My mom and I stayed one night at Aqua Village & Spa in May 2013 when the resort was running a $39 per night special promotion (food not included). What a deal! The resort is absolutely beautiful, and the staff and security guard are super friendly. We got room #16, which was a standalone 1BR unit that we really liked. It was very clean, and the shower had great water pressure.
The next morning, we walked around the resort, taking lots of pics since it was so pretty. We were very lucky that it was sunny that day! There are small tables around the pool, and they allowed us to eat breakfast there instead of in the dining area. Our entire experience at Aqua Village was a wonderful way to start our 10-day trip to the DR. It's too bad we only stayed there one night, but we had already planned on driving to the Samana peninsula the next day to explore other parts of the island.
If you are staying in the Puerto Plata area, I would highly recommend Aqua Village in Playa Cofresi over the all-inclusives in Playa Dorada.
