My siblings and I took our mother here for her 70th birthday. The flight was GREAT on the Thomson Dreamliner even without the upgrade, So much so that any long haul now will need to be on an upgrade or the Dreamliner. Our journey of around an hour from the airport (which does not have one seat in it so... More

We visited the Dominican Republic for a lazy holiday to recover from our daughter's very recent wedding. The hotel was all that we hoped that it would be, and more. From the time of our arrival we received personal attention, and found that everyone was keen to make the holiday as enjoyable as possible. The staff were very friendly and... More

My husband and I just returned from the Riu Bachata with our two children (ages 14 and 11) and we had a wonderful time. Hotel check in was very quick and easy, we did have a small "hiccup" when we first arrived as the room we had been given only had one bed...obviously this wouldn't work for four people! We... More

Ok good stuff first. The natural beach is beautiful. Really nice to see they haven't controlled it to much and just let it grow. Grounds are really well kept. Staff in the bars and the Restaurants are really helpful and friendly. Bad stuff Food is terrible, they have gone for quantity rather than quality. The food is the same every... More
