Went to this resort on my vacation and loved it there were so many things to do I couldn't fit them all in the staff was awesome, the guys that host the daily events and comical to say the least especially the one they call Lenny Kravizt. The food was great and there were so many other restaurants for this... More

We stayed at the resort in March for a week. Although 3 days of our vacation was spent in the hospital, being treated for a bowel infection from a different resort, the days surrounding this made the trip worthwhile. The time we had to enjoy the resort was spent touring, and there was a lot to cover. The pool boys... More

this resort is greatly misrepresented on the many websites. This resort boasts 20+ restaurants, sport bars, lounges but it's extremely misleading because when my party and I got to the resort we were literally denied access to everything the resort had to offer except for 1 buffet (that served very limited food that was always stale), 2 restaurants and a...

Usually, time-share operations can be identified by some reference to attending some kind of meeting or event or whatever, usually accounting for 2 hours of your time. Those I've attended also gave free or greatly discounted rooms as part of the come-on. In this case, we found the "deal" on Cheap Caribbean which we had successfully used before for resorts... More

Such a great time at this resort. The place was beautiful and the food was delicious. Very clean. The staff always worked hard to make everything perfect. The pool activities and night time shows with Romeo, Salami, Baby face, and mosquito made the stay even better!

This was my first time in the Dominican Republic. I was there with 7 other people to celebrate my 40th birthday. From start to finish this was a great place to stay... and the price was unbelievable!!!! I purchased my vacation from Cheap Caribbean.com. With a 6 night stay, airfare, resort stay and all inclusive (food and alcohol) going out... More

This resort was absolutely beautiful. It was my first time out of the United States and I can't wait to go back. The staff was amazing. The most fun was had with Romeo. Not only is he good looking but He was the most fun, energetic, friendly worker/dancer there. Also good was Salami, BabyFace, Mosquito, Leny and Papi. But overall,... More

Overall, I enjoyed my stay at this resort. However, be aware that it's operated on a type of 'caste' system, with many of the privileges, beaches and restaurants ONLY available to vacation owners. The resort really plays up the opportunity to enjoy all benefits during their vacation sales pitch that they will do their best to ensnare you into going... More

This was the worst resort I have ever been to, I cannot believe others have given it more than 3 stars. The physical beauty of the resort is its only redeeming quality. The customer service is absolutely atrocious. You are not allowed more than 2 dinner reservations per week, but you can go to "guest services" at 3pm and ask... More
