I got this trip from my husband as a birthday present. We went there in the end of Januray 2017. The Hotel is really big, has more than 10 buildings (all 3-stories). It really is a resort, you go in, and dont feel the need to get out of there. There is everything you need inside. All facilities, and room...

The hotel location and infrastructure are excellent, however it s not really all inclusive: basic activities such as kids swiming pool, Jakuzzi and basic kids games are not included. The Golf green fee is free but you have to pay $75 per head for the cart. The worst is the food and drinks: food is heated frozen food, wine tastes...

PLUS: family suite (8400 area) was excellent: two large bedrooms, two balconies, one with jacuzzi, bathroom with rain shower, mini-refrig stocked with water, milk, juices. Water park was nice. Water sports -- we used kayak - fun! There's always some place to go to get a meal. There's lots to like about having everything (almost) included. MINUS: buffet food was...

Tried to check in at 130, but the room wasn't ready which was fine so they said to come back at 3. Came back at 3 and stood at the desk for...

Love this place! I went with my husband and daughter last year for Spring break and going back this year again. Very clean, the gardens are beautiful, the food is delicious. We spend 8 days in heaven.

This place exceeded my expectation and the staff make you love the DR even more. Plenty of things to keep you busy. The pool areas are nice and I love the swim up bar to get a quick drink. The Casino is fun and not overwhelming.

Orlando Diaz was Rude and the other employee backed us up when we was out of line. WAS NOTHING LIKE WHEN I WAS THERE 4 YEARS AGO. I was hoping for a great experience like I had the first time. Food was poor and the staff seemed like no one knew what was going on with every situation.

I reserved a $560/night junior suite for 1 night. The room was not ready when we arrived at 2:30pm so sat in the lobby until 3pm. Still not ready. Under pressure the check-in desk assigned us to another junior suite - smoking room with twin beds. Not what I had requested. I voiced my displeasure to the bellman and then...

The hotel is pretty much decent to above average. I have been to this property maybe six or seven times in the last four years. Employees don't seem to go out of their way to accommodate a returning customer. I checked in with the premium level.
