfront. Lots of shaded areas to escape from the carribean sun. And many activities available at the hotel like trapeze and rock wall climbing or just chill out in the pools. Check in: always slow in the whole touristic areas of the dominican republic. And its always a 3pm or later check in time and for some reason the rooms are never ready. I always thought that reservations were made so that the hotel can be ready for the customers arrival. It is an big inconvenience for the traveler to have to wait hours even after check in time to get a room. At least have some air conditioning in the lobbys to keep travelers cool. Again, this check in problem is not just at this hotels, it also applys to others I have stayed at in the dominican republic. Hotel: wide spanning hotel with two big pools and a very nice kiddie pool with slides. The beach is awesome, clean and beautiful turquoise waters and soft sand. I prefer this beach area (arena gorda) better than the bavaro beaches which is closer to the airport. Seems like less seaweed and clearer waters north of bavaro beach. The hotel, like pretty much every other one, is open to all the elements of the carribean, so expect to be in the hot humid air as soon as you come out of your room, and dont be surprised to see bugs or little geckos running around. Again: pretty much all of the hotels in the area are open to the elements. Bugs and little animals will be seen, so dont be surprised. Entertainment: hotels offers shows at night and a bunch of different activities during the day and night. Tour group activities are available as well like zip lines, boogie cars and many more outside of the hotel. Kid activities are nice too. Rooms: basic rooms with decent space, nice balcony, big bathroom, surprisingly comfortable beds. In room mini fridge which is stocked with drinks and replenished everyday is nice. Food: buffet is decent. Not the best or worst, but decent. They do offer sit down style dinners as well at the hotel which reservations must be made and the food is definitely much better and its also all included. Many bars on the property too. Staff: very attentive to all your needs. Cleaning staff do a great job maintaining the property and the rooms as clean as possible. The entertainers do try to engage everyone which is nice like rounding people up for their pool volleyball games or dancing at the beach party at night. All very friendly and most spoke english and or french. I cant remember passing a staff member that didnt say hello with a smile or try to make my almost 2 year old son smile. Overall: great vacation, great kid friendly hotel, great location. Only set back is the check in process.

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

Since rooms are almost never ready on time, wear or change into bathing suit and enjoy the pool or beach while waiting for your room to be ready when you arrive at the hotel. You can leave your bags with the bell boys and return to pick up your room keys later on. Just make sure you get your hotel bracelets from reception so that you can access the resort or security will kick you out.

Good Time

Great place with good food. Superb beach. Only negative thing was that the staff of intertainment didn't seem to care when we needed them. We had to go see supervisor to get service.

Mixed bag

Basically its 4 star service and a 2 star facility. Buffet is what you would expect for this price range but the reservation restaurants are below what I expected. Some guests in our party had bed bugs in their room, but otherwise the rooms were passable. Staff is great. Friendly and accommodating (especially with a little tip money to break the ice). Beach is fantastic and pool is dated but ok. Lacks sufficient activities for kiddos and even teens. Nightly shows are ok except be careful as some content is not appropriate for kids. We stayed 7 days. If we go back to DR I would probably stay somewhere else.

Great vacation with friends

Good hotel for the value. The staff upgraded us to an oceanfront room, which was gorgeous. The beach was very nice. Great assortment of people (families, nationalities, age groups). The resort is huge, with plenty of activities. Drinks were a little watered down and the bar selection wasn't the greatest. Food was pretty good... nothing to write home about. But, we didn't get sick, which was the most important thing.

Do not do the upsell dinners - they are not worth the extra money.
