Lets start with the good. The grounds are beautiful, with lots of gardens and nature. Entertainment staff was great. Rooms are nice and clean with a nice big bathtub, and large patios. Beach is big a beautiful with really soft white sand beach. You can walk quite far out into the ocean on sand bars. The beach is not located... More

The entire resort is beautiful the beaches are fantastic they do get seaweed but it is cleaned daily and the swimming is fantastic. I took an... More

We went as a group of 6 in 2014. Loved the drinks, the beach and the hammock at the balcony. Beds were very comfy. The food was good but there were long lines for Japanese, French and steak restaurants so make sure you call and make reservation in advance to avoid the long wait! We had a great time! Had... More

Our first time in Punta Cana so we really didn't know what to expect. The grounds are very well kept and it is extremely pretty. The location is isolated as it is so far down the beach from other properties there is nowhere to walk. You can walk a far distance along the beach, but the seaweed this year prevents... More

We stayed Feb 10-17/2015. We enjoyed our holiday. We found the resort conveniently laid out. The lobby and main bar has plenty of sitting areas. Rooms were clean and stocked daily. Beds were very comfortable. Food was good, a nice variety. Al a carte restaurants were very good. You didn't have to prebook dining times.That was a nice bonus.The entertainment... More

Highly recommended. The place was beautiful and we'll maintained the service was excellent and food good. The rooms were clean and the bar fridge restocked daily. The beach was very nice but if the wind shifted to the east the water could be murky and weedy. Only 2 downsides. 1. Sales people continually pestered us to book future holidays through... More

Had a few problems that I would understand if this hotel was not rated this high. Our toilet was bloked all the time. We had to go elsewhere. We did not put toilet paper in the bowl but it was bloking anyways. We called three times to get it unbloked. After that, we just went elsewhere. The last time (on... More
