I come to this hotel 3-4 times per year for a reason, its by far the best. Bavaro beach for 1 is prob the nicest beach in all of dominican republic.... bluest waters and whitest sand. The hospitality and the food at this hotel is incredible, you have several restaurants, each one offering a different style of food, all 5*. You must try the Japanese place, they cook right in front of you on a hibachi grill!!! This hotel offers everything for couples, and for families or just for when you want to get away from work ( ive gone there a few times alone just to get away from canada for a bit) You will not be dissapointed with your stay here!
