Pros: Beautiful hotel & grounds, best beach & food was fine. Maria, hostess at the pool restaurant was so sweet and Sarah in the lobby bar area was the best! We loved her! Cons: I have been to several all-inclusive resorts and the drinks were the worst - mostly water. Pool and beach bar bartenders (guys only) were SO rude... More

For an all inclusive the food was less than appealing. Rooms were clean but not modern, bathroom had a huge tub but a shoebox for a shower. Hmm I'm spending all day in the pool or ocean I think a shower bigger than my pantry is more needed than a bath tub that takes up half the room.

Best bartender hands down. Funny, energetic and amusing! Made our experience 10x better. He treated us like a hermano! When you go to a bar ask for Juan Ramon, he will make your day and time that much better! Gracias para todo Juan Ramon y Catalonia Bavaro!!

When we arrived our fridge, tub plug, patio door was broken, our tv didn't work. The rollaway bed for my daughter was broken causing my daughter to roll off during the middle of the night due to lack of springs.

I don't understand how anyone could be so miserable that they would write a bad review on this resort. If people would stop focusing on the negatives and have a better attitude, they would have a much more enjoyable experience.
