We stayed at the hotel for our friends' wedding and had nothing but a great time. None of our group had any of the problems other people have described on this site, I can only guess that others have just been very unlucky.
A ~45 minute transfer from Punta Cana (good start already!) ended with a courtesy glass of champagne at the hotel reception and a quick and painless checkin. We found all of the staff to be nothing but genuinely friendly the whole time we were there, food in the buffet and restaurants was consistently good and the rooms kept clean and tidy.
Of note was Andreas from Grigri Diving who gave us a scuba taster session in the main pool. An excellent teacher and funny too, we found the experience so enjoyable that we signed up for a proper dive the following day. I can't recommend this enough!
The only warning I'll give is that this isn't a place for peace and quiet. This isn't a reflection on the hotel, just that several hundred people in one location looking to enjoy themselves doesn't make for a noiseless environment.
Overall, both my partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Time and money permitting, a return trip is a distinct possibility.
