Perfect family trip

The beach needs to be cleaned more frequently. The water was full of seaweeds.

There are better places to stay

This place is massive. And the resort tries to keep up with housing and feeding an extraordinary amount of people. Although our room was comfortable, and the beach was nice enough (if you enjoy endless rows of lounge chairs), there is a lot to be desired. Our fridge was broken, our room was only serviced twice in a 6 night stay, the towels are gray, but meant to be white, there were never any beach towels available, there was often a line for dinner, and when making reservations, we couldn't get into a restaurant until 9pm. I've stayed at many all inclusive, and although this one wasn't bad, I wouldn't go there again.

Great vacation!!

Hotel was beautiful . Service personnel were great. Andy the quest service personnel was excellent. Booked a la carta restaurants for us. Only negative part of the trip was the beach. To much sea kelp or sea weed washed up on the beach. But it wasn't just our hotel it seemed to be all around the hotels.

Friend trip

My overall experience at the hotel was a good one. The staff was very welcoming and friendly some don't speak much English but they all were friendly and had a smile and very helpful. The hotel is very big and you have to take a trolley to get around. Take a lot of money because everybody wants a tip and the activities like zip lining etc are expensive. During swimming with the dolphins you cannot take your own pictures so at the end they offer you your pictures but you cannot pick and choose which one you want so they gave us all the pictures we took but it was $75. Basically you had to pick all the pictures or nonE. The food to me was not all that great it lacked flavor it lacked the Dominican culture I did not like the food at all. They were cheap with towels and washcloths I would have four dirty towels and they would only replace it with two clean towels (annoying). Besides that it was a great experience and I would recommend the hotel to a friend.
