We have been to the DR on a few occasions each time staying in a different resort. Our choice this time was Unremarkable...rooms were comfortable, pool area was beautiful and the beach was clean.
Drinks were inconsistent and service was below par. We don't complain and don't expect a lot but we do expect service---not 30 minutes for a drink that doesn't have alcohol (they don't automatically put alcohol in these drinks).
The reservation system for the restaurants was a joke!!! You were told they didn't have availability for a certain time so you were given a later or earlier time and restaraunt would be 1/3 full and stay this way all evening!!!
Internet isn't included, they wouldn't even let us check in for our flight the next day-they told us we would have to buy a 1 day pass in order to do a flight check in.
I could go on and on....all in all I don't recommend...
