First of all, the ac concern a lot of people have complained about is relevant...but not exactly true. We had an ac unit, but it was older (as the resort is) and was more like a fan as opposed to ac, but not worthy of the angry 'there is no ac it is too hot to be comfortable' reviews we... More

I stayed here for a week and I really enjoyed it save for a few very unfortunate incidents. The location was, in a word, fantastic! The beach was gorgeous, the grounds were clean, and there was nothing bad to be said about here. It was amazing and the scenery was to die for. The beach was lovely and there was... More

From Aug 2nd to the 9th. Had a great time with the 4 kids. The site is beautiful and, of course, the beach is amazing! I love Dominican beaches and its vegetation. The hotel is fine, nothing spectacular but perfectly fine. Anyway, I don't go there to spend my days in the room so I did not care that you... More
