1. food rice beans everyday, breakfast dry eggs everyday. food sucks no varieties
2. beach covered with seaweed and rocks very dirty and lots of sellers offering all day,, everyday!
3. there is no day or night activities what so ever and if expecting to socialized with people don't bothered going there. we where about 15 people at the resort. my husband always asked the animation guy about the activities he always replied i got to ask my boss. even though we tried to ask him eveyday nothing was done. if you are planning on going for some dead vacation go there if not don't bother even if it's a free ticket. the truth from montreal QC to punta cana it 4hours from punta cana to the resort it 2hours. when you call sungwing or expedia the said about 30to60minute it a lie. we travel with our 11 months old baby it was a torture thank God we made it back. we went on march 13-20-2013. not alot of staff the hotel should close soon because there are no tourist. i said i was going to stop reading reviews but the reviews are true most of therm 3 stars sucks. no children activities or pool
