Travelled during Aug. 16 -23 with my husband and 3 teens. Wasn't sure what to expect after reading all the bad reviews, so we expected the worst and guess what we were very impressed with the hotel, food was excellent and great assortment. I would highly recommend booking Transat Vacations Preference Club since they have separate buildings better maintained, private...

Three of my girlfriends and I returned home yesterday. I have been to Punta Cana several times and I think the Beach is amazing. The resort on the other hand is not. They serve Polar Vodka and brands of liquor I have never heard of, If you would like to purchase Absoloute Vodka you may for an additional charge. I...

First time I had been to the Dominican and did not know what to expect. Overall had a fab time and want to go back. The beach and resort was beautiful and I guess these out weighed my negatives. Staff were really friendly although I felt they are treated badly and with a lack of respect. Hardly any english people...

After reading some poor reviews I was quite worried about going to this hotel. I needn't have worried. The same thing happened before our holiday to Cozumel, Mexico last year, so I wouldn't worry too much. Some people will complain about anything and everything, we only had a few minor gripes so no problem. We stayed in the Royal Club...

Just got back after a week where we lost weight as the food was so bad. The a la carte restaurants would rank as a 1 or 2 at best. The rooms are old, dated and smell. The common topic of conversation with other guests was how many times you had to relocate rooms. Seems they just recycle people around...

Unfortunately, my fiance and I read the reviews AFTER booking our trip. We were quite apprehensive since many of the review were negative. While we really did enjoy the vacation, most of the negative reviews were either witnessed firsthand or through others we met at the resort. Check-In was not as much as a hassle as others have experienced...although there...

I have read some of the negative comments of this hotel. My wife and I went on our winter vacation and had a super time.
