“ok for a couple of nights”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

We were a bit apprehensive about the hotel having read the reviews, but chose it to start our holiday in the DR since we found a good deal. The room was spacious enough for the two of us, shower ok albeit the bathroom a bit run down. Yes there are bugs but when in tropical weather that's to be expected - bring the repellant with you. Since we needed some downtime to unwind from work, the couple of days here were fine. Any longer and we would have been bored as there really is not a lot to do in Bavaro (and the resident hotel club whilst playing good music doesn't have many people). The food was just ok and the drinks in the pool bar good fun (though the staff do take a bit of time to warm to admittedly). So passable but nothing to rave home about...
