The hotel is located in a secluded area at the end of a road on top of a hill. It has a beautiful view of the ocean, the city just across the bay and is basically surrounded by mountains. We had a problem with our room on the second day due to fumes coming up into our room from the... More

This hotel has the best views I have ever seen. It is stunningly beautiful. The hotel should not be confused with the island hotel known as Bacardi island. It has an great beach, and main pool is ok too. sunbeds are hard to get though. especially around the pool. The food is ok. Other facilities are not worth mentioning really,... More

It's a hotel to enjoy swimming pool with the open bar and free buffet. It's not expansive, don't wait an high quality but for the price, it's a very good deal! Day trips are expansive. The staff is very friendly.

This is a place that has not been touched by millions of sightseeing groups & overcrowded beaches. We drove 2 hours from Santo Domingo airport by shuttle. The sights were amazing. Saw nature untouched. Lots of farm animals, crops of rice patties & beutiful palms. Arrival to our hotel was breath taking! Bohemian in appearance. The staff is so friendly... More

No doubt that the hotel is great. All facilities are good, but the view of the bay at night is unique. The beach is very nice and the view from the elevator to the beach is wonderful. It is a place to return for another holiday. Thing to improve for the management: the restroom was equipped with a jacuzzi, but... More

I don't know if I will call it a regret, but we only stayed 7 days and I think we should have booked for more! Total relaxation - it was too cool. It was my first time with an all inclusive resort - and it took some getting use to in not taking my wallet every where! Now I probably... More

After choosing the hotel with my partner we were in two minds at the beginning because of the three hour coach ride to the complex considering we were on a flight from the uk for around 9hrs! But what can I say, the hotel and the area was worth every second of the wait, the hotel was impeccable in every... More

Just returned after a 2 weeks staying at the GBP with my wife. Had a fantastic time, food was very good, staff were fantastic, friendly and helpful. We were there mainly for the whale watching. We had fantastic views from our room (436) of the bay and the town. Our only gripe is the high charge for the safe, $4... More

First the good - beautiful hotel. well manicured grounds and attentive staff. We had a 5th floor room which was spacious and kept very clean. A wonderful view over the bay and the little town, amazing sunrises. Room equipped with safe, (for which you had to pay an extra $4 per night) TV, coffee machine and a mini bar. A... More
