Recently returned from punta Cana with emptiness. Staying at this particular hotel was quite disappointing. Hotel is tired and old. The rooms are full of odor. Plenty of leaky walls. Bathrooms are old. Ants everywhere. Room service was awful. Many nights we returned to room in evening and rooms weren't cleaned.. The lobby is like visiting grandmas house. Trying to be luxurious but worn out. The pool area is a joke. Pools are so old and need major renovation.. Too small for the crowd. Lots of nastiness at pool area (twerking ). I have kids and didn't seem it was kid friendly. The beach is full of seaweed. Windy and gusty waves. However pool and beach are only few steps. The restaurants are nice. The buffet had plenty to offer. Good choices. The theatre was old. However staff was superb. Staff was a hit or miss.. Victor at pool area was wonderful. Anny at restaurant was a delight. Entertainment was cheap... Boring on many nights. I definately will return to Dominican Republic but Will NOT return to this old worn out hotel.. Punta Cana is gorgeous and I felt I did not completely get the rush of visiting such a beautiful island.
