As many newlyweds, we traveled to Punta Cana for two weeks last summer for our honeymoon. It was the first time for both of us to travel in this kind of all-inclusive hotels and even though it was not a bad experience, both of us have since agreed that we won't choose this type of vacation again.

We stayed at this property for the 3rd time in April 2014 just getting around to writing this review. We had been very happy here in the past. This time...not so much!

Three of us stayed for 7 days. We checked in on a Saturday at 2:00. The front desk was very unorganized and didn't provide any helpful information at check in. For example, it would have been nice to be told at check in that you need to pay $4 per day for the room safe, ir that the pool bar... More

I rated 3 but easily could have been 4. many aspects of the property are 4 but the food is very average, and the desserts at most meals are lacking. We selected to upgrade to the Diamond club for several reasons when we booked. Closer to the beach and pool, the private restaurant, the towels in the room when we... More

We enjoyed our week-long stay at the resort. The food was good, no complaints. Beach was beautiful as expected. Pools were very nice. They have a decent waterpark for kids (10 and under), so-so mini-golf course, etc. Rooms were a good size. The beds were pretty lousy. Biggest issue is with the size of the resort. It is HUGE. Probably... More

Stayed from 5.7-19.7.14. After sending a email requesting a complementary upgrade we arrived to find we'd been allocated block 29 which was the Diamond club. Great start! Food. Main buffet choice was pretty good bit could be hit and miss if the food was hot enough. Can be really busy at peak time and you can easily find yourself arguing... More

Only problem was that hotel was a little too big. We went in July so beach and swimming pool will be very busy in the peck season as it was very hard to get sunny beds after 1100 . Very clean.. Staff let you get on with your holiday, no hanging around to be tipped.
