I've been to a few different resorts in the DR. This just felt blah and antiquated.

The internet was not working the whole time we were there. I liked the beach and cliff area. It looks a bit beaten up by Hurricane Ike still.

I've just arrived back 3/6/2019 from this all "inclusive" resort this resort maybe was all inclusive awhile ago (50 years ago) but now it is ghost resort maybe 10% of this hotel is occupied about 15- 20 people at one time not more Only one restaurant is working all other restaurants are closed The hotel need major renovation and no property maintenance exist at present time at all. The worst in this all inclusive is weekend when local people with street girls renting this hotel for their good time You simply not feel yourself safe and admin should not mix all inclusive people with these weekend people in the same building The best part of this hotel just view on the bay. Food is OK consider that only 10-15 people eat in one time in place where maybe 100 persons could eat simultaneously - not to much variety but everything is fresh ORBITZ must remove this hotel from the all inclusive and remove it at all from the offering it to us at all

Staff seems quite good and friendly, but design and management are lax. 190 rooms, and one Very small bar. Bar is often closed as bartender has to help in dinning room at meal times. If any more than 10% of rooms were full it would be a real problem. No wine AT ALL in the property. On checking in was issued a room that was filthy, dirty towels laying on floor etc. They did move me to a fairly nice room. 76 steps from the bar to my room, no elevator. I would advise spending a few more dollars and staying somewhere else

Great location, Walking distance to beach and nightly entertainment

My experience was amazing everything was beautiful the food the people the beach the music the hotel was clean staff was outstanding

I had a prepaid reservation but still took 45 minutes to get room key. I was giving a 3rd floor room with view of dirt lot instead of garden view paid for. The toilet in room was broken had to place float in by hand to prevent from flooding room. I had paid for all inclusive but was provided with only 1 meal before informed must change bracelet if wanted to bring guest in. Was told by Maria Day manager this is rule the decided the night before only for Super Bowl week. Wifi was out in the room for 3 straight days and only worked 2 out of 7. On weekend hotel was over booked and the rules where no longer enforced on the African American guest, They were allowed to bring in Prostitutes at anytime of day, but the White customers had the rules enforced on them. On Saturday and Sunday the Manager was not available for many upset customers, who had rooms without A/C, refrigerator, or even running water. The hotel just kept filling rooms that were not up to standard to make a cash grab. It is very hard to enjoy a vacation when you must go to lobby to access Wifi and listen to disgruntled customers not getting any remedy to problem. I have stayed at this hotel on 3 occasions but I will never spend another penny in it. Orbitz needs to review it all inclusive claims. This is not the hotel for families or for white customers.

Hotel staff was ok. Hotel is old and dingy. Ok for the price but would not recommend for families.

The toilet was constantly messing up. For days we had to get maintenance in to flush the toilet. Horrible experience. On a positive note the workers were great and helpful. Something else the best was very hard.

The hotel has a different name (Bellamar) which cause us to circle the same place for about 30 minutes. They wanted to charge us $10 dollars per hour to use the hotel because we were early than the check in time. The rooms were falling apart and some of the lights were not working and the slider door couldn't be open. There was no phone in the room so if you needed to call from desk you were out of luck or you need to walk to the front lobby where the receptionist was always on her personal cell and lets not mention the "street girls" that kept coming in and out with different "friend" No activity for kids and the food was terrible.

Hotel is currently undergoing renovations so I understood my surroundings. I would just recommend hotel provide more than 1 pillow per bed and a couple more towels.

Staff very helpful a polite . They go beyond what you can think .

Nice staff. Walking distance to the beach and to local bars and restaurants. Great view from the pool deck.
