I can't wait to come back again this October, this time bringing some friends and the in-laws... Honestly, I can't say enough about this resort... It's on the small side which I love, less walking is not always a bad thing... Barb and Melanie are amazing as is, Newton, Antonio, Yunior and Yoselin.. Amazing people! This place is like our home away from home and you could not ask for a more beautiful beach... The food at the VIP restaurant is top notch! Kudos to their great chefs... If you are looking for a wild and crazy resort, then look elsewhere.. If you are looking for pure beauty, kind people and relaxation, this is this place... You will also meet so many wonderful people and make many new friends... We just love this place!!
Talk about having your own boutique quiet spot! The staff (Carlos, Nikki, et al) were really a great help and the service was always top notch at this relatively small hotel. Probably the best of all was the immaculate renovated room and grounds. Someone said there was no WiFi in the rooms but that is incorrect. You have your own restaurant, swim up bar, and uncrowded beach as well.The Cayena Beach Hotel (47 rooms) is right next to the Arena Blanca (400+ rooms) where you can visit and then leave - far too crowded, especially the beach. Also, the only WiFi at the the Arena Blanca is in the lobby.The food runs from good to very good but not great. None of the desserts seem to have enough sugar. The house wine, both red and white, that is served at all the restaurants is terrible!But this is Punta Cana. Very international and multi-lingual. We have visited here before as well as many other islands in the Caribbean and nothing is ever perfect. This is a wonderful hotel and beach area with all kinds of things to do and not do at the hotel(s). Give it a try for a great vacation.
Beach, pool, quiet resort. Go next door for action. Overall staff very pleasant, Carlos was great, Nikki was wonderful and many others, however, convenience store and vip eating restaurant next to pool (Jocelyn-waitress) staff could use some customer service skills. Giving more resort information at check in would be helpful also. Some of the staff here play favorites to those that visit on a regular basis (setting up and blocking off beach loungers for them, etc...) and newcomers are left to fend for selves. So other than lack of customer service, relaxing and great vacay. Also rooms are very outdated and only 7 of the 47 rooms look like pic on website. Spent 1 day getting settled in after changing rooms. Thanks Nikki for assistance.
The staff at this resort are the friendliest people I have ever met. From a customer service perspective, this resort is an A+! However, the rooms have no WiFi coverage at all. There is WiFi in the common areas but in this day and age, WiFi in the guest rooms is a must - especially when you are traveling out of the country and have no cell phone service. The food at the resort was just okay - the food was bland and the desserts were not very good. However, the omelette station for breakfast was amazing and Oscar was fabulous. The rooms are a bit dated and the upholstery on some of our furniture was stained. The location of the hotel, in respect to the water, you cannot beat. The resort is right on the sandiest blue beach I have ever seen. There is plenty of lounge seating right in front of the water and the grounds are well kept. The pool area is also nice with a swim up bar but be aware there is no hot tub anywhere at the resort. There is a small, jetted pool that has the appearance of a hot tub but the water is not heated. I, personally, would have loved a hot tub especially on the breezy evenings when the sun started to go down.
We loved it here. The food was great and the beach is wonderful. We stayed for 5 days and wish it was longer. The only downside was the people selling the timeshares. We felt pressure to buy one but we aren't interested in being tied down to one place.
