Drove in from Punta Cana for a 3 night stay. There wasn't any valet parking, though there is a parking lot reserved for hotel guests directly off the street - just keep an eye out for the chickens and roosters that frequent the parking lot! Check in was without any problems - and we loved the cool towels and fruit... More
