Being at this hotel was like being at a "rave" that lasted 7 days! They played nothing but old school dance music, and some top 40 played in 'fast forward'. I was hoping to hear some tropical music on my holiday to the Dominican. The animation team was repetitive and boring (unless of course you were drunk) You're in the... More

Food was very good--Lobster bisque, grilled to order sirloin steak, lobster tails, chocolate eclairs were some of the delectables we enjoyed over the course of the week. Rooms are dated but clean. Fourth floor rooms do not have a balcony but are two room suites so therefore more spacious. No elevators which could possibly be an issue for those with... More

The resort had lots to offer for the young ones and those young at heart. Entertainment nightly, 1st for the little ones, then dancing, singing etc.. The pools were great, hot tub not so hot, lukewarm. Only trouble was getting the cleaning (day) staff to clean the room, she would argue with us saying she had been in the room,... More

Myself and a couple girlfriends stayed at this resort last February. This resort definitely had one of the best parts of the beach in my opinion, and the buffet was beach front! It was awesome to wake up in the morning and eat fresh-cooked omelettes with the ocean breeze. The staff was very friendly and accommodating to our requests. Resort... More

We have spent 4 days here so far. Nice clean resort. The staff are friendly and they do a great job of entertaining the guests trough out the day and an excellent show in the evenings. I need to say Walter; Melvin and Omar and all the rest of the staff are lots of fun and keep the crowd laughing.

Vacation was great! Hotel was small and we enjoyed that being with the whole family. Jonathan from the entertainment team was great all week. He always stopped to say hi with my children, made us feel at home. All in all everything was great. We had great food. The beach was close, clean on the side we had to use.... More
