The location was great, though ocean view rooms would have been better. The staff were helpful for the most part just very busy that weekend. There were a few issues with the room (leaking toilet etc) but it was livable. We should have dished out more $$ for the Casa Colonial, next trip.

This is the definition of a nice hotel. Very nice rooms, very well kept, very clean, very good food, friendly staff, excellent facilities, good bar (if you're a drinker, we're not) and generally a very beautiful hotel in a very beautiful hotel complex.

The property is beautiful! Located right on the beach the downside is they don't have any activities, the food only comes from one place and it's very expensive. It adds up. One thing I will say is that the staff is awesome! One morning I was very bored the girl was able to find me a para sailing and jetski... More

Went to DR for a business trip and decided to take a side trip for the weekend. Found this resort on Tripadvisor. What a pleasant surprise! I really enjoyed the two nights staying there. The staff are very polite. They are friendly but not intrusive. Since I was there alone, I only wanted to enjoy some "me" time. They give... More
