Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for two weeks from 7/11. We chose to come here as we had stayed in the Dominican the previous year, however this was in Puerto Plata and in an iberostar which was fantastic. We wanted to return but as we usually change our holiday destination each year we thought we'd stay in a different... More

When my wife booked our holiday here she told me that it was made up of 2 hotels with shared facilities so I was expecting something larger than we generally go to. She was nearly right, it was about 6 hotels in one. On the bus from the airport Stuart, the Thomas Cook rep informed everyone that the weekend we... More

Room key did not work 4 times in the span of 3 days, this issue occurred during my first stay in 2012. Front desk staff were unapologetic of multiple inconveniences and were too busy conversing with other staff to attend to problem quickly. Bar staff were unwelcoming and made us feel like we were disturbing them. Bar staff were checking... More

We booked via Thomas Cook for a late winter break. Thomas Cook staff were wonderful. After the nightmare of getting through immigration it was great to know that they had already checked us into the hotel, so on arrival we,were taken straight to our room. The room itself we could not fault, it was large, clean and tidy. The only... More

The hotel was beautiful. Grounds well kept and trains ran frequently which was good because the place is huge! We had an upgrade which put us closer to the beach area than main lobby. Lots of different activities for any age or group. Several pools, some crowded, some not, but beach was always crowded. Many Europeans staying here. Pools did... More

Customer service-useless. Extraordinarily difficult to reach, they do not answer the phone. 3 plus hour delay in check-in, but no compensation or refund, not a penny. This resort will take your money for a luxury experience, but will delver third rate service. The beach is great, probably it would require effort to ruin it and they are too lazy. Go... More
