great stay!

great food in all the restaurants. great dancers for entertainment at night. staff very willing to serve your every need.beach beautiful, clean, sandy, clear water. Different pools for different levels of noise- middle pool doesn't have a bar so much quieter. Would recommend.

Brilliant Holiday

We travelled from the Uk for 2 weeks. Great hotel, staff are all lovely and friendly. The resort is clean and close to the beach. The lively pool is "lively" at times good fun though. There are quieter pools you can access. The only thing that started to irritate is by about 4pm there was a game of sliding people down the tables in the pool, only a matter of time before someone is seriously hurt!! Also not a fan of smoking in the pool. Beds are plentiful and there are shaded areas to avoid the heat at times if need be!!! Animation team do a great job to get people involved. Some of the games are adult themed so beware if getting involved especially miss Bikini!!!!! Entertainment at night was ok, pool party and beach party were good. We had no problem with food great variety Thumbs up for the indian and spanish restaurant! There is a small gym with towels and water available. Highly recommend the trip to Saona island its beautiful, the sea being the caribbean side is beautiful, white sand and crystal clear. We also did outback safari which was good fun. The beach is nice plenty of beds available only thing lacking is a bar! Plenty of bars around the resort, the sports bar has snacks in 24hrs. Have to say the shop is very overpriced. There is an ATM just at the entrance to the resort. The room we had was great, there are 4 optics with spirits which are refilled every 2 days. Fridge with beer coke 7up etc.. Coffee machine with a couple of sachet of coffee available. Pool towels available and can be changed as often as you need. Recommend the resort we will definitely be back!

Great hotel

Rooms are really nice clean modern and comfortable. The balcony’s all have really nice views.There’s a selection of restaurants, buffet, Italian and Asian. The food is fine in all of them. The staff are really friendly and give a great service. They also perform at breakfast, singing with drums while you eat.The pool areas lovely but I spent time down at the beach which is accessed by walking passed the pool, straight onto the beach where there are sun loungers for your use.Beach towels are provided by using your towel card.There’s also a night club on sight, which I haven’t got round to using but you can’t hear it in the rooms, it didn’t disturb my rest. They also have nightly entertainment which is really good.

plenty of bartenders

listening to some other reviews,i was a little worried about room location. had a garden view on second floor right close to 24 hour sports bar. shut the doors and didnt hear a thing. beds comfortable pillows small but plenty of them, room clean, some misquitoes on balcony after dark but not too bad with some insect spray. could have been better informed as to shows and events but found later they were posted in elevators which i only used on arrival and departure with my luggage. traveled with a group of 15 and everyone seemed to enjoy the resort. beach was a little crowded with chairs but overall i would go again

Beautiful Beach - you can stroll for miles

Beautiful resort. We were worried about it being too busy as it is larger than any resort we've been to. It was perfect. We never had to wait for a chair on the beach or by one of their many pools. The main buffet always had a good variety of tastey food. The specialty restaurants didn't need reservations, but never a long wait , if any wait at all. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Our room was 'gardenview' , not much to look out at but we were centered in the resort so everything was just a few steps away from our room. We booked through Signature Sunwing and flew out of Hamilton, ON, which is a nice smaller airport
