This was a great surprising experience.
it's all about a hotel review not Dominicans or outside locals or seaweeds that can't be controlled this time of the year...
RECEPTION: Great customer service... They speak some english and some french and some more....
We were switched room and they were amazing with it! We even got our room 2 hrs before they said.
You can also change your money at the front desk at the same rate almost as outside the resort.
This resort is located only a few min. from the downtown Bavaro... Soooo it was amazing for going out dancing!
we had visited a few different types of rooms and we were simply happy...
Bed were comfortable, AC was working great and bathroom was very clean.
BEST rooms: The suite ocean view 6301 was mine!
Can't ask for more
POOLS... warm water in the 3 pools.
Clean and well maintained yards.
Come on... you are in Dominican Rep. There was plenty but plenty of variety to survive for a week or two. Free bottles of water in the rooms, deserts... miam! good! and plenty of fruits every night.
If you need to eat after buffet hours... There is always the little restaurant by the beach and enough to choose from... WAY better than any Cuban resorts I have been and better than a lot of resorts I have visited also.
There are a few restaurant a la carte... but we enjoy the buffet food enough that we didn't need to book the a la carte restaurant!
DRINKS: Very good... not watered down!!!!
DISCO: they play some dance music (mix) and latin music too
in general: The resort has lots of latin american people visiting... not too many Canadians and mostly not many Quebecois... and I loved it... Nice to feel disconnected!
on the beach... yes locals will try to sell you a lot of things... but the security guy is very good at controlling that.
But the staff is very friendly and I was more than happy with my STAY at Vista Sol Punta Cana... I WILL BE BACK!! Thank you!
One little note: I saw a supervisor (non dominican) at the restaurant talking down to the employees ... THAT I didn't appreciate... I find that most Dominicans don't make much money and they work very hard at trying to make everything perfect... I thought they were doing a great job in the restaurant in keeping everything in order... no need to be talked down to them... especially in front of the clients... Encouraging them would be better and it would be nice to hear a felicidades every now and then... They deserve to be treated right and equal...
Not everyone has the same chances in life!
