Too bad the beach is so great, the hotel does not compare

The BEDs are bad, the facility is old, and the food was monotonous. Took till day 7 to get bacon at breakfast. But the Animation and service staff were so great. The resort was really dead and we had them all to ourselves, but they were so great. The language barrier was tough but there always seemed to be someone that could interpret the conversation. If not for the great staff and BEAUTIFUL beach, we would have been very mad. There are a lot of resorts along this strip of beach so I'm sure you could find one to say at that was more up to date. They are trying to renovate so higher end suites but not quick enough.

Best week

This was one of the best vacations I've ever been on. I brought my 3 girls and wow we were welcomed with open arms and made to feel like we were at home.....the food wasn't the greatest but we made do and enjoyed what food we liked....the animation team was amazing with my girls and I. I can't thank you enough for making us feel like we were at home. See ya all next year.Christie, Emma, Jordyn and Haylie

worst place ever. I'm not a picky traveller but basics are needed. This is not a 3 star hotel. No air conditioning,so humid in rooms that the floors are always wet. My girl fell 3 times.moldy smell all over the site .Loss of electricity they have there own power supply,I've seen in other comments that the electricity went out once due to a problem but it seems to be frequent. No electricity =no water in washrooms. when electricity comes back the toilettes in public restrooms over flow including everything in it watch where you put your feet.Food not a lot of choices but not to bad if you're not a picky eater. Yes birds eat in the buffet but this often happens in other places also. Watch out for little flies in food the salads are covered with them.The only good comment about this place is the staff. If the owners took time to really fix this hotel could become a 3 star but I've been told that this is frequent in the DR owners buy cheap and don't fix. I had a 1 week in this hotel and after 48hrs asked to change hotel.The comments you read about this hotel are really not exaggerated. You can do like I did and give it a try but at your own risk.

This place has the most amazing staff and service that make you feel like family! They are always up to play games, dance and entertain! I will be back to this resort!! Thank you to all the staff that made this vacation unforgettable... your all my family xoxoxo

The worst place to have visited

First, when me and my wife arrived we got a room full of a mold with a dirty toilet. We asked for a change of rooms and we got a less moldy room with an occasional hot water, the food was terrible, the pool had a opaque color (not clear as a pool should be) on btw when we woke up the next day we found a pile of garbage that was just there for half a day, seriously this does not respresent in the least a dominican republic vacationing spot, its just a dump
