Just back from a weeks stay, Jan.26-Feb2nd
This was our second time back, last time 2014
We enjoyed this resort again, the ala cartes are very good meals and service
Make your reservations a week before you leave by email or you will have a difficult time once you are there
The grounds are prestine the staff always smiling and very helpful
rooms are nice power was out frequently but for only short periods
No water in entire complex one morning for about 2 hours
The pool is beautiful but waiters and waitresses are almost non existent to get a drink
was not like this 2 years ago, I guess the pinnaro group and management are cutting corners to save money, not a good idea if they want to call themselves a 5 star
so if you want a drink around pool area be prepared to get it yourself by wading to swim up bar or waiking to whirlpool bar
The bar staff are overworked trying to keep up
The lobby bar, same thing understaffed especially in evening,
we went a couple times in evening to get a coffee after dinner, after waiting 20 mins we left with no service, again another example of them cutting corners with staff
Even with that said the employees are always smiling there to help but are stretched too thin bad management
All in all nice resort
We have seen better resorts

Overall, the resort is nice and clean and rooms are spacious and well kept. Can not say the same about the beach and sea. The service in the buffet leaves a lot to be deserved! We always had to ask more than twice to get drinks or even whater. The bars are closed after 11 PM which is the most ridiculous thing for the all-inclusive resort! The management took away coffe machines from the lobby and buffet not explaining anything and after that we could get coffee only from the bar or buffet and it tasted very bad! Never seen so many flies in the buffet even though it does not have outside areas at all. The resort seems to be short of towels because we never had a full set of them for the entire stay. The gym could not be used because it's air conditioner was not working. We are not coming back there and won't recommend this resort to our friends.
Lower your expectations and you'll be OK... I guess

As the title implies, this is by no standard a "Luxury" resort. It is a good regular resort, nothing more. Real Luxury resorts do not require you to use beach towel tag and can serve you quality drinks promptly.
Staff is friendly (as much as dominicans can be) but they all struggle with English and it can be challenging communicating sometimes. Getting a drink at the lobby bar is an experience on his own as they always run back and forth to get a clean glass or a piece of lime. They never have what they need handy. Alcool quality is ok, selection not so great but they just don't know how to mix a drink and to get organized. Not staff fault, just bad management.
Food is average by Dominican standard but as many other reviewers mentioned, there was a lot of sick people on the resort (myself included).
The resort is small, very clean and well maintain. You can't really get a bad room as everything is close and all rooms are the same. It is in the middle of nowhere. A cab ride to La Romana is about 30 minutes and 30$ USD and double that for Santo Domingo
Beach is nice with a lot of palm trees and you get to see beautiful sunsets in La Romana. As many reviewers... sand bugs are starving there and will eat you alive.
Average people age is 55+ and I wish I knew that before booking. At 11h00 everything shuts down and if you want a drink after that you need to go to the resort next door and drink cheap, local, alcool served is a plastic cup!
Overall I am disappointed but it is partially my fault. At 40yo I guess I am still too young for resorts like that! I paid the same thing as a trip to Riviera Maya in a nice resort but I enjoyed is way less. I guess I will start to rely a bit less on TA ratings and make wiser travel decisions from now on.

My 3rd trip to this little slice of heaven
From the moment you arrive to the minute you leave you are treated like royalty
The room is spacious with a canopy bed sitting area separate bathroom with a jetted tub and a window looking from the tub to the bedroom Mini fridge was stocked daily with chips beer etc
Outstanding job done by the cleaning staff always surprising me with towel art and flower petals Did I forget Freddie my butler ....booked all my a la carte restaurant not to forget my spa treatments. Arrived with a pillow choice and a spare blanket even an umbrella for the 1 day it rained
Travelling solo can be a bit daunting however by my 3 rd day the animation team became my new friends including me in activities and making new friends
Thanks to Manuel who taught me to dance and speak a few words of Spanish
The beach is beautiful and the lagoon area to the left of the hotel is crystal clear and great for swimming . No need to reserve chairs as they are plentiful on the beach and around the pools. I found the bar service excellent Ariel and Jazmin even knew my drink!
