Travelled to the Dominican Republic for the first time and was not disappointed!! Clean grounds and rooms, enough selection at the buffets to satisfy even a picky eater, beaches were lovely but rough during our stay so did not get to take advantage as much as would have liked. The public beach side had sand that absolutely burned my feet......

The landscaping of this resort is above average it's excellent there are pools & hot tub's which are called Jacuzzi hanging off the edge of the cliff, honey coloured sand beach. Lots...

The hotel was fine... a little run down, but scrupulously clean and the staff did not skimp on the linens and towels.... the food was good, for resort food. The only problem is the ignorant smokers, huffing poison all over people who really do not want to inhale it, constantly. If the management made half the resort non-smoking, we would...

Nice resort with very nice grounds, pools were great. Rooms need a major reno. Good location. The entertanment was very cheesy. Deal breaker: the food, HORRIBLE, too bad this could be a great place if the food was good.

R & R?! Yeah...more like quick-rising blood pressure trials. What a waste of my money and a waste of time for my daughter and I. Oh wait...I can't finish my review right now, the internet I just paid for doesn't work in my room!! -Staff couldn't care any less -Sub-standard room, no better than a $20/night motel along the interstate...

When we booked this resort, as a larger group and travelling during high season (March Break) the biggest selling feature was the price. We were willing to go with a budget style resort if it meant a week in the sun. This review will be a little lengthy but presented in fine detail and please feel free to let me...

We stayed in the Puerto Plata area for 3 weeks in February/March 2017 and spent the last week at the Reef. It was great to be right in Sosua within walking distance of the main Sosua beach and the shops and restaurants. We enjoyed the Reef which offered reasonable amenities for a 4 star. We booked an ocean view room...
