So this is our first Caribbean vacation, we were there from OCT13 to OCT20. This was an AirCanada vacation. We arrived in the evening, got checked-in pretty fast, the room had 2 double beds put together, we asked to change the room to 1 king bed, they were pretty helpful and changed our room the next day.The food at the buffet was pretty good (Not a lot of good options at lunch though), the a la carte restaurants were pretty good too (the service at the oriental restaurant was not good, and we were seated beside a table of 8 who were drunk, rude and loud and ruining everybody`s dinner).Most of the buffet and the a la carte restaurants were pretty good, Raphael at the breakfast & lunch buffet is the greatest and funniest !Regarding the bars, you got the beach bar in the morning with the greatest bar man ever "Pablo", always serving you with a great friendly smile!Unfortunately the bar men at the pool and near the theatre in the evening are not even close to Pablo, not the greatest service at all.When it comes to the animation team, its the greatest ! They are all funny, engaging and they make sure they do their best to get you entertained.Beach was pretty good, but at the 4th night the water got high and reached all the way to the last row, it was all good the next day though. The water is not very clean, but we used to walk on the beach for about 10 mins where the water gets cleaner for some reason.Overall experience was pretty great for the money we paid 1700 CAD for 2 people. We enjoyed most of our time, mostly because of the great staff.

Besides my wife, the staff and the food is tied for the next best thing about this vacation. Especially Santiago Santios from CircleOne. He would go or do whatever whatever it took to keep us happy. Big up to the chef for preparing a delicious meal everyday all day. I’m a picky eater but everything I ate was so good. The waiting staff was so friendly Rafael,Nilson and Oscar. The bartenders like Santo Enrigue, Romane Joy and Franklin Torress kept us vacation mood all day and night with tasty refreshments. Elanny the photographer did a great job of doing our photoshoot on my birthday. The pictures were above excellent.The entertainment crew were off the chain. They were all good. Yandra was the one who took me out of my shell and activate me in vacation mood so thank you very much. She is such a wonderful person. Another special mention is Veronica. I call her the DR Energizer Bunny. It doesn’t look like she ever takes a break. She works really hard to make sure we all have the best vacation ever. And for sure my wife and I both said this is our best vacation to date. But I also have to big up my brothers from another mother on from the entertainment crew like Anthony, Jorge and Coca Cola” Mr. I’m so Macho. Overall my wife and I had a great time. But there are a few things that we didn’t like. Probably the thing we dislike the most is that the pool close at 6pm. The sun don’t set until close to 8pm. Next thing is that beer was placed in the mini fridge in our rooms but if you drink it you had to pay extra for it. when you can just go to the bar and get the same beer. After dark if you go for a walk with your spouse security follows you like you’re about to steal something. Another thing is that you can’t get a clean beach towel unless you exchange it for the dirt one. There is a lot of rules that doesn’t make sense especailly it’s a adult resort. I felt like we were being treated like children with these silly rules. If the silly gets eliminated this hotel would be the prefect vacation spot.
I wanted to do a getaway for my birthday with some friends and I was unsure about this place because it seemed like a resort for couples and honeymooners. Regardless, I still had a great time. The beach is so close and there's a bar on the beach. Angello was a great bartender. He hooked it up and was easy to talk to. If you aren't up for the beach they had three other pools which were kept really clean, one of which had a swim up bar. The staff there are super nice and helpful. The guys in the reception area, Jonny, Jonathan and Junior, recommended fun places to go inside and outside the resort. There's a club right next to the resort that is like a three minute walk which was really convenient. There's another club that's a short cab ride away but when I went it did get pretty crowded and kind of grimy. What I really liked about the resort was that it was really close to the city. Wish I stayed long enough to take a day to just explore the city outside the resort. We did a lot of the excursions to keep ourselves occupied and highly recommend them. It's a great way to meet the locals and see some of the culture. I got to meet and talk with some really cool and interesting people.There's really nothing bad about the resort. I think the only bad thing was that the buffet would close during certain hours and the snack bar wouldn't have any food so you just kind of have to wait. But you can just drink in the meantime. Overall, I thought this place was nice.
