This was our final stop on our honeymoon. I had friends who highly recommended it and I can see why. It was fun, clean and a lot to do. The drinks were good, service was friendly, and the food was okay. Food and reservations are the reasons it is not getting five stars. There was plenty of it, however it was just okay. I compared it to another all Inclusive in DR and a recent Princess cruise. The other places were far superior. The Latin and Mediterranean restaurants were the best we tried. Also the reservations for dinner were a bit ridiculous. You had to secure a spot two days in advance in order for it not to be "full," however, once at restaurant there was always plenty of empty tables. Makes no sense to me.
Water aerobics was a blast, gym had everything one could want and was very clean, drinks were abundant and strong, grounds were impeccable.
Shuttle service was hit or miss. We would often walk to our destination before spotting a ride. Also, they were a no show on last day when I called for help with bags.
Overall, great spot and we would go again.
P.s. did a mtn/beach ATV with blue shirt guys outside gate on beach and it was PHENOMENAL. Tons of fun and only $65 for 2 hours per machine.
