Beautiful beaches and resort

Hotel is very nice, staff is very friendly. Waiters are clueless about keeping your drink topped off at the meals. Beach is second to none...beautiful! Food takes some getting used to but remember you are in a third world country and don't drink the water!!

Beautiful pool/ocean...Beware the food

I used Dominican Airport Transfers to shuttle from the airport to hotel ($29 R/T each per), and it took about an hour to get there because we dropped other people off at other resorts. The driver only spoke Spanish and all other passengers were Latin American. If you don't speak Spanish, go with Club Caribe shuttles. There were five of us at the resort, and it was a relaxing atmosphere. The ocean is right there - white sand and turquoise, warm water - and the pool is very clean and stretched throughout the resort. About half of the resort visitors were at the pool at any given time, and the other half used the beach chairs and thatch umbrellas. Watch out for occasional rocks/coral on the bottom at shore, as one kid busted his foot and blood was gushing. Another hotel visitor tossed bread around in the shore waves, and tropical fish swarmed around us by the 100. The food was always available, at buffets around the resort or at restaurants from 6:00-10:00pm. I recommend getting reservations to restaurants for your whole stay ASAP. They fill up fast, and then you're stuck eating the same buffet food for afternoon lunch and dinner. The buffets had a much bigger selection than I anticipated, and the food was pretty decent...until you eat the same stuff for 5 days. Negatives #1: One day, my room was never touched by housekeeping. No replacement of soap, shampoo, or bed re-making. My friend and his fiance had the same thing happen, so they searched out a maid and give her $5, telling her to mop the (sandy) floor, clean the room, and do the bed. I guess if you don't tip everyday, they skip over you (?). Negative #2: All five of us threw up during our five days there. Two of the cases were probably due to too much drinking, but three cases were due to eating something that had food-borne bacteria. Unfortunately, I woke up on check out day with (I'll spare the details) food poisoning that lasted from 7am all throughout the day until I finally arrived back at LAX airport at 10pm PST. It's now the next morning, and I'm still feeling weak. Other reviews mentioned the food also, but I thought my constitution made me immune to tainted food. I was wrong. Eat at your own risk. We stayed 6 days and 5 nights. I think 4 days and 3 nights would have been perfect.

Dining tip: In Hotel

Have a plan for eating each day for each meal, as it's easy to find yourself over-indulging in the abundance of free food and desserts. Feeling stuffed after every meal and packing on 6 pounds in 5 days wasn't a good plan.

DO NOT STAY!!!!

It was terrible! Do not stay here! -The service is terribe -The rooms aren't clean -The staff doesn't even say hi when you walk by -DO NOT book any of the shore excurshion at the hotel they will rip you off. Book them on the beach much better.(the hotel will tell you not to do this because they are not good, DO NOT LISTEN) -All drinks are bottom shelf for free -If you want anything like a Jack and Coke it is $10 a drink -Room service is not included! -The hotel keys break all the time and it is a hike to get to the front desk -All the resturants are Buffet except the french and the hibachi that you need to make reservations for.We went to make reservations for those resturants the first day we got there and they said they won't be available until the week after so 5 days after we left. TO GET INTO THESE RESTURANTS YOU NEED TO TALK TO A MANAGER AND TELL THEM HOW DISSAPOINTED YOU ARE WITH THEM. THEN THEY WILL GET YOU IN. -We did the speed boogies,they had to change ours 4 times because we broke down and the 5th one went on fire and they told us to stay in it as it was going up in flames.(WE BOOKED THAT THROUGH THE HOTEL) -We booked parasailing and they told us it was cancelled because of the weather was so bad instead they booked us on a party boat ride to swim with the sharks which was alot more but the parasailing was never cancelled to get more money out of us and there was parasailing everywhere.(AGAIN BOOKED THROUGH THE HOTEL STUPID IDEA) -If you loose a hotel key or towel key it will cost you an arm and a leg (I'm glad we didn't) -There isn't alot to do at all, the club is a teen and kids club at night and the shows at night are all for kids nothing for adults.(MAGIC SHOW, BALLOON MAKING ETC)And there is absolutly nothing to do during the day unless you pay to do something.NO ENTERTAINMENT! STAY FAR AWAY!!!!!

Could be much better

When we first arrived we were not given the room with direct pool access as I requested when I called the day before. The help does not speak good English and it is hard to communicate with them. We did finally switch rooms and the direct pool access is worth the extra money. We had an outdoor jacuzzi tub, but the jets did not work. I liked that the beach was never crowded and neither were the restaurants and we never waited to be seated. The service was good, but the food was not so good. At the Mexican restaurants there were a bunch of tiny ants on my desert plate. Also, the lobby and hallways and theater are not enclosed, so there is no air conditioning and it was very, very hot!!! Also, the hut that houses 3 restaurants does not have air conditioning. There is not that much to do with kids at this hotel. It is not geared toward families, as there are 10 bars, and not really any activities for the kids. The shows in the theater were not that great, and it was very hot in there. Plus they started too late, 10:00 pm every night. By that time, the kids were tired. Also you cannot drink the tap water and so we didnt drink the water at the restaurants either, just in case. Also, every morning at 4:00 am we were awakened by drunks coming home from the bars. Also, the dance contests were pretty provocative and my kids didnt need to see that. We went on two excursions. We had to travel at least an hour in opened trucks, breathing in gas fumes. We went to a beach to drive speedboats and go snorkeling. We had to go down a dirt road and ended up at a place with garbage outside and shops where they bothered you to buy things. Then we went on the speed boats which was fun and then snorkeled. It was ok, but we could have just rented the speed boats at the hotel and also went snorkeling from the hotel. The over 2 hours wasted to get there and back was ridiculous on the hot truck. I did like the peacful beach and the pool was ok. The service was fast, but I would not recommend this hotel, especiially for families.

The speed boat/snorkeling excursion is not worth it. You can do the same thing right at the hotel without going on a truck breathing in gas fumes and without air conditioning. And you save at least 2 hours when you could be doing other things.

Good value, temper expectations

A good value for a vacation to the Dominican Republic, if you keep your expectations in check. The Good Hotel and room were clean. Be sure to tip your maid for better service. Pool was excellent. Beach was beautiful, no trash in the sand, water was crystal clear. The Chinese restaurant, Teppanyaki and steak/lobster restaurants were good. However, Teppanyaki fills up very quickly, reservations were required and frankly, you should just wait around one evening to see if anyone cancels. Another avenue is to tip the hostess. Price negotiating. Every price is negotiable. From excursions to jewelry to t-shirts to you name it, the price listed is not the final price you have to pay. Negotiate. All inclusive. Food and drinks are all included, which makes your life much easier. No need to worry about where to eat or how much you'll spend on food. Made the vacation much more enjoyable. The Average Breakfast and lunch options at the buffets were average. Do not eat the hamburgers; taste nothing like an American hamburger. The service at check-in and check-out were pretty slow, even though there wasn't a line. Also, the currency exchange would not exchange a travelers check for pesos, but they would take an American dollar for pesos. The travelers check and dollar are supposed to be treated the same, but they weren't. Nightlife was just ok. There was usually a band every night playing covers of American pop songs, but that's about it. The Bad Cash only. This place runs on cash, make sure you have it with you. Also, always ask for the price in dollars due to the fluctuation of the peso. Hassled by merchants. There was a market one night selling jewelry and other stuff. The vendors were very aggressive in trying to get you to buy and didn't let you browse. Also, watch out for vendors if you take an excursion like deep see fishing. They will try to sell you everything before they let you leave on the bus. The Punta Cana airport. It's pretty much a cluster, the ticket agents/airline reps aren't very helpful. Also, for whatever reason, their list of prohibited items in carry-on bags is different than in the USA. Example: an umbrella was confiscated supposedly for the metal spines of the umbrella. However, the person behind me was allowed to pass security with an open, half-full water bottle. How does that make sense? Overall, this vacation was a good value and was enjoyable. However, you should temper your expectations: the food is buffet style except for a couple of restaurants, you need to have cash on you at all times if you want to buy something (I wouldn't recommend debit or credit cards for ID theft reasons), and the excursions, while fun, are all far away from the resort and will take much longer than scheduled. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for first-time trip to the Dominican who doesn't want the hassle of having to search for food or for attractions. The hotel has them all and all the excursion representatives are right at the hotel. If you're looking for high-end accommodations or really wild nightlife, this is not the place for you. But if you're a couple, a family or a group of friends looking for something that will meet just about everyone's needs, this is a good choice.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Dolphin Explorer is the better of the two "swim with the dolphins" excursion. You cannot take pictures with your own camera though, but the park is much nicer than the other. It's a pretty good bus ride (they pick you up) from the hotel, and it's going to take more than 4 hours. Plan to go in the morning and don't plan to return until 2:00pm at the earliest. But well worth the expense.

Beautiful location

There were many things to do - tour a nearby town, go on the zip lines, parasailing and shopping to name a few. There were a couple of destination weddings while we were there, and the noise factor (people talking loudly outside our door till 3 or 4 in the morning) was a bit of a problem. The resort definitely had enough to keep the grown-ups happy and partying till the wee hours of the morning, but I didn't see very many kids. I know that the resort provides some things for the kids to do, but it seemed more like a place for singles and couples in their 20's and early 30's.

Haggle, haggle, haggle! Never take the price they give you. This is for the vendors who are not part of the resort. They inflate the price by at least 150% usually. My father was quoted $60 for a bag of mamajuana (totally rediculous) and talked the man down to $8 (still a bit steep from my point of view for a tree root). Also, it seems that all the vendors carry basically the same stuff.
