Beautiful place to stay, we loved it here! The rooms were so clean, king sized bed (blanket & pillows) were like sleeping on a cloud, food was excellent, our 14 yr old son loved the pool, beach and gym, he had many kids his own age to hang with and the people who work there were very friendly.

The boy and I visited Punta Cana for 3 nights in May. When we landed it was raining, but the bellman told us not to worry, it doesn't rain much here. He was right! The next few days were beautiful. Don't forget your sunscreen as we both got fried (and fair skin we are not). The ocean was warm and... More

This was our first time visiting Punta Cana but it won't be our last. We were there from Nov 18-24 and had a wonderful experience. As you read these reviews, bare in mind that some people are really picky and will complain about everything under the sun, the sun included! I'm a well traveled person, but I'm not overly critical... More

The hotel is brand new (renovated 1 year ago), the rooms are big, comfortable, clean. Pool and beach amazing. The beach is not set up as typical resort, is has a more "natural" feel. The food is terrible, but in most all-inclusive hotels is the same. Staff was not friendly or helpful. Had to pay to go into the steamroom... More

We checked into the hotel on arrival and asked if we could get a room upgrade and pay extra. They told us there was nothing available until near the end of our trip. The hotel did not seem that busy. We had also asked for a room close to our friends on check in and they put us at opposite... More

Great location (25 minutes from airport), amazing amenities (1 young (~2-5 yr olds), 1 older (~5-10 yr olds) and 1 big water park for any age that you have to pay for). The rooms are very spacious...we have the family room (basic one) and it has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom and 2 balconies (1 of them [master room] has... More

Aesthetically, the resort is beautiful. The layout is dazzling. The only complaint I have about the beach water is that the pictures were not a true representation of what is actually there. There are weeds along the shore down the entire beachfront, making it feel as if something is crawling on you when you're in the water. The sports bar... More

My husband and 2 daughters (22 & 24) stayed from Nov 11-18. The property is stunning and the rooms are very spacious and beds are comfortable. The beach is beautiful although I was surprised that they didn't clean up the foliage at the shore, you have to wade through it to get to the nice sandy part or walk to... More

It was unforgatable vacation for my family. I would like to special thank for Manuel and Dahiana from Guest services We spent 6 nights at this hotel and every day there was new experience.
