I spent 7 days in Dominican. The resort was beautiful! The pools were great as were the beds to lie on to watch the ocean. But hands down the best part was the animation team: Mini mouse, Spaggetty, Chocolate, Speedy Gonzalez, Romeo, Shaggy, Droopy as well as Grace. They made the trip worth while. Would definitely go back just for... More

The biggest thing I can suggest is watch what you are eating. My boyfriend and I were there last week and found part of a knife in his corn on the cob. Activities should be planned better.
