I enjoyed my stay at this hotel...the rooms were clean, and well stocked...we always had hotwater and the airconditioner was like a freezer...the buffet was ok, but the Pizza Hut down the road was always available...the vacation club staff were not bothersome nor were the beach vendors...when you said no, they left you alone...the animation staff could maybe bump up...

My boyfriend and I travelled to this hotel from Feb 18-25. Our check in was super fast because we were the first ones out of the bus! Sit in the front and you're first in line at the hotel. They were ready to check us in and it took no more than 5 minutes. Being from canada, we didn't arrive... More

The check-in process can be a tad slow if you get there exactly at check-in time. There is no tour or map of the resort given, but the bellhop told us where to go eat and grab drinks. Once we got into the room, we noticed how clean it was. The bathroom is big, clean and tiled with marble. However,... More

My husband, son and brother-in-law spent 7 nights at the resort the Feb. 5th - 12th. It more than met our expectations. The staff were so helpful and pleasant. The beach was beautiful and the view of the mountain where the cable car operated was a wonder to see. Many enjoyed walking the beach including ourselves. Food was good and... More

Hotel: This was my third trip to The Domnincan Republic. This hotel is the saddest thing I've ever been to. When I booked this hotel, I though it was renovated in 2008.... The lack of service at the front desk is the first impression that hit's you when you arrive. Travelling for 17 hours you would expect that the staff... More

There are a number of odd things about this place that threaten to ruin a vacation if you don't know about them (which I didn't.) If you follow these carefully you can have a great time. Skip the buffet and make 7 PM reservations for the Michelangelo's ASAP upon arrival. (Unfortunately, this is not as easy as it sounds.) Bring... More

I had a great time and experience at this resort. Feb 3rd -10th Like most people on TA I was skeptical after reading some reviews, but ultimatly realized that some people are far too hard to please. As has already been said, Flights are out of the resorts hands, DomRep is in the Carribean so there will be bugs, the... More
