Beautiful Resort - Pools Excellent

We travelled here in July 2017 a family of 5 - a 14 year old and 2 toddlers. The resort is less than a year old and so as you would expect everything is in a really good condition.We had 2 swim up rooms with jacuzzi bath on balcony. The rooms were v good in all areas, there was a slight smell of damp due to humidity but hardly noticable after the first day. The rooms were positioned brilliantly for all amentities and to be honest you are never too far of a walk from anywhere. The balcony was large and it was nice that it did not go immediately up to the pool edge. There was a small landscaped strip imbetween which made it a little bit safer for our toddlers. The pools are probably one of the best things about this resort. A pool river snaked around the main area and it was this which was right outside our room. From here you could swim unrestricted into all other pool areas. There are nice shelves and steps at different parts of the pools which make it very good for younger children but there are pools to suit everyone's needs - a bubble pool, a beautiful infinity pool even a boiling hot pool. The normal temperatures of all the pools was absolutely spot on. I must mention the adults only pool and bar area - this was absolutely amazing and possibly one of the nicest pool areas I have ever been in, having travelled extensively round the world.The beach area was so close, literally 15 metres from the edge of the furthest pool. The sand and beach were beautiful with lots of sunbeds available. Be aware that on this part of the Dominican the seas are quite rough and not the crystal calm waters you might imagine. This may or may not bother you. They are by no means too rough to prevent you going in but by the same token you couldn't really snorkel in it. The temperature of the sea was perfect. Some people moan about the seaweed on the beach but for me it really wasn't a problem.There is a nice large main buffet restaurant and about 4 or 5 other smaller themed restaurants as well as a beach bar and room service plus an ice cream parlour and a burger bar. The food is ok but not the most exquisite we've ever tasted in the world. You'll always find something you like in the buffet and there are a couple of fresh chef stations including an omelette station in the mornings. In the theme restaurants it depend which dish you choose, some are better than others. We liked the steakhouse and also sitting round the live cooking show habachi tables in the asian restaurant. I would point out that there are a lot of staff on this resort. The waiting on and restaurant staff are a bit hit and miss. Some are a lot better than others. I was surprised and the low evel of English that the majority of the staff were able to speak and understand, also there is a bit of a lethargic attitude of the staff in the Dominican in general so be prepared for not 5 class service, although some do try very hard.The all inclusive drinks are extremely good, beers nice and a fantastic selection of high quality cocktails - they will make you anything you want. Always fairly easy to get served and there are plenty of staff walking around the pool, bar and beach areas as well. If you tip then you'll get served even better. I have to say I did get a bit fed up of the underlying pressure to tip all of the time. I understand the staff there are probably very poorly paid but it does get annoying when you get lots of staff from room butlers, to beach drinks servers, to waiters and beell boys loitering for a tip. For instance we paid extra for an enhanced mini bar and the room attendant almost wouldn't leave every day when they'd filled up our mini bar until we gave a tip. I don't mind giving one at the end of the week but not every day for a service we'd already paid for.Just a note on the Club Preferred upgrade. We paid extra for this and granted while it wasn't a massive amount more we probably felt it wasn't quite worth it. If the club preferred was policed properly then we would have felt it was worth it. Basically it allowed you to eat in the air conditioned and nicer furnished area of the buffet restaurant at breakfast and lunch - which was good. But the staff weren't properly checking who could go in there, equally there was a seperate club preffered pool area which was fantastic, it had it's own lovely bar and you basically had this to yourself because not many people knew it was there, however again entry into this was not even remotely monitored so anyone who had not paid for the upgrade could easily walk in there. The upgraded mini bar simply wasn't worth it, the only real difference being a snickers bar and a small tin of pringles every now and then. The club preferred suite is very good though - a nicely laid out area in the middle of the resort where you can go and chill out with it's own bar and nibbles and dedicated staff.The selection of bars throughout the resort is pretty good - beach bar - a really nice lobby bar, bar around the theme restaurants, sports bar, entertainment bar etc.The evening entertainment was of a fairly good standard. A brilliant stage and viewing area, very big and impressive with a different theme show on every night - although they were all fairly similar basically slightly different versions of dancing and singing. The staff get people up to interact which is funny at times.There is plenty of activities going on around the pool and beach area which the staff are enthusiastic about and try to get people involved. My son and I enjoyed joining in the beach volleyball every day which was good fun.There ais a very nice gym and a few tennis courts up by the teen club facilities. The teen club is good in principle but no one used it while we were there the teens all seemed to do there own thing so it was a bit of a waste. The kids club look good but unfortunately our toddler just wouldn't take to it so I can't really comment but I know other children who really enjoyed it.You can't walk outside the resort so forget that. The wifi service is first class throughout the resort.One small thing is that in some areas there are very slippy and almost dangerous floor tiles when you have wet feet. Also, bizarrely a lot of the toilet seats were loose, think they maybe opted for a cheaper variety.All in all a very good resort which made everything easy, probably the service and food could have been better.Excellent personal service from one of the senior members of staff called Nicer Fernandez and we also found Wellington to be a very amenable and hard working member of the team.As a final note I would say that we flew with BA who were absolutely awful and I would think twice about booking with them. I am going to write a separate thread on this.

Girls Trip

The Now Onyx is a beautiful resort and would stay there again. All the staff was helpful and wonderful. Entertainers were awesome and friendly!! Food was good. The Bluewater Grill was the best. The only bad thing I could say was the beach.. I think we went at the wrong time of year.. There was a lot of seaweed, which made it hard to snorkel. Plus the locals who kind of bug you to buy what they were selling.. Tip: When on the beach be careful, there are locals who walk around on the beach with animals. They let you take pics of you holding the animal then ask for money.. Other than that.. BEST VACATION EVER!!!

Paradise!

On arrival we were greeted by incredibly friendly staff. Zorilla and Diana provided us with an extremely quick check in as we were part of the Preferred Club. As members we were entitled to our own Butler and we were given a tour of the resort. This added a personal touch to the experience. The resort was beautiful with many pools and a choice of different cuisine. We had members only access to the preferred pool, the lounge and the private area for breakfast and lunch. we had fantastic customer service from Pedro, Angel and Zorilla. We also had exceptional appreciation for Nicer Fernandez who made our stay even more enjoyable. They had a daily activity program which catered to both adults and children. Every night they put on a themed entertainment show. Their other facilities included an ice cream parlour, burger bar, cafe, sports bar, tennis courts, gym, spa and gift shops. There were several bars located around the resort, even one on the beach! The down sides were VIP Services who were located in the Lobby, where we wasted half a day of our holiday. Even though the wifi was available throughout the resort, there appeared to be a bad connection in certain areas. We noticed that some staff knew little English so there was a small language barrier. Apart from that our stay was unforgettable, can't wait to return!! I would highly recommend becoming a preferred club member during your stay as it makes it that little bit more special.

Destination wedding and vacay

So 8 months I visited this new resort and my fiancé and I decided to marry here. Carmen was our wedding planner and she was absolutely fantastic. Her attention to detail was superb. The wedding went off without a hitch and she always remained calm, even though there were some last minute changes. We got the divine wedding package and we opted for the preferred upgrade. Where we were given butlers. We had never had one before but were blessed to have Mercedes and Manuel. They were outstanding, so professional prompt and courteous. Anything we needed, they were there, especially necessary for last minute details for wedding. I have to say our wedding couldn't have gone any better. We even had a private dinner on the beach, which was so romantic and the food was excellent. We think it's the best lobster we've ever had. Carmen was at our disposable before and even after the wedding. I highly recommend her. The photography of our wedding was amazing. The quality and angles were so professional. We have some excellent shots of our most beautiful moments. The resort customer service was excellent, the people in the dr are so happy and genuine. Also the food was amazing. Our favorite restaurants were kibbeh and croquette. Also the weather was perfect, it wasn't until the day we were leaving that it rained.

Memorable stay :)

From the moment we entered through the glass doors, impeccable service was what we got from the employees. The restaurants were fantastic, we got the chance to eat at Blue Water Grill and Spice and both were excellent. Without a doubt, the hype of our stay was the service we received from the guys at the Preferred Club Bar located at the pool. Victoriano, Julio, Florencio, Alejandro, Kerri, and David offered an excellent service. But let me not forget about Gilbert and Mariano. Time with these guys was always accompanied by laughter, stories, singing, but most of all, memories that we will forever cherish. For all of you guys, our Dominican Parceros, at the Preferred Pool Bar, keep up the excellent job that all of you showed us during our short stay at Now Onyx Punta Cana!
