My wife and I are writing this review as we sip on drinks on the beach in the DR. I'll make this review quick and concise considering people don't give a sh** about our every move... - Staff is fantastic. I've been around the world and have rarely stayed anywhere with people so friendly. - Beach is subpar if you... More

I am an experienced traveler and have stayed at many all inclusive resorts all over Mexico and the Caribbean. This resort is as nice and the food is even better than most. I think the quality of food and variety is really above average. It's the staff that brings what could be a 5 star rating to a three. We're... More

This was a nice place to just sit and enjoy the island. No one was in a hurry and you could really have a good time. The food was wonderful and the drinks even better. There were a few issues with our room but at the end of the it was okay for the price. I would go back.

My experience here in 2014 was superb. My gf and I didn't want to leave. Hotel staff were friendly, the excursions that we went on were the icing for the trip. Ocean spa excursion was everything! Heavenly to say the least! If you are about relaxation and royalty treatment please please try it! The decor is also to die for.... More

Overall this hotel is excellent, staff very friendly and attentive - always approaching you whilst you lounge round the pool / on the beach asking if you need any drinks etc. Grounds very nicely kept with quite a bit of wildlife to see (they have flamingos all around!) Food also very good (apart from the Italian where food was always... More

My new Husband and I stayed here for our Honeymoon. We booked through Berwick Travel (Kelly Pinto is great-highly recommend!) which was great in helping us find a great place on a budget. The resort is huge..it has two sides- and adults only and family side. We stayed and the adults only and had access to both sides. They resort... More

I went here for a babymoon in early June. I was surprised to see so many expecting mothers which made me feel very comfortable. We opted to stay at the adults only because it would probably be one of our last trips in a while and we were able to get a good groupon deal. Overall I do recommend the... More

To begin with the staff at this resort were amazing. The food was just average and the property could use to be updated. My daughter's room had a leak from room upstairs, we called twice and no one ever came. The alcohol was not an issue at all. I would not consider property a 4 star by any means.

I bought the groupon and went with 2 of my girlfriends and had a great relaxing trip!! The food was amazing!!! Literally we did not find anything bad with the options. The tapas restaurant by far was our favorite!! Wish we had gone there more than once haha! The pizza bar by the pool is also really good. The buffalo... More

Visited with a group of friends. Royal is worth the upgrade. Pros: 15 min ride from airport, good food, adults only in the royal section, room service is prompt, small flea market closeby, pools, martini bar Cons: Bars close early (lobby bar closes at 12 which is a bummer), Non adult section is very crowded, hard to get any seats...
