We have just returned from a week at Sirenis Tropical suites and had a fantasic break. We have read a few of the reviews and can only say our experience was excellent. The journey from the airport was by direct transfer with VIP and took about an hour. It scared the living daylights out of us lol..... but this is how the Dominicans live! Not sure if there is such a thing as a driving test, but there was no road rage or stress....and no one was sick on our bus on either journey. It was worth doing just to see the old American MACK trucks with no bonnets and exposed wiring and the mopeds, one with two people on carrying a car bonnet and a chair cushion lol. ( If you are faint hearted I would suggest you book a hotel within the 10 min flight path of the airport to avoid this bumpy journey)
On arrival we were greeted with a cocktail ( the first of many that week ) the check in was swift and our cases taken to our room.
Our accomodation was spotless and air con and fans on for our arrival. The fridge was topped up daily with bottled water and soft drinks, And the towels and linen where changed daily also. In fact wherever we went there was someone cleaning or spraying.
Food is always an emotional subject as I think it is so hard to please so many nationalities all the time but I canot fault it, there was somthing there to cover all tastes. Also the level of service and attention to detail was something that could be taken on in the UK, after a few days the guys knew our names and what we where drinking. They always had a smile despite working some incredibly long hours. Jonathon who served in the Mexican buffet at lunchtime was great.
If you are going to book a trip try going on to the beach and hook a left, you will go off the private beach after a few hundred yards will come across Buddah, his trips are cheaper than the hotels...some said it was because he wasn't insured but we think the hotel only pumps the trips out to others anyway. We did the quad biking through the beach guy and he appeared to be the only person making you wear skid lids...so make of that what you will. Also Ian Wrights double is selling paintngs on the beach to...lol.
To comment on a previous review , we were not charged for drinks at the disco and a premium vodka eg Absolute(no measures here either lol ) and a bottle of sprite was only $6.
Try some Mamamjuana that has been soaked in the 'wood' we never could find out the origin of the wood but it is meant to be an aphrodizzyac just try it....cannot possible comment on its powers but have had to bring some back.
Which brings me to the airport. If you have bottles of drink put them in your case wrapped in towels or something as we had ours confiscated only to go to Duty Free and purchase again. Also heard about the dubious overcharging of excess bagage....it then happened to the couple behind us. Rumour has it if you ask for a receipt and can only pay by Credit Card they let it drop, but I would check out my baggage allowance and have back up documents with me to verify my allowance and argue the point.
We will be going back to this resort and taking family young and old with us and I dont think I can give a better recommendation that that.
