Resort is very nice, well maintained and easy to get around. We stayed in a room in the middle of the resort (Punta Cana complex) and didn't really need the transport to take us around as it was only a short walk to the main lobby and buffet restaurant and the beach. However we did enjoy using it on lazy... More

Resort The resort is nice but really really big, a bit too much for me. You have to take a train to go to the beach or restaurants, but the trains were well organized. Beach The beach is really cool, clean and the water is very clear. However it's really hard to find chairs we had to search for more... More

Everything seemed clean enough and relatively well maintained. The... More

Beach was nice as was the sea. Traveled across the island to go scuba diving and snorkeling on a boat trip and was extremely disappointed in... More
