“Great Vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2008

Great Vacation
Arrived in Punta Cana March 17 about noon from Halifax. The flight was fine. Check in when we arrived was very fast 5 minutes maybe. We then headed to our room which was ready, wonderful. We changed and headed to the pool. Pools very nice, two in center of complex and one at each end of the U shaped buildings. VIP pools. Service at bars friendly and fast Danny makes a awesome cappacino martini this is his specialty.
Food at buffet very good we could always find something to satisfy, we did not try the buffet at lunch but heard it was good. We usually ate at the beach buffet or what was being cooked on the beach that day. The a la cartes very good, because we were a party of two of we did not have any trouble getting into a la cartes no wait at all even if we went after 700pm.
Room service very quick, the club sandwich is great.
Rooms nice, new, clean, beds comfy, bathrooms large, tub on deck we used twice but our neighbors used it just about everyday. You can hear the water running next door when tub being used but conversations are never heard when jets on. Good thing!!
We had room 1465 our view was of the condos next door, no view of the beach but this was a nice view and very private.
The Beach was wonderful we love to walk and could walk in either direction for hours.
Use of computer is great and easy.
Bars in the evening were good. We visited them all. The Tantra Bar is a lot of fun. We partied with some fun Islanders there a few nights.
Resort full the week we were there and it was during the Easter weekend and we were not effected in anyway by the holiday.
Service great a lot of hard working staff everywhere, no shortage of them and always helpful.
I guess that is all we have to say it was a very relaxing and enjoyable trip. We did not have any issues at all!!!!
Have a good one

We stayed 3/19 to 3/26. We had a great time. Yes the dinner system is different but improving. Last year we stayed at the Riu Palace and I had to stand in line every morning to make a reservation. Here you stand in the evening. People need to understand 1300 people can not all be seated at once. Housekeeping needs more experience ( forgot towel twice but repalced them when asked). Staff is very friendly. I know for most people it it easer to complain. As we were checking in ( yes it took 15 minutes) a women behind us was already complaining! They saod they have more chairs on order. The chair situation was my only complaint but this is caused by the people who get there Two came to the pool at 8am took 12 chairs for their group and did not return till 11am!!!! Sorry but most people would rather compain than just relax!!!

Just returned from a week at the Edenh. Please do not believe everything you read! This is my 6th trip to DR and have always stayed at 5 apple resorts. The hotel is clean, well-staffed, good food, nice pool, etc. The hotel was sold out because of it being Holy week. We were able to eat at the Hibachi, Italian and American Grille, which were all pretty good. There are no reservations--if someone from your group gets in line at 6:00 you will eat at 6:30 at that restaurant. There is waitress service at the beach and pool, The girls also bring trays of little sandwiches and cookies around during the day. There is also a woman cutting fresh fruit in the afternoon on the beach as well as a barbeque on the beach each day. The sports bar is a nice asset since the bowling alley isn't open--kids could play pool, cards and watch the basketball tournament on big screen tv.
Mosquitos---only on the back balcony.
Power outage---did happen one evening for about 20 mins but did not really interefere with anything--it was about 5:30 PM. I had a room w/o a hole in the bathroom wall but bring a shower curtain to hang just in case.

The grounds are nice, people are friendly, food is good, go and enjoy!

Just back from a fabulous vacation at the Edenh! We were lowly green banders and had a room overlooking the lively local scene - so no ocean view, no slippers in the room or anything like that - and we still had an absolutely wonderful time. In fact, I kind of preferred the local view. I mean, we were in the midst of the beautiful grounds of the Edenh all day. So it's not like we missed anything.

I don't think the chair war is as bad as people say (or maybe just not as bad as it was in the beginning). Shade though is definitely at a premium. If you want a shaded pavilion by the pool, you pretty much had to be out there by around 6:30 or so and you had to stay there til after security/staff went through and removed un-watched stuff. Umbrellas were still available by around 8 or 8:30 though. A lot of people were at the same spots by the pool all week long - you kind of find your spot, figure out when you need to get there, and adopt the same strategy all week long. Of course, we had a large group and were able to split the getting-up-early duty, so it might be more of a hassle if there are fewer of you.

Food at the a la cartes was sort of hit or miss. Not really worth standing in line. Sometimes too salty, sometimes just kind of not very good. So we never stood in line. If there was seating available when we ready to eat, we sat. If not, we didn't. We ended up spending about half our dinners at the a la cartes, half at the buffet. The great thing about the buffet is that there is plenty of food to choose from (unless you are vegetarian - slimmer pickings, for lunch and dinner anyway). I am a bit of a food snob and was able to find something I liked at every meal. Sitting outside at the buffet, by the fountains, was nice, especially at night with the moon. But the a la cartes were definitely a nice change of pace every other night or so - the food is no better but you get served, the tables are nicer, the restaurants were generally quieter than the cafeteria-like buffet interior, etc.

Best meal was breakfast, at the buffet.

Oh, and the self serve soft serve all day long!!!

Some things to bring: ones for tipping by the pool (for drinks and umbrellas or chairs, if you get help in the AM moving them); other small bills for buying souvenirs if you want (from either the gift shop or the annoying vendors down the beach); a dark sheet and thumbtacks for putting up over the open space if you've got a deluxe room and are sharing it with someone with whom you'd like a little more privacy when brushing your teeth or whatever; maybe a little light of some sort to put in the bathroom so you don't have to turn the big light on at night if you get up; books to read and games to play; sun screen (it is very expensive if you forget it); bug spray just in case (although we never used ours - I only saw two mosquitos all week - they spray the grounds every night).

Took our snorkeling gear but never even pulled it out of the suitcase. Didn't see anybody in a kayak or any other non motorized boat all week long. We were looking forward to the kayaking but it was just too windy. We ended up spending most of our time by the pool.

I don't know that I'll ever do another D.R. resort vacation because there are too many other places to go and things to do. But if I did, I would definitely look into Edenh.

Just returned from Eden H from March 19-26.... awesome. Here is the good news!
Mosquitoes - saw one in elevator - that was it!
Room - fantastic - had open bathroom concept and was with 15 year old son - took the suggestion and brought a dollar shower curtain down with us and it worked great!
Service - wonderful...always waited on. and we only had a green bracelet but found if you are genuinely nice to the staff they are nice to you. We found that some guests with the upgraded bracelets felt that they deserved so much more. It was funny. We were nicer to the staff and got waited on more...maybe this is the secret.

Reception - no line up.

No clock but received one first day on request The evening shows were fantastic!
Food - expected long line ups and for sure I waited 30-45 mins. to get in but so what.... enjoyed especially the Asian restaurant. The staff are the nicest. Met so many and all were nice. Alex at pool bar, Danny at Guest services, Antonio at the front desk.
Beach chairs - did get up every morning and put towels on chairs at 6 a.m. .... not a problem until a new group of tourists arrived on our last day and several were loud and obnoxious... took our towels and threw in sand and then took chairs.... never happened before this... the group that were there before them couldn't believe what was happening..not resort fault, just demanding visitors! They didn't think we knew who they were but we all did!

Beach was wonderful ..water warm, lots to do.

This is the 3rd time to this area , all at 5 stars and this was the best. If you go with a positive outlook and ignore the reviews you will be just fine but if you go looking for ever little thing to go wrong then it will. Some days the elevator didn't work to the fourth floor (we stayed in 1408) but guess what ...if you walked a few steps down the hall there were more elevators. So some found this a problem?
Hotel is beuatiful.All marble floors and fountains. Lots of happy people.

The resort next door tries to get you to go in and see there so called 5 resort. Don't go...they promise you a free week next year but you waste 2-3 hours as they try to pitch their resort. The atmoshere in theirs was hostile compared to Eden H.. And we never did receive our free week and wasted a beautiful afternoon looking at the next door resort!

Some complaints in this trip advisor mentioned too many security....they were wonderful...all dressed professionally in white and kept an eye on everything.

Yes we definitely will go back next year.

To all of you who have booked EdenH, go and have a great time.


We just got back on March 24. There where 9 of us from Ontario and 5 from Montreal.


The staff at the front desk where excellent and spoke English very well.


The rooms were nice even with the opening in it, we had room 1229 facing locals who were always having a good time. Bring a night light so as not to wake your roomate when using the washroom in the middle of the night.


The bars where great and if you like white wine it was great. Get the light coloured one it tastes good. Everyone else drank Red and thought it was good as well.


The Buffet was good, the Italian was great, and the Grill was good as well. We did not stand in line at 5:00p.m. to get a table but managed to get in to 2 of the a la cartes at 7:30 both evenings and there was 6 people in our group for dinner.


The pools are amazing. We where there during Easter week and the beach was Black Flagged Thursday and Friday. Not a big deal we sat by the pool anyways.


Got up at 6:30 every morning to get chairs and there was usually some left by 7:30. Got my chairs and sat and read til 8:00 in my PJ's.


Just ask some of the employees by the pool and they will get you umbrellas, chairs, towels for a tip.


You will have to buy adapters in the gift shop to plug anything in. The only plug in that we did not need an adaptor for was behind the TV. Some said they had no problem but could not plug in my phone charger and IPod charger.


This resort is great. Yes we upgraded to a pink bracelet which allowed us use of the VIP pool bars which was a plus. Gotta love Malibu Rum and Pinneapple juice YUMMY.


Go have a great time. The staff is wonderful, they all seem to enjoy their jobs.


What needs to improve is they need to open Beach Grill for breakfast at 6:30 a.m. for early risers instead of only having buffet open at 7:00 a.m.. Coffee down at the beach would be great at 6:30 in the morning.

Returned last night from a wonderful week at Edenh Resort. Had a fabulous vacation! The food was excellent, drinks cold, beautiful beach and pool areas. We flew Sunwing out of Charlottetown, which I would rate as fair at best. Staff really go out of their way to make sure that you have a great time!
