Our Opinion
A great resort. The resort is laid out well. There are many buildings spread over the area of the resort. Despite it's size, there are plenty of pools to accommodate the large amount of guests. Keep in mind that this resort does open it's doors up to the public during the weekends, making these days busier than most. This is also a place that is fitting for guests who are looking to stay within the resort grounds. There is very limited beach space and a dock is located very close by, making the beach almost un-swimmable, as there are several boats that dock close to the vicinity.
Overview
This magnificent luxury hotel is located on the East coast of the Dominican Republic and is part of the Grand Punta Cana complex. The resort is just a few minutes away from Punta Cana's international airport, ideal for couples and families. Here you can enjoy two hotels in one, and discover this new and exciting 24 hr All Inclusive Resort!
 
Location: Directly on the beach, 50 minute drive from Higuey and 20 minute drive from the airport.

Very good hotel

The place was awesome. All of the people who are working in this hotel are fun and great for us. Food was good. Rooms were clear every day. I remember a lot of guys who are working here. Photoshop squad, Ramon joseph the butler and Alejandrothe butler from beautiful beds on the beach. They give us a lot of fun and good energy. When the hotel had a problem with something, they fix it very fast. We bought swimming with dolphins and parasailing from 2 guys. Noel and Johny, they are very nice too. My opinion about the hotel is very positive. Best time.

Food Poisoning

Will not be going back to this resort nor would we recommend it. There was a group of 7 of us, mid to late twenty year olds, knowing full well for the price we paid that it wasn't going to be over the top amazing. Unfortunately the resort was far below what even our expectations were. The biggest con was that my boyfriend got food poisoning on the 3rd night, so he was only able to enjoy 3 days of his 7 day vacation. Food: The buffets are terrible, it was hard to find food any of us liked and we're by no means picky eaters. The Brazilian a-la-carte was good, so was the Mediterranean (although it's more Italian than anything). The Mexican restaurant was just okay. We were unable to try any other a-la-carte's as even if we went to book in the morning, they were all already reserved. The 24 hour burger shop wasn't actually 24 hours as we saw it closed multiple times. This place was likely also the culprit of the food poisoning as the food is pre-made and just sits out under heat lamps. It was closed on our last night there, and the buffet line was so long we ended up just buying chips and salsa to eat in our rooms. Drinks: I only drank beer as I couldn't find any other alcohol I liked. Anything slushy I found was so overwhelmingly sweet. The mojito tasted good, but they ladle what I guess is a syrup with mint leaves in it, but it's very clear the mint isn't fresh as it just ends up being a bunch of brown leave and stems in the drink. Rooms: Meh. They need to be updated. The grout in the shower had mould. The accent pillows smell musty. They didn't sweep/mop the floors when they cleaned them which lead to sand being in our bed every night. Staff: Only a few actually were great. Leon was amazing. The bar staff could have been much friendlier, and the towel service staff also. The biggest downfall was having vendors on the resort 2 of the nights trying to sell things. There were so many of them and it just becomes too pushy.All in all, it's not a resort we can recommend.

Just avoid it

I still have 2 days to stay in this hotel.But decide to write review now.Just have to spent my time and be busy.First - Guys AVOID this hotel.It's doesn't worth a penny that we pay for the trip.The service is terrible. Rooms need repair and disinfection.Food: in buffet there is big selection of the food. Don't think you would be hungry, but quality and taste is terrible. You can wait for coffee forever and finally they can bring you just milk or hot water. If you lucky you would get your coffee in 15-25 minutes. The personal don't speak English and very slow. I would say lazy. To dance they are first but to work........?,!Speciality restaurants just be careful. For example the lobster that advertised for $ 19.00 they try to sell you for $ 30. Great profit. And taste again doesn't worth money I pay it. They just know how to cook.And the food in this numerous restaurants almost same quality as in buffet.Bars: if you like bear you can get here a local one. All drinks half prepared already and after try couple in first day, I told myself to stop to use bars.Cheap local Rome and vodka.I advise you to bring liquor with you and be safe.Also I don't like how they washed glasses in the bar.Health is first.Room service : right now 5 pm and the maid came to the room for cleaning.She is doing a good job. No complaints.But because they don't have enough employers she is late to clean our room.It means that I have to use yesterday used towel after shower.They change beds ONLY if show them that it has to be done.Did you this in other hotels? And again nobody speak English.Beach: beach is not bad. But there is not enough lounge chair. So to reserve I have to get up 6 morning and go to the beach to reserve them.And stay there until my wife would get breakfast and change me.Same launch time. We have to go separate in in order to have our lounge chairs.Another problems on the beach is salespeople who want to sell you Dominicans cigars in a fake Cuban boxes. They tried to cell you trips.Some of them is great. But do your homework. Look for the available trips, read description and check prices. Same trips different tour operator sale for different prices and also different service. It's hard to suggest something, but just do your homework.Also the members of entertainment walking across the beac, again with no English. Try to touch your body and make some jokes. I can write a lot. But think it's more then enough that you would avoid this hotel from your plan.

Customer Service at its finest

Just returned from an absolutely amazing week here!!! I booked with a friend, as this trip was going to be without husband and kids , my friend and I were looking to be in separate rooms, which was perfect as this place did not penalize singles for travelling !! I had a few questions before our arrival so I decided to email the resort directly prior to!! This is where the ultimate customer experience started, I was given a reply via email from the amazing Mr. Wilkin Pache manager rooms division, he was so helpful, reassuring, courteous, professional, and very personable !! I would strongly recommend contacting him if you have any questions or concerns!! He made my stay absolutely unforgettable!! Graciously in the VIP section.Reading previous reviews of this place even up to our departure made us nervous as there were several bad ones!! But here is my honest perspective ! As someone who yes stayed at VIP, however went all over the resort !! Check in:We arrived via a mini bus from the airport , we were the only two on the bus, it was pouring rain , yes great start to the vacay!! We pulled up to what I now know to be the main lobby, we were about to get outAnd a man from resort told driver to take us to other lobby entrance , we were taken to a more modern lobby and greeted with nothing but pure grace!! English was not an issue at all and there were no rude people as I read in other replies! My room was ready and my friends was not!! However it was pouring and there are no golf carts here to take u to your room as they are not needed but your bellboy is actually pushing your luggage on a cart!! So he didn't want us to get wet , so we waited for the rain to subside a bit!! We arrived around 1:30 pm and thinking we got to our rooms around 3:30 however majority was due to rain and them not wanting us to get wet! This is our first impression and meeting with Carmelo and Claudio, absolutely amazing human beings, they truly made our trip, their attention to detail and superior customer service is outstanding!! So happy to have met both of you and got to spend so much time together!! Room:I was in the Adults only VIP my room was the king suite which over looked the pool in 7 block , second floor, room 7216 to be exact!! It was absolutely breathtaking! Four poster bed and all!! Jacuzzi tub , walk in shower , flat screen tv, double sinks !! Truly made me feel like a princess !! Thank you Mr. Wilkin Pache. The banner on my door , the champagne and fully stocked fridge were outstanding touches!! VIP experience:Assess to VIP lounge No limit or need to make reservations for A La carte restaurants, just show up !! with exception of Japanese as it's so popular you need to make reservations with VIP desk on this one!! And well worth it amazing !!Free unlimited Wifi in VIP lounge No charge safeTop shelf liquor Private pool areaPrivate beach -roped off area which was nice to get away from the pesky sales pushers - I will get to that later! Beautiful cabanas and sun beds, muskoka chairs etc!! VIP beach bar - fully attentive to your needs !! Nice seating area like your in your own paradise!! Beach:Sand is white and like corn starch, pure magic!! Seaweed Is cleaned every morning grounds are well taken care of!! A lot of people trying to sell you stuff which yes is annoying. Main buffet :Well diverse showing of food , great selection! No illness at all and I have sensitive system and I had fish , meat eggs , yogurt, cheese , fruit !! Down side is these men in safari hats trying to get u to listen to there sales pitch!! Yes it's annoying!! But I went entire week and managed to not have to sit down with them once !! They are just trying to make money!Main pool area:Never did swim in it however it looked clean and a very entertaining place to enjoy your day!! With pool bar and all!! At night they also have entertainment here a nice seating area to gather!! Grounds ;Lush and well cared for!! Casino:This place was great!! Slot machines and tables !!! I won 200 USD with a 5 dollar pay!! Great time!!Entertainment:Amazing, and Michael Jackson show best ever A la cart;We did the Brazilian twice which was absolutely amazing, just like Copacabana in Toronto!! Great experience and food wow!! Sooo good!! Bring on the meat!Japanese :Truly out did them selves on this!! The setting the music , there is some seating on floor if u desire! Enjoyed this twice , Tachky beef amazing!! So great we enjoyed this place twice as well!!Mediterranean :Found food quality good here as well nice atmosphere , good experience !Sum things up , I had a week in paradise from the treatment of the people and their exceptional customer service ! Yes there are people I observed who were unhappy and demanding , however that's there make up and nothing would make them happy!! I can't wait to return next time with my husband and kids, they made me a believer !! Nicholas thank you for being so attentive as well as all the other VIP staff Claudio thanks again for the surprise rose petal bubble bath , you made me feel like a princess !!
