Relaxing!!

Clean, modern and built for comfort. Their most priced asset is the staff: friendly, respectful and efficient they cater to your wants and aim to make your stay a pleasant one. They have a peculiar way of greeting you with a smile and placing their right hand over their heart, nice gesture. The hotel is halfway between Punta Cana & Santo Domingo, away from the noise and hassles of a city. The beach is not the greatest but is well kept. The sea dumps large amounts of algae upon the beach but the water is clean and warm and the scenery is easy on the senses. Oddly there are many stray dogs nearby and they wonder upon the beach. People feed them and they return, a bit of a nuisance unless you are an animal lover. Expect to be pestered by beach vendors, my suggestion is you tell them you aren't interested, they eventually get the message. The hotel itself is part of a chain and they have staff on hand that will try to sell you some sort of membership. Your choice, really.Food is plentiful (Various restaurants with varied themes) but you must make reservations because they are small, yet worthy of the experience. The swimming pool area is a favourite and it has a children's pool. The grounds are well kept, pleasant and even feature two beautiful Flamingoes, a favourite spot for pictures. There is a safe and well kept Children's care room and a play area as well, should your children get sick of being at the beach.The rooms are spacious, well kept and comfortable, the only annoying items are the door to the bathrooms, for some strange reason they built these large sliding doors that have about 2" gaps at each end affording little privacy. And each morning someone enters the rooms before the chambermaids do for unexplained reasons, barges in unannounced. nothing ever got lost but is a strange and annoying practice that becomes worrisome when they do it while you are still in the room.The Wi-Fi is reliable and there are shows in a theatre area by the pool which comes alive at dusk. Again, very much your choice. Is free and the free bar is right behind you. Perfect combination.We had a good time, felt well treated and would go back again. It was worth every penny.

Mel, Franklin, Carlos, Ruth and Mario were awesome. Melvin got us all involved in most of the activities.

This hotel is really great! We loved how quaint it was. Not crowded. Had the pool to ourselves much of the time. Great place! Would recommend it if you want a relaxing vacation. You can participate in as much or as little as u want. Beautiful place!

Emotions trip

We had a great time at Emotions. The entertainment was the best! Melvin, Franklin, Ruth, Juan Carlos, Mario, Carlos, and Argeles. They get you engaged and made the days more fun! Games and beach volleyball, Zumba, dancing, bike tours, and shows all wonderful. The adults only section was great as we had the pool to ourselves much of the trip. Beautiful beach and wonderful time!

Good resort for relax :)

I visited Emotions in June by myself (solo vacation). Both my room and outside territory were always clean. I'm very glad that I had a good WiFi Internet everywhere within Emotions hotel, even on the beach.There were a lot of activities during the day: bachata/salsa/merengo dancing lessons, Spanish lessons, darts/frisby competitions, evening show, ping-pong etc. Good meals in Mexican/Italian/Dominican restaurants (all for free).The only disadvantage of this property is that there are no entertainment for adults near it on the beach like night clubs, discos, dance shows. So Emotions will be the best if you travel not alone but with your family or couple. Nevertheless there was an excellent animators staff that always entertain you.Thanks to all the staff of Emotions for made my vacation great!Special thanks to Ruth and Franklin.

Loved it !

I visited this resort from Jun 21 to Jun 28th. I was travelling solo and hoped this resort would fill the bill for what I was looking for. Mission accomplished !!!The resort is smaller in size which I prefer. I was slightly worried about the fact that the beach is across the road from the main resort. Trust me this is absolutely nothing to be concerned about. It was literally like crossing a side walk. I am so happy I didn't allow this to deter me from going to Emotions.The resort is newer, I understand it was built about 2 years ago. They lay out of the resort was great and easy to move around.I will tell you the staff are really what made my trip. They are extremely friendly and always take the time to have a conversation with you. I have to send a shout out to Roman Villar who is a server at the beach. He went above and beyond to provide great service and ensured my wine glass was never empty. Juan Gilberto was by far the best bartender, always friendly and provided over the top service.I was there in June which is low season for the resort, although the resort wasn't full by any means I didn't feel this impacted the quality of services that were provided.My room was in Block 5 and the room was nice, it was fairly up to date and included a mini bar and coffee maker in the room.I enjoyed the on site coffee shop that was like a Starbucks it was great to get specialty coffee any time of the day.The food overall was quite good. Nothing out of this world but way better than the Cuban dining experience.The beach was absolutely fantastic, white sand and very warm ocean water. The pool also looked nice however I am a beach person.I really loved the outdoor covered area at the beach. This is where I spent my evenings enjoying the ocean breeze while meeting new friends.Would I go back to this resort? ABSOLUTELY.....I can't wait to return to Emotions.
