From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff. We booked our vacation thru Funjet Vacations, our concierge, Caesar, was great. He made our stay very enjoyable. Thanks Caesar! The food was incredible, the beach and pool area were perfect! We have 3 boys, 9, 10 and 14. They always had something to do. We... More

Just going to make this short but sweet. Stayed here in November 2011. Resort is amazing, so much to do and the ala carte restaurants were unbelievable. Avoid the casino!!! You never ever win. The shuttle around the hotel was so handy. The beach was outstanding. We stayed privileged and it was worth every penny. Would definitely return again!!!

I brought my mother (who is handicapped) on vacation for a week's stay and it's been the worst vacation of our lives. Day 1 - third floor, no elevator Day 2 - new room, still unclean from checkout Day 3-7 - 30 min waits for transport Dirty rooms, no maintenance and cockroaches. AVOID!!!

My friend and I decided to take a surprise vacation (go to the airport with just a suitcase, and pick a random destination, you know, just your typical Monday), and our adventure brought us to the Dominican Republic and Punta Cana. I'll open by saying that, though enthused about this choice, I knew it meant I would be staying at... More
