If all inclusive is not your type of vacation, this is a great option. Very reasonable price for Punta Cana. The room was clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. The hotel is old but the grounds are well kept, clean with lots of trees, flowers and a pool. We saw lots of hummingbirds. You can also get free... More

We stayed for a couple of days. Compared to another hotel nearby with the same price, this one was overall a better deal, it had a nice pool, good-size rooms and a better location, with breakfast included.
