tripadvisor Traveler Reviews

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.

Would come back!

This is a silent resort which is very satisfying. The room is ideal for everybody looking for a clean and tidy room. The staff is very friendly, and the restaurants all serve great food. My favourite is the Mexican Restaurant where they serve delicious beef fajitas. In the end, I would totally recommend this resort to anyone.

Quick vacation

This was a wonderful place to stay. We travelled with our 4 year old. They have everything you need on site including a kids club and kids entertainment. The staff and children's director TutiFruti was awesome. I only wished the pool was open later but understand the need to close and clean up. Our first few days was heavenly it wasn't that packed with people. End o f August. When they did show up..wow..very active loud by the pool. Which is fine but thought I'd mention it because not everyone likes that. I opted for the beach at that point with my little one because it was more peaceful. They have something for everybody.
