This is an old property, but is currently being renovated. Everything is very clean and the food is pretty good. The staff is very friendly and service is excellent - they could'nt do enough for us. On a rainy day they sent a cart to bring us to the main building. Many of them spoke English, French or German. The... More

Just got back from a week in the Dominican, the hotel was nicer than the pictures. The staff there were incredibly friendly, the place was spotless, the food was delicious. The beach was cleaner then the resorts surrounding us. The pool was spotless. Our room was huge, it was on the third floor (a lot of stairs to go up)... More

I travelled to this resort from November 11-18, 2014 with my family. I will start out by saying if you are looking for a 5 star this isn't the place for you. When travelling I am not to picky on how fancy the room is, I go on vacation to spend as little time in my room as possible. I... More

We've met many Canadian and Americans and made many friends. We plan to return this winter with 4 of our older grand kids. We became members. We're looking forward to other friends that will be there. A great place for a reasonable priced vacation place.

Had a great time even though it was off season and a little quiet (was not permitted music very loud) however.....one of the staff members went above and beyond to make the trip unforgettable! Esmeralda (Barbie) was always around to liven things up and was amazing with everybody from the kids, adults, and elderly! I think she made everyone feel... More

I've been going to this hotel for over 10 years since it was called Playa Naco. It is a very good family resort. I was disappointed in 2013 but now it has improved alot. The hotel is the largest complex in the playa dorada. The kids club is a favourite for my son. The food is excellent with a wide... More

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
