    Okay hotel

    Pros Friendly staff( for the most part) comfortable bed and pillows Very quite place the beach was very clean Cons Food was awful If you call for an Uber they don't let it come in to the resort property ( be ready to walk) Taxis from the resort charge triple the amount The guy who seems to be the manager of the buffet and bars was very rude Security guards would be drinking and getting drunk during their shifts Can't even enjoy the beach because vendors won't leave you alone Less then 24 hours in the resort and staff putting pressure on you to buy timeshare ( the guy who was helping us got mad because we said we were not interesting) The resort is not 4 or 5 stars. I would say 3. Conclusion: it is an average place to stay if you are looking for a quite area. They need to work on their customer service and be more professional ( you can tell people only want to rip you off) . But I need to be honest bartenders Maria, Lorelai, other staff like Alfredo, Pedro, a new guy at the buffet I think his name was Derek and all the young waitresses did a great job. Also housekeeping very friendly. And at the beach Felix was very helpful. And to be honest, I don't know if I would go back to this place.

    Family Vacation

    Second time being at this resort and loved it again! The group I was traveling with found the rooms were tired and the 3 couples had to change rooms due to issues unfortunately but the staff was great and moved them. Because it was low season only one restaurant was open each night. This was unfortunate for the people who paid extra for the upgrade because it didn't get them anything extra. Last time I went in high season and it was a very different experience. Food was always great..low season had less options. Restaurant staff were outstanding and went above and beyond for us! Entertainment staff work so hard and were extremely friendly! Beach is absolutely beautiful and so clean. Pools are great and lots of seating was always available. Shows at night were good but with low season it wasn't a great variety of shows but the ones they had were good. Disco was cancelled some nights because there was hardly any people there. Locals come in on weekends...we had no issues but other guests were not happy. Be careful with the hotel taxi drivers. One of the men told us $80 to Cabarete and back. When we got back to the hotel he increased the price on us and we had to pay the extra.

    Friendly staff

    We were a group of 4 and for our first all included trip we loved it. The staff was impeccable and the people in the animation team really did their best to entertain a bunch of people who were not participating (not talking about us though). The rooms were super clean and we always had bottled water near. The food was much better than we expected. We didn't know that the beach was public so we ended up going only once because we were always harassed. Overall we left super happy!
