We were VIP which means nothing because every other guest is VIP. It just meant that we weren’t limited to the buffet, nicer pool and nicer beach facilities. As others have stated, food and drinks were awful. The only decent place was the VIP restaurant, but you can only reserve once during a week stay. The food at the VIP... More

My husband and I met up with 9 friends and stayed in a large beautiful villa. It was spacious and kept clean by staff - inside and out. We stayed for 7 days... but could have stayed way longer! We all got "gold" braceletts for $57.00 each, which covered: our meals at any of the many restaraunts/bars + a chef... More

Seems lovely at first. Staff is gracious and resort is well maintained. Value seemed good for all inclusive. We had done an exchange through RCI and had two villas. We did go to the sales meeting, and they did not exert too much pressure. However once we said no, the level of attentiveness dropped dramatically. Food was poor at all... More

We went after driving 9 hours from delightful Punta Cana. Although paying a similar amount of money we were brought to a corner of this big 'resort'. Thank God we had a rented car. Otherwise you must be shuttled and totally dependent on ineficient and rude staff. Domenicans are very nice, but people there have issues. The first surprise was... More

My husband and I stayed in this resort with our parents and other family members. We rented a villa from a member of the resort and were treated amazingly well. For $57.50 per day per person for the all inclusive and for $1200 per week for the whole villa (3 bedrooms), I cannot imagine a better value. We were also... More

Well, needless to say I am shocked by the lower reviews. I just returned 2 days ago from LHVC with my husband and 2 children ages 7 and 11. For me, this was my 3rd trip in 14 months. For my family it was their 2nd in 14 months. We are planning to return again in the summer. Our first... More

Crown suites were clean with good service. They checked with us everyday regarding needs and comfort. Food was average in the buffet resturant, but significantly better in the VIP resturant and Blue lagoon resturant with great service. Alot of construction so lots of noise from heavy equipment. Constant requests for timeshare sales. Horrible beach except for the serinity beach for... More
