Nice Stay with family
Suzanne2019,
Tue Jan 15 13:49:02 EST 2019
The hotel room was beautiful, generously spacious, tv in living room and bedroom, water pressure is good, food options are fair. If I had one critique it would be that the meat and fish was not cooked through thoroughly and I hate wasting food that way. Other than that the staff was friendly and accommodating. I had a good time

9 Days in Preferred Family Section
Caribiana, New York City, New York
Tue Jan 15 12:01:05 EST 2019
My extended family stayed in the 3 Bedroom Suite (Master Suite with living room connected to 2 tropical view suites. The 2 connecting suites each had double beds. Bathrooms all had standing showers, separate water closet and sinks. Master bath had double sinks) in the Preferred Family Section in the back of the resort. The view from the 5th floor had a 180 ocean view from a distance and a view of the length of the resort. There was a view from each of the 3 bedrooms and living room area. It was nice to sit on the balcony for sunrise and sunset. Our rooms were newer, spacious well stocked with towels and drinks. We received cleaning service, beverage stocking daily and turn down service almost daily (missed 2 evenings but no big deal). Preferred Lounge: My family used the lounge in the mornings and evenings going to and coming from the beach daily. We enjoyed the food and treats offered, plus branded liquors and espresso machine. I am a bit of an early riser (and espresso drink addict) so I needed my coffee fix in the mornings. Daily, when I went down to the lounge for coffee instead of walking all the way to Coco Cafe, I found the machine in the lounge had to be cleaned and could not dispense drinks. It didn't get cleaned until around 7:15am. An alternate machine could be found by the Preferred Bar. On one unfortunate morning, I found both machines were in need of cleaning so I had to take a grumpy walk all the way to Coco Cafe. There was another espresso machine in the Main lobby bar but that was not functioning either. I'm sure Flying Fish had regular coffee but I needed espresso. Rough morning but it's only a 5-6 minute walk from the Preferred Family Section to Coco Café. Beach and Ocean: Nice narrow beach lot but spacious enough for everyone at the resort. The sand closest to the water is clean but the Preferred and non-Pref sections further back had some twigs, palm tree pieces sticking out. Ocean is sort of clear but it depends on the day. Water is a little rough, so you can try your luck snorkeling off the beach but our odds resulted in 3 / 9 days of sort of clear water. There are large 5 foot pots that were placed at the bottom of the ocean located by the buoys/roped off area. spans from Dreams LRM, Catalonia next door, then Iberostar and to light house bar near a dock. On the days with better water visibility, we saw round stingrays, ballyhoos, blue tangs and lots of other tropical fish. Those large pots shelter the fish, coral and other marine life. We saw some people standing on those pots. DON'T STAND ON THOSE POTS! DON'T STAND ON THOSE POTS! DON'T STAND ON THOSE POTS! Preferred Beach: The staff was pretty good at checking people's room numbers and keys. The key cards show Preferred Club on the applicable keys. This Preferred Beach section allows you to get some drink delivery service, a breakfast bar, an exclusive grill station during lunch, snacks and appetizers in the afternoon, plus a dedicated bar for liquor and coffees. It was very convenient since there were a few times my family wanted to skip the lunch at the restaurants. Balinese Bed Show & Towel Saving: A few times while laying out in the Preferred Beach chairs behind the Balinese beds, we get entertainment by some chintzy non-preferred family who sneak their way into a balinese bed and try to stay there as long as they can until the staff catches them and they feign ignorance of the day rental requirement. One family got away with that for two days until they were sent back into the regular section. There was also the lounge saving game at the Preferred Section. Some babushka came in early and placed all sorts of personal items and towels on 10+ lounge chairs at the front of the beach and only half her family showed up the entire day. Perhaps a rule where 1 person can only save 2 chairs at a time would curb that obnoxious practice. Food: The food is decent. DR grows some of their own food and doesn't have to import everything. No food related illnesses during this trip. We enjoyed the French and Japanese restaurants and ate at those a la cartes twice. World Cafe has lots of food to choose from, Flying Fish has great lunch made to order. Coco Cafe is great for espresso drink and desserts. We never went hungry. Drinks can be made as strong as requested. 3 Take Aways: 1) The waiters, bartenders, concierge staff and butlers work so hard, please show your appreciation with tips. 2) show respect for other guests by not playing the save the lounger game for 10+ seats. 3) Lastly, DON'T STAND ON THOSE POTS THAT SHELTER THE FISH!

Service is terrible, food is OK at best. Do NOT pay for preferred as there is NO difference. The language barrier is a major problem, be sure you are fluent in spanish. Might be understaffed when we were there but it was completely unacceptable.

Missed The Mark !

The overall a stay was ok. The beach was very clean and provided a relaxing environment for the week. The service was seriously lacking. Each bar made each drink differently they were to say the least inconsistent. If you are going to stay at this resort it is worth upgrading to the preferred club. Each experience within the preferred club was great ! Outside of that everything seemed like an inconvenience to the staff. By the end of the week we were low on small bills an went to several outlets to trying to get smaller bills including the Front Desk, Currency Exchange, Bartenders and Bell staff. We offered a tip to change the money and they were unable to make change. We were asked to purchase something at the gift shop in order to get change. We spent $30.00 and they were not able to provide us change from $40.00 so we were forced to charge the items to our room. At which time we went to the front desk to pay in cash the $30.00 item and guess what ? They had small bills. The entertainment was awful. The shows in the evening were not up to even a mediocre standard. We did not have a beach party which would have been welcome after listening to Karaoke from the other guests. We did have a few bright spots with the staff Victor and Zoleidy at the preferred bar were excellent. Champion and Eddy in the Entertainment Staff were also very good at trying to get the guests involved. Security was always lurking in the Shadows which provided and uneasy feeling like you were being watch at all times. I definitely would not be in a rush to return to this resort.

Nice Beach; poor entertainment; mediocre food and service

The rooms are nice and large. The shower is great - tons of water pressure. Comfortable beds. The beach is also nice. Zero seaweed. Some rocks on the left side, but not a big deal. The bars are also great. Generous with the alcohol and the bartenders are all friendly. My biggest complaint is about the lack of entertainment. It felt like there was nothing going on. Compared to other resorts in the caribbean, the entertainment staff here made little effort to talk to guests. There was also very little night time entertainment. It is not a resort meant for young adults or teens. Another complaint is about the mediocre food and service. The food is not very good, but it is not terrible. The selection is the same everyday. The quality of food at the restaurants for dinner is not very good, but some items are good. The service is also very inconsistent. For breakfast, we almost never were given water or coffee unless we asked a server multiple times. On most days, we just ended up getting coffee at the cafe after breakfast. Usually, half the table would get cutlery, while the other half didn't. At dinner, especially at the Italian restaurant, the drinks would come out very slow. We ate there twice and received our drinks after the main course. Overall, there is a lack of consistency in food and service that needs to be addressed. The resort is nice, but not meant for young adults.
