I had chosen this resort as I particularly liked the 2 sections of room: Living room and bedroom divided by 2 steps. I was pleasantly surprised by my bathroom. Everything about this resort was perfect. I travel 3 to 4 times every year in the Caribbean and this was my second time in Dominican Republic, my first in Punta Cana. The snack bar buffet was so diversified that I ate both breakfast and lunch there every day. The beach is amazing and I had been told I would get bored of saying NO to vendors. I am pleased to say only one day trips vendor came to me on my first day; I told him I would not buy any during the week as I was there to rest and he never came back to me and I wasn't bothered at all by anyone else. I ate 4 times at a la carte restaurants: the steakhouse was my favorite in a country atmosphere. I also ate at japanese, seafood and mexican. This resort mostly excels at service: bartenders, waiters and entertainers go out of their way to make your stay a joyful one! You witness their joie de vivre and enthusiasm and it is communicative. Travelling solo, and even though I never met anyone during my stay, I never felt lonely as the animation team is very dynamic. Although I don't participate in any activities, they kept entertaining me, chatting with me and they were activities to watch all day long. At night, at the lobby, they were activities from 8 to 11:30 so I was never bored. A special shout out to "Swagger", the entertainer, I don't know how he can stay so energetic day after day and always smiling working from 10 to 1 each day. BRAVO! I have been to resorts where I couldn't wait to go back home, I know I can visit this one for 2 weeks and still will not want to leave... The flamingos in the ponds were also fun to watch. The gardens are quite beautiful. My fridge was replenished everyday. Oh, and beach is truly perfect... Don't hesitate! GO!
