Wash rooms you would not want to enter in a bodysuit. Plagued by beach sellers every 5 minutes. Bar ran out of water. Journey time is lengthy from Punta Cana. Have absolutely... More

Beach and water beautiful but the tour was a lot to be desired...nothing great...food was bad and not enough variety...drinks were under average. Way too many people. Maybe our tour wasnt the best...paid $90 per person and it was 4 of us...we would have been better tended to at our resort!

The island has about 300 people living on it. We got to see the turtle hatchery. On the island we got to try a coco... More
