Fairly disappointed
BRENDAN M.
Mar 08 2018
Had a 7 day stay, not once was I able to find a chair to relax on on the beach, not once. Everything is already reserved by towels that belong to people that aren’t around for hours. I could not take 3 steps in any direction without someone coming up to me trying to haggle me into buying something. One night after going for a walk thruought the resort I got mixed up in directions, asked for assistance and got laughed at by a group of employees when all I needed was a simple point in “that direction.” I will not be returning nor will I be reccomending.

Rooms and Japanese restaurant
PATRICK B.
Mar 01 2018
The rooms were clean and spacious our only complaint was very hard pillows so bring your own if you prefer soft flat pillows they do not provide another choice. All the food was good to wonderful except the Japanese restaurant was less than desirable and felt a little ill after. The food was overcooked.

The restaurants are "full" even upon check-in. When walking by there are only a few tables-never "full". I was unaware I needed to get reservations before getting to the resort. I wish I would have had better orientation to the facilities. Overall, the hotel staff made great efforts to give us a great time...and we did.

Good Fun Trip for a week

I liked the hotel in general. The staff were very courteous and friendly. The day entertainment programs were good. The biggest letdowns, based on our stay in other resorts, was the quality of food and the nightly entertainment programs. They can definitely do a lot to improve on these 2 counts.

Great vacation

Feb 25 2018
This is great resort. The staff was fun and very friendly. The food was about like you would expect at an all inclusive. It was good but not great. Although there was a very wide selection of foods in the buffets. The rooms and the resort was very clean and appeared to be pretty well maintained but there were some areas the looked old and worn. With that said, they were doing repairs and updates when we were there. The beach was huge and clean. The pools were nice but they were much deeper than I have ever seen at a resort. The pools had an area where you walk in but quickly went from pretty shallow to nearly 6 ft deep. The the majority of the pool is an average of 5 ft deep. Overall was a great vacation and would definitely go back.

Gorgeous Grounds, Rooms getting tired looking
ALICE P.
Feb 01 2018
Do not accept rooms ending in 87 thru 96. They face the inner courtyard, which is a nice view, but there is absolutely no air movement. Couldn't sit outside in the evening at all. Also, thou rooms are No Smoking, my room smelled like cigarettes. There were butts left in the plant (3rd floor) and never picked up by housecleaning. They must run out of King Sheets, so put queen size on. You feet, if your are over 5'8", are laying on the actual mattress. We ripped the sheets off the bed, and she did put on the correct size on the next day. Though you will not go hungry, my family thought the buffet, especially at breakfast, was so so. The beach and grounds were kept beautiful. My favorite was the House Band that played nightly at the Star Band area. This is between the Punta Cana building and the buffet. They were awesome. Nightly, a nice size crowd would come and we danced to Latin music. They only play till 10:45 pm, so don't miss it.

The food verity and quality was very poor. I ended up getting very sick on our 2nd day from food poisoning. It lasted 2 days and never felt right for the rest of the trip. Our entire group of 8 were disappointed with the food.

Really had a good time. We had stayed there before. Had an ocean view. Alittle deceiving. If u sat down on the balcony it was a ocean view. If u stood up, you had a top of a restaurant and trash container view. But all in all a beautiful resort

Hi, Apple Vacation team, I complained three times about my room air condition. Was so noisy,that was NOT possible to sleep,hotel management did nothing (one time I spoke front desk,two times I spoke to hotel manager name Johnly with no result. Late last our stay in this hotel night front desk called as to offer another room. We refused to take it, because it was too late for us.Room maid service was terrible too.Three days was good, but after next day only haf (no beds), next day nothing at all??!!! Had to complain room service manager too. Definitely, I would NOT recommend this hotel to my friends and will post my review on trip adviser and hotels Website. It was not first trip to Punta Cana and my wife and me totally dissatisfied of our vacations. Sincerely, Arturas Dudonis.

Great resort. Love the beach.

Very enjoyable trip. The rooms are all the same and our room was nice. Really liked the ceiling fan. The resort was clean. Could always find something good to eat. The weather was cooler and it was quite windy so sitting by the ocean was tough. I've been to DR in December before and the weather was perfect so this was most likely the exception, not the rule. The huts on the beach we're really nice. Two volleyball courts were fun. Would return for the right price. Have fun.

Not worth the money
Kimberly E,
Wed Nov 07 01:07:11 EST 2018
In my honest opinion, this trip is not worth the money I spent. The room smells of mildew, the food was horrible and unless you paid more money there was nothing to do. No one understood a word of English so we couldn't even communicate. The resort takes you to one "shopping" area that has 2 shops and one tourist shop. To go to any other place you had to take a cab and go on your own. Then of course they sales pitch you for the " loyalty program" that costs $10,000 USD. I will NEVER come back here again.

Christmas 2017

I can't believe I did not add a review here for this resort. We were here for Christmas 2017. We would love to be there this Christmas too, however, we're trying Christmas vacation in the Riviera Maya this year. We will definitely be back though. Staff is amazing and social with adults and children alike. They had a great Christmas schedule leading up to Christmas and on Christmas day, including a nice Christmas dinner you had to make reservations for. Something for everyone. The staff's schedule around the pool and on the beach on a daily basis is fun and interactive. There's a pool on the other side you can go to if you don't want to be around all the action. Our room was centrally located so a walk to the main buffet and beach/pool was never an issue. Having food by the pool/beach was nice/convenient because that's where we were pretty much all day every day. There was an issue with finding pool or beach loungers everyday. Some people go out before the light of day to put their stuff down on chairs and sometimes you don't see them all day. It's crazy. Most are respectful to others in that regard though. We did do two excursions while we were there, plus the kids did parasailing. We saw Hoyo Azul and a Buggy adventure. Booked at the hotel. All were great. Food was good, no complaints. My son enjoyed kids club mostly for just the archery classes. The shows at night were always good. We had two rooms, adjoining, which they were able to accommodate. Will definitely stay here again.

Good rating as far as food, accommodations, pool etc. EXCEPT for the entertainment which was slim to none.

The customer service is sorely lacking. The on-boarding process of what is available, the hotel map and even shuttle to shopping plaza was "non-existent"! I found out on my own by asking and speaking with guests. The staff are not resourceful. They need better training in both Hospitality and some conversational English. We immediately requested a room change from ground floor to one level up due to glass sliding door lock was jimmied and broken and the pad lock workaround was a joke. The beach is beautiful. The weather divine. I would come again, but would upgrade or try another hotel.

Our great vacation

Nice hotel with beautiful gardens and beach. The food was good but almost the same every day. The best thing was the staff and animation team (Star friends). Always friendly, smiling and hard working. This was our first time in the Dominican Republic and we hope it's not the last one. Special thanks to Samantha. Highly recommended. She is an excellent yoga instructor and runner :)
