My husband and I were here from March 19 to 26th. While we were checking in, the man at the front desk told us, before we had even seen the room, to come back the next day and he would give us another room. When we got to the room we saw why. We had an attic room, which was...

Once we booked our trip and then read some of the reviews we all were a little scared of going to this resort. Well if you're like us, don't be scared at all! The 4 of us, all 21 year old girls, went on March Break so the resort was booked solid. Check in went great, we were met with...

Pros: The resort rooms and amenities are very nice. The room we were in had a small kitchen - with a stove, fridge and sink. The bathroom was a nice size and everything seemed nicely updated. We had a small dinning area and a nice sized private balcony. Other members of our parties had "The Suite" and they actually had...

Stayed the week of March 8-15 and overall we were pretty happy with everything. However, a warning to those going for March Break: on our second last day, a ridiculous swarm of high schoolers came down for a grad trip, multiplying the wait time at the bar by tenfold and the [--] factor by a million-fold. Although there is some...

There was a group of five of us that were there from March 6 - 15th, with three rooms in totally different areas of the hotel. Even with the recent hotel upgrades I'd say this was a 3 1/2 star at best (I've travelled numerous times to this area staying at different hotels each time, Punta Cana, Cuba, and San...

We travelled to Puerto Plata with another couple. When we arrived at the hotel we were scared because the look from the outside is not that appealing. As soon as we entered the lobby all of that changed as it was beautiful, fresh and clean. We checked in and the staff was very pleasant. We were with room keys in...

I've read other reviews and some people are just being harsh and picky...Sure the service wasn't the greatest, but remember you are not at a Sandals nor are you paying the price for 5* service. The rooms were clean - the resort immaculate!! the food was good but the al a carte restaurants were even...
