Let me start by saying ...this is not 5 star let alone 4 BUT I didn't pay for that so was prepared .
In October I went for a 5 star all in option to dom rep and had it all ...fine dining,turn down service blah blah ..none of which my kiddies would appreciate .
Looking on here before hand I was prepared for the worst but at only 1200 for 6 of us all inclusive it was a bargain .
Yes there are airplanes going over (sat was all day long- So the 2nd sat I chose to go to Oasis park for the day )but didn't distract from having fun
Yes the pool is ffffrrrrreeeezzziiinnng bbbbrrrrr but didn't stop the kids being in and out all day long .
Yes it's a little dated but very clean ,looked like new mattresses and the maids are in and out often.
Yes it's on a little hill but only a few mins to market or the town and a couple more to the beach .I have mobility problems but didnt have a problem around the resort or hotel as there are ramps everywhere .
Yes the food isn't a la carte but wasn't expecting it .Breakfast was brilliant everyday - kids had full English ,pancakes,pastries,cereals most days .Lunch and dinner were a bit hit and miss for me but I'm picky (in the main restaurant) BUT there was always fresh salads,breads,cold meats ,cheese and pasta so I never went hungry.
The pool bar served hotdogs,chips,toasties and sandwiches with fresh fruit and ice cream from 10-6pm so we tended to stay by the pool for lunch .A few days we booked packet lunches for the next day (ham and cheese sandwiches,biscuits,fruit and water)The kids ate it so couldn't of been bad .
As for the staff didn't have a bad experience with 1 person ..the cleaners were lovely , restaurant staff very friendly -Linda was always smiling .
The entertainment staff Emillio and Lukas were second to none ...kept my kids entertained most of the day and night .
So if you are looking for a budget holiday you can't go far wrong really .
Taxi only 10 euros 1 way(airport) for a large 9 seater.
Oasis park was lovely for the kids.
The main beach was clean and clear waters .
The best Wi-Fi I found for quick updating was popping into 1 of the hyperdinos (like a Tesco express).There is 1 a 3 min walk from main hotel reception and 2 further in town.All you do is go in search , put the code in - it's by cash register -connect for free.Wander round shop ..I always bought fresh bread for the day as they cook it on site.I just say on bench outside or wall and did my internet bits skyped home etc staff didn't seem to mind .
Anyway I'll stop prattling on and I hope I've helped at least 1 person .
