Beautiful hotel grounds, friendly staff. Ocean is very dirty and there were lots of people getting bite by jelly fish. Food was ok at the buffet. Have to go right when buffet opens to make sure food is hot. Have a real shortage of towels. Can only get 2 towels in the room and have 1 beach towel a day. I would really think twice about coming back to this hotel they really need to get more staff and fix all the problems. The showers are very small and there's a lack of hot water and air conditioning.

Was pleasantly surprised as this was a last minute get-a-way and had never been to DR before. Our trip was April 13-17, 2015. The resort was a 45 minute taxi from Sto Domingo airport. We used the shuttle service offered by the hotel, which was $200 USD round trip for 2 adults ( which was quite reasonable as we have traveled to caribbean before and pay quite a bit for service)The resort is beautiful and the rooms an grounds are immaculate. One issue is POOR wifi service, it is only available in the lobby and as part of the 'all inclusive' you had 1 hour free per day. We were on vacation so I guess that was a good thing! If you have been to the caribbean before you will be VERY disappointed in the water from the sea. It IS NOT aqua....looks more like the Jersey Shore! (but warmer temp) although this did not deter travelers from swimming. The beach is beautiful with an abundance of trees, lounges and cabanas! We took a daily boat excursion to Catalina Island, a national park where we had a great time with beautiful sand and sea. The staff was wonderful and accommodating....not one single issue. There is a language barrier as the staff speak mainly spanish but made every attempt to answer questions or find someone who could. Many couples as well as families and there seemed to be plenty of activities to occupy children. There was nightly entertainment which was fun but NOT Broadway, but we were NOT in N.Y. so we thought it was great that it was even available. The cost to fly into Sto Domingo was 1/2 the price of Punta Cana and the travelers were from all over the globe (which is something we enjoy). I would definitely stay again!
Very bad services

Me and my boyfriend stayed there for four days and these are the things that makes us decided to never go back again: when we arrived to our room the fridge was open and with towels inside, the food was everyday almost the same, nothing fresh, they told us we have one hour of free wifi but that never worked and when we told that to the people in the lobby they just said that the internet had some problems, the jacuzzi were always with cold water, and the shows at night were very boring. The only thing we enjoyed was the great massage at the spa with very nice people who really understand that the most important is to do a good job and to be kind with the guesses.
Much needed getaway!

We were a family of 5 (3 kids, 4, 10 & 13) travelling with a very large wedding group. The resort is gorgeous. The beach is beautiful and so are the pools. The rooms are very nice as well. The wedding was amazing and went without a hitch and the reception was also very well done.
Now for the issues:
-I had sent an email 2 months prior to our arrival date as this was our first time south with our kids and requested adjoining rooms. We were advised this would not be a problem. Unfortunately, this was not the case. We arrived at 11pm and were told there were no adjoining rooms or even rooms next to each other. There was a room in between ours and the kids room. The lady advised us to come back at 10am the next day and they would be able to switch our rooms. Went back at 10am and was advised we would have to go back the next day at 10am because there were no rooms to change to. I was very upset by this because here we are unable to pack and feel comfortable with the safety of our kids. Since we were going on an excursion for the full day the following day, I advised them our luggage would be in the lobby and we expected to have adjoining rooms upon our return. Thankfully, as soon as we returned from our excursion we were given our new rooms and they were great.
-Went several times to try to make reservations but the only times we were able to get were at 9pm or the day we were leaving which did not work. We did get a reservation that my friend was unable to use one night and the restaurant was more than half empty the whole time we were there. Very disappointing.
-What the heck is up with those hamburgers?? They never really seemed fully cooked and were spicy. I tried them twice and was disappointed both times as were other people we were with.
Overall, would I go back? Yes, if there was a really good deal. There are so many places to try that I probably wouldn't. Next time I would probably try a resort right in Punta Cana to avoid the 90 min bus ride (we were aware of this before we went and it wasn't that bad but would avoid if possible)

Nice place. The staff is great. The hotel is beautiful Ala carte restaurants need a lot of work on their menu and food. The buffet restaurants were very good. Rooms were nice, clean and fresh. The maids did a great job of keeping them clean all day with fresh towels and cleaning. On site entertainment was fantastic.
I would recommend this resort to everyone.
