Julio Nice, Shaggy and the entire entertainment team made this trip amazing for us! They were extremely friendly, helpful, funny and great at what they do. They did great in their performances. I was not happy with the food, too much American and not enough Dominican. The rooms weren't great and neither was the service at check out and check... More

My first time visiting DR and I absolutely loved it ! The food was great but the entertainment was the best. Julio Nice treated my friends and I like family, made sure we had fun the entire time we were there. I would highly recommend this resort!

Remembering the visit is all inclusive and not a 5 star hotel is a good first start. We found the staff incredibly pleasant and helpful. The rooms were average but the pools and beach were lovely. The nightly entertainment fun. The salesmen could get pushy but they are respectful. I really enjoyed the activities at the resort, from the yoga... More

Where to begin. Unless you upgrade to VIP there is really nothing special about this place. All of the good restaurants, snack areas, and even quality alcohol are in VIP only sections. The beach was filled with trash and don't plan on hanging out there unless you want to be harassed every 5 minutes by locals trying to sell you... More

The cost for value (one week from Toronto for $713 ) is excellent. Typical lifestyle vacations sales pitch resort, with lots of salesmen to bother you. This is a man made resort, lots of buildings, concrete and NO natural setting at all. The beach is non-existant, the room needed updating BUT the food was very good, lots of variety on... More

We lived in a junior suite in the block 40 what gave us access in VIP options ( blue bracelet) which I recommend strongly. The VIP option allowed us to go to the VIP beach and to the buffet of the Tropical resort. The advantages of the VIP beach are: the access to one bed with curtain, WIFI network, sushi... More

Amazing animation team!! Thanks for the water aerobics & pool dancing Droopy!!! In addition to day time fun, the night time at this resort is amazing! The nightly shows are wonderful and the ice disco can be tons of fun too. The bartenders make even the rainy days a ton of fun. If you spend the first day or two... More

At first it all seemed all right . I did read all the reviews before booking with trip advisor . Obviously just ignoring negative ones as I thought it was maybe their bad luck . Read all this carefully and think twice before choosing this resort ! To start with, Accommodation was so bad that I was just about to... More
