We sadly only spent 4 days here. I could have sold the farm and moved here! The staff was so kind and friendly, the hotel is immaculate, the food is great, the drinks are good. The beach was great and the view was better. Our room was beautiful and well appointed. We got upgraded to the adult side, thank goodness! It was wonderful! I would go again in a heart beat. The only negative I have to say is the beds are on the firm to ultra firm side.

We spent two weeks at this resort with our 21 and 18 year old. It was absolutely amazing!!! The hotel is spotless, staff are continually cleaning and tending to the gardens and surroundings. On arrival we were greeted with a drink and a wonderful welcome from the reception team. The rooms are stunning - huge bed in our room and 2 large beds in the room for our kids. The room fridges are stocked with water, Pepsi, Sprite, whisky, vodka miniatures and Presidente beer (the best beer in the world!!) The bathrooms are spacious and have a jacuzzi bath and large shower. Again totally spotless. We ate in the buffet - the food was very good with a different theme every night, mexican, dominican, american, asian etc. the desserts were awesome chocolate fountain, fruit, cakes and ice cream. Breakfasts were equally as great sooooo much choice!!! The buffet staff were fantastic!!! In particular Juan Carlos (Teddy Bear) and Willian - they honestly couldn't do enough for us!! The staff at the bar near the buffet make amazing cocktails - in particular Ramon - he completely made our evenings - making us laugh and creating some awesome cocktails - he truly went over and above to make sure we were enjoying our holiday. The pool was lovely and the staff in the swim up bar were always happy and dancing! They constantly came round the sunbeds to see if we wanted drinks! The entertainment team were brilliant too - they tried several times to get us involved but we were just happy to chill and watch others - they involved everyone in the fun! We ate at the French Gormet restaurant - the food was lovely and the staff great too! Our hotel was the adults only section which made a huge difference, although we did venture to the other hotel to see the entertainment. The casino was also good fun! We used the jetskis which were good if not a little battered. The only downsides we can mention are the ocean which isn't dirty just not clear like other parts of DR - so you can't snorkel there at all. (Although this obviously is out of the control of the hotel. The only other downside (again was not really anything to do with the hotel or staff themselves) was the Thomson rep Jesus. He did little to enhance the reputation of Thomson, he was late for our first meeting and then spent the entire time answering his phone. This put us off purchasing any excursions or contacting him for anything - Thomson really need to sort that out asap!!!
Overall an amazing holiday and would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for total peace and relaxation. You will be treated like a VIP and made to feel truly welcome.

Finally have come around to write about my experience.Travelled back in April for two weeks and still tell many friends of the good times we had. Met a lot of great people and made some good friends as well.
The surroundings are just gorgeous. Very well maintained and everyone is working 24 hours. Don't know how they can work so hard and still find the time to smile at all times. The pool area was never overcrowded and you never had to wait to get a drink. Food was also excellent. Mostly ate at the buffet or the grill. Never disappointed. Tried the Italian restaurant which I didn't like at all. Pizza was actually better at the buffet. I really enjoyed the variety of food. They would mix it up every day so there was always something new to try. Couldn't believe that all the top shelf drinks were included. This truly amazed me.
Didn't have any isdues with the room. Was very spacious and well layed out. They would clean the rooms twice a day, which is beyond what I expected. Fridge was replenished daily at no cost.
I am really getting tired of the reviews where complaints are being made about the beach. If you would read past reviews, it was clearly explained that the water isn't the best. I personally enjoyed the beach by taking walks or laying on one of the loungers. Didn't go in the water myself but that is what the pool is for.
So for $3,800 for two people all inclusive with flight it is hard to even criticize anything at all. Some folks can be anal if one thing doesn't go there way. I am very picky myself but also know when and where to pick my battles. So if you feel that the one time your fridge didn't get filled or the time you were asked not to play frisbee in the pool upset you and use that to criticize everything that was so much more worth while than get a life. This is a great resort with great employees and a very dedicated management team.
Make sure to tip and don't be cheap just because you think that your vacation is paid for. These people deserve more than the type of service we receive back home.
Thank you for a great vacation and beautiful memories.

My girlfriend and I went for our 4 year Anni. I'm 25 she's 23. Great time for couples. Enough space and activities where you can be social or stay to yourselves. For couple I definitely recommend stay on the adult side of the resort. It rain while we were there for 2 our 5 days. However there is rain is that nice summer rain that last all of 10 mins then back to blue sky's. Its actually great while you're in the pool. The Bar was great. Brand recognizable alcohol, definitely not bottom self. Disaronno and Rum Pina Coladas were my girl's go to, while I sipped on Bombay Sapphire and Pineapple juice. I recommend paying the $80 per person for the La Catalina half-day snorkel trip. white sand, crystal clear vivid blue water, All the beer and Mamajuana you want. You Must at least taste Mamajuana while in DR.
Oh and I lost my wallet on the way home...my own error, probably at the airport. But when I call the hotel, with a little patience they were very helpful, and actually seemed concerned. I think deep down, I just wanted a reason to come back :)
