Don't go by the pictures on their website as the rooms look nothing like that. We arrived and rooms were not ready well after check in time. When we got to the room it was just starting to get cleaned so we waited outside for an hour for the room to get clean. When we got in the room it had water damage all over baseboards and furniture. I couldn't use drawers to put my clothes or hang them up. The shower was moldy. The toilet was clogged a few times during the 4 night stay. We had no hot water most of the trip. Customer service didn't care and all they offered me was a free night to come back which is never happening. The pool closes before it's dark and they ever had clean towels to give us to use at the pool. The food was awful and always full of flies. We were a family of 3 and the room only had 2 towels each day and they never brought us towels for the 3rd family member to shower. I would have called but couldn't since the phone in the room did not work so I had to walk far to ask for towels since room was far. You would think after that I would have 3 towels the next night and night nope just two. It was all around disappointing and would never go back again!!

I was curious to find a nice spot for my wedding guests in Dominican republic since I am from the town of bocachica and I really didn’t like the options I’ve had there… thanks to my travel lady, because she suggested this gem of a place. They’ve made my guest experience so nice and I’m really happy I chose them because I truly felt like my guest were protected and entertained. They had a great variety of food, and the beach was amazing and the pools are awesome too ! They had a great entertainment to keep my guests busy, and also to make memories with them. I’m never gonna forget this place.!
