This resort is a perfect size, not too big but large enough so you don't feel cramped by other vacationers. It has a beautiful beach, with the opportunity to enjoy quality snorkeling close to the beach. There are plenty of activities to participate or not, the staff are very friendly who arrange these activities. We are ETC members and our...

Reviewed March 16, 2017

First-time to Dominican republic, airport was awful, took 2 hours of snaking in a line to pay the 10 $ for entry. Immigration form hand over was further along the queue, then someone collected half the receipt for the 10$, then more queuing to get through passport control. Once through coach journey to hotel was fine, about 15 minutes. Guide...

The resort grounds were pretty, pool was ok, beach was nice.... But if you need to eat food to generate energy for your body (aka you're a living being), do not go here. I can't express in words how disgusting the food was. I am not picky, but the quality of this food was so questionable. I imagine it was...

The food at the restaurants was awesome especially the Japanese. The customer is was very good and most people were friendly. The resort was clean and had lots of activities for all...

Ignore all the negative reviews..this resort was amazing! My boyfriend and I were here April 11 for 1 week. Check in was super fast and they were able to accommodate a king size bed and gave us a few options of which villa we prefer. We ended up across from the pool and very close to the beach. We loved...

Extremely noisy as the resort next door (Pearl Resort) is blasting its music from 12pm until 8pm. If your room is next to that resort you will feel the vibrations in your room... The wi-fi is terrible (no connections in the room). Check in super slow.

Employees have always their faces close, no smile. We have talk to 2 managers and they couldn't do anything, one manager has offered us a bottle of champagne which that we never received until now. But we were happy anyway.

I don't recommend upgrading to privledge I got a honeymoon suite and it was exactly the same room as my buddy's, the only thing that was nice is that you had your own section to eat breakfast and you got seated faster.

Very good beach where you could actually go in the water without cutting your feet on coral. Lots to do on the resort. Excellent food and service. Rooms were a bit dated. It very clean and had an excellent bed, very comfortable.
