The resort was excellent for us because we had two kids with us, ages 12 and 15. The size was good. We were able to easily and quickly access all areas. The pools were large and clean. The beach area was fabulous. Large, clean, plenty of chairs. Our room was two story with a balcony overlooking the beach. It had plenty of space but the upstairs loft was always hot. It was difficult to keep it below 80 degrees Fahrenheit but it may have just been our room. The balcony was large and had a table and 2 chairs. The food was good. The Mexican was excellent and the pizza at the Italian place was wonderful. There are some beach activities that are not posted, If you are interested in painting a picture they do that at 11 am on Friday at the beach. I recommend taking the catamaran sailing lesson on the first day for $45. Then you can use the catamaran free for your entire stay. 4 people can go on the sailboat at the same time.
Facing the beach, if you look right you will see some shops and restaurants on the beach. That is El Cortecito. The Dominicans there can be very persistant. They will call for you to come into their shop. The prices are high and if you love to haggle it is the place for you. If you just want a fixed price go to one of the last shops in the row, D'Juany Gift Shop #4 and ask for Jean, He has good prices that require little to no haggling, he speaks great English, and he lets you shop in peace. Tour groups often stop to shop with him for these reasons. He has business cards if you need one.
