I have read in so many reviews that people were frustrated or annoyed because the service is slow on the resorts in the DR. If you have never been to a Caribbean Island, then you probably would be frustrated. But, that is the way of life down there. I have never been to the DR, but I have been to Puerto Rico and the Bahamas. In Puerto Rico, when someone told you they would be somewhere at 8 am, we learned to not expect them until AT LEAST 8:30 - 9:00. These are not fast paced countries like the US. 5 minutes to them is more like 15 minutes..You are ON VACATION....where in the world could you possibly be in a hurry to go? Most restaurants in the States rush you through the courses to have quick table turn over....I can't imagine that this is the case at a resort in DR. They let you savour your meal and enjoy the company and dinner. I will get off of my soap box now...I just get tired of hearing about how slow the service is....you are on vacation...and you are in another country...sit back and relax, and enjoy!
