Nice Place to Stay

The property is beautiful and the hotel staff is beyond friendly! They go out of their way to help you and make you feel comfortable. The property is about 35 mins away from the airport and about an hour into the town of Santo Domingo. There really isn't a whole lot do around the hotel it's self. A few bars and shops and a casino within walking distance. The hotel has a bar by the pool and one by the beach. There is wine and beer bar, they are extra but very good and still inexpensive. There are 2 buffets with good food but could use a little more variety. You have to make reservations at the 3 other restaurants. They do provide activities during the day and nightly shows, all a lot of fun! Rooms are clean and mini bar is restocked daily with water and other beverages. Overall we had a wonderful time and would recommend!

Best Vacation Ever!

Being that this was my first trip traveling alone, I didn't know what to expect. While staying at Emotions by Hodelpa resort I've never felt more at home. All of the employees and staff were extremely friendly and made this trip memorable. I would like to thank all the staff and give a special shout out to DJ Benji one of the best DJs amazing talent, Delvis always smiling and dancing, Carlos, Clara, Ruth, Toni, Rafelin the best caramel latte maker ,Victor, and Juan Gilberto. The food was superb both the buffets and restaurants. I will be returning in the near future.

Super nice!!!

Super nice hotel, lovely pool. The service was amazing from part of all the crew, specially at the pool bar Mr. Bienvenido was top of the class. And entertainers like Delvis and other crew were good as well. Had a good time there, will recommend this place!

Perfect paradise

My family and I spent five nights at this gorgeous resort and we all had an amazing time! All of the employees were extremely friendly and made the trip memorable especially Ruth and Carlos. They have two buffets with yummy food and three restaurants with more yummy food. They have a bar located right on the beach which was very convenient. There are also daily scheduled activities which was super fun. I strongly recommend visiting!!!

Nice resort

While on business in the DR, I stayed at Emotions for 4 nights. This is primarily a tourist resort but while on business the company put me at this location. The resort is all-inclusive and has several restaurants to choose from. The only issue is you have to book a restaurant the day before or you won't be allowed to eat where you want. The 2nd issue I had is when I tried to book the day before I was told "sorry that restaurant isn't open today". So when they have smaller occupancy they must close certain restaurants. Needless to say, eating at one of the themed restaurants is a challenge. Otherwise, the rooms were nice.
