My wife and I stayed here for a week and we're very pleased. We got an exceptional price and were nothing but surprised by the location, the resort, and the service. I want to leave a special compliment for John Travolta and Droopy who we're excellent, friendly, and made the stay more enjoyable.

Lots of options to lay piece fully beside a waterfall pool, or have some fun down by the beach pool. This is where I spent my whole week, it was never a dull moment... More

When we arrived, at first we were impressed, the resort is beautiful. But our impression was quickly changed. The customer service was very poor! I am 6 months pregnant and we were given a room with 2 double beds which didn't comfortably sleep myself and my husband. We asked for a room with a king bed and were told none... More

So for 210 per person you received lodging, all meals and drinks (including alcohol). I live in Chicago and there were few flights available to the nearest airport, so... More

This was the first time in Puerto Plata for my wife and I, the flight was great and going thru customs when we arrived was painless.
