- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Very good resort, beautiful view, good rooms, good food....Everybody is very kind and helpfull. We had bad weather. Raining everyday but even than it's super ! One person is not ok√© and iT is the woman at the excursiondesk (Juana). You have to pay for everything. And when you ask for calling the people who are responsable for skydiving (Witch is included in the all inclusive ) iT isn't possible. IT is a pitty. The hotel is very ok and also everybody else , just....
This place is beautiful. Looking out over the infinity pool is the ocean. Turn around and your view is of lush mountains. Gorgeous. This resort is definitely on the quiet side, so it's great for relaxing and unwinding. Except during water aerobics, when the swear words and inappropriate lyrics of the music were verging on offensive. Not sure the instructors actually knew what the English words were saying. Which leads me to my next point, not a lot of English spoken by the staff. I know this seems to bother some vacationers, but I don't understand the expectation to travel to another country and to have them speak your language. Entitled attitude if you ask me. Learn a few phrases in Spanish and you're golden. The rooms were simple, but clean and stylish. Private plunge pool was nice and refreshing. The beach is gorgeous. It feels very natural and you can walk for miles either way. Food was good, seafood restaurant was delish and the pizza at the beachside bar was good. For a small resort the nightlife was ok. They had a nightly singer in the lobby lounge and the disco was fine, although not very busy. We tried to walk into Las Terrenas, but seemed to miss it somehow. Apparently, it is a lovely place, based on some of the guests who actually made it there!
This beach is gorgeous, and the property is spectacular. I always felt like I had my own space by the pool, at a restaurant or by the beach. The resort is really special, and the area is isolated and beautiful. A couple of words of warning:*the food isn't great. It's not terrible, but do not come here if you want amazing meals. Sublime samana next door and the near by town of Las Terrenas all have great food options so you can get some great meals, but it won't be all included. *there are lots of mosquitos. come prepared.
This place is absolutely gorgeous. Everything went smoothly from check-in to check-out. The staff was attentive and the animation team was totally adorable. My week here was definitely quiet and relaxing; if you're looking for more of a Spring Break party place, maybe head to a different resort. There were Yoga classes twice a day under the palm trees, and El Gato lead the cutest Aqua Gym class. So if you want to do stuff and meet other vacationers, you can. But if you prefer to be left alone, that's easy too. No one pushes too hard.Wifi was excellent all over. So if you're looking to UN-plug, you'll have to be disciplined.As for getting here from SDQ, it's really not that bad. From the airport, take a taxi to the bus stop (at the entrance to the toll road) From there, you'll take the giant air-conditioned tourist bus to Las Terrenas. It's about 2 hours, and the whole ride is beautiful - seriously get a window seat. Once you're off the bus in LT, it's a quick cab ride to the resort. I'm horrible at currency conversion, but I think I spent less than $35 USD from SDQ to V. Spanish skills probably helped, but even without them I bet it wouldn't be too bad.
The area and resort is simply beautiful but it caters to an old crowd. No music on the Beach or pool area...Told ppl don't like it. Felt like you are in outside library. Never been anywhere like this.Nighttime music was so bad and 70's style wedding music was hard to endure after a few evenings.Only outside bar area was by the beach with seating for 4 ppl.Couldn't escape the "Volare"songs ! Food was mediocre and could do much better. Odd melange of foods and fish was not very good nor fresh,wine choice was simply horrid.Food selections were bare minimum and breakfast saved by fresh smoothies and omelettes.Hog dogs for breakfast is just simply sad..: ask for bacon as they tend to hide it.Food by beach is same, pre cooked,Hamburger, Hot Dogs and fried chicken that sit in warmers and if you don't manage to get there fast enough, it's just dry and bland.Many of us headed outside the resort to enjoy some great food and the beautiful area.Great people and lovely area. I will return but not to this resort.
