Our OpinionIt should be noted that the Golden Bear Lodge and Spa is NOT an all-inclusive resort. This is a great resort though for groups and those who are wanting to venture away from the usual resort strip. Each room is spacious and fully equipped with a kitchen and amenities. A great golf course nearby. There is a great Be advised that you will need a car or an alternative source of transportation when you are staying here. It is further away from the main resort strip and nowhere near a beach.
I'll start with the good thing I appreciated the most about this hotel: for the price we payed, the apartment I stayed in (two bedrooms with a living room and a kitchen) is huge. Things I didn't like: - When you arrive, the young man at the check in is very kind and welcoming, but once you are in your room, if you have any issues you won't receive any help and your issue won't be fixed. We had to call twice because there was no hot water (For me, hot water is very important), after they finally sent a guy to fix it... Whatever he did, didn't work so we ended up just accepting the fact. - The rooms are dusty and we found many insects (cockroaches and spiders)
I was in Alsol Luxury for a weekend and the apt I was given was very spacious, very clean and had a wonderful view from the balcony. The pools were very nice kept and the staff were very welcoming. It was a great experience and I will defenitly do it again.
I was in this unit from Nov 30th 2015 until Jan 6th 2016. Since day number one we had many issues..:1- Water coming from the sealing continuously and when we call Ross Voermans from classical realty she never came in the total of days to resolve the situation (she just came the day we were leaving the unit). She was just giving excuses and never came in.2-master Bathroom shower was clotted and we send multiple emails and never resolve the situation.3- the first 2-3 weeks we did not had hot water and even that people went to fix it, it took 2-3 weeks to resolve situation,.4- Jacuzzi pump was not working.5- Cleaning lady did a terrible job every week and we had to finish her lousy cleaning every week.6- The best when I started asking about Ross to all the employees from the Golden Bear Lodge, all of them coincide that she is a terrible person to be dealing with and that she never listen to the customer complaints. Even the people who work for her (cleaning and maintenance personnel) were on the same page on how terrible and liar she is with costumer as she did not give you all the actual pictures of the property and apt is on lousy conditions.If you make the mistake to rent with her I am sorry for you as she is very unprofessional, liar and nonpersonable.
If you are looking for a place to rent an apartment in Punta Cana this is a good option. This complex is located inside of the Cap Cana Group with ease access to the Punta Espada Golf camp. At the Marina you have some eating options and stores. Api Beach and Juanillo are your closest venues for bars and beaches to relax and have a chill time.
Amazing scenery here, maybe because it's the only beautiful place I've been to nature-wise. I came with a group of students for one week and we enjoyed our stay overall. We were out most of the daytime on weekdays (10am-5pm) for studies but we were there during the nights and early mornings, which were beautiful standalone. There wasn't much to do in regards to actual activities nearby, or even human life. The nearest village was a walk in the pitch dark through some forests. PROS-Beautiful scenery-Quiet, great for couples I'd imagine-Great for golf (huge course on site)-Suites are amazing, spacious, cleanCONS-Not much to do in the area-Empty -No WiFi, only wired slow internet with very short cords (bring your own cord if you choose this place)-Staff didn't speak or understand English well-Someone there wasn't trustworthy. I put a "Do not enter/disturb" sign on my door because I don't want room service. A few hours later I return and my room was entered, my clothes were moved around (but not folded, strangely), my bag had been opened (I put a small piece of tape on the far end that barely showed, in case someone opened my bag after I left). There was nothing valuable in the room but someone in "room service" or management had been to my room and through my possessions (especially the pants pockets). The other students reported the same issue. This alone is a sufficient reason for me to never return to this resort. Trust is #1. Other than that...great experience, but there are definitely better options around.
