Restful yet busy

Was a very nice resort with well designed rooms and amenities. The pool was well maintained, clean and clear. They could use more umbrella's but if your going to the sun I suspect they fell you want to tan. I left my glasses in a restaurant, and the quality of the attention to retrieve them was not great I lost in the end, my own fault I know for leaving them, but customer service would of been them running right away to retrieve for me.

Very Good But Not What Expected

I had to keep reminding myself that this is a Third World Country. Because my expectations were not Thrid World. It definitedly could have been cleaner. When I first went to my room I smelled mold. I walked in and it hit me. Second, the language barrier was difficult. For example, I kep complaining about my air conditioning not being cold enough but it was because I had it on the hottest setting and not the way it'd be in the U.S. at all. On the flipside. the ala carte restaurantst are good. So far I've eaten at Capriccio (to die for) and the Garden Gfill (eh). The buffet is good. The swimming pools and drinks are wonderful. I've enjoyed myself and this has been a good vacation. More>

Guest Relations and Spa

We had a wonderful experience with Gladys in guest relations. We were trying to make a reservation at the Garden Grill for our anniversary. There were no openings but Gladys went above and beyond and called the restaurant manager and got us in! She was very friendly and helpful! We also had an excellent experience at the spa. Mary, Ramona and another woman whose name I cannot recall gave us the most enjoyable and relaxing experience. This resort is lucky to have such fabulous employees on their staff. More>

This was our first visit to the Punta Cana area of the DR we were a party of 6, the resort was beautiful well kept grounds, and it is a big resort, and because of the heat, we used the buses often. Oh and the construction was not an issue, we didn't hear a thing. We tipped as we do always when we take all inclusives, so our room was cleaned very day, fridge stalked beyond expectations, and they replaced our towels twice a day, even though I hung them up because I didn't need them replaced. The staff were very friendly, yes there is a language barrier, but we would try our best to communicate and they did as well, even teaching us some Spanish. We booked the only two Ala-cart's we wanted and at awesome times 6:30 and 6:45 did this the very next day before the welcome meeting had no issues (so not sure what other people are doing wrong). The Japanese teppanyaki show and the Grill. Both were good (for table service, and the same as any other resort we have been to). We don't like being tied to a supper reservation time while on vacation, and find the buffet fine for our needs. Now as for the buffet, the only complaint I have and not anyone else's fault but management) during our stay Sept 10 to 17th on Thursday there was a huge convention of what seemed like a local union of pastors. Some had t-shirts that noted different companies and some actually said Pastor's. They were rude, they butted in line at the buffet. We witnessed them acting like royalty with the staff. One lady pushed my mother out of the way in line to get food (really). I honestly felt like we the tourist was not welcome by them the convention folks (maybe management should have allocated a separate time in the buffet to accommodate this large group). Pretty sure that tourism is a huge commodity in the DR. (This was pretty much the only negative thing that put a downer on my trip) I even got bite very badly even using bug spray (not sure what I ate to attract the bugs because no one else in my group got bitten), I had to visit my Dr. on the day after my trip, because the bites caused my legs to swell and I had numerous blisters on my legs and ended up with a fever. Seems I'm allergic to bug bites yeah..!! however this didn't ruin my vacation..just a bunch of locals who thought they were above every one else there, sure was glad to seem them leave. We went to some shows, only because we had some virgin travelers. We don't do this anymore only because we have been going to these all inclusive' s for over 15 years now, they get a little old after awhile and we prefer the lobby entertainment, however this lobby is very humid, they need some big fans moving that air around. I've been to lots of resorts, 3 stars up to 5 stars, they are pretty much the same. If you want good service tip, tip or pay for a higher end resort and even then you don't always get any better. That's all I can say. These people work hard, a lot harder than most people I know in Canada. So stop complaining. And start enjoying your vacation for what it is. A week away from your life at home. Our guys went on a buggy excursion and they had a blast, they came back full of mud. We girls just hung by the pool and relaxed, we preferred the quiet pool to the large one next to the beach, we went to beach a couple of times, yes there was some seaweed, it is the ocean LOL. We found chairs each and every time in the shade after 10:00 am in both locations. When my husband and I travel, we have always had to reserve chairs at either the beach or the pool (not both) early. So the fact that we went later and found some, to me says there are plenty. Our room was not unlike any other resort we have been to. And we have been to quit a few. Our patio door was broken and hard to lock, but we managed to MacGyver it. Our door key didn't work the first day, but the bell hop had this fixed, however when they fixed it, they didn't activate the safe, so we had to take them to the lobby and have them do this but all was taken care of in hr or so, no biggie. We traveled with Air Canada Rouge (YUCK), connecting in Montreal. Very boring flights, very tight quarters and no TV, they offer I-pads you have to pay for and not much of a selection bring a book. And the return connection coming home was a cluster #$%@ at the Montreal airport. We had 50 mins to connect, 50 mins is not enough time, we barely made it. And the people who work in the Air port are not friendly at all, If you are in the customer service line of work. You should be able to assist people with a friendly attitude, no matter what and if you can't get another job please. To the Airport in Montreal, do everyone a favor and hire nice people. More>
