I've been going to this hotel even before Celuisma bought it and what I love the most is the beach. I like to make reservations when there is no Holiday so I can have the beach for myself...it is the most relaxing and fulfilling experience. A great day in the sun and swimming in the clear waters is the best... More

A fascinating choice is where to pluck down your family on an All - Inclusive vacation...while most of the hip young vacationers flock to Punta Cana, my gang opted for the more seasoned Puerto Plata.. Once grand a half century ago, it still offers natural beauty and ridiculously good value..there is vibrant 3rd world life happening all around the property... More

Being the first time I used my timeshare week was an outstanding experience. The facilities were amazing, the food and different restaurants were superb, but among other experiences the warmth of the staff were the most. I would recommend Celuisma to anybody who really want to enjoy a great vacation week. Cant wait to return next year and enjoy the... More

Do not go to this hotel. They are clueless in regards to customer service. I had an issue with my reservation (of which Cheaptickets is culpable) and I explained this to several people including the manager (3 times), he then told me what my problem was-he explained my issue back to me and offered no help in trying to fix...

Regarless of what many have said, this hotel is amazing. Great hospitality, great food, awesome employees. The pool and beach activities are beyond great. The room and common areas stayed clean. I wouldn't go anywhere else!

We just spent one week in this hotel, we had a great time. Down to earth people who bend over backwards to get you what you need. But as I mentioned in the title if you are in any way related to any royal family this is not for you, nor will it cost you like a palace. There is... More
