This hotel location is great. We got a nice room on House #1 on 2nd floor after we wrote to the hotel. They made it possible. House #1,2,3 are closer to beach.
Beach is really nice.. a little waves but white sand and blue skies and ocean. Nice to relax. Plenty of beach seats....
Front desk people are nice, as well as bar tenders and waiters. Rooms are big OK because you do not want to saty on the room... go to the beach !!!!.
Breakfast menu and dinner are OK... not the best food quality but for the price you paid it is acceptable.
LUNCH is the worst menu I ever seem in a buffet, not too many choises and always the same... They had a sport bar 24 hours... whre we can get hamburguers and hot dog frozen and you have to warming up on microwave...
Free Internet on Lobby is really bad... better to said that it is not.
Pretty much everything was great until the time to request a taxi.
Asked on front desk for a taxi and they said, it will arrive on-time.. and it was... we were told that should be 38 USD to airport... WELL .. this is something I hate....
After arrive to hotel... I tried to pay this taxi driver from hotel with some Dominican Pesos and some Dolars but he has not change ... so I decide to pay with only dolars and he said that does not have change... I told him.. give back some Dominican Pesos and he said that does not have .. I could not believe it.. I got so upset of this.. so I had to let taxi driver the keep all change because I was on a rush...
Really unpolite this situation ....
