Honestly one of my best vacations yet. The hotel is small and well run with great staff always happy and always making sure everything is going well for the guests. Charming room with good natural light streaming through the big window and we enjoyed the balcony to relax on with a drink early evening before dinner. Food was good and... More

My husband and I stayed there in April and have already booked for next April. Cannot wait! Not fancy but food was good, room was clean, you can procur a safe for $22 and no - it is not a skelton key as someone else said. Our maid was fantastic and only went into the room when we asked her... More

This is one of those places you don't go to many times in your lives. As far as the room goes it was comfortable, we slept well and the power shower was not too messy. Breakfast and other meals were simple and well done, fruit was especially tasty. The beach is a dream and the missus wanted to just sit... More

I went during low season probably I think it is a quit place. But compare to others resorts in Punta Cana, this is a small one. At that time, because there were not a lot of customers we had the pool for ourselves and nights were quiet. They don't offer a variety in the menu, almost everyday the same food.... More

Came with a small family group and had apartments close to each other. The complex had a well maintained garden, pool and patios. There are some local stores and a good pizza place just a short distance outside. The whole idea of this vacation was to be on the beach as much as possible and we were able to just... More

We had heard so much about the Dominican Rebublic we thought we'd give it a try and weren't disappointed. The first thing you notice is how hot it is when you get off the plane. We arrived at the hotel and checked in and settled into the room. Got changed and went for a wander around the complex, stopped for... More

I booked a snorkeling excursion off their beach tower and it was only $30 and I had a great time. The staff is super friendly and bilingual so there was never a language barrier. Its close to the beach and also near some local stores and pizza places. I would stay at this resort if I were to return to... More

Felt amazing staying at this beach paradise. The airport wowed us already, felt so warm when we arrived. Apartment was breezy, clean, smelled good. All the staff we encountered were pleasant and we found the facilities adequate. Hammocks, beds, take your pick we chilled out on the beach and met up with the rest of the family at night for...

Researched as always before booking and not disappointed at all. A nice hotel in a great place. Felt special from the minute we got there and after a quick check-in found ourselves in our room which was very nice and had amazing sea views. Exactly what we'd been hoping for, in a nutshell! Staff are on hand all day and... More

Thought this would be a good place to have a break with my wife as she had often mentioned Bavaro beach as being one of the places she wanted to visit. Neither of us were disappointed and thought this hotel was great value and also charming in it's own way. The staff take their time to welcome you and were... More
