This resort is perfect for a quiet, relaxing getaway. we found it an ideal stay for a family traveling with young children. it is only a half hour from the airport which is great after a long day of traveling. Also, the resort is quaint and everything is within close proximity but you have the benefit of being able to use the larger, more "active" facilities of the Bavaro or Punta Cana, if you are looking for more action. Those sister resorts looked lovely too but definitely had a more lively, party atmosphere.
The grounds are the most beautifully landscaped and maintained that I have ever seen. Everything at this resort is immaculate. This stretch of beach is breathtaking - not a rock or piece of coral anywhere.
The food is quite good at this resort. It exceeded my expectations. They could strive to make some improvements in this area, but in general, the quality and selection is fine. Their potatoes and chicken are much tastier than what we get here. They taste free range/organic.
Lastly, the people are amazing. The are fun loving and warm people who clearly love children. It never seemed contrived or put on for tips. Yes, it's an all inclusive, but they deserve tips. You won't meet nicer people anywhere. This resort has done a great job in their hiring of staff. Professional, friendly, great English and hard working. The butler service is an added touch of luxury. We enjoyed the friendships we made with them, especially Marjorie, she's wonderful.
In closing, I think this resort is very good value for money. I would go definitely go back and would recommend this resort to my friends and family and anyone looking for a quiet vacation.
PS: bring your Ipad or laptop since they have free wifi in the lobby.
