What is it? It is a massive all inclusive resort with multiple mini-resorts or properties and approximately 4000+ people on the grounds at any given time. It's good for such a massive place. They are set up in such a way that you don't really know how many guests are around until you visit the beach or attend the evening... More

When you are at a resort in Punta Cana, how bad can it be? The grounds were well kept, the rooms were spacious and clean, there were plenty of pools, and the beaches were glorious. The resort has entertainment every night and nice spacious lobbies for drinks. The food was hit and miss. Some meals were better than others...the buffets... More

After reading some of the negative reviews I was a bit skeptical but take them with a grain of salt unless you are a super picky person. We stayed in the Bavaro Diamond Club section which entitled us to some extra perks during our stay from Jan 11-18. Some of these included 4 ala cartes, exclusive breakfast and lunch at... More

Stayed here in February of 2013 with my now fiance. We were looking for a nice, inexpensive all-inclusive getaway. My favorite part about the resort is that it is huge and well maintained. You don't have to worry about getting sick of the same scenery. There are three different large pools to choose from, and plenty of places to eat.... More

We stayed in the Bavaro section from January 11 - 18 in a Junior Suite Superior which is your basic room. The room could use some updating but was adequate. The housekeeping staff did an excellent job of keeping things spotless. Mini bar, towels and bathroom toiletries were replenished daily - if you use a face cloth pack a couple... More
