This resort is absolutely fantastic. The meals were great, hot, exotic and absolutely great. The entertainment was terrific. The bars were great. I had read a few writeups on this resort and I was totally pleased with everything. If you get a chance to do the horsebacking riding - (the 2-hour one) worth every US penny that i paid.

Myself and two friends (all female and under 25) just returned from the Flamenco after a one week stay from Feb.24 - Mar.2nd. We were stunned with the beautiful surroundings, the immaculate grounds and the paradise-like setting. The beach, the pool, everything is breathtaking! We were in a lovely 3rd floor room (with a huge vaulted wood celiling) in Building... More

I stayed at the Grand Flamenco Punta Cana from February 26 to March 4. My co-travellers were my 12 month old daughter, my husband, and my parents. The food was pretty good. My parents thought it was fabulous. I'm a picky eater, so I wasn't quite as thrilled, but I was definitely satisfied. I loved the breakfast. I think I... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here from Feb 20-27 and we thought that it was great! I think that people that found faults with this place have issues that go beyond the hotel. When we arrived in our room another couple entered 5 min. later (overbooked) and they were pretty ticked off about the mishap so we offered to switch... More

We spent "Presidents Week" (Feb.17-24/04) at this hotel and it was a fabulous stay. We were a family of 10 people (8adults & 2 children). We had reservations through a consolidator for 4 rooms. Unfortunately, there was a mix up (don't know whose to blame since fingers pointed in all directions) but the hotel reception staff was willing to work... More
