Nice staff but terrible hotel
Oct 23 2017
The restaurant and bar staff were awesome. Our room was old, bed uncomfortable with aged mattresses and the A/C did not function properly the entire stay. We went to the lobby desk 3 times to complain and ask for another room but we were told by Emmanuel (VIP Manager) and his staff that a better room was not available.

This place needs all new showers and toilets. We had to mess with the toilet every time we flushed it.

Air Conditioner was the wrost even after they switched our room. Guess is what they can do. The VIP has alot of benefits and one of them is 24 hr. Room service. My kids ordered three different times on different days ice cream "something in the menu" they took the order and it never delivered and if you call to find out the status they won't pick up. Seaweed was horrible but uncontrollable. Beach is nice overall hotel and employees are very nice great attitude and energy. If you tip them they won't forget you. Premium drinks with vip. Cigars are a gift not all that and everyone gets a bottle of brutal. The maid does pop up early. Fills the fridge up with beers soda bottles come and sprite and alot of waters. They will deliver juice if you ask guest services. Most channels are in Spanish but who cares you are there to enjoy. Ask for a main pool room great music. Then party starts at 4 and beach is close.

Good Hotel, staff very friendly, food at the buffet was okay, restaurants food was good. Beach was amazing, some day there was a lot of seaweed but cannot complain, I would recommend to hotel to have new sunbeds in the beach, most were old and I fell a couple of times. Staff was very friendly. Waiting for the trolley took a long time, it was faster to walk from lobby to hotel rooms. Entertainment was okay. Hotel grounds were clean and pretty. I do have to say that maybe hotel needs to check door lock before allowing customers to go in the rooms. Security came two times to our room to change the battery packs to our room as the key was not working. This is twice in one week were we had to wait for them and change battery packs and security took for ever. Another family had the same problem and we had to call the reception area for them as it was late at night. I would go back to hotel as the beach area and some restaurants were very good.

AC was LTA wife got food poisoning the second day. We were abandoned by the bus on a city tour. My dive excursion was the highlight...we will NOT return to DR, and we have been literally around the world, the worst. If there was a satisfaction guarantee I would demand a 100% refund.

Very Entertaining Hotel
May 24 2017
This was the very first all inclusive vacation that I have taken. I have to admit I was extremely nervous about traveling out of the country for the first time knowing that there was going to be a language barrier. A lot of the hotel staff could understand and speak English. I also appreciated that an apple vacation rep was there to meet us on our second day to answer any questions that we had, and help us to book our excursions. The fun and exotic culture of the Dominican really was the highlight of the trip. There were a lot of fun games and music and dancing at the pool. The swim up bar with entertaining bartenders was a fun time! I would highly recommend this hotel.

Great Vacation! My group choose to upgrade to VIP for the minor extra cost. When arrived we were greeted personally and were given directions and explanations. The rooms were large and well kept by the house keeping staff. The only issues with the room were a leak in the room after a heavy rain storm and the limited water pressure in the shower. The resort had enough pools for the people and the beach was amazing with plenty of activities. We spent most of our time in the "sunken" pool bar. The food was excellent at each of the restaurants and the buffet. Very great experience!

Aug 16 2016
Check in time over one hour. Hotel is old and in need of major repairs. Bed hard, 2 pillows per bed and they were flat, no facecloth after requesting for 5 days. Restaurant hard to get into reservation must be made in person at 8:00 am two days before. Even though restaurant is empty they won't take walk ins. No internet service in hotel except in lobby. Air conditioning in rooms are Old and many in my party had non working units. The pools are not clean and need to be marcite is chipped and rough. On the weekends they allow vendors around pools. Calling front desk is almost a waste of time takes forgive for them to answer. Most of the staff only speaks Spanish so difficult to communicate. I do not under any circumstances recommend this hotel. The only thing I can say is Felipe representative for Apple vacation is very helpful so if you find yourself there he is the most helpful.

This aging facility has poor service, fair food options and poor customer service. Water in hotel is not potable. You will get inconsistent information on how to reserve at the specialty restaurants. A call for a porter may not get relayed IF someone answers the telephone .

If you bring US dollars make sure you have lots of $1 bills to make exact change. I had to buy extra things just to get to the exact amount because they stated they didn't have US change. Also. Don't drink the water out of sinks, however the rest on the water at the resort is safe to drink! Overall great trip, friendly people, interactive employees, and meeting people from all Over the world is nice!

Poor service, run-down rooms, above avg. food, nice beach

Stayed Dec 29, 2017-Jan 5 2018 We arrived at the resort (myself and my 2 adult kids) at about 2:15 pm and was told our room would be ready at 3:00. We finally got the room at around 6:30. I am not that picky about the room I stay in. I like it clean, half decent water pressure in the shower, comfortable bed. The room we finally ended in up in was the 3rd room they had given us. The first was never ready (they kept telling us 15 minutes until I asked to speak with the manager - never connected), in the second room we were sent to, the room hadn't completed being cleaned (no towels, some beding not there, ...). The 3rd room was very run down. Toilets with seats that were broken, crooked light switches, no lights to see into closets, safe faceplate was broken, no floor towel, no hand towels (and multiple days they didn't replace the towels at all). There were 3 towels. No amount of going to front desk or calling made any difference. The unit had two rooms and each had a bathroom. About the 5th night, we returned from the evening outing and the floor of the larger of the bathrooms was flooded with water dripping from above. After multiple calls to the front desk, I was told that no one was on duty and it would have to wait until the morning. About two hours later, knocking at my door woke me up and it was a maintenance person. I spoke with the Sunwing rep. on-site but nothing was ever done. We made the best of this expense vacation (the beach was nice and the food was above average) but I would never recommend this establishment.

Wonderful holiday

I stayed at Carribe between 11th and 19th December and everything was great, starting with the room, which was very close to the beach and the pool, with the food that was good and fresh and culminating with the professional staff, cute with the tourists, making you feel great.The room on the ground floor was large, bright, clean, just like in the pictures and the cleaning was done every day. The pool and the surroundings were clean, everything was green and blooming, the birds around the hotel gave you the feeling that you are in a micro reservation and the beach was gorgeous, clean and always found free sunbeds despite the poor habit of tting some towels at 5 o'clock morning. The food was tasty and always found freshly made gratin, seafood and many other dishes. The meal could be taken in the main restaurant but also at the beach where there were always potatoes, chicken, hamburger, hot dog, pizza, sweets and fruit. And let's not forget to add that here I drank the best juices without the taste of chemicals and extremely tasty. I think there is still a lot to say, but I do not want to get bored, so I will say that it is the most pleasant hotel I stayed in, and most of the staff that was great. Thanks Carribe Club !!

We stayed from Dec20th untill Jan04th. we were amazed by the professionalism of the whole enterainment team. But mostly we would like to thank Virginia and Kiwy from KidsClub for their kindness and patience. My sons Ryan & Samy really loved them. Both ladies were exeptionnals. We also would like to thank Simon and Etienne from MaxiClub, they were just great. We also would like to thank Jerry for his volleyball organising and most of all for his great and energetic dancing. From Ryan, Samy, Assia and Abdel, thank you very much.

Spent 15 nights, from Dec20th til Jan04th. Room 2133. A family of 4. Our stay was excelent, the children loved every minute of it. It was the same for us the parents. But... but... but... 1.. The gym is a joke. It's situated inside the spa, so when the spa is closed, the gym is closed too. It is very small, it's wide enough to hold 2 treadmills and 2 bikes. The equipment is quite old and rusty. 2.. On our departure day, I myself called customer service at 5:40pm to get our luggage picked up and also for a taxi, the lady (miss Eliana) told me the porter will be there in 5 minutes and by the time we'll get to reception we'll find the taxi waiting for us. Our flight was at 08:30pm. We waited, and waited, and waited, when the porter came it was 06:20pm. We arrived at reception but no taxi yet. I spoke face to face to Eliana and she told me that the taxi is coming. We waited, and waited, and waited, when the taxi came it was 07:10pm (ie, 20 minutes before our flight closing time). We arrived at the airport checkin desk at 07:40pm, and as you guessed it, the flight was closed. Because of that useless Eliana and that lazy porter, we missed our flight and we spent the night at a nearby hotel. We also missed our connecting flight. It's true that we had a memorable vacation, but it has been tainted by those two incompetent individuals.
