My family an I really enjoyed the staying. The staff is so friendly and location is great. Breakfast/lunch/dinner buffet was good. The hotel was very good. A big thank to Mr. Francisco Diaz/Animation team, they kept us entertained through out time/week there with the wonderful shows. Beautiful beach/pretty clean and service was fine, we were lucky that we had a... More

Good drinks, good food. Ok shows- amateurs. The staff will hit on you constantly if you are a girl. All inclusive. Most staff know little English. The summer is their slow season so not everything advertised is made available. No hot water the 1st day but otherwise fine after that. Lots of flies but they couldn't help that. Not the... More

I have reviewed this hotel 5 other times now but it has been refused each time. I don't know how else to say it except to post my pictures of all the mildew, mold, run down condition of our "recently renovated superior room" and let the reader decide. The food, of which I don't have any photos, was terrible. I... More

I went here in February of this year (2015) and it wasn't the worst vacation I have ever been on but there was definitely some pros and DEFINITELY some cons. Ill start off with the pros since its a smaller list but that's okay. Hotel layout was nice, easy to get around. The beach was pretty good, much better than... More

Just returned from a week of sand, sun, food, fun, and relaxation at Celuisma. I will start out be saying that my husband and I have been traveling south every year for 11 years, and have taken our two small children along for the fun the last 4 years. We have stayed in the DR, Cuba, Jamaica and Mexico...and we've... More

What an incredible experience...if you want to relax and be in the presence of good company this is the place for you. Although they have many areas for improvement, it is a bit outdated and I'm used to a four star room. My room had the basic necessities and nothing more. It was clean and I had an ocean view....

I went there with a girlfriend, and we had an amazing time. I really don't know why people are complaining. The room was clean, the food was good, the workers are very nice, the beach is awesome and the drinks are cold. We really had a great time!

Celuisma was one of the best experiences i ever had. The entertainment crew was amazing and the people were so warm and loving. They hug and kiss you and remember your name after one day. We walked around the beach and it turns out the other hotels beside us were more expensive but had worse beaches with tons of rocks... More

I'm 22 and went here with my boyfriend for a week away from the snow. I read travel advisor before, and we went with super low expectations considering the reviews. We had an excellent time, our rooms were clean, the beach was great, the drinks were cold - what more could you ask for? Even the food was great, I... More
