“Beach wedding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Service at this resort was excellent, especially from Juan F and his whole crew. Our room was spotless every day thanks to Maria De Paula. excelent drinks from Roberto at the pool bar. Prompt check in and out from Selena and Juan. Fun entertainment from Bruno Mars, great and affordable excursions set up by Irena from Apple.

I recently returned from Punta Cana. There was about 40 of us there for a wedding. Honestly I would not return to this resort and I'm positive none of my friends will either. The restaurant service here is awful, it's extremely unorganized and the food is not good (breakfast is okay). We wanted to push a couple tables together (15 of us) and they refused until we just pushed them together ourselves. I don't get what the big deal was I mean it was a buffet and there were more than enough open tables. At another restaurant on the resort it took them 45 minutes to bring 3 beers to the table (5 of us) after reminding them several times. And these are just a few examples of our mishaps. The housekeeping is not great. The only thing I was pleased with was the service and entertainment at the pool. They were friendly and provided speedy service and the drinks were pretty good. I will say the wedding ceremony was beautiful thank god. Other than I didn't like that it's done right in front of all of the beach chairs. There was a group of random people like 10 feet away from us. The look of resort is nice. I recommend having at least one day of your trip planned for some kind of excursion. We did zip lining and it was awesome. My favorite part was driving through the countryside an seeing the real side of the Dominican Republic. I also recommend bringing a lot of pepto. I don't know what they put in the food or how they cook it but more than half of our group had really bad stomach aches within day 2 of being there.

It was a beautiful and safe resort. The beaches were pristine and the service was excellent. Ask for Juan F in the buffet and Conan for shows. They made our trip special. Make sure to bring some formal wear with you as several of the restaurants require it. The preferred club is the way to go. Access to several extra restaurants and pools, plus a private beach with much more comfortable chairs. Be aware that the 'garden view' rooms are a totally separate building a good half mile away, so if you are taking a large party, make sure to book the same type of room. The excursions were a LOT of fun, so make sure to check those out. Overall, we had a great time!

Just back from our second visit to NOW and a 50th Birthday celebration. We booked a preferred Ocean view room and were placed on the third floor, room 1374. It had a larger than average balcony which meant that you could see the ocean from the comfort of your bed. Last year we stayed on the fourth floor which offered a superior ocean view. Nonetheless we had a lovely room which the hotel decorated with balloons, banners, fruit, champagne and a birthday cake. A lovely surprise for my wife.

We visited the Spice, Mercure and Capers Restaurants at NOW and the Portofino at Secrets. My favourite was the Mercure. My wife and daughter preferred the Spice. But wherever we ate, we enjoyed a high level of service from the waiters - stand outs for us - Manuel, Jose Manuel, Nelson, Henry, Felix, Rosa and Gisella but everyone is friendly and genuinely wants you to have the best holiday. Angel Holgado (hotel manager) personally offered my wife his congratulations on her birthday - nice touch. He and Daniel (Asst Manager) are a credit to the AM Resort brand and I sincerely hope that Barcelona win the European Cup this year.
Would we return? - absolutely we've already booked for November.

Room Tip: Book a Preferred Ocean View Room and request 3rd/4th floor.

We had an excellent time. Our favorite employee was Arcenio Morla. He was very helpful and made sure our stay was everything we expected. The food was different than we were used to but found enough things we liked. The beaches were kept very clean and so was the hotel and grounds.

My partner and I stayed here in March and had a excellent holiday. We upgraded to preferred which was well worth it except for a couple of niggles. There were no upgrade rooms available so we kept our allocated room which was more than adequate and just got the package of extras. The only issue with this is it took most of the first week and many trips to preferred concierge to get the pillows we ordered, our toiletries restocked and turn down service which we should have had. On week 2 though our turn down housekeeper was a fantastic little lady called Rosa Maria who was always smiling and hugging us and made our room special. The hotel is clean, well maintained and set on the stunning Bavaro beach which has the finest whitest sand you will ever see. The sea can be a bit choppy but there were plenty of people in it. Lots complain about the seaweed but staff are constantly clearing it and this hotels beach was the cleanest. As part of preferred we had our own pool areas which was a blessing as it was spring break which unfortunately meant a large influx of loud, drunk and sometimes rude Americans. The hotel does carry out a lot of weddings which can result in people being moved to accommodate a wedding party and or large parties of people who like to take over. The choice of restaurants is great we liked the tepanaki/oriental best of all, followed by French and Italian then steakhouse then Mexican but that's just our taste. Special thanks to our pool butler Andrea and brilliant pool waitress Erica and to the lovely Merelyne (can't remember how to spell it now sorry) the hostess for the preferred restaurant and oriental restaurant who always made a fuss of us, and had the biggest smile 24/7. I can recommend a visit to the spa and hydrotherapy suite. I should also mention the entertainment team who never stopped from dawn til dusk, the make you tired watching them and are very talented, producing some amazing shows.

Amazing hotel, can not fault it at all. Ignore the whingers on here. The food is amazing. All seaweed is cleaned up daily. Would definitely recommend upgrading to premium. Went with a group of 40 and no one was ill. A few iffy stomachs but self inflicted after too many joyous nights in the club. Definitely take advantage of the saona Island trip. Pure paradise.
