We had read lots of reviews before we went and all we can say is what more do people actually want from a holiday!! Yes the room has a fusty smell but once you pop the ceiling fan on and air the room is soon goes. So many plus's.... Being waited on for all the meals was great, the beach was fantastic and the beach boys brining you drinks all day I mean how fab is that and don't forget the chaps that clear the seaweed every morning they do a great job! Maids are fantastic, They do a great job making the room look special with flowers and crafted towels. The women staff in the restaurants especially at the beach front were fantastic and so funny.....come on fellas let your hair down and have some fun like the ladies do!! It is the cleanest place I have ever visited no bugs at all, the beach loo's are cleaned a gazillion times a day they were the cleanest beach loo's ever, Maids dried the sunbeds off in the morning if it had rained over night. Drinks brought to you at the pool side it was lovely but bear in mind to show appreciation they like tips so take plenty of $1 notes. Lots of restaurants to choose from the Italian was our favourite very yummy, but I was impressed in the whole two weeks each meal was fresh and not dried out like some meals back home. They do ask you on arrival if u want to upgrade which is nice but the prices were steep, if they made them less expensive we might have been interested. We had two amazing trips swimming with the dolphins and a Caribbean cruise Tova private island/ snorkeling/ BBQ and amazing starfish both well worth the money. We are already looking to go back can't wait!!!

Disappointing on so many fronts! Bad food, bad service bad rooms. Generally a complete disappointment I would never stay here again or recommend it to anyone. Good luck finding any employee who speaks English.

not worth the money

This is our 4th trip to the Dominican Republic. 1st time at this resort. Took 2 days to get a room with a/c AND hot water.(balcony door was NOT open-wall card switch falling out of wall was the problem!) Finally hotel upgraded us to a better room . Rooms smell VERY musty. Had to wash everything and put suitcases outside to get rid of the smell upon our return home.Our mini fridge did not keep ANYTHING cold. After 3 requests we just gave up. Meals and service were inconsistent. Did eat next door several times-glad we had that option. Edward in the piano bar and Yesmini at Sea Blue bar were the only ones who knew how to make a drink. BTW-Diet pop is NOT 1 inch of regular Pepsi and 3 inches of soda water. This TOTALLY unacceptable for a diabetic. Make sure they give you "light Pepsi" from a bottle. Room lighting is horrible. If you like to read before bed be sure to bring your own light! Picked up a bacterial bug there also. Cannot drink(brush teeth etc) with the bathroom water. I was VERY careful and still got sick. Husband had an omelet that was way under cooked. Be careful your food is completely cooked. POSITIVES: best beach and pool chairs I've encountered - pretty grounds and beach. Housekeeping is excellent. Aerial yoga was amazing. After reading some of the other glowing reviews I had to wonder how we could be staying at the same resort?????

Relaxing break in beautiful surroundings

From the moment we arrived we started to relax. The complex was compact in comparison to the sister family hotel next door. However it had everything to make it a fabulous holiday. The staff were friendly, but not over bearing. You were not constantly being pressurised by an animation team to join in, in fact not sure anyone was responsible for this role. There were activities available but it was entirely up to you as to whether you joined in. I attended a body balance class which consisted of three of us and the instructor. The pool nearest to the beach was great for swimming lengths and getting exercise. One of the best features was the number of sun beds on the beach and around the pool. Unlike other all inclusive resorts there was only a very limited number of towels on beds so plenty of sun beds to choose from. Unlike other Caribbean resorts the clientele were from various parts of the world and the hotel was not overrun with loud Americans, for us a definite plus. The bedrooms were very large however not sure of the benefit of a large circular bath that was not a jacuzzi. Some might feel the decor was dated but the rooms were clean and comfortable. Wi if access was only available close to the main reception but not a major issue for us. There were a number of restaurants to choose from and the Thalia, the tapas and steak restaurant were our preference. The food was good but not outstanding Whilst there was seaweed you could enter the sea in the clear spots and enjoy a swim in the warm water We would definitely go back as it ticked a lot of boxes - adults only, multi national clientele, friendly staff, beautiful surroundings, good choice of restaurants and very relaxing.

A very relaxing holiday booked to celebrate a birthday. The fabulous weather was just what we needed. All of the themed restaurants served fantastic food and the staff could not do enough to make you feel special..
