I stayed her last month for 5 nights with two girlfriends as a guest of someone who owns timesharing there. We had a two-bedroom suite, which was pretty nice. I don’t have any complaints about the room. Room service did a great job with keeping the room clean and everything was a nice size with enough space for all of us. We were considered "VIP" and had access to certain pool and beach areas that others weren’t, which was cool. There was a higher level of VIP for owners that gave additional access.
While there are many restaurants on the property none of them were good with the exception of the buffet. It was very hard to get reservations and then once you got there and were disappointed with the food, made it all not worth it. There were nights when we left the restaurant and went and ate at the buffet after because the food was so horrible. They have to do better with making the food at the specialty restaurants (Japanese, Indian, Mexican etc.) taste like it is suppose to taste instead of adding a Dominican twist to all the food at all the restaurants which doesn’t give you the true specialty feeling.
They try to get you to buy timesharing, which is very annoying when you are trying to enjoy your vacation. You think they are being nice just to be nice and then find out that they just really want you to come to the meeting. Very deceiving. There is so much focus on this VIP stuff that it made it hard to just enjoy yourself.
The Thursday night party was a lot of fun. The Sunday party that we were looking forward to was cancelled due to rain, we were disappointed.
I got a massage outside, which was nice. I don’t know what the person that gave it to me was as experienced as I would have liked her to be. I got a combination of three different massage types but the entire massage felt the same the entire time. It was enjoyable for the price, which I was able to negotiate with the person who sold it to me on the beach.
There are much nicer hotels to stay at I wouldn’t come back here. For what I paid as a guest of an owner it was worth it. But I wouldn’t have paid full price to stay here.
