Great potential to be a 4 star - but not quite there

Esthetically the property is beautiful. It's lush, well kept, very clean. It's a smaller property and very compact. Not a lot of distance between rooms and beach or rooms and pools. I booked the lead-in room category and friends we were travelling with booked the premium category. Main differences: included a la carte at the teppanyaki restaurant (we paid $15us per person), free safe (we paid $15 for the week) and they had free wifi. The rooms weren't that much better. Our room - The hotel has major water pressure and hot water problems. Although recently renovated, they did not upgrade their generators and the rep even told us that if we don't have hot water not to complain to them as there was nothing that could be done. I complained over and over and was finally able to have a lukewarm shower some of the time. I don't know why they upgraded their bathrooms but left the shower head from the 1980's with 6 strands of water. Very frustrating. The restaurants - Breakfast and lunch were excellent. Dinner at the buffet was always pretty good. Dinner at the a la carte by the beach was just ok. The teppanyaki was by far the best dinner choice. The Italian was terrible. Getting a reservation to any of them was frustrating. They only accepted reservations at 7am on the day of. So if you plan to eat at an a la carte you have to be up by the break of dawn to line up. They only allowed a small number of reservations and once they were gone that was it, yet the restaurants were mostly empty. I guess that's how they keep their prices down but it made me feel nickel and dimed as though they deliberately make it difficult to get a reservation and force people to eat the buffet. Beach/pools - the pools were very nice. We spent most of our time by the quiet pool. Plenty of loungers for all. The beach was lovely, sometimes seaweedy but most times not. It was small but you could walk quite a ways past the beach to a small town (about 15min to the left) or in the other direction to do horseback riding (not part of the resort). Also plenty of loungers on the beach and shade. Animation - the daytime activities were great. The night shows were terrible.Overall, the resort is a 3.5 star.

Lots of potential; amazing employees

The resort itself has a lot of potential. You can tell they are reinvesting money into the property, but there is still some work to do. The food was good, different selection each day. The liquor will leave hoping you had paid for Select. The beach is beautiful, just what you expect going to the Caribbean! What really made me rate this hotel "Very Good" instead of just Average is the people. Davidelki, Morelia, Yudeisi, Youssef, Ruddy and Angel are some of the names that made my stay memorable. Overall a good stay; worth what you pay for.

Very relaxing vacation and great entertainment (Mikiki and others). The food was AMAZING! I highly recommend for anyone looking for the remote and untouched side of the DR. I would like to visit again.
