I didn’t like anything. I do not recommend this place to anyone. It’s in terrible condition and the pool is super dirty. Nothing like the pictures. Only one bell boy for the luggage, the food is terrible and difgusting, my kids didn’t even want to eat. It was a total nightmare. I also Experience racism with the customers which has nothing to do with the hotel. But they do have a certain race that goes to this hotel and makes you feel uncomfortable if you aren’t from where they are. My point here is that everything went wrong and I regret every pennny I spent on this hotel. Never again. DO NOT GET THIS HOTEL !!!

Property was well located with infinity pools. The staff was very strict about wearing mask. The front desk was very friendly and helpful in all occasions. There was not a brochure explaining all the amenities of the resort. Such as the gift shop location. And the dispensing of towels for the beach. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. They want to downsize while the food. The food was not as good as I had hoped it would be. Sometimes the Mexican and Italian buffets were good but otherwise the food was not tasty. Overall the resort is a great resort for the money.

Most of the staffs were rude, no manners at all. They are racist. Bathroom had 2 towels for 4 ppl. Water was cold. They told us there was 3 restaurants when we got there there was one 1 restaurant and another one that we had to pay. Food was okay. Mostly pork, if you dont eat pork you are screwed. They have one restaurant that you can book 2 days in advance, I thought it was something special. When we got there they one had few things and the other ones you have to pay (in an all inclusive hotel). The worst part they didn’t even have the things on the menu. Toilet was clogged. There is so much things wrong with this hotel. Never again. Please read the reviews carefully before wasting your money.

Amazing resort, nice staff, good food. Lots of variety. Breathtaking VIEW😍 I enjoyed Every beautiful sunsets. So worth the money. Would love to go back.

Everything was bad in the hotel specially the location the restaurant not appropriate for me

It was very good for the price. Didn't enjoy the rather limited selection of drinks, also premium drinks could only be purchased for cash.

I was staying with my kids. My room was not available at check in. The room was not clean. Customer service was horrible.

Great place! All included ! By far the best hotel in bayahibe

Rooms beds are confortable. There are not many variety of food. Good. Service.

The staff in the front desk were horrible. There was only 1 garbage barrel, and it was the bathroom one.
