I loved the experience. I'm from the Dominican Republic but it was my first time staying at a resort. It was gorgeous. The staff was really welcoming and they all made sure we were having a good time. Julie Nice and Shaggy were AMAZING with the entertainment and they're love for my group and the people at the resort period.... More

I stayed at this resort for my birthday & it was amazing. I had a lot of fun thanks to Julio from the entertainment staff ! Make sure you check him out for a good time. The location was great and the rooms were clean ! The all inclusive is a great deal since there are bars every where !!

Stayed in October 2014 for six days. My first review somehow "disappeared" from Trip Advisor so I will try this again, however shorter. The Good: Friendly bartenders and housekeepers. Rooms in building 41 were huge and modern. Well manicured grounds. Nice pools. Seen better but not bad. The Bad: Food was terrible. I did get sick on my second day.... More
