I was in Puerto Plata 3 years ago in an all-inclusive resort. All I did was eat, sleep, lay on the beach and only leave the "compound" on guided tours. Oh, and the all-inclusive places all have the same mass produced food. I hated it. When I went back to DR, I really wanted to SEE and EXPERIENCE the country.... More

I have stayed here on about 6 or 7 occasions when in the Punta Cana area on business, and feel comfortable here. The physical condition of the rooms has improved over the past few months, it's clear they're doing work on the place, and the buffett breakfast, including my always requested scrambled eggs and ham, is always delicious. Basically, I... More

My friends and I stayed here on a golf trip to the Dominican in Oct 2011. We enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were simple, yet clean. For the price, we thought it was good value. By not staying in an all inclusive, we ate out at a number of local establishments, and had a great time. There was a... More

It is a 5 min walk to the beach area. There are shops along that way also. In the opposite direction within a 15... More
