This is my 3rd time at Emotions and it gets better and better everytime. The rooms are always clean and fresh and the food is good. Especially the Italian a la carte. I came with my family and some friends and we all agreed the entertainment was spectacular. Hector is our favorite! He always made sure we were having fun and taken care during the day and at the shows! The whole animation is great! Thank you once again Emotions! I am already planning my next vacation!

Food was average! Customer service wasn't all that great although i believe his name was Juan Luis the bar tender at the tiki tiki bar was amazing! He went above and beyond for my family and I! There was an issue with the reservation where they said that they couldn't find it and I even showed them my confirmation e-mail and We had to wait a little over 2 hours for them to finally tell us we were able to stay and get us a room. I wasn't too happy about that but overall it was an okay stay.

First time to the Dominican Republic and it was more then we expected. We traveled as a family of four, my husband and I and our two children. After reading reviews we decided on Emotions, and I'm glad we did. The location of the resort is superb. The food was actually quite good. The beach was a little rough in the afternoons so we went to beach in the mornings. There are many different activities to do during the day and our children loved them. Wall climb, batting cages, beach volley ball, arcade and more. Jose from animation was just amazing. He was always very helpful to us and had the patience to help our children with the wall climb and in the batting cages. Every day he would always check in with us to make sure we knew what the activities of the day were and to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. Our children loved him. He is a very funny young man and always has a smile on his face. Our children can not stop talking about him. He is definitely an asset to this resort. Emotions will be our go to vacation location. Our family can't wait to go back and see Jose.

Where do I begin!? This resort was amazing! Most importantly, Flor from the Kids Club was sensational. She treated our daughter SO well. She made the trip exceptional. If you have children, bring them here!!! If you don’t - come just to see Flor anyway. We LOVE her!! After the first day our daughter exclaimed she had a new best friend. We’re sorry we had to leave! The resort was relatively empty since it’s the low season, so we worried our daughter wouldn’t have kids her own age to play with, but Flor changed all of that. We can’t thank Flor enough!! She also is a great dancer! She hosted the mini disco every night and had our daughter up on the stage having so much fun! Jose is next - amazing!! Part of the animation team, he was so good to us and to our daughter. He was so sweet & kind! We did yoga, bingo, dancing - you name it! We loved Jose and the amazing energy he has. He always had a big smile on his face. We were sad to say goodbye, but we know we’ll back to see him again soon! Kennedy - the night bartender - he was amazing!!! So attentive & kind! I wish we could’ve stayed just for one more drink! He was always smiling and giving us an incredible experience. And he always taught me a touch of Spanish! Juan - the day bartender. So fabulous! He was kind, fast, and had the patience to teach us a little bit of Spanish each day. Jacqueline - I only saw her once, which was for a massage. She gave an amazing massage. So attentive and thorough! I would highly recommend getting a massage from her. Overall: The resort: it’s gorgeous. The rooms are spacious, the common areas kept clean, the beach is just a step away. There are plenty of pools and lounge chairs. Also, it was so safe! We rarely used the safe in the room, and nothing was ever taken. We were able to leave our belongings on the beach chairs while we went in the water. We walked to the mall (about 45 second walk) and felt safe. The food: fantastic! I’m a picky eater, but I was able to find something delicious at every meal! The drinks: typical resort drinks - tasty and flowing! The beach: so beautiful! The sand was so soft. They kept many shaded spots on the beach, which is great for my Irish skin. There are vendors on the beach - as there are at any public beach - but they aren’t aggressive or rude. A simple “no gracias” and they’re on their way. Wifi: so nice to have access to this at all places. We can keep in touch with family at home while enjoying vacation. The weekends: locals come on weekends to enjoy their days off - each one is a paying customer just like us. They are respectful & bring a lot of fun to the resort. The coffee shop: soooooo good! You have to see Oriani after dinner and get a coffee from her! The room: was kept clean every day, the fridge always stocked and the towels always refreshed. I hope this convinces you to go to this resort!! If you enjoy nice people, a beautiful atomosphere and want to have a good time... come here! We found our “forever home” in the Dominican!!
